SDHSAA keeps public informed of state tournament details

Posted: Updated:

The location of state tournaments is a hot topic in South Dakota, and rumors that they will soon all being moving to Sioux Falls are not accurate.

Wednesday the state Senate passed a bill that will force the South Dakota High School Athletic Association (SDHSAA) to follow state laws of open meetings. The SDHSAA has always followed these laws, but the push from the legislature will make them release more information to the public.

"We've had some large important topics come up, and I don't think the public thought that they had enough information that was being supplied by the activities association," said SDHSAA board member Mike Miller.

One of these important topics included the moving of big state tournaments to the new Dennys Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls. Miller is not convinced this will be happening anytime soon.

"The big issue is talking about moving all the bigger tournaments to Sioux Falls, and quite frankly, I don't see that coming in the near future," he said. "I don't think the current board really has that in their mind."

If tournaments ever are moved, the public will be well aware. The "open-meeting" bill now moves on to the House of Representatives for consideration.
