Rules Meeting Updates

Hey friends — I just wanted to give a brief update on the rules change process and where things stand since I’m getting lots of questions.  I did attend this years’ meeting, and I was pleased to see how well things went.  Our sport was in some very capable and concerned hands.  I was under the impression last week that this meeting was the final say and we’d be able to talk about the approved changes, but that’s not the case.  The board will still have to make final changes and approval.  The league has asked me to not disclose any of the results or discussion from the meeting until that time (for clarity’s sake), so everyone will just have to wait until the final stamp goes out from the league board on June 1.  There may even be a few items that take longer than that.


In an effort to get things right and have clear communication about EXACTLY what each change will be, we’re going to have to wait for the MSHSL to present these changes first before anyone else makes comment.  At that time, we’ll have plenty of discussion and I’ll try to get some Q/A sessions and ideas going for team education on the changes.  Look for new podcast interviews next month too.  Stay positive and sit tight DTers!  It’s going to be an awesome 2015-16, we just need to let this process happen.  Next update coming the first week of June!
