OHSLA and the New OSAA Practice Limitation Rules

August 2019

The OHSLA has adopted the new OSAA Practice Limitation Rules (formerly a Pilot Program) as documented in the Practice Limitation Rule (6A, 5A Pilot) on the OSAA website.  If one scrolls down to the Q&A section there are some helpful answers.  These rules represent a move away from the former Rule-of-Two limitations and allow coaches to spend time with larger groups of players during certain periods of the Off-Season.  When a sport is not in season, there will be two periods with different limitation for coaches during the off-season: The rules for the summer have not changed.  There is still a Moratorium week (typically at the end of July beginning of August) and coaches can coach their teams without restrictions until the start of the Fall Closed Period
