FHSAA Bulletin Re: Bowling, Cross Country, Golf, Swimming & Diving and Girls Volleyball

The safety of the student-athletes, parents, coaches and school administrators impacted by Hurricane Irma remains our top concern.  Due to the widespread and varying levels of impact from Hurricane Irma, the FHSAA has chosen not to uniformly cancel, postpone and/or prohibit play.  The FHSAA plans to maintain the originally scheduled season dates in an effort to cause the least amount of impact on all other non-athletic activities.  The decision to practice and/or play remains up to each individual school and/or school district. 

Provided facilities, roadways and conditions permit, each school is encouraged to resume play as soon as possible.  In an effort to get teams conditioned appropriately and back on track with regularly scheduled contests, practice will be permitted this Sunday (September 17th) only, with your school and/or school districts approval.  In the event contests need to be rescheduled or postponed, schools are encouraged to work together to come up with a date that best suits all parties involved.
