Q: If a coach invites you to camp, will they cover the cost? Does that count as an Official Visit?
A: No, all campers – regardless if invited or offered scholarships already or not – must pay the same price for camp. The NCAA mandates that it’s… “Impermissible to provide a reduced or free admission to an athletics award winner or any individual being recruited by the institution.” All camp participants must pay the same fees.
Camps are a great investment and often worth the cost. If you are unable to attend, for financial or scheduling reasons, be open with the coach and let them know. “Coach, I’m very interested in your school but I don’t know if I can afford coming to camp.” They understand but at least know that you have interest in their program and would like the recruitment to move forward and continue.
