The Ocean State University (OSU) softball team has a home competition this weekend. Because it is one of the few home games OSU has in the month of February, there will likely be a lot parents in attendance. OSU is also hosting 2 prospects on official visits this weekend. Is it possible for the parents of the OSU student-athletes and the prospects and their families to have contact on-campus?
Yes. NCAA Bylaw 18.104.22.168(h) states that:
Relatives (or Legal Guardians) of Enrolled Student-Athletes. On-campus contacts between a prospective student-athlete or his or her relatives (traditional or nontraditional) or legal guardians accompanying the prospective student-athlete and the relatives (traditional and nontraditional) or legal guardians of an enrolled student-athlete.
