Please do not have any runners participate who do not intend to run in the State meet if they qualify. This is not fair to the other runners.
Athletes must be in proper school uniform. The cross country uniform consists of a school issued jersey and shorts of the same color and design, which are not objectionable to the referee, and shoes, which may be supplied by the contestant. Any other visible apparel (this does not mean a bra) must be of a single color and worn under the uniform jersey or shorts. When the apparel is worn it shall be the same color for all teammates choosing to wear them. Watches may be worn by the competitors. Encourage your runners to appear at the start line with the proper uniform and NO JEWELRY so that they are not asked to change before running. Games committee and race starter will inspect all uniforms.
The NFHS Track and Field Cross Country Rules Book uniform rule will be enforced. It is the individual athlete and full team’s responsibility to compete in the proper uniform. All contestants must wear their assigned numbers when competing and it shall be worn on the front of the jersey. Bare midriff tops are not allowed. The top must hang below or be tucked into the waistband of the bottom when the competitor is standing erect. This will be enforced by the clerk of the course. Doo-rags, handkerchiefs and hats of any kind are not allowed during competition. Plain head bands, stocking caps and gloves will be acceptable (no logos of any kind are allowed on head gear). Remember that LIVESTRONG bracelets and all bracelets are JEWELRY.
NO JEWELRY but watches are allowed. Only religious or medical medals are allowed (Rule 4-3-7) Note: Watches are not considered jewelry. Remember that LIVESTRONG bracelets and all bracelets are JEWELRY.

Rule 4-6. Please review these rules with your athletes, especially actions and/or language that will bring disgrace to the sport.
All protests are to be written and handed to a games committee member. If a member can't be found find the meet director. The written protest must state the rule to be believed infracted and the situation that occurred. The games committee will then meet and make a ruling.
Rule 4-6-7E states that it is an unfair act to use wireless communications. However meet personal can use these for the operation of the meet.
