NFHS Rules Changes for 2012-2013

Aren't these guys going to change the weight classes again this year?

Stalling Penalty Increased in High School Wrestling

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Bob Colgate
INDIANAPOLIS, IN (April 26, 2012) — High school wrestlers who are called for a third stalling violation will receive a stiffer penalty beginning with the 2012-13 season. In addition to the two-point penalty assessed for a third stalling violation, the opponent will now have his or her choice of position on the next restart.
The stalling penalty revision was one of eight rules changes approved by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Wrestling Rules Committee at its April 9-11 meeting in Indianapolis. The changes were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.
“The change to the third stalling penalty resulted from the committee’s desire to encourage wrestlers to wrestle aggressively by providing a greater incentive not to stall,” said Dale Pleimann, chair of the Wrestling Rules Committee and former assistant executive director of the Missouri State High School Activities Association. “No one likes to see a wrestler disqualified for stalling. The hope is that by increasing the third stalling penalty, a wrestler who has been penalized twice will be encouraged to pick up the pace and wrestle more aggressively.”
In other changes, the committee adjusted the current dual meet weigh-in procedure to align with the random draw.
Bob Colgate, NFHS director of sports and sports medicine and staff liaison to the Wrestling Rules Committee, said this change would provide maximum preparation and warm-up time for the first contestants scheduled to compete in a dual meet.
Three new rules were approved by the committee, including Rule 4-3-5, which states that wrestlers “may not wear wristbands, sweatbands or bicep bands during a match.” This rule was enacted in an effort to minimize risk of injury from wrestlers getting their fingers caught in an opponent’s wristband or sweatband.
Another new rule for 2012-13 is an exception to the 30-second tiebreaker. The new exception (8-2-1h) will read as follows:
“If the second injury time-out is taken at the conclusion of the first 30-second tiebreaker period and the opponent already has the choice at the beginning of the second 30-second tiebreaker period, the opponent would then have the added choice at the first restart after the beginning of the second 30-second tiebreaker period.”
This provision was a rule change last year for the regulation match and will now apply to the overtime as well.
Rule 10-2-9 will be added to next year’s rules to address what happens when two wrestlers in the championship bracket simultaneously cannot continue a match. If both wrestlers cannot continue because of disqualification for stalling or having their injury or blood time elapse, the wrestler who is leading on points at the time the match is terminated will continue in the consolation bracket. If the match is tied at the time of termination, neither wrestler will continue.
Following are the other three changes approved by the committee:
4-1-1a: Language has been updated to describe the wrestler’s singlet, and the change will also allow the T-shirt with no sleeves to be worn under the one-piece singlet when approved by the referee.
5-11-2i: Rules language was expanded to complete the near-fall and penalty sequence.
10-3-6 and 10-3-7: The tournament bracket format was revised to allow more flexibility in conducting a tournament.
“The NFHS Wrestling Rules Committee confirmed that the sport of high school wrestling is in great shape overall by making only a few changes to the scholastic rules,” Pleimann said.
Wrestling is the sixth-most popular sport for boys at the high school level with 273,732 participants in 10,407 schools during the 2010-11 season, according to the NFHS Athletics Participation Survey. In addition, 7,351 girls were involved in wrestling in 1,215 high schools.

The new stalling rule is a move in the right direction. It appears to be bringing folkstyle more in line with the international styles.

FROM MY OBSERVATION, STALLING IS NOT CALLED ENOUGH NOW.......SO, WITH A 2 PT. PENALTY ON THE 2nd CALL, THE REFS WILL BE MORE HESITANT TO CALL IT AT ALL.

I was told by Pat Tocci - NWCA that the weight classes would not be looked at this year, not a shocker that administrators can't admit they made a terrible decision

I think you misread the change. It applies only to the third stalling call. Nothing has changed on the second call -- still one pt.

I WOULD NOT CONSIDER A WARNING FOR STALLING AS A PENALTY. PENALTY STARTS WITH 1 pt.............2nd PENALTY = 2pts.

third penalty

Warning, 1 pt, 1pt, 2 pts; so it is the third penalty now it will be 2 pts and opponents choice. Thinking ahead this means action will always be stopped on the 2 pt penalty unless they decide to give choice on the first restart after the 2 pt penalty.

The way I am reading and interpreting the new rule, the 2 pts will be awarded and then on the next restart, the choice will be given.

First line of the article..."High school wrestlers who are called for a third stalling violation will receive a stiffer penalty beginning with the 2012-13 season. In addition to the two-point penalty assessed for a third stalling violation, the opponent will now have his or her choice of position on the next restart."

To me that doesn't sound like they are going to stop the action when the 3rd stalling is called. Reading that tells me they will award the two points and allow the action to continue. Then on the next restart, the opponent would get choice of position.

Correct

Yes, choice on the next restart. So if top man is called it will be right away because you stop the action but if bottom man called or it's called when neutral it will require a wait until the next restart for choice. And of course, while you're waiting for a restart someone will take their second injury time....and then.....
