    Re: Practice Start Dates

    Why do some schools wait so long to start practice?

    CU's first game is Aug 31, perhaps their late start has something to do with it.

    It still seems like you'd want to get as many practices in as possible, is there a limit to the number you can have prior to the first game?

    This ain't intramurals brother.

    I would think practicing before school starts would be a plus also.

    i believe it is the number of hours not practices prior to your first game.

    some choose longer practices, hence they start later.. while other want shorter days with more days... and then anything in and between.

    Actually I think it is practice sessions that are counted. A few years ago the NCAA started doing away with 2-a-days on consecutive days, so the 1 practice day for some places was 3-3.5 hours.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
