New Division II Interpretation: Institutional Camp or Clinic that Does Not Include an Educational or Instructional Component

On May 7, 2012, the Interpretations Subcommittee of the NCAA Division II Legislation Committee issued an interpretation concerning institutional camps or clinics that do not include an educational or instructional component. Specifically, the staff determined that “the purpose of an institutional sports camp or clinic is to place special emphasis on a particular sport or sports and provide specialized instruction, practice or competition. Therefore, an institutional camp or clinic may be comprised of competition only and does not require an educational or instructional component.”

This interpretation reference NCAA Division II Bylaws (purposes of camps or clinics).

In light of this interpretation, the Michael L. Buckner Law Firm recommends institutions’ athletics compliance include the interpretation in the next scheduled rules-education session for the athletics staff and coaches.
