Weight Loss

Recommended Posts

I have been coaching now for 14 years at the high school level. This past weekend at an out-of-state tournament, one of my kids was verbally accosted by some officials for running before the tournament and weigh-ins began stating he would be kicked out of any tournament in the nation at any level for engaging in activities (exercise) that promote weight loss while in the school. They claimed this is prohibited in the NFHS rules. I've never seen anything like this enforced at any tournament in Missouri, Iowa or Illinois that I have attended.

I am not aware of any rule that prohibits this and at almost every event I have ever been to,  there are athletes working out before weigh-ins to make weight. Am I missing something?
