Welcome back for the 2014-2015 School Year!

We hope you have a great, if not far too short, summer and are ready to get going for 2014-2015. There are a great many changes for 2014-15. In many cases, we will be sending those to you in short snippets instead of one long email, so that you can forward as necessary. As always our staff remains available to assist you in any way they can.

Before any work begins on rosters for the 2014-15 year, a person in the school with Athletic Director level access  must initialize rosters as detailed below before rosters can be updated and subsequently, rosters and statistics entered. Keep in mind that the online roster data forms the basis of your schools in-season roster, as well as both your school’s Title IX report and annual participation lists that are due in April. Many of these pieces will be repeated as individual emails over the coming days as a reminder.

Eligibility and Roster Requirement
No student is eligible to participate in a contest or scrimmage IN ANY SPORT if they are not currently listed on the school team roster online. No other paper or electronic form may substitute. Beginning with 2014-2015, the roster requirement will be enforced with administrative penalties including fines and other actions within the constraints of Bylaw 27.

Video Summary of Startup Procedure and Changes

  • Rob Catron, the IT Director at the KHSAA, has recorded a summary of the changes to the online system for this year, and initialization instructions. You can view this video at http://youtu.be/YpmPsPSgOlg and there is a link on the schools.khsaa.org login page.
