GHSAA Limits Contact in Football in Nod to Concussion Prevention

The Georgia High School Athletic Association’s executive committee has unanimously approved rules that will limit full contact on the football field to 45 minutes per day and 135 minutes per week in the spring and preseason.

The limits are even more restrictive during during the regular season and post-season, where teams may only participate in full contact for 30 minutes per day and 90 minutes per week. In addition, they cannot have full contact over three consecutive days.

Each school must also keep a detailed daily practice plan. GHSAA members that violate the rules will be fined the first time, and banned from postseason play if it happens again.
