when do the new districts come out?

The only information that I have seen is what is available on the FHSAA website.  The most recent Board of Directors meeting took place on November 5-6.  At that time, it appears the new classification proposal was discussed, and an official vote planned "at a later time".  It seems that a decision would need to be made fairly soon, so that districts could be determined, and 2024 schedules planned.  I would suspect the FHSAA is waiting for the championships to be completed this week, and then proceed with decisions for next year.  The FHSAA has updated its enrollment numbers for the 2023-24 school year to use in the reclassification process.  For those who are interested, you can check out enrollment numbers here: https://fhsaa.com/sports/2021/12/3/SchoolEnrollmentNumbers.aspx

Not sure if it means anything. FHSAA posted they are having a meeting on the 12th. I clicked on the agenda they had a lot of red with things crossed out and other things added in red. Does this meeting they are meeting and voting on the new stuff? Or have they already decided on the new things?

It sounds like they have a working document in process. Not sure if the intent is to have it ready for a vote in that meeting.

This document is a draft of proposed revisions to the FHSAA Administrative Policies, which govern its athletic programs.  I would suspect this has been vetted already and will be voted on at this meeting.  The Reader's Digest version for those who don't want to wade through the document.

  1. 8 total classifications (1A-7A + Rural); assigned by student population.
  2. Regular season district games not required.
  3. Teams can schedule 8 games through Week 9. 
  4. After Week 9, the 4 highest ranked teams in each district by computer rankings enter a district tournament.  Two district semifinal games played in Week 10; winners play in Week 11 for district championship; losers of district semifinal games play in Week 11.
  5. All other teams not in district tournament may schedule games in Week 10 and Week 11.
  6. At the conclusion of the district tournaments, the 8 highest ranked teams by the computer rankings will be placed in the Open Division.
  7. 4 district champions and 4 at-large teams by the computer rankings qualify in each region.

Again, this is a draft proposal and subject to change.

I kinda like this idea. Other than the fact they should just scrap rural and put those teams in 1A and 2A according to their enrollment since there's no required district games. 

For the bigger districts, just have the district tournament at a neutral site.

dont qualify for dist tourney,

scheduling 2 games will be very tough, with kids who may be mentally out of it because they didnt make post season.  

lots of teams have rivalry games last 2 weeks of season,  to keep some focus in a bad/tough season.

and theroritcally,

you could play the same team 3x

during the season, dist tourney, playoffs(round 2 or beyond).

not that it doesnt happen in nfl, but thats crazy,

    • Most of what would be sent is nearly impossible to prosecute. I mean, if a fan direct messages a kid and says "hey, you should come play for Venice. We really need you!", who/what do you expect to be done? It's a fan sending a simple message. Same thing if it's a 16 year-old boy who plays on the team sending the message. Those kinds of messages may or may not be persuasive. But, I don't see how you could justify some sort of penalty. Especially given the fact that some rival schools may use a little photoshop and make up images of such messages. Ultimately, I think it is highly debatable as to whether the above is even wrong morally. As I've said, the picture many have in their minds of "recruiting" often doesn't match reality. Fans may picture a creepy old man hiding in some bushes who pops out and offers a kid a stack of cash if he transfers. That's not reality, at least not in the 2020s.
    • The biggest factor for Tarpon Springs was the folding of the Clearwater Academy football program. The head coach for CAI was picked up as OC at TS. His QB, who started at TS, followed him back there as did some other good players. This influx made the program much more attractive. And, there really aren't a lot of great alternatives in the immediate area for football. There's no program with such a great resume and such great resources that they can win recruiting battles for players.  Many of the CAI players shopped around at a wider range of programs. But, most of the CAI kids needed housing and/or a program near CAI. I believe it's possible some/all of the CAI transfers may still attend and receive housing at CAI. They'd be allowed to play at TS even while not attending the school since CAI doesn't offer football anymore.
    • Well, I think the result SHOULD influence rankings. BUT, in states where the NFL is king (California being a prime example), people think the KOC is akin to an NFL exhibition. It's a ridiculous assumption in many cases. But, many seem determined not to change their minds. 
    • Tbh I’m with you. As an avid Dillard high alum, former player & fan. So many years I wished that we had the transfer portal & the championships that came with it of a Miami central , Miami northwestern , Sta. To see Dillard high when a state title in football in my lifetime would be one of the proudest moments in my life.    but at the same time I’m also old school where if you wanted to be the BEST you beat the best. I come from an era “90’s” where there were no super teams (To my Knowledge). There was pride and tradition to play for your HOME school & bring success to said school. now everyone wants microwave success aka super teams. No loyalty to the school what so ever everyone just load up at 1 school and make winning the championship as easy as possible. 
    • KOC, first game to start the season, or scrimmage….Both teams will leave it all in the field. Both teams will be 0-0 after this game but don’t think for a second it won’t influence the national polls!!!!
