      As you may know, the NCAA has made quite a few major changes to recruiting and rules about contacting juniors. These changes will be affecting your players and how they will be approached by collegiate staff. New rules that will be important to you and your student-athletes include:

      • Starting September 1, 2013 recruiting coaching staff members are allowed unlimited calls to the junior class. There will also be unlimited texting that will go along with the phone calls. We will also have access to the student-athletes parents via call or text.Personally, it is important for me that the student-athlete is not overwhelmed with the availability of contact that will be allowed. I want each student-athlete to be a student first and as a staff at UMKC we will be diligent in respecting your student-athletes time at school and conscious of the many activities they will be juggling throughout the school year.


      • From September 9th-29thwe may speak with and visit the student-athlete on their school campus (not during school hours) or at their respective homes.


      • A second contact period will also be in effect March 1st-April 3rdin 2014 as well as an added non-scholastic evaluation weekend in the spring.


      • Starting the Thursday after the final four,  Junior’s will be allowed to take official visits to universities, provided it is not during a dead period. This will give student-athletes an opportunity to visit campuses without the added expense out of their pockets.  This change pushes up the traditional official visit time frame by nearly 5 months!


      • During official visits, starting this year, we will also be allowed to pay for two parents travel expenses. Making decisions about your future takes careful thought and consideration and understanding what a “good fit” entails.

      Our goal is to inform and educate coaches, parents and players about change that will always be imminent.
