If the ejection takes place in the final game of the season, the suspension will carry over to the following season.
When schools have students or coaches with multiple ejections, the school shall submit to the NSAA a written management plan on how they plan to remediate the problem.
Officials will be expected to file with the NSAA an ejection report for any ejection of a player or coach from a contest online. Any unusual situation that occurs prior to, during, or after a contest should also be reported.
Prompt reporting to the NSAA office by the official is necessary. Officials are asked to submit their electronic report or call the NSAA office by the day following the ejection.
Officials are asked to be specific in listing the reason(s) for an ejection.
Affiliated officials (officials registered from contiguous states) will also be required to perform this reporting function.
There is no appeal process for ejections for unsportsmanlike conduct.
The Executive Director shall reserve the right to consider the length of suspensions when some levels of competition are scheduled on an irregular basis (e.g., three weeks between regularly scheduled non-varsity contests).
NSAA ONLINE RULES MEETINGS
The NSAA presents rules meetings in order to inform and educate coaches, officials, and judges about NFHS playing rules and rules changes, NSAA guidelines and approved rulings, and to discuss health and safety issues related to activities participation.
All head coaches are required to attend an NSAA Rules Meeting or complete an NSAA Rules Meeting online annually. Failure to do so will result in possible late fees and suspension penalties.
Online rules meetings are initially offered at no cost to coaches or officials, followed by a period with a $25 “Late” Fee, followed by a period with a $50 “Delinquent” Fee. The following sanctions and fees are applicable to those coaches who fail to complete the rules meeting by the expiration of the “Delinquent” Fee period.
