04/09/18- Four (4) Contest Minimum Removed from Most Sports/Events by Board of Control

Athletic Department Blog Updates

At it’s most recent meeting, the Board of Control addressed concerns from several of the  Commissioner’s Advisory Committees, particularly those representing the individual sports. These concerns surrounded a long-standing Association requirement for a set number of entries into high school competition prior to entering the region. In addition to issues relative to tracking, record keeping and monitoring, the Commissioner and his staff also noted issues relative to the problems this requirement causes at the local level and the inhibiting factor that these requirements might have on multi-sport participation.

Following a review of the discussion in various committees, a review of the rules in most other states, and based on a recommendation from the Commissioner after input from staff, the Board voted to continue to require four interscholastic contests in event-specific competition for those students entering the region meeting in Diving (Swimming and Diving) and Pole Vault (Track and Field). Only competition involving grades 9 through 12 […]

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. Member schools will be able to engage in competition, should they choose, against homeschool units or involve homeschool students enrolled in Kentucky beginning with the 2018-2019 school year.

  • This change DOES NOT allow KHSAA member schools to participate against other schools located in located in Kentucky that have chosen not to join the KHSAA.

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 […]

07/20/17 – Heat and Humidity Reminders

Athletic Department Blog Updates

With temperatures rising across the state, now is a good time to remind all of our school administrators and coaches of the requirements of the Heat Index program. No game, or plan for a game, is worth short-cutting this required procedure that is now nearly fifteen years old. Nothing about the program has changed, but with the turnover in coaches (and administrators) perhaps a few heat index reminders are helpful:

  • Heat index requirements and restrictions apply (and have always applied) to outdoor and indoor sports. In many cases during the summer, indoor practice areas (including gymnasiums) are set to be electronically controlled in terms of temperature and coaches must monitor conditions to ensure compliance.
  • While the gold standard for heat index measurement is the wet bulb globe, the KHSAA has adopted the use of the digital sling psychrometer as the measurement instrument for heat index as the next best available and most cost effective […]

07/18/17 – Cross Country and Track & Field Alignment Approved

Athletic Department Blog Updates

At its regular meeting on July 15, the KHSAA Board of Control gave final approval to the alignment of teams for the 2017-2018 through 2020-2021 period for both Cross Country and Track & Field. The alignment will go into effect immediately, starting with the 2017 fall Cross Country and 2018 spring Track and Field seasons.

The distributed draft received feedback from the membership over the last two months. Following a review of the suggestions from that feedback, the Board approved a change recommended by the Commissioner to revise the qualifying for State Cross Country which will likely result in a few additional teams being added to the state field.

“In several cases, school feedback favored the movement of teams away from optimal geographic locations solely to ensure a particular region didn’t have its number of state qualifying teams reduced. Rather than see team travel increased solely for state qualifying, the Board approved a recommendation to change the […]

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), […]

After hearing proposals from representatives of Bowling Green, Highland Heights, and Lexington, the Board authorized the Commissioner to enter into contract negotiations for the 2017 and 2018 State Football Finals with the University of Kentucky to be played at Kroger Field in Lexington. For the last eight years, the football finals were played at Houchens-LT Smith Stadium on the campus of Western Kentucky University, but WKU’s football success within their conference resulted in the order of games being reshuffled at the last minute during each of the last two years due to the C-USA Championship game.

04/22/16 – Reminder Bylaw 23 Limitation of Seasons

Athletic Department Blog Updates

This is a reminder to all administrators and coaches concerning Bylaw 23, Limitation of Seasons. KHSAA staff members have received several inquiries about permitted activity,  specifically concerning fall sports and practice/tryouts for the fall. The same principle and rule would apply to any “tryout” in any sport or sport-activity that is not held during the period defined by Bylaw 23.

The first official tryout/practice date for 2016 football is July 10.  For the other fall sports/sport-activities (Soccer, Golf, Field Hockey, Volleyball, Cross Country, Competitive Cheer), the first official practice date is July 15. Only after these dates can anything mandatory be required of team members or potential team members. 

Until the day following the last day of school or May 31 (whichever is earliest), coaches are permitted to provide instruction and be involved with team members (provided such is approved by the principal), but continue to be restricted in “competitive” situations with other schools unless they are […]
