Central Board approves AHSAA plan to Return to Play and “Best Practices”


MONTGOMERY, Ala (WDHN) — During Wednesday’s Alabama High School Athletic Association’s meeting, the Central Board of Control approved the states plan to return to play.

The major component that was passed was recommended guidelines for each football team’s practices as well as reaffirming that the season would start on time.

Football programs have the option to begin fall workouts during the week of July 27th, for acclimation purposes, which means helmets and shorts but no pads.

Other fall sports can begin their practices during the same week for tryouts or acclimation as well.

AHSAA Executive Director, Steve Savarese gave praise to the Board of Control for their leadership shown and for giving schools the right tools to restart their seasons.

“I want to thank this Central Board for having the courage to do the right thing,” said Savarese. “Moving forward, this is a great day for our association,” he would add.

Tomorrow afternoon, the AHSAA will meet again for a virtual conference where they will discuss the latest updates within the Association.
