Special thanks again to Brian Staiger for finding this site, the Southern Tier Association, and to our State Executive Board – especially to Jim McCaul, Jan O’Shea, and Bob Headwell for creating the idea back in 2012 to hold this Rules Summit.

3 Why this NOW? 1. The incorporation of 2015 rules into our indoor season requires that we know about these rule changes earlier than the January NFHS Interpretation Conference Call. 2. Clarifying an early misinterpretation is easier than waiting until March. 3. We will have a much more efficient meeting in Ithaca with much happier attendees.

4 Agenda 1. New Rule Changes for Intention of the changes & comments on the rule revisions 3. NFHS Points of Emphasis for Clarifications via Q & A of existing rules 5. Local situations, local needs 6. How can we help one another? 7. Clinics and training ideas to “take home” with you to your membership 8. A good lunch & safe trip home

5 The NFHS Rules Book by Rule # 1. Order of Events 2. Scoring 3. Meet Officials and Their Duties 4. Competitors and Competition 5. Running Events 6. Throwing Events 7. Jumping Events 8. Special Events 9. Cross-Country 10. Records

6 … and the special rule for the Referee only to use that you won’t find in the book … Rule 11 – “Sh_t Happens!” Rule 11 – “Sh_t Happens!”

7 NFHS Track & Field Rules Changes and Revisions for 2015

8 Rule As an option to be determined by the games committee or meet director, the order of events for indoor competition shall consist of the 55- meter OR 60-meter High Hurdles, Dash, and Low Hurdles. With no action, the standard events’ distance shall be 55-meters As an option to be determined by the games committee or meet director, the order of events for indoor competition shall consist of the 55- meter OR 60-meter High Hurdles, Dash, and Low Hurdles. With no action, the standard events’ distance shall be 55-meters

9 RATIONALE for the change: Many indoor events are run in college/university facilities that are marked specifically for the 60-meter distance. Allowing this as an option eliminates the need for any special marking of the facility for the hurdles and dash.

10 The following rule change will NOT apply in New York State!!!!!!! The NYSPHSAA Safety Committee by a unanimous vote rejected a motion by the Indoor and Outdoor Track and Cross- Country Committees to remove NYSPHSAA’s ban on jewelry from those sports and be treated as bowling and golf, where there is no prohibition The NYSPHSAA Safety Committee by a unanimous vote rejected a motion by the Indoor and Outdoor Track and Cross- Country Committees to remove NYSPHSAA’s ban on jewelry from those sports and be treated as bowling and golf, where there is no prohibition The Central Committee will also vote on this at the end of the month The Central Committee will also vote on this at the end of the month
