08/21/15 – Reminder about Statistics Entry – Soccer and Football

August 22, 2015 Football Blog Updates

STATISTICS REMINDER
Game by game statistical entry for teams and individuals is required in the sports of football, basketball and soccer, which will be used to compile a list of statewide leaders, and can also be sent to local media outlets (with only specific schools) upon request.

For soccer, individual goal scoring and assist categories are the only categories compiled at this time and, therefore, the only required categories for individuals.

Please note this compilation is a great service to the membership and its student-athletes and is routinely touted by college recruiters as a valued source of information when they contact our office.

At this time, the software and data infrastructure do not exist for volleyball and field hockey compilation, but this is under development for the 2016-17 season.

See the note at the end of this post regarding failure to maintain current contest-by-contest statistics.

PENALTIES FOR NONCOMPLIANCE
Beginning last season, as contained in Bylaw 27, the requirements to enter and maintain rosters, schedules and statistics were enforced more rigorously. This enforcement subjects the member schools to penalties by the Commissioner, including fines and other actions, within the constraints of Bylaw 27. In general, the information (statistics, results, etc.) will have a 48-hour grace period to comply. Due to the unique nature of football and the infrequency of play, enforcement on football will likely be more aggressive concerning score reporting as well as minimal additional time (24 additional hours) to submit statistics..
As always, please feel free to contact Communications Director Joe Angolia or any member of the KHSAA staff if you have any questions or issues about the statistics, and Information Director Rob Catron if you are having trouble logging in to submit your material. .
