Booster Information

The following information is provided by the Georgetown University Office of Compliance for alumni, boosters and prospective student-athletes. It is intended as a guideline to introduce some of the rules governing NCAA athletic involvement.

WHO IS PERMITTED TO RECRUIT FOR GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY'S ATHLETIC TEAMS?

Only Georgetown University's coaches who have successfully completed the NCAA Recruiting Rules Examination on an annual basis may be involved in the recruitment process. Representatives of athletics interests (alumni and boosters) MAY NOT make any recruiting contacts. This includes letters, e-mails, text messages, telephone calls or face-to-face contact on or off campus with a prospect or the prospect's parents.

WHO IS A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE?

One becomes a prospective student-athlete if they have started classes for the ninth grade. Before the ninth grade, one becomes a prospective student-athlete, if the college provides the prospect or their relatives or friends any financial aid or other benefits that the college does not provide to prospective students generally.

WHAT ARE A FEW ALUMNI AND BOOSTERS DO'S AND DON'TS?

DO's

  • You may forward information about a prospective student-athlete to the appropriate coaches.
  • You may have contact with a prospective student-athlete regarding permissible pre-enrollment activities such as summer employment, provided the prospect has signed a National Letter of Intent and the Compliance Office is aware that you are making these contacts in regard to employment.
  • You may have a telephone conversation with a prospect only if the prospect initiates the call. Such a call may not be pre-arranged by an institutional staff member and you are not permitted to have a recruiting conversation, but may exhibit normal civility. You must refer any questions about athletics programs to an athletics department staff member or coach.
  • You may view a prospect's contest at your own initiative provided you do not contact the prospect or his/her relatives. In addition, you may not contact a prospect's coach, principal or counselor in an attempt to evaluate the prospect.
  • You may continue established family relationships with friends and neighbors, as long as these relationships were started prior to the prospect entering the ninth grade. Any contacts with prospects of these families are permitted as long as they are not made for recruiting purposes or encouraged by Georgetown University coaches.

DON'Ts

  • You may not become involved in making arrangements to receive money or financial aid of any kind for a prospect or his/her relatives.
  • You may not make contact with a prospect and his/her relatives while the prospect is on campus for an official or unofficial recruiting visit.
  • You may not transport, pay or arrange for payment of transportation costs for a prospect and his/her relatives or friends to visit campus (or elsewhere).
  • You may not pay or arrange for payment of summer camp registration fees for a prospect.
  • You may not provide or promise anything to a prospect or his/her relatives without prior approval from the Compliance Office.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT THE GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY COMPLIANCE OFFICE.
