Recruiting Calendar 2018-2019 “Dead Period vs. Quiet Period”

College Golf Camps

NCAA rules can be very confusing for junior golfers.  You need experts to answer the questions you have.  NCAA Men’s golf programs will have the following schedule effective August 1, 2018.

To be clear, NCAA coaches are allowed to attend camps during “Quiet Periods” but not junior golf tournaments.  Will you be competing in a junior golf tournament where NCAA coaches are not allowed?

College Golf Camps allows coaches to engage with junior golfers over a 2-3 day period.  It’s a wonderful opportunity to learn, compete, showcase, interact and gain exposure to college golf. 

Definitions:
“Dead Period” – During a dead period a college coach may not have face-to-face contact with college-bound student-athletes or their parents, and may not watch student-athletes compete or visit their high schools. Coaches may write and telephone student-athletes or their parents during a dead period.

“Quiet Period” – During a quiet period, a college coach may only have face-to-face contact with college-bound student-athletes or their parents on the college’s campus. A coach may not watch student-athletes compete (unless a competition occurs on the college’s campus) or visit their high schools. Coaches may write or telephone college-bound student-athletes or their parents during this time.
