Archery Blog Updates
As the school year begins, and for planning purposes we would like you to be aware of some important changes for the postseason in Archery. Due to some potential misinformation that is being circulated, we felt it better to communicate this information when it becomes available instead of waiting until the season actually begins later in the year.
The KHSAA archery tournament dates and basic management are being adjusted, particularly with respect to scheduling. The KHSAA, along with our partners at KY Fish and Wildlife and the NASP are trying to move our tournaments to a time with less conflict with other sports and sport-activities and to make the events truly KHSAA events. In the end, these moves will create even more shooting opportunities for our high school archers while changing/eliminating the cost element to many of the participants. KHSAA, KY Fish and Wildlife and NASP are working together to make sure that all of these [...]
With the Kentucky Department of Education’s statewide ACT test date being set at this time for Tuesday, March 18th, we want to make sure our member schools understand our commitment to their academic success. The KHSAA Archery State Championships are held in conjunction with the National Archery in Schools Program Championships at this present time because of their ability to acquire the needed facilities and necessary targets for such a large event. With that said, the KHSAA Championships will be held on the first day of the two-day KYNASP archery event being held on the 17th and 18th of March.
To alleviate any confusion over the dates and times for this year’s state Archery Championships, please make note that the KHSAA competition will take place on Monday, March 17th. The first flight will begin at 3 p.m. local time and the last KHSAA competitors will shoot at 6 p.m. Any of those KHSAA schools who [...]

There seems to be some confusion among a few of our member schools as to whether they must follow the KHSAA Bylaws if they are not planning on participating in the post season tournament. Regardless if your school chooses to participate or not, you by being a member school, must follow the bylaws that are applicable to the Sport Activity of Archery. These include:
Currently, the following KHSAA Bylaws apply to Archery teams and all other sport activities -
Bylaw 1 (Responsibility for Eligibility);Bylaw 2 (Age, per state law);Bylaw 4 (Enrollment Requirements );Bylaw 5 (Minimum Academic Requirement);Bylaw 12 (Physician’s & Parental Consent Form and Insurance requirement);Bylaw 14 (Other eligibility Requirements And Regulations);Bylaw 15 (Practice of Sportsmanship);Bylaw 16 (Recruitment/Undue Influence);Bylaw 17 (Certification of Eligibility);Bylaw 18 (Submission of Reports);Bylaw 21 (Protests);Bylaw 22 (Contests, Sanctions,Rules, Forfeitures, Faculty To Accompany);Bylaw 23 (Limitation of Season);Bylaw 24 (Summer Activities);Bylaw 25 (Coaching Requirements);Bylaw 27 ( Request for Rulings);Bylaw 27 (Penalties)

New Track/XC Alignment Approved; Football Draft Alignments To Begin; Commissioner Receives Extremely Favorable Evaluation
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: JULY 23, 2013
The Board of Control conducted its July meeting on Monday at the Bank of Kentucky Center on the campus of Northern Kentucky University. Among the various topics addressed was the finalizing of a new alignment for Track and Field/Cross Country for the upcoming 2013-14 season.
Following months of review, a survey of the member schools, and consideration of all of the suggested amendments, the Board of Control adopted a revised alignment for Track & Field/Cross Country to take effect for postseason competition in the fall of 2013. Originally, a draft alignment was developed which would have minimized differences in enrollment between the largest and smallest schools in Class 1A and Class 3A. However, the feedback from the membership was more favorable to the current system [...]

Frequently Asked Questions (as of September, 2014)
This list may be updated as topics or information arises.
Is the KHSAA now sponsoring an Archery championship?
Yes. Competition is held in a single division, with appropriate assignments to regions each year once participation numbers are determined.
With the KHSAA now sponsoring an Archery championship, does that make Archery exactly the same as all other sports and activities within the school?
The management of individual teams within a school is a local decision. School administrators will decide about issues such as compensation, travel allowances and other benefits in compliance with federal, state and locally adopted policies. Nothing about the KHSAA adding this sport activity makes anything “automatic” within a school or school district.
The KHSAA has deliberately drawn a distinction between sports and sport-activities to make sure that the positive aspects of making the activity available isn’t somehow overshadowed by local policy [...]

ARCHERY BECOMES LATEST CHAMPIONSHIP SPORT-ACTIVITY
Kentucky’s elementary, middle and high schools have enjoyed archery competition for nearly a decade. Beginning with the 2012-2013 school year the chance to compete for a KHSAA state championship will become reality.

Archery joins competitive cheer and bass fishing, which are holding their first KHSAA-sanctioned state championships in late January and April, respectively, as the newest sport-activities offered by the Association along with bowling that had its first KHSAA championship in 2012. Kentucky becomes one of the first states nationally to offer archery as a varsity sport-activity. The regional and state competitions will take place in late February and early March.
“We are thrilled to be able to add archery to our growing list of sport-activities,” said Tackett. “It’s [...]
