The Indiana High School Athletic Association’s new rule will take effect in the 2013-2014 school year.

“Today, the IHSAA Board of Directors expanded the opportunity for additional high school-aged students in our state to experience the values of education-based athletics,” Commissioner Bobby Cox said in a statement.

The new rule a non-public, non-accredited student – which could be a child who is home-schooled or one at a non-accredited private school – the opportunity to try out for a high school team, if the athlete meets certain conditions.

“I am very pleased that the board of directors has embraced this concept as our association continues its pursuit of becoming more inclusive while maintaining appropriate academic standards,” Cox said.

The new rule includes a number of conditions designed to ensure that the spirit of the IHSAA’s eligible rules aren’t compromised, the group said.

That means students must pass a physical exam, participate in the required number of practices for the sport, have been home schooled for at least the three previous years, complete all standardized tests required of public school students, submit grade information and be enrolled at the public school for a minimum of one class per day.
