Spring 2020 Eligibility
SPRING 2020 SPORT ELIGIBILITY
This applies to all student-athletes for any spring sport during the time period of May 16, 2019 – May 15, 2020, regardless of whether the student was identified with an NAIA institution at the time of competition or in the Spring of 2020.
Q: We have a baseball player who played in a chargeable league last summer 2019 and into the fall 2019. We knew it was a chargeable league, but we expected that he’d also be playing for our school in spring 2020, and it would all be rolled into one season of competition. What happens to him now?
Q: There is a spring sport student-athlete on our campus who competed Spring 2020, but isn’t going to pass all 12 institutional credit hours in which she was enrolled. Can she use the ‘first time participant’ exception to the 24/36-Hour Rule (Article V, Section C, Item 6) for Fall 2020 certification? (Added 4/17/2020)
