Break Point is a tennis student-athlete at Ocean State University. Break’s birthday is today, so the coaches would like to have cake and ice cream for Break and her teammates.
Is this permissible?
Yes. NCAA Bylaw 188.8.131.52 states that an institution may provide student-athletes with reasonable refreshments (e.g., soft drinks, snacks) for student-athlete educational and business meetings and, on an occasional basis, for celebratory events (e.g., birthdays). [R] (Adopted: 10/28/99)
