How well do you know the NFHS rules for high school sports? Using the NFHS Rules app you will be able to find out! “NFHS Rules” allows official NFHS rule questions to be sent directly to your mobile device allowing you to challenge your rule knowledge and keep you aware of different situations for your chosen sports. For the sports that you subscribe to, it not only allows you access to the NFHS Rules but you can also gain the valuable knowledge found in the Case Books of your sports. “NFHS Rules” app contains all the information found in the printed copy, but adds the key advantages of not only portability but the digital format also allows quick and easy searches to be performed.

Books randomly disappear

This app used to work great, but something has happened in the last year to change that. My books randomly disappear and NFHS wants to charge me $6.95 to replace them on the app. I do log in with my state association email as directed, but that doesn’t fix anything. The fact I give it two stars instead of one is because it is a great app when it works properly.

No Book, No Support

I am a licensed official in multiple sports, and a member of NFHS Officials. Had my books here last year. Nothing changed with my NFHS or State Association login, and now I have no books. Used the contact us section to report issue multiple times, still no books. Not even an email back to let me know they are aware. I have a paper copy of the books that comes with my license, but no access in the app.

If the rule books are sent to publishing in a word processing/PDF document (as all publishers have done for two decades), what expense is truly incurred by giving access to officials, or anyone with a genuine interest in learning the rules? Aren’t the rules edited by a committee of members? Are there really any royalties or copyrights to be paid? Why then does the organization charge for the privilege of referencing their rules?

It’s one thing to not support your app, but failing to support the officials, coaches, players and fans that want to know, coach, and play by the rules, goes against the mission statement of the organization. Perhaps that should be changed to, “To make money through fees, dues, and subscriptions while inspiring participants to make nothing, be ignorant, and all while being a good sport about it.” This makes me wonder where the $25,000 my state alone sends to the NFHS every year for officials’ memberships alone, is actually being spent.

Unable to access downloaded/purchased rule/case books

I purchased the soccer rule book in 2018. I didn’t realize it would only last one year (subscription) and then I wouldn’t be able to access it... oh well, I don’t like that I can’t look at the ‘old’ rule book, but I can see the need to continue generating revenue but that isn’t my main problem.

When I access the app currently it shows that I have the 20-21 soccer rule book in my library (even though I didn’t re-up my subscription) so I thought maybe they stopped the subscribing model and just made it a ‘one time purchase’ and my previous purchase had given me access! Sweet, right! NOPE. I can’t actually open either the rule or case book. Also, I go to ‘buy’ the books again to have access, but I can’t because it thinks I already have them...

Thus, in the end, I don’t have much good to say about this app. It worked well for the first month and handful of times I used it in 2018, but been a brick since... I see they are continuing to update the app, but they are missing some major bug fixes
