On Tuesday, June 4, at the final regularly scheduled meeting of the 2023-24 school year, the Florida High School Athletics Association board of directors voted to unanimously pass a NIL proposal that will begin during the 2024-25 school year.

This decision grants Florida high school student-athletes the ability to earn money from their name, image and likeness; such as in a commercial or sponsorship deal without being deemed ineligible. 

The proposal, which was submitted as an action item for this meeting by Executive Director Craig Damon, details new language in the FHSAA Bylaws, section 9.9 to be specific, which deals with laying out the governing body’s amateurism policy.
