Rule changes for summertime coaching activities
Published March 2015
With the assistance of the executive directors of the Iowa High School Athletic Association and Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union, the State Board has adopted an amendment to 281 IAC 36.15(6)(b) which sets out requirements for the operation of summer camps, clinics, and coaching contact for out-of-season sports activities. The amendment to 281 IAC subrule 36.15(6)(b) changes the time period in which summertime coaching activities cannot be in conflict with sports in season from “summertime” to specific dates “between June 1 and the first day of fall sports practices.” This change is to ensure all schools are limiting these activities during the same specified time periods. This rule became effective this past January, so it is in place for this summer.
