The NCAA took another step toward restructuring college basketball’s offseason schedule on Wednesday, as the Division I Council approved summer athletic activities for men’s and women’s basketball beginning on July 20.
The council had previously approved participation in voluntary and virtual nonphysical activities for Division I men’s and women’s basketball players from June 1 to June 30, which can now continue from July 1 through July 19. But beginning on July 20, schools can begin to implement required athletic activities that can run for up to eight weeks, ending on Sept. 15 or the respective school’s first day of classes.
Following Sept. 15, student-athletes will begin out-of-season workouts, following close to the same guidelines as the required offseason activities.
No decision has been made yet regarding college basketball’s offseason recruiting calendar, though a vote is expected to take place in the coming weeks.
