Why Compliance

  • This department operates with integrity and seeks to be the model for other Athletic Departments. As such, we have a moral obligation to follow the rules.

    Likelihood of us getting caught

    Only takes one disgruntled player or parent to make a call to another school or PSUAC

  • Inadvertent admission on Facebook

    • Do not say you are going to practice if you are going to play pick-up games at an open gym. There is a difference!


What happens if we commit violations?

  • A member institution that is found to have violated any provision of the USCAA, PSUAC and/or NCAA Division III rules are subject to sanctions:

    • Probation

    • Double Secret Probation

    • Loss of eligibility

    • Vacating wins/Championships

    • Reduction in games for the following season

    • Ban from post-season play in the PSUAC and/or USCAA


Representative of Athletic Interests

A representative of athletic interests is a person or organization that has a direct connection with our program

  • Your Parents

  • Booster Groups

  • Alumni

  • Staff


Representative of Athletic Interests

Why are they important?

  • We are responsible for their actions.

  • Without realizing it, they can create violations.

    • Recruiting on our behalf outside of the permitted rules and regulations

    • Providing improper benefits



NCAA Rule 16.01

Any benefit that is given to you that is not generally available to the average student.

Effects on eligibility

    • Football betting grids

    • Fantasy leagues where you pay a fee/win money.




A wager is any agreement in which an individual or entity agrees to give up an item of value in exchange for the possibility of gaining another item of value.

  • Permissible

    • ESPN Bracket Challenge

    • Online fantasy leagues where you do not pay an entry fee

      Rule of thumb:

      If you must pay to enter or give up something of value if you lose, it is probably not permissible
