About NCAA Division III
Colleges and universities in Division III place highest priority on the overall quality of the educational experience and on the successful completion of all students' academic programs. They seek to establish and maintain an environment in which a student-athlete's athletics activities are conducted as an integral part of the student-athlete's educational experience. They also seek to establish and maintain an environment that values cultural diversity and gender equity among their student-athletes and athletics staff.
What does Division III have to offer?
• Division III athletics offers student-athletes the opportunity to become well-rounded individuals who successfully integrate athletics and academics. Student-athletes are integrated into the student body, and they experience the full range of college life.
• Division III athletics departments place special importance on the impact of athletics on the participants rather than on the spectators. The student-athlete's experience is of paramount concern.
• Division III athletics feature athletes who receive no financial aid related to their athletic skills and athletic departments that are staffed and funded like any other department in the university.
• Division III athletics encourages the development of sportsmanship and positive social attitudes. Coaches and players treat each other with respect, and administrators work to foster a positive competitive environment.
• Division III athletics is committed to providing equitable athletics opportunities for both genders and gives equal emphasis to men's and women's sports.
• Division III athletics encourages participation by maximizing the number and variety of athletics opportunities available to student-athletes, placing primary emphasis on regional in-season and conference competition.
Gambling & Sports Wagering
The NCAA is proud of you for becoming a college student-athlete. It is proud of our country's long tradition of college sports. It wants to protect your bright future and the integrity of sports. That's why NCAA rules prohibit sports gambling of any kind by college student-athletes, coaches, trainers or anyone else involved with college sports.
As a college student-athlete, you must follow the rules of the NCAA. One of the rules, NCAA Bylaw 10.3, specifically prohibits sports gambling.
In clear, simple language, here's what the rule means:
You may not place any bet of any sort on any college or professional sports event.
You may not give information to anyone who does place bets on college or professional sports.
• NO wagers for any item (e.g., cash, shirt, dinner) on ANY professional or college sports event, even those that don't involve your college.
• NO sports "pools," even those run by your friends in the dorm.
• NO Internet gambling on sports events.
• NO fantasy leagues that award a prize and require a fee to participate.
• NO sports wagering using "800" numbers.
• NO exchange of information about your team with ANYONE who gambles. In other words, no information about injuries, new plays, team morale, discipline problems, or anything else.
NCAA rules are clear. The minute you are discovered to have made a bet of any kind on any college or professional sport ...Or to have given information to someone who does gamble ...
You are declared ineligible to compete in college sports. You are off the team.
If you accept or place a bet on any college or professional team other than your own, you will automatically be suspended for a minimum of one year and be charged with a season of competition.
If you accept or place a bet on any team at your school, you will be permanently ineligible. You risk losing your sports scholarship, being expelled from the school altogether, and/or being banned from other college and professional sports.
You also run the risk of being arrested and charged with a crime. That's because sports wagering is illegal in every state except Nevada. Sports bribery is illegal in every state. And even in Nevada, it is against NCAA rules for a student-athlete to make any wager on a sports event.
