30 Take Part. Get Set For Life.™ National Federation of State High School Associations 2009 Football Points of Emphasis

31 NFHS Guidelines on Handling Contests During Lightning Disturbances POINT OF EMPHASIS  Lightning kills or seriously injures hundreds of individuals each year.  Need to remind coaches, players, spectators, administrators and officials of the potential seriousness of lightning during football season.  New NFHS Guidelines on Handling Contests During Lightning Disturbances listed on page 97 of the 2009 NFHS Football Rules Book.

32 Illegal Personal Contact POINT OF EMPHASIS  Illegal personal contact involves a number of acts that must not be tolerated in football.  The behavior of players and nonplayers need to be monitored during a game to ensure that sportsmanship prevails at all times.  Coaches need to correctly teach the fundamentals/techniques and the rules of the game to all players.  Officials need to enforce the NFHS football playing rules as written and penalize when illegal personal contact takes place.

34 Blocking and Illegal Blocks POINT OF EMPHASIS  Blocking is obstructing an opponent by contacting him with any part of the blocker’s body (Rule 2-3-1).  Illegal blocking can occur in a variety of ways during football competitions.  Coaches need to teach legal and fundamentally sound blocking techniques.  Officials must be diligent in reading keys, recognizing illegal blocking and making the call.

38 Helmet and Face Mask POINT OF EMPHASIS  NFHS Football Rules Committee wants more consistency from officials in calling face-mask related fouls.  Two types of fouls: 1. “Incidental” is grasping of the face mask, helmet opening or chin strap. (5-Yard Penalty) 2. “Grasping and twisting, turning or pulling” of the face mask, helmet opening or chin strap. (15-Yard Penalty)

39 Uniforms POINT OF EMPHASIS  In recent years, players and sometimes teams seem to be attempting to skirt the NFHS rules governing football uniforms, adornments and player equipment.  Regardless of the reason why it occurs, the outcome is a growing problem because these efforts violate the NFHS football rules and player safety or both.  It is the coaches’ responsibility to control and prevent these rules violations.  Officials need to enforce the NFHS football uniform rules.

40

41 Sportsmanship POINT OF EMPHASIS  The NFHS Football Rules Committee has once again made Sportsmanship a point of emphasis for the 2009 football season.  Players, coaches, spectators and officials each play a vital role in the promotion of good sportsmanship.  Acts that focus attention on, or those intended to engender ill will toward individuals have no place in educational activities.
