07/17/18- 2018-2019 Regional Athletic Administrators Meetings of Membership

July 17, 2018 Athletic Department Blog Updates


This reminder is for all member school Superintendents, Principals and Athletic Directors within the KHSAA. 

For the fall of 2018, the KHSAA will again conduct a series of eight regional meetings to help our athletic administrators meet the membership requirement of attending this type of meeting once per year.

Per the membership guidelines, attendance is required of each school but is no longer specific to the principal or principal certification. The Principal or the Designated Representative listed on the KHSAA website will count toward each requirement. Also, this workshop is on the list of those items that satisfy the requirements for the continuing improvement hours for each Athletic Director per Bylaw 25. There is no registration fee.

The content for the segments will include sessions on managing the coach and player data for your school, a review of the KHSAA Bylaws, an update on the operations and projects around the KHSAA and many required reports and functions. There will not be a session related to Title IX as there will be two separate meetings specific to Title IX later in the fall.

Based on overwhelming feedback from the membership, these meetings are being held a few days earlier than in the past to allow for a better educational opportunity. This should also help with the extreme turnover in athletic administrators and get these individuals information earlier in the school year but after time for final appointments to the position(s) as many hires are ongoing.

These sessions will begin at 8 a.m. each day and continue through 12:30 p.m. This schedule continues to allow for the host school to easily accommodate the end of the school day, and the attendees to get on the road and back to their schools.

A final schedule for each day will be sent to all registered attendees. This session would be invaluable for all Principals and ADs as they familiarize or re-familiarize themselves with the Bylaws, tournament rules, online operations and changes. We will be offering assistance with KHSAA rules and will be answering questions concerning paperwork, forms, requirements, etc., to help keep the communication lines between this office and our member schools open and informative.

The first of these workshops will be held on Tuesday, August 14 at the KHSAA offices in Lexington. A complete schedule is listed below. We hope you plan on attending or sending an administrator from your school to participate. Staff will again work hard to make this content-filled meeting worthwhile for all attendees and will post EILA credit to those who attend.

You may complete the registration form for this meeting at You will need to be logged in to the school subdomain (school login system) to complete the form, and one person per form is the limit. It is important that you register in advance so that we may be better prepared for your arrival.

We look forward to seeing you and if you have any questions about the process, please do not hesitate to contact me, or my assistant, Marilyn Mitchell, by email ( or phone (859) 299-5472.
