Occasional Meals

NCAA legislation allows coaches to provide occasional meals to student-athletes under certain circumstances.  Such meals are allowed only on “infrequent and special occasions” and must be held in ASU’s “locale.”  Coaches are allowed to provide reasonable local transportation to the occasional meals.  To track meals across sports and to ensure compliance with NCAA legislation, SDA coaches are required to submit an Occasional Meal Approval form (available in ARMS) and receive approval from the Compliance Office before hosting an occasional meal.  Coaches are asked to submit their requests at least 24 hours before their proposed meals.
