Statement from the New Jersey Wrestling Officials Association
New Jersey Wrestling Officials Association
The New Jersey Wrestling Officials Association Rules Interpreter has asked The Athletic Trainers’ Society of New Jersey, Inc. to pass on the following information regarding standing injury time as it relates to head/cervical injury time. As of the 2020-2021 season, standard injury time and head/cervical injury time will run concurrently until the athletic trainer informs the referee of a head/cervical injury evaluation. At that time, head/cervical spine injury will continue and standing injury time will conclude. While the athletic trainer has a full five minutes to conduct the head/cervical evaluation, the time taken until you inform the referee that the evaluation will be a head/cervical injury will be deducted from the standard 90 seconds of injury time.
