Why do we participate in high school sports and activities? by Dr. Kerwin Urhahn, MSHSAA Executive Director

students, parents and administrators watch the five minute presentation we have on the MSHSAA website at www.mshsaa. org, and complete the free online course. Schools may want to incorporate this online course into their preseason parent and student meetings.

Stahl Named an Assistant Director

The Missouri State High School Activities Association Board of Directors has added a member to the executive staff, as voted upon at its January meeting. Current Athletic Director at Plattsburg High School, Greg Stahl will join the staff as an Assistant Executive Director. Stahl began his teaching career as a middle school science instructor for the Morgan County R-II School District and Versailles Middle School. In addition to his teaching duties, he served as the head coach for the high school wrestling and baseball teams, as well as the middle school football teams. Stahl also assisted with the high school football team for the Tigers. In 1999, Stahl moved to Marceline High School, where he taught sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth grade science. In addition to his teaching duties, he also coached high school and middle school wrestling programs. Assisting with the middle school football teams, sponsoring the FCA chapter, sponsoring the middle school science club as well as being a co-sponsor for the Students Against Drunk Driving chapter were among Stahl’s responsibilities at MHS. In 2000, Stahl was named the Missouri Wrestling Association Head Coach of the Year, after leading the Tigers to a fourth place team finish. In 2002, Stahl joined the administration of Versailles High School as Assistant Principal. Along with his administrative accomplishments, Stahl implemented and guided a new “Map Gap” instructional period for core subject areas, as well as aided in the development of a GED Option Diploma for decreasing dropout rates. For his efforts at VHS, he received the “Tiger Paw Award” at an annual staff appreciation banquet. In 2004, Stahl was named Assistant Principal and Athletic Director at Plattsburg High School. Since arriving at PHS, Stahl has developed a district coaching evaluation process, implemented a Breakfast of Champions program for high school studentathletes mentoring to elementary students, as well as served as site manager for several MSHSAA activities. With a bachelors of science degree in Education from Missouri Valley College, Stahl earned a Masters of Education/Secondary Administration from William Woods University. He is currently completing Specialist in Education/Superintendant degree from Northwest Missouri State University.

MSHSAA Journal August 2010    1

Welcome back to a new school year. As I enter my 20th year in education those words still bring excitement, concern and focus to me. The new beginning of a school year brings promise of a fresh start, and a chance to have a positive impact on the lives of young students in the State of Missouri. Teachers, Coaches, Administrators and Legislators are faced with some difficult times ahead this year with the previous budget cuts and the expectation of further cuts required. Even with those issues, seeing children walking through the doors of the schools and onto the practice fields, roads, courts, and gym floors for softball, tennis, cross country, football, volleyball, marching band, and soccer practices has to get the blood pumping with the anticipation of competing. Many times I have discussed the importance of extracurricular activities and when the dollars get tight, everything is on the cutting block. However, the educational process would suffer greatly if extracurricular activities were eliminated. Many schools have cut back on competitions and levels of programs, and some schools are implementing pay for play at the high school level. But education will take place, even with the money issues, and activities and athletics need to be a part of that learning environment. The beginning of the school year brings, schedule changes, handbook assemblies, and re-enforcing to the students what is expected at the High School or Junior High. The staff of the Missouri State High School Activities Association has been working hard this summer to provide tools for schools to use throughout the year but especially at the beginning of the school year as administrators and coaches meet with students and parents. The State Legislature discussed the need to pass a law last session that would require MSHSAA to provide information to parents, students, coaches and administrators concerning the dangers of concussions and symptoms of head injuries. Associate Executive Director Harvey Richards and the Sports Medicine Advisory Committee have established criteria for return to play guidelines. The committee adopted the information presented in the National Federation of State High School Associations free online course available at www.nfhslearn.com. It is strongly recommended that all coaches,

Along with the concussion course on the MSHSAA website, there will be an online rules presentation that will cover the eligibility pamphlet in more detail presented by Mrs. Stacy Schroeder and Mr. Harvey Richards. I encourage every school to have their counselors watch the online presentation and share with their students and parents that where it is located on the MSHSAA website. Finally, the member schools of the Missouri State High School Activities Association should expect to receive an instructional DVD and workbook with activities and suggestions to improve Sportsmanship at the member school. The DVD will have three parts with one for parents, one for students, and one for coaches. We encourage you to use the materials to promote positive sportsmanship at your school. I hope everyone has a great start to the school year and a safe fall season.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS The following are questions and answers pertaining to the MSHSAA Constitution and By-Laws and/or MSHSAA Board of Directors policy. These are provided as an aid in interpreting the rules and regulations which MSHSAA member schools have adopted. If you have a specific area and/or question which you would like explained, contact Kerwin Urhahn, MSHSAA executive director. Your attention is called to the fact questions and answers regarding interpretations of the MSHSAA Constitution and By-Laws appear following the Constitution Article or By-Law they relate to in the MSHSAA Official Handbook. Question: We have a family in our district whose children are being taught in their home. They would like their daughter to participate in our high school volleyball program. (a) Is she eligible and (b) could she become eligible after being ineligible for one year? Answer: (a) No. (b) No. The requirements of eligibility are specific in their stipulation that “. . . Any student who represents his/her school in interscholastic activities shall be a bona fide student and enrolled as an undergraduate student of the school . . .” (By-Law 210) In addition, all students in order to have the privilege to participate shall be enrolled in classes which allow them to earn 3.0 units of credit or 80 percent of the maximum allowable credit whichever is greater and must have earned 3.0 units of credit or 80 percent of the maximum allowable credit whichever is greater the previous semester (ByLaw 213). Credit is recognized by the credits issued on the student’s transcript at the member school. A home schooled student is eligible just as any other student providing these same essential eligibility requirements for all students are met. Question: In an effort to comply with provisions of Public Law 94-142 for inclusion we have “mainstreamed” several students who have learning disabilities. In some classes, they are not able to meet the same academic standards as their classmates. How is their eligibility determined? Answer: In order for these students to be eligible to participate in interscholastic athletics, music, speech, cheerleading, academic competition, and pom pons, they must receive passing grades in courses offering a minimum of 3.0 units of credit or 80% of the maximum allowable credit whichever is greater for the semester. Each school is responsible for establishing academic requirements and grading policies to effectively accommodate students who have been identified with having a disability in accordance with provisions of P.L. 94-142. The school

district has two options with respect to grading policies. First, the IEP committee may determine that the student will be required to meet the same academic requirements and grading policies as any other student in the class. When such a determination has been made, no modifications to grading will be made, and The first question uses volleyball as an example, when asking about the the student will possible eligibility of an home-school student.

Review Rosters Carefully for Age & Academic Requirements Principals of member schools should have all eligibility rosters carefully checked to be sure that the name of no overaged student or a student not meeting the academic requirements appears on a list. Any student who becomes 19 years of age on or before July 1 is ineligible. Any junior high school student who becomes sixteen years of age on or before July 1 and any middle school students who becomes 15-years-old on or before July 1 is ineligible for interscholastic athletic competition during the 2010-11 school year. Students in the junior high/middle school who exceed the age limits may be moved up to participate with the appropriate age group. By-Law 232 has been amended to permit an overaged eighth grader attending a school which goes only to grade eight to participate at the high school he/she will attend the next year. This practice allows the students maximum opportunities for eligibility. School administrators are reminded that By-Law 232 provides that students who exceed the age limit for participation in a particular grade are permitted to participate up to the next grade level where chronological age would place them. Schools should develop and implement a procedure whereby these youngsters are identified and informed of the By-Law and the option to play with the next grade. The provision, when applied correctly, will permit all youngsters two years of potential participation at the seventh and eighth grade team level and four years of New MSHSAA Member Schools

potential eligibility at the senior high level. Schools not identifying and informing these students are not providing them with an equitable opportunity to participate in accord with MSHSAA By-Laws. School districts not sponsoring junior high sports should make this extra effort so the student has every opportunity through the By-Laws to participate. Records should be checked and students advised of their academic status and eligibility. It should not be assumed that a student and his/her parents know the eligibility status based on academics. It is the responsibility of the principal to certify that the information furnished on the master eligibility rosters is absolutely accurate and that the students whose names appear on those lists are eligible in accordance with all the provisions of the MSHSAA By-Laws. All member school administrators are reminded that a master eligibility roster is to be filed with MSHSAA according to the schedule in By-Law 234. Also, a copy can be viewed on-line by member schools which desire to review the eligibility roster before the date of each game. In accord with MSHSAA By-Law 234, no athlete shall be considered eligible to represent his/her school until the student’s name is filed on the master eligibility roster supplied by MSHSAA and exchanged with opposing schools requesting it. Additions to the roster can be made a day before the date of any contest.

It is highly recommended that each coach/ director check to see that his/her name has been entered on the school’s ‘Coaches and Directors Roster’ by the athletic/activities director. At this time all MSHSAA registered sports officials are still required to attend a face-to-face rules meeting.

ACT and SAT Dates Should be Checked to Avoid Conflicts with MSHSAA Events High school counselors, principals, coaches and directors are urged to remind all high school students of the dates on which the ACT and SAT tests will be administered, as well as the dates of MSHSAA district and state events. MSHSAA event dates are contained in MSHSAA sport and activity manuals, the MSHSAA wall calendar and inside the back cover of the MSHSAA Handbook. High school students participating in interscholastic activities often find conflicts between interscholastic events and the ACT and SAT test dates. Students can avoid this problem by arranging for

a test date that does not conflict with an interscholastic event in which they will be participating. Following are the test dates for 2010 2011: 2010-11 Act Test Dates egistration Deadline R Test Dates August 16 September 11 September 17 October 23 November 5 December 11 January 7 February 12 March 4 April 9 May 6 June 11

Handling Contests During Hazardous Weather The length of the delay shall be determined by the weather conditions, and the game may be resumed at any time the principals of both schools or their designated representatives and the head official agree it is safe to do so. However, if after a delay of a maximum of 30 minutes the hazardous weather has not subsided, the decision to postpone shall be made by the principals of both schools or their designated representatives after consultation with the head official. If there are extenuating circumstances such as extreme travel distances, rescheduling problems, etc., which make it desirable to try to complete the game and the principals of both schools or their designated representatives choose to ask for an additional 30 minutes of waiting time, the head official may grant that request. If the principals of both schools or their designated representatives and the head official cannot mutually agree that the weather conditions are safe, the game shall be postponed. The game may either be considered a completed game at that point or rescheduled at a later time ac-

cording to game rules. (All regular season senior high school football contests that are postponed shall be rescheduled on the earliest possible date but no later than four calendar days following the original date, and in compliance with the football playoff scheduling regulations.) The purpose of this procedure is to first ensure the safety of the players and spectators, but also to relieve the pressure from the officials before declaring a game suspended. The host principal should, when severe weather is pending, keep a constant check with nearby radio stations which would have information concerning the path of the storm. This constant check, available to the administration, is not available to the game officials. School district emergency plans should include procedures for evacuating players and spectators to protected areas when severe weather occurs.

MSHSAA Journal August 2010    7

The host school principal or designated representative and the head official have mutual authority to delay the start of a game any time weather conditions are considered hazardous to life or limb. Likewise, the head official, once a game has started, has the authority, by rule, to suspend a game any time weather conditions are considered to be hazardous to life or limb. If severe weather develops while a game is in progress where the administration feels safety is questionable and the game officials have not acted, the host principal or his/her designated representative will intervene by informing the head official who shall cause the contest to be suspended. The first step in the suspension is to remove the participants to a location providing shelter and safety until the weather conditions improve to a point where it is safe to resume play. The spectators will be informed of the procedures to be followed and will be instructed to move to protected areas. Fans should not be permitted to remain in the bleachers.

Local School Responsible for Conduct at Contests Under By-Law 810 & Board Policy The MSHSAA Board of Directors policy statement makes it clear that any unsportsmanl ke conduct or misconduct of an athlete, coach, student, or fan at the site of an event -- whether it occurs before, during, or after the contest -- is of concern to the Board of Directors and shall be handled in accord with procedures established in the policy. It also reaffirms the expectation that in cases where an athlete is guilty of deliberately str king an opposing player, using profane or vulgar language, or using abusive language toward officials, etc., that the coach will immediately remove the player from that game and not permit the player to participate in the next succeeding game as a minimum penalty. In addition, it provides that if there are extenuating circumstances making the athlete’s conduct more serious, the penalty imposed by the school shall be more severe. The policy continues to stipulate that a substitute shall not enter the playing floor or field should a fight break out among players in the game. It also specifies “and should any substitute leave the bench area to go onto the floor or field in such situations, he or she shall be suspended from the remainder of that game and from the next contest in which the team plays.” Coaches need to make this policy clear to all members of their squads. The Board of Directors policy statement relating to Unsportsmanl ke Conduct is included in the policy section located on pages 110-111 of the MSHSAA Official Handbook and in By-Law 810.

By-Law 235 provides that a student who is a member of a school sports squad that is in season may practice or compete in organized nonschool competition in a different sport during that school season and may do so on the same day the student practices or plays for the school team provided this dual participation on the same date is approved by the student’s school administrator in advance. Nontraditional sports as defined in By-Law 235 are restricted from participation during the respective school season. It is very important to understand the provision continues the restriction contained in By-Law 235 which stipulates a student shall neither practice nor compete as a member of a nonschool team or as an individual participant in organized nonschool competition in that same sport or sport similar in nature such as three-on-three basketball during the school basketball season. By-Law 235 permits, during the summer months only, that an individual employed by a school district in any sport may coach a nonschool team which has players from the school team they attend or will attend next year. This provision specifically addresses nonschool competition on a legitimate team designed to compete if the team is not a part of the school program. By-Law 235 (Nonschool Competition) provides an exception for swimming and diving while in season. Students should discuss participation and the exception with the school coach and athletic administrator. It is suggested that each student athlete and his or her parents receive a copy of the MSHSAA brochure “How to Maintain and Protect Your Elig bility” which contains information regarding the Nonschool Competition Requirement and other eligibility standards students must meet in order to maintain the privilege to participate in the interscholastic program.

The MSHSAA Board of Directors resolved to purchase the Lifetime Catastrophic Medical and Disability Insurance Plan for the 2010-11 school year. This catastrophic insurance plan underwritten by Mutual of Omaha, Omaha, Nebraska will cover all students while practicing for and/or participating in activities under the jurisdiction of the MSHSAA (e.g., athletics, music, speech, sideline cheerleading, dance teams, academic competition, etc.) This will be the 21st year for this particular program in our state. Attention is called to the fact the plan does not include liability insurance for member schools nor does it include a waiver of lawsuit provision. Therefore, school administrators are urged to check your present school district liability insurance policy to make sure participant liability is not excluded in that policy. The plan includes a deduct ble of $50,000. It will provide excess medical benefits for a student who suffers an accidental injury while practicing for or participating in an interscholastic activity conducted under MSHSAA jurisdiction which results in medical costs exceeding $50,000 within two years from the date of injury. The premium for this coverage is paid by the member school supplementary service fees. The premium rate for 2010-2011 is $4.99 per senior high student athlete and $4.65 per junior high student athlete whose name appeared on the school’s master elig bility rosters for all sports during the 2009-2010 school year. This is an unduplicated count in that a student who participated in two or more sports is counted only once. This fee is the same for junior and senior high schools. DESCRIPTION OF COVERAGE: The Lifetime Catastrophic Injury Insurance Program will pay benefits, after the $50,000 deductible, for covered losses due to a catastrophic injury in excess of other valid and collectible insurance. Benefit highlights for covered losses are as follows: Benefit Highlights for Covered Losses are as follows: 1) Lifetime Medical, Dental and Rehabilitation Expense Benefit: 100% of reasonable, customary, and necessary covered expenses, with an overall $3,000,000 lifetime limit. 2) $100,000 Lifetime Special Expense Benefit First 10 Years: Home remodeling or adaptation and special vehicle purchase or adaptation; then $50,000 each decade thereafter. 3) $50,000 Lifetime Adjustment Expense Benefit: Family counseling, training and travel in connection with care and rehabilitation of catastrophically injured student; loss of earnings of parents due to catastrophically injured student. 4) Total Disability/Loss of Earnings Benefit: A catastrophically injured student who is totally disabled at age 18 may receive $2,000 per month for Life. 5) Partial Disability Benefit: A partially disabled student may receive $750 per month for Life, after recovering from Total Disability. 6) $100,000 Lifetime Benefit for unre lated subsequent accidents and/or illnesses (after a $5,000 per calendar year deductible).

Nonschool Competition By-Law 235


ADMINISTRATIVE INFORMATION

Physicals Required for Athletics, Cheer and Dance According to MSHSAA By-Laws 276, 283 and 309, schools shall require every student participating in sideline cheer, dance teams and athletics to present a physician’s certificate stating that he or she is physically able to participate. These By-Laws do not allow for any exceptions to this requirement. A MSHSAA Participation Certificate, or something similar, is to be completed prior to the first practice session and should be readily available during all practices and events. It is suggested that schools make copies of the Participation Certificates for all participants in these activities and have the forms on file in the school’s central office in case the original forms are lost during a practice session or an out-of-

town event. This will serve as a back-up for school personnel and prevent having the participants and physicians complete the participation certificates again. It should be noted that any school physical issued on or after February 1, 2010 is valid for the 2010-11 school year. By-Laws 276 and 283 include tryouts as a recognized event for sideline cheer and dance teams. School administrator and event sponsors should be certain all students involved in tryouts provide a physician’s certificate stating the individual is physically able to participate in sideline cheer or dance activities as required prior to participating in any activities in preparation for tryouts.

The association focuses on the image and effectiveness of coaches to improve, preserve, and promote the integrity of the Missouri interscholastic athletic programs. The goal of the Missouri Coaches Association is to improve interscholastic coaching as a profession in the state of Missouri, as it relates to all aspects of coaching. “Positive-Active Participants Become Positive-Productive Citizens.” Section 1: Regular Membership. Membership is open to anyone employed as, or approved to serve as, a coach at an MSHSAA member school in an MSHSAA-sanctioned sport. Section 2: Benefits.

Guidance Counselors Play Key Role in Communicating Eligibility Rules It is important that all counselors be fully knowledgeable of the essential eligibility requirements students must meet to represent the school and participate in interscholastic activities. Counselors are frequently asked by students to advise them on matters dealing with the preparation of, or changes in their class schedules. In doing so, counselors should be sure that they do not advise a course of action which will result in students forfeiting their eligibility to compete in interscholastic athletics or activities through violation of MSHSAA rules of eligibility, e.g. scheduling a course for which the student has already received credit, permitting a student to be scheduled with fewer than five full credit subjects, or the equivalent of work, or permitting a student to drop a course(s) and thereby placing him/her below eligibility requirements. Counselors should discuss eligibility requirements with all students. Member school principals should emphasize to all guidance counselors the importance of having copies of MSHSAA eligibility requirements on file at all times in the guidance offices. A “Checklist for School Counselors” can be found in the August packet provided to all MSHSAA member schools to assist with transfer students. Also, additional forms for helping counselors can be found on the MSHSAA web site. It is strongly recommended that counselors view, “How to Protect Student Eligibility” on the MSHSAA Website (www. mshsaa.org). This on-line review will provide an electronic cover view of important by-laws students, parents, counselors, coaches and administrators need to know.


ADMINISTRATIVE INFORMATION

Schools to Provide Security for Game Officials Schools are to provide, if at all possible, private dressing facilities for the game officials employed to officiate their home contests. They should be separate from either of the participating teams with toilet and shower facilities readily available. No unauthorized personnel are to be admitted to the officials locker room before, during or after the contest. This includes friends of the officiating crew. Only the assigned officials, school personnel assigned by the athletic administrator to assist the officials, and MSHSAA personnel including official observers who may be in attendance, are to be admitted to the official’s dressing room. The sign indicating “No Admittance”, which is forwarded to all schools by the MSHSAA, is to be placed on the door to the official’s locker room and monitored so that only authorized personnel are admitted. The host school or site manager is directly respons ble for the safety and security of all game officials before, during, and after all interscholastic contests (including the parking lot). Officials are encouraged to notify the school and the MSHSAA by the Special Report process when their safety and security is not provided for. Part of the duties of the game officials are to arrive on time at the site (at least an hour before game time), cooperate with school officials and not admit any of their associates or friends to their locker room. A cooperative effort between school officials and game officials will pave the way for a smooth contest and help avoid undesirable incidents.

Schools to Verify Officials’ Registration Status All athletic administrators and coaches should make certain that all contracted officials are currently registered (2010-11) with the MSHSAA. Contracting game officials is an extremely important responsibility. School administrators and coaches must be certain that each official is duly registered for the current year in that particular sport. Officials are required to renew or register with the MSHSAA annually. The registration year is from July 1 to June 30. The final responsibility of making certain that game officials are registered rests with the host school. This responsibility cannot be delegated to an officials association or to an assignor. A contract shall be with the individual official, not between the school and the officials association. The MSHSAA staff realizes that game officials may be contracted a year in advance and may certainly be registered for that year; however, the problem arises when the official then fails to renew for the current year and honors the contract, but is not registered. Administrators and coaches are urged to check the Officials Roster on the MSHSAA Web Site. Athletic Administrators should contact Pam Martin in the MSHSAA office if there is a question regarding the registration status of any contest official. Be certain that officials you use are legally registered. If an official has overlooked the fact that he or she has not renewed or registered for this year, he or she should contact the MSHSAA immediately.

Both Officials and Schools Need To Honor Contracts

A player who is ejected from a contest for unsportsmanlike conduct shall at a minimum be prohibited from playing in the next interscholastic contest at that same level. A coach who is ejected during a contest for unsportsmanl ke conduct shall at a minimum be prohibited from coaching and attending the next interscholastic contest for that team. Listed below are rules references for the By-Law 810 ejection procedures: • Softball: Any player or coach ejected from an interscholastic contest under NFHS Softball Rule 3-6. • Soccer: Any player or coach ejected from an interscholastic contest under NFHS Soccer Rule 12-8-2, 12-8-3, or 12-8-4. • Football: Any player or coach disqualified (ejected) from an interscholastic contest under NFHS Football Rule 9-4, 9-5 or 9-8. • Volleyball: Any player or coach disqualified from an interscholastic volleyball match under NFHS Volleyball Rule 12. • Girls Golf: Any player or coach disqualified from an interscholastic golf match under the 2009-10 MSHSAA Golf Manual Terms and Conditions. • Cross Country: Any participant or coach disqualified from an interscholastic cross country meet under NFHS Track and Field and Cross Country Rule 9-6-3 and 4-5-1, 2. • Girls Tennis: Any player disqualified from an interscholastic tennis match under the 2009-10 MSHSAA Tennis Manual Terms and Conditions.

Board Policy for Delinquent On-Line Submission of Coaches, Directors and Sponsors The MSHSAA Board of Directors adopted, at its June 15, 2007, meeting, the following policy regarding the delinquent submission on the MSHSAA Website (www.mshsaa.org) of faculty, non-faculty, and non-certified athletic and activities coaches, directors, and sponsors (head and assistant) by member schools. Besides sports, this policy is applicable to music, academic competition, sideline cheerleading, dance team, and speech, debate, and drama. The policy provides that the school administrator shall enter the required information on all staff members associated with the sport/activity no later than the day prior to the first permissible contest for that sport/activity. Failure of a school to submit information on coaches/directors/sponsors by the established deadline shall result in the school being sent a letter of reprimand. A school shall receive a warning for a second occurrence during the same school year. If a third incidence should occur during the same school year, the school shall be placed on probation for 365 days.

From time to time, the MSHSAA receives complaints from either a game official or a member school that someone has violated a contract. Just one or two of these complaints are too many. Good organization and careful bookkeeping by both parties should eliminate any confusion for either group. The MHSAA would like to offer the following guidelines for schools and officials to follow concerning contracting procedures. • School officials are to make certain that all officials contracted are duly and currently registered with the MSHSAA. • Officials shall be agreed upon by both schools at least 30 days before each contest. • All contracts are to be properly signed by a school administrator and the official. • Some type of guarantee shall be indicated on each contract and shall be paid by the offending party to the offended party. • A contract may be broken only by the mutual consent of both parties, or for reasons beyond the control of either party. • The final responsibility for making certain officials are registered with the MSHSAA rests with the host school. • Officials are not to send a replacement to work a contest unless that official is agreed upon by both schools prior to the contest. • Contracts shall be with the individual official and not between the school and an official’s organization. • Both parties should review contract dates frequently and communicate with each other immediately if any change needs to take place.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Outgoing President’s Message to MSHSAA

Incoming Board President’s Message

By Dr. Blane Keel

By Travis Brown

It has been my pleasure and honor to serve as the President of the MSHSAA Board of Directors. It truly was a rewarding experience. I have enjoyed working in the capacity as president with Dr. Urhahn and the other staff at MSHSAA. I can assure our member school districts that the staff at MSHSAA work very hard to provide the best possible sports programs, activities and venues to our student athletes. I think we have had a great year and look forward to the coming year. Our mission this year was to be keep costs down for our member schools. The Board stayed mindful in every decision to try not to add expenses to our members. The members of the board and staff at MSHSAA know how difficult and trying the financial situation is in the state. The Board understands the potential cost to member schools by adding programs so we have tried not to add any new programs. The MSHSAA website has added new applications to reduce the cost to our member school such as the coaches training that will be available and other items of interest. Please check out our web site to see what’s new! I want to urge our member schools to keep a close eye on upcoming legislative issues and be ready to defend our organization. In these trying times our organization needs support from each member more than that message to every legislator that will listen. Our constitution, by-laws, policies and regulations come from you (our member schools). It is vital that as members we stay involved and provide input and seek to change that which is not working. I would urge superintendents, principals and coaches to please stay involved because this is your organization. MSHSAA exists to provide services to our member schools and without your input we would miss opportunities to serve you better. We have added some new faces to our staff that I believe will work very hard to serve our member schools. I look forward to working with our new president, Travis Brown, a hard working educatior and great colleague. I also want to thank the MSHSAA Board of Directors. They are one of the finest groups of people I have ever been around. Each one loves kids and is a professional educator. I have grown as a person from my association with this board.

Let me take this opportunity to express how honored I am to serve as President of the Missouri State High School Activities Association Board of Directors and to welcome you to a new school year. As your president, I am looking forward to working with you, along with MSHSAA Executive Director - Dr. Kerwin Urhahn, his staff and fellow board members, to help build on our successes, forge new ground, and continue to enhance the athletic, educational and social experience for thousands of students who participate in high school activities. These are exciting times for MSHSAA. I believe in it’s mission and in our committed 580 member schools, volunteers and supporters. I also firmly believe that high school sports and activities will promote the character develpment of participants, enhance the integrity of higher education and promote civility in society. A new school year presents opportunities for various beginnings-new classes, new team members, new rules and sometimes new coaches. However, newness alone cannot produce transformation. We ourselves must be willing to be caught up in the rebirth that is possible with each new year. I encourage each member school to keep informed and take part in our annual questionnaire ballot process, sportsmanship and student leadership events, traditions reunion programs and music festivals. This year, as in the past, we must concentrate on the processes that spur continuous student growth, sportsmanship, the highest quality of professional instruction and the greatest motivation we can provide. To quote John Wooden: “Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.” MSHSAA is your organization! Let’s make 2010-20-11 our best year yet!

As I complete my term as President I am pleased with what has been accomplished for our member schools. I am pleased with our staff at MSHSAA under the direction of Dr. Urhahn. I personally want to thank all the member schools for their cooperation and input into our organization. I have enjoyed great support from my fellow board members. I look forward to coming year and the possibilities it brings for our student athletes. In closing, I leave this quote from Henry Ford “Wheather you think you can or think you can’t you are right.”

The following dates have been set for meetings of the MSHSAA Board of Directors and Appeals Committee for the 2010-2011 school year: School administrators and coaches are reminded of how important it is to have your transfer forms and supporting documentation supplied to the MSHSAA office a minimum of two weeks before the Appeals Committee meeting Board of Directors Appeals Committee September 15-16, 2010 - MSHSAA office, Columbia (Wed.-Thu. of Week 11) August 18, 2010 - MSHSAA office, Columbia (Wed. of Week 7) December 1-2, 2010 - MSHSAA office, Columbia (Wed.-Thu. of Week 22) September 7-8, 2010 - MSHSAA office, Columbia (Tue.-Wed, of Week 10) January 26-27, 2011 - MSHSAA office, Columbia (Wed.-Thu. of Week 30) November 16-17, 2010 - MSHSAA office, Columbia (Tue.-Wed. of Week 20) March 10, 2011 - MSHSAA office, Columbia (Thu. of Week 36) March 15-16, 2011 - MSHSAA office, Columbia (Tue.-Wed. of Week 37) April 1-2, 2011 - Tan-Tar-A, Osage Beach (Fri.-Sat. of Week 39) June 15, 2011 - MSHSAA office, Columbia (Wed. of Week 50) All meetings begin at 8:30 a.m. All meetings shall begin at 8:30 a.m. with the exception of April 1-2, 2011 meeting which shall begin at 1:00 p.m. Note: *- Week 40 in 2010 Anyone attending a meeting in the MSHSAA office who requires auxiliary aids or services should request such services by contacting the executive director of the MSHSAA, telephone (573) 875-4880, no later than 48 hours before the meeting.

Show-Me Bowl Set for St. Louis The Show-Me Bowl concept began in St. Louis in 1979. The bringing of all championship games to one site has continued with only slight modifications since then. In 1982, a fifth class was added, and the site was moved to Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. In 1982 and 1983, five games were played in one day. In 1984, a two-day format was used. That format was followed until the Board of Directors voted to move the games to the University of Missouri-Columbia and Missouri State University in Springfield in 1988. In 1996, the site of the 11-Man Championship was moved to the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, and in 2002, a sixth class was added with three games played on Friday and three on Saturday at the Dome. In 1988 an 8-man championship was added and played at Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville. In 1997, the 8-Man Championship was moved to Tarkio Academy due to the NCAA Division II Playoffs. In 2008, the 8-Man Championship was moved to the Edward Jones Dome. This will be the 15th year for the Show-Me Bowl to be held in the Edward Jones Dome. The 2010 Show-Me Bowl schedule is as follows: (Edward Jones Dome – St. Louis) Friday, November 26 9:30 a.m. -- 8-Man 1:00 p.m. -- Class 1 4:15 p.m. -- Class 3 7:30 p.m. -- Class 5 Saturday, November 27 12 p.m. -- Class 2 3:15 p.m. -- Class 4 6:30 p.m. -- Class 6

MSHSAA Policy on Stacking Lineups in Tennis The Tennis Advisory Committee and the MSHSAA Board of Directors is fundamentally opposed to “stacking.” Stacking is the practice of placing tennis players in the line-up in a manner not consistent with rank ability, but rather for the purpose of gaining an advantage due to the match-ups created. This is a practice that is unacceptable due to the detrimental way that certain players (usually the lower level players) are placed and forced to compete. Coaches must be able to justify line-ups to competing coaches. The following is the procedure that all tennis coaches should use to insure that stacking does not occur. 1. Line-ups and Comprehensive Results shall be exchanged prior to the start of the match. Varsity line-ups and scorebooks/score sheets shall show all team/tournament results throughout the year up to that day. If a coach does not have his/her scorebook, the opposing coach shall submit a special report to the MSHSAA office. 2. Players must play in the order of ability. The line-up shall always be based on the order of ability. “Matching up” is prohibited. In singles, players must compete in order of rank ability with the best player on the team based on challenges and match results. In case of injury or sickness, all players must move up. This rule shall also apply to doubles play with the strongest doubles team at No. 1, etc. a. A player shall not be moved down in the lineup because of: i. an injury that has forced a player out of the line-up; or ii. disciplinary measures. b. Rank order shall be set by the Saturday of Week #12, Sept. 25, 2010, (girls season) and Week #43, April 30, 2010, (boys season). Rank order is

based on a player’s ability, match results, and challenges. All members of the eligibility roster shall be included in the rank order. i. Rank order shall be submitted online to the district manager prior to the start of the district tournament. The district manager shall submit the rank orders to the coaches whose team qualify for state play. ii. Rank Order shall be submitted with the State Tennis Individual Entry Form (14B/32B) to the MSHSAA office. iii. Rank order shall be submitted to all coaches at the regional meet. iv. Rank order shall be submitted to all coaches at the sectional meet. v. Rank order shall be submitted to all coaches prior to state competition. c. Doubles line-ups may be played in any order provided: i. Doubles rank orders will be determined by the sum total of the singles rank order value. Example: if the #1 and #2 singles play together their sum total is 3 points. If the #3 and #4 singles play together their sum total is 7 points. Therefore, #1 and #2 must play at the #1 doubles spot; #3 and #4 must play at the #2 doubles spot; etc. ii. When the sum total of the teams are the same (example: #3 and #4 play together and #2 and #5 play together–both teams point value is 7), the team with the highest ranked player must play at the higher doubles position. Therefore, #2 and #5 would play at the #1 doubles spot;

#3 and #4 would play at the #2 doubles spot; etc. Exception: When sum totals of teams are of equal value and a team line-up can be justified based on doubles abilities it is legal to use that line-up in post-season only if the line-up has been used three times during the regular season in a 6 and 3 format or in doubles tournament(s) where 3 or more doubles teams were entered. 3. Line-up changes in back-to-back dual matches. In back-to-back dual meet matches (two consecutive dual meet matches played regardless of time between matches), the team line-up (as played) may be changed. A player may move up or down only one position in this situation. The line-up must still stay in order of ability. Prior to the start of the match and during the line-up exchange, it is the responsibility of the opposing coach to appeal any player being moved two or more positions in the line-up. 4. Appeals concerning unfair line-ups. If a coach feels that the opponent’s line-up as presented is unfair, he should notify the opposing coach of the protest. Any coach who wishes to submit a match protest (after the completion of the match) must first inform the opposing coach in writing (by fax or e-mail), with a copy sent at the same time to the MSHSAA office. This is necessary even when the opposing coach was informed of the protest at the time of the match. This written protest must be made within 48 hours of the start of the match. 5. Cases in which stacking is determined, the offending school shall be disqualified from the match or the tournament.

Tennis Playoffs To Have New Look for the 2010-11 Seasons Starting with the 2010-11 school year the tennis playoffs will have a different look. Each class will expand to 16 districts with the number of schools in a district cut in half. This should alleviate some excessive travel for some schools. All tennis teams that are registered for post season will qualify to participate in the team district tournament this year. The teams assigned to a district will be seeded and placed on a bracket. Using a 6 singles and 3 doubles dual format the bracket will be played out with the winner of the district tournament advancing to the team sectionals. Scoring for

the team tennis district shall be 2 out of 3 sets with “No-Ad” scoring. Team districts will occur between October 4-8, 2010 for the girls and May 9-13, 2011 for the boys. The individual singles and doubles district tournament will be played on Saturday, October 9, 2010, for the girls and May 6, 2011 for the boys. Each school may enter up to two singles players and two doubles teams in the individual district tournament. The top two singles and doubles teams in the tournament will advance to the individual sectional round. Medals will be awarded as in the past. Points will no

longer be assigned to each round as the individual district has no bearing on the team competition. The first place finisher will play a match against the second place finisher in another district. The winners of these matches will advance to the state tournament in Springfield. Each sectional will have two singles and two doubles teams advance to the state tournament. The winners will be placed on opposite sides of the state bracket.

2010 Golf Advisory Committee Summary Held May 26, 2010 1. Recommended that the Golf Manual include the following information for District and Sectional Golf Managers: “The golf course shall be properly marked prior to the tournament. Hazards, Out of Bounds, abnormal ground conditions, and obstructions shall be properly marked and included on the Notice to Competitors and local rules shall be clearly stated.” 2. Recommended that “Markers” be used at the Sectional Tournaments. 3. Recommended the following method of pairing golfers be used for Sectionals: A) The four teams that qualified by placing first or second in their respective districts shall be paired together at the Sectional tournament. B) The individual qualifiers shall be paired

according to their district score in relation to par from lowest to highest with no two players from the same team paired together. 4. Recommended the following items be included as survey items when MSHSAA surveys golf coaches. A) Should the 10 stroke rule be used at the District Tournament? B) Should “Markers” be used at Districts? Sectionals? State? C) Should Teams be paired together both days of the State Tournament? 5. Recommended medals be awarded to the top 15 individuals plus ties at the District contest.

Soccer Survey Required

The MSHSAA Board of Directors, at its June 2006 Board Meeting, approved the recommendation by the Soccer Advisory Committee that all schools participating in soccer submit a summary of all yellow and red cards received. The information obtained through the summaries will help in the evaluation of the current yellow and red card rules. All survey summaries should be completed and submitted in conjunction with the official’s rating forms. The survey can be found on the MSHSAA website.

Soccer Overtime Procedure

The overtime procedure for varsity regular season contests will include two ten-minute sudden victory periods with the National Federation Penalty Kick Procedure to follow if necessary. Overtime for the State Tournament beginning with District play will be two 15- minute sudden victory periods with the National Federation Penalty Kick procedure to follow if necessary.

Ball Girls Needed at State Tourney

The 2010 MSHSAA Volleyball Championships will be played at the Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, November 5-6. MSHSAA is looking for interested volleyball teams to serve as ball retrievers for the state tournament, and a total of six teams are needed. Sessions will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. At least six players would be needed to cover one court during a session. Up to 10 players will receive a championship t-shirt and free admission for the entire tournament. If your team is interested, please complete the form available on the MSHSAA web site, under Volleyball.

All coaches are required to submit their regular season rank orders online throughout the school year. Prior to the first regular season contest each coach must submit their rank order for singles and doubles. Submission of the rank orders can be done on the school’s tennis schedule or eligibility roster pages. Each time a school changes the rank order for their team, coaches must use the online system to update their rank order. The update to the website must be done prior to using that rank order against an opposing school. Opposing coaches may view other teams rank order by viewing the opposing school’s tennis schedule or eligibility roster. Rank orders will become locked on Saturday of week #12 for girls and on Saturday of week #43 for boys.

In an effort to help facilitate the lines of communication between officials, coaches, and administrators as well as to provide a paper trail for the issuing of yellow and red cards a soccer game summary form has been developed. The hosting school will be required to provide a Yellow and Red Card Summary Form to the head official prior to the start of each game. A special report should be filed by officials to the MSHSAA Office on schools who do not provide the Yellow and Red Card Summary Form and schools should file a special report on officials who refuse to use or complete the Yellow and Red Card Summary Form during the game. The summary forms will provide administrators, coaches, and officials a written documentation of accumulated cards throughout the season, and designate whether the cards issued are “offthe-ball unsportsmanlike” or “other” violations. This should assist administrators and coaches in tracking the accumulation of yellow and red cards for players as well as the team 10-card rule for coaches and their respective penalties related to card accumulation.

• The yellow and red card summary form will be in triplicate. • Hosting school will provide form before each game. • The head official will track all cards assessed during the game. • The official will provide both the visiting and home team coach a copy. • The official will keep a copy for his or her own records. • Violations of NFHS soccer rule 12-8-1: c, d, f2, 12-8-2: a, b, 12-8-3: a, b, d, e, or f will count towards the team 10-card count. • Cards received marked “other” will not count towards the team 10-card count. • “Other” cards will go toward an individual players card count. • The cost of the Soccer Yellow and Red Card Summary Form is $4 per 50 forms plus shipping and handling. • Ordering information is located on the MSHSAA website.

Soccer Advisory Committee Summary Held December 9, 2009

*** 1. Recommend maintaining standard enrollment breaks, but effective 2010-11 increase the number of districts to 16 when there are at least 64 schools per class. This increase in districts will add a sectional and quarterfinal round. Amended: Recommend maintaining standard enrollment breaks, but effective 2010-11 increase the number of districts to 16 per class.

Recommend to reiterate to district managers and officials, during the district and state tournament, that the official time should be kept on the scoreboard (when available). * 3. Recommend that as a part of the pregame conference, the coaches and officials determine if overtime procedures will be used. If both coaches do not mutually agree during the pre-game conference to end regulation with a tie then the current procedure of ending a game using two 10-minute overtime periods and penalty kicks will be used to determine a winner. ** 4. Recommend that a soccer jamboree consist of the following terms: Three 25-minute periods when 4 teams participate. Two 35-minute periods when 3 teams participate. A jamboree cannot occur before the 9th day of conditioning or on or after the first legal contest day. 5. Recommend that the soccer field width for sectionals and quarterfinals be a minimum of 60 yards, but strongly recommend a width of 70 yards. 6. Recommend the following rotation schedule for sectionals and quarterfinals be implemented as outlined below: Rotation for Sectional Host: The host for sectionals will be the top team on bracket in odd years.

The host for sectionals will be the bottom team on bracket in even years. Rotation for Quarterfinal Host: The host for quarterfinals will be the top team on bracket in odd years. The host for quarterfinals will be the bottom team on bracket in even years. If both teams hosted sectionals, the top team on bracket will host quarterfinals. If neither team hosted sectionals, the top team on bracket will host quarterfinals. If one team hosted sectionals and one team didn’t, the one that did not host sectionals will host quarterfinals. * Denied ** Tabled for further study *** Approved as amended All others approved

MSHSAA Board Policy On Volleyball Player Limitations 3-out-of-5 Format Optional: M issouri schools may utilize the 3-out-of-5 format or the 2-out-of-3 format for varsity level dual matches only (not in triangulars, quads or tournaments). In the 3-out-of-5 format, the first school to win three sets wins the match and the fifth set, if needed, is played to 15 points rather than 25 points (win by two). Schools and/or conferences may utilize the 3-out-of-5 format for one or more of their varsity dual matches, as agreed upon by both schools and officials in advance. The format for the match must be clearly specified on the game contract and the officials’ contracts prior to the contest. Lower level contests (junior high, freshmen, junior varsity) will continue to be played in the 2-out-of-3 format only. The 2-out-of-3 format will continue to be used in the district and state series until a majority of volleyball playing schools support moving the district and state series to the 3-out-

of-5 format. 2-out-of-3 Format: When a team is participating in dual competition on one calendar date against the same school during regular season, and the varsity squad is playing the 2-out-of-3 format, the following player limitations will be in effect on that date: 1. A player may participate in a maximum of three sets, or one full match at a lower level plus one set in a second match at a higher level. 3-out-of-5 Format: When a team is participating in dual competition on one calendar date against the same school during regular season, and the varsity squad (only) is playing the 3-out-of-5 format, the following player limitations will be in effect on that date:

1. A player that will be playing exclusively on the varsity squad may participate in up to 5 sets on that date. 2. A player that is splitting time between the junior varsity match and the varsity match may participate in 4 or 5 sets on that date only in a combination that would prevent the student from participating in two complete matches (see table below for specific legal combinations). 3. A player that is participating on three different levels may participate in a maximum of three sets. 4. A player that is playing exclusively on the junior varsity squad, or splitting between the junior varsity match and a freshman match may participate in any legal combination that is outlined for the 2-out-of-3 format.

Guidelines for Bands Performing at Football Contests The participation of bands at a school football contest is an exciting aspect of the event. The band contributes to the event by increasing the level of excitement and adding a “touch of class” to the festivities. In order to maintain a proper perspective and to insure equity in competition for the participating teams, a few guidelines must be followed.

• • • •

During the contest, bands are to play only during pregame, halftime, postgame, the time between quarters, timeouts (except injury time-outs) and between plays (stopping prior to the referee’s whistle for “ready for play”). Bands that are seated near the end zone should not play if the line of scrimmage is inside the 10-yard line on the end close to the band. After a touchdown, field goal, extra point, or safety, the band may play the school fight song, etc., however, the director must be sure to stop playing when the official blows the “ready for play” whistle to start the next play. When bands want to warm-up prior to halftime, directors should arrange this so that it is done in an area that is not a distraction to the contest. Note: No whistles may be used while the game is in progress. Because the band acts as a spirit group, members should always act in a positive manner and must not do anything to distract or negatively affect the opposing team. It is the director’s responsibility to prevent his/her band from playing at inappropriate times, playing inappropriate music, or taunting the opposing team.

The band must display courtesy and respect toward the players, cheerleaders, and fans. To do anything else is not only a distraction from the contest but also reflects negatively on the band, the director, and the school. Support your school and team in a positive manner!

Sideline Cheer Questions & Answers

required practice for any other athletic sport (i.e. volleyball, soccer, basketball, etc.)? Answer 4: No. Sideline cheer conditioning practices will not count toward the athletic conditioning requirement. (ByLaw 270) Question 5: Is a student who is participating on an athletic squad required to meet the conditioning standard again if the student will be participating in sideline cheer the next sports season? nswer 5: No. Sports conditioning practices will count toward the sideline cheer conditioning requirement, as long as no more than seven days has elapsed between the last game or sports practice and the first sideline cheer practice. (By-Law 270)

By-Law 143 specifies that nonfaculty music directors must meet the same qualifications as nonfaculty coaches. To qualify as a head music director, an individual must hold a valid teacher’s certificate. To qualify as an assistant nonfaculty music director (any nonfaculty director that provides music instruction) an individual must hold a valid substitute teacher’s certificate. In addition, each nonfaculty music director must be approved by the Board of Directors. The school must annually submit to MSHSAA an application form for each music director that needs approval. A music director is defined as someone who provides music instruction only. An auxiliary director/ flag sponsor, etc. is not considered a music director, and approval is not required for these positions. A drum line instructor would need approval and must meet the above criteria.

The following are some of the most commonly asked questions regarding competition for cheerleaders. Question 1: Our school would like to sponsor a competitive cheer team to participate in various competitive events throughout the school year. There are members of our sideline cheer team who would like to participate on the competitive cheer team as well. Is this allowed? Answers 1: MSHSAA has no jurisdiction over competitive cheer. Therefore it would be considered a “club activity” (much l ke ice hockey, or bowling) with oversight of this activity administered through the local school administration. However, please be advised that participants are covered under the MSHSAA catastrophic insurance for sideline cheer only. Any injuries sustained while involved with competitive cheer are not covered under the MSHSAA insurance policy. (By-Law 270) Question 2: One of our varsity football cheerleaders would like to compete during the high school football season with an independent cheering team. May she do so? Answer 2: MSHSAA has no jurisdiction over competitive cheer. Whether a school sideline cheerleader may participate in competitive cheer with an independent cheer team during the season she is cheering for the school is a local school administration decision. (By-Law 270) Question 3: Our school has recently added competitive cheer as a club activity. Is it allowable for the competitive cheer team to wear the school cheer uniform when participating in competitive cheer events? Answer 3: MSHSAA has no jurisdiction over competitive cheer. If a school sponsors a club competitive cheer team, the use of the school cheer uniforms and equipment is a local school administrative decision. (By-Law 270) Question 4: Does sideline cheer conditioning practice count toward the 14 days of

OFFICIALS

MSHSAA Official’s Rating Procedure 1. Officials working senior high school regular season varsity games must be rated by the schools. Officials are not rated for postseason contests. Rate each official every time he or she officiates for you. 2. The MSHSAA Board of Directors requires the high school athletic director to verify that his or her school’s sports officials rating forms have been completed accurately by the respective head coaches. The ratings shall be entered on the MSHSAA web site. 3. If a 5 rating has been given to an official, the head coach shall provide an explanation on line as to why that rating was necessary. 4. Coaches should wait 48 hours after a contest prior to rating an official. However, coaches are encouraged to submit their official’s ratings on line through out the season and not wait until the end of the season. Coaches are asked to submit ratings on line every two weeks or at a minimum after each month of the season. This should make it easier for the coach to provide accurate ratings rather than trying to remember individual performances at the end of the season. Plus it will aid the MSHSAA in making postseason officials assignments as the executives will have current information on an official’s ability rather than using ratings from the previous year.

5. Schools shall submit the required official’s ratings on the MSHSAA web site by the established deadline. These rating forms shall include regular season contests only.

Ratings Deadlines: Fall – November 15, 2010 Winter – March 15, 2011 Spring – May 15, 2011

6. Schools that fail to submit the required official’s ratings by the established deadline shall be issued a $25 late penalty fee and sent a reminder letter to the principal, giving the school additional days to submit the required official’s ratings. 7. Schools that fail to submit the required official’s ratings within these additional days shall be placed on probation in the sport concerned by the MSHSAA Board of Directors and assessed a penalty fee of $100. 8. A certified letter shall be sent to the superintendent indicating the consequence if the ratings are not submitted for a second consecutive year and that probation is automatically extended for one year. 9. If a school does not submit the required ratings in the same sport for a second consecutive year by the established deadline, the MSH-

Responsibilities for Game Officials tive that officials verbally communicate complete information to the coaches and the official scorer (if applicable) regarding the specifics of the unsportsmanlike conduct. It is important that administrators and coaches be in a position to take corrective action in these situations. Thus, these reports are required in an effort to help put these individuals in a better situation to take the necessary action and prevent future problems. Officials who fail to file reports are doing a disservice to the schools and to their fellow officials who might have to work under similar conditions in future games. Further, they are jeopardizing their future registration status with the MSHSAA. Officials are reminded to file special reports for all levels of play (varsity, junior varsity, sophomore,

OFFICIAL freshman and junior high). The MSHSAA and its Board of Directors, if necessary, will deal with the misconduct problem of every unsportsmanlike act or ejection. Regardless of the severity of the situation, it must be reported to the MSHSAA and the offending school. A report is always necessary, even if the official assumes or has been told that the school will “handle the situation” by itself. This requirement applies to all sports and to all levels of competition. Officials are also reminded that if they are working a game which is protested, they as officials are to file a detailed report with the MSHSAA within 24 hours.

MSHSAA Journal August 2010    27

It is the responsibility of game officials to see that contests are played in accordance with the rules. Officials must promptly and consistently penalize infractions of the rules. This is true regardless of the score, whom it may hurt, or how it may affect an official’s future relationship with a coach. Officials must have courage to call fouls as they occur without showing emotion. The same is true with the other responsibilities an official assumes when he puts on the striped shirt and walks out on the field or court.  The responsibilities of rules makers involve defining legal and/or illegal actions in a sport and then prescribing penalties for illegal acts.  The responsibilities of game officials involve interpreting the spirit and intent of the published rules and applying them to game situations.  The prescr bed penalties automatically occur when calls are made by the officials.  Therefore, the judgments of the officials should focus on the actions of the participants and not on whether they consider the prescribed fouls and penalties to be appropriate. The MSHSAA has received several reports from schools indicating that officials have failed to file special reports for incidents of unsportsmanl ke conduct or player ejections or have filed them so late that they are not received until after the next contest. You are reminded to file a special report with the MSHSAA and the school concerned for all acts of unsportsmanlike conduct on the part of players, coaches, and fans. The act should be penalized promptly and consistently and the report is to be filed within 48 hours following the game. It is also impera-

SAA shall send a reminder letter to the principal indicating that the school has been assessed a $25 late penalty fee and that the school has additional days to submit the required ratings. A letter shall also be sent to the district school board president notifying the board of the situation. 10. If the MSHSAA does not receive the required official’s ratings within these additional days the school will have probation extended and be assessed a penalty fee of $200 by the MSHSAA Board of Directors and the school administrator and person responsible for not submitting the required official’s ratings shall appear before the MSHSAA Board of Directors to show cause why the school should not be considered to be suspended from the district and state tournament series in the sport concerned for the ensuing school year.

NASPAA Assists Championships With PA Announcers By Brad Rumble, NASPAA As everyone knows, things don’t always go as planned, and that was true for the Missouri State High School Activities Association when it came time for its 2010 boys’ state basketball championships. Approximately two weeks before the championships, Mark Mills, a championship announcer for the Missouri State High School Association, contacted the NASPAA to say that some things had come up and that the MSHSAA needed a couple of announcers. The NASPAA gladly accepted the responsibility and went to work. Announcing a state championship is something that many announcers never have the opportunity to experience. Being able to participate in the process that would provide announcers with the opportunity to announce a state championship meant a lot to the NASPAA. Missouri and Kansas members were invited to submit their resumes to Mr. Mills, who coordinated the selections with Jason West, MSHSAA Communications Director. The two individuals who were selected were David Ceule, P.A. Announcer for Blue Springs South High School in Blue Springs, Missouri and Ken Corum, P.A. Announcer for Oak Park High School in Kansas City, Missouri. “I had no doubt that the NASPAA would be able to accommodate our request,” commented Mark Mills, NASPAA Board Member. “The NASPAA has a wealth of talented members. I would not be at all surprised if more state associations use the NASPAA to help find qualified announcers for their championships. I know that we will not hesitate to turn to the NASPAA whenever we need announcers.” Below is what Mr. Ceule and Mr. Corum had to say about their opportunity.

NASPAA member Ken Corum assisted with the MSHSAA Volleyball Championships at Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City and the MSHSAA Show-Me Showdown at Mizzou Arena in Columbia.

Missouri. Even though I have previous state tournament announcing experience, it’s always exciting to be involved in high school athletics at that level. The experience of announcing was a thrill, but also a little nerve-wracking because there were a couple of factors in play – combining my own style and tendencies with that of what MSHSAA wanted and, of course, making triple sure that I didn’t butcher anyone’s name. Any mistakes are greatly amplified at the state tournament! The lasting memory of the week, though, is the new network of colleagues I now have. I got great advice from Mark Mills and Keith Sampson – both longtime, legendary Missouri state tournament public address announcers. I collaborated with Leslie Callison, who is the 2004 Missouri State NASPAA Announcer of the Year and a wealth of information. Lastly, I met Bo Bunton, who is a young up-and-comer. His enthusiasm is infectious. All of these individuals announced during the week, and I got to experience different styles, ask questions and get constructive critique. So, it turned out to be a tremendous week from a number of different standpoints. I hope to have the opportunity to serve the student-athletes of Missouri next year and beyond.

David Ceule, CPAA After surviving a long school day and the first day of track and field practice on March 1, I sat down at my desk to check my email and prepare for the next day before heading home. I was surprised to see an email from Brad Rumble stating that the MSHSAA was seeking some NASPAA members to assist with announcing duties at the state basketball tournaments in Columbia, Missouri. While I have announced many district softball and basketball tournaments, sectional volleyball matches, and semi-final football games, I had never been given the opportunity to announce at the state championship level. When I arrived home that evening, I immediately powered up my laptop and sent my resume to Mark Mills.

A couple of weeks passed before I received a phone call from Jason West, communications director of the MSHSAA. He invited me to Columbia to announce some of the Class 1, 2, and 3 boys and girls basketball games in Columbia. After working out the details at home, I was headed to Columbia to announce at the Mizzou Arena, one of the finest basketball facilities in the country and home of the Missouri Tigers! The atmosphere at the state tournament was great, and it was a privilege to work with the MSHSAA at such a class event. Everyone at the scorers’ table and throughout the arena was very welcoming and helpful. While I was nervous before the first semi-final game I announced, it did not take long at all for me to become comfortable behind the microphone at such a large venue. This was in part thanks to Keith Sampson, a long time announcer for the MSHSAA at the state level. I had the opportunity to observe Keith announcing one game before I was up, and I was also able to speak with him between games and get his perspective on announcing at the state level. The best advice he gave me was simply “just stay out of the way of the game” – certainly not a new concept to me, but it was a good reiteration of what a professional announcer does, especially at the high school level – even at the state tournament. I realized I didn’t have to feel like I was “the show,” which made me feel right at home, just like I was announcing a game back in the gym at Blue Springs South. In fact, the pressure of announcing at state was less than back home in some regards. For example, I am accustomed to trying to keep individual and team fouls on my own or taking a quick peek at the scoreboard (hoping it’s right), but the official scorers at the Mizzou table are so efficient, they signal the number of individual and team fouls before the announcer even has a chance to think about it – a luxury any announcer would appreciate! Overall, announcing at the state tournament was an incredible event that I hope I have the opportunity to experience again. Thanks again to Keith Sampson, Mark Mills with the NASPAA for his advice and leadership, and Jason West with the MSHSAA for inviting me to be a part of the tournament. Ken Corum, CPAA The NASPAA was instrumental in providing me with an opportunity to announce at the Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA) state basketball tournament at Mizzou Arena in Columbia,
