New Sports Guidelines

The Louisiana High School Athletic Association on Thursday issued a 17-page set of guidelines for sports competitions this fall.  Of most interest locally is the start of football in a week.  The whole thing is in the file attached at the bottom of this article.

Highlight for football include maintaining social distancing on the sidelines among players.  Coaches are responsible for this.  Everyone on the sideline has to wear a mask, so do the spectators and others in attendance.  And LHSAA wants teams to limit the number of players on their roster to enhance social distancing.

And the ball has to be sanitized numerous times during the game.  So do the rest rooms and other stadium facilities.

Please read all the guidelines for yourself.  Then you will be informed on what LHSAA expects.
