This will be a huge change to how many schools operate fall camp:

Heat-Acclimatization Regulations for SDHSAA Football

1. Days 1 through 5 of the heat-acclimatization period consist of the first 5 days of formal practice. During this time,
athletes may not participate in more than 1 practice per day.
2. If a practice is interrupted by inclement weather or heat restrictions, the practice should recommence once conditions are deemed safe. Total practice time should not exceed 3 hours in any 1 day.
3. A 1-hour maximum walk-through is permitted during days 1–5 of the heat-acclimatization period. However, a
3-hour recovery period should be inserted between the practice and walk-through (or vice versa). The only pieces
of player equipment to be worn by the individuals during the walk-through are shoes and helmets. The only pieces of general equipment to be used during the walk-through are footballs and kicking tees.
4. During days 1 & 2 of the heat-acclimatization period, helmets are the only protective equipment permitted.
During days 3 & 4, only helmets and shoulder pads permitted. Beginning on day 5, all protective equipment may be worn.
5. Beginning no earlier than day 6 and continuing through day 14 or the first scheduled varsity game, double-practice days must be followed by a single- practice day. On single-practice days, a 1-hour maximum walk-through is permitted, separated from the practice by at least 3 hours of continuous rest. When a double-practice day is followed by a rest day, another double- practice day is permitted after the rest day. Following the initial 14 days or varsity game, this restriction is removed.
6. On a double-practice day, neither practice should exceed 3 hours in duration, and student-athletes should not participate in more than 5 total hours of practice. Warm-up, stretching, cool-down, walk-through, conditioning, and weight-room activities are included as part of the practice time. The 2 practices should be separated by at least 3 continuous hours in a cool environment.
7. Because the risk of exertional heat illnesses during the preseason heat-acclimatization period is high, we strongly
recommend that an medical personnel be on site before, during, and after all practices when possible.
