Paying for a kid

Post  abball on Tue Mar 29, 2011 11:59 pm

Now i know of someone who goes to a small d3 school not going to mention it. But the baseball team goes to florida every year. They have to come up with $800-$100 to go. But i have heard that one kid didnt have to pay a dime. The school paid for him to go. Now i dont know rules for this. But is this some type of violation? or is it perfectly normal

Is your information real? or from someone who heard it from someone?

Despite the issues we read about and hear about, 99% of the colleges & universities fully comply with the rules. Teams are allowed to fund raise for trips such as the southern swing baseball/softball trips all northern teams do. From my following of the NEWMAC basketball via the D3boards, I can tell you MIT went to Taiwan last summer & WPI went to Montreal this past fall.

Here are acouple of links to articles on the NCAA site that gives you some insight into this.

Basically, it is common for a team to set a goal for each player to raise. That does not mean the each player actually gets that amount. The money the team raises as a whole will be used to pay for each player. If you do a search of the NCAA site, you will find a series of articles over the past couple of years on this subject.

The bottom line - It is not a violation.
