With the fall season underway CIAC wanted to share a few officiating and rules updates for the season.
- CIAC wants to take an opportunity to thank officials and all officiating groups across the state for agreeing to not take fees increases this season in appreciation of the budget challenges schools are currently facing. This goodwill gesture was the result of great work from the CIAC Officials Association Advisory Board and the officials groups throughout the state, and we hope this is a welcome relief for our members.
- Please check out the memo regarding marking the coaching box and substitution entry spot rules for boys and girls basketball and the increased effort to obtain 100-percent compliance with this requirement this season. Complete information can be found here, please check out the complete memo for all the information.
- As communicated previously CIAC will be providing NFHS rule books to schools on an every-other-year basis. Schools should consult previous editions of rule books for questions, and NFHS.org highlights any rule changes that have been approved in a given sport so schools can remain up-to-date. Questions regarding rules can be directed to your officials assignor, who will direct you to the rules interpreter.
