STEVENS POINT, Wis. – The Board of Control voted to approve several fall sport coaches’ recommendations and discussed how to effectively create awareness of the video summary created by the competitive equity committee at its January meeting today.
A new penalty system for an unnecessary delay in starting or resuming play in high school volleyball was approved by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Volleyball Rules Committee at its January meeting in Indianapolis.
This significant rules change, along with three others recommended by the committee for the 2015-16 season, were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.
The NFHS Network School Broadcast Program (SBP) makes it easy for students to produce live video broadcasts by providing the software, tools and training they need for free. With our proprietary technology, schools can produce and distribute high quality events throughout the year including regular season sports, graduation, band, cheer events, as well as other school activities.
If schools are closed and practice is cancelled today due to weather/school board policy, the growth allowance language may be applied which gives a one pound allowance. However, if schools are closed and practice IS HELD, the growth allowance language which gives a one pound allowance DOES NOT APPLY.
Keep in mind that proper notice by the school requesting the one pound additional allowance must be made to the meet manager and each school. Personal contact must be made and voice mail or emails are not acceptable.

The proposal promotes programs in the team sports of baseball, boys and girls basketball, softball, boys and girls soccer, and girls volleyball to a higher division for tournament play based on point values assessed for success in the tournament over a three-year period.
