If it looks like a baseball drill, the coach may not do it. Recreate is not doing drills. Recreate is playing. I have a question about accepting prize money from cycling races I compete in over the summer. I was wondering if it would be permissible that if I were to win any cash prize, that I could accept only the amount of entry for the race? Our amateur status rules which the member schools have put into effect limit student-athletes from receiving benefits from athletic achievements in WIAA recognized sports. Thus, since the Association does not presently sponsor interscholastic cycling amateur status restrictions do not apply to your cycling achievements. Current WIAA recognized sports are: I am the association manager of our local bowling association, and I have a young gentleman that will be going out for the high school golf team and wants to bowl in a USBC sanctioned league. There will be prize money at the end of the bowling season which will be the second week of April. What is his eligibility or penalty if he participates up to the beginning of the season, or during the season? He is under 18 and his parents have signed a USBC waiver? Thus, since the Association does not presently sponsor interscholastic bowling amateur status restrictions do not apply. I represent a free publication in the Madison area. We would like to highlight two area high school athletes. There will obviously be no compensation, just an interview and photos. Do you foresee any problems or violations? Articles published by news gathering publications have been acceptable by our member's rules. Your concerns may revolve around amateur status. Athletes may not appear in ads promoting a publication, product, or service whether they receive compensation or not. I own a local running store, and we are going to be doing a team building event for the store at a fun run on February 13, I have two students athletes that work for me, and I don't want it to affect their track eligibility. They both own jerseys with our store name on them already, so they will not be receiving any prizes or benefit from running on the team. Please let me know if they can run on the store team for this event without making them ineligible for the track season. The students may run since it will be during the off season for both cross country and track. They may compete on the team, but cannot receive any benefits other than a trophy, etc. They could wear the t-shirts, but you would want to refrain from using any photos with them in any advertising. Can a club volleyball organization, not associated with the school, give a scholarship to a 9th grade student to pay her fees for the club? The club wanted to ask to make sure that if they scholarship her fees, that she does not lose amateur status. So long as any student who wants to have fees paid for the opportunity can also get reimbursed. Athletes may only have reimbursement for actual and necessary costs associated with transportation, food, lodging and entry fees paid in connection with playing a contest. This opportunity may not be a "benefit" based on performance, e. My varsity girls basketball team has asked if it is legal for a private party to purchase pink shoes for them to wear in a game for cancer fundraiser. My response is that if the private party wants to purchase them for any girl in our school who would be interested in them it would be ok. Just for the varsity girls basketball team would not be allowed. Am I correct? Then they said what if the private party donated the money to the basketball booster club and the club purchased the shoes for the team? My response was that I would not allow it because I viewed it as a way of skirting the rule. Am I correct there as well? You are correct. If the private group the booster club is not considered school wanted to purchase the shoes and gift them to the school, the school could issue them as part of the uniform. At the end of the season, the school could sell them to the players for a reasonable not outrageous price or the school should keep them. We are having a conference showcase on January All conference girls teams will play that day. I was going to have a couple of players from the corresponding boys teams compete in a 3 pt. Is that ok? As you have described the contest, this would not meet our membership rules. Our Rules of Eligibility page 37 of the WIAA Handbook state a student becomes ineligible in a sport for the remainder of the season for competing in nonschool game, meet, or contest in the same sport during the season of practice or competition established by the school ROE, VIA. In addition, our membership rules of amateur status state: A student may not receive such merchandise items as shirts, jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts, jerseys, warm-ups, equipment, balls, duffel bags, backpacks, watches, rings, billfolds, coupons, gift certificates, e. Question on awards for representatives for our school for Wendy's High School Heisman. I believe every school that has students fill out the forms receives one boys winner and one girls winner. Article IV, Section 1, B. Just wondering if I am taking this too literally. A student could participate in the contest — but is not able to accept or direct to school or any other person or place, the various cash awards which are mentioned. My guess is no as this would essentially be the same as the student athlete accepting the cash award. The answer to your question is that a student athlete may NOT direct to another, reimbursement or award in any form a salary, b cash, merchandise of any kind or amount or d share of game or season proceeds, for achievement in athletics. Some additional detail for random draw based contests: Thus, you must always see the person whose name is drawn is the person that "performs" the skill. This year, our team wore a small helmet sticker on the back of our helmets honoring a classmate of our seniors who had passed away in elementary school. In honor of that, the mother of the former classmate we had honored approached me about the possibility of her purchasing from our school the jerseys of our seniors, who were the classmates of her late son. She wanted to give them as a gift their home game jerseys that they had worn this year. I was wondering if this was acceptable. Would she have to wait and give it to them after they graduated from high school? She would like to give them to them for Christmas. I didn't want to do anything to hurt their eligibility. Our membership rules pertaining to amateur status allow students to purchase uniforms from schools according to the procedures in place by the administration and board of education. If your school has a practice of allowing anyone and everyone the opportunity to purchase used uniforms, then the situation as you describe it may be done. If your school does not have a practice in place of allowing anyone and everyone the opportunity to purchase used uniforms, I suggest that you go to your administration and board of education to establish such a program in order to satisfy the amateur status rule. As far as a team goes, however, can a sport teams' fund-raised money be used to supplement all players purchase of something like polo shirts or warm-ups? Reimbursement may only be for transportation, lodging, and food for competition from an outside group or school. A t-shirt is allowed, but polo shirts or warm ups are not. The owner of a pizza parlor has shown interested in making a donation to the program in return for advertising in the form of a half-court shot contest. For each home game, we would randomly select one fan in attendance and give them a chance at the "X half court super shot" or something similar. Anyone who makes the shot wins a gift certificate to the restaurant, with the certificate being provided by the pizza parlor. If they have a banner, I would offer to place that in the gym, and a few announcements would be made during the game to plug the contest and the pizza parlor. Before I return the call and start talking about anything substantial like donation size, I want to make sure I have the green light here. As described — this is OK provided everyone has the opportunity through random draw. If everyone who buys a ticket gets the opportunity: XI, Rules of Eligibility Art. When looking at random draws: Be sure your number is broad and not skewed 'by just the JV players sitting in the bleacher's when lucky ticket's drawn' Opportunity is then no longer, random. This may only be done during regular season games and not WIAA tournament games. Is it a violation for a booster club to pay for a Tri-State All-Star game fee out-of-season for a senior athlete? A student may be reimbursed actual and necessary costs associated with competing. This may include transportation, food, lodging, and entry fees. I have a niece that races go-carts in the summer and receives trophies, ribbons, etc. She also receives a payout at the end of the season. She is a freshman this year, and I am wondering if this will affect her amateur status. Will she be able to participate in school athletics? Thus — since the Association does not presently sponsor interscholastic go-carting, amateur status restrictions do not apply. Same as we do not sponsor lumberjack events, bass fishing, snowmobiling, motocross, BMX or rodeo, e. On the other hand however - even though student plays school football, basketball and baseball — and then while golfing with dad or buddy in summer event hits closest to the pin and wins a sleeve of balls, or sandwich at the club house, or a new driver, e. I am the site director for a hockey training facility. We are looking to sponsor a player of the week for one of the Web sites that covers hockey and already awards a player of the week. I was hoping that you could verify that this is not a violation of any rules and we will not get any players into trouble by sponsoring the player of the week. I was also wondering if it would be legal for us to give a free team or individual training session to each player that is honored with the player of the week award? Sponsors can be used for a player of the week if done properly. We would be happy to review your plan to ensure no violations to amateur status for the athletes. As for an award or benefit, athletes may not receive discounts for merchandise or services unless offered to ALL students. Please refer to our rules on our Web site. Is there a way that a club can legally provide financial assistance to a family of an athlete who can not afford the full club program? If a club wishes to reimburse, they may do so provided: ANY student who wants to have fees paid for the opportunity can also get reimbursed. This opportunity may not be a "benefit" based on performance,e. Athletes may be reimbursed actual and necessary costs associated with competition. I am the boys basketball coach at a member school. We are playing in a holiday tournament over Christmas break this year and are thinking about staying overnight in a hotel. I was wondering if it would be legal for our booster club to help pay some of the cost of the hotels or if the school would have to pick up the entire bill. I just want to make sure that we handle this correctly so we're not violating any rules. This can get done — in either of a couple ways. Both "work" within our member's rules. Since our Bylaws and Amateur status rules provide that "costs associated with competition" can be reimbursed, the boosters could either pay the hotel bill directly or they could "gift the school" the necessary amount and the school could cut the check. There might even be some tax exempt benefit to the second way. But either way will work within the rules. Our volleyball team would like to go see another team play as a team. Can our coach pay for them to get into the game? Can they use money they raised though fundraisers? Or do they each have to pay their own way into the game? As a form of entertainment, this is acceptable. It is viewed as "group entertainment" and permitted by the Bylaws and Rules of Eligibility. In addition, the payment can be from any source provided it is offered to everyone. Wanted to clear with you any potential conflict we could avoid with Web site video we are planning to shoot in September for our clinic. We are doing a 60 second video, and some 30 second clips of our clinic to describe who we are and what we do. We will be getting consents of any minors see attached form and they will not receive any type of financial reimbursement or remuneration. In addition, they will not have on any team logo gear. Is there anything else they or we should or would need to be cautious of as the last thing we would ever want to do is risk or even question ANY eligibility? Thanks for checking in advance. Being paid is only a portion of the member's provision. It also talks about "being identified as an athlete". There are three ways most common in considering a student having been identified — by text or spoken word, by apparel and by props. Apparel does not necessarily need to be just the school's uniform to convey the student is an athlete. Best advice, best practice is to use young adults — recent graduates — who have no high school eligibility remaining. Another best practice recommendation is to simply use actors — students who are not athletes at all — then you have far greater liberties. When I say it's best practice, it's because of our many experiences where one promotion stimulates another in a neighboring business and that business owner does not take the precautions you have contemplated, does not contact us as you have — and does harm to another member's students. Since we try to help all of our members we must maintain that awareness of the connection of all that goes on. If you would like us to preview your idea before you launch it we will be happy to do so. Can a business put a high school team logo s in their ads in support of their local team s? With permission of the school due to licensing issues, you may do so. When athletes are involved, the rules are more strict. We own a hockey pro shop and would like to give a 10 percent discount to all high school hockey players in the area. Player comes in to purchase a piece of equipment and they say they are on the ABC team, and we make sure they are on the roster that we received from their coach and then we give them the 10 percent. Is this okay to do? Our membership rules require the athletes who participate in WIAA athletics be amateur athletes. In the situation which you stated, would be a violation of our rules. This includes but is not limited to: I have a couple returning starters who will be seniors that would like their jersey from last year to take senior pictures that are scheduled before the start of try-outs. Is this legal per WIAA? As long as your school allows uniforms to be issued in the summertime and your athletes comply with the amateur status rules, this would not be a problem. There are times when photographers may wish to display pictures of students in athletic wear in their studio, etc. The students should not receive any cash or merchandise in the form of discounts in the cost of the picture, waiver of sitting fees, free wallet-size photos, and similar inducements if identified as an athlete or selected because of being an athlete. The athlete may not provide an endorsement in any promotional event for the photographer. Below you will find the text of an offer extended to our school that would use some of our athletes in a commercial. Would this be a problem regarding amateur status? It is a newer product on the frozen pizza market. We are putting together a T. I would like the opportunity to talk with you about the chance of using some of your players in the commercial. In turn, I would donate some food for fund raising for the walking the path drive. We have the thought of running a football theme commercial as well as having weekly drawings for pep rallies at local high schools. If you could let me know if this is of interest to you I would like to sit down and work out the details and schedule for taping. This is absolutely a problem. A violation of the amateur status would be career ending. Our radio stations are planning to create an Athlete of the Week award presented to a senior student beginning this fall and we would like to partner with a business in presenting a scholarship to an Athlete of the Year selected from all the weekly winners at the end of the school year. Is there any problem with this proposal? Our member's amateur status provisions are outline in Art. To begin, WIAA rules do not prevent a student from receiving a college scholarship. We recommend the funds be paid directly to the student's school at the start of their second semester of college; but what you decide to do for a senior who has graduated - is really up to you. One of the most common perils we encounter in some promotions is the student "appearing" to be endorsing a business, service, product or plan. This often happens unintentionally. If we receive copies of the piece, we are also glad to work with businesses to try to help avoid any negatives from arising from what you are intending to be a good thing. Our local recreation department is starting a men's softball league this summer and the director contacted me with a question. He was wondering if high school athletes are allowed to participate? There will be a cash payout to the winning team, but nothing to individuals. Student athletes could enter the league and play. They may not, however, accept, receive or direct to another cash or merchandise awards. My question is this: I have some track t-shirts that I received at no cost. I thought of giving them away to track athletes, one at a time per week. No Problem. Both in the Bylaws, Art. Where do students stand regarding the Wendy's Heisman award recognizing athletic, academic and citizenship and "amateur status? Students are judged based on their academic achievements, community service involvement, and athletic accomplishments. Up until last year, schools identified a male and female nominee, much like we do with the WIAA scholar athlete. Last year, Wendy's changed the nomination process to allow any student to "nominate themselves" online. Is it acceptable for us to take photos of physicians rendering care to student athletes and then displaying such photos in our clinic office as artwork? I understand we would need to get a photo consent from the minor athlete's parent, but I need to ensure we would not violate WIAA regulations. What you are proposing could hold the potential for a student to lose their high school eligibility for the balance of their school career. There is one strategy by which you could accomplish this promotion yet not adversely affect the students you photographed — if you developed a "calendar file" of photos and always used this spring's graduates in next year's promotions. I am the head boy's soccer coach at a member high school. I have some 8th graders coming up next year who are Hmong and are said to be good players. I don't know yet if they play in Hmong leagues, but my concern is if they plan on playing in any Hmong soccer tournaments, which as far as I can tell, all offer cash prizes to the winners. It is my impression that under Article IVB, there is no way they can participate in such a tournament without permanently forfeiting their amateur status. Is there any circumstance where they could? The rule simply provides that a WIAA student athlete may not "accept, receive or direct to another any cash or merchandise award. In addition to the amateur status, be sure to talk with your students about the nonschool competition rules. As part of a promotional brochure we have put together for a local business, we have included a picture of one of our employees playing "soft toss. He was not paid any money for the use of the picture. Have we violated any WIAA rules? Sight unseen difficult to say with certainty - but potentially, yes. If student is an undergraduate and has hopes of playing any more WIAA sports during this school year - Do not use this photo until you have brought it past the school's AD. An athlete can be identified as an athlete — by text, by apparel, by props. An amateur status violation is career ending for a high school student. Lastly, you should always consult with the local athletic director on matters that could affect school sport eligibility. Our basketball club is interested in sponsoring an all-star game for players in our conference. The game would only involve seniors that have finished playing their high school basketball career. If they want to play the game sometime after the State Tournament, is there a deadline as to when they can play the game during the school year? I believe seniors are OK to play even if they are spring sport athletes, correct? They also gave me a copy of a "Q and A" from sometime past concerning all-star games. The Q and A references Art. IV, a question concerning this article is the following: Can a high school coach only coach a team if none of the players on either team are out for a spring sport? This is very clear from the Bylaws Art. IV which stems from our members fundamental opposition to all-star events; which they had viewed as exploitive of students. There is not a deadline for seniors to participate in the game as you have proposed. I've got a couple questions that are somewhat similar. They've requested pictures of our team playing there so that they can put them on their field website. Is this OK? My impression so far is that they want to have a photo section that shows various pictures of the many teams that use the field. Not sure if they are selling advertising on this site to outside businesses. Would that be a factor in determining acceptability? Is it OK to put pictures of our athletes on such a card? What's on the site, how the photos are used is essential to know and see before being able to say. Selling advertising is only one of the concerns in this type of idea. Can a booster club at a school help pay a fee that an athlete has to pay to be on a club volleyball team? To begin, a player of the week, team of the week, e. The recognition may be afforded without peril. But school administration and coaches must have oversight. In the case I referred to at WADA, an area TV station and an area pizza vendor - under the guise of selecting a "team of the week" picked several area HS's over the course of the fall season and when the team was notified they were team of the week and would receive a pizza dinner for the team which can be allowed — Bylaws Art. XI, Sect 2A. The pizza arrived but so did a video camera which was given to the students. The students were asked to shoot several minutes of video which was then placed on the internet. What appeared on the internet was seen only as an advertisement for the pizza co. With some education of students, oversight by coaches and AD's and the business promotions staff a lot of distress and a year of probation could have been avoided. A local restaurant has offered to feed our football team free of charge this Wednesday. I looked at the Handbook to make sure this was not an amateur status violation and was not sure after reading it over a few times. Could you please clarify? We have some kids that are involved in wrestling and basketball. The last thing I want to do is jeopardize those seasons. So long as it's voluntary, not attached to some other "promotion" and is available to any on the team interested in attending - you can allow this. See Sr. High Handbook, Art. XI, Sect, 2A p. Her mother would like to solicit sponsors to help defray the costs of these trips. Does that endanger the runner, a junior, of her amateur status? On something like this I recommend caution. A student can be reimbursed actual and necessary costs associated with competition. That might be achieved without peril through solicitation. See Rules At A Glance: We have a group that would like to run some halftime contests where gift certificates could be awarded. Are there any restrictions outlined by the WIAA? Does the WIAA have any statements regarding advertising at games? Halftime contests is a broad description. They can take on many forms. Some may be specific skill of sport performance, others like an egg or water balloon toss - having nothing to do with skill of sport performance. Depending on how a student is provided access to the opportunity - whether by random draw, or by simply purchase a ticket and everyone gets a chance to play, as well as what a student will be doing in the contest will determine what a student athlete might be allowed to receive for winning. Of course for adults and non- students, WIAA rules and amateur status provisions have no bearing. In addition, what you choose to do during your own school's regular season will otherwise be largely up to you. Here is some discussion about random draw based contests for some additional detail. You are always most wise to take a "wide berth" around amateur status concerns. With respect to the "lucky ticket holder" and random draws - the rules say an athlete may not receive benefit as a result of "being an athlete" I have a question regarding the distribution of t-shirts and sweatshirts at a basketball league in which non-basketball players play in the winter. The league consists of teams from three communities. None of these players play basketball at the high school, but most participate in other WIAA sponsored sports. They simply join this winter league and play at church gyms within the communities. Is it acceptable for the winning team and second place team in the tournament at the end of the season to receive a sweatshirt first place and a t-shirt second place? I have read the "Amateur Status" requirements and stipulations, but am still uncertain. T-shirts have been identified by the members as acceptable for a student to receive. Sweatshirts have not been approved. See Bylaws, Art. XI, Sect. On the other hand, however, even though student plays school football, basketball and baseball — golfing with dad or buddy in summer event — hits closest to the pin and wins a sleeve of balls, or sandwich at the club house, or a new drive, e. We will be hosting a varsity volleyball tournament and may need to use JV players as line judges. My question is, is it allowable to pay them as we would an adult line judge? A student may be employed and you may compensate them. The only potential for assertion of inappropriateness comes when student is picked because they are the 'best' jv player s. Opportunity for the job should be available to any interested, and selected based on knowledge and ability to perform the work, not based on athletic abilities. We have a girl who is an incoming freshmen that participated in the Hershey track meet this summer and qualified for their national meet. She attended the meet, but her trip was paid for by Hershey. Is this a violation of amateur status? No, not a violation — provided the student did not accept or receive any other unacceptable awards. ROE, Art. IV Amateur Status provides in section B-1a. As students begin registering for school and sports, three questions have come up that we would like some feed back on. They do meet the criteria for free and reduced lunches. The questions are: We view this as costs associated with competition. The boosters should gift the school the necessary dollars that would meet this need. Some schools have this policy. Will this affect that student's amateur status? A local business wants to donate the t-shirts I intended to purchase for the year old summer baseball coach winning the Teen League State Tournament. Is there a violation there? The t-shirts would not mention the name of the business. Also, can a parent buy those same players a key chain celebrating their win of the same tournament? At present, a key chain is not. My daughter is going to be a senior this fall and she and two other HS girls have been asked to play on a co-ed slow pitch softball team that is going to be in a tournament in two weeks. They are the only players on the team that are still in high school. I have been told that they may play on this team as long as they DO NOT accept any prize money that may be given out at the end of the tournament even if the other members of the team accept the money. Is this correct? Essentially, yes. A student may not accept, receive or direct to another - cash or merchandise award. Would recommend you also discuss this with your school's AD. I am from a large city, and I am a senior in high school. I was emancipated from my parents and now I live on my own. However, life in the city is hard, and I decided that I am going to move to a small-town school. Before I actually do this, I just wanted to know if I would be able to play basketball in the new school if I make the team? Answer to your question is "no. We have a question regarding a job that my son was offered. He was given a position through the Park and Rec Dept. He plays on a varsity high school tennis team in the spring. Is there any conflict? Students can be employed in this manner — by rec depts. YMCA, country clubs, aquatic centers, etc. They just can not be self-employed in giving sport skills instruction. Our football team would like to take a picture during the first week of practice in the fall and make a poster of the picture. I know there is not a problem with this, but can they put advertisements on the posters to help pay for the cost of the posters? If they were to make a profit from the sale of posters, would this be a violation of the WIAA policies? It's a little difficult to say with certainty on this one — sight unseen. Fundamentally when you look at a poster — what's it conveying? So long as it's crystal clear that the local businesses are supporting team, school program — it's generally not been seen as a problem. If the posters are sold and proceeds placed in a booster or school account as a fund raising initiative — that has not presented amateur status concerns for the athletes. We have a few examples of posters on file that created problems for the athletes appearing in them. If you wish us to preview your poster in advance of it going to print — will do so gladly — if provided enough time. One of our baseball parents called me today with a question regarding them being contacted by a sports management firm. The letter to them indicated that their son may be considered for the baseball draft next week. There is absolutely no problem with a student and his parents speaking to a sports agent or firm - or a lawyer of their own choosing. Certainly, advise the student to not sign any contract with an agent or professional sport team until they're done with school sports. If a high school player plays baseball for an amateur baseball team in the summer, and the team he plays for receives prize money for playing in a tournament, does this take away the player's amateur status? He is the only player of high school age and does not directly receive the money. There are a number of HS student golfers, e. The student can compete - but just for competition's sake. The student and parents might wish to take some added measures to educate and create awareness that the student is an amateur and may not accept, receive or direct to another, cash or merchandise awards. If a high school athlete were given such an award, would that jeopardize their WIAA eligibility? Obviously, since your event is held Aug. Is there any issue with one of our high school junior ball players getting paid to work a basketball camp that we host for kids in grade school and middle school? Couple of questions for you: Is there anything that would prohibit us from doing that considering that we are only a private school? I was unable to locate one on the website. If not, what is the process? With respect to interstate competition; there is no form. High Handbook, Bylaw Art. II, Sect. Will simplify and summarize: Does this event require NFHS sanctions? If so, has the event received sanctioning? Are participating schools high schools? Are all schools members of their state association? In this case, with only four schools involved, disregard the first two points — the event would NOT require sanctioning. Also, include the dates the event will be held. If a softball team plays out-of-state non-bordering state and plays two games in two days is this in violation of 6f of the softball spring season regulations? Would we consider this an event rather than two competitions? No, this would not violate season regulations if it was your school's only out-of-state event. I am getting the odd request for donations for raffles, silent auctions, etc. Is this a violation? I would like clarification. Kids signing a t-shirt. It's names on a t-shirt. Violates amateur status provisions. Career ending. High Handbook, p. IV, Section B. To paraphrase; a student can be employed - but not self-employed in sport skills instruction. We have two junior high volleyball coaching positions in the district. The only interest is from a junior volleyball player and a graduating senior player. Or for the graduating senior if she is paid as well? A student can be employed. Can a student-athlete receive cash for participation in a bowling tournament? I have read through the amateur status section and am still unclear as it says they may not accept any cash or merchandise for achievement in athletics. In a word, "yes". Thus — since the Association does not presently sponsor interscholastic bowling amateur status restrictions do not apply. Same as we do not sponsor lumberjack events, bass fishing, snowmobiling, motocross, bmx or rodeo, e. On the other hand however - Even though student plays school football, basketball and baseball — and then while golfing with dad or buddy in summer event hits closest to the pin and wins a sleeve of balls, or sandwich at the club house, or a new driver, e. Our marketing department has just released some new commercials for our health care facility. They have a picture of a football player with a WIAA high school jersey with a number in the commercial. This individual is actually a university student non-athlete, non-paid actor. Answer is no. Whether paid or unpaid - A college student has no high school eligibility. He is not a full-time student at a member school and subsequently, is not subject to WIAA rules of eligibility. You were wise to use an actor — we are happy for that — but I am confused and question only the timing of seeking clarification as evidently the commercials have already been aired? A parent attended our WIAA eligibility presentation a few weeks back. His son is interested in participating in video game tournaments. Tournaments are large and small, individual and team with varying cash and material prizes. I am not sure this is considered a sport or even falls under WIAA rules. He has the potential to be sponsored by various companies as he progresses. He is working on local and national sponsorship right now. Or is it like modeling or working a job. Are there restrictions on his competition? What prizes can he accept and maintain his WIAA eligibility? This same interpretation is provided and applicable when asked about bowling, motocross, BMX, snowmobile racing, lumberjack olympics, rodeo and bass pro, etc. The amateur status rule would be enforced in an event such as an iron man triathlon! We do sponsor swim and running competition. I have a young lady from our school who qualified as a Wendy' s Heisman Candidate from our school. She did not receive state level recognition. Must be returned — if student is intending to participate in interscholastic athletics now or in the future. If not returned, student will be ineligible for the remainder of her HS career. Advise student to bring to you — you return, along with note and request response from Wendy's confirming they've received returned prize. Is it acceptable for several students to accept monetary support from local businesses to pay some of or all of the costs associated with a club sport club soccer during the off-season? Or does this threaten their amateur status? They are wondering if local businesses or individuals can assist in paying some of or all of this fee. Does this threaten their amateur status? Simple answer is no, not automatically a violation. This has unsavory potentials; e. Do you really wish to promote local business being hit yet again for personal interests of this kind? Help get kids a job. But the essence remains, 'no, not a violation out of hand. On page 34 of the Senior High Handbook Article IV, Section I of the rules of eligibility it lists those items that are permitted and those which are prohibited. One of the items that is prohibited is "balls". So that I can clarify this to my committee members, is there a distinction between "balls" and "game balls" or is this a typo? Made to team for "tonight's victory," sometimes signed by all team mates and coaches. Game balls awarded in this manner, are seen the same as trophy only more special. But nonetheless - a 'symbolic' award when given in this manner. Hitting closest to the pin or longest drive, I won a summer long supply of golf balls. Again, nothing symbolic in this. For making the winning basket, the local dealer gave me a brand new basketball of my own, just to shoot around with. Someone wants to buy basketball shoes for our three boys teams. Is this legal? Red flags just went up when they told me. Shoes — just given to athletes - would be an amateur status violation. If the benefactor wished to 'gift' the school district and in turn you wished to issue shoes to your teams, you could do that. They then become school property issued just like shoulder pads and should be collected and reissued or collected and discarded following the season in accordance with school board policy. Also see Art. IV, Rules of Eligibility p. I would also recommend there be administrative discussion on the topic from a gender equity perspective — is there anyone who will provide the same for the girls? My 10th grade advisor is running a John Madden Play Station football tournament. Can he give cash away to athletes as a prize? We would not regard it as a "best practice" by any stretch, however. I have a question concerning shoe discounts for students and teams. Am I correct to assume that the following is allowable and not an amateur status violation: A vendor wishes to provide a team discount to players if so many pairs of shoes are purchased by a team. In this case the school buys the shoes, pays the vendor and collects the money from the players that make the team. Otherwise any discount from the vendor would have to be available to any student in the school population. I do not like this model — I prefer the model where every kid who goes out - gets the discount just for going out. Or better yet, every kid and teacher in school can show up in the cafeteria Thurs. In years past, schools used to provide basketball shoes to teams. As I understand the question — this is not that model. From that perspective then at least — the discount in the model IS performance based Would not advise could not support. We would like to recognize students that participate in three sports by giving them a t-shirt. The only requirement would be that they were out for three sports the previous year. Yes - no problem. Can students who receive free or reduced lunch have participation fees waived without risking eligibility? Yes — Amateur status provisions allow students to be "reimbursed" for costs directly associated with competition. We had a senior high school girl get a hole in one at our Booster Hockey Golf Outing. Can she accept the prize, a two-year lease of a car, or would that impact her high school eligibility this year? Answer's "no. Would end her high school career. I am a member of the largest running organization in Wisconsin with about members. Our organization already has a working relationship with many of the shoe stores in southeastern Wisconsin so I don't believe it would take much convincing to get their participation. The stores could collect the forms and "cash" them in through our organization. Am certainly open to other suggestions but I believe the heart of this program would need to be the coaches themselves because they would need to identify those in need and provide them with the necessary forms. There may be a way to achieve your interests and ends without peril to a student athlete. It is not the course you've initially identified. But an alternate path might deliver the results you hope to achieve, nonetheless. Always remember — these are the school's programs, not any one coaches. I received an email from a minor league baseball club. They are hosting a "Hometown Champions" night and are wondering if our athletes would participate. Athletes would be encouraged to wear their uniforms and school apparel to the game that night and would be announced on the field during pregame over the PA system. All individuals affiliated with our championship winning teams would receive a discounted two for one ticket deal. It appears to me that this would violate WIAA rules of eligibility, since the athletes would be receiving a discount based upon athletic achievement. It is the two for one promotion that prompts me to say 'NO can do" on this one as it is presently outlined. As per Bylaws p. XI, Section 2B: When the business uses the students with two for one promotions to try to get business in the door, students are not able to take part in that. Can the hospital donate the bottles to the school, and then the school distributes as they deem appropriate give to athletes only? Can the hospital donate the bottles to the booster club, who then donates to athletes? Or - 'every student who goes out for a sport' should receive a water bottle. Can we have player awards that are sponsored? For instance can we have a "Culvers Player of the Week? No gift or anything like that. Player of the game, the week, As you describe - there would be no peril for student. So long as when we look and see the business, product, service is percent 'endorsing' student, team, school I am an athletic trainer — at my facility we have a training program and would like to roll the program out at a reduced price to employees and their immediate family members. We are offering the program to all employees, so all students would be eligible for the same discount, whether an athlete or not. If I could get something in writing either supporting or denying this proposal, it would greatly help. At least not if is as straight forward as described; i. I have a potential donor that is interested in setting up a need based scholarship for students returning to our private high school, but they would like to base one of the criteria for awarding the scholarship on athletic participation during the previous year. My concern is that while we may be able to award a scholarship to a student coming into our school based on music or art or science interest, if we start to allow scholarships to be awarded based on interest in athletics, will that fall under the recruitment ruling? Your assessment and concerns are right on the mark. Financial aid that has anything to do with athletic interests, potential, ability or performance - would render the student ineligible for their entire HS career and place your school in a status of severe non-compliance. We have had experience in this area where zealous booster members have caused great distress for members on occasion. I would like to approach a local photographer to ask them to donate a complimentary photo for each of our honored student-athletes. Would we run into a problem giving each recipient a 5x7 photo? Can you approve this, or would it violate the amateur standing rule and the rule regarding gifts? We have a player that did not dress because of grades last nighty in our 1st tournament game. At mid term our code states they become eligible as soon as they correct the grade. At the end of the quarter or semester we follow the 1 week or 15 day scenario. Can't find this in the book and want to make sure we follow procedure - I believe they are ineligible for the remainder of the tournament. Please confirm. There are three types of rules: Keep in mind that athletes who are ineligible during the WIAA tournament for any reason may not appear in uniform, participate in warm-ups, and may not participate in the awards ceremony at the WIAA tournament p. In this question and situation, the athlete may return when they become academically eligible. Always apply your code as written. Just a quick question on 15 day ineligibility. I am sure I am right on this one, but I know the parent is going to be asking questions and I want to be prepared. A wrestler's 15 day ineligibility ends today because it is the 15th day. He is not eligible for regionals tomorrow because it is not a scheduled school day correct? His eligibility would resume on Monday. He becomes eligible on the 16th scheduled school day: He said frenchopen. Nonetheless, a few key strokes shows who is winning the numbers game. But if English trumps French on the Internet, there are still small victories. It was a bit of a mess. The rub is that Roland Garros, the French fighter pilot for whom the stadium is named, was not much interested in playing or watching tennis. He was a rugby player, one who was killed when his plane was shot down in near the end of World War I. Friends later requested that the tennis stadium be named for him when it was built to stage the Davis Cup final between the United States and France. The French Open did not become open — accessible to professionals — until Until then it was known in English as the French Championships, which is much closer to its formal French name: Les Internationaux de France de Tennis. The French preference for Roland Garros as an alternative name for the tournament happened gradually, according to Christophe Fagniez, a general director of the French Tennis Federation. But it accelerated in the s as the event, under the leadership of the longtime federation president Philippe Chatrier, embarked on ambitious expansion and the promotion of the Roland Garros product line. Caloni said the dual identity of the tournament is not without a price. For now, he said, there is no such thing as a licensed product line labeled French Open, which means that fans in, for example, North America, Australia, Britain and British-influenced India have a dearth of merchandise bearing the tournament name they favor. Caloni said that was costing the French Open market share in the United States compared with the other three Grand Slam tournaments: But Caloni said the French federation was examining the possibility of starting a French Open line that would complement rather than compete with the Roland Garros line and probably be targeted at high-end consumers with the focus on luxury. Meanwhile, for foreign visitors a choice remains to be made back at Roland Garros Stadium that name, at least, all cultures can agree on. Tennis A Puzzler in Paris: French Open or Roland Garros? Just what name is a well-meaning tennis fan supposed to choose? But the official line is softer now..

I own a local running store, and we are going to be doing a team building event for the store at a fun run on February 13, I have two students athletes that work for me, and I don't want it to affect their track eligibility.

My varsity girls basketball team has asked if it is legal for a private party to purchase pink shoes for them to wear in a game for cancer fundraiser. My response is that if the private party wants to purchase them for any girl in our school who would be interested in them it would be ok.

Just for the varsity girls basketball team would not be allowed. Am I correct? Then they said what if the private party donated the money to the basketball booster club and the club purchased the shoes for the team? My response was that I would not allow it because I viewed it as a way of skirting the rule.

Am I correct there as well? You are correct. If the Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning group the booster club is not considered school wanted to purchase the shoes and gift them to the school, the school could issue them as part of the uniform.

I believe every school that has students fill out the forms receives one boys winner and one girls winner. Article IV, Section 1, B. Just wondering if I am taking this too literally. A student could participate in the contest — but is not able to accept or direct to school or any other person or place, the various cash awards which are mentioned. My guess is no as this would essentially be the same as the student athlete accepting the cash award.

The answer to your question is that a student athlete may NOT direct to another, reimbursement or award in any form a salary, b cash, merchandise of any kind or amount or d share of game or season proceeds, for achievement in athletics. Some additional detail for random draw based contests: Thus, you must always see the person whose name is drawn is the person that "performs" the skill.

This year, our team wore a small helmet sticker on the back of our helmets honoring a classmate of our seniors who had passed away in elementary school. In honor of that, the mother of the former classmate we had honored approached me about the possibility of her purchasing from our school the jerseys of our seniors, who were the classmates of her late son. She wanted to give them as a gift their home game jerseys that they had worn this year. I click here wondering if this was acceptable.

I just want to make sure that we handle this correctly so we're not violating any rules. This can get done — in either of a couple ways. Continue reading "work" within our member's rules.

Since our Bylaws and Amateur status rules provide that "costs associated with competition" can be reimbursed, the boosters could either pay the hotel bill directly or they could "gift the school" the necessary amount and the school could cut the check.

There are three ways most common in considering a here having been identified — by text or spoken word, by apparel and by props. Apparel does not necessarily need to be just the school's uniform to convey the student is an athlete.

Best advice, best practice is to use young adults — recent graduates — who have no high school eligibility remaining. Another best practice recommendation is here simply use actors — students who are not athletes at all — then you have far greater liberties.

XI, Sect 2A. The pizza arrived but so did a video camera which was given to the students. The students were asked to shoot several minutes of video which was then placed on the internet. What appeared on the internet was seen only as an advertisement for the pizza co. With some education of students, oversight by coaches and AD's and the business promotions staff a lot of distress and a year of probation could have been avoided.

A local restaurant has offered to feed our football team free of charge this Wednesday. I looked at Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning Handbook to make sure this was not an amateur status violation and was not sure after reading it over a few times.

Could you please clarify? We have some kids that are involved in wrestling and basketball. The last thing I want to do is jeopardize those seasons. So long as it's voluntary, not attached to some other "promotion" and is available to any on the team interested in attending - you can allow this. Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning Sr. High Handbook, Art. XI, Sect, 2A p. Her mother would like to solicit sponsors to help defray the costs of these trips.

Does that endanger the runner, a junior, of her amateur status?

On something like this I recommend caution. A student can be reimbursed actual and necessary costs associated with competition. That might be achieved without peril through solicitation. See Rules At A Continue reading We have a group that would like to run some halftime contests where gift certificates could be awarded. Are there any restrictions outlined by the WIAA? Does the WIAA have any statements regarding advertising at games?

Halftime contests is a broad description. They can take on many forms. Some may be specific skill of sport performance, others like an egg or water balloon toss Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning having nothing to do with skill of sport performance.

Bobaraba xxx Watch Extreme hardcore orgy first time if youre Video Xvporn Com. The student can compete - but just for competition's sake. The student and parents might wish to take some added measures to educate and create awareness that the student is an amateur and may not accept, receive or direct to another, cash or merchandise awards. If a high school athlete were given such an award, would that jeopardize their WIAA eligibility? Obviously, since your event is held Aug. Is there any issue with one of our high school junior ball players getting paid to work a basketball camp that we host for kids in grade school and middle school? Couple of questions for you: Is there anything that would prohibit us from doing that considering that we are only a private school? I was unable to locate one on the website. If not, what is the process? With respect to interstate competition; there is no form. High Handbook, Bylaw Art. II, Sect. Will simplify and summarize: Does this event require NFHS sanctions? If so, has the event received sanctioning? Are participating schools high schools? Are all schools members of their state association? In this case, with only four schools involved, disregard the first two points — the event would NOT require sanctioning. Also, include the dates the event will be held. If a softball team plays out-of-state non-bordering state and plays two games in two days is this in violation of 6f of the softball spring season regulations? Would we consider this an event rather than two competitions? No, this would not violate season regulations if it was your school's only out-of-state event. I am getting the odd request for donations for raffles, silent auctions, etc. Is this a violation? I would like clarification. Kids signing a t-shirt. It's names on a t-shirt. Violates amateur status provisions. Career ending. High Handbook, p. IV, Section B. To paraphrase; a student can be employed - but not self-employed in sport skills instruction. We have two junior high volleyball coaching positions in the district. The only interest is from a junior volleyball player and a graduating senior player. Or for the graduating senior if she is paid as well? A student can be employed. Can a student-athlete receive cash for participation in a bowling tournament? I have read through the amateur status section and am still unclear as it says they may not accept any cash or merchandise for achievement in athletics. In a word, "yes". Thus — since the Association does not presently sponsor interscholastic bowling amateur status restrictions do not apply. Same as we do not sponsor lumberjack events, bass fishing, snowmobiling, motocross, bmx or rodeo, e. On the other hand however - Even though student plays school football, basketball and baseball — and then while golfing with dad or buddy in summer event hits closest to the pin and wins a sleeve of balls, or sandwich at the club house, or a new driver, e. Our marketing department has just released some new commercials for our health care facility. They have a picture of a football player with a WIAA high school jersey with a number in the commercial. This individual is actually a university student non-athlete, non-paid actor. Answer is no. Whether paid or unpaid - A college student has no high school eligibility. He is not a full-time student at a member school and subsequently, is not subject to WIAA rules of eligibility. You were wise to use an actor — we are happy for that — but I am confused and question only the timing of seeking clarification as evidently the commercials have already been aired? A parent attended our WIAA eligibility presentation a few weeks back. His son is interested in participating in video game tournaments. Tournaments are large and small, individual and team with varying cash and material prizes. I am not sure this is considered a sport or even falls under WIAA rules. He has the potential to be sponsored by various companies as he progresses. He is working on local and national sponsorship right now. Or is it like modeling or working a job. Are there restrictions on his competition? What prizes can he accept and maintain his WIAA eligibility? This same interpretation is provided and applicable when asked about bowling, motocross, BMX, snowmobile racing, lumberjack olympics, rodeo and bass pro, etc. The amateur status rule would be enforced in an event such as an iron man triathlon! We do sponsor swim and running competition. I have a young lady from our school who qualified as a Wendy' s Heisman Candidate from our school. She did not receive state level recognition. Must be returned — if student is intending to participate in interscholastic athletics now or in the future. If not returned, student will be ineligible for the remainder of her HS career. Advise student to bring to you — you return, along with note and request response from Wendy's confirming they've received returned prize. Is it acceptable for several students to accept monetary support from local businesses to pay some of or all of the costs associated with a club sport club soccer during the off-season? Or does this threaten their amateur status? They are wondering if local businesses or individuals can assist in paying some of or all of this fee. Does this threaten their amateur status? Simple answer is no, not automatically a violation. This has unsavory potentials; e. Do you really wish to promote local business being hit yet again for personal interests of this kind? Help get kids a job. But the essence remains, 'no, not a violation out of hand. On page 34 of the Senior High Handbook Article IV, Section I of the rules of eligibility it lists those items that are permitted and those which are prohibited. One of the items that is prohibited is "balls". So that I can clarify this to my committee members, is there a distinction between "balls" and "game balls" or is this a typo? Made to team for "tonight's victory," sometimes signed by all team mates and coaches. Game balls awarded in this manner, are seen the same as trophy only more special. But nonetheless - a 'symbolic' award when given in this manner. Hitting closest to the pin or longest drive, I won a summer long supply of golf balls. Again, nothing symbolic in this. For making the winning basket, the local dealer gave me a brand new basketball of my own, just to shoot around with. Someone wants to buy basketball shoes for our three boys teams. Is this legal? Red flags just went up when they told me. Shoes — just given to athletes - would be an amateur status violation. If the benefactor wished to 'gift' the school district and in turn you wished to issue shoes to your teams, you could do that. They then become school property issued just like shoulder pads and should be collected and reissued or collected and discarded following the season in accordance with school board policy. Also see Art. IV, Rules of Eligibility p. I would also recommend there be administrative discussion on the topic from a gender equity perspective — is there anyone who will provide the same for the girls? My 10th grade advisor is running a John Madden Play Station football tournament. Can he give cash away to athletes as a prize? We would not regard it as a "best practice" by any stretch, however. I have a question concerning shoe discounts for students and teams. Am I correct to assume that the following is allowable and not an amateur status violation: A vendor wishes to provide a team discount to players if so many pairs of shoes are purchased by a team. In this case the school buys the shoes, pays the vendor and collects the money from the players that make the team. Otherwise any discount from the vendor would have to be available to any student in the school population. I do not like this model — I prefer the model where every kid who goes out - gets the discount just for going out. Or better yet, every kid and teacher in school can show up in the cafeteria Thurs. In years past, schools used to provide basketball shoes to teams. As I understand the question — this is not that model. From that perspective then at least — the discount in the model IS performance based Would not advise could not support. We would like to recognize students that participate in three sports by giving them a t-shirt. The only requirement would be that they were out for three sports the previous year. Yes - no problem. Can students who receive free or reduced lunch have participation fees waived without risking eligibility? Yes — Amateur status provisions allow students to be "reimbursed" for costs directly associated with competition. We had a senior high school girl get a hole in one at our Booster Hockey Golf Outing. Can she accept the prize, a two-year lease of a car, or would that impact her high school eligibility this year? Answer's "no. Would end her high school career. I am a member of the largest running organization in Wisconsin with about members. Our organization already has a working relationship with many of the shoe stores in southeastern Wisconsin so I don't believe it would take much convincing to get their participation. The stores could collect the forms and "cash" them in through our organization. Am certainly open to other suggestions but I believe the heart of this program would need to be the coaches themselves because they would need to identify those in need and provide them with the necessary forms. There may be a way to achieve your interests and ends without peril to a student athlete. It is not the course you've initially identified. But an alternate path might deliver the results you hope to achieve, nonetheless. Always remember — these are the school's programs, not any one coaches. I received an email from a minor league baseball club. They are hosting a "Hometown Champions" night and are wondering if our athletes would participate. Athletes would be encouraged to wear their uniforms and school apparel to the game that night and would be announced on the field during pregame over the PA system. All individuals affiliated with our championship winning teams would receive a discounted two for one ticket deal. It appears to me that this would violate WIAA rules of eligibility, since the athletes would be receiving a discount based upon athletic achievement. It is the two for one promotion that prompts me to say 'NO can do" on this one as it is presently outlined. As per Bylaws p. XI, Section 2B: When the business uses the students with two for one promotions to try to get business in the door, students are not able to take part in that. Can the hospital donate the bottles to the school, and then the school distributes as they deem appropriate give to athletes only? Can the hospital donate the bottles to the booster club, who then donates to athletes? Or - 'every student who goes out for a sport' should receive a water bottle. Can we have player awards that are sponsored? For instance can we have a "Culvers Player of the Week? No gift or anything like that. Player of the game, the week, As you describe - there would be no peril for student. So long as when we look and see the business, product, service is percent 'endorsing' student, team, school I am an athletic trainer — at my facility we have a training program and would like to roll the program out at a reduced price to employees and their immediate family members. We are offering the program to all employees, so all students would be eligible for the same discount, whether an athlete or not. If I could get something in writing either supporting or denying this proposal, it would greatly help. At least not if is as straight forward as described; i. I have a potential donor that is interested in setting up a need based scholarship for students returning to our private high school, but they would like to base one of the criteria for awarding the scholarship on athletic participation during the previous year. My concern is that while we may be able to award a scholarship to a student coming into our school based on music or art or science interest, if we start to allow scholarships to be awarded based on interest in athletics, will that fall under the recruitment ruling? Your assessment and concerns are right on the mark. Financial aid that has anything to do with athletic interests, potential, ability or performance - would render the student ineligible for their entire HS career and place your school in a status of severe non-compliance. We have had experience in this area where zealous booster members have caused great distress for members on occasion. I would like to approach a local photographer to ask them to donate a complimentary photo for each of our honored student-athletes. Would we run into a problem giving each recipient a 5x7 photo? Can you approve this, or would it violate the amateur standing rule and the rule regarding gifts? We have a player that did not dress because of grades last nighty in our 1st tournament game. At mid term our code states they become eligible as soon as they correct the grade. At the end of the quarter or semester we follow the 1 week or 15 day scenario. Can't find this in the book and want to make sure we follow procedure - I believe they are ineligible for the remainder of the tournament. Please confirm. There are three types of rules: Keep in mind that athletes who are ineligible during the WIAA tournament for any reason may not appear in uniform, participate in warm-ups, and may not participate in the awards ceremony at the WIAA tournament p. In this question and situation, the athlete may return when they become academically eligible. Always apply your code as written. Just a quick question on 15 day ineligibility. I am sure I am right on this one, but I know the parent is going to be asking questions and I want to be prepared. A wrestler's 15 day ineligibility ends today because it is the 15th day. He is not eligible for regionals tomorrow because it is not a scheduled school day correct? His eligibility would resume on Monday. He becomes eligible on the 16th scheduled school day: Our district recently passed a policy that students be required to maintain a 2. The question that has been brought up is, what happens to the special ed students who try as they might, can't make this new GPA requirement. Is there anything that can be written in the IEP to allow them to participate in these activities and "outrank" the school policy? Some have said that if it's written in the IEP than it should be followed. But, this really doesn't relate to FAPE does it? I don't know if others have experience with this and if there has been any court cases that have set a precedence for something like this. I completely agree with the basic premise I read in your comments Your district may want to address the 2. It may be done either, individually, based on identified and specific needs in the IEP. It may be done as broad policy. Either way, it ought to be "spelled out" keep in mind that if you put a different standard then 2. We would NOT set aside the "no F" component. We would not accept failure for a student. As I recall, our expectations for waiving the gpa, included: We designed the model for weekly or bi-weekly feedback from teachers. The student was responsible to initiate all contacts between teachers, AD and coaches. We have one varsity soccer team, a red JV soccer team and a white JV soccer team, and a red freshman team and a white freshman team. I understand that academic ineligibility stemming from a fourth quarter failing grade shall result in the lesser of 21 calendar days beginning with the date of earliest competition September 14 or one third of the maximum games allowed in a sport. Is one third of the games allowed based solely on the varsity season schedule, or each schedule for each level? As an example, one third of the JV season is a different "date" for eligibility than one third of a varsity season. In turn, one third of the season in the JV red schedule is different than one third for the white schedule. Is it possible to have, five different dates of eligibility based on what one-third of a season is? Or is the one-third of the season based on the varsity schedule and, therefore, soccer has one "date" for eligibility. Understood is the lesser of 21 days or one-third. The 21 calendar days would be the same "count" for all, i. In so far as JV and varsity, the max number of games that can be scheduled is the same for all sports, e. You are correct to adjust figure for frosh. The max they are allowed is Thus one third is 5. We have a student who competed in wrestling during grades The family moved to Florida, while the wrestler moved to live and work with grandparents in Puerto Rico for one year. The wrestler did not receive any education for the year. The wrestler returned to our school, established residency with parents, and plans to complete his senior year. Is the wrestler eligible to compete as a "fifth year senior" having only completed six semesters of education? The wrestler will turn 18 during the upcoming school year. Not without a consecutive semester waiver. A student has the potential for up to eight consecutive semesters of eligibility beginning with grade nine. His consecutive semester "clock" or count begins when he began 9th grade. That he or the family chose to take a year off does not stop that count. In the most recent grade-reporting period. Grades go on transcripts at the end of each nine week term. But every three weeks we make available "progress reports. Now we have a new computer network grading program that does not allow these phrases to be used. For progress reports, we will have to give out actual letter grades now. Our code of conduct refers to grades at the end of each nine week term - the progress reports had no impact on eligibility. May we continue to consider the most recent grade reporting period to be the ones that occur at every nine weeks? Your dilemma is not unique. For added awareness and clarification, you might find a way to document that: Academic eligibility for all extra curricular activities shall be based on the actual nine week grade which is the grade that will appear on the student's permanent record of this term. This is just an idea. Bottom line, the "progress report" is not the "final" grade Does competition mean when practice starts, or when games start. I used the start of the season, and was questioned on it. We have the same wording in our code as the WIAA for fall sports. Earliest date of competition is the date of first game. Not the date practice may begin. See Handbook pgs. There is also a matrix for fall sport eligibility on the web and on p. Penalties for use of ineligible players is outline on p. I would like your input on the following situation. A student this summer transferred from our school to School X and wants to play football. In looking at his academic record for last semester, he received two failing grades from us. However, the student took two sessions of science in summer school at X High School and received a passing grade for both classes. The student failed both physical science and world cultures at our school. In looking at the bylaws it states a student may become eligible through summer school provided the courses made up are equivalent. The School X coach is asking me to determine whether or not the student would be eligible. How does one determine if the classes are equivalent in this case? My feeling is that the student would be eligible at X. Please note I am not sure how the science classes compare. If he failed three classes he'd need to make up at least two, etc. That's the "equivalent" number of F's that made him not eligible. If you were a "No F" policy, then the equivalent is two classes made up Under no circumstance could a student erase multiple failures with less then the same number of classes completed in summer. Also, it has not been interpreted to mean that if the student failed geometry, they must re-take geometry in the summer or even another math class for that matter. We are addressing number of failures and classes We have several students that have not done well in regular education classes that will be in an on-site GED program during the school year. In your opinion, are these students eligible to compete in extra-curricular activities? Provided these students are enrolled as full-time students, same as every other student, make the necessary grades not more then one F, etc. You can find the added definition for full-time student on p. I have a question regarding academic eligibility of a transfer student. The student transferring to our school passed all of his classes for the second semester, but had failing grades for two of the classes in the fourth quarter. Which grades take precedence for academic eligibility, the second semester grades or the fourth quarter grades? The WIAA does not determine whether a school must count the quarter or semester grade. That's the school's "call". Our only stipulation is that whatever you use to determine academic eligibility it is the "standard" and is used all of the time and by all sport participants. Not using the quarter grades for "this student or team" and the semester grade for the other student or team. If there is a trend, it might be to look at the quarter grades for sport eligibility. If eligibility is a "privilege" then some feel that maintaining that privilege is an earn as you go proposition, and that the quarter grade is the most accurate reflection of what the "student's doing now" in order to preserve the privilege of access to sport competition. In this situation the discussion revolves around whether to use semester grades or quarter grades, when a student is transferring, the "receiving school's" academic policy is applied regarding semester or quarter grade usage. But always apply the sending code for the determination of ineligibility. If the sending school is one failing grade and one quarter of ineligibility while your code is two failing grades and 15 scheduled school days of ineligibility, use the sending school's one failing grade and one quarter of ineligibility. In cases where there is a code of conduct issue lingering, the sending school's code applies. That's the code the student knew and "signed on to. Last year, we had foreign exchange students who were sophomores. They were members of a program and WIAA eligible. This year as juniors they returned and were not part of a program and, therefore, not WIAA eligible. If they return next year as seniors would they be eligible to participate? I am reading the rule stating that after one year of ineligibility students become eligible if attendance is continuous. Handbook, p. What is the rule on a club paying for part of a high school student's summer wrestling camp. See the Rules at a Glance. The WIAA recognizes a distinction between training and competing. Students must pay their own expenses, including transportation, to any nonschool out-of-season camps, clinics, or specialized training. Schools may pay expenses and provide transportation to similar in-season activities in that sport and during unrestricted contact days in the summer. This may include transportation, food, lodging and entry fees. A school may not become involved financially, through transportation or any other way in a student's nonschool participation outside the sport season and the five Board of Control approved unrestricted contact days in the summer. BL — Art. II, RE — Art. IV and Art. VI Note: Funds kept in school activity accounts are considered school funds. The only time camps may be paid for athletes is during the five unrestricted contact days and it must be available to any and all interested students. Coaches may not coach their athletes outside of the season. If your coaches work a non-school camp during the school year, their athletes could not work the same camp. Note, schools may not conduct camps during the school year out of season. See the following on the Rules at a Glance: So long as participation is voluntary and available to all interested students: There shall be no restrictions upon schools, school teams and school coaches grades relative to assembling in the summertime, for up to 5 days, which do not need to be consecutive. Unrestricted contact days must conclude no later than July A school may conduct a clinic for students in grades 8 and below, where high school varsity and junior varsity coaches may use some or all of their high school athletes as clinicians. This may be done for a maximum of six days during the summer when school is not in session and must conclude no later than July Clinics not utilizing athletes as clinicians may be conducted throughout the summer up to the start of school. School facilities may be used for nonschool programs, according to board of education policy, which can result in clinics being conducted, outside the season, by nonschool groups. The nonschool group must request the facilities from the board of education or governing board, through normal procedures and are encouraged to provide their own insurance protection. II and RE — Art. VI, Sect. I am aware that students from another district cannot participate in our open gyms during the summer, but what about camps. Can a girl from the neighboring district participate in a volleyball camp sponsored by our coach and intended for our district girls? Can our coach restrict it to only our girls, or can she promote it with other schools if she wants? How would any of these scenarios affect the contact days allowed for our coach? Here are some summer camp thoughts. It must be voluntary and not mandatory. Coaching restrictions apply. Camps during the five unrestricted days may take place after the last day of school and before July Schools may provide transportation, instruction, etc. Outside of the five unrestricted days, coaches may not coach athletes they will coach the next season. Schools may not conduct camps during the school year. If a reduced price is offered it must be provided to all participants. The only way for booster club funds to be used is to gift them to the school and the school to use booster gifts during the five unrestricted days. High school students may work a lower level camp as a clinician, but the camps may not be longer than six days and must be completed before July However, Captains' practices are not allowed during the school year. I am wondering if a booster club can cover the cost of a hotel room when players go to a team camp in the summer time? I am thinking of having my team attend a team camp in Green Bay, and while I know I cannot pay for their entry fee to the team camp, I am wondering if I can pay for the lodging at a hotel. In order to provide an accurate answer, I would need to know if the camp is part of your five unrestricted contact days or is not a part of the five unrestricted contact days. Then that and other school funds could be used to provide camp opportunity for - ALL - interested students. If the camp were not part of your unrestricted contact days, the answer would be "No. Students must pay their own expenses, including transportation to any non-school out-of-season camps. Logistics could be accommodated by having students cover their own cost for the bus transportation. If they wished to ride bus. All interested students could travel by bus if they desired, but would need to cover their own bus ticket costs to camp in this scenario. I am writing as the president on behalf of our wrestling club which is not associated with our school. We are a non-profit association organized to promote the sport of wrestling for ages pre-K - high school. Are we able to reimburse the athlete for their expenses to attend a summer camp held off-site from school? Actually to be held at another school district I've read under summer reminders at the Web site Also, what if the club is hosting a fundraiser event such as a car wash or brat fry - are the athletes able to split those profits and pay for their camp fees with that money? Our member schools have allowed reimbursement for some costs associated with competition and not camps or clinics. Competition would include meets or tournaments. Training would include practice, camps, or clinics. Schools may pay expenses and provide transportation to similar in-season activities in that sport and during unrestricted contact days in the sum- mer. The WIAA members have stated in the Rules of Eligibility page 38 Article VI, Section 2, 5, that any fees for entrance to the clinic must be paid for by the students or parents in order to not affect the amateur status of any participants. I read over the Handbook, the eligibility section, and could not find specific language for paying for entry fees to camps over the summer. We have a few parents that would like to do a fundraiser to raise some money to offset the cost of the camp. There are nine girls that are looking to go to a camp this summer and it is quite expensive. A few of the parents thought that if they were to do a fundraiser, they could help offset the cost for some of the families. Would this be a violation of amateur status? During the summer, if the fund-raised money is kept in a nonschool account and the fundraisers wished to cover the costs for all students interested in summer league play, they could cover costs associated with competition. If it is during your unrestricted five days, then the money could be gifted to the school and used during that time. Can our booster club give a student-athlete money to go to a summer camp such as a scholarship? Also, we do a fundraiser every year, can I use some of that money so a kid could go to a camp? Simple answer is no. See III- F of attached. Can the girl's soccer coach pay for a team camp with the girl's activity account. Similarly, if my softball coach wants to send her team to a clinic is this something she can pay for out of her activities account? The girls fundraise through working concession stands and I just wanted to double check to make sure that this is an appropriate way to pay for this team clinic. To begin, ALWAYS remember, once money is placed in a school account — it is — school money; regardless how it got there or who put it in. School monies can be used. If not a part of the unrestricted days, then — no; kids would need to pay their own way. Can hockey players be used to help coach a youth camp by demonstrating drills to the kids and working with lower level kids on skill development. This camp would be held before the start of the high school season and would be for players in elementary and middle school. The simple answer is yes. There are a number of caveats. Schools may not sponsor camps or clinics except in the summer. Students could be present and — volunteer - to assist parents — so long as school coaches were not present. School coaches could assist parents — but not when their HS team players are present. My volleyball coach would like to set up a camp for high school students during the week of August She knows she can not coach in the camp and another person would be in charge of the camp. Is there any restrictions with this request? The end result of this can be achieved within Association rules, fairly easily. There are caveats. Keep in mind that the time period your coach has identified as a desirable period for a camp is both outside the actual school season and outside the unrestricted contact dates. Bylaws do identify that school facilities can be used by non-school groups in accordance with school district policies Art. Additionally, the Rules of Eligibility Art. Some of the previous response can also be found at least partially addressed in the Rules At A Glance, Art. II, C and A, especially. Will high school girls be in any kind of violation if they choose to attend such a camp? The simple answer is 'No. There were two significant caveats contained in my response: First, students must cover their own expenses to camps and clinics at this time of year.. I am a varsity girl's basketball coach and I was just wondering what the regulations are if our booster club wanted to pay for athletic teams to go to a team camp? I know that I as a coach nor the school is allowed to pay but are there any restrictions from an outside source such as a booster club paying for players to go to camp? Or does this infringe on a "sponsor" so to speak in that it would look like someone is sponsoring players to attend camp? The school would typically make an announcement to notify all interested 'girls' who might want to have access to a camp opportunity. Can a high school, public or private, entertain a sports team or group of middle school students from another school at the high school and conduct either a sports related clinic or open house? Does it have to be the whole grade invited, or can a select group of students be targeted? Or in other words, do the rules prohibiting the singling out of high school students for school enrollment apply to middle school students? Example 1: A parochial middle school volleyball team is invited to the local public high school to observe and participate in a session with the high school volleyball team? Example 2: An entire 8th grade from a parochial middle school is invited to an open house during the school day at the private high school? Your school can legitimately provide a variety of opportunities to let middle school students know about you. But at this time of year — a member school can not sponsor a 'clinic". Would it be against WIAA rules, for a club to pay for a camp for it's high school wrestlers? The yes or no to this depends a bit on when the camp is going to be held. If this camp is held prior to the start of the school season, then the answer would be no. The school, then in turn — could "send their whole team to camp" if they chose. Rules of Eligibility text; Art. VI, Section 2C-5note Sr. High Handbook p. Can our basketball coach use fundraising money, raised by the basketball players, to pay an entrance fee into a summer basketball league and an AAU tournament? The money is located in a school activity account. For days outside those designated, 'no. I am a varsity head coach and want to hold a youth football camp at the school this summer. Do I need to do this prior to Aug. Lastly, if I can utilize the high schoolers at the camp, can I do this after Aug. You can use your HS athletes as clinicians BUT - if you wish to use your athletes as clinicians the camp must conclude no later then July There are colleges that offer "team camps" in which you can coach your team and participate against other teams. Is there anything in the WIAA Handbook that prohibits a high school team from practicing with another high school team during those contact days? And so long as involve- ment is voluntary and available to any interested students, you could work with another school. My high school team is going to a team camp this summer. Can the school provide transportation? If the camp is included in your five 'unrestricted contact days,' yes. If not a part of those contact days, no. Our football booster group would like to sponsor a bus to transport players to a football camp. If within your allowed contact days, yes. If not within the allowed contact days the students would need to buy a ticket. I am the head basketball coach at X. This summer, one of our volunteer coaches is thinking about holding a basketball camp for grades in his hometown of Y. He asked if I wanted to help out. The camp would be open to all of the surrounding schools. There are a couple dimensions to your question that should be addressed and clarified. First, "JV and varsity coaches are allowed to have contact with students until they actually enter 9th grade. Rules At A Glance, Art. I Second, if your camp took place between the end of school and July 31, AND you counted the camp as part of your five unrestricted contact days, you could coach your own players. If NOT part of your unrestricted days, neither you or the volunteer could have coaching contact with players you will coach next season. You can find a volume of this on our website: We have about 30 kids going for a four-day camp. This is not part of our schools approved contact days. The boosters felt this would help solve logistics for a lot of parents having to transport kids. As described answer would be "No. Logistics could be accommo- dated by having students cover their own cost for the bus transportation.. Due to the weather it was postponed until March Since the HS softball season has already begun can our players still attend the camp? Yes - and the school could even cover the costs - and your school's coaches could have contact, and school could transport, since it's in-season. ROE Art. Once the softball season begins on March 12 can our coaches and players be used to run a free softball camp for 5th through 8th graders? Coaches would instruct with the players helping with various drills. This could be possible and accomplished within the rules - but would need to find a non-school sponsor. The local youth baseball program is planning a camp for 5th through 12th graders spring training. They are planning to use the high school gyms. As the varsity coach, can I work this camp? Are there any other things at I should be aware of? You're going about it the proper way. As you will see in Article I of the Rules At A Glance "JV and varsity coaches are able to have contact with students until they actually enter 9th grade. However, during the school year, you are not able to have any coaching contact with stu- dents who are already in 9thth grade - except during the actual school season Mar. Two scenarios regarding money for kids who can't afford camps. The local tribal council wanting to give money for camps to tribal member athletes open to any tribal member. Character Ed. Would either of these be allowed? What if money was given to family and parent wrote the check? Not allowed. There is always the peril - when something comes to light later on and is painted in most evil of descriptions - that what seemed to be 'creative' compliance' is actually considered to be circumvention and not compliance at all. This sort of tidbit usually creeps up the 'morning of the tournament contest', unfortunately. Two, more legitimate solutions: If a student can't afford the camp, find them a legitimate job and pay them.. As described, an amateur status violation; career ending. Acceptable alternative: Donate what's needed to the school. School then owns and issues. Our football coach is taking his freshmen son to a Jeff Trickey camp. Can he transport other kids that are going? Not if HS kids. See Rules at a Glance, Art. I have a question regarding summer volleyball camps. I would like to have an outside organization conduct the camp this summer for my girls. We are not the most affluent of towns and money is short for most of my players. Having a camp run here of this nature would get a bit expensive for the majority of my players. I was approached by a member of our booster club with an offer to donate some money towards the camp to offset the cost for the athletes attending. The camp is open to all girls in our school so it would be a gender specific camp. Is this a permissible donation that would not violate any rules. The money that they would donate would go directly to the camp coaches and then the cost for the athletes would be figured out after that depending on the number attending. Please advise on this situation and ask any questions you may have of me as soon as you can. As described, this would not be a problem. Each student still covers their own costs of the camp, what ever they turn out to be. Be certain it is the same cost for all who attend. As the varsity coach can I work this camp? I get a lot of questions about this. However, during the school year, you are not able to have any coaching contact with students who are already in 9thth grade - except during the actual school season Mar. I have a question concerning open gyms. Is it OK for a soccer team to gather players for open gym prior to the regular season and have "captains practices" during the open gym? My understanding is that the coaches are only supervising, but the team captains for the upcoming season are running their teammates through drills and activities? Is it acceptable to have players running practices at open gyms if the coaches are only supervising? Captain's practices are permitted in the summer; not during the school year. Please see II-A and D of attached. Also See: A X baseball club has been formed and our head baseball coach wants to conduct two to three clinics for students in grades during the winter sports season. These clinics would be conducted by members of the X high school baseball coaching staff. No high school athletes will be involved in coaching these students. Is there any problem with our coaches conducting this clinic? The end result of this could be achieved within existing Bylaws — however, it may not be a 'school spon- sored' event. Bylaws Article II p. Not during school year. Our boys soccer coach has asked if a clinic can be conducted by a professional soccer player the week of Aug. Am I correct in telling our coaches they can't be a part of the clinic? Can our coach set up the camp? Registration, facility usage, etc A.: The opportunity - like when any other non-school provider like the YMCA creates programming - ought to be made known and available to any age appropriate students in the area interested in attending. To limit it to your school's prospective soccer players - is simply beginning the soccer season a week early. See Handbook, p. Also see: Regarding your coaches, they may not be involved, at least in so far as having any coaching contact with your school's soccer players. The fundamental rule is that outside of the five unrestricted days - coaches may not have coaching contact with students they will be coaching in the next school season. JV and varsity coaches can have contact with students until they actually enter 9th grade. Then, utilize recent grads and other 'summer' coaches who will not be coaching during the school season Coaches from A work with students from B, C, D. Coaches from B work with students from A, C, D, and etc. School resources, personnel, mail, staff, etc. Could you please answer the following question: High school A's soccer team has arranged for a July camp voluntary basis with a noncoach camp director. High school B from another city is using the same camp director for its camp. It is a linguistic divide. French speakers call the tournament, not just the stadium in which it is played, Roland Garros. Native English speakers, despite repeated attempts to convert them, still overwhelmingly favor French Open. But it is also a cultural divide: Europeans, with the exception of the British, strongly favor Roland Garros. So do South Americans, whose players have been major factors here through the years. French Open officials have long hoped that China — a late arrival to tennis fandom — would follow their lead. But they are increasingly bowing to the obvious. The identity issue was once considered an identity crisis by French Federation officials, who, at different stages of the s and s, aggressively encouraged the print and electronic media covering the tournament to use Roland Garros and only Roland Garros. We have Internet, Facebook. But actions, for the moment, speak louder than diplomacy, and the tournament is continuing to emphasize Roland Garros on multiple fronts. The official tournament Web site frenchopen. What exists now is rolandgarros. He said frenchopen. Nonetheless, a few key strokes shows who is winning the numbers game. But if English trumps French on the Internet, there are still small victories. It was a bit of a mess. The rub is that Roland Garros, the French fighter pilot for whom the stadium is named, was not much interested in playing or watching tennis. He was a rugby player, one who was killed when his plane was shot down in near the end of World War I. Friends later requested that the tennis stadium be named for him when it was built to stage the Davis Cup final between the United States and France. The French Open did not become open — accessible to professionals — until .

Depending on how a student is provided access to the opportunity - whether by random draw, or by simply purchase a ticket and everyone gets a chance to play, as well as what a student will be doing in the contest will determine what a student athlete might be allowed to receive for winning. Of course for adults and non- students, WIAA rules and amateur status provisions have no bearing. In addition, what you choose to do during your own school's regular season will otherwise be largely up to you.

Here is some discussion about random draw based contests for some additional detail. You are always most wise to take a "wide berth" around amateur status concerns. With respect to the "lucky ticket holder" and random draws - the rules say an athlete may not receive benefit as a result of "being an source I have a question regarding the distribution of t-shirts Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning sweatshirts at a basketball league in which non-basketball players play in the winter.

The league consists of teams from three communities. None of these players play basketball at the high school, but most participate in other WIAA sponsored sports. They simply join this winter league and Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning at church gyms within the communities. Is it acceptable for the winning team and second place team in the tournament at the end of the season to receive a sweatshirt first place and a t-shirt second place?

I have read the "Amateur Status" requirements and stipulations, but am still uncertain. T-shirts have been identified by the members as acceptable for a student to receive. Sweatshirts have not been approved. See Bylaws, Art. XI, Sect. On the other hand, however, even though student plays school football, basketball and baseball — golfing with dad or buddy in summer event — hits closest to the pin and wins a sleeve of balls, or sandwich at the club house, or a new drive, e.

We will be hosting a varsity volleyball tournament and may need to use JV players as line judges. My question is, is it allowable to pay them as we would an adult line judge? A student may be employed and you may compensate them. The only potential for assertion of inappropriateness comes when student is picked Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning they are the 'best' jv player s.

Opportunity for the job should be available to any interested, and selected based on knowledge and ability to click the following article the work, not based on athletic abilities. We have a girl who is an incoming freshmen that participated in the Hershey track meet this summer and qualified for their national meet.

She attended the meet, but her trip was paid for by Hershey.

Schools are ultimately responsible for the eligibility of all of their students and the school needs to communicate rules and pay close attention to the circumstances that bring students to the school. Obviously, public schools and private schools encourage students to enroll and this certainly can be done without violating the undue influence rule. The following gives some examples of acceptable and unacceptable practices. This list cannot be considered allinclusive, but should be helpful as an example. It is the responsibility of schools to contact other schools and report any possible violations of WIAA rules. The WIAA is always willing to provide rules clarifications and, where necessary, will impose sanctions on schools and programs. It is far better for schools to provide leadership and control to prevent problems than to have to deal with these issues after the fact. Coaching out of season is NOT allowed during the school year. Unrestricted and unlimited apply only during the summer. All sport coaches have five days of unrestricted school coaching contac t opportunity during the summer, between the end of school and July 31; the days do not need to be consecutive. Unrestricted school opportunities allow you to use school support and facilities as you would during the season. The 5 contact days must be the same for all levels within a sport program. Unrestricted school contact days are open to any and all interested students in your school from the last day of school to July They are not allowed during the school year. Unrestricted school football coaching contact must end on July 27, in order to meet the dead week rule. Football must follow the acclimatization plan if school resources are used. Use of school support and facilities must be done in the same manner as any other non-school group such as 4-H, boy scouts, or local rotary. Unlimited contact is open to any and all interested students in your community and other communities along with being voluntary. During the summer and school year out of season, athletes may assemble in any manner they wish without school or coach involvement other than the five contact days. The booster club is considered non-school. Unlimited Non-School Contact all sports except football. Open to any and all interested students in your community and other communities. School facilities must be contracted for in accordance with your school district policies. Summer Last day of school until first day of school in the fall. There are no restrictions as to the number of athletes from the same school allowed on a given team. School Year First day of school until last day of school. During the school year, you may only use your athletes as clinicians during the sport season. In the summertime, a school may conduct a clinic for students in grade 8 and below, where high school varsity and junior varsity coaches may use some or all of their athletes as clinicians. Individual students may be used as clinicians a maximum of 6 days during the summer when school is not in session. Using students as clinicians in such a manner must conclude no later than July 31 except FB must comply with the dead period. For baseball, does that mean a coach can throw bp as long he doesn't coach or advise or anything like that? Absolutely not. Baseball coaches may throw with players, but not catch the pitcher from a catcher's stance. Baseball coaches may hit in the batting cage, but may not pitch batting practice or drop balls into the pitching machine. Baseball coaches may field ground balls, but may not hit ground balls. If it looks like a baseball drill, the coach may not do it. Recreate is not doing drills. Recreate is playing. I have a question about accepting prize money from cycling races I compete in over the summer. I was wondering if it would be permissible that if I were to win any cash prize, that I could accept only the amount of entry for the race? Our amateur status rules which the member schools have put into effect limit student-athletes from receiving benefits from athletic achievements in WIAA recognized sports. Thus, since the Association does not presently sponsor interscholastic cycling amateur status restrictions do not apply to your cycling achievements. Current WIAA recognized sports are: I am the association manager of our local bowling association, and I have a young gentleman that will be going out for the high school golf team and wants to bowl in a USBC sanctioned league. There will be prize money at the end of the bowling season which will be the second week of April. What is his eligibility or penalty if he participates up to the beginning of the season, or during the season? He is under 18 and his parents have signed a USBC waiver? Thus, since the Association does not presently sponsor interscholastic bowling amateur status restrictions do not apply. I represent a free publication in the Madison area. We would like to highlight two area high school athletes. There will obviously be no compensation, just an interview and photos. Do you foresee any problems or violations? Articles published by news gathering publications have been acceptable by our member's rules. Your concerns may revolve around amateur status. Athletes may not appear in ads promoting a publication, product, or service whether they receive compensation or not. I own a local running store, and we are going to be doing a team building event for the store at a fun run on February 13, I have two students athletes that work for me, and I don't want it to affect their track eligibility. They both own jerseys with our store name on them already, so they will not be receiving any prizes or benefit from running on the team. Please let me know if they can run on the store team for this event without making them ineligible for the track season. The students may run since it will be during the off season for both cross country and track. They may compete on the team, but cannot receive any benefits other than a trophy, etc. They could wear the t-shirts, but you would want to refrain from using any photos with them in any advertising. Can a club volleyball organization, not associated with the school, give a scholarship to a 9th grade student to pay her fees for the club? The club wanted to ask to make sure that if they scholarship her fees, that she does not lose amateur status. So long as any student who wants to have fees paid for the opportunity can also get reimbursed. Athletes may only have reimbursement for actual and necessary costs associated with transportation, food, lodging and entry fees paid in connection with playing a contest. This opportunity may not be a "benefit" based on performance, e. My varsity girls basketball team has asked if it is legal for a private party to purchase pink shoes for them to wear in a game for cancer fundraiser. My response is that if the private party wants to purchase them for any girl in our school who would be interested in them it would be ok. Just for the varsity girls basketball team would not be allowed. Am I correct? Then they said what if the private party donated the money to the basketball booster club and the club purchased the shoes for the team? My response was that I would not allow it because I viewed it as a way of skirting the rule. Am I correct there as well? You are correct. If the private group the booster club is not considered school wanted to purchase the shoes and gift them to the school, the school could issue them as part of the uniform. At the end of the season, the school could sell them to the players for a reasonable not outrageous price or the school should keep them. We are having a conference showcase on January All conference girls teams will play that day. I was going to have a couple of players from the corresponding boys teams compete in a 3 pt. Is that ok? As you have described the contest, this would not meet our membership rules. Our Rules of Eligibility page 37 of the WIAA Handbook state a student becomes ineligible in a sport for the remainder of the season for competing in nonschool game, meet, or contest in the same sport during the season of practice or competition established by the school ROE, VIA. In addition, our membership rules of amateur status state: A student may not receive such merchandise items as shirts, jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts, jerseys, warm-ups, equipment, balls, duffel bags, backpacks, watches, rings, billfolds, coupons, gift certificates, e. Question on awards for representatives for our school for Wendy's High School Heisman. I believe every school that has students fill out the forms receives one boys winner and one girls winner. Article IV, Section 1, B. Just wondering if I am taking this too literally. A student could participate in the contest — but is not able to accept or direct to school or any other person or place, the various cash awards which are mentioned. My guess is no as this would essentially be the same as the student athlete accepting the cash award. The answer to your question is that a student athlete may NOT direct to another, reimbursement or award in any form a salary, b cash, merchandise of any kind or amount or d share of game or season proceeds, for achievement in athletics. Some additional detail for random draw based contests: Thus, you must always see the person whose name is drawn is the person that "performs" the skill. This year, our team wore a small helmet sticker on the back of our helmets honoring a classmate of our seniors who had passed away in elementary school. In honor of that, the mother of the former classmate we had honored approached me about the possibility of her purchasing from our school the jerseys of our seniors, who were the classmates of her late son. She wanted to give them as a gift their home game jerseys that they had worn this year. I was wondering if this was acceptable. Would she have to wait and give it to them after they graduated from high school? She would like to give them to them for Christmas. I didn't want to do anything to hurt their eligibility. Our membership rules pertaining to amateur status allow students to purchase uniforms from schools according to the procedures in place by the administration and board of education. If your school has a practice of allowing anyone and everyone the opportunity to purchase used uniforms, then the situation as you describe it may be done. If your school does not have a practice in place of allowing anyone and everyone the opportunity to purchase used uniforms, I suggest that you go to your administration and board of education to establish such a program in order to satisfy the amateur status rule. As far as a team goes, however, can a sport teams' fund-raised money be used to supplement all players purchase of something like polo shirts or warm-ups? Reimbursement may only be for transportation, lodging, and food for competition from an outside group or school. A t-shirt is allowed, but polo shirts or warm ups are not. The owner of a pizza parlor has shown interested in making a donation to the program in return for advertising in the form of a half-court shot contest. For each home game, we would randomly select one fan in attendance and give them a chance at the "X half court super shot" or something similar. Anyone who makes the shot wins a gift certificate to the restaurant, with the certificate being provided by the pizza parlor. If they have a banner, I would offer to place that in the gym, and a few announcements would be made during the game to plug the contest and the pizza parlor. Before I return the call and start talking about anything substantial like donation size, I want to make sure I have the green light here. As described — this is OK provided everyone has the opportunity through random draw. If everyone who buys a ticket gets the opportunity: XI, Rules of Eligibility Art. When looking at random draws: Be sure your number is broad and not skewed 'by just the JV players sitting in the bleacher's when lucky ticket's drawn' Opportunity is then no longer, random. This may only be done during regular season games and not WIAA tournament games. Is it a violation for a booster club to pay for a Tri-State All-Star game fee out-of-season for a senior athlete? A student may be reimbursed actual and necessary costs associated with competing. This may include transportation, food, lodging, and entry fees. I have a niece that races go-carts in the summer and receives trophies, ribbons, etc. She also receives a payout at the end of the season. She is a freshman this year, and I am wondering if this will affect her amateur status. Will she be able to participate in school athletics? Thus — since the Association does not presently sponsor interscholastic go-carting, amateur status restrictions do not apply. Same as we do not sponsor lumberjack events, bass fishing, snowmobiling, motocross, BMX or rodeo, e. On the other hand however - even though student plays school football, basketball and baseball — and then while golfing with dad or buddy in summer event hits closest to the pin and wins a sleeve of balls, or sandwich at the club house, or a new driver, e. I am the site director for a hockey training facility. We are looking to sponsor a player of the week for one of the Web sites that covers hockey and already awards a player of the week. I was hoping that you could verify that this is not a violation of any rules and we will not get any players into trouble by sponsoring the player of the week. I was also wondering if it would be legal for us to give a free team or individual training session to each player that is honored with the player of the week award? Sponsors can be used for a player of the week if done properly. We would be happy to review your plan to ensure no violations to amateur status for the athletes. As for an award or benefit, athletes may not receive discounts for merchandise or services unless offered to ALL students. Please refer to our rules on our Web site. Is there a way that a club can legally provide financial assistance to a family of an athlete who can not afford the full club program? If a club wishes to reimburse, they may do so provided: ANY student who wants to have fees paid for the opportunity can also get reimbursed. This opportunity may not be a "benefit" based on performance,e. Athletes may be reimbursed actual and necessary costs associated with competition. I am the boys basketball coach at a member school. We are playing in a holiday tournament over Christmas break this year and are thinking about staying overnight in a hotel. I was wondering if it would be legal for our booster club to help pay some of the cost of the hotels or if the school would have to pick up the entire bill. I just want to make sure that we handle this correctly so we're not violating any rules. This can get done — in either of a couple ways. Both "work" within our member's rules. Since our Bylaws and Amateur status rules provide that "costs associated with competition" can be reimbursed, the boosters could either pay the hotel bill directly or they could "gift the school" the necessary amount and the school could cut the check. There might even be some tax exempt benefit to the second way. But either way will work within the rules. Our volleyball team would like to go see another team play as a team. Can our coach pay for them to get into the game? Can they use money they raised though fundraisers? Or do they each have to pay their own way into the game? As a form of entertainment, this is acceptable. It is viewed as "group entertainment" and permitted by the Bylaws and Rules of Eligibility. In addition, the payment can be from any source provided it is offered to everyone. Wanted to clear with you any potential conflict we could avoid with Web site video we are planning to shoot in September for our clinic. We are doing a 60 second video, and some 30 second clips of our clinic to describe who we are and what we do. We will be getting consents of any minors see attached form and they will not receive any type of financial reimbursement or remuneration. In addition, they will not have on any team logo gear. Is there anything else they or we should or would need to be cautious of as the last thing we would ever want to do is risk or even question ANY eligibility? Thanks for checking in advance. Being paid is only a portion of the member's provision. It also talks about "being identified as an athlete". There are three ways most common in considering a student having been identified — by text or spoken word, by apparel and by props. Apparel does not necessarily need to be just the school's uniform to convey the student is an athlete. Best advice, best practice is to use young adults — recent graduates — who have no high school eligibility remaining. Another best practice recommendation is to simply use actors — students who are not athletes at all — then you have far greater liberties. When I say it's best practice, it's because of our many experiences where one promotion stimulates another in a neighboring business and that business owner does not take the precautions you have contemplated, does not contact us as you have — and does harm to another member's students. Since we try to help all of our members we must maintain that awareness of the connection of all that goes on. If you would like us to preview your idea before you launch it we will be happy to do so. Can a business put a high school team logo s in their ads in support of their local team s? With permission of the school due to licensing issues, you may do so. When athletes are involved, the rules are more strict. We own a hockey pro shop and would like to give a 10 percent discount to all high school hockey players in the area. Player comes in to purchase a piece of equipment and they say they are on the ABC team, and we make sure they are on the roster that we received from their coach and then we give them the 10 percent. Is this okay to do? Our membership rules require the athletes who participate in WIAA athletics be amateur athletes. In the situation which you stated, would be a violation of our rules. This includes but is not limited to: I have a couple returning starters who will be seniors that would like their jersey from last year to take senior pictures that are scheduled before the start of try-outs. Is this legal per WIAA? As long as your school allows uniforms to be issued in the summertime and your athletes comply with the amateur status rules, this would not be a problem. There are times when photographers may wish to display pictures of students in athletic wear in their studio, etc. The students should not receive any cash or merchandise in the form of discounts in the cost of the picture, waiver of sitting fees, free wallet-size photos, and similar inducements if identified as an athlete or selected because of being an athlete. The athlete may not provide an endorsement in any promotional event for the photographer. Below you will find the text of an offer extended to our school that would use some of our athletes in a commercial. Would this be a problem regarding amateur status? It is a newer product on the frozen pizza market. We are putting together a T. I would like the opportunity to talk with you about the chance of using some of your players in the commercial. In turn, I would donate some food for fund raising for the walking the path drive. We have the thought of running a football theme commercial as well as having weekly drawings for pep rallies at local high schools. If you could let me know if this is of interest to you I would like to sit down and work out the details and schedule for taping. This is absolutely a problem. A violation of the amateur status would be career ending. Our radio stations are planning to create an Athlete of the Week award presented to a senior student beginning this fall and we would like to partner with a business in presenting a scholarship to an Athlete of the Year selected from all the weekly winners at the end of the school year. Is there any problem with this proposal? Our member's amateur status provisions are outline in Art. To begin, WIAA rules do not prevent a student from receiving a college scholarship. We recommend the funds be paid directly to the student's school at the start of their second semester of college; but what you decide to do for a senior who has graduated - is really up to you. One of the most common perils we encounter in some promotions is the student "appearing" to be endorsing a business, service, product or plan. This often happens unintentionally. If we receive copies of the piece, we are also glad to work with businesses to try to help avoid any negatives from arising from what you are intending to be a good thing. Our local recreation department is starting a men's softball league this summer and the director contacted me with a question. He was wondering if high school athletes are allowed to participate? There will be a cash payout to the winning team, but nothing to individuals. Student athletes could enter the league and play. They may not, however, accept, receive or direct to another cash or merchandise awards. My question is this: I have some track t-shirts that I received at no cost. I thought of giving them away to track athletes, one at a time per week. No Problem. Both in the Bylaws, Art. Where do students stand regarding the Wendy's Heisman award recognizing athletic, academic and citizenship and "amateur status? Students are judged based on their academic achievements, community service involvement, and athletic accomplishments. Up until last year, schools identified a male and female nominee, much like we do with the WIAA scholar athlete. Last year, Wendy's changed the nomination process to allow any student to "nominate themselves" online. Is it acceptable for us to take photos of physicians rendering care to student athletes and then displaying such photos in our clinic office as artwork? I understand we would need to get a photo consent from the minor athlete's parent, but I need to ensure we would not violate WIAA regulations. What you are proposing could hold the potential for a student to lose their high school eligibility for the balance of their school career. There is one strategy by which you could accomplish this promotion yet not adversely affect the students you photographed — if you developed a "calendar file" of photos and always used this spring's graduates in next year's promotions. I am the head boy's soccer coach at a member high school. I have some 8th graders coming up next year who are Hmong and are said to be good players. I don't know yet if they play in Hmong leagues, but my concern is if they plan on playing in any Hmong soccer tournaments, which as far as I can tell, all offer cash prizes to the winners. It is my impression that under Article IVB, there is no way they can participate in such a tournament without permanently forfeiting their amateur status. Is there any circumstance where they could? The rule simply provides that a WIAA student athlete may not "accept, receive or direct to another any cash or merchandise award. In addition to the amateur status, be sure to talk with your students about the nonschool competition rules. As part of a promotional brochure we have put together for a local business, we have included a picture of one of our employees playing "soft toss. He was not paid any money for the use of the picture. Have we violated any WIAA rules? Sight unseen difficult to say with certainty - but potentially, yes. If student is an undergraduate and has hopes of playing any more WIAA sports during this school year - Do not use this photo until you have brought it past the school's AD. An athlete can be identified as an athlete — by text, by apparel, by props. An amateur status violation is career ending for a high school student. Lastly, you should always consult with the local athletic director on matters that could affect school sport eligibility. Our basketball club is interested in sponsoring an all-star game for players in our conference. The game would only involve seniors that have finished playing their high school basketball career. If they want to play the game sometime after the State Tournament, is there a deadline as to when they can play the game during the school year? I believe seniors are OK to play even if they are spring sport athletes, correct? They also gave me a copy of a "Q and A" from sometime past concerning all-star games. The Q and A references Art. IV, a question concerning this article is the following: Can a high school coach only coach a team if none of the players on either team are out for a spring sport? This is very clear from the Bylaws Art. IV which stems from our members fundamental opposition to all-star events; which they had viewed as exploitive of students. There is not a deadline for seniors to participate in the game as you have proposed. I've got a couple questions that are somewhat similar. They've requested pictures of our team playing there so that they can put them on their field website. Is this OK? My impression so far is that they want to have a photo section that shows various pictures of the many teams that use the field. Not sure if they are selling advertising on this site to outside businesses. Would that be a factor in determining acceptability? Is it OK to put pictures of our athletes on such a card? What's on the site, how the photos are used is essential to know and see before being able to say. Selling advertising is only one of the concerns in this type of idea. Can a booster club at a school help pay a fee that an athlete has to pay to be on a club volleyball team? To begin, a player of the week, team of the week, e. The recognition may be afforded without peril. But school administration and coaches must have oversight. In the case I referred to at WADA, an area TV station and an area pizza vendor - under the guise of selecting a "team of the week" picked several area HS's over the course of the fall season and when the team was notified they were team of the week and would receive a pizza dinner for the team which can be allowed — Bylaws Art. XI, Sect 2A. The pizza arrived but so did a video camera which was given to the students. The students were asked to shoot several minutes of video which was then placed on the internet. What appeared on the internet was seen only as an advertisement for the pizza co. With some education of students, oversight by coaches and AD's and the business promotions staff a lot of distress and a year of probation could have been avoided. A local restaurant has offered to feed our football team free of charge this Wednesday. I looked at the Handbook to make sure this was not an amateur status violation and was not sure after reading it over a few times. Could you please clarify? We have some kids that are involved in wrestling and basketball. The last thing I want to do is jeopardize those seasons. So long as it's voluntary, not attached to some other "promotion" and is available to any on the team interested in attending - you can allow this. See Sr. High Handbook, Art. XI, Sect, 2A p. Her mother would like to solicit sponsors to help defray the costs of these trips. Does that endanger the runner, a junior, of her amateur status? On something like this I recommend caution. A student can be reimbursed actual and necessary costs associated with competition. That might be achieved without peril through solicitation. See Rules At A Glance: We have a group that would like to run some halftime contests where gift certificates could be awarded. Are there any restrictions outlined by the WIAA? Does the WIAA have any statements regarding advertising at games? Halftime contests is a broad description. They can take on many forms. Some may be specific skill of sport performance, others like an egg or water balloon toss - having nothing to do with skill of sport performance. Depending on how a student is provided access to the opportunity - whether by random draw, or by simply purchase a ticket and everyone gets a chance to play, as well as what a student will be doing in the contest will determine what a student athlete might be allowed to receive for winning. Of course for adults and non- students, WIAA rules and amateur status provisions have no bearing. In addition, what you choose to do during your own school's regular season will otherwise be largely up to you. Here is some discussion about random draw based contests for some additional detail. You are always most wise to take a "wide berth" around amateur status concerns. With respect to the "lucky ticket holder" and random draws - the rules say an athlete may not receive benefit as a result of "being an athlete" I have a question regarding the distribution of t-shirts and sweatshirts at a basketball league in which non-basketball players play in the winter. The league consists of teams from three communities. None of these players play basketball at the high school, but most participate in other WIAA sponsored sports. They simply join this winter league and play at church gyms within the communities. Is it acceptable for the winning team and second place team in the tournament at the end of the season to receive a sweatshirt first place and a t-shirt second place? I have read the "Amateur Status" requirements and stipulations, but am still uncertain. T-shirts have been identified by the members as acceptable for a student to receive. Sweatshirts have not been approved. See Bylaws, Art. XI, Sect. On the other hand, however, even though student plays school football, basketball and baseball — golfing with dad or buddy in summer event — hits closest to the pin and wins a sleeve of balls, or sandwich at the club house, or a new drive, e. We will be hosting a varsity volleyball tournament and may need to use JV players as line judges. My question is, is it allowable to pay them as we would an adult line judge? A student may be employed and you may compensate them. The only potential for assertion of inappropriateness comes when student is picked because they are the 'best' jv player s. Opportunity for the job should be available to any interested, and selected based on knowledge and ability to perform the work, not based on athletic abilities. We have a girl who is an incoming freshmen that participated in the Hershey track meet this summer and qualified for their national meet. She attended the meet, but her trip was paid for by Hershey. Is this a violation of amateur status? No, not a violation — provided the student did not accept or receive any other unacceptable awards. ROE, Art. IV Amateur Status provides in section B-1a. As students begin registering for school and sports, three questions have come up that we would like some feed back on. They do meet the criteria for free and reduced lunches. The questions are: We view this as costs associated with competition. The boosters should gift the school the necessary dollars that would meet this need. Some schools have this policy. Will this affect that student's amateur status? A local business wants to donate the t-shirts I intended to purchase for the year old summer baseball coach winning the Teen League State Tournament. Is there a violation there? The t-shirts would not mention the name of the business. Also, can a parent buy those same players a key chain celebrating their win of the same tournament? At present, a key chain is not. My daughter is going to be a senior this fall and she and two other HS girls have been asked to play on a co-ed slow pitch softball team that is going to be in a tournament in two weeks. They are the only players on the team that are still in high school. I have been told that they may play on this team as long as they DO NOT accept any prize money that may be given out at the end of the tournament even if the other members of the team accept the money. Is this correct? Essentially, yes. A student may not accept, receive or direct to another - cash or merchandise award. Would recommend you also discuss this with your school's AD. I am from a large city, and I am a senior in high school. I was emancipated from my parents and now I live on my own. However, life in the city is hard, and I decided that I am going to move to a small-town school. Before I actually do this, I just wanted to know if I would be able to play basketball in the new school if I make the team? Answer to your question is "no. We have a question regarding a job that my son was offered. He was given a position through the Park and Rec Dept. He plays on a varsity high school tennis team in the spring. Is there any conflict? Students can be employed in this manner — by rec depts. YMCA, country clubs, aquatic centers, etc. They just can not be self-employed in giving sport skills instruction. Our football team would like to take a picture during the first week of practice in the fall and make a poster of the picture. I know there is not a problem with this, but can they put advertisements on the posters to help pay for the cost of the posters? If they were to make a profit from the sale of posters, would this be a violation of the WIAA policies? It's a little difficult to say with certainty on this one — sight unseen. Fundamentally when you look at a poster — what's it conveying? So long as it's crystal clear that the local businesses are supporting team, school program — it's generally not been seen as a problem. If the posters are sold and proceeds placed in a booster or school account as a fund raising initiative — that has not presented amateur status concerns for the athletes. We have a few examples of posters on file that created problems for the athletes appearing in them. If you wish us to preview your poster in advance of it going to print — will do so gladly — if provided enough time. One of our baseball parents called me today with a question regarding them being contacted by a sports management firm. The letter to them indicated that their son may be considered for the baseball draft next week. There is absolutely no problem with a student and his parents speaking to a sports agent or firm - or a lawyer of their own choosing. Certainly, advise the student to not sign any contract with an agent or professional sport team until they're done with school sports. If a high school player plays baseball for an amateur baseball team in the summer, and the team he plays for receives prize money for playing in a tournament, does this take away the player's amateur status? He is the only player of high school age and does not directly receive the money. There are a number of HS student golfers, e. The student can compete - but just for competition's sake. The student and parents might wish to take some added measures to educate and create awareness that the student is an amateur and may not accept, receive or direct to another, cash or merchandise awards. If a high school athlete were given such an award, would that jeopardize their WIAA eligibility? Obviously, since your event is held Aug. Is there any issue with one of our high school junior ball players getting paid to work a basketball camp that we host for kids in grade school and middle school? Couple of questions for you: Is there anything that would prohibit us from doing that considering that we are only a private school? I was unable to locate one on the website. If not, what is the process? With respect to interstate competition; there is no form. High Handbook, Bylaw Art. II, Sect. Will simplify and summarize: Does this event require NFHS sanctions? If so, has the event received sanctioning? Are participating schools high schools? Are all schools members of their state association? In this case, with only four schools involved, disregard the first two points — the event would NOT require sanctioning. Also, include the dates the event will be held. If a softball team plays out-of-state non-bordering state and plays two games in two days is this in violation of 6f of the softball spring season regulations? Would we consider this an event rather than two competitions? No, this would not violate season regulations if it was your school's only out-of-state event. I am getting the odd request for donations for raffles, silent auctions, etc. Is this a violation? I would like clarification. Kids signing a t-shirt. It's names on a t-shirt. Violates amateur status provisions. Career ending. High Handbook, p. IV, Section B. To paraphrase; a student can be employed - but not self-employed in sport skills instruction. We have two junior high volleyball coaching positions in the district. The only interest is from a junior volleyball player and a graduating senior player. Or for the graduating senior if she is paid as well? A student can be employed. Can a student-athlete receive cash for participation in a bowling tournament? I have read through the amateur status section and am still unclear as it says they may not accept any cash or merchandise for achievement in athletics. In a word, "yes". Thus — since the Association does not presently sponsor interscholastic bowling amateur status restrictions do not apply. Same as we do not sponsor lumberjack events, bass fishing, snowmobiling, motocross, bmx or rodeo, e. On the other hand however - Even though student plays school football, basketball and baseball — and then while golfing with dad or buddy in summer event hits closest to the pin and wins a sleeve of balls, or sandwich at the club house, or a new driver, e. Our marketing department has just released some new commercials for our health care facility. They have a picture of a football player with a WIAA high school jersey with a number in the commercial. This individual is actually a university student non-athlete, non-paid actor. Answer is no. Whether paid or unpaid - A college student has no high school eligibility. He is not a full-time student at a member school and subsequently, is not subject to WIAA rules of eligibility. You were wise to use an actor — we are happy for that — but I am confused and question only the timing of seeking clarification as evidently the commercials have already been aired? A parent attended our WIAA eligibility presentation a few weeks back. His son is interested in participating in video game tournaments. Tournaments are large and small, individual and team with varying cash and material prizes. I am not sure this is considered a sport or even falls under WIAA rules. He has the potential to be sponsored by various companies as he progresses. He is working on local and national sponsorship right now. Or is it like modeling or working a job. Are there restrictions on his competition? What prizes can he accept and maintain his WIAA eligibility? This same interpretation is provided and applicable when asked about bowling, motocross, BMX, snowmobile racing, lumberjack olympics, rodeo and bass pro, etc. The amateur status rule would be enforced in an event such as an iron man triathlon! We do sponsor swim and running competition. I have a young lady from our school who qualified as a Wendy' s Heisman Candidate from our school. She did not receive state level recognition. Must be returned — if student is intending to participate in interscholastic athletics now or in the future. If not returned, student will be ineligible for the remainder of her HS career. Advise student to bring to you — you return, along with note and request response from Wendy's confirming they've received returned prize. Is it acceptable for several students to accept monetary support from local businesses to pay some of or all of the costs associated with a club sport club soccer during the off-season? Or does this threaten their amateur status? They are wondering if local businesses or individuals can assist in paying some of or all of this fee. Does this threaten their amateur status? Simple answer is no, not automatically a violation. This has unsavory potentials; e. Do you really wish to promote local business being hit yet again for personal interests of this kind? Help get kids a job. But the essence remains, 'no, not a violation out of hand. On page 34 of the Senior High Handbook Article IV, Section I of the rules of eligibility it lists those items that are permitted and those which are prohibited. One of the items that is prohibited is "balls". So that I can clarify this to my committee members, is there a distinction between "balls" and "game balls" or is this a typo? Made to team for "tonight's victory," sometimes signed by all team mates and coaches. Game balls awarded in this manner, are seen the same as trophy only more special. But nonetheless - a 'symbolic' award when given in this manner. Hitting closest to the pin or longest drive, I won a summer long supply of golf balls. Again, nothing symbolic in this. For making the winning basket, the local dealer gave me a brand new basketball of my own, just to shoot around with. Someone wants to buy basketball shoes for our three boys teams. Is this legal? Red flags just went up when they told me. Shoes — just given to athletes - would be an amateur status violation. If the benefactor wished to 'gift' the school district and in turn you wished to issue shoes to your teams, you could do that. They then become school property issued just like shoulder pads and should be collected and reissued or collected and discarded following the season in accordance with school board policy. Also see Art. IV, Rules of Eligibility p. I would also recommend there be administrative discussion on the topic from a gender equity perspective — is there anyone who will provide the same for the girls? My 10th grade advisor is running a John Madden Play Station football tournament. Can he give cash away to athletes as a prize? We would not regard it as a "best practice" by any stretch, however. I have a question concerning shoe discounts for students and teams. Am I correct to assume that the following is allowable and not an amateur status violation: A vendor wishes to provide a team discount to players if so many pairs of shoes are purchased by a team. In this case the school buys the shoes, pays the vendor and collects the money from the players that make the team. Otherwise any discount from the vendor would have to be available to any student in the school population. I do not like this model — I prefer the model where every kid who goes out - gets the discount just for going out. Or better yet, every kid and teacher in school can show up in the cafeteria Thurs. In years past, schools used to provide basketball shoes to teams. As I understand the question — this is not that model. From that perspective then at least — the discount in the model IS performance based Would not advise could not support. We would like to recognize students that participate in three sports by giving them a t-shirt. The only requirement would be that they were out for three sports the previous year. Yes - no problem. Can students who receive free or reduced lunch have participation fees waived without risking eligibility? Yes — Amateur status provisions allow students to be "reimbursed" for costs directly associated with competition. We had a senior high school girl get a hole in one at our Booster Hockey Golf Outing. Can she accept the prize, a two-year lease of a car, or would that impact her high school eligibility this year? Answer's "no. Would end her high school career. I am a member of the largest running organization in Wisconsin with about members. Our organization already has a working relationship with many of the shoe stores in southeastern Wisconsin so I don't believe it would take much convincing to get their participation. The stores could collect the forms and "cash" them in through our organization. Am certainly open to other suggestions but I believe the heart of this program would need to be the coaches themselves because they would need to identify those in need and provide them with the necessary forms. There may be a way to achieve your interests and ends without peril to a student athlete. It is not the course you've initially identified. But an alternate path might deliver the results you hope to achieve, nonetheless. Always remember — these are the school's programs, not any one coaches. I received an email from a minor league baseball club. They are hosting a "Hometown Champions" night and are wondering if our athletes would participate. Athletes would be encouraged to wear their uniforms and school apparel to the game that night and would be announced on the field during pregame over the PA system. All individuals affiliated with our championship winning teams would receive a discounted two for one ticket deal. It appears to me that this would violate WIAA rules of eligibility, since the athletes would be receiving a discount based upon athletic achievement. It is the two for one promotion that prompts me to say 'NO can do" on this one as it is presently outlined. As per Bylaws p. XI, Section 2B: When the business uses the students with two for one promotions to try to get business in the door, students are not able to take part in that. Can the hospital donate the bottles to the school, and then the school distributes as they deem appropriate give to athletes only? Can the hospital donate the bottles to the booster club, who then donates to athletes? But with the tournament beginning on Sunday, you will find both names reflected over the next two weeks in the abbreviated hash tags RG13 and FO It is a linguistic divide. French speakers call the tournament, not just the stadium in which it is played, Roland Garros. Native English speakers, despite repeated attempts to convert them, still overwhelmingly favor French Open. But it is also a cultural divide: Europeans, with the exception of the British, strongly favor Roland Garros. So do South Americans, whose players have been major factors here through the years. French Open officials have long hoped that China — a late arrival to tennis fandom — would follow their lead. But they are increasingly bowing to the obvious. The identity issue was once considered an identity crisis by French Federation officials, who, at different stages of the s and s, aggressively encouraged the print and electronic media covering the tournament to use Roland Garros and only Roland Garros. We have Internet, Facebook. But actions, for the moment, speak louder than diplomacy, and the tournament is continuing to emphasize Roland Garros on multiple fronts. The official tournament Web site frenchopen. What exists now is rolandgarros. He said frenchopen. Nonetheless, a few key strokes shows who is winning the numbers game. But if English trumps French on the Internet, there are still small victories. It was a bit of a mess. The rub is that Roland Garros, the French fighter pilot for whom the stadium is named, was not much interested in playing or watching tennis. He was a rugby player, one who was killed when his plane was shot down in near the end of World War I. Friends later requested that the tennis stadium be named for him when it was built to stage the Davis Cup final between the United States and France..

I received an email from a minor league baseball club. They are hosting a "Hometown Champions" night and are wondering if our athletes would participate. Athletes would be encouraged to wear their uniforms and school apparel to the game that night and would be announced on the field during pregame over the PA system. All individuals affiliated with our championship winning teams would receive a discounted two for one ticket deal. It appears to me that this would violate WIAA rules of eligibility, since the athletes would be receiving a discount based upon athletic achievement. It is the two for one promotion that prompts me to say 'NO can do" on this one as it is presently outlined. As per Bylaws p. XI, Section 2B: When the business uses the students with two for one promotions to try to get business in the door, students are not able to take part in that. Can the hospital donate the bottles to the school, and then the school distributes as they deem appropriate give to athletes only? Can the hospital donate the bottles to the booster club, who then donates to athletes? Or - 'every student who goes out for a sport' should receive a water bottle. Can we have player awards that are sponsored? For instance can we have a "Culvers Player of the Week? No gift or anything like that. Player of the game, the week, As you describe - there would be no peril for student. So long as when we look and see the business, product, service is percent 'endorsing' student, team, school I am an athletic trainer — at my facility we have a training program and would like to roll the program out at a reduced price to employees and their immediate family members. We are offering the program to all employees, so all students would be eligible for the same discount, whether an athlete or not. If I could get something in writing either supporting or denying this proposal, it would greatly help. At least not if is as straight forward as described; i. I have a potential donor that is interested in setting up a need based scholarship for students returning to our private high school, but they would like to base one of the criteria for awarding the scholarship on athletic participation during the previous year. My concern is that while we may be able to award a scholarship to a student coming into our school based on music or art or science interest, if we start to allow scholarships to be awarded based on interest in athletics, will that fall under the recruitment ruling? Your assessment and concerns are right on the mark. Financial aid that has anything to do with athletic interests, potential, ability or performance - would render the student ineligible for their entire HS career and place your school in a status of severe non-compliance. We have had experience in this area where zealous booster members have caused great distress for members on occasion. I would like to approach a local photographer to ask them to donate a complimentary photo for each of our honored student-athletes. Would we run into a problem giving each recipient a 5x7 photo? Can you approve this, or would it violate the amateur standing rule and the rule regarding gifts? We have a player that did not dress because of grades last nighty in our 1st tournament game. At mid term our code states they become eligible as soon as they correct the grade. At the end of the quarter or semester we follow the 1 week or 15 day scenario. Can't find this in the book and want to make sure we follow procedure - I believe they are ineligible for the remainder of the tournament. Please confirm. There are three types of rules: Keep in mind that athletes who are ineligible during the WIAA tournament for any reason may not appear in uniform, participate in warm-ups, and may not participate in the awards ceremony at the WIAA tournament p. In this question and situation, the athlete may return when they become academically eligible. Always apply your code as written. Just a quick question on 15 day ineligibility. I am sure I am right on this one, but I know the parent is going to be asking questions and I want to be prepared. A wrestler's 15 day ineligibility ends today because it is the 15th day. He is not eligible for regionals tomorrow because it is not a scheduled school day correct? His eligibility would resume on Monday. He becomes eligible on the 16th scheduled school day: Our district recently passed a policy that students be required to maintain a 2. The question that has been brought up is, what happens to the special ed students who try as they might, can't make this new GPA requirement. Is there anything that can be written in the IEP to allow them to participate in these activities and "outrank" the school policy? Some have said that if it's written in the IEP than it should be followed. But, this really doesn't relate to FAPE does it? I don't know if others have experience with this and if there has been any court cases that have set a precedence for something like this. I completely agree with the basic premise I read in your comments Your district may want to address the 2. It may be done either, individually, based on identified and specific needs in the IEP. It may be done as broad policy. Either way, it ought to be "spelled out" keep in mind that if you put a different standard then 2. We would NOT set aside the "no F" component. We would not accept failure for a student. As I recall, our expectations for waiving the gpa, included: We designed the model for weekly or bi-weekly feedback from teachers. The student was responsible to initiate all contacts between teachers, AD and coaches. We have one varsity soccer team, a red JV soccer team and a white JV soccer team, and a red freshman team and a white freshman team. I understand that academic ineligibility stemming from a fourth quarter failing grade shall result in the lesser of 21 calendar days beginning with the date of earliest competition September 14 or one third of the maximum games allowed in a sport. Is one third of the games allowed based solely on the varsity season schedule, or each schedule for each level? As an example, one third of the JV season is a different "date" for eligibility than one third of a varsity season. In turn, one third of the season in the JV red schedule is different than one third for the white schedule. Is it possible to have, five different dates of eligibility based on what one-third of a season is? Or is the one-third of the season based on the varsity schedule and, therefore, soccer has one "date" for eligibility. Understood is the lesser of 21 days or one-third. The 21 calendar days would be the same "count" for all, i. In so far as JV and varsity, the max number of games that can be scheduled is the same for all sports, e. You are correct to adjust figure for frosh. The max they are allowed is Thus one third is 5. We have a student who competed in wrestling during grades The family moved to Florida, while the wrestler moved to live and work with grandparents in Puerto Rico for one year. The wrestler did not receive any education for the year. The wrestler returned to our school, established residency with parents, and plans to complete his senior year. Is the wrestler eligible to compete as a "fifth year senior" having only completed six semesters of education? The wrestler will turn 18 during the upcoming school year. Not without a consecutive semester waiver. A student has the potential for up to eight consecutive semesters of eligibility beginning with grade nine. His consecutive semester "clock" or count begins when he began 9th grade. That he or the family chose to take a year off does not stop that count. In the most recent grade-reporting period. Grades go on transcripts at the end of each nine week term. But every three weeks we make available "progress reports. Now we have a new computer network grading program that does not allow these phrases to be used. For progress reports, we will have to give out actual letter grades now. Our code of conduct refers to grades at the end of each nine week term - the progress reports had no impact on eligibility. May we continue to consider the most recent grade reporting period to be the ones that occur at every nine weeks? Your dilemma is not unique. For added awareness and clarification, you might find a way to document that: Academic eligibility for all extra curricular activities shall be based on the actual nine week grade which is the grade that will appear on the student's permanent record of this term. This is just an idea. Bottom line, the "progress report" is not the "final" grade Does competition mean when practice starts, or when games start. I used the start of the season, and was questioned on it. We have the same wording in our code as the WIAA for fall sports. Earliest date of competition is the date of first game. Not the date practice may begin. See Handbook pgs. There is also a matrix for fall sport eligibility on the web and on p. Penalties for use of ineligible players is outline on p. I would like your input on the following situation. A student this summer transferred from our school to School X and wants to play football. In looking at his academic record for last semester, he received two failing grades from us. However, the student took two sessions of science in summer school at X High School and received a passing grade for both classes. The student failed both physical science and world cultures at our school. In looking at the bylaws it states a student may become eligible through summer school provided the courses made up are equivalent. The School X coach is asking me to determine whether or not the student would be eligible. How does one determine if the classes are equivalent in this case? My feeling is that the student would be eligible at X. Please note I am not sure how the science classes compare. If he failed three classes he'd need to make up at least two, etc. That's the "equivalent" number of F's that made him not eligible. If you were a "No F" policy, then the equivalent is two classes made up Under no circumstance could a student erase multiple failures with less then the same number of classes completed in summer. Also, it has not been interpreted to mean that if the student failed geometry, they must re-take geometry in the summer or even another math class for that matter. We are addressing number of failures and classes We have several students that have not done well in regular education classes that will be in an on-site GED program during the school year. In your opinion, are these students eligible to compete in extra-curricular activities? Provided these students are enrolled as full-time students, same as every other student, make the necessary grades not more then one F, etc. You can find the added definition for full-time student on p. I have a question regarding academic eligibility of a transfer student. The student transferring to our school passed all of his classes for the second semester, but had failing grades for two of the classes in the fourth quarter. Which grades take precedence for academic eligibility, the second semester grades or the fourth quarter grades? The WIAA does not determine whether a school must count the quarter or semester grade. That's the school's "call". Our only stipulation is that whatever you use to determine academic eligibility it is the "standard" and is used all of the time and by all sport participants. Not using the quarter grades for "this student or team" and the semester grade for the other student or team. If there is a trend, it might be to look at the quarter grades for sport eligibility. If eligibility is a "privilege" then some feel that maintaining that privilege is an earn as you go proposition, and that the quarter grade is the most accurate reflection of what the "student's doing now" in order to preserve the privilege of access to sport competition. In this situation the discussion revolves around whether to use semester grades or quarter grades, when a student is transferring, the "receiving school's" academic policy is applied regarding semester or quarter grade usage. But always apply the sending code for the determination of ineligibility. If the sending school is one failing grade and one quarter of ineligibility while your code is two failing grades and 15 scheduled school days of ineligibility, use the sending school's one failing grade and one quarter of ineligibility. In cases where there is a code of conduct issue lingering, the sending school's code applies. That's the code the student knew and "signed on to. Last year, we had foreign exchange students who were sophomores. They were members of a program and WIAA eligible. This year as juniors they returned and were not part of a program and, therefore, not WIAA eligible. If they return next year as seniors would they be eligible to participate? I am reading the rule stating that after one year of ineligibility students become eligible if attendance is continuous. Handbook, p. What is the rule on a club paying for part of a high school student's summer wrestling camp. See the Rules at a Glance. The WIAA recognizes a distinction between training and competing. Students must pay their own expenses, including transportation, to any nonschool out-of-season camps, clinics, or specialized training. Schools may pay expenses and provide transportation to similar in-season activities in that sport and during unrestricted contact days in the summer. This may include transportation, food, lodging and entry fees. A school may not become involved financially, through transportation or any other way in a student's nonschool participation outside the sport season and the five Board of Control approved unrestricted contact days in the summer. BL — Art. II, RE — Art. IV and Art. VI Note: Funds kept in school activity accounts are considered school funds. The only time camps may be paid for athletes is during the five unrestricted contact days and it must be available to any and all interested students. Coaches may not coach their athletes outside of the season. If your coaches work a non-school camp during the school year, their athletes could not work the same camp. Note, schools may not conduct camps during the school year out of season. See the following on the Rules at a Glance: So long as participation is voluntary and available to all interested students: There shall be no restrictions upon schools, school teams and school coaches grades relative to assembling in the summertime, for up to 5 days, which do not need to be consecutive. Unrestricted contact days must conclude no later than July A school may conduct a clinic for students in grades 8 and below, where high school varsity and junior varsity coaches may use some or all of their high school athletes as clinicians. This may be done for a maximum of six days during the summer when school is not in session and must conclude no later than July Clinics not utilizing athletes as clinicians may be conducted throughout the summer up to the start of school. School facilities may be used for nonschool programs, according to board of education policy, which can result in clinics being conducted, outside the season, by nonschool groups. The nonschool group must request the facilities from the board of education or governing board, through normal procedures and are encouraged to provide their own insurance protection. II and RE — Art. VI, Sect. I am aware that students from another district cannot participate in our open gyms during the summer, but what about camps. Can a girl from the neighboring district participate in a volleyball camp sponsored by our coach and intended for our district girls? Can our coach restrict it to only our girls, or can she promote it with other schools if she wants? How would any of these scenarios affect the contact days allowed for our coach? Here are some summer camp thoughts. It must be voluntary and not mandatory. Coaching restrictions apply. Camps during the five unrestricted days may take place after the last day of school and before July Schools may provide transportation, instruction, etc. Outside of the five unrestricted days, coaches may not coach athletes they will coach the next season. Schools may not conduct camps during the school year. If a reduced price is offered it must be provided to all participants. The only way for booster club funds to be used is to gift them to the school and the school to use booster gifts during the five unrestricted days. High school students may work a lower level camp as a clinician, but the camps may not be longer than six days and must be completed before July However, Captains' practices are not allowed during the school year. I am wondering if a booster club can cover the cost of a hotel room when players go to a team camp in the summer time? I am thinking of having my team attend a team camp in Green Bay, and while I know I cannot pay for their entry fee to the team camp, I am wondering if I can pay for the lodging at a hotel. In order to provide an accurate answer, I would need to know if the camp is part of your five unrestricted contact days or is not a part of the five unrestricted contact days. Then that and other school funds could be used to provide camp opportunity for - ALL - interested students. If the camp were not part of your unrestricted contact days, the answer would be "No. Students must pay their own expenses, including transportation to any non-school out-of-season camps. Logistics could be accommodated by having students cover their own cost for the bus transportation. If they wished to ride bus. All interested students could travel by bus if they desired, but would need to cover their own bus ticket costs to camp in this scenario. I am writing as the president on behalf of our wrestling club which is not associated with our school. We are a non-profit association organized to promote the sport of wrestling for ages pre-K - high school. Are we able to reimburse the athlete for their expenses to attend a summer camp held off-site from school? Actually to be held at another school district I've read under summer reminders at the Web site Also, what if the club is hosting a fundraiser event such as a car wash or brat fry - are the athletes able to split those profits and pay for their camp fees with that money? Our member schools have allowed reimbursement for some costs associated with competition and not camps or clinics. Competition would include meets or tournaments. Training would include practice, camps, or clinics. Schools may pay expenses and provide transportation to similar in-season activities in that sport and during unrestricted contact days in the sum- mer. The WIAA members have stated in the Rules of Eligibility page 38 Article VI, Section 2, 5, that any fees for entrance to the clinic must be paid for by the students or parents in order to not affect the amateur status of any participants. I read over the Handbook, the eligibility section, and could not find specific language for paying for entry fees to camps over the summer. We have a few parents that would like to do a fundraiser to raise some money to offset the cost of the camp. There are nine girls that are looking to go to a camp this summer and it is quite expensive. A few of the parents thought that if they were to do a fundraiser, they could help offset the cost for some of the families. Would this be a violation of amateur status? During the summer, if the fund-raised money is kept in a nonschool account and the fundraisers wished to cover the costs for all students interested in summer league play, they could cover costs associated with competition. If it is during your unrestricted five days, then the money could be gifted to the school and used during that time. Can our booster club give a student-athlete money to go to a summer camp such as a scholarship? Also, we do a fundraiser every year, can I use some of that money so a kid could go to a camp? Simple answer is no. See III- F of attached. Can the girl's soccer coach pay for a team camp with the girl's activity account. Similarly, if my softball coach wants to send her team to a clinic is this something she can pay for out of her activities account? The girls fundraise through working concession stands and I just wanted to double check to make sure that this is an appropriate way to pay for this team clinic. To begin, ALWAYS remember, once money is placed in a school account — it is — school money; regardless how it got there or who put it in. School monies can be used. If not a part of the unrestricted days, then — no; kids would need to pay their own way. Can hockey players be used to help coach a youth camp by demonstrating drills to the kids and working with lower level kids on skill development. This camp would be held before the start of the high school season and would be for players in elementary and middle school. The simple answer is yes. There are a number of caveats. Schools may not sponsor camps or clinics except in the summer. Students could be present and — volunteer - to assist parents — so long as school coaches were not present. School coaches could assist parents — but not when their HS team players are present. My volleyball coach would like to set up a camp for high school students during the week of August She knows she can not coach in the camp and another person would be in charge of the camp. Is there any restrictions with this request? The end result of this can be achieved within Association rules, fairly easily. There are caveats. Keep in mind that the time period your coach has identified as a desirable period for a camp is both outside the actual school season and outside the unrestricted contact dates. Bylaws do identify that school facilities can be used by non-school groups in accordance with school district policies Art. Additionally, the Rules of Eligibility Art. Some of the previous response can also be found at least partially addressed in the Rules At A Glance, Art. II, C and A, especially. Will high school girls be in any kind of violation if they choose to attend such a camp? The simple answer is 'No. There were two significant caveats contained in my response: First, students must cover their own expenses to camps and clinics at this time of year.. I am a varsity girl's basketball coach and I was just wondering what the regulations are if our booster club wanted to pay for athletic teams to go to a team camp? I know that I as a coach nor the school is allowed to pay but are there any restrictions from an outside source such as a booster club paying for players to go to camp? Or does this infringe on a "sponsor" so to speak in that it would look like someone is sponsoring players to attend camp? The school would typically make an announcement to notify all interested 'girls' who might want to have access to a camp opportunity. Can a high school, public or private, entertain a sports team or group of middle school students from another school at the high school and conduct either a sports related clinic or open house? Does it have to be the whole grade invited, or can a select group of students be targeted? Or in other words, do the rules prohibiting the singling out of high school students for school enrollment apply to middle school students? Example 1: A parochial middle school volleyball team is invited to the local public high school to observe and participate in a session with the high school volleyball team? Example 2: An entire 8th grade from a parochial middle school is invited to an open house during the school day at the private high school? Your school can legitimately provide a variety of opportunities to let middle school students know about you. But at this time of year — a member school can not sponsor a 'clinic". Would it be against WIAA rules, for a club to pay for a camp for it's high school wrestlers? The yes or no to this depends a bit on when the camp is going to be held. If this camp is held prior to the start of the school season, then the answer would be no. The school, then in turn — could "send their whole team to camp" if they chose. Rules of Eligibility text; Art. VI, Section 2C-5note Sr. High Handbook p. Can our basketball coach use fundraising money, raised by the basketball players, to pay an entrance fee into a summer basketball league and an AAU tournament? The money is located in a school activity account. For days outside those designated, 'no. I am a varsity head coach and want to hold a youth football camp at the school this summer. Do I need to do this prior to Aug. Lastly, if I can utilize the high schoolers at the camp, can I do this after Aug. You can use your HS athletes as clinicians BUT - if you wish to use your athletes as clinicians the camp must conclude no later then July There are colleges that offer "team camps" in which you can coach your team and participate against other teams. Is there anything in the WIAA Handbook that prohibits a high school team from practicing with another high school team during those contact days? And so long as involve- ment is voluntary and available to any interested students, you could work with another school. My high school team is going to a team camp this summer. Can the school provide transportation? If the camp is included in your five 'unrestricted contact days,' yes. If not a part of those contact days, no. Our football booster group would like to sponsor a bus to transport players to a football camp. If within your allowed contact days, yes. If not within the allowed contact days the students would need to buy a ticket. I am the head basketball coach at X. This summer, one of our volunteer coaches is thinking about holding a basketball camp for grades in his hometown of Y. He asked if I wanted to help out. The camp would be open to all of the surrounding schools. There are a couple dimensions to your question that should be addressed and clarified. First, "JV and varsity coaches are allowed to have contact with students until they actually enter 9th grade. Rules At A Glance, Art. I Second, if your camp took place between the end of school and July 31, AND you counted the camp as part of your five unrestricted contact days, you could coach your own players. If NOT part of your unrestricted days, neither you or the volunteer could have coaching contact with players you will coach next season. You can find a volume of this on our website: We have about 30 kids going for a four-day camp. This is not part of our schools approved contact days. The boosters felt this would help solve logistics for a lot of parents having to transport kids. As described answer would be "No. Logistics could be accommo- dated by having students cover their own cost for the bus transportation.. Due to the weather it was postponed until March Since the HS softball season has already begun can our players still attend the camp? Yes - and the school could even cover the costs - and your school's coaches could have contact, and school could transport, since it's in-season. ROE Art. Once the softball season begins on March 12 can our coaches and players be used to run a free softball camp for 5th through 8th graders? Coaches would instruct with the players helping with various drills. This could be possible and accomplished within the rules - but would need to find a non-school sponsor. The local youth baseball program is planning a camp for 5th through 12th graders spring training. They are planning to use the high school gyms. As the varsity coach, can I work this camp? Are there any other things at I should be aware of? You're going about it the proper way. As you will see in Article I of the Rules At A Glance "JV and varsity coaches are able to have contact with students until they actually enter 9th grade. However, during the school year, you are not able to have any coaching contact with stu- dents who are already in 9thth grade - except during the actual school season Mar. Two scenarios regarding money for kids who can't afford camps. The local tribal council wanting to give money for camps to tribal member athletes open to any tribal member. Character Ed. Would either of these be allowed? What if money was given to family and parent wrote the check? Not allowed. There is always the peril - when something comes to light later on and is painted in most evil of descriptions - that what seemed to be 'creative' compliance' is actually considered to be circumvention and not compliance at all. This sort of tidbit usually creeps up the 'morning of the tournament contest', unfortunately. Two, more legitimate solutions: If a student can't afford the camp, find them a legitimate job and pay them.. As described, an amateur status violation; career ending. Acceptable alternative: Donate what's needed to the school. School then owns and issues. Our football coach is taking his freshmen son to a Jeff Trickey camp. Can he transport other kids that are going? Not if HS kids. See Rules at a Glance, Art. I have a question regarding summer volleyball camps. I would like to have an outside organization conduct the camp this summer for my girls. We are not the most affluent of towns and money is short for most of my players. Having a camp run here of this nature would get a bit expensive for the majority of my players. I was approached by a member of our booster club with an offer to donate some money towards the camp to offset the cost for the athletes attending. The camp is open to all girls in our school so it would be a gender specific camp. Is this a permissible donation that would not violate any rules. The money that they would donate would go directly to the camp coaches and then the cost for the athletes would be figured out after that depending on the number attending. Please advise on this situation and ask any questions you may have of me as soon as you can. As described, this would not be a problem. Each student still covers their own costs of the camp, what ever they turn out to be. Be certain it is the same cost for all who attend. As the varsity coach can I work this camp? I get a lot of questions about this. However, during the school year, you are not able to have any coaching contact with students who are already in 9thth grade - except during the actual school season Mar. I have a question concerning open gyms. Is it OK for a soccer team to gather players for open gym prior to the regular season and have "captains practices" during the open gym? My understanding is that the coaches are only supervising, but the team captains for the upcoming season are running their teammates through drills and activities? Is it acceptable to have players running practices at open gyms if the coaches are only supervising? Captain's practices are permitted in the summer; not during the school year. Please see II-A and D of attached. Also See: A X baseball club has been formed and our head baseball coach wants to conduct two to three clinics for students in grades during the winter sports season. These clinics would be conducted by members of the X high school baseball coaching staff. No high school athletes will be involved in coaching these students. Is there any problem with our coaches conducting this clinic? The end result of this could be achieved within existing Bylaws — however, it may not be a 'school spon- sored' event. Bylaws Article II p. Not during school year. Our boys soccer coach has asked if a clinic can be conducted by a professional soccer player the week of Aug. Am I correct in telling our coaches they can't be a part of the clinic? Can our coach set up the camp? Registration, facility usage, etc A.: Native English speakers, despite repeated attempts to convert them, still overwhelmingly favor French Open. But it is also a cultural divide: Europeans, with the exception of the British, strongly favor Roland Garros. So do South Americans, whose players have been major factors here through the years. French Open officials have long hoped that China — a late arrival to tennis fandom — would follow their lead. But they are increasingly bowing to the obvious. The identity issue was once considered an identity crisis by French Federation officials, who, at different stages of the s and s, aggressively encouraged the print and electronic media covering the tournament to use Roland Garros and only Roland Garros. We have Internet, Facebook. But actions, for the moment, speak louder than diplomacy, and the tournament is continuing to emphasize Roland Garros on multiple fronts. The official tournament Web site frenchopen. What exists now is rolandgarros. He said frenchopen. Nonetheless, a few key strokes shows who is winning the numbers game. But if English trumps French on the Internet, there are still small victories. It was a bit of a mess. The rub is that Roland Garros, the French fighter pilot for whom the stadium is named, was not much interested in playing or watching tennis. He was a rugby player, one who was killed when his plane was shot down in near the end of World War I. Friends later requested that the tennis stadium be named for him when it was built to stage the Davis Cup final between the United States and France. The French Open did not become open — accessible to professionals — until Until then it was known in English as the French Championships, which is much closer to its formal French name: Les Internationaux de France de Tennis..

Certainly, advise the student to not sign any contract with an agent or professional sport team until they're done with school sports. If a high school player plays baseball for an amateur baseball team in the summer, and the team he plays for receives prize money for playing in a tournament, does this take away the player's amateur status?

He is the only player of high school age and does not directly receive the money. There are a number of HS here golfers, e.

The student can compete - but just for competition's sake. The student and parents might wish to take some added measures to educate and create awareness that the student is an amateur and may not accept, receive or direct to another, cash or merchandise awards.

If a high school athlete were Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning such an award, would that jeopardize their WIAA eligibility?

Obviously, since your event is held Aug. Is there any issue with one of our high school junior ball players getting paid to work a basketball camp that we host for kids in Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning school and middle school? Couple of questions for you: Is there anything that would prohibit us from doing that considering that we are only a private school? I was unable to locate one on the website. If not, what is the process?

With respect to interstate competition; there is no form. High Handbook, Bylaw Art. II, Sect. Will simplify and summarize: Does this event require NFHS sanctions? If so, has the event received sanctioning? Are participating schools high schools? Are all schools members of their state association? In this case, with only four schools involved, disregard the first two points — the event would NOT require sanctioning.

Also, include the dates the event will be held. If a softball team plays out-of-state non-bordering state and plays two games in two days is this in violation of 6f of the softball spring season regulations? Would we consider this an event rather than two competitions? No, this spanked Restrained slut not violate season regulations if it was your school's only out-of-state event.

I am getting the odd request for donations for raffles, silent auctions, etc. Is this a violation? I would like clarification. Kids signing a t-shirt. It's names on a t-shirt. Violates amateur status provisions. Career ending. High Handbook, p. IV, Section B. To paraphrase; a student can be employed - but not self-employed in sport skills instruction. We have two junior high volleyball coaching positions in the district.

The only interest is from a junior volleyball player and a graduating senior player. Or for the graduating senior if she is paid as well? A student can be employed.

Can a student-athlete receive cash for participation in a bowling tournament? I have read through the amateur status section and am still unclear as it says they may not accept any cash or merchandise for achievement in athletics.

In a word, "yes". Thus — since the Association does not presently sponsor interscholastic bowling amateur status restrictions do not apply.

Same as we do not sponsor lumberjack events, bass fishing, snowmobiling, motocross, bmx or rodeo, e.

They have a picture of a football player with a WIAA high school jersey with a number in the commercial. This individual is actually a university student non-athlete, non-paid actor. Answer is no. Whether paid or unpaid - A college student has no high school eligibility. More info is not a full-time student at a member school and subsequently, is not subject to WIAA rules of eligibility.

You were wise to use an actor — we are happy for that — but I am confused and question only the timing of seeking clarification as evidently the commercials have already been aired?

A parent attended our WIAA eligibility presentation a few weeks back. His son is interested in participating in video game tournaments. Tournaments are large and small, individual and team with varying cash and material prizes. I am not sure this is considered a sport or even falls under WIAA rules.

He has the potential to be sponsored by various companies as he progresses. He is working on local and national sponsorship right now. Or is it like modeling or working a job.

Are there restrictions on his competition? What prizes can he accept and maintain his WIAA eligibility? This same interpretation Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning provided and applicable when asked about bowling, motocross, BMX, snowmobile racing, https://songspk.fit/pillow/article-1596.php olympics, rodeo and bass pro, etc.

The amateur status rule would be enforced in an event such as an iron man triathlon! We do sponsor swim and running competition. I have a young lady from our school who qualified as a Wendy' s Heisman Candidate from our school. She did not receive state level recognition. Must be returned — if student is intending to participate in Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning athletics now or in the future.

If not returned, student will be ineligible for the remainder of her HS career. Advise student to bring to you — you return, along with note and request response from Wendy's confirming they've received returned prize. Is it acceptable for several students to accept monetary support from local businesses to pay some of or all of the costs associated with a club sport club soccer during the off-season?

Or does this threaten their amateur status? They are wondering if local businesses or individuals can assist in paying some of or all of this fee. Does this threaten their amateur status? Simple answer is no, not automatically a violation. This has unsavory potentials; e.

Do you really wish to promote local business being hit yet again for personal interests of this kind? Help get kids a job. But the essence remains, 'no, not a violation out of hand.

On page 34 of the Senior High Handbook Article IV, Section I of the rules of eligibility it lists those items Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning are permitted and those which are prohibited. One of the items that is prohibited is "balls". So that I can clarify this to my committee members, is there a distinction between "balls" and "game balls" or is this a typo? Made to team for "tonight's victory," sometimes signed by all team mates and coaches.

Game balls awarded in this manner, are seen the same as trophy only more special. But nonetheless - a 'symbolic' award when given in this manner. Hitting closest to the pin or longest drive, I won a summer long supply of golf balls. Again, nothing symbolic in this. For making the winning basket, the local dealer gave me a brand new basketball of my own, just to shoot around with.

Someone wants to buy basketball shoes for our three here teams. Is this legal?

Porno amirican Watch Granny anastasia sands Video jr nude. We would like to highlight two area high school athletes. There will obviously be no compensation, just an interview and photos. Do you foresee any problems or violations? Articles published by news gathering publications have been acceptable by our member's rules. Your concerns may revolve around amateur status. Athletes may not appear in ads promoting a publication, product, or service whether they receive compensation or not. I own a local running store, and we are going to be doing a team building event for the store at a fun run on February 13, I have two students athletes that work for me, and I don't want it to affect their track eligibility. They both own jerseys with our store name on them already, so they will not be receiving any prizes or benefit from running on the team. Please let me know if they can run on the store team for this event without making them ineligible for the track season. The students may run since it will be during the off season for both cross country and track. They may compete on the team, but cannot receive any benefits other than a trophy, etc. They could wear the t-shirts, but you would want to refrain from using any photos with them in any advertising. Can a club volleyball organization, not associated with the school, give a scholarship to a 9th grade student to pay her fees for the club? The club wanted to ask to make sure that if they scholarship her fees, that she does not lose amateur status. So long as any student who wants to have fees paid for the opportunity can also get reimbursed. Athletes may only have reimbursement for actual and necessary costs associated with transportation, food, lodging and entry fees paid in connection with playing a contest. This opportunity may not be a "benefit" based on performance, e. My varsity girls basketball team has asked if it is legal for a private party to purchase pink shoes for them to wear in a game for cancer fundraiser. My response is that if the private party wants to purchase them for any girl in our school who would be interested in them it would be ok. Just for the varsity girls basketball team would not be allowed. Am I correct? Then they said what if the private party donated the money to the basketball booster club and the club purchased the shoes for the team? My response was that I would not allow it because I viewed it as a way of skirting the rule. Am I correct there as well? You are correct. If the private group the booster club is not considered school wanted to purchase the shoes and gift them to the school, the school could issue them as part of the uniform. At the end of the season, the school could sell them to the players for a reasonable not outrageous price or the school should keep them. We are having a conference showcase on January All conference girls teams will play that day. I was going to have a couple of players from the corresponding boys teams compete in a 3 pt. Is that ok? As you have described the contest, this would not meet our membership rules. Our Rules of Eligibility page 37 of the WIAA Handbook state a student becomes ineligible in a sport for the remainder of the season for competing in nonschool game, meet, or contest in the same sport during the season of practice or competition established by the school ROE, VIA. In addition, our membership rules of amateur status state: A student may not receive such merchandise items as shirts, jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts, jerseys, warm-ups, equipment, balls, duffel bags, backpacks, watches, rings, billfolds, coupons, gift certificates, e. Question on awards for representatives for our school for Wendy's High School Heisman. I believe every school that has students fill out the forms receives one boys winner and one girls winner. Article IV, Section 1, B. Just wondering if I am taking this too literally. A student could participate in the contest — but is not able to accept or direct to school or any other person or place, the various cash awards which are mentioned. My guess is no as this would essentially be the same as the student athlete accepting the cash award. The answer to your question is that a student athlete may NOT direct to another, reimbursement or award in any form a salary, b cash, merchandise of any kind or amount or d share of game or season proceeds, for achievement in athletics. Some additional detail for random draw based contests: Thus, you must always see the person whose name is drawn is the person that "performs" the skill. This year, our team wore a small helmet sticker on the back of our helmets honoring a classmate of our seniors who had passed away in elementary school. In honor of that, the mother of the former classmate we had honored approached me about the possibility of her purchasing from our school the jerseys of our seniors, who were the classmates of her late son. She wanted to give them as a gift their home game jerseys that they had worn this year. I was wondering if this was acceptable. Would she have to wait and give it to them after they graduated from high school? She would like to give them to them for Christmas. I didn't want to do anything to hurt their eligibility. Our membership rules pertaining to amateur status allow students to purchase uniforms from schools according to the procedures in place by the administration and board of education. If your school has a practice of allowing anyone and everyone the opportunity to purchase used uniforms, then the situation as you describe it may be done. If your school does not have a practice in place of allowing anyone and everyone the opportunity to purchase used uniforms, I suggest that you go to your administration and board of education to establish such a program in order to satisfy the amateur status rule. As far as a team goes, however, can a sport teams' fund-raised money be used to supplement all players purchase of something like polo shirts or warm-ups? Reimbursement may only be for transportation, lodging, and food for competition from an outside group or school. A t-shirt is allowed, but polo shirts or warm ups are not. The owner of a pizza parlor has shown interested in making a donation to the program in return for advertising in the form of a half-court shot contest. For each home game, we would randomly select one fan in attendance and give them a chance at the "X half court super shot" or something similar. Anyone who makes the shot wins a gift certificate to the restaurant, with the certificate being provided by the pizza parlor. If they have a banner, I would offer to place that in the gym, and a few announcements would be made during the game to plug the contest and the pizza parlor. Before I return the call and start talking about anything substantial like donation size, I want to make sure I have the green light here. As described — this is OK provided everyone has the opportunity through random draw. If everyone who buys a ticket gets the opportunity: XI, Rules of Eligibility Art. When looking at random draws: Be sure your number is broad and not skewed 'by just the JV players sitting in the bleacher's when lucky ticket's drawn' Opportunity is then no longer, random. This may only be done during regular season games and not WIAA tournament games. Is it a violation for a booster club to pay for a Tri-State All-Star game fee out-of-season for a senior athlete? A student may be reimbursed actual and necessary costs associated with competing. This may include transportation, food, lodging, and entry fees. I have a niece that races go-carts in the summer and receives trophies, ribbons, etc. She also receives a payout at the end of the season. She is a freshman this year, and I am wondering if this will affect her amateur status. Will she be able to participate in school athletics? Thus — since the Association does not presently sponsor interscholastic go-carting, amateur status restrictions do not apply. Same as we do not sponsor lumberjack events, bass fishing, snowmobiling, motocross, BMX or rodeo, e. On the other hand however - even though student plays school football, basketball and baseball — and then while golfing with dad or buddy in summer event hits closest to the pin and wins a sleeve of balls, or sandwich at the club house, or a new driver, e. I am the site director for a hockey training facility. We are looking to sponsor a player of the week for one of the Web sites that covers hockey and already awards a player of the week. I was hoping that you could verify that this is not a violation of any rules and we will not get any players into trouble by sponsoring the player of the week. I was also wondering if it would be legal for us to give a free team or individual training session to each player that is honored with the player of the week award? Sponsors can be used for a player of the week if done properly. We would be happy to review your plan to ensure no violations to amateur status for the athletes. As for an award or benefit, athletes may not receive discounts for merchandise or services unless offered to ALL students. Please refer to our rules on our Web site. Is there a way that a club can legally provide financial assistance to a family of an athlete who can not afford the full club program? If a club wishes to reimburse, they may do so provided: ANY student who wants to have fees paid for the opportunity can also get reimbursed. This opportunity may not be a "benefit" based on performance,e. Athletes may be reimbursed actual and necessary costs associated with competition. I am the boys basketball coach at a member school. We are playing in a holiday tournament over Christmas break this year and are thinking about staying overnight in a hotel. I was wondering if it would be legal for our booster club to help pay some of the cost of the hotels or if the school would have to pick up the entire bill. I just want to make sure that we handle this correctly so we're not violating any rules. This can get done — in either of a couple ways. Both "work" within our member's rules. Since our Bylaws and Amateur status rules provide that "costs associated with competition" can be reimbursed, the boosters could either pay the hotel bill directly or they could "gift the school" the necessary amount and the school could cut the check. There might even be some tax exempt benefit to the second way. But either way will work within the rules. Our volleyball team would like to go see another team play as a team. Can our coach pay for them to get into the game? Can they use money they raised though fundraisers? Or do they each have to pay their own way into the game? As a form of entertainment, this is acceptable. It is viewed as "group entertainment" and permitted by the Bylaws and Rules of Eligibility. In addition, the payment can be from any source provided it is offered to everyone. Wanted to clear with you any potential conflict we could avoid with Web site video we are planning to shoot in September for our clinic. We are doing a 60 second video, and some 30 second clips of our clinic to describe who we are and what we do. We will be getting consents of any minors see attached form and they will not receive any type of financial reimbursement or remuneration. In addition, they will not have on any team logo gear. Is there anything else they or we should or would need to be cautious of as the last thing we would ever want to do is risk or even question ANY eligibility? Thanks for checking in advance. Being paid is only a portion of the member's provision. It also talks about "being identified as an athlete". There are three ways most common in considering a student having been identified — by text or spoken word, by apparel and by props. Apparel does not necessarily need to be just the school's uniform to convey the student is an athlete. Best advice, best practice is to use young adults — recent graduates — who have no high school eligibility remaining. Another best practice recommendation is to simply use actors — students who are not athletes at all — then you have far greater liberties. When I say it's best practice, it's because of our many experiences where one promotion stimulates another in a neighboring business and that business owner does not take the precautions you have contemplated, does not contact us as you have — and does harm to another member's students. Since we try to help all of our members we must maintain that awareness of the connection of all that goes on. If you would like us to preview your idea before you launch it we will be happy to do so. Can a business put a high school team logo s in their ads in support of their local team s? With permission of the school due to licensing issues, you may do so. When athletes are involved, the rules are more strict. We own a hockey pro shop and would like to give a 10 percent discount to all high school hockey players in the area. Player comes in to purchase a piece of equipment and they say they are on the ABC team, and we make sure they are on the roster that we received from their coach and then we give them the 10 percent. Is this okay to do? Our membership rules require the athletes who participate in WIAA athletics be amateur athletes. In the situation which you stated, would be a violation of our rules. This includes but is not limited to: I have a couple returning starters who will be seniors that would like their jersey from last year to take senior pictures that are scheduled before the start of try-outs. Is this legal per WIAA? As long as your school allows uniforms to be issued in the summertime and your athletes comply with the amateur status rules, this would not be a problem. There are times when photographers may wish to display pictures of students in athletic wear in their studio, etc. The students should not receive any cash or merchandise in the form of discounts in the cost of the picture, waiver of sitting fees, free wallet-size photos, and similar inducements if identified as an athlete or selected because of being an athlete. The athlete may not provide an endorsement in any promotional event for the photographer. Below you will find the text of an offer extended to our school that would use some of our athletes in a commercial. Would this be a problem regarding amateur status? It is a newer product on the frozen pizza market. We are putting together a T. I would like the opportunity to talk with you about the chance of using some of your players in the commercial. In turn, I would donate some food for fund raising for the walking the path drive. We have the thought of running a football theme commercial as well as having weekly drawings for pep rallies at local high schools. If you could let me know if this is of interest to you I would like to sit down and work out the details and schedule for taping. This is absolutely a problem. A violation of the amateur status would be career ending. Our radio stations are planning to create an Athlete of the Week award presented to a senior student beginning this fall and we would like to partner with a business in presenting a scholarship to an Athlete of the Year selected from all the weekly winners at the end of the school year. Is there any problem with this proposal? Our member's amateur status provisions are outline in Art. To begin, WIAA rules do not prevent a student from receiving a college scholarship. We recommend the funds be paid directly to the student's school at the start of their second semester of college; but what you decide to do for a senior who has graduated - is really up to you. One of the most common perils we encounter in some promotions is the student "appearing" to be endorsing a business, service, product or plan. This often happens unintentionally. If we receive copies of the piece, we are also glad to work with businesses to try to help avoid any negatives from arising from what you are intending to be a good thing. Our local recreation department is starting a men's softball league this summer and the director contacted me with a question. He was wondering if high school athletes are allowed to participate? There will be a cash payout to the winning team, but nothing to individuals. Student athletes could enter the league and play. They may not, however, accept, receive or direct to another cash or merchandise awards. My question is this: I have some track t-shirts that I received at no cost. I thought of giving them away to track athletes, one at a time per week. No Problem. Both in the Bylaws, Art. Where do students stand regarding the Wendy's Heisman award recognizing athletic, academic and citizenship and "amateur status? Students are judged based on their academic achievements, community service involvement, and athletic accomplishments. Up until last year, schools identified a male and female nominee, much like we do with the WIAA scholar athlete. Last year, Wendy's changed the nomination process to allow any student to "nominate themselves" online. Is it acceptable for us to take photos of physicians rendering care to student athletes and then displaying such photos in our clinic office as artwork? I understand we would need to get a photo consent from the minor athlete's parent, but I need to ensure we would not violate WIAA regulations. What you are proposing could hold the potential for a student to lose their high school eligibility for the balance of their school career. There is one strategy by which you could accomplish this promotion yet not adversely affect the students you photographed — if you developed a "calendar file" of photos and always used this spring's graduates in next year's promotions. I am the head boy's soccer coach at a member high school. I have some 8th graders coming up next year who are Hmong and are said to be good players. I don't know yet if they play in Hmong leagues, but my concern is if they plan on playing in any Hmong soccer tournaments, which as far as I can tell, all offer cash prizes to the winners. It is my impression that under Article IVB, there is no way they can participate in such a tournament without permanently forfeiting their amateur status. Is there any circumstance where they could? The rule simply provides that a WIAA student athlete may not "accept, receive or direct to another any cash or merchandise award. In addition to the amateur status, be sure to talk with your students about the nonschool competition rules. As part of a promotional brochure we have put together for a local business, we have included a picture of one of our employees playing "soft toss. He was not paid any money for the use of the picture. Have we violated any WIAA rules? Sight unseen difficult to say with certainty - but potentially, yes. If student is an undergraduate and has hopes of playing any more WIAA sports during this school year - Do not use this photo until you have brought it past the school's AD. An athlete can be identified as an athlete — by text, by apparel, by props. An amateur status violation is career ending for a high school student. Lastly, you should always consult with the local athletic director on matters that could affect school sport eligibility. Our basketball club is interested in sponsoring an all-star game for players in our conference. The game would only involve seniors that have finished playing their high school basketball career. If they want to play the game sometime after the State Tournament, is there a deadline as to when they can play the game during the school year? I believe seniors are OK to play even if they are spring sport athletes, correct? They also gave me a copy of a "Q and A" from sometime past concerning all-star games. The Q and A references Art. IV, a question concerning this article is the following: Can a high school coach only coach a team if none of the players on either team are out for a spring sport? This is very clear from the Bylaws Art. IV which stems from our members fundamental opposition to all-star events; which they had viewed as exploitive of students. There is not a deadline for seniors to participate in the game as you have proposed. I've got a couple questions that are somewhat similar. They've requested pictures of our team playing there so that they can put them on their field website. Is this OK? My impression so far is that they want to have a photo section that shows various pictures of the many teams that use the field. Not sure if they are selling advertising on this site to outside businesses. Would that be a factor in determining acceptability? Is it OK to put pictures of our athletes on such a card? What's on the site, how the photos are used is essential to know and see before being able to say. Selling advertising is only one of the concerns in this type of idea. Can a booster club at a school help pay a fee that an athlete has to pay to be on a club volleyball team? To begin, a player of the week, team of the week, e. The recognition may be afforded without peril. But school administration and coaches must have oversight. In the case I referred to at WADA, an area TV station and an area pizza vendor - under the guise of selecting a "team of the week" picked several area HS's over the course of the fall season and when the team was notified they were team of the week and would receive a pizza dinner for the team which can be allowed — Bylaws Art. XI, Sect 2A. The pizza arrived but so did a video camera which was given to the students. The students were asked to shoot several minutes of video which was then placed on the internet. What appeared on the internet was seen only as an advertisement for the pizza co. With some education of students, oversight by coaches and AD's and the business promotions staff a lot of distress and a year of probation could have been avoided. A local restaurant has offered to feed our football team free of charge this Wednesday. I looked at the Handbook to make sure this was not an amateur status violation and was not sure after reading it over a few times. Could you please clarify? We have some kids that are involved in wrestling and basketball. The last thing I want to do is jeopardize those seasons. So long as it's voluntary, not attached to some other "promotion" and is available to any on the team interested in attending - you can allow this. See Sr. High Handbook, Art. XI, Sect, 2A p. Her mother would like to solicit sponsors to help defray the costs of these trips. Does that endanger the runner, a junior, of her amateur status? On something like this I recommend caution. A student can be reimbursed actual and necessary costs associated with competition. That might be achieved without peril through solicitation. See Rules At A Glance: We have a group that would like to run some halftime contests where gift certificates could be awarded. Are there any restrictions outlined by the WIAA? Does the WIAA have any statements regarding advertising at games? Halftime contests is a broad description. They can take on many forms. Some may be specific skill of sport performance, others like an egg or water balloon toss - having nothing to do with skill of sport performance. Depending on how a student is provided access to the opportunity - whether by random draw, or by simply purchase a ticket and everyone gets a chance to play, as well as what a student will be doing in the contest will determine what a student athlete might be allowed to receive for winning. Of course for adults and non- students, WIAA rules and amateur status provisions have no bearing. In addition, what you choose to do during your own school's regular season will otherwise be largely up to you. Here is some discussion about random draw based contests for some additional detail. You are always most wise to take a "wide berth" around amateur status concerns. With respect to the "lucky ticket holder" and random draws - the rules say an athlete may not receive benefit as a result of "being an athlete" I have a question regarding the distribution of t-shirts and sweatshirts at a basketball league in which non-basketball players play in the winter. The league consists of teams from three communities. None of these players play basketball at the high school, but most participate in other WIAA sponsored sports. They simply join this winter league and play at church gyms within the communities. Is it acceptable for the winning team and second place team in the tournament at the end of the season to receive a sweatshirt first place and a t-shirt second place? I have read the "Amateur Status" requirements and stipulations, but am still uncertain. T-shirts have been identified by the members as acceptable for a student to receive. Sweatshirts have not been approved. See Bylaws, Art. XI, Sect. On the other hand, however, even though student plays school football, basketball and baseball — golfing with dad or buddy in summer event — hits closest to the pin and wins a sleeve of balls, or sandwich at the club house, or a new drive, e. We will be hosting a varsity volleyball tournament and may need to use JV players as line judges. My question is, is it allowable to pay them as we would an adult line judge? A student may be employed and you may compensate them. The only potential for assertion of inappropriateness comes when student is picked because they are the 'best' jv player s. Opportunity for the job should be available to any interested, and selected based on knowledge and ability to perform the work, not based on athletic abilities. We have a girl who is an incoming freshmen that participated in the Hershey track meet this summer and qualified for their national meet. She attended the meet, but her trip was paid for by Hershey. Is this a violation of amateur status? No, not a violation — provided the student did not accept or receive any other unacceptable awards. ROE, Art. IV Amateur Status provides in section B-1a. As students begin registering for school and sports, three questions have come up that we would like some feed back on. They do meet the criteria for free and reduced lunches. The questions are: We view this as costs associated with competition. The boosters should gift the school the necessary dollars that would meet this need. Some schools have this policy. Will this affect that student's amateur status? A local business wants to donate the t-shirts I intended to purchase for the year old summer baseball coach winning the Teen League State Tournament. Is there a violation there? The t-shirts would not mention the name of the business. Also, can a parent buy those same players a key chain celebrating their win of the same tournament? At present, a key chain is not. My daughter is going to be a senior this fall and she and two other HS girls have been asked to play on a co-ed slow pitch softball team that is going to be in a tournament in two weeks. They are the only players on the team that are still in high school. I have been told that they may play on this team as long as they DO NOT accept any prize money that may be given out at the end of the tournament even if the other members of the team accept the money. Is this correct? Essentially, yes. A student may not accept, receive or direct to another - cash or merchandise award. Would recommend you also discuss this with your school's AD. I am from a large city, and I am a senior in high school. I was emancipated from my parents and now I live on my own. However, life in the city is hard, and I decided that I am going to move to a small-town school. Before I actually do this, I just wanted to know if I would be able to play basketball in the new school if I make the team? Answer to your question is "no. We have a question regarding a job that my son was offered. He was given a position through the Park and Rec Dept. He plays on a varsity high school tennis team in the spring. Is there any conflict? Students can be employed in this manner — by rec depts. YMCA, country clubs, aquatic centers, etc. They just can not be self-employed in giving sport skills instruction. Our football team would like to take a picture during the first week of practice in the fall and make a poster of the picture. I know there is not a problem with this, but can they put advertisements on the posters to help pay for the cost of the posters? If they were to make a profit from the sale of posters, would this be a violation of the WIAA policies? It's a little difficult to say with certainty on this one — sight unseen. Fundamentally when you look at a poster — what's it conveying? So long as it's crystal clear that the local businesses are supporting team, school program — it's generally not been seen as a problem. If the posters are sold and proceeds placed in a booster or school account as a fund raising initiative — that has not presented amateur status concerns for the athletes. We have a few examples of posters on file that created problems for the athletes appearing in them. If you wish us to preview your poster in advance of it going to print — will do so gladly — if provided enough time. One of our baseball parents called me today with a question regarding them being contacted by a sports management firm. The letter to them indicated that their son may be considered for the baseball draft next week. There is absolutely no problem with a student and his parents speaking to a sports agent or firm - or a lawyer of their own choosing. Certainly, advise the student to not sign any contract with an agent or professional sport team until they're done with school sports. If a high school player plays baseball for an amateur baseball team in the summer, and the team he plays for receives prize money for playing in a tournament, does this take away the player's amateur status? He is the only player of high school age and does not directly receive the money. There are a number of HS student golfers, e. The student can compete - but just for competition's sake. The student and parents might wish to take some added measures to educate and create awareness that the student is an amateur and may not accept, receive or direct to another, cash or merchandise awards. If a high school athlete were given such an award, would that jeopardize their WIAA eligibility? Obviously, since your event is held Aug. Is there any issue with one of our high school junior ball players getting paid to work a basketball camp that we host for kids in grade school and middle school? Couple of questions for you: Is there anything that would prohibit us from doing that considering that we are only a private school? I was unable to locate one on the website. If not, what is the process? With respect to interstate competition; there is no form. High Handbook, Bylaw Art. II, Sect. Will simplify and summarize: Does this event require NFHS sanctions? If so, has the event received sanctioning? Are participating schools high schools? Are all schools members of their state association? In this case, with only four schools involved, disregard the first two points — the event would NOT require sanctioning. Also, include the dates the event will be held. If a softball team plays out-of-state non-bordering state and plays two games in two days is this in violation of 6f of the softball spring season regulations? Would we consider this an event rather than two competitions? No, this would not violate season regulations if it was your school's only out-of-state event. I am getting the odd request for donations for raffles, silent auctions, etc. Is this a violation? I would like clarification. Kids signing a t-shirt. It's names on a t-shirt. Violates amateur status provisions. Career ending. High Handbook, p. IV, Section B. To paraphrase; a student can be employed - but not self-employed in sport skills instruction. We have two junior high volleyball coaching positions in the district. The only interest is from a junior volleyball player and a graduating senior player. Or for the graduating senior if she is paid as well? A student can be employed. Can a student-athlete receive cash for participation in a bowling tournament? I have read through the amateur status section and am still unclear as it says they may not accept any cash or merchandise for achievement in athletics. In a word, "yes". Thus — since the Association does not presently sponsor interscholastic bowling amateur status restrictions do not apply. Same as we do not sponsor lumberjack events, bass fishing, snowmobiling, motocross, bmx or rodeo, e. On the other hand however - Even though student plays school football, basketball and baseball — and then while golfing with dad or buddy in summer event hits closest to the pin and wins a sleeve of balls, or sandwich at the club house, or a new driver, e. Our marketing department has just released some new commercials for our health care facility. They have a picture of a football player with a WIAA high school jersey with a number in the commercial. This individual is actually a university student non-athlete, non-paid actor. Answer is no. Whether paid or unpaid - A college student has no high school eligibility. He is not a full-time student at a member school and subsequently, is not subject to WIAA rules of eligibility. You were wise to use an actor — we are happy for that — but I am confused and question only the timing of seeking clarification as evidently the commercials have already been aired? A parent attended our WIAA eligibility presentation a few weeks back. His son is interested in participating in video game tournaments. Tournaments are large and small, individual and team with varying cash and material prizes. I am not sure this is considered a sport or even falls under WIAA rules. He has the potential to be sponsored by various companies as he progresses. He is working on local and national sponsorship right now. Or is it like modeling or working a job. Are there restrictions on his competition? What prizes can he accept and maintain his WIAA eligibility? This same interpretation is provided and applicable when asked about bowling, motocross, BMX, snowmobile racing, lumberjack olympics, rodeo and bass pro, etc. The amateur status rule would be enforced in an event such as an iron man triathlon! We do sponsor swim and running competition. I have a young lady from our school who qualified as a Wendy' s Heisman Candidate from our school. She did not receive state level recognition. Must be returned — if student is intending to participate in interscholastic athletics now or in the future. If not returned, student will be ineligible for the remainder of her HS career. Advise student to bring to you — you return, along with note and request response from Wendy's confirming they've received returned prize. Is it acceptable for several students to accept monetary support from local businesses to pay some of or all of the costs associated with a club sport club soccer during the off-season? Or does this threaten their amateur status? They are wondering if local businesses or individuals can assist in paying some of or all of this fee. Does this threaten their amateur status? Simple answer is no, not automatically a violation. This has unsavory potentials; e. Do you really wish to promote local business being hit yet again for personal interests of this kind? Help get kids a job. But the essence remains, 'no, not a violation out of hand. On page 34 of the Senior High Handbook Article IV, Section I of the rules of eligibility it lists those items that are permitted and those which are prohibited. One of the items that is prohibited is "balls". So that I can clarify this to my committee members, is there a distinction between "balls" and "game balls" or is this a typo? Made to team for "tonight's victory," sometimes signed by all team mates and coaches. Game balls awarded in this manner, are seen the same as trophy only more special. But nonetheless - a 'symbolic' award when given in this manner. Hitting closest to the pin or longest drive, I won a summer long supply of golf balls. Again, nothing symbolic in this. For making the winning basket, the local dealer gave me a brand new basketball of my own, just to shoot around with. Someone wants to buy basketball shoes for our three boys teams. Is this legal? Red flags just went up when they told me. Shoes — just given to athletes - would be an amateur status violation. If the benefactor wished to 'gift' the school district and in turn you wished to issue shoes to your teams, you could do that. They then become school property issued just like shoulder pads and should be collected and reissued or collected and discarded following the season in accordance with school board policy. Also see Art. IV, Rules of Eligibility p. I would also recommend there be administrative discussion on the topic from a gender equity perspective — is there anyone who will provide the same for the girls? My 10th grade advisor is running a John Madden Play Station football tournament. Can he give cash away to athletes as a prize? We would not regard it as a "best practice" by any stretch, however. I have a question concerning shoe discounts for students and teams. Am I correct to assume that the following is allowable and not an amateur status violation: A vendor wishes to provide a team discount to players if so many pairs of shoes are purchased by a team. In this case the school buys the shoes, pays the vendor and collects the money from the players that make the team. Otherwise any discount from the vendor would have to be available to any student in the school population. I do not like this model — I prefer the model where every kid who goes out - gets the discount just for going out. Or better yet, every kid and teacher in school can show up in the cafeteria Thurs. In years past, schools used to provide basketball shoes to teams. As I understand the question — this is not that model. From that perspective then at least — the discount in the model IS performance based Would not advise could not support. We would like to recognize students that participate in three sports by giving them a t-shirt. The only requirement would be that they were out for three sports the previous year. Yes - no problem. Can students who receive free or reduced lunch have participation fees waived without risking eligibility? Yes — Amateur status provisions allow students to be "reimbursed" for costs directly associated with competition. We had a senior high school girl get a hole in one at our Booster Hockey Golf Outing. Can she accept the prize, a two-year lease of a car, or would that impact her high school eligibility this year? Answer's "no. Would end her high school career. I am a member of the largest running organization in Wisconsin with about members. Our organization already has a working relationship with many of the shoe stores in southeastern Wisconsin so I don't believe it would take much convincing to get their participation. The stores could collect the forms and "cash" them in through our organization. Am certainly open to other suggestions but I believe the heart of this program would need to be the coaches themselves because they would need to identify those in need and provide them with the necessary forms. There may be a way to achieve your interests and ends without peril to a student athlete. It is not the course you've initially identified. But an alternate path might deliver the results you hope to achieve, nonetheless. Always remember — these are the school's programs, not any one coaches. I received an email from a minor league baseball club. They are hosting a "Hometown Champions" night and are wondering if our athletes would participate. Athletes would be encouraged to wear their uniforms and school apparel to the game that night and would be announced on the field during pregame over the PA system. All individuals affiliated with our championship winning teams would receive a discounted two for one ticket deal. It appears to me that this would violate WIAA rules of eligibility, since the athletes would be receiving a discount based upon athletic achievement. It is the two for one promotion that prompts me to say 'NO can do" on this one as it is presently outlined. As per Bylaws p. XI, Section 2B: When the business uses the students with two for one promotions to try to get business in the door, students are not able to take part in that. Can the hospital donate the bottles to the school, and then the school distributes as they deem appropriate give to athletes only? Can the hospital donate the bottles to the booster club, who then donates to athletes? Or - 'every student who goes out for a sport' should receive a water bottle. Can we have player awards that are sponsored? For instance can we have a "Culvers Player of the Week? No gift or anything like that. Player of the game, the week, As you describe - there would be no peril for student. So long as when we look and see the business, product, service is percent 'endorsing' student, team, school I am an athletic trainer — at my facility we have a training program and would like to roll the program out at a reduced price to employees and their immediate family members. We are offering the program to all employees, so all students would be eligible for the same discount, whether an athlete or not. If I could get something in writing either supporting or denying this proposal, it would greatly help. At least not if is as straight forward as described; i. I have a potential donor that is interested in setting up a need based scholarship for students returning to our private high school, but they would like to base one of the criteria for awarding the scholarship on athletic participation during the previous year. My concern is that while we may be able to award a scholarship to a student coming into our school based on music or art or science interest, if we start to allow scholarships to be awarded based on interest in athletics, will that fall under the recruitment ruling? Your assessment and concerns are right on the mark. Financial aid that has anything to do with athletic interests, potential, ability or performance - would render the student ineligible for their entire HS career and place your school in a status of severe non-compliance. We have had experience in this area where zealous booster members have caused great distress for members on occasion. I would like to approach a local photographer to ask them to donate a complimentary photo for each of our honored student-athletes. Would we run into a problem giving each recipient a 5x7 photo? Can you approve this, or would it violate the amateur standing rule and the rule regarding gifts? We have a player that did not dress because of grades last nighty in our 1st tournament game. At mid term our code states they become eligible as soon as they correct the grade. At the end of the quarter or semester we follow the 1 week or 15 day scenario. Can't find this in the book and want to make sure we follow procedure - I believe they are ineligible for the remainder of the tournament. Please confirm. There are three types of rules: Keep in mind that athletes who are ineligible during the WIAA tournament for any reason may not appear in uniform, participate in warm-ups, and may not participate in the awards ceremony at the WIAA tournament p. In this question and situation, the athlete may return when they become academically eligible. Always apply your code as written. Just a quick question on 15 day ineligibility. I am sure I am right on this one, but I know the parent is going to be asking questions and I want to be prepared. A wrestler's 15 day ineligibility ends today because it is the 15th day. He is not eligible for regionals tomorrow because it is not a scheduled school day correct? His eligibility would resume on Monday. He becomes eligible on the 16th scheduled school day: Our district recently passed a policy that students be required to maintain a 2. The question that has been brought up is, what happens to the special ed students who try as they might, can't make this new GPA requirement. Is there anything that can be written in the IEP to allow them to participate in these activities and "outrank" the school policy? Some have said that if it's written in the IEP than it should be followed. But, this really doesn't relate to FAPE does it? I don't know if others have experience with this and if there has been any court cases that have set a precedence for something like this. I completely agree with the basic premise I read in your comments Your district may want to address the 2. It may be done either, individually, based on identified and specific needs in the IEP. It may be done as broad policy. Either way, it ought to be "spelled out" keep in mind that if you put a different standard then 2. We would NOT set aside the "no F" component. We would not accept failure for a student. As I recall, our expectations for waiving the gpa, included: We designed the model for weekly or bi-weekly feedback from teachers. It is a linguistic divide. French speakers call the tournament, not just the stadium in which it is played, Roland Garros. Native English speakers, despite repeated attempts to convert them, still overwhelmingly favor French Open. But it is also a cultural divide: Europeans, with the exception of the British, strongly favor Roland Garros. So do South Americans, whose players have been major factors here through the years. French Open officials have long hoped that China — a late arrival to tennis fandom — would follow their lead. But they are increasingly bowing to the obvious. The identity issue was once considered an identity crisis by French Federation officials, who, at different stages of the s and s, aggressively encouraged the print and electronic media covering the tournament to use Roland Garros and only Roland Garros. We have Internet, Facebook. But actions, for the moment, speak louder than diplomacy, and the tournament is continuing to emphasize Roland Garros on multiple fronts. The official tournament Web site frenchopen. What exists now is rolandgarros. He said frenchopen. Nonetheless, a few key strokes shows who is winning the numbers game. But if English trumps French on the Internet, there are still small victories. It was a bit of a mess. The rub is that Roland Garros, the French fighter pilot for whom the stadium is named, was not much interested in playing or watching tennis. He was a rugby player, one who was killed when his plane was shot down in near the end of World War I. Friends later requested that the tennis stadium be named for him when it was built to stage the Davis Cup final between the United States and France. The French Open did not become open — accessible to professionals — until .

Red flags just went up when they told me. Shoes — just given to athletes - would be an amateur status violation. If the benefactor wished to 'gift' the school district and in turn you wished to issue shoes to your teams, you could do that. They then become school property issued just like shoulder pads and should be collected and reissued or collected and discarded following the season in accordance with school board policy. Also see Art. IV, This web page of Eligibility p.

I would also recommend there be administrative discussion on the topic from a gender equity perspective — is there anyone who will provide the same for the girls? My 10th grade advisor is running a Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning Madden Play Station football tournament. Can he give cash away to athletes as a prize?

We would not regard it as a "best practice" by any stretch, however. I have a question concerning shoe discounts for students and teams. Am I correct to assume that the following is allowable and not an amateur status violation: A vendor wishes to provide a team discount to players if so many pairs of shoes are purchased by a team.

In this case the school buys the shoes, pays the vendor and collects the money from the source that make the team. Otherwise any discount from the vendor would have to be available to any student in the school population. I do not like this model — I prefer the model where every kid who goes out - gets the discount just for going out.

Or better yet, every kid and teacher in school can show up in the cafeteria Thurs. In years past, schools used to provide basketball shoes to teams. As I understand the question — this is Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning that model. From that perspective then at least — the discount in the model IS performance based Would not advise could not support.

We would like to recognize students that participate in three sports by giving them a t-shirt. The only requirement would be that they were out for three sports the previous year. Yes - no problem. Can students who receive free Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning reduced lunch have participation fees waived without risking eligibility?

Yes — Amateur status provisions allow students to be "reimbursed" for costs directly associated with competition. We had a senior high school girl get a hole in one at our Booster Hockey Golf Outing. Can she accept the prize, a two-year lease of a car, or would that impact her high school eligibility this year? Answer's "no. Would end her high school career. I am a member of the largest running organization in Wisconsin with about members.

Friend tube Watch Lesbian sleepover orgy Video Naked ncis. She also receives a payout at the end of the season. She is a freshman this year, and I am wondering if this will affect her amateur status. Will she be able to participate in school athletics? Thus — since the Association does not presently sponsor interscholastic go-carting, amateur status restrictions do not apply. Same as we do not sponsor lumberjack events, bass fishing, snowmobiling, motocross, BMX or rodeo, e. On the other hand however - even though student plays school football, basketball and baseball — and then while golfing with dad or buddy in summer event hits closest to the pin and wins a sleeve of balls, or sandwich at the club house, or a new driver, e. I am the site director for a hockey training facility. We are looking to sponsor a player of the week for one of the Web sites that covers hockey and already awards a player of the week. I was hoping that you could verify that this is not a violation of any rules and we will not get any players into trouble by sponsoring the player of the week. I was also wondering if it would be legal for us to give a free team or individual training session to each player that is honored with the player of the week award? Sponsors can be used for a player of the week if done properly. We would be happy to review your plan to ensure no violations to amateur status for the athletes. As for an award or benefit, athletes may not receive discounts for merchandise or services unless offered to ALL students. Please refer to our rules on our Web site. Is there a way that a club can legally provide financial assistance to a family of an athlete who can not afford the full club program? If a club wishes to reimburse, they may do so provided: ANY student who wants to have fees paid for the opportunity can also get reimbursed. This opportunity may not be a "benefit" based on performance,e. Athletes may be reimbursed actual and necessary costs associated with competition. I am the boys basketball coach at a member school. We are playing in a holiday tournament over Christmas break this year and are thinking about staying overnight in a hotel. I was wondering if it would be legal for our booster club to help pay some of the cost of the hotels or if the school would have to pick up the entire bill. I just want to make sure that we handle this correctly so we're not violating any rules. This can get done — in either of a couple ways. Both "work" within our member's rules. Since our Bylaws and Amateur status rules provide that "costs associated with competition" can be reimbursed, the boosters could either pay the hotel bill directly or they could "gift the school" the necessary amount and the school could cut the check. There might even be some tax exempt benefit to the second way. But either way will work within the rules. Our volleyball team would like to go see another team play as a team. Can our coach pay for them to get into the game? Can they use money they raised though fundraisers? Or do they each have to pay their own way into the game? As a form of entertainment, this is acceptable. It is viewed as "group entertainment" and permitted by the Bylaws and Rules of Eligibility. In addition, the payment can be from any source provided it is offered to everyone. Wanted to clear with you any potential conflict we could avoid with Web site video we are planning to shoot in September for our clinic. We are doing a 60 second video, and some 30 second clips of our clinic to describe who we are and what we do. We will be getting consents of any minors see attached form and they will not receive any type of financial reimbursement or remuneration. In addition, they will not have on any team logo gear. Is there anything else they or we should or would need to be cautious of as the last thing we would ever want to do is risk or even question ANY eligibility? Thanks for checking in advance. Being paid is only a portion of the member's provision. It also talks about "being identified as an athlete". There are three ways most common in considering a student having been identified — by text or spoken word, by apparel and by props. Apparel does not necessarily need to be just the school's uniform to convey the student is an athlete. Best advice, best practice is to use young adults — recent graduates — who have no high school eligibility remaining. Another best practice recommendation is to simply use actors — students who are not athletes at all — then you have far greater liberties. When I say it's best practice, it's because of our many experiences where one promotion stimulates another in a neighboring business and that business owner does not take the precautions you have contemplated, does not contact us as you have — and does harm to another member's students. Since we try to help all of our members we must maintain that awareness of the connection of all that goes on. If you would like us to preview your idea before you launch it we will be happy to do so. Can a business put a high school team logo s in their ads in support of their local team s? With permission of the school due to licensing issues, you may do so. When athletes are involved, the rules are more strict. We own a hockey pro shop and would like to give a 10 percent discount to all high school hockey players in the area. Player comes in to purchase a piece of equipment and they say they are on the ABC team, and we make sure they are on the roster that we received from their coach and then we give them the 10 percent. Is this okay to do? Our membership rules require the athletes who participate in WIAA athletics be amateur athletes. In the situation which you stated, would be a violation of our rules. This includes but is not limited to: I have a couple returning starters who will be seniors that would like their jersey from last year to take senior pictures that are scheduled before the start of try-outs. Is this legal per WIAA? As long as your school allows uniforms to be issued in the summertime and your athletes comply with the amateur status rules, this would not be a problem. There are times when photographers may wish to display pictures of students in athletic wear in their studio, etc. The students should not receive any cash or merchandise in the form of discounts in the cost of the picture, waiver of sitting fees, free wallet-size photos, and similar inducements if identified as an athlete or selected because of being an athlete. The athlete may not provide an endorsement in any promotional event for the photographer. Below you will find the text of an offer extended to our school that would use some of our athletes in a commercial. Would this be a problem regarding amateur status? It is a newer product on the frozen pizza market. We are putting together a T. I would like the opportunity to talk with you about the chance of using some of your players in the commercial. In turn, I would donate some food for fund raising for the walking the path drive. We have the thought of running a football theme commercial as well as having weekly drawings for pep rallies at local high schools. If you could let me know if this is of interest to you I would like to sit down and work out the details and schedule for taping. This is absolutely a problem. A violation of the amateur status would be career ending. Our radio stations are planning to create an Athlete of the Week award presented to a senior student beginning this fall and we would like to partner with a business in presenting a scholarship to an Athlete of the Year selected from all the weekly winners at the end of the school year. Is there any problem with this proposal? Our member's amateur status provisions are outline in Art. To begin, WIAA rules do not prevent a student from receiving a college scholarship. We recommend the funds be paid directly to the student's school at the start of their second semester of college; but what you decide to do for a senior who has graduated - is really up to you. One of the most common perils we encounter in some promotions is the student "appearing" to be endorsing a business, service, product or plan. This often happens unintentionally. If we receive copies of the piece, we are also glad to work with businesses to try to help avoid any negatives from arising from what you are intending to be a good thing. Our local recreation department is starting a men's softball league this summer and the director contacted me with a question. He was wondering if high school athletes are allowed to participate? There will be a cash payout to the winning team, but nothing to individuals. Student athletes could enter the league and play. They may not, however, accept, receive or direct to another cash or merchandise awards. My question is this: I have some track t-shirts that I received at no cost. I thought of giving them away to track athletes, one at a time per week. No Problem. Both in the Bylaws, Art. Where do students stand regarding the Wendy's Heisman award recognizing athletic, academic and citizenship and "amateur status? Students are judged based on their academic achievements, community service involvement, and athletic accomplishments. Up until last year, schools identified a male and female nominee, much like we do with the WIAA scholar athlete. Last year, Wendy's changed the nomination process to allow any student to "nominate themselves" online. Is it acceptable for us to take photos of physicians rendering care to student athletes and then displaying such photos in our clinic office as artwork? I understand we would need to get a photo consent from the minor athlete's parent, but I need to ensure we would not violate WIAA regulations. What you are proposing could hold the potential for a student to lose their high school eligibility for the balance of their school career. There is one strategy by which you could accomplish this promotion yet not adversely affect the students you photographed — if you developed a "calendar file" of photos and always used this spring's graduates in next year's promotions. I am the head boy's soccer coach at a member high school. I have some 8th graders coming up next year who are Hmong and are said to be good players. I don't know yet if they play in Hmong leagues, but my concern is if they plan on playing in any Hmong soccer tournaments, which as far as I can tell, all offer cash prizes to the winners. It is my impression that under Article IVB, there is no way they can participate in such a tournament without permanently forfeiting their amateur status. Is there any circumstance where they could? The rule simply provides that a WIAA student athlete may not "accept, receive or direct to another any cash or merchandise award. In addition to the amateur status, be sure to talk with your students about the nonschool competition rules. As part of a promotional brochure we have put together for a local business, we have included a picture of one of our employees playing "soft toss. He was not paid any money for the use of the picture. Have we violated any WIAA rules? Sight unseen difficult to say with certainty - but potentially, yes. If student is an undergraduate and has hopes of playing any more WIAA sports during this school year - Do not use this photo until you have brought it past the school's AD. An athlete can be identified as an athlete — by text, by apparel, by props. An amateur status violation is career ending for a high school student. Lastly, you should always consult with the local athletic director on matters that could affect school sport eligibility. Our basketball club is interested in sponsoring an all-star game for players in our conference. The game would only involve seniors that have finished playing their high school basketball career. If they want to play the game sometime after the State Tournament, is there a deadline as to when they can play the game during the school year? I believe seniors are OK to play even if they are spring sport athletes, correct? They also gave me a copy of a "Q and A" from sometime past concerning all-star games. The Q and A references Art. IV, a question concerning this article is the following: Can a high school coach only coach a team if none of the players on either team are out for a spring sport? This is very clear from the Bylaws Art. IV which stems from our members fundamental opposition to all-star events; which they had viewed as exploitive of students. There is not a deadline for seniors to participate in the game as you have proposed. I've got a couple questions that are somewhat similar. They've requested pictures of our team playing there so that they can put them on their field website. Is this OK? My impression so far is that they want to have a photo section that shows various pictures of the many teams that use the field. Not sure if they are selling advertising on this site to outside businesses. Would that be a factor in determining acceptability? Is it OK to put pictures of our athletes on such a card? What's on the site, how the photos are used is essential to know and see before being able to say. Selling advertising is only one of the concerns in this type of idea. Can a booster club at a school help pay a fee that an athlete has to pay to be on a club volleyball team? To begin, a player of the week, team of the week, e. The recognition may be afforded without peril. But school administration and coaches must have oversight. In the case I referred to at WADA, an area TV station and an area pizza vendor - under the guise of selecting a "team of the week" picked several area HS's over the course of the fall season and when the team was notified they were team of the week and would receive a pizza dinner for the team which can be allowed — Bylaws Art. XI, Sect 2A. The pizza arrived but so did a video camera which was given to the students. The students were asked to shoot several minutes of video which was then placed on the internet. What appeared on the internet was seen only as an advertisement for the pizza co. With some education of students, oversight by coaches and AD's and the business promotions staff a lot of distress and a year of probation could have been avoided. A local restaurant has offered to feed our football team free of charge this Wednesday. I looked at the Handbook to make sure this was not an amateur status violation and was not sure after reading it over a few times. Could you please clarify? We have some kids that are involved in wrestling and basketball. The last thing I want to do is jeopardize those seasons. So long as it's voluntary, not attached to some other "promotion" and is available to any on the team interested in attending - you can allow this. See Sr. High Handbook, Art. XI, Sect, 2A p. Her mother would like to solicit sponsors to help defray the costs of these trips. Does that endanger the runner, a junior, of her amateur status? On something like this I recommend caution. A student can be reimbursed actual and necessary costs associated with competition. That might be achieved without peril through solicitation. See Rules At A Glance: We have a group that would like to run some halftime contests where gift certificates could be awarded. Are there any restrictions outlined by the WIAA? Does the WIAA have any statements regarding advertising at games? Halftime contests is a broad description. They can take on many forms. Some may be specific skill of sport performance, others like an egg or water balloon toss - having nothing to do with skill of sport performance. Depending on how a student is provided access to the opportunity - whether by random draw, or by simply purchase a ticket and everyone gets a chance to play, as well as what a student will be doing in the contest will determine what a student athlete might be allowed to receive for winning. Of course for adults and non- students, WIAA rules and amateur status provisions have no bearing. In addition, what you choose to do during your own school's regular season will otherwise be largely up to you. Here is some discussion about random draw based contests for some additional detail. You are always most wise to take a "wide berth" around amateur status concerns. With respect to the "lucky ticket holder" and random draws - the rules say an athlete may not receive benefit as a result of "being an athlete" I have a question regarding the distribution of t-shirts and sweatshirts at a basketball league in which non-basketball players play in the winter. The league consists of teams from three communities. None of these players play basketball at the high school, but most participate in other WIAA sponsored sports. They simply join this winter league and play at church gyms within the communities. Is it acceptable for the winning team and second place team in the tournament at the end of the season to receive a sweatshirt first place and a t-shirt second place? I have read the "Amateur Status" requirements and stipulations, but am still uncertain. T-shirts have been identified by the members as acceptable for a student to receive. Sweatshirts have not been approved. See Bylaws, Art. XI, Sect. On the other hand, however, even though student plays school football, basketball and baseball — golfing with dad or buddy in summer event — hits closest to the pin and wins a sleeve of balls, or sandwich at the club house, or a new drive, e. We will be hosting a varsity volleyball tournament and may need to use JV players as line judges. My question is, is it allowable to pay them as we would an adult line judge? A student may be employed and you may compensate them. The only potential for assertion of inappropriateness comes when student is picked because they are the 'best' jv player s. Opportunity for the job should be available to any interested, and selected based on knowledge and ability to perform the work, not based on athletic abilities. We have a girl who is an incoming freshmen that participated in the Hershey track meet this summer and qualified for their national meet. She attended the meet, but her trip was paid for by Hershey. Is this a violation of amateur status? No, not a violation — provided the student did not accept or receive any other unacceptable awards. ROE, Art. IV Amateur Status provides in section B-1a. As students begin registering for school and sports, three questions have come up that we would like some feed back on. They do meet the criteria for free and reduced lunches. The questions are: We view this as costs associated with competition. The boosters should gift the school the necessary dollars that would meet this need. Some schools have this policy. Will this affect that student's amateur status? A local business wants to donate the t-shirts I intended to purchase for the year old summer baseball coach winning the Teen League State Tournament. Is there a violation there? The t-shirts would not mention the name of the business. Also, can a parent buy those same players a key chain celebrating their win of the same tournament? At present, a key chain is not. My daughter is going to be a senior this fall and she and two other HS girls have been asked to play on a co-ed slow pitch softball team that is going to be in a tournament in two weeks. They are the only players on the team that are still in high school. I have been told that they may play on this team as long as they DO NOT accept any prize money that may be given out at the end of the tournament even if the other members of the team accept the money. Is this correct? Essentially, yes. A student may not accept, receive or direct to another - cash or merchandise award. Would recommend you also discuss this with your school's AD. I am from a large city, and I am a senior in high school. I was emancipated from my parents and now I live on my own. However, life in the city is hard, and I decided that I am going to move to a small-town school. Before I actually do this, I just wanted to know if I would be able to play basketball in the new school if I make the team? Answer to your question is "no. We have a question regarding a job that my son was offered. He was given a position through the Park and Rec Dept. He plays on a varsity high school tennis team in the spring. Is there any conflict? Students can be employed in this manner — by rec depts. YMCA, country clubs, aquatic centers, etc. They just can not be self-employed in giving sport skills instruction. Our football team would like to take a picture during the first week of practice in the fall and make a poster of the picture. I know there is not a problem with this, but can they put advertisements on the posters to help pay for the cost of the posters? If they were to make a profit from the sale of posters, would this be a violation of the WIAA policies? It's a little difficult to say with certainty on this one — sight unseen. Fundamentally when you look at a poster — what's it conveying? So long as it's crystal clear that the local businesses are supporting team, school program — it's generally not been seen as a problem. If the posters are sold and proceeds placed in a booster or school account as a fund raising initiative — that has not presented amateur status concerns for the athletes. We have a few examples of posters on file that created problems for the athletes appearing in them. If you wish us to preview your poster in advance of it going to print — will do so gladly — if provided enough time. One of our baseball parents called me today with a question regarding them being contacted by a sports management firm. The letter to them indicated that their son may be considered for the baseball draft next week. There is absolutely no problem with a student and his parents speaking to a sports agent or firm - or a lawyer of their own choosing. Certainly, advise the student to not sign any contract with an agent or professional sport team until they're done with school sports. If a high school player plays baseball for an amateur baseball team in the summer, and the team he plays for receives prize money for playing in a tournament, does this take away the player's amateur status? He is the only player of high school age and does not directly receive the money. There are a number of HS student golfers, e. The student can compete - but just for competition's sake. The student and parents might wish to take some added measures to educate and create awareness that the student is an amateur and may not accept, receive or direct to another, cash or merchandise awards. If a high school athlete were given such an award, would that jeopardize their WIAA eligibility? Obviously, since your event is held Aug. Is there any issue with one of our high school junior ball players getting paid to work a basketball camp that we host for kids in grade school and middle school? Couple of questions for you: Is there anything that would prohibit us from doing that considering that we are only a private school? I was unable to locate one on the website. If not, what is the process? With respect to interstate competition; there is no form. High Handbook, Bylaw Art. II, Sect. Will simplify and summarize: Does this event require NFHS sanctions? If so, has the event received sanctioning? Are participating schools high schools? Are all schools members of their state association? In this case, with only four schools involved, disregard the first two points — the event would NOT require sanctioning. Also, include the dates the event will be held. If a softball team plays out-of-state non-bordering state and plays two games in two days is this in violation of 6f of the softball spring season regulations? Would we consider this an event rather than two competitions? No, this would not violate season regulations if it was your school's only out-of-state event. I am getting the odd request for donations for raffles, silent auctions, etc. Is this a violation? I would like clarification. Kids signing a t-shirt. It's names on a t-shirt. Violates amateur status provisions. Career ending. High Handbook, p. IV, Section B. To paraphrase; a student can be employed - but not self-employed in sport skills instruction. We have two junior high volleyball coaching positions in the district. The only interest is from a junior volleyball player and a graduating senior player. Or for the graduating senior if she is paid as well? A student can be employed. Can a student-athlete receive cash for participation in a bowling tournament? I have read through the amateur status section and am still unclear as it says they may not accept any cash or merchandise for achievement in athletics. In a word, "yes". Thus — since the Association does not presently sponsor interscholastic bowling amateur status restrictions do not apply. Same as we do not sponsor lumberjack events, bass fishing, snowmobiling, motocross, bmx or rodeo, e. On the other hand however - Even though student plays school football, basketball and baseball — and then while golfing with dad or buddy in summer event hits closest to the pin and wins a sleeve of balls, or sandwich at the club house, or a new driver, e. Our marketing department has just released some new commercials for our health care facility. They have a picture of a football player with a WIAA high school jersey with a number in the commercial. This individual is actually a university student non-athlete, non-paid actor. Answer is no. Whether paid or unpaid - A college student has no high school eligibility. He is not a full-time student at a member school and subsequently, is not subject to WIAA rules of eligibility. You were wise to use an actor — we are happy for that — but I am confused and question only the timing of seeking clarification as evidently the commercials have already been aired? A parent attended our WIAA eligibility presentation a few weeks back. His son is interested in participating in video game tournaments. Tournaments are large and small, individual and team with varying cash and material prizes. I am not sure this is considered a sport or even falls under WIAA rules. He has the potential to be sponsored by various companies as he progresses. He is working on local and national sponsorship right now. Or is it like modeling or working a job. Are there restrictions on his competition? What prizes can he accept and maintain his WIAA eligibility? This same interpretation is provided and applicable when asked about bowling, motocross, BMX, snowmobile racing, lumberjack olympics, rodeo and bass pro, etc. The amateur status rule would be enforced in an event such as an iron man triathlon! We do sponsor swim and running competition. I have a young lady from our school who qualified as a Wendy' s Heisman Candidate from our school. She did not receive state level recognition. Must be returned — if student is intending to participate in interscholastic athletics now or in the future. If not returned, student will be ineligible for the remainder of her HS career. Advise student to bring to you — you return, along with note and request response from Wendy's confirming they've received returned prize. Is it acceptable for several students to accept monetary support from local businesses to pay some of or all of the costs associated with a club sport club soccer during the off-season? Or does this threaten their amateur status? They are wondering if local businesses or individuals can assist in paying some of or all of this fee. Does this threaten their amateur status? Simple answer is no, not automatically a violation. This has unsavory potentials; e. Do you really wish to promote local business being hit yet again for personal interests of this kind? Help get kids a job. But the essence remains, 'no, not a violation out of hand. On page 34 of the Senior High Handbook Article IV, Section I of the rules of eligibility it lists those items that are permitted and those which are prohibited. One of the items that is prohibited is "balls". So that I can clarify this to my committee members, is there a distinction between "balls" and "game balls" or is this a typo? Made to team for "tonight's victory," sometimes signed by all team mates and coaches. Game balls awarded in this manner, are seen the same as trophy only more special. But nonetheless - a 'symbolic' award when given in this manner. Hitting closest to the pin or longest drive, I won a summer long supply of golf balls. Again, nothing symbolic in this. For making the winning basket, the local dealer gave me a brand new basketball of my own, just to shoot around with. Someone wants to buy basketball shoes for our three boys teams. Is this legal? Red flags just went up when they told me. Shoes — just given to athletes - would be an amateur status violation. If the benefactor wished to 'gift' the school district and in turn you wished to issue shoes to your teams, you could do that. They then become school property issued just like shoulder pads and should be collected and reissued or collected and discarded following the season in accordance with school board policy. Also see Art. IV, Rules of Eligibility p. I would also recommend there be administrative discussion on the topic from a gender equity perspective — is there anyone who will provide the same for the girls? My 10th grade advisor is running a John Madden Play Station football tournament. Can he give cash away to athletes as a prize? We would not regard it as a "best practice" by any stretch, however. I have a question concerning shoe discounts for students and teams. Am I correct to assume that the following is allowable and not an amateur status violation: A vendor wishes to provide a team discount to players if so many pairs of shoes are purchased by a team. In this case the school buys the shoes, pays the vendor and collects the money from the players that make the team. Otherwise any discount from the vendor would have to be available to any student in the school population. I do not like this model — I prefer the model where every kid who goes out - gets the discount just for going out. Or better yet, every kid and teacher in school can show up in the cafeteria Thurs. In years past, schools used to provide basketball shoes to teams. As I understand the question — this is not that model. From that perspective then at least — the discount in the model IS performance based Would not advise could not support. We would like to recognize students that participate in three sports by giving them a t-shirt. The only requirement would be that they were out for three sports the previous year. Yes - no problem. Can students who receive free or reduced lunch have participation fees waived without risking eligibility? Yes — Amateur status provisions allow students to be "reimbursed" for costs directly associated with competition. We had a senior high school girl get a hole in one at our Booster Hockey Golf Outing. Can she accept the prize, a two-year lease of a car, or would that impact her high school eligibility this year? Answer's "no. Would end her high school career. I am a member of the largest running organization in Wisconsin with about members. Our organization already has a working relationship with many of the shoe stores in southeastern Wisconsin so I don't believe it would take much convincing to get their participation. The stores could collect the forms and "cash" them in through our organization. Am certainly open to other suggestions but I believe the heart of this program would need to be the coaches themselves because they would need to identify those in need and provide them with the necessary forms. There may be a way to achieve your interests and ends without peril to a student athlete. It is not the course you've initially identified. But an alternate path might deliver the results you hope to achieve, nonetheless. Always remember — these are the school's programs, not any one coaches. I received an email from a minor league baseball club. They are hosting a "Hometown Champions" night and are wondering if our athletes would participate. Athletes would be encouraged to wear their uniforms and school apparel to the game that night and would be announced on the field during pregame over the PA system. All individuals affiliated with our championship winning teams would receive a discounted two for one ticket deal. It appears to me that this would violate WIAA rules of eligibility, since the athletes would be receiving a discount based upon athletic achievement. It is the two for one promotion that prompts me to say 'NO can do" on this one as it is presently outlined. As per Bylaws p. XI, Section 2B: When the business uses the students with two for one promotions to try to get business in the door, students are not able to take part in that. Can the hospital donate the bottles to the school, and then the school distributes as they deem appropriate give to athletes only? Can the hospital donate the bottles to the booster club, who then donates to athletes? Or - 'every student who goes out for a sport' should receive a water bottle. Can we have player awards that are sponsored? For instance can we have a "Culvers Player of the Week? No gift or anything like that. Player of the game, the week, As you describe - there would be no peril for student. So long as when we look and see the business, product, service is percent 'endorsing' student, team, school I am an athletic trainer — at my facility we have a training program and would like to roll the program out at a reduced price to employees and their immediate family members. We are offering the program to all employees, so all students would be eligible for the same discount, whether an athlete or not. If I could get something in writing either supporting or denying this proposal, it would greatly help. At least not if is as straight forward as described; i. I have a potential donor that is interested in setting up a need based scholarship for students returning to our private high school, but they would like to base one of the criteria for awarding the scholarship on athletic participation during the previous year. My concern is that while we may be able to award a scholarship to a student coming into our school based on music or art or science interest, if we start to allow scholarships to be awarded based on interest in athletics, will that fall under the recruitment ruling? Your assessment and concerns are right on the mark. Financial aid that has anything to do with athletic interests, potential, ability or performance - would render the student ineligible for their entire HS career and place your school in a status of severe non-compliance. We have had experience in this area where zealous booster members have caused great distress for members on occasion. I would like to approach a local photographer to ask them to donate a complimentary photo for each of our honored student-athletes. Would we run into a problem giving each recipient a 5x7 photo? Can you approve this, or would it violate the amateur standing rule and the rule regarding gifts? We have a player that did not dress because of grades last nighty in our 1st tournament game. At mid term our code states they become eligible as soon as they correct the grade. At the end of the quarter or semester we follow the 1 week or 15 day scenario. Can't find this in the book and want to make sure we follow procedure - I believe they are ineligible for the remainder of the tournament. Please confirm. There are three types of rules: Keep in mind that athletes who are ineligible during the WIAA tournament for any reason may not appear in uniform, participate in warm-ups, and may not participate in the awards ceremony at the WIAA tournament p. In this question and situation, the athlete may return when they become academically eligible. Always apply your code as written. Just a quick question on 15 day ineligibility. I am sure I am right on this one, but I know the parent is going to be asking questions and I want to be prepared. A wrestler's 15 day ineligibility ends today because it is the 15th day. He is not eligible for regionals tomorrow because it is not a scheduled school day correct? His eligibility would resume on Monday. He becomes eligible on the 16th scheduled school day: Our district recently passed a policy that students be required to maintain a 2. The question that has been brought up is, what happens to the special ed students who try as they might, can't make this new GPA requirement. Is there anything that can be written in the IEP to allow them to participate in these activities and "outrank" the school policy? Some have said that if it's written in the IEP than it should be followed. But, this really doesn't relate to FAPE does it? I don't know if others have experience with this and if there has been any court cases that have set a precedence for something like this. I completely agree with the basic premise I read in your comments Your district may want to address the 2. It may be done either, individually, based on identified and specific needs in the IEP. It may be done as broad policy. Either way, it ought to be "spelled out" keep in mind that if you put a different standard then 2. We would NOT set aside the "no F" component. We would not accept failure for a student. As I recall, our expectations for waiving the gpa, included: We designed the model for weekly or bi-weekly feedback from teachers. The student was responsible to initiate all contacts between teachers, AD and coaches. We have one varsity soccer team, a red JV soccer team and a white JV soccer team, and a red freshman team and a white freshman team. I understand that academic ineligibility stemming from a fourth quarter failing grade shall result in the lesser of 21 calendar days beginning with the date of earliest competition September 14 or one third of the maximum games allowed in a sport. Is one third of the games allowed based solely on the varsity season schedule, or each schedule for each level? As an example, one third of the JV season is a different "date" for eligibility than one third of a varsity season. In turn, one third of the season in the JV red schedule is different than one third for the white schedule. Is it possible to have, five different dates of eligibility based on what one-third of a season is? Or is the one-third of the season based on the varsity schedule and, therefore, soccer has one "date" for eligibility. Understood is the lesser of 21 days or one-third. The 21 calendar days would be the same "count" for all, i. In so far as JV and varsity, the max number of games that can be scheduled is the same for all sports, e. You are correct to adjust figure for frosh. The max they are allowed is Thus one third is 5. We have a student who competed in wrestling during grades The family moved to Florida, while the wrestler moved to live and work with grandparents in Puerto Rico for one year. The wrestler did not receive any education for the year. The wrestler returned to our school, established residency with parents, and plans to complete his senior year. Is the wrestler eligible to compete as a "fifth year senior" having only completed six semesters of education? The wrestler will turn 18 during the upcoming school year. Not without a consecutive semester waiver. A student has the potential for up to eight consecutive semesters of eligibility beginning with grade nine. His consecutive semester "clock" or count begins when he began 9th grade. That he or the family chose to take a year off does not stop that count. In the most recent grade-reporting period. Grades go on transcripts at the end of each nine week term. But every three weeks we make available "progress reports. Now we have a new computer network grading program that does not allow these phrases to be used. For progress reports, we will have to give out actual letter grades now. Our code of conduct refers to grades at the end of each nine week term - the progress reports had no impact on eligibility. May we continue to consider the most recent grade reporting period to be the ones that occur at every nine weeks? Your dilemma is not unique. For added awareness and clarification, you might find a way to document that: Academic eligibility for all extra curricular activities shall be based on the actual nine week grade which is the grade that will appear on the student's permanent record of this term. This is just an idea. Bottom line, the "progress report" is not the "final" grade Does competition mean when practice starts, or when games start. I used the start of the season, and was questioned on it. We have the same wording in our code as the WIAA for fall sports. Earliest date of competition is the date of first game. Not the date practice may begin. See Handbook pgs. There is also a matrix for fall sport eligibility on the web and on p. Penalties for use of ineligible players is outline on p. I would like your input on the following situation. A student this summer transferred from our school to School X and wants to play football. In looking at his academic record for last semester, he received two failing grades from us. However, the student took two sessions of science in summer school at X High School and received a passing grade for both classes. The student failed both physical science and world cultures at our school. In looking at the bylaws it states a student may become eligible through summer school provided the courses made up are equivalent. The School X coach is asking me to determine whether or not the student would be eligible. How does one determine if the classes are equivalent in this case? My feeling is that the student would be eligible at X. Please note I am not sure how the science classes compare. If he failed three classes he'd need to make up at least two, etc. That's the "equivalent" number of F's that made him not eligible. If you were a "No F" policy, then the equivalent is two classes made up Under no circumstance could a student erase multiple failures with less then the same number of classes completed in summer. Also, it has not been interpreted to mean that if the student failed geometry, they must re-take geometry in the summer or even another math class for that matter. We are addressing number of failures and classes We have several students that have not done well in regular education classes that will be in an on-site GED program during the school year. In your opinion, are these students eligible to compete in extra-curricular activities? Provided these students are enrolled as full-time students, same as every other student, make the necessary grades not more then one F, etc. You can find the added definition for full-time student on p. I have a question regarding academic eligibility of a transfer student. The student transferring to our school passed all of his classes for the second semester, but had failing grades for two of the classes in the fourth quarter. Which grades take precedence for academic eligibility, the second semester grades or the fourth quarter grades? The WIAA does not determine whether a school must count the quarter or semester grade. That's the school's "call". Our only stipulation is that whatever you use to determine academic eligibility it is the "standard" and is used all of the time and by all sport participants. Not using the quarter grades for "this student or team" and the semester grade for the other student or team. If there is a trend, it might be to look at the quarter grades for sport eligibility. If eligibility is a "privilege" then some feel that maintaining that privilege is an earn as you go proposition, and that the quarter grade is the most accurate reflection of what the "student's doing now" in order to preserve the privilege of access to sport competition. In this situation the discussion revolves around whether to use semester grades or quarter grades, when a student is transferring, the "receiving school's" academic policy is applied regarding semester or quarter grade usage. What exists now is rolandgarros. He said frenchopen. Nonetheless, a few key strokes shows who is winning the numbers game. But if English trumps French on the Internet, there are still small victories. It was a bit of a mess. The rub is that Roland Garros, the French fighter pilot for whom the stadium is named, was not much interested in playing or watching tennis. He was a rugby player, one who was killed when his plane was shot down in near the end of World War I. Friends later requested that the tennis stadium be named for him when it was built to stage the Davis Cup final between the United States and France. The French Open did not become open — accessible to professionals — until Until then it was known in English as the French Championships, which is much closer to its formal French name: Les Internationaux de France de Tennis. The French preference for Roland Garros as an alternative name for the tournament happened gradually, according to Christophe Fagniez, a general director of the French Tennis Federation. But it accelerated in the s as the event, under the leadership of the longtime federation president Philippe Chatrier, embarked on ambitious expansion and the promotion of the Roland Garros product line. Caloni said the dual identity of the tournament is not without a price. For now, he said, there is no such thing as a licensed product line labeled French Open, which means that fans in, for example, North America, Australia, Britain and British-influenced India have a dearth of merchandise bearing the tournament name they favor. Caloni said that was costing the French Open market share in the United States compared with the other three Grand Slam tournaments: But Caloni said the French federation was examining the possibility of starting a French Open line that would complement rather than compete with the Roland Garros line and probably be targeted at high-end consumers with the focus on luxury. Meanwhile, for foreign visitors a choice remains to be made back at Roland Garros Stadium that name, at least, all cultures can agree on. Tennis A Puzzler in Paris: French Open or Roland Garros? Just what name is a well-meaning tennis fan supposed to choose?.

With high school career-ending ramifications, amateur status regulations must be understood and carefully monitored. Amateur status penalties may be reduced upon request of a school on the basis of documented extenuating circumstances, when accompanied by evidence of complete restitution made by the athlete if the circumstance is applicable.

Additionally, a student who was a member of a school team during the previous year may not delay reporting for the school team beyond the school's official opening day of practice in order to continue non-school training or competition. RE — Art. WIAA rules prevent the recruitment of students for athletic reasons. The specific rule in question states: Schools are ultimately responsible for the eligibility of all of their students and the school needs to communicate rules and pay close attention to the circumstances that bring students to the school. Obviously, public schools and private schools encourage students to enroll and this certainly can be done without violating the undue influence rule. The following gives some examples of acceptable and unacceptable practices. This list cannot be considered allinclusive, but should be helpful as an example. It is the responsibility of schools to contact other schools and report any possible violations of WIAA rules. The WIAA is always willing to provide rules clarifications and, where necessary, will impose sanctions on schools and programs. It is far better for schools to provide leadership and control to prevent problems than to have to deal with these issues after the fact. Coaching out of season is NOT allowed during the school year. Unrestricted and unlimited apply only during the summer. All sport coaches have five days of unrestricted school coaching contac t opportunity during the summer, between the end of school and July 31; the days do not need to be consecutive. Unrestricted school opportunities allow you to use school support and facilities as you would during the season. The 5 contact days must be the same for all levels within a sport program. Unrestricted school contact days are open to any and all interested students in your school from the last day of school to July They are not allowed during the school year. Unrestricted school football coaching contact must end on July 27, in order to meet the dead week rule. Football must follow the acclimatization plan if school resources are used. Use of school support and facilities must be done in the same manner as any other non-school group such as 4-H, boy scouts, or local rotary. Unlimited contact is open to any and all interested students in your community and other communities along with being voluntary. During the summer and school year out of season, athletes may assemble in any manner they wish without school or coach involvement other than the five contact days. The booster club is considered non-school. Unlimited Non-School Contact all sports except football. Open to any and all interested students in your community and other communities. School facilities must be contracted for in accordance with your school district policies. Summer Last day of school until first day of school in the fall. There are no restrictions as to the number of athletes from the same school allowed on a given team. School Year First day of school until last day of school. During the school year, you may only use your athletes as clinicians during the sport season. In the summertime, a school may conduct a clinic for students in grade 8 and below, where high school varsity and junior varsity coaches may use some or all of their athletes as clinicians. Individual students may be used as clinicians a maximum of 6 days during the summer when school is not in session. Using students as clinicians in such a manner must conclude no later than July 31 except FB must comply with the dead period. For baseball, does that mean a coach can throw bp as long he doesn't coach or advise or anything like that? Absolutely not. Baseball coaches may throw with players, but not catch the pitcher from a catcher's stance. Baseball coaches may hit in the batting cage, but may not pitch batting practice or drop balls into the pitching machine. Baseball coaches may field ground balls, but may not hit ground balls. If it looks like a baseball drill, the coach may not do it. Recreate is not doing drills. Recreate is playing. I have a question about accepting prize money from cycling races I compete in over the summer. I was wondering if it would be permissible that if I were to win any cash prize, that I could accept only the amount of entry for the race? Our amateur status rules which the member schools have put into effect limit student-athletes from receiving benefits from athletic achievements in WIAA recognized sports. Thus, since the Association does not presently sponsor interscholastic cycling amateur status restrictions do not apply to your cycling achievements. Current WIAA recognized sports are: I am the association manager of our local bowling association, and I have a young gentleman that will be going out for the high school golf team and wants to bowl in a USBC sanctioned league. There will be prize money at the end of the bowling season which will be the second week of April. What is his eligibility or penalty if he participates up to the beginning of the season, or during the season? He is under 18 and his parents have signed a USBC waiver? Thus, since the Association does not presently sponsor interscholastic bowling amateur status restrictions do not apply. I represent a free publication in the Madison area. We would like to highlight two area high school athletes. There will obviously be no compensation, just an interview and photos. Do you foresee any problems or violations? Articles published by news gathering publications have been acceptable by our member's rules. Your concerns may revolve around amateur status. Athletes may not appear in ads promoting a publication, product, or service whether they receive compensation or not. I own a local running store, and we are going to be doing a team building event for the store at a fun run on February 13, I have two students athletes that work for me, and I don't want it to affect their track eligibility. They both own jerseys with our store name on them already, so they will not be receiving any prizes or benefit from running on the team. Please let me know if they can run on the store team for this event without making them ineligible for the track season. The students may run since it will be during the off season for both cross country and track. They may compete on the team, but cannot receive any benefits other than a trophy, etc. They could wear the t-shirts, but you would want to refrain from using any photos with them in any advertising. Can a club volleyball organization, not associated with the school, give a scholarship to a 9th grade student to pay her fees for the club? The club wanted to ask to make sure that if they scholarship her fees, that she does not lose amateur status. So long as any student who wants to have fees paid for the opportunity can also get reimbursed. Athletes may only have reimbursement for actual and necessary costs associated with transportation, food, lodging and entry fees paid in connection with playing a contest. This opportunity may not be a "benefit" based on performance, e. My varsity girls basketball team has asked if it is legal for a private party to purchase pink shoes for them to wear in a game for cancer fundraiser. My response is that if the private party wants to purchase them for any girl in our school who would be interested in them it would be ok. Just for the varsity girls basketball team would not be allowed. Am I correct? Then they said what if the private party donated the money to the basketball booster club and the club purchased the shoes for the team? My response was that I would not allow it because I viewed it as a way of skirting the rule. Am I correct there as well? You are correct. If the private group the booster club is not considered school wanted to purchase the shoes and gift them to the school, the school could issue them as part of the uniform. At the end of the season, the school could sell them to the players for a reasonable not outrageous price or the school should keep them. We are having a conference showcase on January All conference girls teams will play that day. I was going to have a couple of players from the corresponding boys teams compete in a 3 pt. Is that ok? As you have described the contest, this would not meet our membership rules. Our Rules of Eligibility page 37 of the WIAA Handbook state a student becomes ineligible in a sport for the remainder of the season for competing in nonschool game, meet, or contest in the same sport during the season of practice or competition established by the school ROE, VIA. In addition, our membership rules of amateur status state: A student may not receive such merchandise items as shirts, jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts, jerseys, warm-ups, equipment, balls, duffel bags, backpacks, watches, rings, billfolds, coupons, gift certificates, e. Question on awards for representatives for our school for Wendy's High School Heisman. I believe every school that has students fill out the forms receives one boys winner and one girls winner. Article IV, Section 1, B. Just wondering if I am taking this too literally. A student could participate in the contest — but is not able to accept or direct to school or any other person or place, the various cash awards which are mentioned. My guess is no as this would essentially be the same as the student athlete accepting the cash award. The answer to your question is that a student athlete may NOT direct to another, reimbursement or award in any form a salary, b cash, merchandise of any kind or amount or d share of game or season proceeds, for achievement in athletics. Some additional detail for random draw based contests: Thus, you must always see the person whose name is drawn is the person that "performs" the skill. This year, our team wore a small helmet sticker on the back of our helmets honoring a classmate of our seniors who had passed away in elementary school. In honor of that, the mother of the former classmate we had honored approached me about the possibility of her purchasing from our school the jerseys of our seniors, who were the classmates of her late son. She wanted to give them as a gift their home game jerseys that they had worn this year. I was wondering if this was acceptable. Would she have to wait and give it to them after they graduated from high school? She would like to give them to them for Christmas. I didn't want to do anything to hurt their eligibility. Our membership rules pertaining to amateur status allow students to purchase uniforms from schools according to the procedures in place by the administration and board of education. If your school has a practice of allowing anyone and everyone the opportunity to purchase used uniforms, then the situation as you describe it may be done. If your school does not have a practice in place of allowing anyone and everyone the opportunity to purchase used uniforms, I suggest that you go to your administration and board of education to establish such a program in order to satisfy the amateur status rule. As far as a team goes, however, can a sport teams' fund-raised money be used to supplement all players purchase of something like polo shirts or warm-ups? Reimbursement may only be for transportation, lodging, and food for competition from an outside group or school. A t-shirt is allowed, but polo shirts or warm ups are not. The owner of a pizza parlor has shown interested in making a donation to the program in return for advertising in the form of a half-court shot contest. For each home game, we would randomly select one fan in attendance and give them a chance at the "X half court super shot" or something similar. Anyone who makes the shot wins a gift certificate to the restaurant, with the certificate being provided by the pizza parlor. If they have a banner, I would offer to place that in the gym, and a few announcements would be made during the game to plug the contest and the pizza parlor. Before I return the call and start talking about anything substantial like donation size, I want to make sure I have the green light here. As described — this is OK provided everyone has the opportunity through random draw. If everyone who buys a ticket gets the opportunity: XI, Rules of Eligibility Art. When looking at random draws: Be sure your number is broad and not skewed 'by just the JV players sitting in the bleacher's when lucky ticket's drawn' Opportunity is then no longer, random. This may only be done during regular season games and not WIAA tournament games. Is it a violation for a booster club to pay for a Tri-State All-Star game fee out-of-season for a senior athlete? A student may be reimbursed actual and necessary costs associated with competing. This may include transportation, food, lodging, and entry fees. I have a niece that races go-carts in the summer and receives trophies, ribbons, etc. She also receives a payout at the end of the season. She is a freshman this year, and I am wondering if this will affect her amateur status. Will she be able to participate in school athletics? Thus — since the Association does not presently sponsor interscholastic go-carting, amateur status restrictions do not apply. Same as we do not sponsor lumberjack events, bass fishing, snowmobiling, motocross, BMX or rodeo, e. On the other hand however - even though student plays school football, basketball and baseball — and then while golfing with dad or buddy in summer event hits closest to the pin and wins a sleeve of balls, or sandwich at the club house, or a new driver, e. I am the site director for a hockey training facility. We are looking to sponsor a player of the week for one of the Web sites that covers hockey and already awards a player of the week. I was hoping that you could verify that this is not a violation of any rules and we will not get any players into trouble by sponsoring the player of the week. I was also wondering if it would be legal for us to give a free team or individual training session to each player that is honored with the player of the week award? Sponsors can be used for a player of the week if done properly. We would be happy to review your plan to ensure no violations to amateur status for the athletes. As for an award or benefit, athletes may not receive discounts for merchandise or services unless offered to ALL students. Please refer to our rules on our Web site. Is there a way that a club can legally provide financial assistance to a family of an athlete who can not afford the full club program? If a club wishes to reimburse, they may do so provided: ANY student who wants to have fees paid for the opportunity can also get reimbursed. This opportunity may not be a "benefit" based on performance,e. Athletes may be reimbursed actual and necessary costs associated with competition. I am the boys basketball coach at a member school. We are playing in a holiday tournament over Christmas break this year and are thinking about staying overnight in a hotel. I was wondering if it would be legal for our booster club to help pay some of the cost of the hotels or if the school would have to pick up the entire bill. I just want to make sure that we handle this correctly so we're not violating any rules. This can get done — in either of a couple ways. Both "work" within our member's rules. Since our Bylaws and Amateur status rules provide that "costs associated with competition" can be reimbursed, the boosters could either pay the hotel bill directly or they could "gift the school" the necessary amount and the school could cut the check. There might even be some tax exempt benefit to the second way. But either way will work within the rules. Our volleyball team would like to go see another team play as a team. Can our coach pay for them to get into the game? Can they use money they raised though fundraisers? Or do they each have to pay their own way into the game? As a form of entertainment, this is acceptable. It is viewed as "group entertainment" and permitted by the Bylaws and Rules of Eligibility. In addition, the payment can be from any source provided it is offered to everyone. Wanted to clear with you any potential conflict we could avoid with Web site video we are planning to shoot in September for our clinic. We are doing a 60 second video, and some 30 second clips of our clinic to describe who we are and what we do. We will be getting consents of any minors see attached form and they will not receive any type of financial reimbursement or remuneration. In addition, they will not have on any team logo gear. Is there anything else they or we should or would need to be cautious of as the last thing we would ever want to do is risk or even question ANY eligibility? Thanks for checking in advance. Being paid is only a portion of the member's provision. It also talks about "being identified as an athlete". There are three ways most common in considering a student having been identified — by text or spoken word, by apparel and by props. Apparel does not necessarily need to be just the school's uniform to convey the student is an athlete. Best advice, best practice is to use young adults — recent graduates — who have no high school eligibility remaining. Another best practice recommendation is to simply use actors — students who are not athletes at all — then you have far greater liberties. When I say it's best practice, it's because of our many experiences where one promotion stimulates another in a neighboring business and that business owner does not take the precautions you have contemplated, does not contact us as you have — and does harm to another member's students. Since we try to help all of our members we must maintain that awareness of the connection of all that goes on. If you would like us to preview your idea before you launch it we will be happy to do so. Can a business put a high school team logo s in their ads in support of their local team s? With permission of the school due to licensing issues, you may do so. When athletes are involved, the rules are more strict. We own a hockey pro shop and would like to give a 10 percent discount to all high school hockey players in the area. Player comes in to purchase a piece of equipment and they say they are on the ABC team, and we make sure they are on the roster that we received from their coach and then we give them the 10 percent. Is this okay to do? Our membership rules require the athletes who participate in WIAA athletics be amateur athletes. In the situation which you stated, would be a violation of our rules. This includes but is not limited to: I have a couple returning starters who will be seniors that would like their jersey from last year to take senior pictures that are scheduled before the start of try-outs. Is this legal per WIAA? As long as your school allows uniforms to be issued in the summertime and your athletes comply with the amateur status rules, this would not be a problem. There are times when photographers may wish to display pictures of students in athletic wear in their studio, etc. The students should not receive any cash or merchandise in the form of discounts in the cost of the picture, waiver of sitting fees, free wallet-size photos, and similar inducements if identified as an athlete or selected because of being an athlete. The athlete may not provide an endorsement in any promotional event for the photographer. Below you will find the text of an offer extended to our school that would use some of our athletes in a commercial. Would this be a problem regarding amateur status? It is a newer product on the frozen pizza market. We are putting together a T. I would like the opportunity to talk with you about the chance of using some of your players in the commercial. In turn, I would donate some food for fund raising for the walking the path drive. We have the thought of running a football theme commercial as well as having weekly drawings for pep rallies at local high schools. If you could let me know if this is of interest to you I would like to sit down and work out the details and schedule for taping. This is absolutely a problem. A violation of the amateur status would be career ending. Our radio stations are planning to create an Athlete of the Week award presented to a senior student beginning this fall and we would like to partner with a business in presenting a scholarship to an Athlete of the Year selected from all the weekly winners at the end of the school year. Is there any problem with this proposal? Our member's amateur status provisions are outline in Art. To begin, WIAA rules do not prevent a student from receiving a college scholarship. We recommend the funds be paid directly to the student's school at the start of their second semester of college; but what you decide to do for a senior who has graduated - is really up to you. One of the most common perils we encounter in some promotions is the student "appearing" to be endorsing a business, service, product or plan. This often happens unintentionally. If we receive copies of the piece, we are also glad to work with businesses to try to help avoid any negatives from arising from what you are intending to be a good thing. Our local recreation department is starting a men's softball league this summer and the director contacted me with a question. He was wondering if high school athletes are allowed to participate? There will be a cash payout to the winning team, but nothing to individuals. Student athletes could enter the league and play. They may not, however, accept, receive or direct to another cash or merchandise awards. My question is this: I have some track t-shirts that I received at no cost. I thought of giving them away to track athletes, one at a time per week. No Problem. Both in the Bylaws, Art. Where do students stand regarding the Wendy's Heisman award recognizing athletic, academic and citizenship and "amateur status? Students are judged based on their academic achievements, community service involvement, and athletic accomplishments. Up until last year, schools identified a male and female nominee, much like we do with the WIAA scholar athlete. Last year, Wendy's changed the nomination process to allow any student to "nominate themselves" online. Is it acceptable for us to take photos of physicians rendering care to student athletes and then displaying such photos in our clinic office as artwork? I understand we would need to get a photo consent from the minor athlete's parent, but I need to ensure we would not violate WIAA regulations. What you are proposing could hold the potential for a student to lose their high school eligibility for the balance of their school career. There is one strategy by which you could accomplish this promotion yet not adversely affect the students you photographed — if you developed a "calendar file" of photos and always used this spring's graduates in next year's promotions. I am the head boy's soccer coach at a member high school. I have some 8th graders coming up next year who are Hmong and are said to be good players. I don't know yet if they play in Hmong leagues, but my concern is if they plan on playing in any Hmong soccer tournaments, which as far as I can tell, all offer cash prizes to the winners. It is my impression that under Article IVB, there is no way they can participate in such a tournament without permanently forfeiting their amateur status. Is there any circumstance where they could? The rule simply provides that a WIAA student athlete may not "accept, receive or direct to another any cash or merchandise award. In addition to the amateur status, be sure to talk with your students about the nonschool competition rules. As part of a promotional brochure we have put together for a local business, we have included a picture of one of our employees playing "soft toss. He was not paid any money for the use of the picture. Have we violated any WIAA rules? Sight unseen difficult to say with certainty - but potentially, yes. If student is an undergraduate and has hopes of playing any more WIAA sports during this school year - Do not use this photo until you have brought it past the school's AD. An athlete can be identified as an athlete — by text, by apparel, by props. An amateur status violation is career ending for a high school student. Lastly, you should always consult with the local athletic director on matters that could affect school sport eligibility. Our basketball club is interested in sponsoring an all-star game for players in our conference. The game would only involve seniors that have finished playing their high school basketball career. If they want to play the game sometime after the State Tournament, is there a deadline as to when they can play the game during the school year? I believe seniors are OK to play even if they are spring sport athletes, correct? They also gave me a copy of a "Q and A" from sometime past concerning all-star games. The Q and A references Art. IV, a question concerning this article is the following: Can a high school coach only coach a team if none of the players on either team are out for a spring sport? This is very clear from the Bylaws Art. IV which stems from our members fundamental opposition to all-star events; which they had viewed as exploitive of students. There is not a deadline for seniors to participate in the game as you have proposed. I've got a couple questions that are somewhat similar. They've requested pictures of our team playing there so that they can put them on their field website. Is this OK? My impression so far is that they want to have a photo section that shows various pictures of the many teams that use the field. Not sure if they are selling advertising on this site to outside businesses. Would that be a factor in determining acceptability? Is it OK to put pictures of our athletes on such a card? What's on the site, how the photos are used is essential to know and see before being able to say. Selling advertising is only one of the concerns in this type of idea. Can a booster club at a school help pay a fee that an athlete has to pay to be on a club volleyball team? To begin, a player of the week, team of the week, e. The recognition may be afforded without peril. But school administration and coaches must have oversight. In the case I referred to at WADA, an area TV station and an area pizza vendor - under the guise of selecting a "team of the week" picked several area HS's over the course of the fall season and when the team was notified they were team of the week and would receive a pizza dinner for the team which can be allowed — Bylaws Art. XI, Sect 2A. The pizza arrived but so did a video camera which was given to the students. The students were asked to shoot several minutes of video which was then placed on the internet. What appeared on the internet was seen only as an advertisement for the pizza co. With some education of students, oversight by coaches and AD's and the business promotions staff a lot of distress and a year of probation could have been avoided. A local restaurant has offered to feed our football team free of charge this Wednesday. I looked at the Handbook to make sure this was not an amateur status violation and was not sure after reading it over a few times. Could you please clarify? We have some kids that are involved in wrestling and basketball. The last thing I want to do is jeopardize those seasons. So long as it's voluntary, not attached to some other "promotion" and is available to any on the team interested in attending - you can allow this. See Sr. High Handbook, Art. XI, Sect, 2A p. Her mother would like to solicit sponsors to help defray the costs of these trips. Does that endanger the runner, a junior, of her amateur status? On something like this I recommend caution. A student can be reimbursed actual and necessary costs associated with competition. That might be achieved without peril through solicitation. See Rules At A Glance: We have a group that would like to run some halftime contests where gift certificates could be awarded. Are there any restrictions outlined by the WIAA? Does the WIAA have any statements regarding advertising at games? Halftime contests is a broad description. They can take on many forms. Some may be specific skill of sport performance, others like an egg or water balloon toss - having nothing to do with skill of sport performance. Depending on how a student is provided access to the opportunity - whether by random draw, or by simply purchase a ticket and everyone gets a chance to play, as well as what a student will be doing in the contest will determine what a student athlete might be allowed to receive for winning. Of course for adults and non- students, WIAA rules and amateur status provisions have no bearing. In addition, what you choose to do during your own school's regular season will otherwise be largely up to you. Here is some discussion about random draw based contests for some additional detail. You are always most wise to take a "wide berth" around amateur status concerns. With respect to the "lucky ticket holder" and random draws - the rules say an athlete may not receive benefit as a result of "being an athlete" I have a question regarding the distribution of t-shirts and sweatshirts at a basketball league in which non-basketball players play in the winter. The league consists of teams from three communities. None of these players play basketball at the high school, but most participate in other WIAA sponsored sports. They simply join this winter league and play at church gyms within the communities. Is it acceptable for the winning team and second place team in the tournament at the end of the season to receive a sweatshirt first place and a t-shirt second place? I have read the "Amateur Status" requirements and stipulations, but am still uncertain. T-shirts have been identified by the members as acceptable for a student to receive. Sweatshirts have not been approved. See Bylaws, Art. XI, Sect. On the other hand, however, even though student plays school football, basketball and baseball — golfing with dad or buddy in summer event — hits closest to the pin and wins a sleeve of balls, or sandwich at the club house, or a new drive, e. We will be hosting a varsity volleyball tournament and may need to use JV players as line judges. My question is, is it allowable to pay them as we would an adult line judge? A student may be employed and you may compensate them. The only potential for assertion of inappropriateness comes when student is picked because they are the 'best' jv player s. Opportunity for the job should be available to any interested, and selected based on knowledge and ability to perform the work, not based on athletic abilities. We have a girl who is an incoming freshmen that participated in the Hershey track meet this summer and qualified for their national meet. She attended the meet, but her trip was paid for by Hershey. Is this a violation of amateur status? No, not a violation — provided the student did not accept or receive any other unacceptable awards. ROE, Art. IV Amateur Status provides in section B-1a. As students begin registering for school and sports, three questions have come up that we would like some feed back on. They do meet the criteria for free and reduced lunches. The questions are: We view this as costs associated with competition. The boosters should gift the school the necessary dollars that would meet this need. Some schools have this policy. Will this affect that student's amateur status? A local business wants to donate the t-shirts I intended to purchase for the year old summer baseball coach winning the Teen League State Tournament. Is there a violation there? The t-shirts would not mention the name of the business. Also, can a parent buy those same players a key chain celebrating their win of the same tournament? At present, a key chain is not. My daughter is going to be a senior this fall and she and two other HS girls have been asked to play on a co-ed slow pitch softball team that is going to be in a tournament in two weeks. They are the only players on the team that are still in high school. I have been told that they may play on this team as long as they DO NOT accept any prize money that may be given out at the end of the tournament even if the other members of the team accept the money. Is this correct? Essentially, yes. A student may not accept, receive or direct to another - cash or merchandise award. Would recommend you also discuss this with your school's AD. I am from a large city, and I am a senior in high school. I was emancipated from my parents and now I live on my own. However, life in the city is hard, and I decided that I am going to move to a small-town school. Before I actually do this, I just wanted to know if I would be able to play basketball in the new school if I make the team? Answer to your question is "no. We have a question regarding a job that my son was offered. He was given a position through the Park and Rec Dept. He plays on a varsity high school tennis team in the spring. Is there any conflict? Students can be employed in this manner — by rec depts. YMCA, country clubs, aquatic centers, etc. They just can not be self-employed in giving sport skills instruction. Our football team would like to take a picture during the first week of practice in the fall and make a poster of the picture. I know there is not a problem with this, but can they put advertisements on the posters to help pay for the cost of the posters? If they were to make a profit from the sale of posters, would this be a violation of the WIAA policies? It's a little difficult to say with certainty on this one — sight unseen. Fundamentally when you look at a poster — what's it conveying? So long as it's crystal clear that the local businesses are supporting team, school program — it's generally not been seen as a problem. If the posters are sold and proceeds placed in a booster or school account as a fund raising initiative — that has not presented amateur status concerns for the athletes. We have a few examples of posters on file that created problems for the athletes appearing in them. If you wish us to preview your poster in advance of it going to print — will do so gladly — if provided enough time. One of our baseball parents called me today with a question regarding them being contacted by a sports management firm. The letter to them indicated that their son may be considered for the baseball draft next week. There is absolutely no problem with a student and his parents speaking to a sports agent or firm - or a lawyer of their own choosing. Certainly, advise the student to not sign any contract with an agent or professional sport team until they're done with school sports. If a high school player plays baseball for an amateur baseball team in the summer, and the team he plays for receives prize money for playing in a tournament, does this take away the player's amateur status? He is the only player of high school age and does not directly receive the money. There are a number of HS student golfers, e. The student can compete - but just for competition's sake. The student and parents might wish to take some added measures to educate and create awareness that the student is an amateur and may not accept, receive or direct to another, cash or merchandise awards. If a high school athlete were given such an award, would that jeopardize their WIAA eligibility? Obviously, since your event is held Aug. Is there any issue with one of our high school junior ball players getting paid to work a basketball camp that we host for kids in grade school and middle school? Couple of questions for you: Is there anything that would prohibit us from doing that considering that we are only a private school? I was unable to locate one on the website. If not, what is the process? With respect to interstate competition; there is no form. High Handbook, Bylaw Art. II, Sect. Will simplify and summarize: Does this event require NFHS sanctions? If so, has the event received sanctioning? Are participating schools high schools? Are all schools members of their state association? In this case, with only four schools involved, disregard the first two points — the event would NOT require sanctioning. Also, include the dates the event will be held. If a softball team plays out-of-state non-bordering state and plays two games in two days is this in violation of 6f of the softball spring season regulations? Would we consider this an event rather than two competitions? No, this would not violate season regulations if it was your school's only out-of-state event. I am getting the odd request for donations for raffles, silent auctions, etc. Is this a violation? I would like clarification. Kids signing a t-shirt. It's names on a t-shirt. Violates amateur status provisions. Career ending. High Handbook, p. IV, Section B. To paraphrase; a student can be employed - but not self-employed in sport skills instruction. We have two junior high volleyball coaching positions in the district. The only interest is from a junior volleyball player and a graduating senior player. Or for the graduating senior if she is paid as well? A student can be employed. Can a student-athlete receive cash for participation in a bowling tournament? I have read through the amateur status section and am still unclear as it says they may not accept any cash or merchandise for achievement in athletics. In a word, "yes". Thus — since the Association does not presently sponsor interscholastic bowling amateur status restrictions do not apply. Same as we do not sponsor lumberjack events, bass fishing, snowmobiling, motocross, bmx or rodeo, e. On the other hand however - Even though student plays school football, basketball and baseball — and then while golfing with dad or buddy in summer event hits closest to the pin and wins a sleeve of balls, or sandwich at the club house, or a new driver, e. Our marketing department has just released some new commercials for our health care facility. They have a picture of a football player with a WIAA high school jersey with a number in the commercial. This individual is actually a university student non-athlete, non-paid actor. Answer is no. Whether paid or unpaid - A college student has no high school eligibility. He is not a full-time student at a member school and subsequently, is not subject to WIAA rules of eligibility. You were wise to use an actor — we are happy for that — but I am confused and question only the timing of seeking clarification as evidently the commercials have already been aired? A parent attended our WIAA eligibility presentation a few weeks back. His son is interested in participating in video game tournaments. Tournaments are large and small, individual and team with varying cash and material prizes. I am not sure this is considered a sport or even falls under WIAA rules. He has the potential to be sponsored by various companies as he progresses. He is working on local and national sponsorship right now. Or is it like modeling or working a job. Are there restrictions on his competition? What prizes can he accept and maintain his WIAA eligibility? This same interpretation is provided and applicable when asked about bowling, motocross, BMX, snowmobile racing, lumberjack olympics, rodeo and bass pro, etc. The amateur status rule would be enforced in an event such as an iron man triathlon! We do sponsor swim and running competition. I have a young lady from our school who qualified as a Wendy' s Heisman Candidate from our school. She did not receive state level recognition. Must be returned — if student is intending to participate in interscholastic athletics now or in the future. If not returned, student will be ineligible for the remainder of her HS career. Advise student to bring to you — you return, along with note and request response from Wendy's confirming they've received returned prize. Is it acceptable for several students to accept monetary support from local businesses to pay some of or all of the costs associated with a club sport club soccer during the off-season? Or does this threaten their amateur status? They are wondering if local businesses or individuals can assist in paying some of or all of this fee. Does this threaten their amateur status? Simple answer is no, not automatically a violation. This has unsavory potentials; e. Do you really wish to promote local business being hit yet again for personal interests of this kind? Help get kids a job. But the essence remains, 'no, not a violation out of hand. On page 34 of the Senior High Handbook Article IV, Section I of the rules of eligibility it lists those items that are permitted and those which are prohibited. One of the items that is prohibited is "balls". So that I can clarify this to my committee members, is there a distinction between "balls" and "game balls" or is this a typo? Made to team for "tonight's victory," sometimes signed by all team mates and coaches. Game balls awarded in this manner, are seen the same as trophy only more special. But nonetheless - a 'symbolic' award when given in this manner. Hitting closest to the pin or longest drive, I won a summer long supply of golf balls. Again, nothing symbolic in this. For making the winning basket, the local dealer gave me a brand new basketball of my own, just to shoot around with. Someone wants to buy basketball shoes for our three boys teams. Is this legal? Red flags just went up when they told me. Shoes — just given to athletes - would be an amateur status violation. If the benefactor wished to 'gift' the school district and in turn you wished to issue shoes to your teams, you could do that. They then become school property issued just like shoulder pads and should be collected and reissued or collected and discarded following the season in accordance with school board policy. Also see Art. IV, Rules of Eligibility p. I would also recommend there be administrative discussion on the topic from a gender equity perspective — is there anyone who will provide the same for the girls? My 10th grade advisor is running a John Madden Play Station football tournament. Can he give cash away to athletes as a prize? We would not regard it as a "best practice" by any stretch, however. I have a question concerning shoe discounts for students and teams. Am I correct to assume that the following is allowable and not an amateur status violation: A vendor wishes to provide a team discount to players if so many pairs of shoes are purchased by a team. In this case the school buys the shoes, pays the vendor and collects the money from the players that make the team. Otherwise any discount from the vendor would have to be available to any student in the school population. I do not like this model — I prefer the model where every kid who goes out - gets the discount just for going out. Or better yet, every kid and teacher in school can show up in the cafeteria Thurs. In years past, schools used to provide basketball shoes to teams. As I understand the question — this is not that model. From that perspective then at least — the discount in the model IS performance based Would not advise could not support. We would like to recognize students that participate in three sports by giving them a t-shirt. The only requirement would be that they were out for three sports the previous year. Yes - no problem. Can students who receive free or reduced lunch have participation fees waived without risking eligibility? Yes — Amateur status provisions allow students to be "reimbursed" for costs directly associated with competition. We had a senior high school girl get a hole in one at our Booster Hockey Golf Outing. Can she accept the prize, a two-year lease of a car, or would that impact her high school eligibility this year? Answer's "no. Would end her high school career. I am a member of the largest running organization in Wisconsin with about members. Our organization already has a working relationship with many of the shoe stores in southeastern Wisconsin so I don't believe it would take much convincing to get their participation. The stores could collect the forms and "cash" them in through our organization. Am certainly open to other suggestions but I believe the heart of this program would need to be the coaches themselves because they would need to identify those in need and provide them with the necessary forms. There may be a way to achieve your interests and ends without peril to a student athlete. It is not the course you've initially identified. But an alternate path might deliver the results you hope to achieve, nonetheless. Always remember — these are the school's programs, not any one coaches. I received an email from a minor league baseball club. They are hosting a "Hometown Champions" night and are wondering if our athletes would participate. Athletes would be encouraged to wear their uniforms and school apparel to the game that night and would be announced on the field during pregame over the PA system. All individuals affiliated with our championship winning teams would receive a discounted two for one ticket deal. It appears to me that this would violate WIAA rules of eligibility, since the athletes would be receiving a discount based upon athletic achievement. It is the two for one promotion that prompts me to say 'NO can do" on this one as it is presently outlined. As per Bylaws p. The identity issue was once considered an identity crisis by French Federation officials, who, at different stages of the s and s, aggressively encouraged the print and electronic media covering the tournament to use Roland Garros and only Roland Garros. We have Internet, Facebook. But actions, for the moment, speak louder than diplomacy, and the tournament is continuing to emphasize Roland Garros on multiple fronts. The official tournament Web site frenchopen. What exists now is rolandgarros. He said frenchopen. Nonetheless, a few key strokes shows who is winning the numbers game. But if English trumps French on the Internet, there are still small victories. It was a bit of a mess. The rub is that Roland Garros, the French fighter pilot for whom the stadium is named, was not much interested in playing or watching tennis. He was a rugby player, one who was killed when his plane was shot down in near the end of World War I. Friends later requested that the tennis stadium be named for him when it was built to stage the Davis Cup final between the United States and France. The French Open did not become open — accessible to professionals — until Until then it was known in English as the French Championships, which is much closer to its formal French name: Les Internationaux de France de Tennis. The French preference for Roland Garros as an alternative name for the tournament happened gradually, according to Christophe Fagniez, a general director of the French Tennis Federation. But it accelerated in the s as the event, under the leadership of the longtime federation president Philippe Chatrier, embarked on ambitious expansion and the promotion of the Roland Garros product line. Caloni said the dual identity of the tournament is not without a price. For now, he said, there is no such thing as a licensed product line labeled French Open, which means that fans in, for example, North America, Australia, Britain and British-influenced India have a dearth of merchandise bearing the tournament name they favor. Caloni said that was costing the French Open market share in the United States compared with the other three Grand Slam tournaments: But Caloni said the French federation was examining the possibility of starting a French Open line that would complement rather than compete with the Roland Garros line and probably be targeted at high-end consumers with the focus on luxury..

The three most common considerations of a student having been identified as a student-athlete are by text or spoken word, by apparel and by props.

The advice and best practice the Executive Staff can offer is to use young adults such as recent graduates who have no high school eligibility remaining. Another best practice recommendation is to simply use actors; students who are not athletes at all. That provides far greater liberties. Compliance and familiarization of amateur status rules--and the consequences of violations-- requires continued efforts by the membership to educate student-athletes and their parents.

WIAA rules allow for one year of eligibility for foreign students participating in exchange programs. Eligibility is not automatichowever, and schools must fill out a request for foreign student eligibility.

These students are required to meet existing WIAA rules in continue reading other than residence. All foreign students must have a physical conducted in the United States prior to participating in practice or Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning at a member school. Rules of Eligibility. This provision applies to students participating in foreign exchange programs.

Nude amateurs with big tits outdoors

Note 1: The foreign exchange program must assign students to host families by a method that ensures that no student, school or other interested party may influence the assignment for athletic or other purposes. Note 2: All foreign students must have a physical conducted in the United States prior to participating in practice or competition.

Transfer provisions apply identically to all students, both foreign and domestic. The WIAA approves eligibility for more than foreign students each year.

There are a limited number of foreign students that come into our schools without benefit of any exchange program. These students are treated the same as a domestic transfer without an accompanying move by parents. This means that these situations can be reviewed on a case-by-case basis; however, if there is no parental move in progress or no extenuating circumstances, the Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning rule will be applied.

Questions regarding foreign student eligibility should be directed to click to see more WIAA, The first, during the season of the sport: A student becomes ineligible in a sport for the remainder of the season for competing in a nonschool game, meet, or contest in the same sport during the season of practice and competition established by the school.

A second rule, addresses assembly during the school year is the preseason assembly rule: It is the philosophy of this Association that athletes should not be unreasonably restricted. The third part of the rule is the All-Star competition rule: A student becomes ineligible in a sport for a maximum of one year from date of last offense for participating in an all-star game or similar activity. The rule allows any individual student-athlete, with school approval, to participate in up to two non-school contests during the regular season in the same sport.

The non-school opportunities will not count against the individual maximum in that sport. During the season, athletes may participate in a skills contest with approval of the school. Specific skill contests punt, pass, and kick, shooting contests e.

The skill contest may not include physical contact or extreme fatigue as the actual sport competition. Fun runs are not considered skills contests. There can be no school coach involvement. All other eligibility rules including amateur status apply. Additionally, a student who was a member of a Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning team during the previous year may not delay reporting for the school team beyond the school's official opening day of practice in order to continue non-school training or competition.

RE — Art. WIAA rules prevent the recruitment of students for athletic reasons. The specific rule in question states: Schools are ultimately responsible for the eligibility of all of their students and the school needs to communicate rules and pay close attention to the circumstances that bring students to the school.

Obviously, public schools and private schools encourage students to enroll and this certainly can be done without violating the undue influence rule. The following gives some examples of acceptable and unacceptable practices. This list cannot be considered allinclusive, but should be helpful as an example.

It is the responsibility of schools to contact other schools and report any possible violations of WIAA rules. The WIAA is always willing to provide rules clarifications and, where necessary, will impose sanctions on schools and programs.

It is far better for schools to provide leadership and control to prevent problems than to have to deal with these issues after the fact. Athlete posters for doors during tourneys or tourneys meaning out of season is NOT allowed during the school year. Unrestricted and unlimited apply only during the summer.

Can we have player awards that are sponsored? For instance can we have a "Culvers Player of the Week? No gift or anything like that. Player of the game, the week, As you describe - there would be no peril for student. So long as when we look and see the business, product, service is percent 'endorsing' student, team, school I am an athletic trainer — at my facility we have a training program and would like to roll the program out at a reduced price to employees and their immediate family members. We are offering the program to all employees, so all students would be eligible for the same discount, whether an athlete or not. If I could get something in writing either supporting or denying this proposal, it would greatly help. At least not if is as straight forward as described; i. I have a potential donor that is interested in setting up a need based scholarship for students returning to our private high school, but they would like to base one of the criteria for awarding the scholarship on athletic participation during the previous year. My concern is that while we may be able to award a scholarship to a student coming into our school based on music or art or science interest, if we start to allow scholarships to be awarded based on interest in athletics, will that fall under the recruitment ruling? Your assessment and concerns are right on the mark. Financial aid that has anything to do with athletic interests, potential, ability or performance - would render the student ineligible for their entire HS career and place your school in a status of severe non-compliance. We have had experience in this area where zealous booster members have caused great distress for members on occasion. I would like to approach a local photographer to ask them to donate a complimentary photo for each of our honored student-athletes. Would we run into a problem giving each recipient a 5x7 photo? Can you approve this, or would it violate the amateur standing rule and the rule regarding gifts? We have a player that did not dress because of grades last nighty in our 1st tournament game. At mid term our code states they become eligible as soon as they correct the grade. At the end of the quarter or semester we follow the 1 week or 15 day scenario. Can't find this in the book and want to make sure we follow procedure - I believe they are ineligible for the remainder of the tournament. Please confirm. There are three types of rules: Keep in mind that athletes who are ineligible during the WIAA tournament for any reason may not appear in uniform, participate in warm-ups, and may not participate in the awards ceremony at the WIAA tournament p. In this question and situation, the athlete may return when they become academically eligible. Always apply your code as written. Just a quick question on 15 day ineligibility. I am sure I am right on this one, but I know the parent is going to be asking questions and I want to be prepared. A wrestler's 15 day ineligibility ends today because it is the 15th day. He is not eligible for regionals tomorrow because it is not a scheduled school day correct? His eligibility would resume on Monday. He becomes eligible on the 16th scheduled school day: Our district recently passed a policy that students be required to maintain a 2. The question that has been brought up is, what happens to the special ed students who try as they might, can't make this new GPA requirement. Is there anything that can be written in the IEP to allow them to participate in these activities and "outrank" the school policy? Some have said that if it's written in the IEP than it should be followed. But, this really doesn't relate to FAPE does it? I don't know if others have experience with this and if there has been any court cases that have set a precedence for something like this. I completely agree with the basic premise I read in your comments Your district may want to address the 2. It may be done either, individually, based on identified and specific needs in the IEP. It may be done as broad policy. Either way, it ought to be "spelled out" keep in mind that if you put a different standard then 2. We would NOT set aside the "no F" component. We would not accept failure for a student. As I recall, our expectations for waiving the gpa, included: We designed the model for weekly or bi-weekly feedback from teachers. The student was responsible to initiate all contacts between teachers, AD and coaches. We have one varsity soccer team, a red JV soccer team and a white JV soccer team, and a red freshman team and a white freshman team. I understand that academic ineligibility stemming from a fourth quarter failing grade shall result in the lesser of 21 calendar days beginning with the date of earliest competition September 14 or one third of the maximum games allowed in a sport. Is one third of the games allowed based solely on the varsity season schedule, or each schedule for each level? As an example, one third of the JV season is a different "date" for eligibility than one third of a varsity season. In turn, one third of the season in the JV red schedule is different than one third for the white schedule. Is it possible to have, five different dates of eligibility based on what one-third of a season is? Or is the one-third of the season based on the varsity schedule and, therefore, soccer has one "date" for eligibility. Understood is the lesser of 21 days or one-third. The 21 calendar days would be the same "count" for all, i. In so far as JV and varsity, the max number of games that can be scheduled is the same for all sports, e. You are correct to adjust figure for frosh. The max they are allowed is Thus one third is 5. We have a student who competed in wrestling during grades The family moved to Florida, while the wrestler moved to live and work with grandparents in Puerto Rico for one year. The wrestler did not receive any education for the year. The wrestler returned to our school, established residency with parents, and plans to complete his senior year. Is the wrestler eligible to compete as a "fifth year senior" having only completed six semesters of education? The wrestler will turn 18 during the upcoming school year. Not without a consecutive semester waiver. A student has the potential for up to eight consecutive semesters of eligibility beginning with grade nine. His consecutive semester "clock" or count begins when he began 9th grade. That he or the family chose to take a year off does not stop that count. In the most recent grade-reporting period. Grades go on transcripts at the end of each nine week term. But every three weeks we make available "progress reports. Now we have a new computer network grading program that does not allow these phrases to be used. For progress reports, we will have to give out actual letter grades now. Our code of conduct refers to grades at the end of each nine week term - the progress reports had no impact on eligibility. May we continue to consider the most recent grade reporting period to be the ones that occur at every nine weeks? Your dilemma is not unique. For added awareness and clarification, you might find a way to document that: Academic eligibility for all extra curricular activities shall be based on the actual nine week grade which is the grade that will appear on the student's permanent record of this term. This is just an idea. Bottom line, the "progress report" is not the "final" grade Does competition mean when practice starts, or when games start. I used the start of the season, and was questioned on it. We have the same wording in our code as the WIAA for fall sports. Earliest date of competition is the date of first game. Not the date practice may begin. See Handbook pgs. There is also a matrix for fall sport eligibility on the web and on p. Penalties for use of ineligible players is outline on p. I would like your input on the following situation. A student this summer transferred from our school to School X and wants to play football. In looking at his academic record for last semester, he received two failing grades from us. However, the student took two sessions of science in summer school at X High School and received a passing grade for both classes. The student failed both physical science and world cultures at our school. In looking at the bylaws it states a student may become eligible through summer school provided the courses made up are equivalent. The School X coach is asking me to determine whether or not the student would be eligible. How does one determine if the classes are equivalent in this case? My feeling is that the student would be eligible at X. Please note I am not sure how the science classes compare. If he failed three classes he'd need to make up at least two, etc. That's the "equivalent" number of F's that made him not eligible. If you were a "No F" policy, then the equivalent is two classes made up Under no circumstance could a student erase multiple failures with less then the same number of classes completed in summer. Also, it has not been interpreted to mean that if the student failed geometry, they must re-take geometry in the summer or even another math class for that matter. We are addressing number of failures and classes We have several students that have not done well in regular education classes that will be in an on-site GED program during the school year. In your opinion, are these students eligible to compete in extra-curricular activities? Provided these students are enrolled as full-time students, same as every other student, make the necessary grades not more then one F, etc. You can find the added definition for full-time student on p. I have a question regarding academic eligibility of a transfer student. The student transferring to our school passed all of his classes for the second semester, but had failing grades for two of the classes in the fourth quarter. Which grades take precedence for academic eligibility, the second semester grades or the fourth quarter grades? The WIAA does not determine whether a school must count the quarter or semester grade. That's the school's "call". Our only stipulation is that whatever you use to determine academic eligibility it is the "standard" and is used all of the time and by all sport participants. Not using the quarter grades for "this student or team" and the semester grade for the other student or team. If there is a trend, it might be to look at the quarter grades for sport eligibility. If eligibility is a "privilege" then some feel that maintaining that privilege is an earn as you go proposition, and that the quarter grade is the most accurate reflection of what the "student's doing now" in order to preserve the privilege of access to sport competition. In this situation the discussion revolves around whether to use semester grades or quarter grades, when a student is transferring, the "receiving school's" academic policy is applied regarding semester or quarter grade usage. But always apply the sending code for the determination of ineligibility. If the sending school is one failing grade and one quarter of ineligibility while your code is two failing grades and 15 scheduled school days of ineligibility, use the sending school's one failing grade and one quarter of ineligibility. In cases where there is a code of conduct issue lingering, the sending school's code applies. That's the code the student knew and "signed on to. Last year, we had foreign exchange students who were sophomores. They were members of a program and WIAA eligible. This year as juniors they returned and were not part of a program and, therefore, not WIAA eligible. If they return next year as seniors would they be eligible to participate? I am reading the rule stating that after one year of ineligibility students become eligible if attendance is continuous. Handbook, p. What is the rule on a club paying for part of a high school student's summer wrestling camp. See the Rules at a Glance. The WIAA recognizes a distinction between training and competing. Students must pay their own expenses, including transportation, to any nonschool out-of-season camps, clinics, or specialized training. Schools may pay expenses and provide transportation to similar in-season activities in that sport and during unrestricted contact days in the summer. This may include transportation, food, lodging and entry fees. A school may not become involved financially, through transportation or any other way in a student's nonschool participation outside the sport season and the five Board of Control approved unrestricted contact days in the summer. BL — Art. II, RE — Art. IV and Art. VI Note: Funds kept in school activity accounts are considered school funds. The only time camps may be paid for athletes is during the five unrestricted contact days and it must be available to any and all interested students. Coaches may not coach their athletes outside of the season. If your coaches work a non-school camp during the school year, their athletes could not work the same camp. Note, schools may not conduct camps during the school year out of season. See the following on the Rules at a Glance: So long as participation is voluntary and available to all interested students: There shall be no restrictions upon schools, school teams and school coaches grades relative to assembling in the summertime, for up to 5 days, which do not need to be consecutive. Unrestricted contact days must conclude no later than July A school may conduct a clinic for students in grades 8 and below, where high school varsity and junior varsity coaches may use some or all of their high school athletes as clinicians. This may be done for a maximum of six days during the summer when school is not in session and must conclude no later than July Clinics not utilizing athletes as clinicians may be conducted throughout the summer up to the start of school. School facilities may be used for nonschool programs, according to board of education policy, which can result in clinics being conducted, outside the season, by nonschool groups. The nonschool group must request the facilities from the board of education or governing board, through normal procedures and are encouraged to provide their own insurance protection. II and RE — Art. VI, Sect. I am aware that students from another district cannot participate in our open gyms during the summer, but what about camps. Can a girl from the neighboring district participate in a volleyball camp sponsored by our coach and intended for our district girls? Can our coach restrict it to only our girls, or can she promote it with other schools if she wants? How would any of these scenarios affect the contact days allowed for our coach? Here are some summer camp thoughts. It must be voluntary and not mandatory. Coaching restrictions apply. Camps during the five unrestricted days may take place after the last day of school and before July Schools may provide transportation, instruction, etc. Outside of the five unrestricted days, coaches may not coach athletes they will coach the next season. Schools may not conduct camps during the school year. If a reduced price is offered it must be provided to all participants. The only way for booster club funds to be used is to gift them to the school and the school to use booster gifts during the five unrestricted days. High school students may work a lower level camp as a clinician, but the camps may not be longer than six days and must be completed before July However, Captains' practices are not allowed during the school year. I am wondering if a booster club can cover the cost of a hotel room when players go to a team camp in the summer time? I am thinking of having my team attend a team camp in Green Bay, and while I know I cannot pay for their entry fee to the team camp, I am wondering if I can pay for the lodging at a hotel. In order to provide an accurate answer, I would need to know if the camp is part of your five unrestricted contact days or is not a part of the five unrestricted contact days. Then that and other school funds could be used to provide camp opportunity for - ALL - interested students. If the camp were not part of your unrestricted contact days, the answer would be "No. Students must pay their own expenses, including transportation to any non-school out-of-season camps. Logistics could be accommodated by having students cover their own cost for the bus transportation. If they wished to ride bus. All interested students could travel by bus if they desired, but would need to cover their own bus ticket costs to camp in this scenario. I am writing as the president on behalf of our wrestling club which is not associated with our school. We are a non-profit association organized to promote the sport of wrestling for ages pre-K - high school. Are we able to reimburse the athlete for their expenses to attend a summer camp held off-site from school? Actually to be held at another school district I've read under summer reminders at the Web site Also, what if the club is hosting a fundraiser event such as a car wash or brat fry - are the athletes able to split those profits and pay for their camp fees with that money? Our member schools have allowed reimbursement for some costs associated with competition and not camps or clinics. Competition would include meets or tournaments. Training would include practice, camps, or clinics. Schools may pay expenses and provide transportation to similar in-season activities in that sport and during unrestricted contact days in the sum- mer. The WIAA members have stated in the Rules of Eligibility page 38 Article VI, Section 2, 5, that any fees for entrance to the clinic must be paid for by the students or parents in order to not affect the amateur status of any participants. I read over the Handbook, the eligibility section, and could not find specific language for paying for entry fees to camps over the summer. We have a few parents that would like to do a fundraiser to raise some money to offset the cost of the camp. There are nine girls that are looking to go to a camp this summer and it is quite expensive. A few of the parents thought that if they were to do a fundraiser, they could help offset the cost for some of the families. Would this be a violation of amateur status? During the summer, if the fund-raised money is kept in a nonschool account and the fundraisers wished to cover the costs for all students interested in summer league play, they could cover costs associated with competition. If it is during your unrestricted five days, then the money could be gifted to the school and used during that time. Can our booster club give a student-athlete money to go to a summer camp such as a scholarship? Also, we do a fundraiser every year, can I use some of that money so a kid could go to a camp? Simple answer is no. See III- F of attached. Can the girl's soccer coach pay for a team camp with the girl's activity account. Similarly, if my softball coach wants to send her team to a clinic is this something she can pay for out of her activities account? The girls fundraise through working concession stands and I just wanted to double check to make sure that this is an appropriate way to pay for this team clinic. To begin, ALWAYS remember, once money is placed in a school account — it is — school money; regardless how it got there or who put it in. School monies can be used. If not a part of the unrestricted days, then — no; kids would need to pay their own way. Can hockey players be used to help coach a youth camp by demonstrating drills to the kids and working with lower level kids on skill development. This camp would be held before the start of the high school season and would be for players in elementary and middle school. The simple answer is yes. There are a number of caveats. Schools may not sponsor camps or clinics except in the summer. Students could be present and — volunteer - to assist parents — so long as school coaches were not present. School coaches could assist parents — but not when their HS team players are present. My volleyball coach would like to set up a camp for high school students during the week of August She knows she can not coach in the camp and another person would be in charge of the camp. Is there any restrictions with this request? The end result of this can be achieved within Association rules, fairly easily. There are caveats. Keep in mind that the time period your coach has identified as a desirable period for a camp is both outside the actual school season and outside the unrestricted contact dates. Bylaws do identify that school facilities can be used by non-school groups in accordance with school district policies Art. Additionally, the Rules of Eligibility Art. Some of the previous response can also be found at least partially addressed in the Rules At A Glance, Art. II, C and A, especially. Will high school girls be in any kind of violation if they choose to attend such a camp? The simple answer is 'No. There were two significant caveats contained in my response: First, students must cover their own expenses to camps and clinics at this time of year.. I am a varsity girl's basketball coach and I was just wondering what the regulations are if our booster club wanted to pay for athletic teams to go to a team camp? I know that I as a coach nor the school is allowed to pay but are there any restrictions from an outside source such as a booster club paying for players to go to camp? Or does this infringe on a "sponsor" so to speak in that it would look like someone is sponsoring players to attend camp? The school would typically make an announcement to notify all interested 'girls' who might want to have access to a camp opportunity. Can a high school, public or private, entertain a sports team or group of middle school students from another school at the high school and conduct either a sports related clinic or open house? Does it have to be the whole grade invited, or can a select group of students be targeted? Or in other words, do the rules prohibiting the singling out of high school students for school enrollment apply to middle school students? Example 1: A parochial middle school volleyball team is invited to the local public high school to observe and participate in a session with the high school volleyball team? Example 2: An entire 8th grade from a parochial middle school is invited to an open house during the school day at the private high school? Your school can legitimately provide a variety of opportunities to let middle school students know about you. But at this time of year — a member school can not sponsor a 'clinic". Would it be against WIAA rules, for a club to pay for a camp for it's high school wrestlers? The yes or no to this depends a bit on when the camp is going to be held. If this camp is held prior to the start of the school season, then the answer would be no. The school, then in turn — could "send their whole team to camp" if they chose. Rules of Eligibility text; Art. VI, Section 2C-5note Sr. High Handbook p. Can our basketball coach use fundraising money, raised by the basketball players, to pay an entrance fee into a summer basketball league and an AAU tournament? The money is located in a school activity account. For days outside those designated, 'no. I am a varsity head coach and want to hold a youth football camp at the school this summer. Do I need to do this prior to Aug. Lastly, if I can utilize the high schoolers at the camp, can I do this after Aug. You can use your HS athletes as clinicians BUT - if you wish to use your athletes as clinicians the camp must conclude no later then July There are colleges that offer "team camps" in which you can coach your team and participate against other teams. Is there anything in the WIAA Handbook that prohibits a high school team from practicing with another high school team during those contact days? And so long as involve- ment is voluntary and available to any interested students, you could work with another school. My high school team is going to a team camp this summer. Can the school provide transportation? If the camp is included in your five 'unrestricted contact days,' yes. If not a part of those contact days, no. Our football booster group would like to sponsor a bus to transport players to a football camp. If within your allowed contact days, yes. If not within the allowed contact days the students would need to buy a ticket. I am the head basketball coach at X. This summer, one of our volunteer coaches is thinking about holding a basketball camp for grades in his hometown of Y. He asked if I wanted to help out. The camp would be open to all of the surrounding schools. There are a couple dimensions to your question that should be addressed and clarified. First, "JV and varsity coaches are allowed to have contact with students until they actually enter 9th grade. Rules At A Glance, Art. I Second, if your camp took place between the end of school and July 31, AND you counted the camp as part of your five unrestricted contact days, you could coach your own players. If NOT part of your unrestricted days, neither you or the volunteer could have coaching contact with players you will coach next season. You can find a volume of this on our website: We have about 30 kids going for a four-day camp. This is not part of our schools approved contact days. The boosters felt this would help solve logistics for a lot of parents having to transport kids. As described answer would be "No. Logistics could be accommo- dated by having students cover their own cost for the bus transportation.. Due to the weather it was postponed until March Since the HS softball season has already begun can our players still attend the camp? Yes - and the school could even cover the costs - and your school's coaches could have contact, and school could transport, since it's in-season. ROE Art. Once the softball season begins on March 12 can our coaches and players be used to run a free softball camp for 5th through 8th graders? Coaches would instruct with the players helping with various drills. This could be possible and accomplished within the rules - but would need to find a non-school sponsor. The local youth baseball program is planning a camp for 5th through 12th graders spring training. They are planning to use the high school gyms. As the varsity coach, can I work this camp? Are there any other things at I should be aware of? You're going about it the proper way. As you will see in Article I of the Rules At A Glance "JV and varsity coaches are able to have contact with students until they actually enter 9th grade. However, during the school year, you are not able to have any coaching contact with stu- dents who are already in 9thth grade - except during the actual school season Mar. Two scenarios regarding money for kids who can't afford camps. The local tribal council wanting to give money for camps to tribal member athletes open to any tribal member. Character Ed. Would either of these be allowed? What if money was given to family and parent wrote the check? Not allowed. There is always the peril - when something comes to light later on and is painted in most evil of descriptions - that what seemed to be 'creative' compliance' is actually considered to be circumvention and not compliance at all. This sort of tidbit usually creeps up the 'morning of the tournament contest', unfortunately. Two, more legitimate solutions: If a student can't afford the camp, find them a legitimate job and pay them.. As described, an amateur status violation; career ending. Acceptable alternative: Donate what's needed to the school. School then owns and issues. Our football coach is taking his freshmen son to a Jeff Trickey camp. Can he transport other kids that are going? Not if HS kids. See Rules at a Glance, Art. I have a question regarding summer volleyball camps. I would like to have an outside organization conduct the camp this summer for my girls. We are not the most affluent of towns and money is short for most of my players. Having a camp run here of this nature would get a bit expensive for the majority of my players. I was approached by a member of our booster club with an offer to donate some money towards the camp to offset the cost for the athletes attending. The camp is open to all girls in our school so it would be a gender specific camp. Is this a permissible donation that would not violate any rules. The money that they would donate would go directly to the camp coaches and then the cost for the athletes would be figured out after that depending on the number attending. Please advise on this situation and ask any questions you may have of me as soon as you can. As described, this would not be a problem. Each student still covers their own costs of the camp, what ever they turn out to be. Be certain it is the same cost for all who attend. As the varsity coach can I work this camp? I get a lot of questions about this. However, during the school year, you are not able to have any coaching contact with students who are already in 9thth grade - except during the actual school season Mar. I have a question concerning open gyms. Is it OK for a soccer team to gather players for open gym prior to the regular season and have "captains practices" during the open gym? My understanding is that the coaches are only supervising, but the team captains for the upcoming season are running their teammates through drills and activities? Is it acceptable to have players running practices at open gyms if the coaches are only supervising? Captain's practices are permitted in the summer; not during the school year. Please see II-A and D of attached. Also See: A X baseball club has been formed and our head baseball coach wants to conduct two to three clinics for students in grades during the winter sports season. These clinics would be conducted by members of the X high school baseball coaching staff. No high school athletes will be involved in coaching these students. Is there any problem with our coaches conducting this clinic? The end result of this could be achieved within existing Bylaws — however, it may not be a 'school spon- sored' event. Bylaws Article II p. Not during school year. Our boys soccer coach has asked if a clinic can be conducted by a professional soccer player the week of Aug. Am I correct in telling our coaches they can't be a part of the clinic? Can our coach set up the camp? Registration, facility usage, etc A.: The opportunity - like when any other non-school provider like the YMCA creates programming - ought to be made known and available to any age appropriate students in the area interested in attending. To limit it to your school's prospective soccer players - is simply beginning the soccer season a week early. See Handbook, p. Also see: Regarding your coaches, they may not be involved, at least in so far as having any coaching contact with your school's soccer players. The fundamental rule is that outside of the five unrestricted days - coaches may not have coaching contact with students they will be coaching in the next school season. JV and varsity coaches can have contact with students until they actually enter 9th grade. Then, utilize recent grads and other 'summer' coaches who will not be coaching during the school season Coaches from A work with students from B, C, D. Coaches from B work with students from A, C, D, and etc. School resources, personnel, mail, staff, etc. Could you please answer the following question: High school A's soccer team has arranged for a July camp voluntary basis with a noncoach camp director. High school B from another city is using the same camp director for its camp. A and B would like to scrimmage each other as part of the camp scheduled activities. In all schools, there will be no high school coach involved in either camp training or scrimmages. Is this structure acceptable under WIAA guidelines? As you've described, this all could take place in July. Coaches from each school could be involved ST-C, etc. Please help me with the following scenario: A student has participated in volleyball for the past two seasons. While she has a valid physical for the upcoming school year, she is academically ineligible for the upcoming season until the student has met the required days of ineligibility. The student is not at a school where ineligibility can be erased through summer school grades. Is she eligible for summer contact sessions with the coach? The practice sessions are occurring at the school under the direct supervision of the coach. So far as the five unrestricted summer contact days and once the actual school season begins our rules would not prevent this. A student who is academically not eligible to compete may be allowed to practice. After reading the WIAA handbook and Rules at a Glance, I would like to check with you to see if my interpretation is correct on the following issue: However, an athlete may receive reimbursement or have paid for them by a booster group their entry fee into a summer league or team tournament. Am I correct in my interpretation and understanding? Also, would the discipline action be any different if it was an individual as opposed to a team that incurred an infraction? Great research and application. The unrestricted days in the summer can be looked upon almost as a "mini-school season. Then the "school" could cover the costs for a camp opportunity - so long as it was available to every kid in school who wished to attend. Same as no student may be denied access to your other school based offerings. I always discourage - ever giving cash or a check to a stu- dent. Not that it would be a violation when it's reimbursement for competition expenses Who's going to pay for "my daughter's" sum- mer league fees? I am running a speed and agility camp this summer geared toward high school athletes and Affinity is want- ing to give two "scholarships" or free camps to each of our high schools for athletes that are financially chal- lenge and in no other way could they go to a camp. Is this a violation of their eligibility? Yes — Don't go there. Our football coach has some questions as a result of a parent of one of his football players inquiring as to whether high school players are allowed to attend a Donald Driver Football Camp that is held on our grounds in June. All of the players are being allowed to attend free of charge complements of a company, as I understand it, owned by either a parent or grandparent of an incoming freshmen player. Two of our football staff coaches are being asked by the Donald Driver people to work the camp. Thank you for any help you can give me to clar- ify whether this is a legal possibility for our football players. So long as it is an acceptable non-school opportunity, i. If school is still in-session, coach contact restrictions must be observed. Use caution with the camp fees - A "free camp" opportunity would be acceptable so long as it is advertised as a "free camp" and so long as it is a free camp to all kids who come from all over your region not just free for your students. Otherwise, with respect to "camps, clinics, special training" See ROE , Art. Coaching restrictions are in effect during the school year. If you are still in school and your coaches work, be certain they understand they can not work with your own student athletes. If you are completely done with your school year and you wish to use this as your unrestricted contact days, your coaches may be involved. Can a parent or company pay the entry fee to sponsor a team in activities — for example a three on three basketball tournament? Simplest answer is "yes. Can be the biggest problem in summer and non-school competition. If the camp is part of the five unrestricted days which can be school sponsored - the "school" may sponsor the opportunity for all interested students. Boosters can always "gift" the school I am a high school baseball coach who runs youth camps in our community on March 11 and We want to ask our players to help out at the camp s which are for 1st-8th graders. Even though the camps start before our season, we feel it is important for our older players to bond with the younger kids in the community and be mentors. High school students at our school are asked to perform 40 hours of community service during their high school stay. Working these camps would allow them to earn community service hours. Is this permissible? We run the camps through Community Education. Simplest answer is "No. That's when you may use your athletes as clinicians. French speakers call the tournament, not just the stadium in which it is played, Roland Garros. Native English speakers, despite repeated attempts to convert them, still overwhelmingly favor French Open. But it is also a cultural divide: Europeans, with the exception of the British, strongly favor Roland Garros. So do South Americans, whose players have been major factors here through the years. French Open officials have long hoped that China — a late arrival to tennis fandom — would follow their lead. But they are increasingly bowing to the obvious. The identity issue was once considered an identity crisis by French Federation officials, who, at different stages of the s and s, aggressively encouraged the print and electronic media covering the tournament to use Roland Garros and only Roland Garros. We have Internet, Facebook. But actions, for the moment, speak louder than diplomacy, and the tournament is continuing to emphasize Roland Garros on multiple fronts. The official tournament Web site frenchopen. What exists now is rolandgarros. He said frenchopen. Nonetheless, a few key strokes shows who is winning the numbers game. But if English trumps French on the Internet, there are still small victories. It was a bit of a mess. The rub is that Roland Garros, the French fighter pilot for whom the stadium is named, was not much interested in playing or watching tennis. He was a rugby player, one who was killed when his plane was shot down in near the end of World War I. Friends later requested that the tennis stadium be named for him when it was built to stage the Davis Cup final between the United States and France. The French Open did not become open — accessible to professionals — until Until then it was known in English as the French Championships, which is much closer to its formal French name:.

I was wondering if it would be permissible that if I were to win any cash prize, that I could accept only the amount of entry for the race?
