Serving Kentucky's Schools and Student Athletes Since 1917

Current Track and Field Alignment

December 11, 2014 Track and Field Working


The Kentucky High School Athletic Association shall sponsor postseason competition in track and field for boys and girls, provided that there is sufficient interest of the membership to participate in said competition. Member schools desiring to participate in KHSAA sponsored postseason competition shall notify the Association office prior to September 1.
The state shall be initially divided into three classes based on a four-year average enrollment, with each class containing seven (7) regions. The Commissioner shall divide the state into geographic sections within three (3) enrollment based classes with the approval of the Board of Control.
All schools shall be placed in the alignment regardless of sponsoring a team at the time of alignment.
In the interim, newly added or deleted programs will be handled on a case by case basis by the Commissioner’s office.
A complete realignment will be done during the 2023-24 school year, with the average grade 9-12 enrollment of the 2022-23 and 2023-24 being used to break into classes, without the option for any school to voluntarily opt-in to a higher class. The 2023-24 enrollment will be used twice, and the 2022-23 enrollmend used once in calculating this average.
