What boosters can do
What boosters can do may depend on whether they are interacting with a prospective or enrolled student-athlete:
What boosters CAN do for or with ASU prospects:
- Attend high school, community college, and public events in which prospects are participating so long as they do not attempt to contact or recruit prospects while they are there.
- Continue established family relationships with prospects, their parents, and their relatives if the conversations are unrelated to Sun Devil Athletics and attendance at ASU.
- Accept calls from prospects.
- So long as the calls are not for recruiting purposes (e.g., not directed or arranged by SDA staff members); and
- There is no discussion of athletics during the call.
What boosters CAN do for or with ASU student-athletes:
- Speak with student-athletes at games, events, banquets, etc.
- Host an occasional home meal for a student-athlete or an entire team, but only if:
- The booster receives prior approval by the Compliance Office and head coach (through completion of necessary paperwork available here); and
- The meal occurs at the booster’s home or on the ASU campus, not at an off-campus restaurant.
- Send a birthday, graduation, or holiday greeting so long as the greeting does not include any money, gift cards, or presents.
- Accompany a student-athlete to a movie, play, sporting event, or other form of entertainment. The student-athlete must, however, pay his/her own expenses, including the cost of transportation, admission, food, etc.
- Employ a student-athlete so long as all of the steps outlined here are followed.
