High School Football Practice Changes
The WIAA says a higher seeded high school football team will now host
football playoff games in Levels 1-3. It was the most notable fall sports rule change, at least in regards to this area of the state. The board also voted to implement new practice changes so football players are not practicing in the late summer heat as long. Holmen Athletic Director, Mark Englerth says the rules will be explained to all student athletes .
The WIAA's Board of Control unanimously approved new rules last week on the length of practices, and breaks that must be taken to avoid players from getting overheated. State coaches joined the WIAA in creating the new rules.
