Not that simple but sure, I have time today so I’ll do the math for my sport:
August 1-August 27th 2 a days + meetings and film + workouts
6a - 9:30 P every day (Sunday’s included) I’ll even take off one hour for lunch. 15.5 hr/ day for 27 days = 418. 5 hours.
Season: aug 27 - dec 4
Sunday = weights + training room + film + practice, 6 hours total
Monday = weights + training room + film meetings, 4 hours total.
Tuesday = weights + training room + film meetings + practice. 6.5 hours total
Wednesday = same as Tuesday.
Thursday = training room + meetings + practice = 5 hours total
Friday = walk through + meetings + travel + meetings + hotel = 7 hours total.
Saturday game day = all day event of meetings, warm up, the game, media events, travel. 8 hours for home, 12 hours for away. Yes I’m including travel as all professions bull for travel hours.
Hours - 47. Yes cara exist. Yes there are loopholes.
47 * 14 weeks (bye weeks follow similar schedule) = 705 hours.
Bowl game practices same as two a days, a little less about 12 hours per day from dec 4 - Jan 1. No Christmas off.
25* 12 = 300 hours.
Off season work starts Jan 8th. Workouts from Jan 8th - feb 28th. 2 hours/day 5x per week with “optional” meetings for an hour a day.
15 hrs per week * 7 = 105 hrs
Spring ball = March.
Sunday = film room for 2 hours
Monday = practice + film + weights 6 hours
Tuesday = Monday
Wednesday = film + weights for 3 hours.
Thursday = Monday.
Friday = Wednesday
Saturday = Monday.
32/week for 4 weeks 128 hours.
April = Jan.
15* 4 = 60 hours.
June - July = Jan.
8*15 = 120
Total = 1836 hours per year. Almost as expected of a salaried employee. So GTFO with that 450 hours BS
Yes CARA is a thing- half the job of compliance office is to find loopholes in it.
