About twenty Division I conferences teamed together to draft an SLR Waiver relating to NCAA Bylaw 13.14.3, which addresses recruiting services and a prohibition on nonscholastic video. The conferences seemingly sought for the NCAA to waive two aspects of NCAA Bylaw 13.14.3 and requested the following: 1) NCAA Bylaw 13.14.3, as it currently exists, to only apply to basketball and football; and 2) eliminate the prohibition on nonscholastic video. After much consideration and communications with the NCAA, a waiver was granted, in part, whereby all sports other than basketball and football are now subject to NCAA Bylaw 13.14.3 as it existed prior to the adoption of NCAA Proposal 2009-56 (i.e., An institution may subscribe to a regularly published scouting service involving prospective student-athletes, provided this service is made available to all institutions desiring to subscribe and at the same fee rate for all subscribers) and the request was partially approved as it pertains to nonscholastic video. The prohibition on nonscholastic video was not waived for basketball and football, but was waived for all other sports. As a result, basketball and football will still remain subject to the current NCAA Bylaw 13.14.3 relating to nonscholastic video.
