Delaware State University, by virtue of its membership in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC), is responsible for ensuring complete compliance of all constituencies (i.e. university staff, student-athletes, alumni, fans, boosters and friends) with all NCAA and MEAC rules and regulations. Under NCAA rules, parents, alumni, fans and friends may be categorized as “representatives of athletics interests.”

Delaware State University strives for academic and athletic excellence. Pursuant to that goal is an on-going commitment to ethical conduct by all members of its staff and supporters. Even the simplest, inadvertent actions on the part of a booster or supporter may jeopardize the eligibility of student-athletes and/or prospects and the compliance of the university with NCAA or MEAC regulations.

extra benefits

athletic boosters

Extra benefits (as defined by the NCAA) – “any special arrangement by an institutional employee or representative of athletics interest to provide a student-athlete a benefit not expressly authorized by NCAA legislation. Receipt of such a benefit is not considered an NCAA violation if that same benefit is generally available to the institution’s students or their relatives and/or friends or to a particular segment of the student body determined on a basis unrelated to athletics ability.”

The NCAA broadly defines a “booster” as an individual, agency, entity or organization who is known by an institution to: | Have participated in or been a member of an agency that promotes the institution’s intercollegiate athletics program | Have made financial contributions to the athletics department or a booster organization for the department | Have been involved otherwise in promoting the institution’s athletics program | Have been a season ticket holder | Have provided benefits to student-athletes or their relatives or friends

Extra Benefits include, but are not limited to: | cash or loans in any amount | co-signing or arranging a loan | gifts or free services (e.g., airline tickets, cash, restaurant meals) | use of an automobile | rent free or reduced cost housing | money for, or a guarantee of, bail or bond | employment of a student-athlete at a higher rate than the wages paid for similar work | payment to a student-athlete for work not performed | transportation (aside from transportation related to an occasional home meal) | tickets to an athletics, institutional or community event | financial aid for a post-graduate education | promise of employment after college graduation | invitations to your home or summer home for purposes other than an occasional meal Please do not hesitate to contact DSU Compliance with any questions.

employment rules Delaware State University and its Director of Athletics ask that all boosters, prior to employing or arranging for the employment of a prospect or enrolled student-athlete, check first with the DSU Athletics Department. The department is permitted to make arrangements for summer employment for prospects prior to their enrollment as freshmen and to enrolled student-athletes during summer and semester breaks. Accurate record keeping must be maintained regarding employment. Therefore, the Department of Athletics asks for your cooperation. | A booster is prohibited from providing employment transportation for prospects or student-athletes unless such transportation is available to all employees. | A booster is permitted to pay student-athletes employed for work actually performed and at a rate commensurate with the going rate for similar services in the community or business.

I’m an Alumnus, am I a Booster? Not necessarily. Not all Delaware state alumni are considered boosters. Likewise, a booster does not have to be a graduate of Delaware State. Boosters meet at least one of the criteria listed above. Thus, an individual who has ever made a financial contribution to the Athletics Department is a booster. In a general sense, a season ticket holder in any sport at any time is a booster. Members and financial supporters of any Delaware State athletic organization are boosters. These are only a handful of examples of typical “boosters” who may be affiliated with an athletic program. Many additional scenarios exist, but, regardless of a booster affiliation with the university, it is important that all supporters follow NCAA rules as they interact with prospects, current student-athletes, their families and friends. What you cannot do | A booster is prohibited from making in-person, on-or off-campus recruiting contacts, or written or telephone communication with a prospect or the prospect’s relatives or legal guardians. | A booster is prohibited from contacting any enrolled student-athlete at another institution for the purpose of encouraging transfer to Delaware State University and participation in its athletics program. If a prospect approaches a DSU booster regarding the athletics program, please explain that NCAA rules prohibit such a discussion and suggest to the prospect that he/she contact the head coach of the sport for more information. | A booster is prohibited from contacting the prospect’s coach, principal or counselor for the purpose of obtaining information about the prospect. | A booster is prohibited from picking up film or transcripts from the prospect’s educational institution. | A booster is prohibited from entertaining a prospect and/or relatives and friends of a prospect at any site, either onor off-campus. | In addition, a booster is prohibited from providing tickets at no or reduced cost to any Delaware State home or away athletic or non-athletic event for prospects, their relatives or friends. Only the DSU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics can provide complimentary admissions to prospects and only for HOME events. | A booster is prohibited from paying or arranging for transportation for a prospect and/or relatives and friends of a prospect to visit campus. While it is permissible for a friend or neighbor to transport a high school or community college student who is NOT an athlete to the campus, NCAA regulations prohibit the activity for a prospect. What you can do | A booster is permitted to send newspaper clippings or any other information regarding a prospect to the respective Delaware State coaching staff. | A booster is permitted to attend high school or community college athletic(s) events. You simply cannot have any contact with prospects or relatives and/or friends. | A booster is permitted to continue established family relationships with friends and neighbors. Contact with sons and daughters of these families is permitted as long as they are not made for recruiting purposes. | A booster is permitted to have a telephone conversation with a prospect ONLY if the prospect initiates the call. However, the booster is not permitted to have a recruiting conversation with the prospect and an institutional staff member cannot prearrange the call.

DOVER, DELAWARE Visitors to Kent County, Delaware are pleasantly surprised by the variety of historical and cultural attractions, beautiful farmland and coastal scenery, and curious mix of old traditions and modern high-tech culture. In Kent County, visitors can find Amish buggies on city streets, delicate shorebirds and giant C-5 Galaxy military cargo planes, quiet museums and exciting NASCAR races, arts and antiques, Colonial history, slots and harness racing. Dover, the capital of the First State, invites you to experience life in a small American city – history, tax-free shopping and ambiance, all in a clean safe and friendly environment. You can spend the day shopping or strolling the quaint tree-lined streets to take in the city’s historic architecture, and spend the evenings at the theater or trying your luck at a gaming facility. You can step back in time, literally, by standing on the very corner where in 1787, delegates to Delaware’s Constitutional Convention ratified the U.S. Constitution – thus giving Delaware its “First State” moniker. The area’s collection of small towns as well as the natural beauty of places such as Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge, provide

hours of fun and adventure for visitors of all ages. Dover’s central location in Delaware makes Kent County the perfect place for regional meetings and conventions, and a great overnight destination for tours of the state. Wilmington and the Brandywine Valley attractions are only one hour’s drive to the north. Delaware’s beach resorts, including Lewes, Bethany, and Rehoboth, are only one hour’s drive to the south. Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. are all within a two-hour drive. Kent County puts you right in the middle of the charm and excitement of “America at its Best.” ATTRACTIONS Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge is a 16,000-acre haven along the Delaware Bay coast east of Smyrna, with salt marshes, ponds, fields, and forests. Visitors come from all over the world to see the variety of migratory shorebirds and waterfowl that stop to feed at the refuge, an important feeding stop on the Atlantic Flyway. OUTDOOR ACTIVITES The Delaware Bay, just East of Dover, offers some of the best fishing and crabbing in the region. The bay serves as a breeding DOVER AIR FORCE BASE Dover Air Force Base is important to the country’s defense, as it represents one-fourth of the nation’s strategic airlift capacity. Approximately 7,000 people are stationed at the DAFB. Dover is home to 36 giant C-5 Galaxy cargo planes, which are used to transport troops and equipment wherever they are needed around the world. The C-5 is the largest airplane in the U.S. military. Each plane is nearly as long as a football field, and could carry six motor coaches in its hold. The base cargo terminal known as the “Superport” is the largest anywhere in the US military, processing more tons of cargo than Kennedy airport in NY. The Air Mobility Command (AMC) Museum on the DAFB has over 24 aircraft on display, and features more multi-engine aircraft than the National Air & Space Museum in Washington, DC. Veteran aircraft on display include a C-47 “Gooney Bird” that dropped paratroopers over Normandy on D-Day.

In 2004, under the leadership of Board Chair Dr. Scott D. Miller (President of Wesley College), a strategic alliance was formed to partner the resources of Wesley College, Delaware State University, and The Friends of the Capital Theater, to maximize usage and position the historic treasure as the premiere performing arts center south of Wilmington. In January 2007, the relationship was formalized with the three becoming equal partners in the operation, management and programming of the Center.
