The GHSA executive committee met in Macon Monday morning to discuss rules and possible changes on athletics for the upcoming new year.
One of the issues brought before the committee was beginning February 1, 2014, football coaches will have the option of participating in spring football practice or instead opting for summer scrimmages.
The new rule, allows high schools the choice of having spring practices in lieu of 2 pre season scrimmages against other schools in the summer. It overwhelmingly passed.
Also coming out of the meeting, GHSA president Ralph Swearngin gave positive remarks toward the Macon Centreplex for hosting state championships in wrestling and basketball this past year and looks forward to developing the relationship again over the next academic school term. He cites the location as a main reason.
The motion for GISA schools to be allowed to compete against GHSA schools was however denied.
