As a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (“NCAA”), Rutgers University’s booster clubs must abide by NCAA rules and regulations as they relate to all aspects of its athletic program. In addition to ensuring that all of its coaches, administrators, University faculty and staff, and student-athletes are aware of and following NCAA rules, Rutgers booster clubs are also responsible for the actions of any individual who is a “representative of athletic interests.”
Compliance with NCAA rules requires the effort of everyone associated with an institution’s athletic program – institutional staff, faculty, students, student-athletes and representatives of athletic interests. In order to act within NCAA rules, it is important to understand not only the rules themselves, but also why the NCAA rules exist and why schools must monitor compliance with the rules.
The information contained in this site was developed to provide you with a general overview of key Division I NCAA rules and regulations. If you have any additional questions about NCAA rules and regulations, you should contact the NCAA directly or visit the NCAA website at www.ncaa.org.
