Daily Compliance Item- 5/8/13- Missed Class Time in Summer School

Hang Time is a men’s basketball student-athlete at Ocean State University (OSU).  Hang is going to enroll in classes and work out with the coaches this summer.  The coaches are putting together a schedule for workouts and want Hang to participate in skill instruction activities on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am to noon.  Hang will have class on those days at 11am.  Can Hang miss class to participate in these workouts?

No.  NCAA Official Interpretation- 6/11/10- Missed Class Time for Practice Activities (I) – states that a student-athlete may not miss class at any time (e.g., regular academic term, mini term, summer term) for practice activities, except when a team is traveling to an away-from-home contest and the practice is in conjunction with the contest.
