11/18/16 – Important Change in Bylaw 22, Out of State Opponents

November 18, 2016 Athletic Department Blog Updates


At the September annual meeting of the membership. the delegates overwhelmingly approved Proposal 10 which removes the requirements in Bylaw 22 that KHSAA member schools only play out of state teams that are members of that state association or eligible to play members of that state association.

Following review by interpretation and application, this provision shall be implemented immediately. Therefore, as of November 18, 2016, each KHSAA member school may choose, solely at its discretion, whether or not to play against out of state teams (regardless of contest location) who are not members of that state association.

KHSAA member schools continue to only be able to play schools located in Kentucky and eligible to be members of the KHSAA, that are in fact members of the KHSAA.
