2017 Rule Changes & Updates from NFHS: Source - www.nfhs.org

Effective with the 2017 high school track and field season, a participant who assists an injured/ill competitor shall not be disqualified if an appropriate health-care professional is not available.”

“Revised Rule 5-7-3, competitors in distance races only use a standing start and shall remain motionless for the start without their hand(s) touching the ground.”

“ Revised Rules 6-2-14 and 7-2-5, which state that all warm-ups in a field event may not take place until the venue is declared open and required supervision is in place.”

The NFHS committee also” approved a change to Rule 3-6-1, which now grants authority to disqualify a runner for a false start to the starter as well as the referee. Also, the starter will now give a signal at the beginning of the last lap in individual races of two laps or more (previously three).”

“Another change was made in Rule 3-2-4u, which states that the games committee – not the coach – should have the responsibility of providing liquids during the competition.”

“In Rule 3-10-7, when flags are not utilized, the head event judge utilizes the mechanics to call “fair” or “foul.” “

Other changes approved by the NFHS committee include:

  • “  The removal of the Note in 4-3-1b(5), which contradicts the rule by limiting the placement of the American flag to one piece of uniform apparel.

  •    Rule 4-6-5g, which states that it is an unfair act when a competitor receives physical aid from any other person during a race or trial, except as provided in Rules 4-6-5 and 9-7

  • Rule 5-1-3, which notes that, in absence of a curb, if cones are used, they should just touch the inside of the line and be placed about 5 feet apart around the curve.

  •   Rule 6-2-17, which clarifies how trials are recorded when a legal implement breaks during competition.

  • Rule 6-5-9e, which notes that if a shot put competitor touches the top or end of the stopboard before leaving the circle, it is a foul.

  •  Rule 10-2-2, which notes that when multiple takeoff boards are used in the long jump and triple jump, the 20-meter distance shall be from the foul line farthest from the pit.”

    “According to the 2015-16 NFHS High School Athletics Participation Survey, there are 578,632 boys participating in outdoor Track and Field at 16,358 schools and 478,726 girls at 16,309 schools. “ Source - www.nfhs.org

Below is a reflection of Deb Petruzzello experience at the National Convention in her own words:

 

“NHSACA Convention - June 25-29   Louisville, KY

 

What an honor to be representing Connecticut at this convention. We (husband Lou, son Tony and sister/asst.coach Sharon) arrived on Saturday in Louisville at the Galt House Hotel which overlooks the Ohio River. The hotel is huge and after trying to register for the Transportation Convention (oops!) I decided to wait until Sunday morning to register for the coaches convention. Time to do some sight seeing...

 

Sunday, June 26

 

Registration was a breeze and it's nice to know that much of the convention is in the tower where our room is located. I saw Gary Makowicki who was on his way to Churchill Downs with other NHSACA Board of Directors. My family went later - didn't win anything but saw a few races, met some very friendly people and enjoyed the day.

 

Monday, June 27

 

First day of the convention for me. I ran into Michelle Cordone, a CT COTY finalist for special sports (cheerleading). Finalists for the boys' and girls' COTY are doing presentations together. I listened to four presentations during the day. It is amazing to hear of the differences between the states regarding events contested, length of season, competition rules and travel time. Many of the smaller states offer 4x200, sprint, distance and hurdle relays and allow 2 or 3 contestants/event at their regionals  regardless of the number of qualifiers. Very few offer the javelin or triple jump.

 

Jason Booher, the keynote speaker, was inspiring. A survivor at the age of 13 of the worst bus crash caused by a drunken driver told of the accident and events in his life after that experience. The impact his coaches had on his life and the decisions he made thereafter reinforced the belief that we coaches have a great impact on our athletes. Now a successful high school basketball coach, he wanted to give to his athletes what his coaches had given him.

 

During lunch (sponsored by the regional Dairy Council), a presentation was given on the benefits of chocolate milk as a recovery drink. Great information and facts on chocolate milk went with a great luncheon. Our CT table for lunch included retired coach Tom Butterfield (XC) and Michele Cordeau (special sports -cheerleading) and saw Scott Aresco, softball coach from Meriden.

 

The Kentucky coaching association sponsored a social for the COTYs and Hall of Famers in the evening. A great way to socialize, meet other coaches and relax..

 

Tuesday, June 28

 

Gave my presentation today as well as heard from other boys and girls COTY finalists. Topics included hurdle training, changing the school/team culture to a wining one, organizational tips and more. Except for the finalists,no other coaches (except for my assistant sister Sharon and a wife of one of the coaches) attended the presentations. Lots of good information was given that could have been shared with other T&F coaches but that was not the set up. Attended the regional meeting - only CT coaches attended to discuss sport issues in our state and conference issues. That was an eye opener. Had the afternoon off and went to the Mohammed Ali Center which was phenomenal. Needed at least 2 hours to see it all!

 

Wednesday, June 29

 

More presentations during the day and the 2nd general session with 2 great guest speaker - a former Olympian cyclist and former Olympian basketball player, Kenny Davis, who related his experiences in Germany in 1972. Moving, very moving.

 

The banquet was the time all COTY finalists from the 19 sports were presented and given their plaques on stage. What a special feeling! A group picture was taken afterward of the Track & Field finalists. Finally the winners for each sport were announced. When my name was called, my sisters and I screeched, my son yelled out, the 2 former team captains jumped out of their seats. Unbelievable...The thrill and excitement of being a finalist alone is mind boggling. Words can not explain. Nothing but thanks to CHSCA and the National organization for this honor. What a week! “

Certified Track & Field Officials

 

January 18, 2015 -A Track & Field Officials training clinic was held in January at the CIAC office to train and certify High School Track & Field Officials that have officiating experience.

 

Continued Training-

 

Several full training sessions for new officials were scheduled during January, February, and March. All had to be postponed and ultimately canceled due to weather related issues.

 

We are continuing to work with the CIAC to get the High School Review Test for Officials online so that officials can take this each year to maintain their certification.

 

We are continuing to work with the CIAC to have all officials at the State Championships be Certified Officials.

 

2015 Rule Changes & Updates from NFHS:

 

 

    • Effective with the 2015 high school track and field season, the prohibition of jewelry will be eliminated.

 

    • 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. Participants must only initiate the trial within the one-minute time limit.

 

    • 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.

 

    • 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.”

 

  • For special events, the 1,500-meter run was approved as an alternate for the 1,600-meter run in the decathlon and pentathlon.

 

 

 

2016 Rules Changes from NFHS for High School Track and Field:

 

 

    • The head starter (or designee), rather than the implement inspector, shall inspect all starting blocks used in the running events.

 

    • Changes were made to include the use of flags in field events.

 

    • 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.

 

    • Rule 3-10-7 was also revised. 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

 

  • equipment standards changes:

 

  • 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.
  • 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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just a note:

 

Based on information from the National Federation of High School Sports:

 

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. “
