Re: NCAA rules - explanations
OK, when or does this rule take effect?
Looks like the start school after high school rule is changing again. Now it looks that the effective date for most sports is pushed back to August 2011, and that tennis is pushed back to 2012.
The delayed-enrollment/organized-competition portion will not take effect until August 1, 2011 (August 1, 2012 for tennis student-athletes). The Amateurism Cabinet recommended the change, and the Legislative Council agreed that allowing extra time will help with education efforts.
But warning, this may not be the final rule, stay tune to the NCAA.org website if this might effect you.
