Epic Risk Management introduces a revolutionary’ NCAA program

Epic Risk Management announced details of a “landmark program” that will provide complete gambling damage and student-athlete protection instructional program to the National Collegiate Athletic Association members.

This will be made available to all NCAA campuses and conferences later this year, with the potential to reach the NCAA’s 1,100 member universities and a total 500,000 college athletes, according to Epic CEO Paul Buck.

About the new NCAA Program

The curriculum will be delivered through a combination of live, in-person education workshops and seminars, pre-recorded sessions, and on-demand internet resources. Additionally, educational materials will be carefully targeted at student-athletes, coaches, administrators, game officials, as well as health care and support professionals.

Each year, Epic provides education and resources to over 15,000 athletes and 50,000 students globally. Additionally, the organization has collaborated with the National Football League Players Association and Major League Soccer’s Chicago Fire to provide expertise and recommendations on potential dangers to the US betting and gaming business during an extraordinary period of growth.

Quotes from the Press Release

“This initiative is the NCAA’s latest response to the membership’s adaptation to expanding legalized sports wagering,” Stan Wilcox, executive vice president of regulatory affairs at the NCAA, stated.

“The NCAA is always assessing the developing landscape of sports betting, and we are dedicated to providing our institutions and conferences with tools, resources, and instructional programs. Our staff is composed of industry professionals, many of whom have personal experience with gambling addiction, who are devoted to increasing awareness and reducing gambling damage,” Buck continued.

“We are excited to collaborate with the NCAA to continue to provide the most complete gambling harm prevention services, support, awareness, and education to student-athletes and athletics personnel.”
