ATHLETIC CLEARANCE PROCEDURES:

All student-athletes must have athletic clearance prior to participation. Athletic Packets are available in the main office and Athletic Training Room during summer months, or in the College & Career Center and Athletic Training Room during the school year (August-May). Contents of the packets include:
1. Moanalua High School Athletic Department Parent Athlete Handbook
2. Athletic Participation Procedures
3. Parent Consent Liability Form for Participation
4. Department of Education Physical Examination Form
5. Processing Fee ($10.00) in an envelope 
(checks made out to Moanalua High School)
6. Athletic Department Booster Club Membership Form (Donation $10-$105) 
 (checks made out to MoHs Athletic Booster Club)

Completed forms (Parent Consent and Liability Form, Processing fee of $10.00, and DOE Physical Form) must be turned in to the Athletic Training Room or the Athletic Department tray in the Main Office. A pink slip will be available for pick up in the Athletic Training Room, after school, when the forms are processed (24 hours within receipt of packet). This pink slip is the athletic clearance to participate and is good for 1 school year. Pink slips must be given to the head coaches prior to participation. Student athletes who are already athletically cleared and wish to try out or participate in another sport during the school year must obtain another copy of their pink slip (athletic clearance). 
Our priority is with the athletes who are in season and have completed the clearance process (pink slips are processed once the "rush" is out).
While it seems we're doing it constantly, please encourage your returning athletes to get their pink slips/clearance ahead of time.


Process to obtain additional pink slip
1. Call or make request from Athletic Trainers (837-8065 or Bldg S across from locker room)
2. Pink Slips will be ready for pick up at the Athletic Training Room 24 hours after they receive your packet.

Mahalo for your cooperation.
Aloha,

NEWS RELEASE

NATIONAL FEDERATION OF STATE

HIGH SCHOOL ASSOCIATIONS

Rules Changes Approved for High School

Track and Field, Cross Country

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Becky Oakes

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (July 7, 2015) – Beginning with the 2016 high school track
and field season, the head starter (or designee), rather than the implement
inspector, shall inspect all starting blocks used in the running events.

The addition of Article 4 to Rule 3-6 was one of eight changes recommended
by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Track
and Field Rules Committee at its June 15-17 meeting in Indianapolis. The
committee’s recommendations were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.

“The committee did significant work in cleaning up some confusion regarding
trials and passes by expanding terms contained in definitions,” said Becky
Oakes, NFHS director of sports and liaison to the Track and Field Rules
Committee. “Likewise, changes were made to include the use of flags in field
events and update cross country rules to reflect the current trends in the sport.”

Rules 6-1-1 through 5 were amended to expand and clarify the definitions
for trials/attempts in throwing events. Rule 6-2-9 concerning a competitor’s
initiation of a trial was consequently affected by the change. Similar
revisions were made to Rules 7-1-1 through 7 and Rule 7-2-12 so the same
clarification and expansion of definitions apply.

Other significant track and field rules changes included the revision of
Rule 3-10-7. The rule now states that “the head event judge may be equipped
with both a white and red flag” to signal whether a throwing attempt is fair
or foul. The change will allow for more efficient administration of field
events and for improved communication between officials, coaches and fans, Oakes said.

In cross country, Rule 9-3-3 was revised to recommend the use of a video or
photograph to verify the order of finish in races in which the timing system
indicates a differential of one-tenth of a second or less. Having the video
as a back-up and a process in place for problems that may arise from the use
of a computerized transponder/chip system is a good solution, Oakes said.

Added to Rule 9-3 is the recommendation of a finish corral at cross country
meets where transponders are used for the order of finish.

Other changes to cross country included an addition to Rule 9-1-3, which
now allows the use of double painted boundary lines and/or natural or
artificial boundary markers as an alternative method to mark the course for
both runners and spectators.

The remaining changes to track and field concern equipment standards. Rule
6-5-2 was added, specifying the maximum allowed diameter for indoor shot put
to account for the synthetic cover that is not present on the outdoor
implement. Rule 6-6-1 was revised to allow for the use of newer javelin
materials such as carbon fiber. Finally, Rule 7-6-3 was altered to recommend
that the takeoff board for long jump and triple jump be eight inches wide,
but still allow for larger boards.

Track and field is the second-most popular sport for boys with 580,321
participants in 16,271 schools and is the No. 1 sport for girls with 478,885
participants in 16,217 schools during the 2013-14 season, according to the
NFHS Athletics Participation Survey. Cross country is the seventh-most
popular sport for boys with 252,547 participants in 14,473 schools and is
the sixth-most popular sport for girls with 218,121 participants in 14,267 schools.

This press release was written by Brandon Jones, a summer intern in the

NFHS Publications and Communications Department and a junior at Indiana University Bloomington. 


Prohibition of Jewelry Lifted in High School Track and Field

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                   Contact: Becky Oakes

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (July 14, 2014) — Effective with the 2015 high school track and field season, the prohibition of jewelry will be eliminated. This was one of several rules changes recommended by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Track and Field Rules Committee at its June 16-18 meeting in Indianapolis. The committee’s recommendations were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.

Becky Oakes, NFHS director of sports and liaison to the Track and Field Rules Committee, said the committee determined that prohibiting jewelry in high school track and field and cross country is not necessary.

“The wearing of jewelry ordinarily presents little risk of injury to either the competitor or opponents,” Oakes said. “Elimination of the rule allows officials to focus on meet administration directly related to actual competition. Coaches continue to have the obligation to see that competitors are properly equipped.”

In other changes, language regarding the time limit to initiate a trial in the throwing and jumping events was revised. Previously, competitors in these events had to initiate a trial and carry it to completion within one minute. Beginning next year, participants must only initiate the trial within the one-minute time limit. Completion of the event will be allowed beyond the prescribed time.

Another change was made in field events involving implements. In events such as the shot put, discus, javelin and pole vault, an additional trial will be allowed when an implement breaks – and thus becomes illegal – during competition due to no fault of the competitor.

The revised note in Rules 6-2-17 and 7-2-17reads as follows: “If a legal implement breaks during an attempt in accordance with the rules, no penalty shall be counted against the competitor and a replacement trial shall be awarded. If the implement breaks upon completion of the trial, a replacement attempt shall not be awarded and the results of the trial shall be recorded, provided it was made in accordance with the rules.”

In the discus throw, it no longer will be a foul if a competitor is out of control when exiting the back half of the circle. Also, in the discus, shot put and javelin, the requirement for the judge to call “mark” was eliminated.

Another change involves the high jump and pole vault events. A new article in Rule 7-2 will state that “a crossbar displaced by a force disassociated with the competitor after he/she is legally and clearly over the crossbar shall not be a fault and is considered a successful attempt.”

In Rule 8 involving special events, the committee approved the 1,500-meter run as an alternate for the 1,600-meter run in the decathlon and pentathlon. Oakes said when using the IAAF standard scoring, the 1,500-meter run is the standard distance. In addition, the indoor weight throw was approved for the listing of special events.

The final change involves Rule 1-4 on indoor track. Since many indoor meets are held in college facilities, the committee approved the 60-meter high hurdles and dash as alternates for the 55-meter high hurdles and dash. Oakes said this option eliminates special marking of the facilities for the hurdles and dash.

Track and field is the second-most popular sport for boys with 580,672 participants in 16,001 schools and is the No. 1 sport for girls with 472,939 participants in 15,962 schools during the 2012-13 season, according to the NFHS Athletics Participation Survey.

Free Online Course – The Role of the Parent in Sports – Now Available

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 
Contact: Tim Flannery

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (October 19, 2010) — A new online education course – The Role of the Parent in Sports – is now available through the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) at www.nfhslearn.com.

Similar to the Concussion in Sports – What You Need to Know online course released in May, the new parent course is being offered at no cost. Anyone can register for the free course at www.nfhslearn.com

“Parents of students who participate in athletics make a huge difference in the quality of the sport experience for their sons and daughters,” said Tim Flannery, NFHS assistant director who directs the NFHS Coach Education Program. “Parents unintentionally spoil the educational experience of their children at times by the way they talk to them after games, behave in the stands and interact with coaches and officials. This online course provides information and resources to help parents understand their role in ensuring an educational experience for their son or daughter.” 

The NFHS Coach Education Program was started in 2007, and more than 140,000 coaches have taken the core course — Fundamentals of Coaching. Forty-five of the 51 NFHS member associations have adopted the course.

In addition to the core courses (Fundamentals of Coaching and NFHS First Aid for Coaches), eight sport-specific courses are available in football, basketball, soccer, softball, cheer and dance, spirit safety, wrestling and volleyball. The program also includes four elective courses and the two free courses.

The NFHS offers coaches the ability to become Level 1 certified as an Accredited Interscholastic Coach. In addition to the Fundamentals of Coaching course, coaches must complete NFHS First Aid for Coaches, or its equivalent, and one of the sport-specific courses or Teaching Sport Skills, and then can apply for certification online.

All NFHS coach education courses are available at www.nfhslearn.com
