The NFHS has released the fourth issue of the “Track and Field Pre-Meet Notes,” a web-based, preseason publication.  The NFHS Track and Field Rules Committee has identified a strong need for training and educational materials for track and field officials and the many volunteers who work our interscholastic meets.  This publication is designed to cover the rules for both coaches and officials.

The NFHS, working in collaboration with USA Track & Field Officials Training Subcommittee, has prepared this publication for the training and recruitment of new officials.  In the fourth edition, the material focuses on the new rules, points of emphasis and other topics relating to track and field and cross country.  The publication supports the efforts of the NFHS and USATF in providing positive participation experiences through well administered competitions and promotes growth in the sport of track and field.

To save you the trouble of having to go to to view/download the pre-meet notes, the publication is attached below in PDF format.

Alternatively, you may access the publication by going to and selecting the 2012 Track and Field Pre-Meet Notes toward the bottom of the page.
