Administrators Debate Summer Practice Rule

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Some high school administrators are opposed to a proposed athletics rule that would expand the voluntary summer practice period in West Virginia.

Media outlets report the Secondary School Activities Commission's Board of Control approved the change this week to include the entire summer, except for the week that includes the July 4th holiday. Previously the practice period was limited to three weeks during the month of June.

SSAC executive director Gary Ray says many sports such as football already have year-round conditioning and weightlifting, and that the proposal gives coaches the chance to work with the athletes in the summer.

Bridgeport High athletic director Matt DeMotto calls it a bad idea.

The rule now goes before the state Board of Education and must include a public comment period.
