Photographers MAY use electronic strobe cameras during the progress of a sporting event as long as, in the opinion of the contest officials, the flash doesn’t hinder the actions of, or endanger the contestants.

We want to remind everyone that it’s the time of year when scammers try to take advantage of unsuspecting citizens on social media by selling pay-per-view links for athletic contests. They are fake! Please do not provide your credit card number or personal information! All audio/radio and television/live streams MUST be approved through the IHSAA ThreeSixtyGroup. Once the approved media list is shared with us, we will update this post with participating media so you know who is legit! Be safe, fans!
