Prospective Student-Athlete Timeframe Now Begins in 7th Grade

Legislation was adopted in 2009, for men's basketball only, to specify that for the purposes of applying the NCAA tryout rule and the regulations related to camps and clinics, a prospect is an individual who has started class for the seventh grade. It prevents Division I men's basketball coaches from working at non-scholastic elite camps for seventh and eighth graders and attending non-scholastic basketball camps and events (other than certified summer events) involving seventh or eighth grade participants. The proposal also prevents Division I men's basketball coaches from conducting institutional camps open only to elite level seventh and eighth graders.
