NCAA Summer Drug Testing Policy
NCAA Summer Drug-Testing Specifics
- Institutions to be drug tested this summer will be selected by Drug Free Sport.
- Drug testing will include Division I and Division II football and baseball student-athletes. However, please remember that all Division I and Division II student-athletes are subject to summer drug testing, whether they are on-campus or away from campus.
- The sport(s) to be drug tested this summer will be selected by Drug Free Sport. Five (5) to ten student-athletes may be selected for drug testing.
- There is a chance your institution may be selected for drug testing more than once this summer. There also is a chance your institution may not be selected for testing at all this summer.
Notification of Summer Drug-Testing (from Drug Free Sport to Site Coordinators)
If your institution is selected for summer drug testing, the director of athletics, primary summer site coordinator, secondary summer site coordinator and compliance coordinator will receive notification from Drug Free Sport no sooner than 48 hours prior to the test date. A current and accurate NCAA Squad List for the selected sport(s) must then be submitted to Drug Free Sport for the random student-athlete selection.
PLEASE NOTE: After Drug Free Sport has selected student-athletes for drug testing, the summer roster recipient designated on www.ncdfs.com will receive the roster of selected student-athletes via email.
For those student-athletes who are on-campus or in your local community, the summer site coordinator is responsible for notifying them of their selection for drug testing. These student-athletes must be notified in person or via a direct telephone or cell phone call. Voice messages, email communication or text messages are not acceptable forms of notification.
The summer site coordinator is responsible for having student-athletes who are on campus or in the school's local community sign the NCAA Year-Round Drug-Testing Notification Form and informing them of the date, time and location to report for drug testing. The summer site coordinator must sign each notification form, verifying the student-athlete's notification of drug testing.
DO NOT NOTIFY student-athletes who are away from campus or outside the local community for the summer months. The summer site coordinator is required to provide their contact information to Drug Free Sport. Drug Free Sport will then be responsible for scheduling their drug test with an NCAA collector. The NCAA collector will notify these student athletes and will have the student-athlete sign the NCAA Year-Round Drug-Testing Notification Form prior to the collection.
For more information on the NCAA year-round drug-testing program, refer to the 2013-14 Site Coordinator Manual and the 2013-13 NCAA Drug-Testing Program Booklet on the NCAA's Website at www.ncaa.org/health-safety. You can also access the Site Coordinator Manual through www.ncdfs.com
