FHSAA rescinds cuts in number of games permitted

Threat of lawsuit prompted action

 The Florida High School Athletic Association Board of Directors voted unanimously Wednesday to rescind the amendments to Policy 6, "Sports Season Guidelines."

The amendments, which were originally passed in April, would have reduced interscholastic varsity contests by 20 percent and sub-varsity contests by 40 percent in most sports in an effort both to alleviate the financial crisis facing school districts and provide a uniform solution across the state.

The FHSAA was made aware of a possible Title IX violation and litigation in June, and worked diligently to be in compliance with Title IX. Since no compromise could be reached, a recommendation was made to hold a Board meeting to consider rescinding the amendments to Policy 6.

"I believe what we did in April was the best thing for the membership then, and given the situation, what we did today was in its best interest now," said Board of Directors President Greg Zornes.
