New Division I/II Interpretation: Time Lapse Between Foreign Tours

On July 1, 2012, the academic and membership affairs staff issued an interpretation for both Division I and II institutions concerning the time lapse between foreign tours. Specifically, the staff confirmed that “that an institution shall not engage in a foreign tour in each sport more than once every four academic years as opposed to once every four calendar years.” This interpretation referenced NCAA Division I/II Bylaw (Time Lapse Between Foreign Tours).

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.
