Cross Country Runners Required to have NINE days of practice
Cross Country Runners Required to have NINE days of practice In May the KSHSAA Board of Directors added language to Rule 34 indicating a cross country runner must participate in nine days of practice with the team prior to participating in a meet. The primary reason for the change is concern about heat acclimatization and hydration awareness. Each sport has different conditioning and practice needs unique to that sport. Students who are dual participation athletes must work with coaches to ensure they attend 9 practices in both sports. It is permissible for a coach to provide a workout for a student to complete prior to or after the other team practice. Coaches are responsible for documenting these practices.

High School Cross Country Coaches Must Complete Exam
This year all high school cross country coaches must complete a 50 question exam. Questions were mailed to athletic directors in July and are included as the last two pages of the announcement sheet. Directions on how to submit answers to the test were also mailed with the Announcement Sheet.

Clarification on gloves and caps
As in previous years in the event of inclement weather, the games committee may permit stocking caps and gloves to be worn. If worn all team members must have the same color of gloves. If worn all team members must have the same color of stocking caps. Not all members must wear them, but if they do they must be the same color. Visors and baseball style hats are not permitted.<< continue >>
