CHSAA Board of Directors approves drone policy

The Colorado High School Activities Association Board of Directors approved the following policy on the use of drones at interscholastic events:

The use of drones, also known as unmanned aerial vehicles, is prohibited for any purpose by any persons at all CHSAA‐sanctioned events, unless express written permission is obtained:

1. From the host school district during regular season contests.

(or)

2. The CHSAA for any postseason/playoff contest.

This policy includes not only the restricted playing area of the venue(s), but also the physical confines of the entire stadium/field/arena structure.

For the purposes of this policy, a drone is any aircraft without a human pilot on board.
