June Signing Period for HS Athletes

The GACA is against a June signing period

The Georgia Athletic Coaches Association would like to make a public statement in regards to the potential June signing period for high school football players. Navigating the current recruiting calendar is already a difficult task for High School Football Coaches in Georgia. The GACA is against a June signing period and feel it will cause more issues for the high school programs and is not healthy for our game. A June signing period could lead to a large increase in kids re-classifying, which will cause a number of issues. We hope the decision makers will appreciate our concerns as a coach’s association in Georgia and that many other state associations share the same concerns about the June signing period.
