  • Once a player has committed to a team during the NCVA sanctioned season, club directors and coaches from other NCVA clubs must respect the player’s commitment and cease recruiting the player. If a recruiter contacts a player who has signed a commitment to another team, the player must notify the recruiter of the commitment. After notification, the recruiter shall not contact that player or the player’s family.
  • A recruiting violation occurs when an NCVA registered club director and/or coach from one (1) NCVA registered club makes initial verbal or written contact with an athlete, or the athlete’s parents, from another NCVA registered club with the intent to persuade the player to leave the present club and join another club.
  • The suggested maximum penalty may include, but is not limited to, a monetary fine and/or a suspension of NCVA membership for a period of one (1) year, beginning on the date of the final ruling.
  • If a club director or coach is found guilty of committing a recruiting violation, the guilty party may make an appeal. A special Board of Inquiry Committee will hear the appeal and will make a ruling. The decision of this Committee will be final.
  • If a player or parent makes the initial contact, a club director or coach may answer questions and inform the player or parent about the club’s specific program without fear of committing a recruiting violation. It is strongly recommended that all club directors and coaches refrain from making negative comments concerning other clubs or their staff.
  • A player who has committed to a club and then wishes to transfer to another club must follow the NCVA’s Procedure for Player Transfer. This is irrespective of the length of a player’s membership with that club.

The following sanctions apply directly to the person(s) violating the policy.  The penalty for the first violation will be suspension from all NCVA/USA competition for a minimum of one (1) week up to a maximum of one (1) month, depending on the severity of the violation. Multiple offenses arising from the same incident (multiple players on the same team, e.g.) will incur separate penalties. 

The penalty for the second violation will be suspension from all NCVA/USA competition for a minimum of one (1) month up to a maximum of one (1) year, depending on the severity of the violation.  Multiple offenses arising from the same incident (multiple players on the same team, e.g.) will incur separate penalties.

All suspensions begin on the date of the first competition following the violation for the penalized person(s).  All to begin with the first tournament of the season. 

If any person fails to adhere to the terms of a sanction, the individual will be suspended from NCVA competition and National-Level events for one (1) calendar year and subject to a lifetime ban.  Furthermore, the coaching staff of the team on which the person is registered will be suspended from NCVA competition and National-Level events for one (1) calendar year and subject to a lifetime ban.  In the event the individual is the club director, all coaches in the club will be suspended from NCVA competition and National-Level events for one (1) calendar year and subject to a lifetime ban.
