High School Sports Could Start on Time

The Georgia High School Association told its member schools that it will loosen certain restrictions, beginning Monday.
Fall sports are on schedule to start on time.  That means football camps will open July 27th, with opening week still slated for Aug. 21st.  Workouts can also increase for the state’s other fall sports — cross country, volleyball and softball.

The new guidelines, coming days after the state’s Public Health State of Emergency was extended by Gov. Brian Kemp, will allow groups up to 50 and permits teams to have inter-squad 7-on-7 drills, though helmets and pads are still prohibited.
