2015 Regional Cross Country Meets
Any school interested in hosting a regional cross country meet should contact Francine Martin. The date for the regional Cross Country meets is Saturday, October 25, 2014. This is an ACT testing date so a start time of 2:00 p.m. or later is recommended. Regional assignments will not be available until after classifications are completed (September 22 is count day). If sites can be can be secured regional groupings will be released by October 1, 2014.

Team Uniforms & Equipment
After a couple questions a reminder about undergarments. Garments worn under the shorts above the knees are considered foundation garments. Visible garments worn underneath the uniform bottom extending below the knees shall be unadorned and of the same single, solid color, but not necessarily the same length for team members wearing them. The logo rule applies to undergarments. However, not all team members must wear the visible undergarment. In cross country if two team members want to wear legal full length tights under their shorts and the other five choose not to – that is permissible. The rule just states that if more than one of the team members is wearing them – they have to be the same color – but not all are required to wear the undergarment.
NO jewelry is permitted during the 2014 cross country season.

Triathlons and Team Triathlons
The Executive Board has established policy concerning Triathlons and Team Triathlons based on questions asked about these events.
Triathlon: A single competitor participates in all three phases (running, swimming, and bicycling) of the event.
Team Triathlon: Three competitors each participated in a single phase of the event. It is a three athlete (relay style) event.
Based on the definitions above the Executive Board policy permits a student (grades 7-12) to participate in a triathlon and not be in violation of the KSHSAA Outside Competition Rule 22. The rationale for this policy is based on the triathlon event differing significantly than the school sport in which the athlete is currently in season.
School athletes may also participate in team triathlons during the school season of sport. In order to avoid violation of Rule 22, school athletes must be careful to not participate in the triathlon phase identical to their school sport. They may only compete in a different phase of the event and not violate the Outside Competition Rule. For example, a swimmer may run or bike but not compete in the swim phase of the team triathlon. A Cross Country athlete could bike or swim but not compete in the running phase.
All athletes should be reminded that KSHSAA Amateur Rule 21 and Awards Rule 20 are in effect as it relates to their desire to protect their interscholastic eligibility.

Athletes should also inform their school coach of their intent to participate in these events as it may effect the training program. << continue >>
