Thanks to a couple of readers for this heads up.
The board meeting minutes are here.
Q. Update on the NF Rules Committee Meeting (Traci Neely)
Traci passed out minutes from the NFHS Rules Committee meeting she attended.
Relay protocol for state: Frank sending it in writing for posting on Swim page (arbiter)
Rule 6: Redefined in the rules that the state association will be able to support people like Frank
making decisions for the meet and Gloria’s preparation of the files for meets.
It usually takes 2-5 years to make a rule change at the national level so there will be discussion on relay protocol for a few more meetings at the nation level.
Swimmers with disabilities was another issue of discussion at the national meeting
The Swimming division will have preseason board meeting and will have 2 diving members at that time.
Discussion by board: If relay take off pads are used there should also be two people. Will take two out of three (pads, human, human)
**Protocol should be supplied to the UIL for posting on the swim page. (Frank writing up and sending to the group. Will then be posted on the site AND emailed to the officials)
It looks like things are moving in the right direction. Wording of any new rule will be interesting.
The UIL Legislative Council was to have met Tuesday. Anyone have any news on that meeting?
p.s. Lots of talk about money, including this motion (which passed):
Funds left from 10-11 season from TISCA ~3500.00 be put in the UIL Swim general fund.
