NCAA practice/training question

What are the rules regarding how much an NCAA athlete can be spent pursuing his/her sport? I understand that players have limited numbers of practices, hours a week, etc, but I was wondering about time spent in workouts, training room, film study, etc. Is that monitored (or is that even possible)?

Take our early enrollees. If Hayden Rettig wants to spend 6 hours a day breaking down film and getting informal throwing technique training from a "staff advisor", can he do that? Does that constitute a practice? I've often wondered how much coaches demand from their players at big time programs, given the severe limitations on the number of formal practices.

Pretty sure there aren't any rules on this. I know Tommy Moffit and the GA's spent time with players outside of practice helping with technique and stuff.

re: NCAA practice/training question
dont quote me on this, but i was under the impression that coaches can only require the players be at practices/games for 20hrs a week. The athlete can do as much as he/she pleases in addition to that.
