June Scholastic Division I Men's Basketball Events Criteria

By NFHS on May 22, 2019 nfhs news Print

The NFHS has approved 30 Scholastic Basketball Evaluation Events involving 41 NFHS-member state associations during the last two weekends in June. Nineteen different states will be hosting events during the June 21-23 and June 28-30 weekends, with several states hosting events during each weekend. During these two weekends, Division I college coaches will be able to evaluate high school student-athletes in an education-based setting with no involvement of third-party agents.

WHAT

Scholastic events in June must be:

  • Approved by the National Federation of State High School Associations; and
  • Organized and conducted exclusively by the applicable NFHS-member state high school association and/or state high school basketball coaches association, or if there is no state high school basketball coaches association, the state high school coaches association.

 

WHERE

Per NCAA legislation, June scholastic events must occur at an educational institution (e.g., middle school, high school, college) other than an NCAA Division I institution.

WHEN

June 21-23, 2019 (Friday 6 p.m. - Sunday 4 p.m.)*

Events are scheduled when NCAA Division I men’s basketball coaches are permitted to observe recruits participating in athletic activities.
