Officials should use other whistles, such as electronic whistles; air horns are allowed

Substitution will take place in midfield (no connection between players)

The requirements for mouthguards and goggles still exist.

As always, high school football in Massachusetts will be played in accordance with NFHS rules with the following modifications.

Each bench area must be at least 10 yards from the midfield. Team benches (or chairs) must be set up to ensure social distance (6 feet) between players, coaches, coaches, etc. The team may end up causing players to stretch too far below the sideline. During the entire competition period, each group can only accommodate up to 3 adults (coach, volunteer, statistician, trainer, videographer-all included) on the bench. 

The timeout rule will be suspended. Timeout is not allowed. 

The referee will issue a 2-minute screen and rest time for the two teams at the appropriate parking spots at the 20-minute mark in the first and second half.

All players must check in to the game near the "midfield", but maintain social distancing from others (including game administrators). 

All alternatives for checking in and out of the game should use the hand sanitizer provided on the score sheet

Except for the following conditions, all players, coaches, referees and other game personnel must wear face masks during the game:

When the player is more than 10 feet away from the opponent, the player can take off the lower cover at some point in the game. This is to "cover the rest". The default expectation is that the face covering will be opened. Failure to cover the face correctly/correctly in accordance with these changes/criteria will result in the opposing team getting an indirect free kick and the offending player will receive a yellow card. 

The head coach is responsible for certifying that their entire team is wearing proper/approved facial covering before each match. When officials asked whether the coaching team’s equipment was correct, it also included that the team had proper facial covering. 

If game officials believe that the conditions around the work area are unsafe because they are related to face covering, they may show a yellow card to the head coach for failing to enforce face covering or social evacuation rules in the work area. 

The home team must provide at least 8 balls near the playing area, which can be put into the game at any time. Every member of the team who is not on the court can use their feet to help pick up the ball and return the ball to the sideline/target line. 

At the end of each quarter and at the end of the game, the game administrator must wipe or spray the ball (using approved disinfection products). 

The goalkeeper may not spit. They can wet them with a bottle of water. If the coach/official sees this situation, the glove will be eliminated. 

Each team has a maximum of 20 players.

It is illegal to block the ball on purpose. The opposing team will get an indirect free kick.

It is illegal to place your hands on any part of the opposing team member's body. The opposing team will get an indirect free kick. 

When the ball crosses the sideline, the restart will be a "kick" and will be treated like all other indirect kicks-including the opposing team member must be at least 10 yards from the ball. The ball will be placed on the contact line where the ball is out of range or behind the ball. It is important to note that the kick is indirect, so the offside rule is at work. The kick must be kept below the waist. If the kick exceeds the player's average waist circumference, the opposing team will get the kick.

Penalties are handled in the same way as penalty kicks, because once the ball hits the goalkeeper or goal, the ball will die. No rebound is allowed. All typical rules of penalty kicks apply. If a goal is scored, it is a goal. If the ball crosses the goal line but is not a goal, it depends on the official request whether it is a goal kick or a corner kick. If the ball bounces off the goal or the goalkeeper and stops on the playing field, then it will be the defensive team's shot to start again. 

If a player intends to complain/dispute and go in the direction of the referee, the player will receive a yellow card. If the player comes within six feet of the official to make a complaint/dispute, a red card will be issued. 

The final whistle instructed the referee to leave the venue and facilities immediately. They are not expected to sign the game table this year. The game manager/instructor is responsible for ensuring that the information on the game table is correct. 

Officials should use other whistles, such as electronic whistles; air horns are allowed.

Each team is limited to one official and one coach.

Mask: A mask that all participants, coaches and personnel must use.

The boarding school is required to set up a designated area for the students of each team so that they can rest when they leave.

If a player violates the mandatory mask rules, the referee has the right to send the player off the court.

The game will be played for four (4) minutes (running for one minute every minute).

The intermission will be eliminated.

The length of time between dormitories will be extended to 2:30.

The game ball will change at the end of each quarter.

The team is responsible for overtime meetings in accordance with social distancing rules.

The timeout period will be increased to 1:15 to provide more time for cleanup and appropriate social evacuation.

If a player falls on the court, the player should avoid picking up another player with his hands. (Unless it is deemed necessary to help the player leave the court due to injury).

Players should not crowd the court as a team before, during or after free throws or other game situations.

During the substitution process, players should not touch anything (high-five, shake hands).

The handshake has been suspended after the game. Please refer to MIAA board recommendations.

A maximum of 20 people are allowed on the bench (including athletes/partners, coaches and assistants)

At the end of each stage, the basketball will be wiped with disinfectant. Every quarter and overtime will use disinfected or new game balls.

The visiting team is responsible for providing their own basketball to warm up.

The jump ball will be cancelled to start the game and will be replaced by a throw-in at the dividing line.

A coin toss (visit team phone) will be used to determine which team is granted the ball to start the game. Alternate possession arrows will be set for the opposing team.

Note – The team that starts the game on the defensive end will retain the AP arrow even if they gain possession of the ball during the initial throw-in.

To start working overtime, a coin toss (visit team phone) will be used to determine which team gets the ball. The AP arrow will be set to the opposing team in the same way as the start of the game.

When a team intends to substitute, a player reports to the scorer's table/midfielder on the team's side. Multiple substitutions can be made. When the horn sounds, the player must walk across the scorer's table and use hand sanitizer. 

At any time (ie before the game, during substitutions, between the quarters, after the game), players must use hand sanitizer when entering or leaving the court.

In order to minimize the opponent’s face-to-face time, officials will emphasize NFHS Rule 9-10-1-a, “In the case of tight defense, players must not: A. Hold the ball in the frontcourt for five seconds or dribble for five seconds B. In his/her frontcourt, control the ball for 5 seconds in the area enclosed by the screen teammate."

The point is to enforce the following rules: the defender will not physically hinder the progress of the offensive player (without the ball; see NFHS rules 4-24, 4-26, 4-37, and 10-7).

In order to limit traffic jams and contact, the free throw lane is limited to two defensive players (one athlete and one partner).

In two/three fouls, the free throw lane will remain empty and the player can only enter the lane before the final attempt.

For one-on-one and single free throw attempts, two defensive players can put themselves in the first attempt.

In order to eliminate the crowding in the dead ball situation and the contact under the basket, the offensive action of the front court will be entered at the extension of the foul line (rather than below the basket/finish line).

In order to avoid unnecessary contact caused by time management at the end of the game, if the representative intends to foul the player receiving the inbound pass, the team representative will notify the official. Once the defensive player has lightly marked the receiving offensive player, the official will stop the game and commit a foul.

Important point-officials will quickly stop the game/whistle in loose balls/kidnappings between players to limit close contact.

In all forward throw-in games, the defensive player shall maintain a 6-foot distance from the player entering the ball area.

The home team/receiving school is responsible for providing a substitute area with a longer social distance.

If possible, additional chairs or rows can be added to allow the bench personnel and players to observe a social distance of 6 feet or more.

Where feasible, players and coaches must be assigned specific seats during the game. In the case that seats cannot be allocated, the person in court is required to disinfect the seats.
