    Florida put in a plan to start doing this next year for weightlifting, baseball and football. What other states are testing, or do they have other plans to deal with it. I know NJ tests. Thanks in advance, and sorry if this has been discussed before.

    Every state should have testing. I've seen quite a few players over the years, who seem to gain way too much muscle over an offseason from one year to the next that it makes you wonder if they didn't have a little boost.

    Have each school pay for it. They would turn around and add it to the activity fee they charge each athlete to play.

    In Ohio, it's up to each individual school. Most of the testing in our area is of drivers and participants in extra-curricular activities, and it's for recreational drugs and not performance enhancers (we were told that would be too expensive).
  10. In Kentucky, it's up to each school.

    What activity fee? The only sport I've ever heard of that costs anything just to play is hockey, because of ice time.

    My high school growing up had fees for ASB cards. The money was put toward athletics.
    In Idaho, a lot of the small schools were going to "pay to play" where athletes had to pay $50 or more per sport they wanted to play. There were discounts for multiple sport athletes and multiple athletes in a family. The districts cited rising travel costs as the reason.
