NFHS Rule Book

Post by Eagles93 » Fri Dec 20, 2019 12:46 pm

Is the official NFHS hockey rule book available anywhere online? I wanted to look up a rule only to find that, unless I'm missing it somewhere, the only way to view the rule book is to pay for it. Why would the rule book not be readily (free) available for any player/coach/parent to view?

I think no.
I don't know.

This is pretty helpful: https://www.nfhs.org/media/1020479/ncaa ... arison.pdf

I believe you have to member of the NFHS or a body like the MSHSL that is under the NFHS umbrella. I officiate high school football and have access to all NFHS rulebooks online. To get to them I have to log in and go through my NFHS hub on Arbiter (which the MSHSL turned their hub over to this year).

You can download the E rulebook through ITunes for a few bucks like any other book.

What’s your question?

Your kid’s coach should have a copy as well.

It's not about a specific rule, per se, I find it rather odd that the rule book is not available for anyone to see the rules. Almost like they're being secretive about it. Sure, it may just be a few bucks to purchase but why charge at all, especially to download a pdf version? Every other league/organization (NHL, NCAA, USA Hockey) all have their rules available online for free.

Does it make sense when you read your post back to yourself slowly? Secretive would be not making it available.
