AD’s & Football Coaches:

As we move from the final scrimmages this week to the first games next week, the health and safety of our athletes is always paramount. In that regard, please be mindful of the 6 quarter rule in football.

Section 158 of the TAPPS By-Laws states:  Students are limited to no more than 6 quarters in a given 5 day period

  • This includes varsity and sub-varsity contests
    (A quarter shall be counted towards this limit if the student participates in one or more plays from scrimmage.)
  • Exception: For the 2018 Football Season special team plays shall not count towards this limit.

The exception for special teams plays was allowed for the 2018 season to help with this transition. The exception has expired, so all plays count toward the quarter limit starting this season.
