It is both refreshing and rewarding to note the leadership role coaches of high school sports in Indiana are taking in, trying to scale back the demanding practices and workouts that have come to be seen as necessary to producing winning teams.
It is even more rewarding that local coaches are in the forefront of this effort.
The Indiana Football Coaches Association is proposing the Indiana High School Athletic Association put in place regulations that would limit what coaches will be able to ask players to do. The proposed rule changes could limit the number of times that a coach can work with his players in the summer when they are wearing shoulder pads and helmets.
