Daily Compliance Item- 9/10/13- 11.6.1- Scouting On-Campus

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.
