04/22/19 – Six Rules Changes Approved in High School Swimming, Diving

Athletic Department Blog Updates

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (April 22, 2019) — Effective with the 2019-20 high school season, a legal finish now requires the competitor to contact either the touchpad or the finish end coinciding with the individual stroke of the race. With this change, swimmers can legally complete a race by touching the finish end (end wall), regardless of whether the touchpad is activated.

This rules revision, which affects the finish of all strokes used in swimming, was one of two swimming and four diving changes recommended by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Swimming and Diving Rules Committee at its March 24-26 meeting in Indianapolis. All recommendations were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.

Rule 8-1-7 now will require swimmers to contact the finish end in the manner prescribed by the individual strokes. Descriptions of the backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and freestyle finishes in Rule 8-2 state that a legal finish requires contact with […]

11/14/18 – Board of Control Adjusts 2019 Fall Seasons, Sets State Championship Sites

2018-2019 News Releases

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Nov. 14, 2018

During the course of its meeting at the KHSAA Offices on Wednesday, the Board of Control made adjustments to the 2019 fall sports seasons and finalized sites for this year’s State Baseball and Swimming & Diving Championships.

For the last several years prior to 2018, the soccer, volleyball and cross country seasons all culminated on the same weekend. With volleyball moving a week earlier in 2018 to avoid a conflict in Louisville with the Breeders’ Cup, the Association had the opportunity to reevaluate the structure of its seasons while also looking to alleviate concerns with competitions on ACT test dates.

With those factors in mind, the Board approved a recommendation to set the start of the 2019 Soccer regular season to begin in NFHS Week 6 (8/11-8/17) and end with the final regular season week in NFHS Week 13 (9/29-10/5). […]

09/25/18 – Board of Control Addresses Future Championship Formats and Schedules in Several Sports

2018-2019 News Releases

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 25, 2018

The Board of Control conducted its first meeting of the 2018-19 academic year on Thursday, September 20 at the Association offices. Much of the day’s agenda involved ongoing discussion of the future format of several KHSAA championships. Among the action taken, the Board gave tentative approval to transitioning the State Softball and Baseball Tournaments to 8-team single elimination events, with the key provision of re-establishing semi-state play, preferably at non-high school sites. This builds upon last year’s decision to move away from the double-elimination format in Softball, in the interest of player safety and gender participation experience equity.

The tentative plan would transition these championships to 8-team events with first round, semi-state games, rotated in geographic pods and played at a neutral site. The Commissioner and staff were directed to develop site criteria for semi-state games for review at October’s Board meeting, with the goal to […]

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.

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 […]

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 12, 2018

During the course of its regularly scheduled meeting at the KHSAA offices on Thursday, the Board of Control approved a proposal from staff to create a new championship opportunity for girls in the sport-activity of Archery.

2/24/16 – Swimming and Diving Starting Block wedges

Swimming Blog Updates

The KHSAA administered a survey to participating member school designated representatives (normally the school AD) regarding the use of starting block wedges at the state swimming and diving meet for 2016. The purpose of this survey was to receive feedback from schools participating in the state meet to determine whether or not their athletes had had the opportunity to utilize these wedges during the season and whether or not they would be in favor of allowing their use at the state meet.

Only 25 of the schools with a swimming program had utilized these wedges in the past with only 34 total schools in favor of utilizing them at the state meet. Especially critical in the information gathering process was the fact that several coaches expressed concern about their athletes lack of familiarity with the blocks and the potential competitive disadvantage their athletes would be placed in by trying to familiarize themselves with these wedges.

The 2016 KHSAA Swimming and Diving State meet is currently set to proceed on schedule. However, if due to the severe weather on Thursday there is a need to delay or adjust the schedule, changes will be posted online on the KHSAA website and via the @khsaa and @khsaaevents twitter accounts.

Based on the actual weather that occurs, we will decide between leaving the meet on schedule or one of several contingency plans that could include diving preliminaries later into Thursday or even after the swimming sessions on Friday, or several other alternatives. Nothing will be determined until we actually determine accurate weather conditions.

We understand the need for each local school and school district to make safety the number one priority in regards to transporting their student-athletes and that there is the remote possibility that some will choose not to travel even if the meet continues as scheduled.

01/28/16 – Board of Control Addresses Football Alignment, Bracketing; Baseball Pitch Count; Swimming and Diving State Qualifiers

2015-2016 News Releases

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 28, 2016

The Board of Control addressed a lengthy agenda during its regularly scheduled meeting at the KHSAA Offices on Thursday, approving a slight “midcourse” adjustment to the football alignment as required by the competition rules and future football playoff bracket formats, finalizing a baseball pitch count, and settling on the number of regional qualifiers for the state swimming and diving meet for 2016.

Per the football competition rules, a “midcourse” adjustment is to be made in the second year of a four-year alignment. In order to be considered for adjustment, the four-year average enrollment (including 2015-16 data) would have to be within the boundaries of another class, and the school shall have had at least a 10 percent change in four-year average enrollment during the two-year period.

Due to the expansion of regions from five to nine for the 2015-2016 Swimming and Diving season, plans were made for the Region 8 Swim Meet to be held at the Falling Springs Arts and Recreation Center in Versailles to decrease the amount of travel for schools in this region.

Several schools in this region had expressed a strong interest in returning to the Stivers Wellness and Aquatic Center in Barbourville, KY for the swimming portion of the Region 8 meet. The KHSAA sent a survey to the Designated Representatives from each school in this region asking them to consult their head coaches in regards to which facility they wanted to serve as the host for the swimming portion of the Region 8 meet.

The overwhelming majority of administrators (19-4) voted for the swimming portion of the Region 8 meet to return to the Stivers Aquatic and Wellness Center. As a result, the swimming portion of the Region […]

01/15/16 – Number of State Qualifiers Increased for Swimmers at State Meet

Swimming Blog Updates

When the realignment of swimming schools was revised last summer, one of the discussion points was about state qualifiers. At that time, with 9 regions, the Board of Control approved bringing two automatic qualifiers from each region, and an additional 14 statewide at-large qualifiers for a competition field of 32 in each event. 

Since the adoption of the alignment, staff and  tournament management has worked diligently with the time schedule to try and address issues where the Board wanted to see if it was possible to not reduce the number of at-large qualifiers from prior years (when 22 at-large made the field plus two automatic from each region).

At this point, the schedule has been adjusted to the point that the Swimming and Diving Advisory Committee recommended, and the Board of Control has approved, bringing in the 18 automatic qualifiers (two per region) and 22 at large for each swimming event. Therefore, the number of state qualifiers in […]

Swimming Blog Updates

In order to continue to address the concerns of the University Fire Marshal for the 2015 Swimming and Diving State Championships, teams with ten or more swimmers (boys and girls combined) will be allowed to have three coaches on the deck of the pool.

2/20/15 – Taping For All-American Dive Consideration

Swimming Blog Updates

Due to the decrease in the amount of deck space where diving is taped for All-American consideration, credentials will be required for those wishing to be on deck to videotape the diving sessions. Anyone wishing to access the deck during these sessions will be required to go to the team check-in/media check-in entrance each day to request their credentials. There will be a different color credential for each day and this credential will allow these individuals on deck only during the diving sessions of the meet. Coaches who are aware of anyone that plans on videotaping the diving sessions should share this information with those individuals. Filming this year will occur on the opposite side of the deck next to the judges. Due to limited space there will be a waiting area on deck and then an area to film which you will access when your athlete is ready to dive.

Also, as a reminder […]

    08/16/14 – Reminder about Carryover Ejections from 2013-2014

    Athletic Department Blog Updates

    In several unfortunate situations each year, coaches or athletes with eligibility remaining are ejected near the end of the season, or near the end of the season for violations of Bylaw 15, Sportsmanships. Please note that when that happens, the penalty carries to the next year if the student-athlete remains enrolled, and to the new school if the coach changes jobs/schools. 

    Please note all rules related to player/coach ejections, including the provisions for varsity and non-varsity ejections, are listed at http://khsaa.org/dq-policy-on-reinstatement-of-disqualified-apolicy-on-reinstatement-of-disqualified-athletes-coaches/, and a complete list from 2013-2014 is listed on the KHSAA website at http://khsaa.org/dq_list_public/. You will need to review this listing to ensure that you properly require athletes and coaches to miss the required contests if in fact they were ejected. 

    Also note that being ineligible for scrimmages (sitting out) does NOT satisfy any penalty, such must be served at the varsity contest level.
