Football Scheduling Calendar


TSSAA Member Schools have 11 weeks to play 10 football games.  Each region’s recommended playing dates should be set in the following format: 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2.  All regions should follow this order in scheduling region games first.  Please remember that all contracts should be two-year contracts.

The purpose of this calendar is to designate officially the first Friday on which a game may be played. For example, if school A is playing school B on Aug. 25, 2017, the second game of the two-year contract will by played on Aug. 24, 2018.

While the dates given for the first game are for Friday, it is possible for a school to play its first game on the Wednesday preceding that Friday.

The date on which each of the two games is to be played should be shown on the contract and should follow this scheduling calendar. It is mandatory that all TSSAA schools use this calendar in scheduling football games.
