The UIL staff addressed the TABC board and reviewed the Legislative Council and how rules are added or amended. They reminded of HB 547 allowing homeschool athletes to participate with the approval of their local school board. They were happy to announce that invitational tournaments and pre district and district schedules will be restored including the regional and state tournaments in 2021-22. The state tournament will be held at the Alamodome in San Antonio and tickets will go on sale soon. Head coverings for religious reasons are allowed but cannot be made of abrasive or hard materials and must fit snugly so that it is not likely to come off during play. Head coverings for medical purposes must be applied for and accompanied by a physician’s note.
By a vote of superintendents class 1A districts will qualify 4 teams for the playoffs.
