Student-Athlete's Parents

As the parent of a student-athlete it is important that you understand NCAA rules and regulations that apply both to your child and yourself. Below are some guidelines that you should be aware of throughout the recruitment process of your child and while your child is a student-athlete at Michigan:

  • Student-athletes have a pre-existing relationship with their parents. This means that parents that also serve as an athletic booster, or representative of Michigan's athletics interests, are recognized by the university as a parent first and a booster second.
  • Student-athletes and their parents may not agree to enter into an agreement with an agent during anytime that their son or daughter is a member of a Michigan athletics team.
  • Student-athletes, parents and relatives may not receive any extra benefits from an agent or anyone associated with an agent. Doing so could jeopardize the student-athlete's eligibility.
  • Student-athletes and their parents may not receive any extra benefits due to the student-athlete's participation in athletics at Michigan.
