Booster Home


Welcome all Bruin Fans!


The broad-based success of UCLA Athletics is possible because of the support of you, the great fans, loyal alumni and donors and many other friends of our program. Your support is also important for another very important reason – to assist in our continuing effort to maintain compliance with NCAA rules. As part of our comprehensive booster education program, we are pleased to provide you with “key rules you need to know” and important reminders to help keep NCAA rules compliance in mind while continuing your enthusiasm for and dedication to UCLA Athletics.

The information on this site and in the links provided are designed to guide you on NCAA rules and related topics that involve our loyal Bruin fans and supporters, including subjects such as recruiting, extra benefits, employment of student-athletes, and the important concept of institutional control. NCAA rules can be complex and may contain some gray areas, so we encourage you to contact the UCLA Athletics Compliance Office with any questions. UCLA student-athletes and coaches are frequently reminded to “ask before acting” and we encourage all of our fans and supporters to do the same.

For additional information, please see pages below and the Reference Guide to NCAA Rules for Fans, Alumni and Supporters of UCLA Athletics.

If you have any questions on NCAA rules, please contact Dan Goldberg, Assistant Athletic Director Compliance at dgoldberg@athletics.ucla or 310-794-8813.
