08/14/15 – Association to Sponsor Intense Voluntary Training For Newer Athletic Administrators

August 14, 2015 Athletic Department Blog Updates


The KHSAA will conduct a training session for newer Athletic Directors on Wednesday, September 9, the day prior to the KHSAA Annual Meeting, from 1:00 to 4:45. The New Athletic Directors Institute will be held in Lexington at the KHSAA offices. This session will focus on the KHSAA Constitution, Bylaws and Tournament rules, with specific focus on the eligibility requirements, game contracts and other “traps” that young ADs or athletic administrators fall into due strictly to a lack of knowledge.

Staff will be available to help with data system needs, etc., but that is not the primary focus and won’t be an in-depth session or segment. This is intended to break down the Bylaws, explain fully rules and procedures, and help the new ADs during these first early weeks of the school year. We will include those key legal duties and risk management points that are needed, as well as very specific coverage of the eligibility rules and a general chance to interact with staff and athletic leadership from throughout the state.

There are no special requirements to attend, other than simply taking the initiative to sign up. There is no requirement for experience to attend, minimum or maximum, but much of the material may be redundant for long time veterans. This will be designed for those ADs in their first five years. There is no charge. The session will be held at the KHSAA offices in Lexington. To sign-up, go to

The week of August 17, information will be sent to the member schools concerning available housing, etc. for tose desiring to stay overnight and attend the annual meeting the next day. Thanks in advance for your efforts.
