VOLLEYBALL PLAYERS -
PERMISSION NEEDED FOR SPECIAL EQUIPMENT, ATTIRE; PADDED HEAD GEAR NOT ALLOWED

The NFHS Rule Book, Rule 4-1 NOTE allows each state association to provide reasonable accommodations to individual participants with disabilities and/or special needs as well as to individuals with extenuating circumstances. The accommodations should not fundamentally alter the sport, heighten risk to others or place the opponent at a disadvantage.

NO LETTER NEEDED - Insulin Pumps, Cochlear Implants & Hearing Aids:
Individual athletes with insulin pumps, cochlear implants or hearing aids are allowed to participate in competition without a specific letter of approval. Each piece of equipment should be securely attached to the person. If there are loose wires, the wires should be taped down to help eliminate any possibility of getting tangled with another player or caught up on volleyball equipment (net, standard or padding).

LETTER NEEDED: - Artificial Limb, Attire associated with religious belief
Volleyball players with an artificial Limb must have a letter or permission from the KSHSAA. When seeking permission, please submit a picture so a determination as to the safety and/or adequate padding of the limb can be made. Attire: Players' uniforms that vary from the traditional attire worn by teammates (i.e., head covering, long pants and shirt, etc.) must have a letter from the KSHSAA.

Schools seeking special permission from the KSHSAA are asked to do so in a timely manner. The coach should present the letter to the officials at the pre-match conference.

POSITION STATEMENT ON PADDED HEADGEAR IN NON-HELMETED SPORTS
The NFHS does not consider soft or padded headgear products as effective equipment in preventing a concussion in non-helmeted sports. The NFHS recommends caution in using soft or padded headgear devices to permit medical clearance of a student athlete, if he or she would otherwise not be medically cleared to participate in sports. Currently, wearing such headgear (helmet, concussion band, etc.) as a condition to play in order to prevent another concussion is not scientifically or medically supported; therefore, a medical waiver for wearing the type of equipment in the case of hastening return to play after a concussion is inappropriate. However, this equipment may be used to cover lacerations or sutures, if these devices are deemed appropriate within the sport playing rules.

The KSHSAA supports the findings of the NFHS Sports Medicine Advisory Committee and WILL NOT allow volleyball players to wear a concussion band or helmet for the purpose of preventing or managing a concussion.

Please disregard the language in the 2014-15 volleyball manual on page 2 and 15 regarding headgear.
