PLEASE SUPPORT THIS PETITION:

It is the only petition that will be read by the NCAA BOARD of Directors who have the POWER TO OVERTURN NCAA LEGISLATION. Every member on the NCAA Board of Directors is listed  below at the very bottom of this petition.

As a Single Parent/Mother of a high school student at Detroit Cass Tech (Donovan People-Jones) here in the City of Detroit I am initiating this Petition on behalf of all students and parents around the country and even Canada. If you can relate to the struggles of being a parent and encouraging your child to do all they can to prepare for college scholarship opportunities,  or if you know the importance of using athletics as a way for high school students to earn a college scholarship please please read the message below explaining what is happening to our youth.

On Friday April 7th The SEC, ACC, PAC12, BIG12, Sunbelt and MWC conferences voted not to allow FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) coaches to work camps at sites away from their campuses.  This new rule will restrict and reduce educational opportunities for high school students and their parents by lowering the opportunities for youth to showcase their athletic talents and earn a college scholarship. If college coaches are only allowed to work camps on their campus there will be far less scholarship offers to high school students in the summer of 2016.  This will in turn have a disproportionate impact on parents in the class of 2017 because:

-1.  The effective immediate date of the NCAA ruling means they will not be able to see multiple college coaches the summer prior to their last year of high school

-2.  The conflicting institutional camp schedule makes it impossible for students to attend multiple camps

3.  The majority of students and parents that this affects come from financially disadvantaged backgrounds. 

 

Our goal is to raise awareness to key decision makers within the NCAA governance structure and urge them to act in a manner that is in the best interests of students. 

Our solution is to encourage the NCAA Division I Board of Directors to withhold confirming the vote in favor of proposal 2015-59 by the NCAA’s Division 1 Council. 

We need your help in two ways:

1.      Sign the petition today so that we can overturn this legislation .

2.      Share this petition via email and on every social media platform you have.

This Petition will go to every member on the NCAA Board of Directors listed below. Please include #changencaa with your comment.
