Serving Kentucky's Schools and Student Athletes Since 1917

01/22/24 – Postseason Diving Entry Requirements Adjusted Due to Weather

January 22, 2024 Athletic Department Blog Updates


The KHSAA competition rules state that for risk minimization reasons, to be eligible to participate in the KHSAA Regional and State Diving meets, a contestant must have competed in at least four (4) diving meets on a team representing a member school. However, due to several cancellations last weekend as a result of inclement weather, it may be more challenging through no fault of the competitors, to meet that requirement.

As a result, for the 2023-24 season, the four (4) minimum number of Diving meets to enter the postseason is reduced to three (3) meets, all of which must be while representing a member school. Upon entering divers into the Regional Championship, the coach and athletic director of the member school are required to certify that all divers and diving alternates have participated in the required meets.

As plans are made for future years, all coaches and meet managers should be aware of this important risk minimization-based criterion and the need for the four-meet requirement. 

Feel free to contact Sarah Bridenbaugh ( to discuss any specific situations or if you have any questions.
