Basketball Practice Start Date...WHAT THE...???

Recommended Posts

I just talked to one of my coaching friends and he said basketball practice can't start until November 4th this year. This is the craziest thing I have ever heard!! They should be able to start October 15th. Give them at least 3 weeks of practice before the first scrimmage and Jamboree dates. Come on TSSAA!!! You have to change this!!!  Where You At?

Changes from year to year but it's always about the same. 2 weeks or so before the first game date.

Nov 1 is the last regular season football game for most schools.

regardless of all that. How about giving coaches a chance to practice for more than a week before they start scrimmage games. This is crazy

This isn't really new. This kind of calendar has been in place for 20 years. I agree it's ridiculous.

I guess i really didn't pay attention but when he said November 4th I was like you gotta be kidding me. Talk about unfair!!! This may be motivation to bend the rule.

Plenty of people skirt this rule in different ways.

I graduated in 98 and we had no real rules regarding practice. Then in 1999 some rules came down and I feel like the quality of basketball went down slowly. Kids in cities had access to gyms in different aspects: YMCAs, community centers, church gyms. However, rural areas of the state suffered because the only gym is at the school and the TSSAA limited access to that.

 I graduated in 91 and can remember practice starting on October the 21st at least one year. First game was second week of November.

I never remember any start date to practice. The day our season ended we worked out through summer 5 days a week in the morning and 3 nights a week open gym. We never took days off. 

Where did you play?
