Each fall schools are required to send in their rosters to MSHSAA for the members on their teams. In the past they would be separated as JV, Varsity etc. however now they are all listed together. There is no longer a separation and members can float between squads.
So how do we figure 80% when it comes to competition?
Many teams that want to carry additional non-competitive members can do so by creating a GAME DAY Squad and a COMPETITION squad. They are all still listed on the MSHSAA roster but you are able then to basically have 2 teams. MSHSAA does not police this so it is up to you and your school how you define your teams.
When it comes to competition season we will need your competition squad numbers to base your 80% off of. This gives teams some flexibility, however I always say when you make cuts do not cut to the bare minimum. Let’s face it, illnesses happen and so do injuries. The ONLY way you can remove a member from your total (and thus changing your 80% value) is if a member quits or is no longer on your team. If a girl quits and you have an alternate on your game day team or one that isn’t performing you are always able to pull someone up. You may NOT pull someone up to add more than what you registered with. All of that is done with the add/drop form that is on our website.
