11/14/23 – Basketball Roster/Schedule Entry/Prime Date Reminder

November 14, 2023 Athletic Department Blog Updates


This reminder to Athletic Directors and Basketball Coaches to have your rosters and schedules entered through the school login page of the KHSAA website.

With regard to girls’ schedules, schools are reminded of the KHSAA Prime Date Board Policy that was revised significantly for the 2023-2024 school year as detailed in the rules clinic and communication with member schools.

To meet the Association requirements, at least 40% percent of your games are required to be played on a prime date. This can be accomplished in one of two methods.

  • Method 1 – Play at least forty (40) percent of its girls’ home basketball games on a prime  date, defined as Friday night, Saturday or Sunday, wherein tournaments shall only count  as one game played toward this requirement; or
  • Method 2 – Play at least forty (40) percent of its girls’ basketball schedule (all games) on a prime date, defined as Friday night, Saturday, Sunday, or any day on Monday through Thursday which is part of a doubleheader where both the boys’ and girls’ varsity teams play.

Schedules are reviewed for compliance on Nov. 27, Jan. 15, and at the conclusion of the season, and status reports are submitted to the Board of Control. You can always monitor to see your current compliance status through the school login page at

Please reach out to Associate Commissioner Butch Cope for assistance at
