Learn about these new recruiting rules that will become effective August 1,2017.

We know recruiting rules can be confusing so we are breaking down the latest rules update effective August 1, 2017. Below we will also have some definitions of terms, just so you can understand how these rules will effect your student athlete. 

 

  1. NON-INSTITUTIONAL CAMPS: ( Camps held not on the College Coaches Campus)  An institution’s coach or staff member with responsibilities specific to softball may be employed (either on a salaried or volunteer basis) in a non-institutional, privately owned camp or clinic ONLY during the recruiting calendar periods when evaluation at non-scholastic practice or competition activities is permitted (i.e., during the summer contact period and the six weekends prior to Thanksgiving).
  2. Evaluations at non-scholastic practice and competition activities shall not occur except on Saturdays and Sundays during the six weekends prior to Thanksgiving: 
    1. October 14 & 15
    2.  October 21 & 22
    3. October 28 & 29
    4.  November 4 & 5
    5.  November 11 & 12
    6.  November 18 & 19 

 

** Meaning- these are the ONLY 6 weekends in the fall of 2017 that College Coaches may attend/work non- institutional camps or attend exposure tournaments. Also  they will only be able to attend Saturday & Sunday, no more Thursdays or Fridays **

 

  1. During the Jan 2 - May 28, 2018 Evaluation period; Evaluation at non-scholastic practice and competition activities are prohibited.
  2. Dead periods surrounding the NLI signing segments, the NFCA National Convention, and the Women's College World Series remain in the recruiting calendar.

 

We also included the definitions of what the certain periods mean below: 

What is a contact?

A contact occurs any time a college coach says more than hello during a face-to-face contact with a college-bound student-athlete or his or her parents off the college’s campus.

What is a contact period?

During a contact period a college coach may have face-to-face contact with college-bound student-athletes or their parents, watch student-athletes compete and visit their high schools, and write or telephone student-athletes or their parents if they are age eligible.

What is an evaluation period?

During an evaluation period a college coach may watch college-bound student-athletes compete, visit their high schools, and write or telephone student-athletes or their parents. However, a college coach may not have face-to-face contact with college-bound student-athletes or their parents off the college’s campus during an evaluation period.

What is a quiet period?

During a quiet period, a college coach may only have face-to-face contact with college-bound student-athletes or their parents on the college’s campus.  A coach may not watch student-athletes compete (unless a competition occurs on the college’s campus) or visit their high schools. Coaches may write or telephone college-bound student-athletes or their parents if they are age eligible during this time.

What is a dead period?

During a dead period a college coach may not have face-to-face contact with college-bound student-athletes or their parents, and may not watch student-athletes compete or visit their high schools. Coaches may write and telephone student-athletes or their parents if they are age eligible during a dead period.
