2016 NFHS Track and Field and Cross Country Rules Book
The list of United States high-school national records in Track and Field are separated by indoor and outdoor and boys and girls who have set a national record in their respective events. While these records have been compiled for over years, there are varying standards for these records. Those would be scholastic dual meets, high-school-only invitationals and championship meets up through the individual state championships. These records include marks made in open competition against higher-level competitors, post-season meets and international competition up until August 31 following their high-school graduation. Additionally, high-school competition is conducted under slightly different rules, which have evolved over time.
High school coaches, officials and administrators who have knowledge and experience regarding this particular sport and age group volunteer their time to serve on the rules committee. Member associations of the NFHS independently make decisions regarding compliance with or modification of these playing rules for the student-athletes in their respective states. NFHS rules are used by education-based and non-education-based organizations serving children of varying skill levels who are of high school age and younger. In order to make NFHS rules skill-level and age-level appropriate, the rules may be modified by any orga- nization that chooses to use them. Except as may be specifically noted in this rules book, the NFHS makes no recommendation about the nature or extent of the modifications that may be appropriate for children who are younger or less skilled than high school varsity athletes. Every individual using these rules is responsible for prudent judgment with respect to each contest, athlete and facility, and each athlete is responsible for exercising caution and good sportsmanship. These rules should be interpreted and applied so as to make reasonable accommodations for disabled athletes, coaches and officials.
