Baltimore, MD – The Maryland State Board of Education officially endorsed a comprehensive set of changes to the Interscholastic Athletic Regulations that govern the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association. The changes are the result of a two year review process by local school system administrators.
These amendments to the athletic regulations take effect on August 19, 2013. They will be published in the annual MPSSAA Handbook. Among the highlights of the revisions are the permanent restructuring of the first Fall practice date and a redefinition of out-of-season practice to allow school coaching staffs to work during the off-season with a maximum of two returning players per day.
More information will be distributed to member schools in the coming weeks.
