41 RULES AND MECHANICS CHANGES Dave Dunning – BCBOA Rules Interpreter


43 NFHS Changes - 2-8-5; 3-3-8 Changed the guidelines and procedures for identifying and removing a player who exhibits signs, symptoms and/or behaviors consistent with a concussion. CONCUSSION PROCEDURE REVISED (2-8-5; 3-3-8): Any player who exhibits signs, symptoms or behaviors consistent with a concussion must be immediately removed from the game and shall not return to play until cleared by an appropriate health-care professional. The previous rule directed officials to remove an athlete from play if “unconscious or apparently unconscious.” The previous rule also allowed for return to play based on written authorization by a medical doctor. The new rule requires that any player who exhibits signs, symptoms or behaviors consistent with a concussion, such as loss of consciousness, headache, dizziness, confusion or balance problems, shall be immediately removed from play and shall not return until cleared by an appropriate health-care professional. Officials, coaches and administrators should be looking for signs of concussion in all athletes and should immediately remove any suspected concussed athlete from play and make every effort to ensure a concussed athlete does not continue to participate.

44 From: [] Sent: Wednesday, August 25, 2010 1:12 PM To: Shanell Young Cc: Subject: Concussion Rules Change (2-8-5; 3-3-8) Shanell, At the Evaluation Camp you discussed the new rule change regarding Concussions. You also mentioned that the FHSAA will be sending clarifications regarding the "signs, symptoms or behaviors consistent with a concussion," and what constitutes a "Health-Care professional." Our Association believes that there is opportunity for liability regarding this issue and would like to have, in writing, what the FHSAA recommended protocol is in how to handle concussions and/or potential concussions of student athletes. Thank you very much. --Lee Lazerson President, BCBOA 954-464-6134 CONCUSSION PROCEDURE REVISED (2-8-5; 3-3-8):

45 Lee, This will be detailed in the rules presentation, which I am currently working on. It will Include a step by step protocol. One thing that the NFHS has said is that the officials will not have to get anything in writing, and your role would be only to remove the athlete from the floor. You will not have to worry about who the health care professional is. The liability would rest on the coach and school to have the athlete released by an appropriate health care professional. Shanell Young Director of Athletics 352-372-9551 ext.310 August 25, 2010 1:18 pm CONCUSSION PROCEDURE REVISED (2-8-5; 3-3-8):

46 NFHS Changes - 3-5-3a The list of permissible headband and wristband colors was changed to include any single solid school color.

47 Specific rules were added to address the unsporting acts of a player leaving the playing court for an unauthorized reason to demonstrate resentment, disgust or intimidation and team members leaving the bench area and/or playing court for an unauthorized reason. NFHS Changes - 10-3-6i; 10-5-5

48 NFHS EDITORIAL CHANGES 3-3-1a NOTE; 4-34-2 Clarified that when a substitute is not properly reported, the players in the game at the conclusion of the quarter/when the time-out was granted shall begin play for the new quarter/after the time- out. During an intermission, all team members are bench personnel for the purpose of penalizing unsporting behavior.

49 NFHS EDITORIAL CHANGES 3-4-2d Clarified that a school or conference logo/mascot may be located at the apex/opening of the neckline, in the corresponding area on the back of the jersey and/or in the either side insert. 3-4-2d Clarified that a school or conference logo/mascot may be located at the apex/opening of the neckline, in the corresponding area on the back of the jersey and/or in the either side insert.

50 NFHS EDITORIAL CHANGES 3-5-2 Clarified the requirements for guards, casts and braces and that a protective face mask shall be worn molded to the face.

51 NFHS EDITORIAL CHANGES 4-4-7d Clarified that the ball is at the disposal of a player when it is available after a goal and the official begins the throw-in count.

52 NFHS EDITORIAL CHANGES 7-6-6 Clarified that when the ball is awarded to the wrong team, the mistake must be rectified before the throw-in ends.
