08/29/22 – Competitive Cheer Rules Clinic Now Available

August 29, 2022 Cheer Blog Updates


The mandatory online KHSAA Rules Clinic for the sport-activity of Competitive Cheer is available beginning today, August 29. The clinic is required of all coaches (varsity, junior varsity, and freshman) and whether or not the coach receives pay.

For member schools, the clinics are located on the School Log-in Page. To access the clinic, go to and — under the section entitled Rules Clinics — click on the link that says “View Online Rules Clinics“.

  • August 29 to October 6– the Competitive Cheer Clinic will be online only and may be viewed at no charge during this period.
  • October 7 to October 21 – the Competitive Cheer Clinic will be online only and may be viewed for the makeup fee ($100) during this period.
  • October 22 to November 5 – the Competitive Cheer Clinic will be online only and may be viewed for the makeup fee ($200) per the Bylaw 27 schedule during this period.
  • After this time, postseason penalties per Bylaw 27 will apply.

The presentation can be viewed on most PC or Mac desktops and laptops, along with many HTML5-enabled mobile devices and tablets.

You will be required to advance each slide. Once you advance to the last slide of the presentation, you will be returned to the KHSAA website and will receive credit for the clinic (there are no “certificates” for completed online rules clinics). If the presentation is not completed, and you are not taken back to the KHSAA website at the end, you will not receive credit.

Each person that views the clinic must be logged into their account in order to get credit. If taken using anyone else’s email address other than your own (including your administrator’s), you will have to re-take the clinic.

New for 2022-2023 you are able to start and resume the clinic at any point should you not be able to watch the clinic in one session. Likewise, there is no time limit to complete the clinic in once started. The proper way to close the presentation and resume it later is to either simply close the browser tab or Click on the “Exit Module” link in the upper left of the player window. To resume, simply logged back into your KHSAA account and click on the clinic link again and when it resumes, you have the option to resume where you left off – to do so, click on “Yes”.

If you have trouble logging into the system, contact the KHSAA office.
