Division II and Division III membership approved sand volleyball as a championship Saturday at the 2015 NCAA Convention, allowing it to advance from the emerging sports for women list to become a full-fledged NCAA championship in spring 2016.
Despite some debate, the Division III Management Council has come to agree with the Division III Recruiting Working Group regarding a proposal that allows coaches to contact recruits on site on any day at multi-day athletic competitions. The original proposal allows coaches to speak with potential student-athletes at any time during the competition as long as they or their coaches consent.
Sand volleyball moved a step closer to becoming an NCAA championship Monday when the Division I Legislative Council approved a measure to establish a national collegiate championship in the sport. The additional championship also must be approved by Division II and Division III.
