Softball and Baseball Playoffs—Bad Weather and STAAR Testing

A two-out-of-three series that does not get a complete game in by the end of the day Friday automatically reverts to a one game series. 

If one game is played and a second game cannot be played on Saturday because of weather, then the winner of game one advances to the next round.

Rain (Bad Weather) Policy

Every effort must be made by both teams to determine the winner before the certification deadline. This includes obtaining neutral sites and securing any available field. This could mean giving up a home field advantage if another field is playable.

If weather conditions make it impossible to determine a winner before certification, UIL (Baseball Director, Darryl Beasley, 512-238-0968 and Softball Director, Peter Contreras, 512-393-1958) must be contacted for an extension. No request for extension of the deadline will be considered until Saturday afternoon. If any STAAR testing of any kind is taking place in the school, no playoff game can be scheduled on that day, as required by state law. Please know your STAAR testing schedule and your opponent's STAAR testing schedule before contacting the UIL for the extension. The next round opponent(s) must also be contacted to inform them that the deadline will be extended.

Extreme scheduling difficulties such as those mentioned above could result in a coin flip which would determine the representatives to the next round.

Concussion Update: Form & Training Syllabus

Concussion Acknowledgement Form

The UIL has created this Concussion Acknowledgement Form, which will be required for all student athletes in grades 7-12 beginning with the 2012-13 school year, as a result of the passage of HB 2038 from the 2011 legislative session.  

According to section 38.155 of the Texas Education Code, 'a student may not participate in an interscholastic athletic activity for a school year until both the student and the student ’s parent or guardian or another person with legal authority to make medical decisions for the student have signed a form for that school year that acknowledges receiving and reading written information that explains concussion prevention, symptoms, treatment, and oversight andthat includes guidelines for safely resuming participation in an athletic activity following a concussion…..'

Concussion Education Training Course Syllabus

This syllabus contains an outline of the required elements for the two hour coaches’ concussion education training mandated by HB 2038 (Texas Education Code Section 38.158).  The purpose of this syllabus is to provide guidance and consistency for licensed health care providers as they develop a coaches’ education course.
