Rules updates

Two rules revisions involving the competitor’s uniform, along with procedural changes in several field events designed to reduce the risk of injury, highlight rules changes in high school track and field and cross country for the 2022 season.

Updates on concussions

While concussions and suspected head injuries occur only occasionally in track and field, they do happen. Although MIAA rules do not specifically indicate a role for officials, they should continue the best practice of ensuring that the event is stopped if an athlete is suspected of suffering a head injury and should facilitate the call for and access for medical personnel. For more information, updates on rules and resources, please see Concussions.
