2016 NFHA FOOTBALL RULES CHANGES
To elimate clipping in the free-blocking zone (rule 2-17-3) was the most
significant change. clipping is now illegal anywhere on the field.
Tooth and mouth protectors that are completely clear or completely white are
no longer illegal. Rule (1-5-1d) a continues to require that tooth and mouth protectors
include an occlusal (protecting and separating the biting-surfaces) portion and a
labial (protecting the teeth and supporting structures) portion. and that they cover the
posterior teeth with adequate thickness.
rule (1-5-2b) football gloves are now required to meet either the new sports and
fitness industry Association (sfia) specidications or the existing (nocsae) test standards
at the time of manufacture.
2015 NFHS FOOTBALL RULES CHANGES
SPEARING DEFINITION REVISED (2-20-1C): The definition of spearing was revised to
continue the focus on minimizing risk of injury. Spearing is an act by any player who
initiates contact against an opponent at the shoulders or below with the crown (top
portion) of his/her helmet.
CORRECTING A DOWN NUMBER ADDED (5-1-1B NEW) The referee is granted
authorization to correct the number of the next down prior to ball becoming live after
a new series of downs is awarded.
FREE-KICK FORMATIONS REVISED (6-1-3; 6-1-4 NEW; 6-1 PENALTY): In a revision of the
2014 rule change regarding free-kick formations, the timing of the foul for not having at
least four players on each side of the kicker now occurs when the ball is kicked.
EXCESSIVE CONTACT ADDED TO UNNECESSARY ROUGHNESS (9-4-3G): With an emphasis
on risk minimization, the unnecessary roughness provisions were expanded. No player
or nonplayer shall make any other contact with an opponent, including a defenseless
player, which is deemed unneccessary or excessive and which incites roughness.
ROUGHING THE PASSER PENALTY CLARIFIED 9-4 PENALTY): An automatic first down is
not awarded for a 5-yard incidental face-mask penalty against the passer.
DEAD-BALL PENALTY ENFORCEMENT MODIFIED (10-2-5); The distance penalities for
unsportsmanlike, nonplayer or dead-ball personal fouls committed by teams can offset.
Equal numbers of 15-yard penalties by both teams will cancel and remaining penalties
may be enforced.
