Re: 2010-11 recruiting - verbals & high interest
There's was a TRN article
that said the rule goes into effect in August 2010 but I think that article got it wrong.
The new rule is effective August 1, 2010 for all sports except tennis
Here's the proof below TRN got it wrong!
As anticipated, Proposal 2009-22 was adopted (note: Prop. 2009-22 amendments vote tally; pp 4, 9, 10) last Thursday, January 14, 2010, by the DI Legislative Council, pending Board of Directors review. There were significant last minute amendments pertaining to the effective date for tennis student athletes, now set for Aug. 1, 2011, and the exclusion of skiing from the scope of the proposal.
Congratulations to all involved in passing this important legislative piece. During the seven months leading to Aug. 1, 2010 (effective date but for tennis student athletes), a broad and in-depth membership educational effort will be needed for coaches, compliance staff, and other athletics administrators to fully realize recruiting opportunities and prepare for new challenges in this evolving era.
