The Ocean State University (OSU) volleyball team is hosting two teams this weekend. Here is the schedule:
OSU will play team A friday night.
Team A will play team B Saturday afternoon
OSU will play team B Sunday afternoon
The OSU coaches would like to scout during saturday’s game. Is this permissible?
Yes. NCAA Staff Interpretation- 9/9/13- On-Campus, In-Person Scouting of Opponents (I) – states that the prohibition against off-campus, in-person scouting of opponents is not applicable to an institution’s coaching staff in a situation in which a competition involving a future opponent occurs on the coaching staff’s campus.
