WRMJ Audio: Rockridge’s Nelson Okay With Kids Playing IHSA & Travel Ball Simultaneously

Should student-athletes be allowed to play on their school team and travel team at the same time? That’s an issue getting attention from the IHSA as it relates to softball, baseball, soccer and volleyball. The IHSA board discussed the issue this week, but tabled a final decision, awaiting feedback from coaches. Rockridge softball coach John Nelson believes kids should be allowed to do both–play travel ball and IHSA ball if the seasons collide.  He spoke with WRMJ Sports Director Jim Taylor Wednesday morning.
