  1. 2009 NFHSFootball Rules Changes

  2. IOWA HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION 2009 FOOTBALL INTERPRETATION MEETING

  3. COACHES INFORMATION Football Practice Begins on August 10th August 10th, 11th, 12th, Helmets Only August 15th, Press Day Only, No Practice August 17th, One Practice Per Day August 22nd, Practice is Allowed August 27th, 1st Legal Playing Date

  4. COACHES INFORMATION CONT. Player may not participate in more than 14 games in any one season, excluding the play-offs. Player may not participate in more than 4 quarters per day, nor play in more than 2 games in any one day. Once a game has reached the 35 point differential, substitute who enters for the first time at that point, is not required to count that game toward the 14 game limitation. However, this does count toward the 4 quarter limitation in which a player may not play in more than 4 quarters in one day. One play equals one quarter.

  5. FOOTBALL CASTING RULE Rule 1-5-3c Illegal Equipment: Shall always include, but not limited to: Hard substance in its final form such as leather, rubber, plastic, plaster, or fiberglass when worn on the hand, wrist, forearm or elbow unless covered on all exterior surfaces with no less than ½ inch thick, high density, closed-cell polyurethane or an alternate substance of the same minimum thickness and similar physical properties to protect an injury as directed in writing by a licensed medical physician (M.D/D.O.).

  6. FOOTBALL CASTING RULE CONT. NOTE: While the National Federation of State High School Association’s football rules stipulate casts may be worn “as directed in writing by a licensed medical physician,” the IHSAA is cognizant of the fact that Iowa law provides a more broad definition of physician. Therefore, we include all licensed physicians, as per Iowa code, under our interpretation of this rule. Licensed Physician and Surgeon Osteopathic Physician and Surgeon Osteopath Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP) Physician’s Assistant Doctor of Chiropractic

  7. FOOTBALL CASTING RULE CONT. What must be included in a physician’s statement: First and last name of the athlete for whom the cast has been prescribed. Location of the cast. The date the cast was prescribed. The licensed medical professional’s signature.

  8. Rule 1-5-3c ILLEGAL EQUIPMENT CONT. Knee braces made of hard unyielding material, unless all parts of the brace made of hard material and extending below the pants are covered. Any other hard substance across the front of the leg are to be covered with at least ½ inch of closed-cell, slow-recovery rubber or other material of the same minimum thickness and having similar physical properties.

  9. HEAT & HYDRATION Make sure you take plenty of water breaks during practice. Use the information provided by the IHSAA Heat Index Chart Urine Color Chart Hydration Fact Sheet Order and Heat and Humidity Gauge

  10. IHSAA ADAPTATIONS Any school/district/conference desiring to use a 25 second clock and/or an on-field microphone for the referee does not need to seek permission from the IHSAA in writing. Referee is not required to use a microphone. Guidelines for the use of the 25 second clock and the referee’s microphone can be found in the IHSAA handbook, under “Football”.

  11. COACHING AUTHORIZATONS The IHSAA does not verify attendance for coaching authorization. Anyone in attendance for coaching authorization renewal credits is responsible for keeping track of the dates and place of the rules meeting. Go to the website, www.boee.iowa.gov for current applications.

  12. COACHING AUTHORIZATIONS All coaches (volunteer and contracted) need to have an authorization or endorsement to teach sport specific skills to student-athletes. Beginning with the first legal day of practice, you cannot bring in former athletes without this authorization or endorsement to teach specific skills. (For example, former high school quarterback to throw passes to receivers.)

  13. REQUIRED REPORTING OF STATS The IHSAA adopted the following policy effective with the 2009-10 school year. Football: Completed by Monday at 3:00 PM Following the third game Following the six game Following the ninth game End of season for play-off qualifiers

  14. GENERAL REMINDERS No overtimes will be played below the varsity level. The J5V Spalding (Horween Leather Advance) football [#62-8998] will be used for all playoff games.

  15. 35 POINT RULE The 35 point differential rule is in effect for all games played in Iowa, grades 7-12. If there is a 35 point differential at the end of the first half or anytime after, the game will be continued with a running clock. Beginning with the second half kick-off, the 35 point differential goes into effect. The clock will only be stopped for: Following a score Team timeout Intermission between the 3rd & 4th quarter Extended injury timeout Officials determine it necessary for safety reasons.

  16. 35 POINT RULE CONT. Anytime the score differential gets below 35 points in the second half, regular timing procedures will be used. Reminder, the first half is played under regular timing procedures, regardless of the score.

  17. PLAYER PARTICIPATION Once a game has reached the 35 point differential, a substitute who enters the game for thefirst timeat this point, is not required to count that game toward the 14 game limitation rule. However, thisdoescount toward the 4 quarter per day limitation rule, in which a player may not play in any part of more than 4 quarters in one day. One play equals one quarter.

  18. PLAYER PARTICIPATION A player who participates in only free kick downs and scrimmage kicks during the game is not charged with game participation as it relates to the 14 game player limitation rule. However, this does count toward the 4 quarter per day limitation rule, in which a player may not play in any part of more than 4 quarters in one day. A player may play in two games in a day, constituting only 1 of his 14 games, equaling no more than a total of 4 quarters.

Stay calm, take a deep breath, see the whole situation, understand the intent, communicate with a fellow official who may have seen the same scenario, then make a decision. If you are having problems with a player(s), inform the coach and allow them the opportunity to handle the situation. Coaches take advantage of this opportunity to keep your player on the field.
