GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS FOR ALL ACTIVITIES
ACTIVITY SPECIFIC CONSIDERATIONS (GIRLS SOCCER)

SOCCER PLAYERS REQUIRED TO HAVE NINE (9) DAYS OF PRACTICE
KSHSAA Rule 38 states a soccer player must participate in nine days of practice with the team prior to participating in a contest. The primary reason for this rule is concern about heat acclimatization and hydration awareness. Each sport has different conditioning and practice needs unique to that sport. Coaches are responsible for documenting these practices. (Rule 38.1.2.a)

For spring girls soccer season, the KSHSAA Executive Board put in the following EXCEPTION: Girls participating in the state basketball tournament may participate with fewer than nine days of practice.

COACHES AND OFFICIALS – RULES EXAM & RULES MEETING REQUIREMENTS
The majority of coaches and officials completed both requirements prior to the boys' season this past fall.

ALL senior high varsity girls head coaches as well as ALL girls registered soccer officials must complete Soccer Exam, Part I. Coaches who do not receive a score of 90% or better must take a KSHSAA Exam 2. If they do not score 90% or better on the KSHSAA Exam 2, their school’s name will be published in the Activities Journal. Any school whose girls head coach does not complete the online rules exam by March 16 will be assessed a fine of $100. Those officials that do not score a 90% or better on the rules exam will not be eligible to officiate post-season matches.

It is also mandatory that ALL girls head coaches and officials complete an online rules meeting by March 16. The penalty for not completing the rules meeting requirement by the due date will result in a $100 fine for coaches, and new officials are not allowed to officiate while returning officials are put on probation.
