For WCU Boosters

There's lots of misinformation out there about who the NCAA considers a "booster" (officially known as a representative of athletics interest).  Why is this important? The NCAA prohibits boosters from contacting recruits, and this includes all manner of electronic communication. To do so, is a recruiting violation.

Here are three important things to know about the NCAA definition of a booster:
1. A WCU season ticket holder is considered a booster.
2. Anyone who contacts a recruit to encourage that person to attend a particular university (i.e. Western Carolina) instantly becomes a booster of the university.
3. Once a person becomes a booster, they remain a booster forever.

The bottom line is that while fans are not by definition considered to be boosters, they turn into a booster the moment they contact a recruit by trying to influence the recruit to attend that school.

Message Boards:
WCU Boosters participating on a message board are not permitted to write, call, instant message, text, chat with, or e-mail a WCU prospect. Some think that it's okay to contact a prospect once they sign a National Letter of Intent. However, that signing does not change the fact he or she is still a prospect and all prohibitions against booster contact continue to apply until the prospect in enrolled as a student at Western Carolina.. Some people mistakenly think that because a person is not a graduate of the university (WCU) or a season ticket holder, it is okay for them to contact a prospect.

However, part of the NCAA's definition of a booster includes anyone who contacts a recruit on behalf of the institution. Therefore, as soon as someone on a message board e-mails or sends a message out to a recruit, they automatically become a booster and are subject to the NCAA rules prohibiting such contact.

Social Networking:
Boosters are not permitted to use social networking websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace to contact or otherwise attempt to correspond with prospects. This includes, but is not limited to using the inbox/e-mail feature, instant messaging, or direct messaging.

Bottom Line - Please don't make inappropriate contacts with "prospects" you find listed on this forum (or any other prospect, listed here or not).
