NCAA Rules in Plain English

By Kelly Klein

The Division I rules manual is nearly 400 pages long. Even if you had the time to invest into reading the manual, you would need an attorney to interpret all of the rules. Our ultimate goal at ACC is to keep you informed. We will give you consistent updates on changes to the NCAA rules and explain them in plain English. 

Many cases of students jeopardizing their eligibility to swim in college have occurred because they were not fully educated on how this can happen. This is why we ensure all of the students who sign up for our program know the rules. 

This is especially crucial when it comes to handling scholarships. When new NCAA rules are released, changes can be made to the way coaches allot scholarships. We will keep you up to speed on these new rules so they never affect your eligibility for a scholarship. 

There are vast differences in recruiting rules for D-I, D-II, D-III and NAIA schools. We will make sure you are aware of the important dates and timelines associated with recruiting in each division so you never miss a step in the process. If you miss a deadline that you didn’t know about, there is a good possibility that you would not be eligible to attend a particular school. We make sure this does not happen to our students. 

You can trust ACC to keep you educated on the ins-and-outs of the NCAA so you are fully engaged and prepared during the recruiting process.
