NCAA Ruling on extending Eligibility of Spring Sports Student-Athletes effected by COVID-19

March 30, 2020 6:50pm

Schools can authorize an additional season of competition and an extension of their period of eligibility

 

The Division I Council on Monday voted to allow schools to provide spring-sport student-athletes an additional season of competition and an extension of their period of eligibility.

Members also adjusted financial aid rules to allow teams to carry more members on scholarship to account for incoming recruits and student-athletes who had been in their last year of eligibility who decide to stay. In a nod to the financial uncertainty faced by higher education, the Council vote also provided schools with the flexibility to give students the opportunity to return for 2020-21 without requiring that athletics aid be provided at the same level awarded for 2019-20. This flexibility applies only to student-athletes who would have exhausted eligibility in 2019-20.

Schools also will have the ability to use the NCAA’s Student Assistance Fund to pay for scholarships for students who take advantage of the additional eligibility flexibility in 2020-21.

Division I rules limit student-athletes to four seasons of competition in a five-year period. The Council’s decision allows schools to self-apply waivers to restore one of those seasons of competition for student-athletes who had competed while eligible in the COVID-19-shortened 2020 spring season

The Council also will allow schools to self-apply a one-year extension of eligibility for spring-sport student-athletes, effectively extending each student’s five-year “clock” by a year. This decision was especially important for student-athletes who had reached the end of their five-year clock in 2020 and saw their seasons end abruptly.

“The Council’s decision gives individual schools the flexibility to make decisions at a campus level,” said Council chair M. Grace Calhoun, athletics director at Penn. “The Board of Governors encouraged conferences and schools to take action in the best interest of student-athletes and their communities, and now schools have the opportunity to do that.”

Winter sports were not included in the decision. Council members declined to extend eligibility for student-athletes in sports where all or much of their regular seasons were completed.

The Council also increased the roster limit in baseball for student-athletes impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the only spring sport with such a limit.

Arizona Diamondbacks continues to donate more money to community emergency relief efforts

 

March 30, 2020

Second donation brings total to more than $1 million

 

PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation announced the donation of an additional $500,000 to immediately assist in helping those most vulnerable during the current national emergency, bringing the franchise’s current total to more than $1 million.

“The needs in our community continue to grow, particularly in the healthcare industry and we feel it’s important to continue to give back to those heroes,” said D-backs Managing General Partner Ken Kendrick. “We can’t help but be inspired by those who are sacrificing so much right now to keep us all safe and we want to continue to inspire others during these unprecedented times.”

“We are fortunate to not only be in a position to continue to give back, but to be in touch regularly with those in the medical field who can help distribute these funds in a meaningful way,“ said D-backs President & CEO Derrick Hall. “Whether it is personal protective equipment, critical resources to support healthcare personnel or technology to provide virtual visits for those currently receiving care, we believe this money can make an immediate impact.”

The Foundation’s initial donation of $550,000 last week was spread among numerous non-profit organizations that focus on emergency food supply and distribution as well as support for children of working healthcare professionals. This current donation will address that growing need in addition to benefitting those in the medical/healthcare fields.

The Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation and team will continue to monitor the situation in the event additional assistance can be made available, if necessary.
