NEW - KSHSAA 2020 Summer Guidelines

The following are summer guidelines for KSHSAA sponsored activities passed by the KSHSAA Board of Directors on May 1:

When permitted by your community's local health authorities AND your school district administration, while following all group gathering restrictions and social distancing expectations, school employed coaches may begin their summer programs with their prospective student participants no earlier than June 1. As always, participation by a student in the summer program is voluntary. Similarly, schools may choose what, when, and how often programs are available to their students.

The following conditions apply for any summer activity taking place in a school facility and/or under the guidance of a school employee:

1. The first calendar week (minimum five days of conditioning) of a summer activity program for any sport are limited to a maximum of three hours of physical activity per student per day. Physical activity includes any warm-up, stretching, conditioning and weight-lifting activities. Organized competition sanctioned by an outside organization or between students from different schools shall not take place during this time. CONDITIONING MAY INCLUDE DRILLS WITH BALLS & RACQUETS.

2. Beginning the second calendar week (minimum five days of conditioning) of a summer activity program, cumulative physical activity time as defined in #1 should not exceed five hours per student per day. Organized competition sanctioned by an outside organization or between students from different schools shall not take place during this time. CONDITIONING MAY INCLUDE DRILLS WITH BALLS & RACQUETS.

3. Students may begin organized competition under the guidance of their school coaches beginning the third week of a summer activity program.

4. One-week school coach team camps may begin after the ten-day acclimatization period detailed in 1 and 2 above and take place through August 15.

5. Traditional fall school practices begin, and Handbook restrictions resume, on August 17, 2020.

NOTE: Coaches should direct any questions they have regarding these guidelines to their school athletic director.

PLEASE DON'T FORGET: What students do during the summer is on a voluntary basis. Regardless of how many days they show up during the week, they must have a total of 10 days before moving onto competition.

4-1A CLASSIFICATION BREAKDOWN

With the new classification determination in place for tennis, please note that nothing has changed when determining the 40%/60% split for 4-1A schools . As in the past, a school could be 4A in one season and 3A in another season based on the number of school participating. The girls will be using the same classification this fall. It shouldn't be assumed that everything will be grouped like last season. It is dependent on the number of schools.

NEW - CHANGE IN OUTSIDE COMPETITION RULE - KSHSAA Rule 22-1-1

A student who is a member of a school athletic, scholars bowl or debate squad effective Tuesday following Labor Day Monday SCW#7 through Friday preceding Memorial Day may not participate as a member of an outside team or as an independent competitor in the same sport, scholars bowl or debate activity.

THEREFORE: Once a player attends a school practice (Monday SCW#7 = August 17, 2020), they MAY NOT participate in an outside event in their sports through Labor Day.
