The project story

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) partnered with BLP, now TiER1 to create the NCAA DII Online Coaches Training Program – a mobile-first solution that coaches can view anytime, anywhere. After completing training, the goal is for DII coaches to be able to confidently and competently identify and apply recruiting rules and regulations and locate appropriate recruiting and eligibility resources.

National Collegiate Athletic Association

The NCAA is a diverse association of more than 1,100 member colleges and universities that prioritize academics, well-being and fairness to create greater opportunities for nearly half a million student-athletes each year. The NCAA provides a pathway to higher education and beyond for student-athletes pursuing academic goals and competing in NCAA sports.

Ensure that coaches are well-informed of NCAA rules for recruiting to help prevent potential NCAA rules violations.

  • Mobile-first solution that coaches can view anytime, anywhere.
  • Complicated material is presented as an easy-to-understand animation.
  • Live video interviews with coaches and compliance officers are also included to give the courses added impact.
  • All courses include a downloadable, printable summary screen that serves as a “cheat sheet” coaches can use to review important reminders and bylaws.

“DII University is a platform that provides an interactive and engaging method to learning,” said Terri Steeb Gronau, Vice President of Division II at the NCAA. “The ability to provide a tool for coaches, key individuals for the student-athletes, is significant. Coaches have access to a tool that can be accessed anywhere and at any time. It provides them what they need to know for their job and what they need to know to enhance the student-athlete experience on campus. What has been built initially for coaches will expand to others on campus and we look forward to bringing this learning experience to others.”
