MHSAA answers limits on competition questions

LANSING - It’s been a tough go for everyone getting games in this spring, and the Michigan High School Athletic Association has been getting questions about limits on competition as it relates to trying to get make-up contests played.

Here’s a rundown on the daily and weekly competition limits for spring sports:

Baseball and softball - No more than two games per school day. No weekly limitations.

Golf - No daily or weekly limitations.

Track and field - An individual is limited to four events in a single meet. No weekly limitations.

Soccer - An individual is limited to one game per school day. No more than three games in one week, Monday through Sunday, for a team or individual. (NOTE - This excludes single-day, multi-team tournaments on non-school days with a limit of 180 minutes of play)

Tennis - An individual is limited to three matches per day, except in a league championship meet existing of more than eight schools, where a fourth match would complete the tournament and the player has not played in more than six sets in the first three rounds.

MHSAA Handbook regulations do allow for regular-season games to be played until the end of the tournament series in each sport if a school has not exhausted its available dates or games.
