07/31/17  High School Athletes Could Be Limited On Competition Days During Summer


Of the nine proposals that the state's schools will vote on this week during the Arkansas Activities Association's annual meeting of the governing body,  Proposal number 6 has probably been garnering the most attention this summer.

The proposal would put limits on competition days during the summer break. Each sport would be limited to eight competition days and athletes who play multiple sports would also be limited to eight competition days per sport during that time.

The Triple-A will consider this proposal and a handful of others today in Little Rock. Proposal number 6 was recommended by a committee of football coaches from different classifications across the state. It was then placed on a spring survey where it received 78 percent approval from school administrators and earned a spot as a proposal for today's meeting.
