WIAA Approves Extension Of Alternate Year Physical Examination Period

Posted by Larry Hoeser, Sports Director

The WIAA Board of Control approved an extension of the alternate year physical examination period required for interscholastic participation and discussed options to modify operational revenues and expenses at its May meeting on Friday.

Membership rules require a physical examination prior to participation in interscholastic athletics and every two years thereafter. The Board’s action allows a one-time extension of the two-year period for student-athletes with physical exams forms already on file. For fall sports in 2020, student-athletes that have had a physical within the past two years may receive an extension into the third year until they are able to get a physical with their primary care physician.
The Board also verified the dates for the 2021 State Boys Golf Tournament. The championships will be held Friday and Saturday, June 18-19 at University Ridge Golf Course in Madison. The practice round is scheduled on June 17.

In other action items, The Board and Executive Staff engaged in an introductory discussion on various options to retain and generate revenue, as well as contain expenses for 2020-21 without severely impacting services to member schools. Among the recommended considerations to implement for one year include increasing ticket prices for all tournament events $1 at all levels, reducing tournament travel reimbursements, decrease revenue sharing with tournament hosts, conducting online organizational committee meetings incorporated with a reduction in meeting travel reimbursement, and requiring hosts to charge admission at all spring tournament sectional events.
