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 following was sent to me from the State Meet organizers.
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.
Any runner requiring prescription medication must present written authorization from a physician to the meet director prior to the start of the coaches meeting. The release must state: what it is for, must carry while running, and physician signature. Rule: 5-1-9sp Note pg. 23

Coach your athletes to stay in the chute until they have been released. Any runner who leaves the chute prior to being released will be DISQUALIFIED from team and /or individual scoring.
Each runner will have a race number that is pinned on the front of their uniform. We will have video for recording the finish, but it will only be used to place runners in case of a fall in the chute. We will be using 3 different forms to score and place the runners to ensure accuracy.
Scoring: Computer scoring and hand scoring.
Please ask your athletes to stay away from the team area and individual result area. Asking what their time is, place, or team place slows up the posted results.
Rule 4-5. Please review these rules with your athletes, especially actions and/or language that will bring disgrace to the sport.
