NCAA Rules Pertaining to Countable Athletically Related Activity

NCAA rules regulate the number of hours a student-athlete can participate in countable athletically related activity (CARA) per week and per day. The amount of CARA that a student-athlete is allowed to participate in varies from championship season to out of season to non-championship season. Coaches are required to track CARA Monday to Sunday each week and report those hours to the Office of Compliance every Monday. Below is a review of the NCAA rules pertaining to CARA.
