Coaches – Student-Athlete Participation Policy No student is required to participate in one sport in order to participate in a different sport. Coaches – Roster Policies and Procedures The Athletic Department's Compliance Office is the sole keeper official team rosters. Team rosters are managed on a daily basis by the Compliance Office based on information submitted from head coaches. Team rosters maintained by the Associate Athletics Director are the sole source for filing annual federal government and NCAA reports and surveys. Head Coaches are expected to know who is listed on their official team roster at all time. A student is not a member of an athletic team until their name has been formally submitted (electronically) to the Assistant Athletics Director via the "Change In Status" form. Team rosters are maintained via the NCAA Compliance Assistant (CA) software. Head coaches have 24-hour access to this web-based software. One option to review a team's roster is to run a report via NCAA CA known as: COACHES: 2012-2013 Permission To Practice & Compete Authorization List For Team. Head coaches are expected to notify the Compliance Office if a student name is missing from their team's report or a student-athlete has left the team but whose name is still listed as an active team member. The assistant athletic director for compliance and the assistant athletics director for academic support does not have responsibility for maintaining team roster status. A request from any of the various offices within the Athletics Department (i.e. academic support, athletic training, equipment room, sports information, and strength and conditioning) for a team list run the risk of for obtaining inaccurate information in the event that a coach has neglected to formally submit a request to Compliance Office to have a student added or deleted from the official team roster. Team roster reports listed on the website www.quinnipiacbobcats.com are compiled and maintained by the sports information staff in consultation with the Compliance Office. The sports information staff will not add a student's name or remove a student-athlete's name from the website's team roster unless informed in writing from the Compliance Office. The compliance staff electronically notifies university staff members when changes are made to a team's roster. No Rosters will be displayed on the Athletics web-site until the NCAA Eligibility and Squad List has been approved and signed by the compliance staff. This usually occurs prior to the first date of competition. Coaches - NCAA Compliance The head coach is accountable for all areas of compliance as it relates to their sport. At the beginning of each year, a Compliance Policy and Procedures Manual will be issued to each Head Coach. Interpretations, rules citations and eligibility forms will be enclosed. All coaches (paid or not) are expected to take and pass the NCAA Recruiting Exam each academic year. All questions regarding the eligibility of our student-athletes should be forwarded to Tracey Flynn, Associate Athletic Director for Compliance and Student Services. This involves NCAA Squad Lists, Official and Unofficial Visits, Amateurism, NCAA Clearinghouse for freshmen, continuing eligibility for all returning student-athletes, transfer student-athletes, and all eligibility and compliance forms as it relates to Quinnipiac University policies. As well, head coaches are required to record and present to the compliance staff your recruiting schedule and your practice schedule before the start of the academic year. Page 22
