South Dakota High Schools to Enforce Pre-Contest Safety Timeouts

MITCHELL, SD--South Dakota high school officials will be enforcing new rules on how to administer athletic contests to improve safety.

The South Dakota High School Activities Association will require registered officials to hold "a pre-contest medical timeout" beginning this fall. The timeout will be a short meeting held at the start of the first athletic contest for administrators, officials and coaches to discuss emergency personnel and protocols.

The medical timeout formalizes the process already in place in many school districts across the state, said John Krogstrand, the association's assistant executive director.
