07-19-2011 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #36


Title
Friends of Brevard Lacrosse

Discussion

This agenda is for the School Board Members to discuss information received by Friends of Brevard High School Lacrosse.

Currently the lacrosse teams of Eau Gallie, Merritt Island, Satellite, West Shore and Viera High School were playing as a club as directed by the district. In June, the FHSAA plans to enforce a rule for the 2011-2012 school year which states that member schools cannot play as a club if the FHSAA recognizes or sanctions a sport. Lacrosse is a recognized sport by FHSAA.  Therefore, the Lacrosse teams of Brevard county are in violation of this FHSAA rule.

The request from the Friends of Brevard Lacrosse is to gain approval for lacrosse in Brevard High Schools as an FHSAA sport. All expenses for the lacrosse teams will be covered by external funding sources.
