If the package is approved, the overall result would provide coaches with more leeway in recruiting. The hope is that athletes will build more meaningful relationships with their coaches, and they will get more opportunities to showcase their skills in front of college and pro scouts.Other proposals would allow:
— Schools to provide normal expenses, including travel expenses, for athletes representing the school at events such as goodwill tours and media appearances;
— Athletes to receive expenses and "reasonable benefits" associated with practices and competition with national teams, including tryouts;
— Amateur teams or event sponsors to award money beyond an athlete's expenses based on the performance of that athlete or team in all sorts, not just tennis;
— Schools, conferences or the NCAA to pay for medical expenses and any related expenses for the athlete.
