What should a student athlete in Idaho do when facing a disciplinary violation or administrative issue at their college or university or with the NCAA? VIDEO

Student athletes in Idaho are uniquely situated at their college, university, or high school. Student athletes put their blood, sweat, and tears into their sport and their academics and that is why it is troubling when they are treated unfairly or do not receive independent support when facing a disciplinary violation, such as academic misconduct or Title IX sexual misconduct, or an administrative issue with their school conference or sport's governing body.

Coaches, athletic directors, and NCAA administrators for example, often do what's in the programs or their best interest, and not what's in the student athletes best interest. Student athletes must have an experienced attorney advocate to guide them when a disciplinary or compliance issue arises, and the student-athlete faces an investigation or administrative proceedings with their Idaho school or sport's governing body.

Issues unique to student athletes can include sports-related dismissals or suspensions, inappropriate or abusive behavior by coaches, eligibility hardship and scholarship issues, transfer disputes, NCAA administrative appeals, and issues related to injuries, concussions, and sports litigation. You must take the necessary precautions before discussing any issues or concerns with your school or administrators. You must also understand your rights and responsibilities. An experienced attorney advisor will level the playing field and they should be in your corner from as early as possible in the process.
