The CBED Enrollment figures from the 2002 school year as certified by the State for public and private high schools will be used for placement.

When the computer enrollment data is received from the State Department of Education, schools will be divided into each Southern Section divisional category.

If a school incurs a gain/loss in enrollment of a minimum of 15% in the current year, the current year CBED enrollment figures shall be used in place of the prior year.


LEAGUE FINALS INTO DIVISIONAL PRELIMS - Each recognized league will be entitled to enter three (3) teams into the preliminaries – two (2) for a four (4) team league. Each league may enter the top three (3) individual runners not on a qualifying team, provided they finish in the top six (6) in their league meet. After entries from each league have been received by the CIF Southern Section Office on Friday, November 7, each team and individual entry will be assigned to their apprOpriate enrollment category (Divisions I, II, III, IV, V).

3 heat divisions: Four teams from each heat plus one at large team determined by team time for a total of 13 team qualifiers. Individuals (on non-qualifying teams) finishing in the top 8 will qualify from each heat with a maximum of 24 individual qualifiers from the 3 heats.

2 heat divisions: Six teams from each heat plus one at large team determined by team time for a total of 13 team qualifiers. Individuals (on non-qualifying teams) finishing in the top 12 will qualify from each heat with a maximum of 24 individual qualifiers from the 2 heats.

4 heat divisions: Four teams will qualify for the finals from each heat for a total of 16 team qualifiers. There will be no at large qualifier from a four heat division. Individuals (on non-qualifying teams) finishing in the top 6 will qualify from each heat with a maximum of 24 individual qualifiers from the 4 heats.

DIVISIONAL FINALS TO STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS - Team entries into the state championship cross country meet shall be based on a formula that is comprised of two factors: 1) An established baseline providing a minimum number of entries for each section; 2) Additional entries based upon the most recent four (4) year history of the section team performance in each divisional race. No section shall have more than seven (7) entries in any divisional race, plus the top five (5) individuals on non-qualifying teams who finished in the top twenty (20).

A comprehensive bulletin detailing the Southern Section Prelims and Finals will be forwarded to all schools in mid October. Starting with the fall of the 2003-2004 school year, only one copy of the playoff bulletin (to the Athletic Director) and two post cards (to the Principal and Coach) will be forwarded to member schools. Please refer to for all playoff information (including forms to be returned to our office) and heat sheets.

The State CIF Office will forward to each school a bulletin covering details of the State Championship activity.



125.1 - COACH EJECTION - Upon the ejection of a coach from any CIF-SS contest, it is the responsibility of the principal of said school to file a letter of explanation with the CIF Southern Section Office which includes the circumstances surrounding the matter and what action the principal has taken to prevent a recurrence. Said correspondence is to be filed within THREE school days of notification of the ejection. Additionally, upon ejection, the ejected coach shall be disqualified from participating in the remainder of the game and will be ineligible for the team's next contest. A second ejection will constitute a two contest suspension and a third ejection will cause suspension for the remainder of the season.

QUESTION: What happens if unknowingly a coach or player who was ejected the previous game participates in the next contest?
ANSWER: Being in attendance at or coaching/playing in a contest after having been ejected from a previous contest will result in the forfeiture of the contest.

QUESTION: What is meant by attendance at a contest?
ANSWER: Attendance is defined as being present at the team bench/area, inside a gymnasium, stadium or playing area. The intent of this rule is that the ejected person is not in attendance at the contest.

125.2 - FAILURE TO COMPLETE A CONTEST - When a school fails to complete a contest, due to a coach pulling his/her team from the floor, court or field, it is MANDATORY that the CIF-SS Office be notified by the Principal within 24 hours (excluding holidays and weekends). The competing schools and officials will be required to file written reports, and after review of the aforementioned material, the principal of the school involved will be required to respond to the CIF Southern Section Office concerning his/her investigation of the incident.

QUESTION: How serious is such action?
ANSWER: It has been the position of the CIF-SS Executive Committee to expect the building principal of the school concerned to relieve the coach from his/her assignment for the balance of that season or the Executive Committee is empowered to consider recommendations for additional penalties.


Any player ejected for any reason or any player who leaves the confines of the bench or team area during a fight that may break out or has broken out shall be disqualified from participating in the remainder of the game and will be ineligible for the team's next contest. The next contest may not be a forfeited, postponed or canceled game. A second ejection will constitute a two contest suspension and a third ejection will cause suspension for the remainder of the season. A player who was ejected from the previous contest who, knowingly or unknowingly, participates in or is in attendance at the next contest, will result in the forfeiture of that contest.

QUESTION: What is meant by attendance at a contest?
ANSWER: Attendance is defined as being present at the team bench/area, inside a gymnasium, stadium or playing area. Students ejected from a game in progress should remain under supervision of school staff. The intent of this rule is that the ejected person is not in attendance at the contest.


Beginning May 17, for a period not to exceed fifteen (15) days, a school may hold before and after school practice but may not participate in an interscholastic scrimmage, practice or contest.

SPECIAL NOTE: Only students currently enrolled and attending a member school (grades 9-12) may participate in spring practice/tryouts. Eighth graders do not become ninth graders until after they have graduated.


1710.1 From close of school in June OR June 11 (whichever is first) until the summer dead period, there shall be no restriction on high school coaches working with high school students registered and/or attending their respective high school, provided approval is received from the school principal.

QUESTION: Who may participate in high school summer athletic programs approved by the principal?
ANSWER: Only students registered for the upcoming school year in grades 9 through 12. Additionally, it would be a violation to allow elementary students (8th grade and below) to participate with the high school team. For students enrolled in more than one school, all summer competition must be confined to one school.

QUESTION: What are the guidelines for sport camps?
ANSWER: (A) High school sponsored sport camps during the school year or during the summer:
(1) Only students registered or enrolled in the high school can attend.
(2) The high school name or nickname can be used.
(3) Principal of the high school has given permission for the camp to take place.
(B) Other sport camps during the school year or during the summer:
(1) Students from other high schools and/or individuals from the general community are invited to attend.
(2) High school name or nickname cannot be used in the title of the camp or used in the promotion of the camp.
(3) Organizers/coaches should secure facility permit for use of school and equipment.
(4) Organizers/coaches should provide required liability insurance.
(5) The camp may be identified as the coach’s/organizer’s camp, but without any connection to the high school or the high school sports program.

NOTE: During the regular school year (from the start of the fall season until school is out in June) all Blue Book Rules apply, i.e., the Association Rule, etc.

1709.2 A summer dead period will be in effect from Monday, August 2, 2004, until the beginning of the first official starting date for fall sports which begins on August 23, 2004 No class could be offered in a summer school program which could circumvent the rule.

During the dead period, weight lifting ONLY would be permitted. No running or other type of conditioning would be allowed.

Special nationally recognized programs in various sports that require a national or regional championship format, such as Bobby Sox Softball, American Legion or Mickey Mantel Baseball, etc., would be allowed to continue, until completion, during the dead period.

An exception to this rule will allow WATER POLO AND CROSS COUNTRY ONLY the choice of a three-week period from June 28 to July 16, 2004, as a dead period with principal approval in lieu of the August dead period.



No member of the school athletic staff shall organize, sponsor, or coach a cross country team outside the season of cross country, during the school year, in which students with remaining eligibility at that school are participating.


The use of tobacco products in conjunction with any CIF Southern Section athletic contest is prohibited. This would include all those involved in the contest including players, coaches and officials.


State and Southern Section Rule 308 states:

"No CIF team or individual shall participate in interscholastic or approved competition with any other team unless the CIF team is under supervision as required by the California Administrative Code Title V and CIF Bylaw 506(B). (Additionally, refer to Rule 123.)"

It should be noted that schools representing the same district may send one credentialed or certified supervisor for three or four students. These individuals have been recognized and are to continue to be recognized for registration and participation purposes in that the district has assigned the supervisory role for all students from its member schools to this one individual.

However, the concern is for those students who are not accompanied by a faculty representative and report to the playoff site by themselves or with a parent.


As pointed out by the Southern Section and State CIF Attorney, there are also inherent liability problems when an individual competes in violation of said rule. Please review this rule with your staff in that it will be strictly enforced as per the above application.


A high school may conduct physical conditioning before and after school outside the season of sport. This conditioning may include weight training, aerobics, jogging or other related conditioning activities, but specific skills or equipment related to that particular sport MAY NOT be used in such conditioning activity.

QUESTION: What would constitute a violation of the conditioning rule?
ANSWER: An example of a violation would be if the high school basketball coach were to have students with remaining eligibility running in the gym dribbling a basketball or conducting other activities, such as simulating lay-ups. It would be permissible to run laps on the track, without any equipment, or to lift weights. Further, it is suggested that all conditioning programs be conducted in conjunction with the weight room and no use of a permanent facility, such as a gym for basketball or volleyball, etc., be utilized.

QUESTION: May an athlete participate in conditioning programs before and after school outside the season of sport without an annual physical examination?
ANSWER: No - An annual physical examination is required before a student may tryout, practice (to include physical conditioning) or participate in interscholastic athletic competition.

QUESTION: With regard to conditioning, in the sports of cross country and track and field, what are athletes permitted to do?
ANSWER: Athletes may take part in a conditioning program which could include running, however, no coaching or teaching of skills pertaining to the sport by the coach may take place. Additionally, no sport specific equipment may be used.

QUESTION: Is interval training and/or road runs during the track and field preseason considered a violation of the conditioning rule?
ANSWER: No. Aerobic conditioning may take place after school as long as specific skills are not being worked on and the emphasis is on conditioning.


A student on a high school team becomes ineligible if the student competes in a contest on an "outside" team, in the same sport, during the student's high school season of sport. If the outside team has half or more of the team members as stated in the National Federation rule book for that sport, it shall be considered the same sport. *Examples: three on three basketball -- outside team competition prohibited; two on two volleyball -- outside team competition permitted. For purposes of this rule, touch football and flag football are considered to be a different sport than tackle football. In the sport of soccer only, it is permissible for a student on a high school team to compete in a contest on an "outside" soccer team except during the period of November 15 through March 15. During the period of November 15 through March 15, a student on a high school soccer team becomes ineligible if the student competes in a contest on an "outside" soccer team during the student's high school season for soccer. This rule shall not be in effect for those sports conducted outside the state adopted season of sport.

QUESTION: What is the definition of the student's high school season for soccer in the Southern Section?
ANSWER: A season of sport is defined as that period which begins with a student’s first interscholastic competition (non-league game, tournament, contest or league game). For the 2003-2004 season, the date would be December 1, 2003.

QUESTION: May a student who competes at the freshman or junior varsity level compete on an outside team during his or her high school season of sport?
ANSWER: No. The Outside Competition Rule pertains to all levels of competition. Thus, any individual participating at the varsity, junior varsity, sophomore and/or freshman levels may not compete on an outside team during his or her high school season of sport. *See exception in above paragraph.



(1) FIRST OFFENSE IN HIGH SCHOOL CAREER IN ANY SPORT - The student becomes immediately ineligible for participation with his/her high school team for a number of contests equal to twice the number of contests of outside competition in which the student participated.

(2) ANY SUBSEQUENT OFFENSE IN HIGH SCHOOL CAREER IN ANY SPORT - The student becomes immediately ineligible for one year (365 days) from the second infraction in all sports.

(3) APPEALS - Upon written appeal to the Section Commissioner, the student may petition his/her section for reinstatement of his/her eligibility status.


(1) GAMES FORFEITED - Games in which a student participated on his/her high school team after violation of CIF Bylaw 600 shall be forfeited.

(2) APPEALS - Sections may establish rules and procedures to consider requests for waivers of game forfeitures.


1. MAXIMUM CONTEST - An individual of a cross country team will be permitted to enter and participate in no more than a total of 11 dual, triangular or invitational (sanctioned) meets during the season, not including all-league or CIF Southern Section Championships.

2. COMPETITION IN ONE DAY - An individual may compete in only one (1) cross country race in any one (1) day.

3. OUTSIDE COMPETITION - (Unattached) competition is permissible for a student in other than school contests during the season of sport. Please refer to Blue Book Rule 606 regarding unattached competition which will highlight specific regulations in reference to athletes who compete unattached.

4. PROPER UNIFORM - All Athletes competing in cross country must be in proper team uniform and wear running shoes. Spikes are not permitted.

5. DISTANCE OF RACES - The maximum distance in all non-league, league and invitational cross country competition shall be 5,000 meters (3.1 miles)(Adopted Southern Section Council March 22, 2001). A shorter distance may be adopted by a league or by mutual agreement by schools for non-league competition.

6. TEAM COMPOSITION - Coaches are urged to become familiar with CIF Rule 200 in reference to Boys and Girls team competition. Major emphasis would be the area of your school fielding only one team and its makeup consisting of both Boys and Girls. If a Girl is a member of this student team, she - at the conclusion of the regular season - WOULD NOT be permitted to compete in the Girls' cross country championships, but must take part in the boys' championships, if she so qualifies.

In order for a Girl to compete in the CIF-SS Girls' post-team cross country championships, she must have been a member of a Girls' team for the regular season or have run as a freelance entry all season due to the fact that her school fielded only a Boys' team or did not field any team in this sport.

7. RULES - Cross Country competition in the CIF Southern Section is conducted under National Federation Rules, which are contained in the 2003 edition of the National Federation Track and Field Rule Books.

8. No interscholastic contests or practices of any kind are to be held on Sunday.


It has come to the attention of this Office that some schools in this Section may be violating Section and State rules relative to coaches and/or school involvement with athletes in the sport of cross country OUTSIDE THE SEASON OF SPORT DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR.

We would ask that coaches review the outside competition rule in that association with athletes is allowed outside the season of sport IN ONE REGULARLY SCHEDULED PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLASS ONLY and that schools and coaches may not be involved in outside meets with their athletes, such as the Foot Locker Cross Country Championships which are conducted after the Southern Section and State Final. These meets are not sanctioned or sponsored by the CIF Southern Section. High school athletes participating in these meets do so as unattached individuals. The school cannot provide or be involved with the furnishing of uniforms, transportation, lodging, coaching and/or before and after school practice.




Preparing Your Athletes For Competition In Hot Weather
By Cari V. Gisolfi, Ph.D. Department of Exercise Science, University of Iowa

Specific steps must be taken to prepare athletes for training and competing in hot weather. Proper preparation can improve athletic performance and reduce the potential for thermal injury.
Under adverse climatic conditions, including high temperature and humidity, heat gained from the combination of physical exertion and the hot environment can exceed the body’s capacity to remove heat through perspiration. In such instances, heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke may occur as a result of dehydration and elevated body temperature. Such thermal injuries can occur regardless of the athlete’s physical condition or ability to adapt to hot weather.

How the Body Handles Excess Heat During Exercise
During exercise, heat produced by working muscles exceeds heat released by the body, and body temperature rises. The rise in body temperature causes an increase in sweating and blood flow to the skin. As a result, heat is removed by the evaporation of sweat from the skin, radiated from the body to the cooler surroundings, and is lost by convection to moving air (e.g., wind chill).

When the rate at which heat is produced during exercise equals the rate at which heat is lost from the body, the body temperature will plateau at an elevated level. However, when more heat is produced during exercise than the body can lose, body temperature will rise to a potentially dangerous level. High environmental temperatures and humidity contribute to the risks of thermal injury because they reduce the body’s ability to remove heat. Athletes who are untrained and unacclimatezed (not accustomed to the heat) can maintain an elevated, but safe, body temperature during moderate exercise in temperatures ranging from 50 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. With proper training and heat acclimatization, athletes can safely increase the intensity and duration of exercise in even hotter environments.

There is little chance that under hot, humid weather conditions thermal injury will occur in competitive events lasting up to 10 minutes (the vast majority of track events). But, body temperature could rise to dangerous levels (e.g., 106 degrees Fahrenheit) under these conditions during exercise lasting 12-to-15 minutes or longer, especially if the competition is preceded by a vigorous warm-up that elevates the body temperature.

How To Acclimate Your Athletes
Athletes can acclimate their bodies to excessive heat and humidity by performing mild to moderate exercise in a hot environment. After one and one-half to four hours of exercise per day for five to fifteen days, the body will adjust (acclimate) to hot and humid weather conditions. Successful heat acclimatization results in: (1) a lower resting body temperature, (2) lower skin and core temperature during exercise, (3) decreased exercise heart rate and metabolism, and (4) increased sweating and evaporative cooling. All of these changes help athletes safely improve their performance in hot weather. The acclimatization process is similar in men and women, is not influenced by the menstrual cycle, and does not seem to be affected by age.

Endurance training, even in a cool environment, produces physiological adjustments similar to those caused by heat acclimatization. Training and acclimatization enable athletes to exercise at considerably greater exercise intensities while maintaining safe acclimatization are required for an optimal ability to exercise in the heat.

How To Prevent Thermal Injuries
?In preparing for outdoor competition under hot, humid conditions, warm up in the shade to avoid raising body temperature too high, too soon.

?Rest in the shade between competitive events. Exposure to the sun can cause blood to accumulate in the skin. This makes less blood available to muscles during subsequent exercise.

?Wear minimal, loose-fitting clothing to help promote heat loss

?During prolonged exercise in the heat, body fluids lost as sweat must be replaced as frequently as possible to avoid dehydration and subsequent thermal injury. Drinking 12-to-20 ounces (1 ½ to 2 ½ cups) of fluid 10-20 minutes prior to competition is a good idea, but can not substitute for ingesting fluids during exercise. Running through a shower or being hosed with water also will not prevent the rise in body temperature during exercise.

?Fluids (e.g., sports drinks) ingested during exercise should contain 5-8 percent carbohydrate and a small amount of electrolytes. Such beverages will provide a source of fuel for the working muscles and will facilitate the absorption of water and glucose from the intestines.

?Throughout heavy work or prolonged exercise, at least eight ounces (1 cup) of fluid should be consumed very 15-to-20 minutes.

?The pre-season regimen for competitive football, long distance running and other sports under hot and/or humid conditions should be preceded by one-to-two weeks of conditioning. This means working one-to-two hours per day in the heat, while earing minimal clothing and drinking liberally. This will help athletes gradually achieve heat-acclimatization.

?Practice sessions under hot, humid conditions should be limited to very moderate workouts or be canceled.

?Athletes who typically train and compete in cool weather but are scheduled to compete in the heat can markedly improve their heat tolerance by training in excess clothing. Carefully supervised use of this practice will stimulate a warm environment and improve the heat-acclimatization process. Similar to exercise in warm weather, frequent fluid consumption is a must during this type of exercise.
Applying proper precautionary steps prior to and during exercise can help athletes avoid thermal injuries. Techniques, such as warming-up in the shade, ingesting adequate fluids, and wearing loose-fitting clothing can safeguard athletes’ health and maximize performance.

The coach is in a better position to have a positive influence on the youth of a community than any other member of the faculty. He/She has an obligation to develop a personality and character which are above reproach. The example set by the coach is of extreme importance. The character-building potential of athletics is closely related to the character of the coach.
Athletics furnish a setting for the demonstration of attitudes of players which are a direct reflection of the coach. It takes self-discipline on the part of the coach to always let reason, rather than emotions, guide conduct. To build the correct pattern for your athletes, give the following points your attention:

1. Watch your language. Obscenity and profanity have no place in an educational setting. Additionally, racial or ethnic comments will never be condoned.
2. You can explain defeat, but do not alibi for it.
3. Do not gloat in victory; this is even more offensive than the alibi.
4. Do not challenge the decision of officials.
5. Do not lose your temper, because with it will go your poise.
6. Organize your work well in advance, make a work schedule and carry it out effectively.
7. Do not try to take unfair advantage of the rules.
8. Give leadership opportunities to your players.
9. The coach's job is to develop the individual players and the team into a unit which can give a performance approaching their maximum ability as individuals and as a team. This must be done within the best meaning of the word SPORTSMANSHIP.

10 years ago, halftime conversation between A.D.?s usually meant talk about coaching needs, budget restraints and scheduling problems. Today such gab sessions include a new topic - concern over debilitating lawsuits in the athletic arena.
“But what can I tell my people, right now? Give me some practical suggestions for my coaches, who are on the firing line!” These kinds of comments, which I bear continually, are the genesis for the following legal defensive game plan. Each suggestion has already been shown to effectively deter legal entanglements.
Pre-season Warm-ups for Legal Stamina
1. Realize you are not the one coach who?ll never be sued. In the 1950?s, one out of 100,000 people in the United Stales was involved in a lawsuit. In 1990, it is projected to be one in every five! The potential of being sued is there, and we must realize we have specific legal responsibilities. Being aware of this simple fact is the foundation of the defensive game plan.
2. Join professional groups and become familiar with their insurance programs.
3. Meet with your athletic director and other coaches to review policies, procedures and requirements. Don?t accept, “We?ll look into that question.” Get the answers before the problem arises.
4. Make sure every player has passed a preseason medical exam.
5. Communicate with your players over the summer. Offer a general physical conditioning program to keep them in shape. The more you demonstrate your care for the well being of your players, the lower your chances of being sued. Such actions establish your credibility, and nothing protects you from a lawsuit like credibility does.
6. Check your equipment and facilities. Yes, I know, the maintenance department told you the football goalpost ground sleeve has been covered and will not cause a problem during the upcoming season - but please, check it out anyway. It?s only take a minute and it may save you months of litigation.
7. Establish a member of your staff as the team?s “safety czar.” He is the one who will routinely check out all safety problems and policies. Assigning someone to continually evaluate the safety policies of the program can?t hurt, and such documented sensitivity looks very good in a court of law.
8. Staff meetings should include more than X?s and 0?s. Give the safety czar some time at each meeting. Again, such foresight demonstrates you concern and that demonstrates your credibility.
9. Usually a coach is sued because of an alleged failure to meet one of the following duties:
* warn players about the possibility of being injured
* properly condition a player for the specific activity
* properly supervise players at all times
* offer proper equipment and facilities
* offer proper instruction and
* give proper first aid and/or emergency care.
Any defensive game plan must be predicated on these duties. 10. Maintain records of everything you do - and I mean everything. Such documentation should demonstrate progressive, sequential and well-planned practice procedures. In short, written records demonstrate your professionalism.
11. Establish training rules that not only include the standard items such as the avoidance of alcohol, drugs, smoking, etc., but also include policies about transportation, equipment care, the reporting of injuries to the athletic trainer and horseplay in the locker room. Include such items as proper rest and nutritional needs.
12. Follow your league rules to the letter, especially as they apply to safety considerations.
13. Establish an emergency procedure. One school I know of not only reviews such procedures but also distributes wallet-sized cards listing these procedures and important phone numbers.
14. Work with your athletic director. If the trainer says your best spiker cannot play in the championship volleyball game, accept that decision as if it were written in stone.
15. Don?t allow an injured player to return to participation without the approval of the athletic trainer and/or team doctor.
16. Know the basics of equal competition, especially in the early stages of the season. The “green” 185-pound wrestler should not be scrimmaging against the 1 85-pound returning state champion.
17. Learn to say no. This is the hardest word in the coach?s vocabulary. If you have to leave for a scouting trip, say no to the athlete who wants to stay after practice for extra work. Today?s litigious sensitivity no longer permits such age-old practices.
18. If a potential legal situation does arise, avoid unnecessary communication. Take care of the injured player, and be considerate and professional. Do not, however, offer your opinion, accept blame or give unnecessary information to the public at large.
Post-Season Strategies to Stay Legally Fit
19. Review your program. Keep what worked, not only from the viewpoint of wins and losses, but also from meeting your safety and legal responsibilities.
20. Ask for constructive criticism and/or recommendations from those you respect, including players.
21. Evaluate and recondition all equipment.
22. Place orders for new equipment and communicate your needs for the next season, for example, was there a field problem, such as holes that need to be filled? Again, put everything in writing.
23. Attend clinics and workshops to remain abreast with current issues, regulations and procedures.
Following all these suggestions will not insure you immunity from becoming a defendant in a lawsuit. They will, however, lower the chances considerably, and that?s about all you can expect from any defensive game plan.

Human Immunodeficiency virus [Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) virus] in the Athletic Setting


Because athletes may bleed following trauma, they represent a theoretical risk to others if they are infected with the human immunodeficiency virus [HIV, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) virus]. Two questions have concerned coaches, athletic trainers, and school administrators: Should an athlete known to be infected with HIV be allowed to participate in competitive sports, and should the universal precautions recommended for health care worker1 be used when handling athletes’ blood and body fluids?

The risk of infection from skin exposure to the blood of a child or adolescent infected with HIV is unknown, but it is apparently minute and is much less than the risk of HIV infection by needle sticks from infected patients of approximately 1:250. 2 Although it is theoretically possible that transmission of HIV could occur in sports such as wrestling and football in which bleeding and skin abrasions are common, no such transmission has been reported in these sports. There is one report of possible transmission of HIV involving a collision between soccer players.3 However, this report from Italy remains undocumented.

If an HIV-infected athlete would choose to pursue another sport, this possible risk to others would be avoided; but, in the absence of any proven risk, involuntary restriction of an infected athlete is not justified. Informing others of the athlete’s status would probably lead to his or her exclusion due to inappropriate fear and prejudice and therefore should also be avoided. This advice must be reconsidered if transmission of HIV is found to occur in the sports setting. Athletes should also be made aware of the hazards of needle sharing for illicit drug use, including steroids.
Universal precautions adapted for the athletic setting are provided in Recommendation 6. Risk of exposure to a variety of infectious diseases is greater for coaches and trainers because of their interaction with many athletes. Competitors have extraordinarily low exposure rates. Coaches and athletic trainers should use these precautions if they are exposed repetitively to athletes’ blood, because a rare athlete may have an HIV infection and because the athletic staff may not know this (as a result of the current practice of non-disclosure or because HIV-infected individuals may be asymptomatic and unaware of their infection).
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends:

1. Athletes infected with HIV should be allowed to participate in all competitive sports. This advice must be reconsidered if transmission of HIV is found to occur in the sports setting.
2. A physician counseling a known HIV-infected athlete in a sport involving blood exposure, such as wrestling or football, should inform him of the theoretical risk of contagion to others and strongly encourage him to consider another sport.
3. The physician should respect a HIV-infected athlete’s right to confidentiality. This includes not disclosing the patient’s status of infection to the participants or the staff of athletic programs.
4. All athletes should be made aware that the athletic program is operating under the policies in Recommendations 1 and 3.
5. Routine testing of athletes for HIV infection is not indicated.
6. The following precautions should be adopted:
a. Skin exposed to blood or other body fluids visibly contaminated with blood should be cleaned as promptly as is practical, preferably with soap and warm water. Skin antiseptics (eg, alcohol) or moist towelettes may be used if soap and water are not available.
b. Even though good hand-washing is an adequate precaution,4 water-impervious gloves (latex, vinyl, etc) should be available for staff to use if desired when handling blood or other body fluids visibly contaminated with blood. Gloves should be worn by individuals with non-intact skin. Hands should be washed after glove removal.
c. If blood or other body fluids visibly contaminated with blood are present on a surface, the object should be cleaned with fresh household bleach solution made for immediate use as follows: 1 part bleach in 100 parts of water, or 1 tablespoon bleach to 1 quart water (hereafter called “fresh bleach solution”). For example, athletic equipment (eg, wrestling mats) visibly contaminated with blood should be wiped clean with fresh bleach solution and allowed to dry before reusing.
d. Emergency care should not be delayed because gloves or other protective equipment are not available.
e. If the care giver wishes to wear gloves and none are readily available, a bulky towel may be used to cover the would until on off-the-field location is reached where gloves can be used during more definitive treatment.
f. Each coach and athletic trainer should receive training in first aid and emergency care and be provided with the necessary supplies to treat open wounds.
g. For those sports with direct body contact and other sports where bleeding may be expected to occur 6:
1. If a skin lesion is observed, it should be cleansed immediately with a suitable antiseptic and covered securely 5.
2. If a bleeding wound occurs, the individual’s participation should be interrupted until the bleeding has been stopped and the wound is both cleansed with antiseptic and covered securely or occluded. 5
h. Saliva does not transmit HIV. However, because of potential fear on the part of those providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation, breathing (Ambu) bags and oral airways for use during cardiopulmonary resuscitation should be available in athletic settings for those who prefer not to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
i. Coaches and athletic trainers should receive training in prevention of HIV transmission in the athletic setting; they should then help implement the recommendations suggested above.

By John Mahr and George Payan

The following guidelines are a list of concerns and caution that athletic administrators and coaches should be aware of and implement at all times for the safety and success of their programs’ athletes and staff. Guidelines to Protect Against Abuse/Harassment Allegations...Every year coaches in the normal performance of their duties unknowingly put themselves at risk for allegations of abuse or harassment from athletes. Strict adherence to the following guidelines will minimize your chances of having accusations made against you.

1. Avoid touching athletes. If necessary, touch athletes only out of coaching (teaching) reasons and only in ways that are clearly non-sexual. Be especially sensitive to athletes who react in even the slightest negative degree to being touched.

2. Never touch an athlete in anger.

3. Never arrange to meet an athlete away from school without parent permission.

4. Avoid meeting with a student in a closed classroom or other meeting room.

5. Never, except in a true emergency, transport a student in your vehicle without parent consent.

6. Never ask an athlete not to tell his/her parents about an incident which has occurred.

7. Never write or say anything to a student that you would not be comfortable sharing with the student’s parents or the administration.

8. Avoid good-natured “joking” that could be misconstrued by any of your students.

9. Avoid giving athletes repeated compliments that focus on physical attributes.

10. Coaches of athletes with special needs who may occasionally require physical intervention should make sure that such intervention is necessary and that all school personnel and parents understand the nature of the intervention before it occurs.

Solutions Goals/Guidelines

1. Athletic Policy (Awareness of the Problem)

a) Statement of Philosophy (include inappropriate behavior and filing a complaint)

b) Parent Verification of Athletic Policy

c) Student Verification of Athletic Policy

2. Coaches workshop each year – Beginning of the year

a) Signed by Coach 3. Head coach leads a pre-season meeting with all athletes and staff together to discuss what is appropriate and not appropriate (CROSSING THE LINE).

a) Steps - filing a complaint

1. Head Coach
2. Athletic Director
3. If the Athletic Director is the coach/then to Principal
4. Principal
5. Police Department

The bottom line is to use good judgment and common sense.

Administrator Goals/Guidelines

1. Hire experienced coaches...experience should include tenure as an assistant coach; First Aid/CPR Certification; Coaching Certification (i.e., AAF/CIF)...experience should include education in the areas of coaching the female athletes.

2. Hire certificated and/or classified professionals who are closely related to the institution/school.

3. Do not place the coach or cause the coach(es) to be put into positions that may be potentially compromising. Help them to become better educated and prudent professionals; provide assistance with athletic training, locker room supervision, chaperone needs, etc.

4. Athletic Directors must communicate with their coaches.

Coaches Guidelines:

1. Try to avoid awkward situations. Your relationship with your athletes is a professional one.

2. Limit physical contact to group situations where it won’t be misunderstood by the athlete or anyone else.

3. Keep one-on-one situations to a minimum.

4. Be aware of the fact that there are two issues: actually crossing the line and the appearance of crossing the line.

5. Male head coaches should have at least one female assistant coach or vice versa.

6. Coaches must communicate with one another on the daily and weekly plan of action...who will cover what assignments...what problems might arise and how should a coach go about dealing with or remedying such situations.

7. Coaches must be made aware, in advance of potential situations that might compromise their situation professionally, morally and legally...

a) Being put into a situation where a coach is alone with an athlete of the opposite gender.

b) Having to transport an athlete home after a practice...especially doing so alone with no one else in the car. Coaches should not transport any athlete home except in extreme emergencies.
c) While on trips away from school, no chaperone or coach should be alone with an athlete for any reason at any time.

8. Locker room supervision problems need to be addressed by the athletic and PE administration. A male coach should not be expected to supervise a female locker room at any time. Care should be taken to have some adult female in attendance during regular locker room use.

9. Coaches must be consistent with the use of proper language and ways to professionally convey their message...demeaning, degrading, and profane language have no part in a coach’s vocabulary.

10. The coach must be careful in regard to making close/intimate contact or what might be construed as such forms of contact with any athlete.

11. The coach must be careful to watch for athletes dressing in an inappropriate manner prior to competitions and practice. Modesty/decency in regard to dress is a “must.”

12. Coaches must be aware of the warning signs of eating disorders, what to look for and even ask if they suspect a problem occurring. With the help of school counselors and parents, they can treat such a situation with privacy and understanding of the athlete’s well being.

13. The coach must be conscientious with the use of his/her language and phrases so as not to convey a message to athletes that they are hopelessly “obese, fat, overweight,” etc., to gain approval. The psycho-physiological effects can be devastating and lead to many self-degradation disorders. Be wise and positive in your choice of words!

14. It is paramount for coaches to remember that they are working with young adults. Competitive expectations should not outweigh our concern for their overall well-being. Training and competition schedules as well as the overall time and commitment expectations should be developed around a need for the athletes to be well-rounded individuals. Any program that dominates or directs the athlete’s time away from family, school, work, church, friends is a detriment and danger to their welfare.

Careful attention should be paid by head coaches to remind themselves and assistants, continually, of the concerns and dangers of the failure of not acting responsibly and within professional guidelines. Once a season (pre-season meeting) may not be enough...being “ever-vigilant” and aware is a key.

If accused by anyone of abuse or harassment, contact your Association immediately. Do not provide a statement to the police or others without securing legal representation through your Association. (Only Association members are afforded this protection.)
