    So I'm hearing rumors that the powers that be are cracking down on 7on7?

    So I was told today, that if a High School player plays 7 on 7 during the Spring season for someone, other than their High School, they are ineligible to play in the Fall for their High School? They said that it was anew rule that was implemented this year. Has anyone else heard of this?

    That seems like it would be unenforceable to me. How can you restrict what someone does on their own time and initiative? That would be like telling basketball players they are not allowed to play AAU basketball.

    I agree, but I know football is a totally different beast

    There is already a rule in place that they can not play in the Fall during Football season.

    Im not understanding this, there is a rule currently that no High School 7 on 7's can compete in the spring so how could they play for their school team?

    Coaches association didn't give it up. AD's and the reps of the schools voted in favor...not the same thing!

    It was an agreement between the basketball and football coaching associations

    For June yes. Spring is another monster I don't agree with.
    a lot of gray area there. Football gave up June.

    Ah! And who were the ADs at these schools? The same ones heading their respective coaches associations. I give basketball association leaders credit. They know how to negotiate

    Bingo, already a rule against school 7 on 7...now a rule against non school 7 on 7. Basically shutting it down completely during that period.

    Other than that brief time is there any other time basketball can't be together for team activities?
