After getting clarification from the AAA, Rule 14 does not apply to track and field. Track is considered an individual sport and therefore does not fall under this rule.
Arkansas MileSplit has interviewed numerous high school coaches from around the state and 90% of them agree that track should fall under this rule. The coaches that we talked to had one main concern in common and that was the safety of the athletes. Athletes that participate on a high school team who leave practice and go to "club" practice are at a higher risk of injury.
This is a topic that Arkansas MileSplit will be digging a little deeper into!! We would love to hear from a club coach and get their side of the story.
