Top agenda items

Associated Press

Possible agenda items for the NCAA's board of directors, which meets this week in San Diego. The Leadership and Legislative Councils are expected to vote on these issues before Saturday's board meeting. The legislation would:

n Limit which recruiting materials could be sent to through the mail and electronically. Many restrictions would be lifted but personalized materials specifically for athletics would be banned.

n Permit coaches to start contacting recruits on Sept. 1 of their junior year in high school in all sports other than basketball, football, men's ice hockey, swimming and diving, cross country and track and field. It would also lift restrictions on how and how often recruits can be contacted in the covered sports.

n Create a new definition of a "countable coach" when it comes to staff sizes and limits.

n Let men's ice hockey coaches to begin contacting prep recruits Jan. 1 of their sophomore school year and have off-campus contact starting June 15 after the sophomore year.

n Maintain the current ban on text messaging band other electronic communications in men's ice hockey.

n Allow schools to give athletes the maximum meal plan available to other students during in-season practices and other non-competitive events and provide unlimited snacks and additional meals to athletes in and out of season.
