Daily Compliance Item- 8/16/12- Basketball Foreign Tour Participation Prior to Initial Enrollment

Back Court is an incoming freshman basketball student-athlete at Ocean State University.  The women’s basketball team will be participating in a foreign tour in France this week prior to the start of the 2012-13 academic year.  If Back participates in competitions on the foreign tour but does not compete in any games during the academic year, does she utilize a season of competition?


No.  NCAA Staff Interpretation- 1/28/11- Use of a Season of Competition for Participation in Summer Foreign Tour Prior to Initial Enrollment — Basketball (I)– states that in basketball, an incoming student-athlete (freshman or transfer) who participates on a foreign tour that occurs during the summer prior to his or her initial full-time enrollment at the certifying institution is not charged with a season of competition for such participation.
