Policy 8 pg. 90
Sanctioning enhances the likelihood that events will adhere to sound and detailed criteria which meets the specific requirements of a state association. Sanctioning serves to promote sound regulation of the conditions under which students and teams compete. Sanctioning is a means of encouraging well-managed rules and regulations. Sanctioning adds an element of due diligence that encourages compliance with state associations rules and regulations. Sanctioning protects the welfare of the student-athletes.
Sanctioning helps reduce the abuses of excessive competition. Sanctioning promotes uniformity in obtaining approval for events. Sanctioning helps protect students from exploitation. Interstate and International sanctioning at the NFHS level promotes financial transparency and equivalency of treatment of participating high schools.
a) Any interstate event involving two (2) or more schools which is co-sponsored by or titled in the name of an organization outside the high school community (e.g., a university, a theme park, and an athletic shoe/apparel company). b) Non-bordering events if five (5) or more states are involved. c) Non-bordering events if more than eight (8) schools are involved. d) Any event involving two (2) or more schools that involves a team from a foreign country. The host school should complete the international sanction application. (The exceptions to this rule are Canada and Mexico, which are considered bordering states).
The host school is the school who assumes the accountability of the being responsible for the event. The host schools principal assumes oversight responsibility for the event by being either present onsite during the event, either in person or by designee.
Can a host school be responsible for an event outside of that state (e.g. Illinois high school signing off as the host school for a Florida event) ? No, it is NFHS board policy, that the host school shall be in the same state of the event in the event something occurs at the event, then the principal or his/her designee could quickly assess and report the situation.
Applications must be completed 60 days prior to the event start date. The initial list of schools must be submitted upon application The final list of schools must be submitted 20 days prior to the contest Host states must then approve the event Participating states must approve the event NFHS approves the event
