Student-Athlete Employment Policy


A student-athlete employment registration form must be completed and submitted to the compliance office prior to being employed.  Any earnings may not be based on the publicity, reputation, fame, or personal following that the student-athlete has obtained because of athletics ability.  Compensation must be only for work actually performed and at a rate commensurate with the going rate in that locality for similar services.


Fee-For-Lesson Instruction

A student-athlete may receive compensation for teaching or coaching sport skills or techniques in his or her sport on a fee-for-lesson basis, provided:

·    Institutional facilities are not used;

·    Playing lessons shall not be permitted;

·    The institution obtains and keeps on file documentation of the recipient of the lesson(s) and the fee for the lesson(s) provided during any time of the year;

·    The compensation is paid by the lesson recipient (or the recipient's family) and not another individual or entity;

·    Instruction to each individual is comparable to the instruction that would be provided during a private lesson when the instruction involves more than one individual at a time; and

·    The student-athlete does not use his or her name, picture or appearance to promote or advertise the availability of fee-for-lesson sessions. 

Camp/Clinic Employment

A student-athlete may be employed by UNCW, by another institution, or by a private organization to work in a camp or clinic as a counselor, unless otherwise restricted by NCAA legislation. Out-of-season playing and practice limitations may restrict the number of players from the same institution who may be employed in that institution's camp.

A student-athlete who is employed in any sports camp or clinic must meet the following requirements:

·    The student-athlete must perform duties that are of a general supervisory nature in addition to any coaching or officiating assignments; 

·    Compensation provided to the student-athlete shall be commensurate with the going rate for camp or clinic counselors of like teaching ability and camp or clinic experience and may not be paid on the basis of the value that the student-athlete may have for the employer because of the athletics reputation or fame the student-athlete has achieved.  It is not permissible to establish varying levels of compensation for a student-athlete employed in a sports camp or clinic based on the level of athletics skills of the student-athlete;

·    A student-athlete who only lectures or demonstrates at a camp/clinic may not receive compensation for his or her appearance at the camp/clinic.
