The Men’s Basketball Director of Operations at Ocean State University was asked to serve as an honorary captain for a local high school all-star game this weekend. The organizers of the event would like to get the community more involved to help increase attendance.
Is this permissible?
No. NCAA Official Interpretation- 10/26/89- Athletic department staff member’s involvement in high-school all-star game- states that an athletics department staff member from an NCAA member institution would be precluded from serving as an honorary captain at a state high school all-star game, inasmuch as such an arrangement would result in the indirect promotion of a high school all-star athletics contest.
