Therefore it is important that you understand the NCAA rules and the consequences if any violations occur. Any misunderstanding or disregard for the rules may result in the levying of sanctions against a SBC member-institution's athletics program. The following are examples of possible sanctions:

  • Probation for a period of time.
  • Ineligibility for NCAA championship events.
  • Reprimand and/or censure.
  • Ineligibility for invitational and post season meets and tournaments.
  • Ineligibility for television programs involving live coverage for the sport involved.
  • Ineligibility for the university to vote on NCAA legislation or serve on any association committees.
  • Prohibition against participating in outside competition for a specified period of time for the sports teams involved.
  • Prohibition against recruiting for a specified period of time in the sport involved in the infraction.
  • Reduction in the number of athletic grants-in-aid awarded.
  • Please be aware that any athletic representative found in violation of NCAA rules may be banned from any association with the athletic department.
