(September 10, 2019</strong>) - The FHSAA office considers the destruction from Hurricane Dorian to be an event that was beyond the control of the student and his/her parent or guardian. Subsequently, the FHSAA is granting a provisional undue hardship eligibility waiver to all students displaced from the Bahamas as a direct result of Hurricane Dorian.</p> <p><span class="red"><strong>The displaced student is permitted to represent your school in interscholastic competition once the student: </strong></span></p> <ol> <li><span class="red"><strong>is enrolled in your school; </strong></span></li> <li><span class="red"><strong>has undergone a &ldquo;Preparticipation Physical Evaluation&rdquo; (EL2) conducted by a qualified practitioner in the state of Florida; </strong></span></li> <li><span class="red"><strong>has submitted a signed &ldquo;Consent and Release from Liability Certificate&rdquo; (EL3); </strong></span></li> <li><span class="red"><strong>has submitted a signed &ldquo;Affidavit of Compliance with FHSAA Policy on Athletic Recruiting&rdquo; (GA4); and </strong></span></li> <li><span class="red"><strong>has reviewed the required NFHS Learn courses for participation.&nbsp; </strong></span></li> </ol> <p><em>Please note, the procedures for Exertional Heat Illness, outlined in FHSAA Policy 41.5, must be followed.</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Q:</strong> <strong>The displaced student did not relocate to Florida with his/her parents or guardians, but rather has been sent here to live with other relatives or family friends.&nbsp; Who is permitted to sign the EL2, EL3 and GA4?</strong></p> <p><strong>A:</strong> The individual with whom the displaced student is now living, acting in loco parentis, may sign the paperwork required for participation.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Q: The displaced student was already practicing at his/her previous school before Hurricane Dorian.&nbsp; Does he/she still need to undergo the heat acclimatization period outlined in FHSAA Policy 41.5?</strong></p> <p><strong>A:</strong> Yes, the acclimatization period is mandatory. The school must be able to verify that the student-athlete is properly conditioned to participate in the sport. The health and safety of the student-athlete must come first.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span class="red"><strong>You must make your best effort to determine the eligibility of the displaced student with regards to academic eligibility, limit of eligibility and age.&nbsp; If the student cannot provide a transcript and/or proof of age, you should attempt to contact the Bahamas School Athletic Alliance (BSAA) and ask them if the student was eligible to participate in the Bahamas.</strong> <strong>The student will be considered eligible for the first semester of the 2019-20 school year, if the student was eligible in accordance with the BSAA policies.&nbsp; Beginning with the second semester, however, the student&rsquo;s academic eligibility will be determined by FHSAA bylaws and policies in accordance with Florida statutes.</strong></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Q: Must we hold the displaced student out of competition until we get confirmation of his/her eligibility from the BSAA Office?</strong></p> <p><strong>A:</strong> No, you may allow the displaced student to participate in competition once the student has enrolled, completed the necessary paperwork and viewed the required NFHS Learn courses. It may take time to get confirmation of the student&rsquo;s eligibility from the BSAA. Their staff is overwhelmed dealing with their own hurricane-related matters. If the BSAA Office responds that the student is ineligible in accordance with their rules, remove the student from competition and contact the FHSAA Office immediately. Your school will be held harmless.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Q: The displaced student&rsquo;s previous school does not require a cumulative 2.0 grade point average for academic eligibility.&nbsp; If the displaced student was academically eligible at his/her previous school, is he/she eligible in Florida?&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>A:</strong> If the displaced student was academically eligible in the Bahamas, they will be academically eligible in Florida for the remainder of the first semester. If you can obtain the displaced student&rsquo;s official transcript, you must determine academic eligibility in accordance with Florida statutes.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Q: There&rsquo;s a possibility we won&rsquo;t receive an official transcript for the displaced student before the second semester begins. How do we determine academic eligibility for the second semester?</strong></p> <p><strong>A:</strong> Beginning with the second semester, the displaced student must abide by Florida&rsquo;s 2.0 GPA standard for academic eligibility. If you receive the displaced student&rsquo;s official transcript from his/her previous school, calculate the cumulative GPA as you would any other student relocating to your school. If you do not receive the official transcript, the student&rsquo;s GPA will be based solely on his/her first semester grades at your school.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Q: The student is unable to provide Proof of Age (birth certificate, visa, passport, etc.). How do we verify the student&rsquo;s age?</strong></p> <p><strong>A: </strong>An affidavit of age sworn by the parent and/or legal guardian, accompanied by a certificate of age signed by a public health officer or by a public-school physician, must be on file with the EL2, EL3 and GA4. If these are not available in your county or to the member school, the certificate of age must be signed by a licensed physician designated by the school district board or the school&rsquo;s governing body (in the case of non-public schools), which states that the health officer or licensed physician has examined the student and believes the age, as stated on the affidavit, is substantially correct. Displaced students shall be permitted to use this form of age verification for a period of thirty (30) days.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span class="red"><strong>FHSAA residence and transfer rules are waived one time for the benefit of each displaced student.&nbsp; That means the student is considered eligible with regards to residence and transfer in the first Florida school that he/she enrolls.&nbsp; If the student, after enrolling in one Florida school, transfers attendance to another Florida school during the 2019-20 school year, he/she will be subject to the provisions of all rules relating to transfer students.</strong></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Q: The displaced student began participation in the sport(s) at his/her previous school. Does the student need to meet the provisions of FHSAA Bylaw 9.3.2.2?</strong></p> <p><strong>A:</strong> No, the student is eligible to participate in any fall sport, regardless of prior participation.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Q: The displaced student is not living with his/her legal guardian. He/she has been sent to our community to live with relatives or friends. Does this impact his/her eligibility to participate?</strong></p> <p><strong>A:</strong> Possibly. In accordance with FHSAA Policy 37.2.2.7, students participating in interscholastic contests may not reside with a representative of the school&rsquo;s athletic interests as defined in FHSAA Bylaw 1.4.18. If a displaced student is residing with a representative, and their legal guardian is not in the home, the student may request a waiver through the FHSAA Due Process procedures.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Q: Must the displaced student wait until the sixth day of attendance (Bylaw 9.3.3) to participate in an interscholastic contest?</strong></p> <p><strong>A:</strong> No, provided the student has met the heat acclimatization procedures for the sport.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span class="red"><strong>Member schools must complete an EL10, &ldquo;Request for Eligibility Ruling&rdquo; on Home Campus for each displaced student. In the &ldquo;Statements of Fact&rdquo; area, please include an itemized list of information you have collected regarding the student&rsquo;s eligibility to participate. It is not necessary that you await a response from the FHSAA office before permitting the student to participate.</strong></span></p> <p>If you have questions, please contact Craig Damon, Associate Executive Director for Eligibility and Compliance, by email <span class="spamspan"><span class="u">cdamon</span> [at] <span class="d">fhsaa [dot] org</span></span> or by phone 352-372-9551 ext. 240.</p> <br /> <p>&nbsp;</p> Athletic Services Eligibility & Compliance Governance Media, Communications, & Marketing Membership Tue, 10 Sep 2019 13:33:45 +0000 jcolasanti 44401 at https://www.fhsaa.org FHSAA Announces 2019-2020 Student-Athlete Advisory Committee https://www.fhsaa.org/news/2019/0909 <p><strong>Gainesville, FL.

You are not required to play regular season district games.</p> <p><strong>Am I required to play regular-season district games in order to qualify for the district tournament?</strong></p> <p>NO. Regular season district games are not required in order to participate in the district tournament. Teams have the freedom to schedule whoever they want in the regular season.</p> <p><strong>Does this new system encourage member schools to run up the score?</strong></p> <p>NO. According to the MaxPreps representative who spoke to the FHSAA Board of Directors last year, there is no incentive to run up the score when it comes to MaxPreps rankings.</p> <p><strong>Could a district champion have to travel to a higher-seeded district runner-up?</strong></p> <p>NO. The district champions automatically qualify for playoff seeds 1-4. After the district champions are seeded 1-4 via MaxPreps rankings, four at-large teams then qualify for seeds 5-8 via their MaxPreps rankings. The higher seed ALWAYS hosts.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Will all teams be required to report their scores on MaxPreps?</strong></p> <p>YES. Scores are required to be inputted in MaxPreps. Member schools who do not input their scores in the regular season will be fined.</p> <p><strong>Will schools be required to enter stats into MaxPreps with this new system?</strong></p> <p>NO. Only schools advancing to the Florida High School State Championships will be required to have updated stats on MaxPreps. Member schools who do not input update their stats, rosters and scores in the State Series will be fined $100 per round.</p> <p>------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------</p> <h3 style="padding:0px">FLAG FOOTBALL</h3> <p style="margin-top:0px;

You are not required to play regular season district games.</p> <p><strong>Is it true teams have to play regular-season district games to qualify for their district tournament?</strong></p> <p>NO. Regular season district games are not required in order to participate in the district tournament. Teams have the freedom to schedule whoever they want in the regular season.</p> <p><strong>Does this new system encourage member schools to run up the score?</strong></p> <p>NO. According to the MaxPreps representative who spoke to the FHSAA Board of Directors last year, there is no incentive to run up the score when it comes to MaxPreps rankings.</p> <p><strong>Could a district champion have to travel to a higher-seeded district runner-up?</strong></p> <p>NO. The district champions automatically qualify for playoff seeds 1-4. After the district champions are seeded 1-4 via MaxPreps rankings, four at-large teams then qualify for seeds 5-8 via their MaxPreps rankings. The higher seed ALWAYS hosts.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Will all teams be required to report their scores on MaxPreps?</strong></p> <p>YES. Scores are required to be inputted in MaxPreps. Member schools who do not input their scores in the regular season will be fined.</p> <p><strong>Will schools be required to enter stats into MaxPreps with this new system?</strong></p> <p>NO. Only schools advancing to the Florida High School State Championships will be required to have updated stats on MaxPreps. Member schools who do not input update their stats, rosters and scores in the State Series will be fined $100 per round.</p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <div> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody> <tr class="odd"> <td> <h3><strong>MaxPreps - Team Scores &amp; Stats Reminder</strong></h3> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody> <tr class="odd"> <td> <p>Please remember that it is mandatory that you enter your scores within MaxPreps.&nbsp; It is also strongly encouraged that you enter your team sports stats throughout the year to assist with the state series.<br /> <br /> There are a few ways to enter your scores immediately following your game contest:</p> <p><br /> 1.

Please refer to&nbsp;<a href="https://www.fhsaa.org/sites/default/files/attachments/2010/09/16/node-235/1819_handbook_policies.pdf">FHSAA Policy 12</a>.</p> <p style="margin-top:0px; margin-right:0px; margin-left:0px; padding:0px">Q: What did the FHSAA use to determine a school&rsquo;s enrollment?<br /> A: As required annually, each member school submitted their enrollment numbers to our office in October.<br /> <br /> Q:&nbsp;Can a school appeal its placement if they wish to move up or down?<br /> A: After traveling the state this past year, the consensus the FHSAA heard from its athletic directors and coaches was that they wanted an equal number of teams by classification, an even number of teams in each district and region and no three-team districts. Moving schools would go against that sentiment and would create uneven classifications, regions or districts. The staff has thoroughly reviewed the assignments and do not see any schools that are geographically isolated that would require movement to another classification (<a href="https://www.fhsaa.org/sites/default/files/attachments/2010/09/16/node-235/1819_handbook_policies.pdf">FHSAA Policy 12</a>). To maintain the wishes of our constituents,&nbsp;<strong><u>the FHSAA&nbsp;will not be accepting appeals.</u></strong></p> <p style="margin-top:0px; margin-right:0px; margin-left:0px; padding:0px">Q: If a school does not like where it is placed, what are the options?<br /> A: The member school can become independent for the two-year classification cycle. Please refer to&nbsp;<a href="https://www.fhsaa.org/sites/default/files/attachments/2010/09/16/node-235/1819_handbook_policies.pdf">FHSAA Policy 10.1.3</a>.</p> <p style="margin-top:0px; margin-right:0px; margin-left:0px; padding:0px">Q: When can we expect the spring sports to be released?<br /> A: May/June 2019 (<strong>NOTE:&nbsp; Releases for a given sport will occur after that sport season has fully concluded</strong>)</p> <p style="margin-top:0px; margin-right:0px; margin-left:0px; padding:0px">Q: When does this classification cycle end?<br /> A: The new classification cycle ends following the conclusion of the 2020-21 FHSAA season. Following the conclusion of the two-year cycle, the FHSAA will review classifications again using our FHSAA Board of Directors and Athletic Directors Advisory Committee-approved policies and procedures.</p> <p style="margin-top:0px; margin-right:0px; margin-left:0px; padding:0px"><strong><u>ABOUT THE FHSAA</u></strong></p> <p style="margin-top:0px; margin-right:0px; margin-left:0px; padding:0px">The Florida High School Athletic Association supervises and regulates interscholastic athletic programs for high school students at member public, private and charter schools.

The rule states &ldquo;<a href="https://www.nfhs.org/sports-resource-content/softball-rules-changes-2019/">Media shall be prohibited from being in live-ball area.&nbsp;The home team or game management may designate an area for the media in dead-ball territory</a>.&rdquo;</p> <p>The FHSAA would like to make it abundantly clear host school contest managers (Principal, AD, etc&hellip;) <strong><u>should</u></strong> create a media box in foul territory (past first and third base) using chalk or spray paint. PLEASE pass this memo on to your coaches and let them know by creating a media box in foul territory, that box immediately becomes a dead-ball territory whether it is occupied or not. This is no different than what FHSAA baseball contest managers have done for years and is exactly what the FHSAA does at the Florida High School Softball State Championships.</p> <p>Media members are encouraged to reach out to host contest managers in advance to make plans.</p> <p>This has been communicated to media members, softball coaches, umpire association presidents and umpire booking commissioners statewide.</p> <p>Please help the media do their job and cover your schools to the best of their ability.
