UIL rules prohibit interschool athletic, academic and fine arts competition (including marching contests)
on Sunday. Academic activities may schedule practice sessions on Sunday provided such sessions receive
advance approval from the superintendent or his/her designee. Exceptions:
(1) School district personnel may instruct high school students and accompany them to school sanctioned
academic or fine arts competitions held on Sunday, that do not count on League standing, under the
following provisions: (a) school district personnel shall not accompany a student on more than four
competitions on Sunday during a school year; (b) the participation of the student, academic coach,
sponsor, or director must have prior approval of the superintendent or designated administrator; (c)
participation is limited to contests that are sponsored by colleges or universities. Exception: Robotics.
(2) UIL competitions may be held on Sunday, due to unavoidable circumstances which cause hardship to
participating schools, provided they are approved by the UIL office.
(3) If the regional and/or state golf tournaments are scheduled on a Monday, the one 18-hole practice
round allowed at the regional and/or state tournament site may be played on the Sunday afternoon
preceding the meet if permitted by the regional or state meet director.
(4) If the regional and/or state tennis tournaments are scheduled on a Monday, and if participants arrive at
the site on the preceding Sunday because of travel distance, it will not be construed a violation of this
rule if school district personnel accompany or transport participants to a tennis court for the purpose of
practicing on their own, if permitted by the regional or state meet director.
