FIRST DAY OF HIGH SCHOOL PRACTICES
It is hard to believe we are already starting the 2018-2019 basketball season. TODAY, November 12, 2018 is the first day of high school practices. Once a student begins practicing with the school team they may no longer play or practice with a non-school team. Players who are still practicing with the football team may not begin basketball practice until their season is completed. (KSHSAA Rule 33-2-1)

PROPERLY MARKED COURT
Administrators and coaches must make sure the court is properly marked before starting the season.

  • In order for coaches to use the coaching box, it must be properly marked. On a regulation court the box is marked by a line 2 inches by 12 inches off the end line and another line measured 28 feet from the end line. If there are not two lines marked, the box is not properly marked. The end line is not the end of the box, the mark off the court at the end line is the end of the box.
  • A division line 2 inches wide, shall divide the court into two equal parts. Shadow-bordered lines are permissible.
  • An "X" 12 inches long and 2 inches wide shall be placed on the floor out of bounds directly in front of the official scorer to help substitutes with the proper location.

ONLINE RULE MEETING FOR COACHES - LAST DAY NOVEMBER 16
The on-line meeting option for coaches and officials will be available until November 16. It goes off at 11 p.m. on November 16. DO NOT wait until the last day or days to complete the meeting. Follow the directions sent in the test packet carefully.

TEST ANSWERS DUE BY MONDAY, NOVEMBER 19
All head coaches (HS/MS) and KSHSAA registered officials are required to take the 2018-19 NFHS Basketball Rules exam. Answers are to be submitted on-line per instructions accompanying the exam and are due NO LATER THAN MONDAY, November 19. The 100 question NFHS test was mailed to all school Athletic Directors on September 13, 2018. Officials receive the test in their packet with the rule books. Each coach/official will answer 50 of the 100 questions.

MIDDLE SCHOOL/JUNIOR HIGH REGULATIONS
With some schools having split seasons for basketball there are frequently questions about when a player becomes a member of the school team. They become a member of the team when they begin practicing with the team. When school practices start players may no longer play or practice on a non-school team. Middle school/Junior High players are limited to 16 games and may play in no more than 6 quarters a night.

MIDDLE SCHOOL NON-SCHOOL TEAM EXCEPTION
In April the KSHSAA Board of Directors voted to provide an exception for 7th and 8th grade players in regards to non-school team participation outside the season of sport. From October 21, 2018 through Sunday, February 24, 2019 there are no restrictions on the number of players that may participate together on a non-school team. While a member of the school team a player may not play or practice with a non-school team. The school coach (head or assistant) may not coach player from their school team during the school year, outside the season of sport. The school team may not extend their season be continuing to play as the school team after the school season is complete. The rule change was made to provide equity between girls and boys participating on non-school teams outside the season of sport.
Beginning February 25, 2019 the restrictions of no more than three players from the same non-school team playing or practicing go back into place. These regulations remain in effect until the Saturday before Memorial Day. [ Continue ]
