Assessing the Legality of State Tournament Bans in Interscholastic Athletics
Scott, Beau
Physical Educator, v74 n4 2017
State high school athletic associations are tasked with facilitating equitable athletic opportunities for all member schools. To accomplish this task, state associations implement rules designed to ensure competitive balance (Johnson, Tracy, & Pierce, 2015). With over 7.8 million participants, interscholastic athletics are extremely popular and garner the attention of millions of spectators each year (National Federation of State High School Associations, 2015). Stakeholders (e.g., coaches, parents, athletic directors) often challenge policies and sanctions by state associations based on how these restrictions affect interested teams or athletes. This review examines St. Patrick High School's (St. Patrick) case against the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) regarding sanctions given to the school for breaking association rules regarding out-of-season open gyms.
