IHSAA approves 2 measures

The IHSAA approved a couple of measures at its annual review of its bylaws.

The first measure outlines a more detailed criterion for football practices, particularly the first four days with regard to contact, equipment and the duration.

The second measure establishes football participation during the summer that specifies that the maximum time for a school’s “activity day” will be 3 ½ hours over a five-hour period and schools will be allowed to sponsor up to 12 football activity days where coaching staffs may work with two or more players from their teams.

During those 12 days, five competition days may be designated for practice with or to compete with players from another school.
