04/09/18- Implementation of HB290, Play Against Home School Individuals

Archery Blog Updates

During its 2018 Regular Session, both houses of the Kentucky General Assembly approved HB290, and the bill was signed into law by the governor on April 2. See the full text of the bill at http://www.lrc.ky.gov/recorddocuments/bill/18RS/HB290/HCS1.pdf with a digest of the proceedings at http://www.lrc.ky.gov/record/18RS/HB290.htm.

04/09/18- Reminder About Corresponding Date Rollover – 2018-19 through 2021-22 And Changes in Basketball, Tennis and Track & Field Schedules

Archery Blog Updates

This reminder is for all member schools as scheduling decisions are made relative to 2018-2019 and beyond. Athletic Directors and others scheduling contests should pay close attention to the information at https://khsaa.org/general/resources/corresponding-dates/. These charts are invaluable when scheduling year-to-year. It is critical that athletic directors and athletic administrators ensure that this information is passed on to any coach that assists with scheduling in any sport.

Events that are always held the same time each year, or contests played between opponents regularly at the same time each year, should use the corresponding week numbers for reference when choosing dates, not the relative position within the month. In other words, schools should think in terms of the game always being in week 12, 13, 14, etc., rather than the last weekend in December or first weekend in March. Using the corresponding week numbers will help prevent inadvertent scheduling issues.

For example, a quick look at https://khsaa.org/handbook/correspondingdates/federationcalendar.pdf illustrates a […]

Bowling Blog Updates

Earlier this week, the KHSAA released the oil patterns for the upcoming regional bowling tournaments. Those oil patterns can be found in the regional instructions and on the Bowling webpage under the regional pulldowns.

Regional host centers have been notified to use these oil patterns for the regional competition, but the host center can do as they wish with the pattern that has been released during the remainder of the season. 

As always, this is a continually evolving discussion and will be evaluated after this season to see what, if any, changes need to be made for the future.

2015-2016 News Releases

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 12, 2016

The KHSAA Board of Control conducted its final meeting of the 2015-16 academic year over a two-day session at the Association’s headquarters May 10-11.

1/15/13 – Singles Bowlers Welcome and Bowling Regional Information

Athletic Department Blog Updates

This is important information for all schools to read as we have had an incident where a student tried to enter themselves into the postseason bowling tournament without his school’s knowledge.  With the addition of singles only entries, we have seen and continue to see more schools offer bowling.  Participation is a good thing, but with it comes responsibility and rules that need to be met.

If a school has a student that would like to participate as a singles competitor, and the school agrees to sponsor them, then the following should be observed:

A school must designate a coach.  That coach must meet all of the requirements in Bylaw 25 (including sports safety, online rules clinic, etc). If a school is adding a new coach now who needs the rules clinic, contact Angela Passafiume at apassafiume@khsaa.org with the coach’s name once the AD has entered them as a coach on your school’s page.

The KHSAA is excited to announce that we currently have 107 schools participating in high school bowling.  With the growth of bowling also come growing pains.  We hope that this and future communications is helpful to students, coaches and administrators involved in all aspects of the sport activity.

We know that it is very important to schools to be consistent across all KHSAA sport activities. Upon review of the competition rules of both bowling and other KHSAA activities, and due to questions we have received here at the office, we would like to share the following interpretations.  This may be different than what you have done or been told in the past.

First, Bylaw 23, Limitation of Seasons for sport activities is different than in the interpretation that is given to the sports.  For instance, a JV bowling team would like to participate in a tournament on February 1, 2014.  This is after the postseason begins for the […]

09/20/13 – Bowling Changes Regarding Start Date and Singles Entry

Athletic Department Blog Updates

Changes to the 2013-2014 bowling season:

The start to the season, for the purposes of Bylaw 23 (Limitation of Seasons), is now October 1st, which is a change from the past two years October 15th date.  This was brought to the bowling advisory committee and discussed.  We found that this would be very helpful with scheduling in many participating communities.  This is not a mandate to start earlier if the school has no need to do so, but is an option.  

After discussion and Board of Control approval, we now have the option for schools to enter singles bowlers into postseason competition.  The Board feels that this will allow additional participation by students as schools work to build a team for future team participation.  

Just as in swimming and golf, schools are now allowed to enter a singles bowler into the regional singles competition.  At this time there are no minimum regular season […]

05/7/13 – Track Realignment and Bowling Championship Site Selection Highlight May Board of Control Meeting

2012-2013 News Releases

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 7, 2013

The Board of Control conducted its final meeting of the 2012-13 academic year at the KHSAA Offices in Lexington on Tuesday. Among the items discussed, the Board of Control approved a draft for new alignment in Track and Field, selected a new site for the Ebonite/KHSAA Bowling State Championship, and approved a recommendation to elevate Assistant Commissioner Butch Cope to Associate Commissioner.

The new proposed alignment for Track and Field, which was last aligned in 2008-09, places approximately 35% of schools in Class 1A, 40% of schools in Class 2A, and the top 25% of schools in Class 3A based on enrollment figures. The new alignment was created with the aim that larger schools have an inherently higher probability of having multiple athletes in different events and should compete more among themselves (as in football), but also recognizes that many of […]

05/3/13 Bowling Update

Bowling Blog Updates

We would like to share some information with schools as we continue our work on KHSAA bowling rules and interpretations.  

The bowling advisory committee met and had some great input and discussion.  Here are the updates from that meeting and KHSAA staff discussion:

We are looking at alignment as more schools add bowling teams.  

Singles only entries are being considered, if a school is unable to sponsor a team, but can sponsor individuals in the postseason.

Moving the start of the season up to October 1st is not possible at this time without a bylaw proposal change from a school.  Nothing prohibits a school’s bowling team from practicing before the October 1 date, but there would be no catastrophic insurance in place and attendance could not be mandatory.  

Reminders and Clarifications:

The Ebonite/KHSAA State Championship will be on February 13th & 14th for 2014.  The regional window will be January 27th through February 8th.
