Changes in NCAA Contact Rules
Share:    

With recent changes to NCAA recruiting contact rules, the summer has become an important time for families managing the tennis recruiting process.

Rules have changed for all NCAA divisions. Contact from college coaches - and in particular electronic and phone contact - is now permitted earlier than before. Here is information that every tennis family and all prospective student athletes need to know:
 

NCAA Division I

  • A questionnaire and camp brochure may be sent at any time.
  • A PSA may make an Unofficial Visit at any time (except during a Dead Period).
  • Starting September 1st of Junior Year, letters and emails can be sent to a PSA.
  • Starting July 1st after a PSA's Junior Year, once a week telephone calls and off campus contact is allowed.
  • Official visits may occur after the 1st day of a PSA's Senior Year.
 

NCAA Division II

Starting June 15th before a PSA's Junior Year, a NCAA Division II program:

  • May begin sending letters and emails.
  • Can begin making unlimited telephone calls and sending text messages.
  • May have off campus contact with a PSA and family.

Starting June 15th after a PSA's Junior Year, a NCAA Division II program :

  • Can provide an Official Visit.
  • A PSA may tryout on campus.
 

NCAA Division III

Division III tennis has fewer restrictions on email and phone calls:

  • Letters and emails may be sent at any time.
  • No limit on number of calls or when they can be made.

However, there are more stringent rules on in-person contact:

  • Off campus contact after a PSA's Junior Year.
  • Official visits may occur after the 1st day of PSA's Senior Year.
 

Understanding the various NCAA rules and how they apply to each division, is a critical component of managing the college recruiting process.
