The NCAA opposes all forms of legal and illegal sports wagering, which has the potential to undermine the integrity of sports contests and jeopardizes the welfare of student-athletes and the intercollegiate athletics community.

Student-athletes are not permitted to wager on any sport sponsored by the NCAA. The NCAA also prohibits student-athletes from providing information to individuals involved in or associated with any type of sports wagering activities concerning intercollegiate, amateur or professional athletics competition. Student-athletes are often the first to know about an injured teammate or a player who will be sitting out of competition for disciplinary reasons. It is always best to keep this information to yourself so that it does not make its way to someone involved in or associated with sports wagering.

Some examples of impermissible sports wagering are:

• Fantasy Leagues

• March Madness brackets

• Sports pools

• Online sports bets

• Sports parlay cards

Anytime you put something at risk, such as an entry fee, for an opportunity to win something in return, you violate the NCAA sports wagering bylaws.
