At the April 27, 2015, Board of Managers meeting, the committee approved three new Section Bylaws. The first new Bylaw will implement a mandatory dead period for all sport teams. The second will require the posting of scores on the MaxPreps website for sports that MaxPreps offers this service. The third and most newsworthy, the Section will recognize a new level of competition, Inclusive Sports Level. This level will provide opportunity for participation for student with disabilities. Specific language in the bylaw will identify the qualifications for participation at this level of competition. The Section began implementation of this level of competition with the 2016 track & field season. We anticipate expanding to other individual sports moving forward.
