FHSAA to reduce max number of scheduled games, pending approval 

By Jason Lieser

The FHSAA has suspended scheduling pending the approval of a measure that would reduce the maximum number of scheduled games in varsity sports (except football) by 20 percent and sub varsity sports by 40 percent.


The Board of Directors will vote on this in April. Below is the chart of what the max number of games will look like if the measure is approved. It would be in effect for two years, starting with the 2009-10 season.
