The coaches in VA take advantage of the VHSL policy with pretty much year round 'voluntary' workouts/conditioning when not in season.

I may be misunderstanding your comment, but it sounds like you don't realize VHSL deregulated their old year-round practice restrictions a few years back. There are no rules except something like 2-3 weeks of "dead periods".

I realize coaches used to break the rules routinely because it was so easy (& zero consequences), but I don't think the current situation is the right solution. It looks even more ridiculous when compared with the more stringent NCAA rules.

For clarity, VHSL now allows official year-round practicing for HS sports.

RE: Future WBB Schedule
Just had a crazy thought. Tennessee women do an exhibition every year, just for fun, with D-II Carson-Newman University, which is some 15 miles up the road. It's always a complete rout, but the CN coach says his girls learn a lot, and everyone has a good time. It might be fun if JMU did a similar one with EMU to open the season, instead of some school in East Nowhere, WV.
