Executive Committee Action on Spring Sports Weather Conditions & Scheduling
As a result of poor weather and numerous rescheduling difficulties for member schools, the MHSAA Executive Committee has approved two actions effective for 2018 spring sports only:
- Regulation II, Section 10(A) 10 and 12 – Limitations of Competition: Allowed up to two additional multi-team tournament dates in girls soccer, boys lacrosse and girls lacrosse – each counting within the 18 dates permitted in a season. Multi-team events must be held on non-school days (soccer and lacrosse) or days not followed by school (lacrosse) and follow all stipulations set forth under the regulations, including that these dates count as one of the 18 allowed in a season and three allowed dates of competition in a week (Monday through Sunday). There may be no more than two other games during a week (Monday through Sunday) when a multi-team event is played. The limits apply to both teams and individuals. Consult page 66 of the 2017-18 MHSAA Handbook for all specifics.
- Regulation II, Section 15(B) – MHSAA Tournament Condition: For all schools and spring sports, the Executive Committee waived the requirement that a school team must have participated in four contests against MHSAA member schools this season prior to the MHSAA tournament.
