Continued requirements for coaches and participants

Sportsmanship Course Requirement for Ejected Players – Effective in the 2015-16 school year, any player ejected from a contest at any level of play (grades 7-12), for unsporting conduct or behavior will be required to successfully complete the free “NFHS Sportsmanship Course� online, prior to the KSHSAA and school reinstating his/her eligibility privileges. The school principal or athletic director is responsible to oversee compliance of this requirement. There is no cost for the course which takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. Schools are not required to submit the student’s certificate of completion to the KSHSAA but should retain it on file.

Policy Prohibiting use of Aerial Drones approved for KSHSAA postseason Contest & Events – Given the increasing number of inquiries staff is receiving regarding unmanned aerial drones, it was felt that adoption of a policy for KSHSAA events was appropriate. Accordingly, the Executive Board voted to adopt the following policy prohibiting use of aerial drones at all KSHSAA postseason events, effective immediately.

Heat Illness Prevention Education Requirement - On an annual basis and prior to the beginning of fall sports practices, each KSHSAA member school will provide all coaches/directors of its athletic and activities programs (marching band, cheer & dance teams, etc.) with an educational in-service program on prevention of heat illness and proper hydration of participants. Member schools are strongly encouraged to utilize the free “NFHS Heat Illness Prevention� course or an equivalent program for this purpose. Instruction may take place in a group setting or in an individualized manner.

Soccer Players Required to have NINE days of practice - In May the KSHSAA Board of Directors added language to Rule 38 indicating a soccer player must participate in nine days of practice with the team prior to participating in a contest. The primary reason for the change is concern about heat acclimatization and hydration awareness. Each sport have 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. [ Continue ]
