Video taping during NCAA competition

Unread postby wesley22 » Sat Mar 31, 2012 3:00 pm

I just read over the NCAA Rule Book. It states that a coach may not video tape in the competition area. I have seen many coaches/treammates video tape the pole vault competition right next to the runway/takeoff area and also outside of the infield from the stands. Is it permissable to video tape in an approved area and can the coach watch the video during the competition and then consult with the athlete to make adjustments? How does a coach determine an approved area that is not in the competition area?

*You can video tape from an approved area (I've seen it done from the competition area, stands, etc...). The coach or person doing the videotaping cannot coach the athlete upon viewing the footage though. Best bet is to check with the head field official or official at the event to determine what is a legal or illegal area to be video taping.

*This is how I understood the rule, and haven't had issues with officials. If I'm wrong, please correct :)
