UIL Legislative council approves changes


The University Interscholastic League Legislative Council met Tuesday, June 12, to make decisions on proposed rule changes in UIL academics, athletics, music and policy.

In athletics, the council approved the strengthening of penalties for players who are ejected from a contest, modified scrimmage start dates for baseball and softball. The council also modified fall practice regulations and spring training for football.

Additionally, the council approved a proposal to extend the pilot program that allows an exception for broadcasts of UIL events. This will allow the UIL to approve one Friday night for telecast of a regular season football game or games.

All rule changes approved by the legislative council can be found on the UIL website at


The changes, once approved by the commissioner of education, will become effective on the date indicated at the bottom of each proposal.
