The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel on Thursday approved participants having one minute to initiate their attempt in men's and women's throwing events, horizontal jumping events and high jump, beginning with the 2022-23 academic year.

The new rule for field event athletes to initiate their trial within one minute after their name is called would put NCAA rules in line with World Athletics rules.

Previously, athletes in those field events had 30 seconds to initiate their trial.

Other rules changes

  • The panel approved officials using video review, if available, in all field events, beginning with the 2022-23 academic year, to see whether an infraction or violation occurred.
  • Panel members approved eliminating mixed-gender competition in the horizontal jumps, throws and 10,000 meters.
