The mandatory Online KHSAA Rules Clinic for the sport of Football is now available following a minimal delay for system maintenance. The clinic is required of all officials as well as all coaches, varsity, junior varsity and freshman, and whether or not the coach receives pay.

Because of the nature of this year’s rules changes, coaches you are placing your team at a competitive disadvantage if you delay/put off/procrastinate the completion of this clinic. Officials, your failure to stay on top of these key changes will likely lead to administrative errors. It is an unusual year with minimal rules changes, but those that were made are not only safety-related, but impact game administration.

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

For officials, login to the officials’ subdomain at https://officials.khsaa.org/

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.

You must complete the clinic at one setting (veterans will remember there was no intermission during the in-person meetings either). Individuals starting and not completing will have the start of the clinic erased and will have to begin at the start when resuming.

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

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