2015-16 Season Limitations Changes

November 12th, 2014

In August the CIAC Board of Control approved changes for the season limitations and practice dates for the 2015-16 season beginning in the fall 2015. The changes were approved after the 2014-15 CIAC Handbook went to print, therefore the on-line edition has incorrect dates listed for 2015-16. The CIAC has attempted to share the correct dates as widely as possible and they will be correct in the next edition of the CIAC Handbook, but in[...]
