The MSHSAA Board of Directors has approved Area Meetings at which current issues facing the MSHSAA shall be addressed.


It is very important for superintendents, principals and athletic administrators to participate in these meetings.  Issues which are of a critical nature to the MSHSAA membership have been identified by your Board of Directors based upon input from member schools.  As you can see from the list below, several items may have staffing and financial implications for our schools.  Background information will be handed out at the meeting site.


Key issues to be addressed at Area Meetings shall include:


1.  8th Grade Students Participating in High School Conditioning Programs

2.   Elimination of 3rd Place Games at State Basketball Championships

3.   Heat Acclimatization

4.   Fall Practice 2014-15

5.   Fall First Allowable Contest 2014-15

6.   High School Students Assisting in Youth Sport Camps

7.   Preseason Scrimmage

8.   State Basketball Tournament on One Weekend

9.   Summer School Courses for Academic Eligibility

10.   Spring Softball State Series

11.   Petitions

        Track Classification

As members of this voluntary association it is important that our school administrators take part in these area meetings.  Your Board of Directors needs to hear from the membership on these issues to know how to proceed with the development of the Questionnaire, the Annual Ballot, and other action by the Board.
