Compliance Corner - February 24, 2011 Question
A: No. It is impermissible for a student-athlete to sell any item received for athletic participation or exchange for another item of value. Student-athletes are not permitted to sell awards received for participation in conference or national competition or received through special achievements.
As has recently been highly publicized a student-athlete that sells his/her awards or apparel (or trades those items for something of value) is rendering themselves ineligible. Further, the student-athlete will have to go through the reinstatement process with the NCAA that will likely include repaying the value of the benefit received for selling or trading their items and a suspension from a contest or contests.
