Daily Compliance Item- 3/19/13- Comp Admissions to a Staff Member’s relative

Ocean State University (OSU) baseball team is competing in away from home contests Friday and Saturday.  The games will be played in the sport administrator’s home town, so he would like for his two nephews to come watch.  If the nephews have reached prospect age, is it permissible for OSU to provide complimentary admissions?

Yes.  NCAA Staff Interpretation- 3/15/13-Complimentary Admissions to an Away-From-Home Contest for an Athletic Department Staff Member’s Relative who is a Prospective Student-Athlete (I)- states that an institution may provide complimentary admissions to an away-from-home contest to an athletic department staff member’s relative who is a prospective student-athlete.

[References: NCAA Division I Bylaws 13.02.12 (prospective student-athlete); 13.2 (offers and inducements); (general restrictions) and (general restrictions), and a staff interpretation (9/14/90, Item No. a), which has been archived]
