Start Date and Ending Dates that we need to be aware of this year

Recommended Posts

Please notice the start dates for Softball and Baseball this year compared to the ending of basketball season!! I have been coaching for more years than I can count and have never seen this lap over with these dates before....so the spring sports must not be that important! 

Has anyone else notice this and if so what are the reasoning....yes it doesn't effect all schools but the ones it does isn't fair to have to start later.

I'm pretty sure the spring sports lap over with the Boy's State basketball championship every year or almost every year. Not sure how often with the Girl's State Championship but I know it does with the boys.

Boys basketball has overlapped multiple times. I can remember having to cancel games due to having players still in  basketball. Softball has typically just been preseason playdays that  were missed.

Need to pump your breaks a bit friend. The reason there is now overlap in softball isn't because basketball is going on longer, its because they are letting spring sports start a week earlier this year.

This happens every 10 years or so because of the calendar. I know it happened back in 2009. My nephew had to miss start of baseball season because it was the same day as basketball sectionals.
