04/09/18 – Bowling Dead Period Reminders

Bowling Blog Updates

It is important to remind all coaches about sport-activities (bowling, competitive cheer, archery, bass fishing) during the dead period. This includes both middle and high school students per 702 KAR 7:065.

Any participation by student-athletes during the dead period would be a violation of Bylaw 24 if the school were to be involved in any way, including coaching, transportation, funding, providing uniforms or all other specifics mentioned in Bylaw 23, 24 or 25. Though participation itself by a student-athlete may not necessarily be a violation of KHSAA rules, the dates from June 25 – July 9, preclude any Kentucky school representative from participating in an event during ANY PART of the dead period including transportation or any part of the event if the event extends into the dead period. For a complete understanding of restrictions, provisions, and interpretations related to this bylaw, see the link at http://khsaa.org/handbook/bylaws/20172018/bylaw24.pdf

The Dead Period was developed more than twenty years ago […]

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. With the signing by the governor, the bill will go into effect on July 1, 2018, for KHSAA member schools.

The bill will necessitate an amendment to KHSAA Bylaw 22, Sec. 1 (listed at https://khsaa.org/handbook/bylaws/20172018/bylaw22.pdf) and this amendment will be done through the normal regulatory approval process this spring.

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 […]

01/12/18 – Clarification on Regional Oil Patterns

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. 

After discussion with the Bowling Advisory committee, the KHSAA wanted to address and clarify the usage of the 2018 patterns prior to the tournament. For 2018, there is no explicit or implied restriction on the use of oil patterns during the season. 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.

If you have questions, please contact Sarah Bridenbaugh (sbridenbaugh@khsaa.org).

07/18/17 – Board of Control Mandates Face Protection in Softball

2017-2018 News Releases

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 18, 2017

The Board of Control conducted its first organizational meeting of the 2017-18 academic year July 14-15 at the Hotel Covington in Northern Kentucky. Over the course of its two-day meeting, the Board took a progressive step in the area of student-athlete safety by approving a recommendation from staff to mandate the use of face protection in softball for pitchers, first basemen and third basemen. The Board’s action, which follows the recommended use of protective headgear in July of 2014, makes Kentucky the first state to require face protection in high school softball, and continues the KHSAA’s willingness to be at the forefront in regards to player safety, as the Association implemented a pitch count in baseball one year before it was approved at the national level.

The KHSAA submitted a proposal to amend the NFHS playing rules at the 2017 NFHS Summer Meeting (June 28-July 2), […]

08/26/15 – Board of Control Reviews Classification and Triennial Survey Results; Approves Several Championship Sites

2015-2016 News Releases

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 26, 2015

The KHSAA Board of Control conducted its first meeting of the 2015-16 school year on Monday at the Owensboro Convention Center. Among the many agenda items discussed, the Board executed a lengthy review of its current classification and alignment system for postseason play, and the ramifications of possible expansion of classification to other team sports. This review was requested by the Board after receiving a proposal concerning the classification of baseball and the format of all rounds of the postseason baseball tournament from Lawrence County High School during the 2014-15 school year. Following the receipt of the requested changes from Lawrence County, the Board requested information for a broader review of the issues in classification in the other team sports, not simply a review of baseball.
