Masks & Social Distancing
GHSA encourages all officials, coaches, game administrators and players on sideline to wear a mask and practice social distancing where possible.
Officials should wear ALL BLACK masks when not officiating live ball play.
We also encourage officials to carry a small container of hand sanitizer with them to use after interacting with players or equipment.

The referee shall NOT draw up players in lines facing each other prior to the opening faceoff.
Modification to Rule 4 Section 3 Facing Off Art. 3
The official administering the faceoff shall place the ball on the midline where they wish to conduct faceoff rather than wait until players have positioned themselves.
