Can high school teams compete in a recreational league?

Member high school teams may not compete in a recreational league or other developed league under the auspices of the high school team.

All member schools are expected to be in full compliance with COMAR 13A.06.03 unless operating within waivers as approved by the State Board of Education. These waivers for out-of-season practice require each member school to operate within the out-of-season participation plans developed by each LSS.

Member school teams that participate in leagues or bona fide competitions outside of LSS out-of-season participation plans will lose the ability to play in modified 2nd semester sport seasons and be in violation of COMAR 13A.06.03. Member schools are reminded as of August 12, 2020, non-school team rosters coached by any paid or volunteer coach at the school may not exceed 80% of the returning players of what would constitute a starting lineup in that sport OR a modified version thereof. I.e., 7-on-7 football, 3-on-3 basketball, indoor soccer, indoor lacrosse, etc. (COMAR 13A.06.03.04E(2)).
