Announcement: COACHES. Please read the following message sent by Richard Logan on practice rounds on weekdays before 3pm for the Regional tournaments.
I am sorry to inform you that I have been advised by Peter Contreras that you are not allowed on a school day to begin a practice round more than 1 hour before the end of your school. I thought that a starting time at about 2 p.m. would be OK, but some coaches complained that Screiner GC was having a 2:30 shotgun and I am afraid that someone may raise an issue and I don't want that to affect you or your girl's play.
If I led you astray, I apologize. If you just didn't know, see below, quoted directly from UIL rules:
-- " (7) Practice Round. Individuals and/or teams qualifying for regional and/or state golf may be permitted one practice round of 18 holes at the site of the regional and/or state golf tournament if permitted by the regional and/or state director. Schools shall not use more than one hour during the school day for practice rounds. There shall be no more than one day loss of school time involved in practice or travel in relation to practice preceding the tournament. Once a practice round has been completed, neither teams nor individuals are allowed to return to the site on another day to chip and/or putt. See Section 1206.

Announcement: A reminder to all coaches to update your highschoolgolfboard rosters with this year's kids. Many of you still have last year's rosters and coaches who run tournaments cannot input accurate results because they can't find players on school rosters. Thank you.
Announcement: Coaches: If you are or will be a tournament director this season, please remember to make copies and distribute the Spectator Rules Sheet to any and all parents and spectators, the Universal Rules Sheet to all players, and the Coaches Duties to all coaches attending your tournament. It is imperative we do this so as not to have any problems or discrepancies in our tournaments. Thank you.
