skates can potentially be danger- ous. If skates are deemed danger- ous per the rule language, a game misconduct penalty is warranted and strengthens the emphasis on the health and safety of the partici- pants.
3-4-2 Change: ART. 2... ...Recom- mended equipment includes a throat/neck laceration protector.
Rationale: Clarifies the purpose of the recommended equipment for players.
7-6-1 Change: ART. 1...No player shall make contact from any di- rection with an opposing player’s head or neck area. In any manner, including, but not limited to, with the shoulder, stick, elbow, hand, etc.
Rationale: Hand contact, particu- larly a closed hand, is often classi- fied as unnecessary roughness (mi- nor penalty). This change would give officials a major penalty op- tion for a single punch to the head area that they deem not to be con- sidered as fighting (DQ).
7-13-3 Change: ART. 3...No player shall kick, throw, hold or knock an opponent’s stick, glove, tooth and mouth protector or any other piece of equipment for the purpose of keeping it from the possession of an opponent.
Rationale: Gloves and tooth and mouth protectors (mouthguards) are two common pieces of equip- ment found on the ice during play, unfortunately. This change clari- fies that these pieces of equipment are a part of this rule.
9-13 Change: By state association adoption, state association-autho- rized video replay may be used in games for reviewing goals and un- detected goals, and for determin- ing correct time on the clock, and to review infractions that may af- fect the ejection of a student-ath- lete. Procedures for video replay shall be determined by state asso-
ciation policy and procedures.
Rationale: More and more ven- ues have the technology available to accomplish this proposed rule change. As a state adoption, states have a choice to implement this ad- dition.
1-1-1: Additional language was add- ed to define the end wall.
Rationale: Since swimmers may now finish the race by contacting the end wall or touchpad, a more complete definition of what consti- tutes the end wall was necessary.
1-4-5, 1-4-6, 9-2-1, 9-4-1d, 9-4-2, 9-4-4, 9-4-5: Diving rounds and diving sessions were defined.
Rationale: Rounds and sessions were used interchangeably in the rules book and clarity was neces- sary when referencing sessions during and 11-dive competition.
3-3-3 NOTE, 3-3-4c: The rule was updated to comply with current re- quirements of suit manufacturers.
Rationale: New language clarifies that a check mark placed adjacent to the FINA logo is compliant for high school competition.
6-3-2: New language describes the manner in which an official time is obtained.
Rationale: This rule change clari- fies that other data points such as touchpad, buttons, or stopwatches may need to be used by the Referee to determine the swimmer’s time.
6-3-4: Added language describes when the backup system for tim- ing and judging shall be operative.
Rationale: The change more ac- curately describes the protocol for determining an official time when automatic timing equipment mal- functions or is not activated.
