  • Evaluation Period: Coaches may watch prospective student-athletes compete, visit their high schools, and write or telephone prospective student-athletes or their parents. However, a college coach may not have face-to-face contact with prospective student-athletes or their parents off the institution's campus at this time.
  • Quiet Period: Coaches may not have face-to-face contact with prospective student-athletes or their parents, and may not watch prospective student-athletes compete or visit their high schools. However, it is permissible to make in-person recruiting contacts on the institution's campus. Coaches may also write or telephone prospective student-athletes or their parents during this time.
  • Dead Period: Coaches may not have face-to-face contact with prospective student-athletes or their parents, and may not watch prospective student-athletes compete or visit their high schools.

Recruiting Rules:

Coaches recruiting activities with prospective student-athletes (e.g., providing recruiting materials, calling on the telephone, contacting off-campus) are governed by NCAA recruiting rules, which limit these communications based on the prospective student-athlete's year in school. The NCAA recruiting overview chart for all sports can be found here.

Recruiting Calendars:

Recruiting calendars help to promote the well-being of prospective student-athletes and coaches and ensure competitive equity by defining certain time periods in which recruiting may or may not occur in a particular sport.
