IMMEDIATE REPEAL OF THE “OUT OF SEASON” AND “OPEN FACILITY POLICIES”
The ASAA “out of season” contact and “open facility” policies do allow for coaches to work with students year around on a limited bases for purposes of conditioning and individual instruction. Additionally, the “out of season” contact restrictions are suspended each year from May 20 to July 31. As ASAA wants to bring these policies into alignment with the State of Alaska Health Mandates, THIS IS NO LONGER THE CASE.
As of April 10, 2020, ASAA is prohibiting all out of season contact, including “open facility”. This also prohibits the use of school facilities and coaches from organizing or directing workouts and practices.
