Paul Anzano, the NJSIAA's legal counsel, is working behind the scenes to prevent a bill from gaining approval in the state Senate. The bill could change high school sports in New Jersey. "We have a lot of friends in the legislature," Anzano said at the NJSIAA's monthly meeting yesterday. "We're talking to state senators and educating them on the issue. " The state Assembly, by a 41-29 vote, recently approved legislation that would prohibit New Jersey public schools from joining athletic associations that charge "exorbitant ticket prices" for playoff games.

ROBBINSVILLE, N.J. - The good news for the NJSIAA is that the organization lost $33,692 during the school year that ended in June. That's good news because the NJSIAA, governing body of high school sports in New Jersey, had projected a shortfall of more than $260,000. "We're changing our model," NJSIAA executive director Steve Timko said after the NJSIAA's monthly executive committee meeting this week. "We made substantial cuts, but we've been able to provide much the same services.

The NJSIAA penalized the Holy Cross wrestling team for its decision to take part in both the Beast of the East tournament in Delaware and the Jackson Invitational on Dec. 18. "We told [Holy Cross officials] that they will have to forfeit their team points that they got in the Jackson tournament," Steven J. Timko, an NJSIAA assistant director, said yesterday. "They will also have to submit a corrective action plan. " But, after being told that the Jackson tourney did not keep team scoring, Timko said Holy Cross would only have to submit a corrective action plan.

Camden High School football star Sean Chandler says there's sometimes a lot of trash talking on the field. "It motivates some people and bothers some people," Chandler said. Starting this fall, athletes and coaches will be subject to new rules designed to discourage unsportsmanlike behavior, the organization that oversees high school sports in New Jersey announced Wednesday. Under a policy developed by the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association and the state Attorney General's Office and its Division on Civil Rights, officials will enforce rules designed to crack down on harassing conduct related to race, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, or religion.

Several boys' basketball matchups in the approaching NJSIAA tournament have been changed, a spokeswoman for the athletic association confirmed yesterday. They have been altered in Group 3, which will start its tournament Feb. 26, and in the Parochial B tournament, to begin Feb. 29. In the original Group 3 bracket, Delsea was seeded sixth, Timber Creek seventh, Camden eighth and Central ninth. All four have new seedings, changing their matchups. "Delsea was misplaced and should have been ninth, based on its winning percentage" of .647, said Carol Parsons, the NJSIAA's associate director.

In an attempt to strengthen the transfer rules, the NJSIAA could inadvertently be punishing some innocent people who may have to switch schools due to diminishing finances. That is just one example why a potential new transfer rule is short-sighted. And something of this magnitude should be voted on by each member school, which may not be the case. To give some quick background, the NJSIAA's advisory committee on April 1 approved a proposal to curb transferring for athletic advantage.

"The 30-day sit is the shortest in the country," Zapicchi said of the NJSIAA's current transfer rule. "Fifty-two percent of the state associations (in the country)

ATLANTIC CITY - Competition between public and non-public schools in football could all but cease in New Jersey under the conditions of a controversial proposal presented on Tuesday by the state's governing body for scholastic sports. A New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association committee formed to seek solutions to the growing rift between public and non-public schools is recommending the creation of a non-public football conference. The committee is recommending that "a split of the public and non-public schools - for football only - be presented to the general membership for a vote" in December.

Reversing field, the NJSIAA football committee has shot down a proposal by the state's football coaches to revamp the seeding process for the public-school playoffs.

NJSIAA associate director Jack DuBois, who oversees football, said the proposal was viewed "after reconsideration" as the first step toward establishing state championships in public-school football.

By a 139-98 margin, the schools in the association that attended the annual meeting at Pines Manor shot down a proposal that would have required student-athletes who transfer without a change of residence to sit out for 45 days and also to be ineligible for tournament competition.

Basketball, wrestling, and indoor track teams in the Colonial Conference and Cape-Atlantic League will be able to start practice on Nov. 24. The same likely will be true for many teams in the Burlington County Scholastic League. But teams in the Olympic Conference will have to wait a week and won't be able to start the winter season until Dec. 1. That staggered start is a result of a decision made by the Olympic Conference to overrule a pilot program established by the NJSIAA in September to allow boys' and girls' basketball teams to start practice on the Monday before Thanksgiving.

ROBBINSVILLE, N.J. - St. Joseph needs to schedule a football game for next season. Under a proposal passed Wednesday by the NJSIAA, the Wildcats will not be allowed to play during "Zero Week" - or the week before the season's normal opener - Sept. 4 or 5 of 2015. That could be a problem. "I might be back up here in November, asking for a waiver," said Cape-Atlantic League president Mike Gatley, the athletic director at Mainland and a member of the NJSIAA's executive committee.
