As the High School Golf season has began in Arkansas this week, efforts from the Arkansas Activities Association are continuing to move ahead with other Fall Sports this season.
Lance Taylor, Executive Director of AAA, joined the “Community Partyline” program on BOOTZ Country Thursday said that the committee Governor Asa Hutchinson tasked to come up with a plan to safely allow activities like Football, Volleyball, and Cheerleading to continue has met twice this week and has recommended that Football Schools be allowed to start Contact Practices this weekend. Governor Hutchinson is expected to announce his decision on that later today.
Taylor also talked about the safety of players that have been involved with their school teams as compared to those on traveling squads.
Taylor thinks with the Guidelines the state set down for schools during their practice should help keep them healthy and reduce the risk for teams that might travel to “hot spot” areas of the state for COVID-19.
