Athletic Groups Throw Flag At FHSAA Overhaul

Apr 18, 2013

A bill is making its way through both the House and Senate revising and altering the way the Florida High School Athletic Association regulates student athlete’s eligibility and conducts investigations.  Portions of the bill allows students to, in some cases, maintain athletic eligibility even after transfering schools. Roger Dearing, Executive Director of the FHSAA, said the measure will tear down the barriers that protect student athletes from recruiting by dishonest coaches.
