FEATHERS IN HAIR CLARIFICATION: There is a new trend of having feathers affixed in the hair for adornment. There are a few different methods being utilized to secure the feather(s) in the hair. The question has arisen as to whether or not the wearing of a feather(s) in the hair would be in compliance with NFHS Volleyball Rules 4-1-5 and 4-1-6.
First, the feather must meet all the material and dimension requirements in 4-1-5. If requirements are met, the feather could be worn if it is affixed to the hair by braiding or woven method. It may be worn if affixed by a soft-yielding material. However, if the feather(s) is attached with a hard, unyielding or metal material, it would not meet the requirements in 4-1-5 or 4-1-6. The metal would be similar to jewelry and is not of a soft material.
TRANSFER RULE: A student is eligible in the school zone in which his/her parents reside. Any student who completes one year's attendance at a school outside his/her home school zone and fulfills all other requirements becomes eligible in that school. (This does not apply to foreign exchange students.)
