With the forecast calling for hot days ahead, the GHSA would like to remind all schools of the heat and humidity policies as you enter preseason conditioning for the fall sports seasons.
The earliest date for football conditioning practice is July 25 with football practice in pads on August 1 (See football section of Constitution for exact rules and restrictions). First practice for softball, cross country, volleyball and cheerleading begins on August 1. Have a safe and successful preseason.
