Each year all MSHSAA Member schools must have summertime dead period per By Law 1.5:
" 1.5.1 Summertime Dead Period: All member schools shall establish a summertime dead period for all MSHSAA-sponsored activities which meets the requirements listed below.
1.5.2 Definition of the Summertime Dead Period: A period of defined length in which no contact takes place between school coaches/directors of MSHSAA-sponsored activities and students enrolled in the member school, or who will be enrolled in the member school during the next school year. Further, during the dead period school facilities are not utilized by enrolled
students in connection with any sport or activity governed by MSHSAA. The dead period is a “no school activities time”; no open gyms, competitions, practices, conditioning, weight training; no activity-related functions or fundraisers, camps or clinics at school facilities or sponsored elsewhere by the school; no coaches/directors or students may have planned contact other than casual, normal community, non-activity contact.
