The Illinois High School Association approved new safety policies for football players.
IHSA officials presented the new guidelines to a house committee yesterday.
The new rules are in response to pressure from Vernon Hills state representative Carol Sente.
She wanted to limit the number of days players could tackle during practice to one day a week.
The IHSA policy requires coaches to gradually increase the number of pads players can wear and the time they can practice throughout the preseason.
The IHSA will offer interactive online meetings to answer coaches questions about the new safety policies.
