All Dawson County school athletic programs participated in the Georgia High School Association’s annual mandatory “dead-week” that takes place at roughly the same time every year. By-Law 2.69 (b) of the 2018-2019 Georgia High School Association’s Constitution and By-Laws states: “During the summer (i.e., between the ending of one school year and the beginning of the next) the only restrictions on practices and competition are that all activities must be strictly voluntary, and the “Dead Week” must be observed, as follows: Schools are prohibited from participating in voluntary workouts, camps and/or clinics, weight training or competitions during the week (Sunday through Saturday) in which the Fourth of July falls each year.”
