As we have detailed in the regional meetings, the Board of Control desires additional feedback and clarification from schools on a prior triennial survey. This survey deals with LACROSSE and one response will be accepted per school. Duplicate responses will be deleted and the response from the Principal will take precedence over the Athletic Director in the event of duplication. It is an individual school administrator determination if other individuals are consulted prior to response. The deadline for submission is TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2019.

The survey is located at

The KHSAA relies heavily on its triennial survey to determine the interest of its membership in adding a new sport or sport-activity. However, there are times in the interim when the Board of Control and the Commissioner receive enough interest in a particular sport or sport-activity that additional research is need.

The Board has asked the Commissioner to poll the schools about the membership interest in Lacrosse. The next triennial survey concerning all sports is scheduled for 2020-2021, however, there has been considerable interest expressed in earlier polling specific to Lacrosse from KHSAA school administrators as well as those related to other regulatory and legislative groups. Therefore the Board of Control desires input from your school.

Please complete this survey prior to the close of business on Tuesday, September 17, 2019. Results will be presented to the Board of Control at its next meeting.

Thank you for sharing your input. Each school is asked to share a singular opinion. Per bylaw 1, each school is given one vote, via the Principal or Designated Representative. This change is being considered for future years and based on the Board’s decisions, an implementation timeline would be developed.

Thank you. Please contact the Commissioner’s office if you have any questions.
