Due to their involvement with your athletic program, student athletes are perceived as representatives of your institution’s brand or image, and their messages and actions can be misconstrued as official information from your institution.

Illicit or inappropriate social media posts can be a liability for the university and its athletics operations. With no official NCAA regulations on how to use and monitor student athletes’ social media presence, schools are left to police themselves and their students’ use of these social media platforms, which can be a daunting task for many institutions.

Join us for a webcast that will outline key components of a legally sound social media policy for your student athletes. Our expert instructors will showcase sample policies from a wide range of schools and provide ideas on how to successfully implement a social media policy for the student athletes on your campus.


This program is intended for athletic administrators from all NCAA, NAIA, and NJCAA institutions, athletics marketing personnel representatives, as well as non-athletics administrators and university legal counsel who have campus athletics responsibilities or who are concerned with student athletes’ social media presence. No matter where you are in the process of developing a social media policy, you will leave this webcast with a stronger understanding of legal implications and liabilities involved. You will also gain ideas for how to educate your student athlete community about your policy and the risks associated with social media use. After you register, you will receive instructions on how you can submit your current social media policy (if you have one) for review by our expert faculty prior to the session.
