Georgia High School Association’s latest advisory: (From Dr. Robin Hines, executive director)

The GHSA and the Sports Medicine Advisory Council appreciates our member schools’ continued efforts in the successful implementation of the Coronavirus Guidance Plan.

As I am sure you are all aware, the Board of Trustees voted Monday to move back the start of the football season two weeks later. This does not affect the start of acclimatization or the first date of practice. Scrimmages and games are pushed back two weeks, practice remains the same. In order to keep Girls Flag Football aligned with 11-man football championships, the season has been slightly adjusted (dates are on the GHSA web site). All other Fall sports and activities will remain as scheduled on the original calendar.

After our meeting today, the GHSA has elected to utilize the following Guidance for Acclimatization and Practice with recommendations and/or restrictions.

The GHSA Office is expecting all schools to continue reporting any and all Positive COVID-19 cases (list positive test date, athlete or coach, and sport) results since June 8th to Don Corr at don.corr@ghsa.net.

In addition to the positive cases, we are requesting you report any and all individuals who have been screened out of any conditioning workouts (list date screened out, athlete or coach, and sport) to Don Corr at don.corr@ghsa.net.

Recommendations and restrictions are fluid and subject to change.  Safety must be our top priority.

Thanks for all you and your staff do for the student/athletes in the State of Georgia.

PRO NOTES

The Atlanta Falcons will have limited capacity of up to 10,000-20,0000 seats at Mercedes-Benz Stadium this year; masks a must. The Falcons have also informed season ticket members of two new financial options meant to provide relief from any economic difficulty fans may be facing. Per NFL protocols, all ticketholders must wear face covering at all times once inside the stadium.

The first financial option is an extended personal seat license (PSL) repayment. Those fans who are current on their 2020 PSL payments can extend their payment terms for one year and not be charged a principle and interest payment in 2021. Fans with a current balance for their 2020 PSL payments can delay those payments until 2021 and extend their payment terms for one year.

In addition to the extended PSL repayment plan, the Falcons will offer season ticket credits. The team will apply 2020 season ticket funds toward tickets for limited capacity games with any unused credits remaining in a fan’s account as a credit towards PSL balances or 2021 season ticket payments. Fans will also have the option to receive a refund of any unused funds if desired.

If a season ticket member decides to keep season ticket credit on his or her account, the pricing for 2021 season tickets will remain flat, regardless of any attendance to 2020 home games. For those season ticket members who have paid some or all ticket charges for 2020 but choose not to attend any games, the unused funds on their accounts will be credited towards any PSL balances or 2021 ticket payments with the option to receive a refund.
