Jun 18, 2017 - NFHS Spirit Rules 2017-2018

Be sure to pick up a copy of the NFHS Spirit Rules for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year.

Rule books can be ordered and the rule changes are posted on NFHS.org 

 

Spirit Rules Changes - 2017-18

By NFHS on June 02, 2017spirit Share 

 

Rule 1: Deletes definitions for downward inversion, front drop, knee/seat/thigh drop, split drop, sponge and swan dive.

Rule 1: Adds definitions for braced flip, braced inversion, braced roll, prep level and swing roll down (teddy bear roll down).

Rule 1: Revises definition for switch liberty.

Rationale: The definitions were added to clarify language used in the updated Spirit Rules Book: braced flip, braced inversion, braced roll, prep level and swing roll down (teddy bear roll down). The definition for switch liberty was revised to match common practice.

 

2-1-10, 2-1-12: Revises language to match basketball rules book on spirit squad location during basketball games.

Rationale: Revised language was written to match the basketball rules book to create consistency across activities.

 

3-2-7, 4-2-7: Adds the words "extended stunts that stop" to allow for show-and-go and up-and-over stunts.

Rationale: Language was revised to allow for show-and-go and up-and-over stunts without a spotter. The stunts allowed without a spotter do not end in an extended position.

 

3-3-2, 4-3-2: Removes the word static and clarifies article 2.

Rationale: The word static was removed to clarify how a top person can pass through an extended position.

 

3-3-3, 4-3-3: Reorganizes and clarifies braced inversions in a pyramid.

Rationale: Conditions for braced inversions in a pyramid that do not flip or roll are enumerated for clarification.

 

3-3-4, 4-3-4: Reorganizes and clarifies braced rolls in a pyramid.

Rationale: Conditions for braced rolls in a pyramid were reorganized and clarified.

 

3-3-5: Reorganizes and clarifies braced flips in a pyramid.

Rationale: Conditions for braced flips in a pyramid were reorganized and enumerated for clarification.

 

3-3-6, 4-3-6: Reorganizes and clarifies all other inversions, including suspended rolls.

Rationale: Conditions for inversions that are released were clarified. A quarter turn was changed to a half turn; this increase does not elevate safety risks for participants. The number of bases and/or spotters was adjusted. Rules for suspended rolls were moved to this section.

 

3-3-8, 4-3-8: Prohibits a swing roll-down stunt.

Rationale: Swing roll down stunts (teddy bear roll down) were defined and prohibited.

 

3-4-3, 4-4-11: Removes the word static and clarifies the connection.

Rationale: The word static was removed for consistency throughout the rules book. Language was adjusted to clarify the connection for extended braced stunts. The connection cannot be made by holding the leg/foot in the hand.

 

3-5-5: Removes the requirement for spotter of a bracer in a double-based prep.

Rationale: Adjusted the requirement for bases/spotters of bracers in a double-based prep.

 

3-5-9, 4-5-2c: Eliminates swan dives.

Rationale: Swan dive rule was deleted, as releases to prone positions are covered in 3-5-2, 3-5-5, and 4-5-3.

 

3-6-2, 4-6-2: Adds an exception to allow the top to release to grab another base to adjust position.

Rationale: Language was added to create an exception to allow the top to release one hand to grab another base to adjust position.

 

3-8-2, 4-8-2: Allows poms to be held during airborne tumbling skills.

Rationale: Language was added to create an exception to allow the top to release one hand to grab another base to adjust position.

 

4-4-2: Removes the word static and clarifies article 2.

Rationale: The word static was removed and language was added to clarify how a top person can pass through an extended position.

 

4-7-7, 4-7-8: Prohibits skills to a cradle.

Rationale: Prohibits skills performed to cradle for dance/drill/pom participants. Dance/drill/pom participants may twist dismount to the performance surface.

 

4-10-14: Requires bases to be in contact with the top person when transitioning from a prop.

Rationale: Minimizes the risk to participants when transitioning from props as bases to people as bases. This ensures that at no time will the top person be free of contact from a base while transitioning to a stunt from a prop.
