2016-17 Wrestling Rules Changes
At its April 6-8 meeting in Indianapolis, the National Federation of State High
School Associations (NFHS) Wrestling Rules Committee added another maneuver to
the list of potentially dangerous holds in high school wrestling.
The new potentially dangerous hold occurs when a wrestler, from a standing
position, is placed in a body lock with one or both arms trapped and then is
lifted and is unable to use his arm(s) to break the fall.
“The rear standing position with a trapped arm should be considered potentially
dangerous and should be monitored very closely by the referee,” said Elliot
Hopkins, NFHS director of sports and student services and liaison to the
Wrestling Rules Committee. “Coaches, officials and competitors should be aware
of the potential for injury in this situation if the defensive wrestler is
returned to the mat and has no arm available to break the fall.”
The committee also approved a change in Rule 5-11-2 that will award penalty
point(s) to the offensive wrestler in situations where the defensive wrestler
exhibits inappropriate behavior in order to avoid being pinned.
Rule 5-11-2(i) will now read, “. . . when a defensive wrestler commits a
technical violation, applies an illegal hold/maneuver, commits unnecessary
roughness or unsportsmanlike act during an imminent or near fall situation, the
offensive wrestler shall be awarded a penalty point(s) in addition to the near
fall points in accordance with (subarticles) f-h at the next stoppage.”
“The committee felt that when the defensive wrestler uses unethical techniques
to avoid being pinned, the offensive wrestler should not only be awarded the
near fall or fall points, but should be awarded the appropriate penalty point(s)
for that transgression at the next stoppage of the match,’ Hopkins said.
These rules changes recommended by the Wrestling Rules Committee were
subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.
