RENTON, Wash. – The WIAA Executive Board offered two points of clarification as the Association continues to plan for the upcoming school year and receive feedback from membership and school administrators.
The Executive Board voted to allow an alternate season the golf and tennis teams in the newly formed WIAA Season 3. The change was made to alleviate scheduling conflicts for member schools that will not be able to participate in WIAA Season 1. For the 2020-21 school year, member schools will have the option to offer tennis and golf during WIAA Season 1, Season 3, or Season 4 with the WIAA Culminating event scheduled at the conclusion of Season 4.
The Board also added clarification on the allowable coaching period from Sept. 28-Nov. 30 for football. The policy of 20 allowable football practices, with 10 of those being in pads and full contact, will extend from the summer window into the new fall coaching window without resetting.
Ex. A football team conducts eight practices during the summer coaching window, three of which are in pads. The team will now have 12 remaining practices (seven in pads) from Sept. 28-Nov. 30.
