MPA to allow athletes to compete in more elite events

The Maine Principals' Association, the MPA Ski Committee, and legislators have agreed to give athletes more opportunities to compete at elite events.  The agreement includes:

1) provide two waivers per season for each athlete to the “bona fide team” rule,
2) allow coaches of elite athletes to attend elite events with athletes, and to assist them,
3) permit skiers and their coaches to attend the four elite Eastern Cup races without use of a waiver, and 
4) explain the above rule changes to all coaches and ADs in their annual newsletters
