    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
