On February 14, 2012, the Interpretations and Legislation Committee recommended appointing a representative working group to examine current issues in NCAA Division III recruiting. The purpose of the group will be to address work/life balance and competitive equity under the Division III strategic-positioning platform’s desire for a collegiate experience that is “proportional.”
The need to review Division III recruiting parameters came about following the 2012 NCAA Convention when the Division III membership voiced concerns over the lack of boundaries for recruiting at this level. Two primary issues have been discussed to assist with developing better recruiting parameters: (1) the use of a recruitiing calendar; and (2) evaluations at nonscholastic events. The working group will be expected to deliver recommendations that would allow discussion among the Division III membership at the 2013 NCAA Convention with any legislative proposals being considered at the 2013 NCAA Convention.
