Serving Kentucky's Schools and Student Athletes Since 1917

05/10/24 – Boys’ Volleyball 2025 Season Updates

May 10, 2024 Athletic Department Blog Updates


The Kentucky High School Athletic Association Board of Control, at its May meeting and in preparing to sanction boys’ volleyball for the 2024-25 school year, reviewed a draft of Bylaw 23 (Limitation of Season).  The Board will look to take action and adopt the calendar at its July meeting.  

(NFHS Calendar Playing Weeks)
Practice start–Monday of Week 31;
Contests start–Monday of Week 35;
Match limit–18;
Postseason–Two rounds for 2025;
Postseason start–Monday of Week 45; and
Postseason finish–Saturday/Sunday of Week 46.

Once finalized, information will be communicated to member schools.

As the Board looks to finalize details and begin looking at an alignment, any school currently playing club ball that will be playing KHSAA-sanctioned ball next year needs to have its athletic administrator go to the school login on the KHSAA website and add the team as well as coaching information.  Any school not currently playing but will be fielding a team in the spring of 2025 in KHSAA-sanctioned play should also go in and add the team to its listing as well.

Two elements to assist schools as they prepare to play in the Spring of 2025 deal with the net and ball. 

Schools are reminded that the height of the net is higher (7’11 5/8″) for boys than girls (7′ 4 1/8″).  If you currently have a girls’ team and are going to have a boys’ team, you should make sure your current net system would be compatible to meet height requirements by rule.

Also, the NFHS playing rules require for both boys’ and girls’ volleyball the use of a smooth ball.  There is no “boys” ball.  Other levels and some boys’ club teams use a textured or dimpled ball and this will not be permitted for KHSAA-sanctioned play per NFHS rules.
