01/25/17- Pre Tournament Reminder for Wrestling – Skin Checks

Wrestling Blog Updates

It has been reported to the office that some schools are confused as to who would have the final say (in an event with multiple physicians present) as to whether a wrestler may or may not participate due to a skin condition. You are reminded that the regional managers have been directed to designate an on-site meet appropriate health-care professional to make that determination and to report that designation to this office. The person designated by the regional manager will have the sole, final and unappealable decision-making authority in these cases, by rule.

It should also be noted that UK Sports Medicine will once again provide Doctors at the State Championships to help with that process. These doctors as designated by the KHSAA staff will have the sole, final and unappealable decision-making authority in these cases, by rule.

In case needed, please familiarize yourself with NFHS Wrestling Rules 4-2-3, 4-2-4 and 4-2-5 which states:

12/12/16 – Wrestling Rule Reminders

Wrestling Blog Updates

We have begun the season and several questions have been submitted to the office which we feel must be addressed as a reminder to all. 

Question…Can I just write the wrestler in for an event without a weigh-in sheet from trackwrestling?

NO. A coach who fails to provide this document is not only in violation of our rules, but the coaches that allow another school to do this put both schools in violation of the rules for entering an ineligible wrestler.

h) The Head Coach of each team shall provide, for each competition weigh-in, a match weigh-in form produced by the NWCA online system showing the lowest applicable weight for each competing wrestler on the actual date of the competition.
i) Local event managers should have in place an option to produce such listing in the event that the competing coach does not produce this report at weigh-ins.
j) Repeated failure to produce these required […]

11/21/16 – Wrestling Regular Season Notes

Wrestling Blog Updates

Recently, a few questions have been submitted in regards to the use of the alternate uniform:

What happens when your kids cross the border and wrestle against out-of-state teams? Would they go back to the traditional singlets? What occurs when outsiders come into the Commonwealth?

Should teams travel out-of-state for competition, it is advised that coaches check and see if that state will allow the alternate uniforms to be used. The tournament organizer should be able to verify with the officials before our teams leave town. For matches in state, KHSAA Bylaws dictate that member schools must follow KHSAA rules, so the use of the alternate uniform would definitely be permitted. But, our schools should be cautioned to communicate with those out-of-state hosts in advance.

What does the alternate uniform look like?

We have  posted a PDF with photos to help with the interpretation of the “Alternate Uniform”. Please visit this link on our website for […]

11/03/16 – Wrestling will Experiment with New Rule

Wrestling Blog Updates

The Wrestling Advisory Committee met recently to discuss several ideas on how to increase participation numbers in Wrestling. One area the committee felt strongly about was the possibility to add an alternative uniform to the traditional singlet. Many felt the tradition singlet might be an inhibitor for some students and their desire to participate.

With this direction from the committee, the Commissioner recently requested permission from the NFHS Rules Review Committee to experiment with Rule 4-1, Wrestlers’ Uniform. The NFHS Wrestling rules committee has been discussing the addition of an alternate uniform for possible inclusion in the rule book for 2017-2018.

The KHSAA asked to be the state association to beta test this new concept and report our finds back to the Rules committee after the season. The rule that we will adopt for experimentation reads:

4-1-1
Art. 1…Wrestlers shall wear
a. Remains the same;
b. Remains the same;
c. A singlet with the […]

02/23/15 – Bylaw 23 Waivers for Wrestling

Wrestling Blog Updates

With the necessary postponement of the KHSAA Wrestling State Championships to March 10-11, 2015, questions have arisen as to allowances for teams to continue practice and preparation for the state tournament. Several factors are involved including weight maintenance (although athletes should be wrestling at or near natural weight), and how to keep a high level of  competitiveness over the course of the next two weeks. After much discussion the following waivers have been granted by the Commissioner to accommodate the schedule change, for 2015 only!

02/18/15 – State Wrestling Tournament Postponed

2014-2015 News Releases

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 18, 2015

In the interest of the safety and welfare of our competitors, coaches, workers and officials, and to ensure that participation experience for the student-athletes is optimal, the KHSAA has postponed the State Wrestling Championships, originally scheduled for February 19-21, until March 9-11.

“KHSAA State events are large-scale undertakings, and with the expansion of the State Tournament several years ago, we are very limited in options for holding the event,” said Commissioner Julian Tackett. “We absolutely have to be able to put down at least eight mats to get the tournament completed in two days, and that in and of itself limits our options. We are thankful our hosting partners at the Alltech Arena on the grounds of the Kentucky Horse Park were able to work out new dates. We tried to work cooperatively with another event that is scheduled for Sunday and rearrange schedules, but that group was unwilling […]

11/21/2014-Required Wrestling Mat Area

Wrestling Blog Updates

As a part of the Wrestling rules clinic each year, the NFHS lists certain rules that have not changed but should be reviewed and made a “Point of Emphasis” (POE). One such POE this year has resulted in some dialogue among our member school representatives regarding the requirements for our member schools.
Required Safety Mat Area Surrounding Wrestling Mats During Competition (NFHS Rule 2-1-2) states, “The wrestling area of the mat shall be a circular area a minimum of 28 feet in diameter. Surrounding and secured to the wrestling area of the mat shall be a safety mat area of approximately 5 feet wide.”
This means there shall be approximately 5 feet of safety mat area from the out of bounds circle to the nearest obstacle of any kind, i.e., gym floor, tables, chairs, clocks, etc.
The wording “approximately 5 feet” is used because as mats age they may shrink, which could minimally […]

Athletic Department Blog Updates

In several unfortunate situations each year, coaches or athletes with eligibility remaining are ejected near the end of the season, or near the end of the season for violations of Bylaw 15, Sportsmanships. Please note that when that happens, the penalty carries to the next year if the student-athlete remains enrolled, and to the new school if the coach changes jobs/schools. 

Please note all rules related to player/coach ejections, including the provisions for varsity and non-varsity ejections, are listed at http://khsaa.org/dq-policy-on-reinstatement-of-disqualified-apolicy-on-reinstatement-of-disqualified-athletes-coaches/, and a complete list from 2013-2014 is listed on the KHSAA website at http://khsaa.org/dq_list_public/.
