Practice Policy for Heat and Humidity

During another hot Summer and Fall, the GHSA urges all coaches and players to please train smart and stay safe. During preseason conditioning and fall practice, the GHSA would like to remind everyone of the heat and humidity policies that are in place for ALL sports and not just football.

The earliest date for 2018 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 July 30. Have a safe and successful preseason.
