Super Bowl Sports Wagering Reminder Notice
Dear NCAA student-athletes, coaches and administrators:
With the Super Bowl coming soon, we wanted to take this time to remind all student-athletes, coaches and administrators of the NCAA's policy on gambling.
- The NCAA membership has adopted specific rules prohibiting athletics department staff members and student-athletes from engaging in gambling activities as they relate to intercollegiate or professional sporting events.
- NCAA member colleges and universities have defined sports wagering as putting something at risk, such as an entry fee, with the opportunity to win something in return. Because of this, student-athletes, coaches and administrators may not participate in competitions where there is both a required entry fee and an opportunity to win a prize.
If you have any questions regarding this material, please do not hesitate to contact Mark Strothkamp, NCAA associate director of enforcement, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 317/917-6222.
