02/23/22 - Baseball Rules Clinic for Coaches & Officials Now Available

The mandatory online KHSAA Rules Clinic for the sport of Baseball is now available today, Feb. 23.  The clinic is required of all officials as well as all coaches (varsity, junior varsity, and freshman) whether or not the coach receives pay.

For member schools, the clinics are located on the School Log-in Page. To access the clinic, go to https://schools.khsaa.org/ and — under the section entitled Rules Clinics — click on the link that says “View Online Rules Clinics“.

For officials, login to the officials’ subdomain at https://officials.khsaa.org/.

The presentation can be viewed on most PC or Mac desktops and laptops, along with many HTML5 enabled mobile devices and tablets (to view system requirements click on the Resources tab from within the clinic once the clinic has started).

You will be required to advance each slide. Once you advance to the last slide of the presentation, you will be returned to the KHSAA website and will receive credit for the clinic (there are no “certificates” for completed online rules clinics). If the presentation is not completed, and you are not taken back to the KHSAA website at the end, you will not receive credit.

You must complete the clinic in one setting (veterans will remember there was no intermission during the in-person meetings either). Individuals starting and not completing will have the start of the clinic erased and will have to begin at the start when resuming.

Each person that views the clinic must be logged into their account in order to get credit. If taken using anyone else’s e-mail address other than your own (including your administrator’s), you will have to re-take the clinic.

If you have trouble logging into the system, contact the KHSAA office.
