SDHSAA Votes Against Freeman/Canistota Co-op

Friday, August 28, 2015

On Thursday morning, the South Dakota High School Activities Association voted 6-2 against a cooperative agreement between the Freeman & Canistota football programs. Earlier this month, Freeman shut down their program for the next two seasons due to lack of participation. Last week, the Canistota School Board discussed & approved a cooperative agreement to allow those from Freeman a place to play this season.

The stipulation of the cooperative between both schools hinged on that Canistota would not jump from their current 9A rank to a higher class. According to SDHSAA Executive Assistant Director John Krogstrand, if Canistota were to acquire Freeman’s players it would put them over the 9-man limit essentially forcing them into a higher class.

With the decision, Freeman still plans on fielding a junior varsity team this season. This is the second time this month that the SDHSAA has dealt with this issue, the first coming in mid-August with Miller & Highmore-Harrold.

SDHSAA Gives Nod To Transgender Athlete Rule Changes

Friday, August 28, 2015

(From AP)

The South Dakota High School Activities Association has taken the first step to change its policy on transgender student participation in athletics amid concerns among state lawmakers about the rules. The association's board of directors gave first approval Thursday to the revisions, which would be finalized at a later meeting.

The policy provides a way for transgender students to request to participate on the team reflecting their gender identities. Some lawmakers unsuccessfully attempted to void the policy in 2015. A legislative committee voted last week to prepare a proposal for the 2016 session to require that students play on the team matching the gender listed on their birth certificates. Activities association board members in June directed further revisions to the presented policy, in part based on concerns from legislators.

NDSU To Provide Athlete Stipends

Friday, August 28, 2015

(From AP)

North Dakota State says it will start providing stipends to scholarship athletes in all 16 sports beginning next year with a goal of paying the full cost of attending college. Officials with the school that has won four straight Football Championship Subdivision titles say the anticipated additional cost will be up to $3,400 per full scholarship. The proposal to help players with miscellaneous expenses originated with the most powerful conferences at the Football Bowl Subdivision level. Those schools approved the legislation in January. NDSU officials say they believe that Liberty University is the only other mid-major offering cost of attendance scholarships for all sports.
