Track and Field Blog Updates

As we draw near the postseason for Track & Field, the KHSAA wanted to remind coaches and officials about Unified Events and Unified rosters.

Two of these events are new and we wanted to clarify all events for those involved. 

Unified Track must include a partner athlete and a special athlete for each event. For definitions of those participants, please read our Interactive Explanatory Presentation and our Unified FAQs document. The following is information on how each event will be conducted:

    • Partner must race 50m to the athlete, exchange the baton […]

01/20/17 – Reminders- Pole Vault Requirements for Track Coaches

Track and Field Blog Updates

As the track season begins, we wanted to remind Athletic Directors, coaches and student-athletes about the additional requirements for the Pole Vault event. It is necessary in order to attempt to minimize risk, that coaches have additional training for the pole vault prior to athletes being able to enter competition.

Coaches entering vaulters have long been required to complete an online education course specific to pole vault.

For 2017, there are two options for coaches to complete, and both count equally toward the requirement.

01/11/17 – Reminders about Participation in Indoor Track Meets

Track and Field Blog Updates

For the past several years, groups and institutions like the University of Kentucky have sponsored indoor track meets. At UK for example, one meet has historically been conducted for Kentucky high schools in January and a second meet in February was an open meet with non-member teams from out-of-state and a variety of athletes and teams. Because of the way that the February meet was structured, there were previously specific limitations on KHSAA school-based participation, especially against non-member teams.

Because of recent bylaw changes in regulations, the only teams that are prohibited from competing against KHSAA member schools are schools or groups of athletes located in Kentucky who are eligible to join the KHSAA, but have decided not to do so at this time. There are no longer restrictions against out-of-state non-member schools or competition against out-of-state entities of other structures, as that is a local school decision.

It is important to note that indoor track and field is not […]

03/24/16 – Updated Pole Vault Coaching Requirements

Track and Field Blog Updates

The Track & Field Advisory committee met on Monday, February 8, 2016 at the KHSAA office in Lexington. During the course of its meeting, the committee recommended approval of revised pole vault coaching requirements for ALL high school track and field coaches. 

The first recommended change was to allow for an additional course to be used for pole vault coach certification. In addition to the fee-based course at pvscb.com, coaches with pole vaulters are also allowed to use the free NFHS Coaching Pole Vault Elective Course through NFHSLearn.com. This course can be found by following the link at http://nfhslearn.com/courses/40000/coaching-pole-vault. The recommendation has been implemented for 2016 due to the health and safety of the students and the cost savings to the member schools.

As a second recommended change, for 2016, it is highly recommended that student-athletes competing in pole vault also complete the course to ensure safety and proper awareness of the sport. Completion […]

For the second year, the KHSAA and Special Olympics Kentucky will once partner to offer Unified Track and Field events at the 2016 KHSAA State Track and Field Meet.

11/16/15 – State Track & Field Dates

Track and Field Blog Updates

We have had a few inquiries about the dates for postseason track. Due to the availability of the University of Kentucky’s Outdoor Track & Field Complex, the 2016 KHSAA State Meet will be held May 27-28, as it has been listed on the calendar since the start of the year. Kentucky’s track facility will be unavailable the previous weekend, as the UK baseball team will be hosting Missouri.

Due to this scheduling conflict, the Board of Control approved a two-week period for regionals to be held due to a change in the NFHS calendar and a scheduling conflict with the University of Kentucky. The two-week period seemed to be beneficial to schools for many reasons, but mostly the benefit of scheduling around May school event conflicts was expressed. It also allowed schools to be more confident with rescheduling due to weather related issues.
