2 of D On behalf of the University of Delaware, we would like to thank you for your tremendous support of our athletics program. The University of Delaware has enjoyed a long and storied tradition of excellence in its athletics program. The cornerstone of that tradition is our institution s integrity and our resolve to strive for competitive excellence while maintaining compliance with NCAA rules and regulations. As an institution, we are dedicated to reaching the highest levels of success, both in the classroom and on the playing fields, while upholding our integrity. The University of Delaware is responsible for ensuring that members of the faculty, staff, coaches, student-athletes, alumni, donors, boosters, friends, and all other supporters of Delaware Athletics comply with all applicable NCAA rules and regulations. Your compliance with the NCAA rules and regulations is crucial to the welfare of the University of Delaware and most importantly, its student-athletes. This manual has been developed by the University of Delaware s Department of Athletics to provide you with a general understanding of NCAA rules and regulations. The information included in this manual is an attempt to equip you with basic definitions and permissible and impermissible activities. As you review this manual, please keep in mind that this publication does not include all applicable NCAA rules and regulations. The University of Delaware is committed to compliance with all CAA and NCAA rules and regulations. Therefore, it is critical to Ask Before You Act. Additional information can also be found at or by contacting the Athletics Office at the University of Delaware. Thank you for your continued interest and support of the University of Delaware Department of Athletics. Sincerely, Eric Ziady Director of Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreation Services
