The Ohio High School Athletic Association Board of Directors met Thursday in Columbus for its
regularly scheduled February meeting. The following are a couple football related highlights from the meeting.

--By a 6‐3 vote, the board approved an OHSAA Out‐of‐Season Coaching Instruction Proposal that will allow
expanded opportunities for Board of Education approved coaches in the team sports to provide
instruction outside the season of play. The regulation becomes effective Sept. 3, 2013. Individual
instruction is defined as no more than four individuals present at any one time in all combined facilities
where instruction is taking place.

--By a 7‐2 vote, the board approved an OHSAA proposal regarding the start of football practice in 2013. For
schools that start classes August 16 or earlier, football practice may begin on Thursday, August 1. All other
