The MSHSAA Fall Sport No Contact Period will be Aug 5-Aug 11, 2019.  Below you will find the excerpt out of the MSHSAA Handbook which describes in detail what the Period entails. 

Fall Sport No-Contact Period: The seven days prior to the first allowable practice date for the fall season shall be a seasonal no-contact period in which no “contact” as defined in By-Law 3.15.1.c takes place between school coaches of MSHSAA sponsored fall sports and students enrolled in the member school, or who will be enrolled in the member school during the upcoming school year.

Definition of Contact Day: A day of contact is defined as any date on which any coaching or instruction in the skills and techniques of any sport takes place, regardless of whether activity-specific equipment is used. Any of the following would count as a day of contact – school competition, non-school competition, practice, review or chalkboard sessions, open
facility, camp/clinic, evaluation events, group lessons, private lessons. Conditioning/Strength activities will not count as a contact day, as long as the activity adheres to the provisions outlined in By-Law 3.14.7.a - h. Simply being at a school facility will not count as a day of contact unless both coach and student are there and the sport (as defined above) is
taking place.
