Daily Compliance Item- 4/8/13- 13.1.3.7- Camp Telephone Calls

The women’s basketball coaches at Ocean State University will be conducting camps this summer.  They have a lot of  campers registered but several have yet to send in all the required information.  Is it permissible for the director of basketball operations to telephone the campers’ parents to collect this information?

Yes.  NCAA Bylaw 13.1.3.7 states that telephone calls to an individual (or his or her parents, legal guardians, relatives or coach) that relate solely to institutional camp or clinic logistical issues (e.g., missing registration information) are not subject to the restrictions on telephone calls, provided no recruiting conversation or solicitation of particular individuals to attend a camp or clinic occurs during such calls.  (Adopted:  9/24/09)

NCAA Staff Interpretation- 4/4/13-Institutional Camps and Clinics during the July Evaluation Periods — Women’s Basketball (I)– states that in women’s basketball, institutional camps or clinics may occur during the July evaluation periods. Further, telephone calls to an individual (or his or her parents, legal guardians, relatives or coach) that relate solely to institutional camp or clinic logistical issues may occur during the July evaluation periods, provided no recruiting conversation or solicitation of particular individuals to attend a camp or clinic occurs during such calls.
