Schools are required to send the Tug-of-War entries in advance with registration; however, changes or additions will be accepted on the day of the event. Entry cards will be made with the names submitted. Bracket positions will be drawn from the entry cards. Coaches (or Team Sponsors) are asked to submit any changes or additions at least 10 minutes prior to the starting time for competition at the site of event to the event starter.
The course consists of a starting line over which the flag is positioned at the beginning of the competition and a line on each side of the starting line 8 feet away over which each team is attempting to tug the flag. A long rope with a flag tied to the middle will be used. Teams will put tension on the rope while the official positions the flag over the starting line. Competition begins when the official blows the whistle. The team to pull the flag across their 8-foot line first is the winner. If after one minute no team has pulled the flag across the finish line, the team that has pulled the flag on their side of the starting line is the winner.
