Daily Compliance Item- 1.19.16- Officiating Prospects’ Games

One of the Ocean State University men’s soccer coaches would like to earn some extra money during the off-season by officiating games in the area. Is this permissible even if some of the games include prospect aged participants? Yes. NCAA Bylaw states that an institution’s coach may officiate competition that involves prospective student-athletes, provided the competition is regularly scheduled under the authority of an outside sports organization.
