Waiver granted to allow basketball instruction by non-coaching staff members this summer

The Division I Council Coordination Committee on Wednesday approved a waiver that will allow two non-coaching staff members in basketball to conduct instructional, on-court activities during the eight-week summer access period. No more than four coaches and noncoaching staff members combined can participate in these activities at any time.  This action also allows the noncoaching staff members to participate in skill-instruction activities as practice players.

The change will be effective starting June 4 and applies to the 2021 summer access period only. The committee supported the changes due to the increased need for countable coaches to be recruiting after a dead period that lasted more than a year and the likely larger number of new players on teams for 2021-22 because of the change in transfer rules
