Michigan camp in Australia canceled due to NCAA rules
The Michigan football camp that was planned for Australia in June has been canceled, ProKick Australia announced Monday.
ProKick said the camp had been canceled due to NCAA rules, though the company did not say which ones.
Michigan planned the camp while it was embroiled in the NCAA’s drama over satellite camps. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh had angered other coaches by aggressively appearing at practices around the country, a practice which was formerly banned by the SEC and ACC.
Despite the cancelation of the ProKick camp, Michigan still plans on holding a camp in Australia on the same day, just with a different host.
“Our plans won’t work, so they said they’ll be going to a new organizer at a different location on the same day,” ProKick Australia director Nathan Chapman said, according to MLive.
Satellite camps were briefly banned by the Division I Council, but the decision was overturned by the NCAA’s Board of Directors.
