For nearly a year, the KHSAA staff has been working and preparing for the upcoming state wrestling tournament. After evaluating the last three to four years of tournament schedules and activity, three major problem areas were identified that needed immediate resolution:
- The “break” prior to the last wrestling round had to be eliminated, or certainly minimized. The circus atmosphere that had developed, which some may have viewed as fun, in fact resulted in at least five individuals being hit by thrown objects, including two police officers. Coaches and other adults refused to take charge of the situation, and in fact participated in many cases. And despite having more than double the security staff as had ever been in place in the previous facility, the situation came to a point where the future ability to retain security assistance from trained and sworn police officers was in jeopardy, as well as the future use of this [...]

Good morning. Hope all of you are doing everything you can to avoid the heat and are 100% complying with the Heat Index monitoring and reporting programs. For many of you, these days begin the new days with shoulder pads and helmets only, so reminders about heat are very important. Just a few general notes.
Practice Before Scrimmage
Many of you have very tight windows of preseason practice with the new revisions to the 5-3-5 requirements. I have had several inquiries about that 13th day and a scrimmage. Some have said they have 5 days helmets only, then 3 days with shoulder pads, then five days in full gear and on that 5th day, have a scrimmage. Keep in mind that because that fifth practice is full gear, you would need the full three hour break after the first practice, before scrimmaging could begin against an outside opponent. So it would likely not be possible [...]
