The new NCAA proposed schedule allows Clemson football to meet earlier than normal
We will see the Clemson football team on the practice field and in the film room a little earlier than we’re used to.
The NCAA Football Oversight Committee has prepared a four-phase plan for the season that is pending final approval from the Division 1 Council. The council is scheduled to meet June 17, according to 247 Sports.
Here’s a look at what the plan details and how it would affect Clemson football:
- Teams with seasons beginning Labor Day Weekend can begin working with their players in-person as early as July 13. (July 6 for Week 0 teams)
- Teams will be allowed to use a football in drills starting July 24 (July 17 for Week 0 teams) as they have walk-throughs and meetings. Their countable hours can total up 20 per week.
- Preseason practices can begin as soon as August 7 or 29 games before the team’s first game.
What will the summer look like for Clemson football?
Clemson football players are already on campus and going through workouts. They were tested upon arrival back on campus and two Tigers tested positive.
The team is currently going through voluntary workouts with the strength & conditioning coaches and will continue do so until the week of the 4th of July. The players will be able to enjoy the holiday before returning and beginning mandatory workouts on July 13.
From that point on, Clemson football will in full swing.
The players will have workouts, go through film study and have walk-throughs for the rest of the summer before beginning Fall Camp on August 7.
It will be interesting to see what the Tigers are able to accomplish during the ‘Transformation Phase’ this summer as we continue to inch closer to the start of the season.
