|Present Voluntary Conditioning/Skills Sessions without
formal practice permitted, has been extended until
August 3rd By KHSAA Board of Control
These are my PERSONAL takaways from listening to the majority of the business and
Board of Control Meeting earlier on Friday:
1. Golf will be played "Business as usual" beginning on July 31st with 2 spectators
per player permitted. The practice delay (described below) likely will affect the first
competition dates for cross country, field hockey, football, soccer and volleyball, all of
which had been scheduled to begin in August. The first high school football games are
presently scheduled for Aug. 21.
2. The current VOLUNTARY conditioning/skills workouts period for the remainder of
the fall sports has been extended until August 2nd with no changes, when it will again
be reviewed. KHSAA commissioner Julian Tackett said “it does not appear wise to
take any steps” toward allowing more activity than has been allowed since June 29
because of the COVID-19 pandemic. High schools are currently allowed to have non-
contact practices in groups of 50 people or less. The KHSAA also voted Friday to limit
athletes to six hours of practice per week through Aug. 2nd.
A plan developed by the KHSAA for the startup of football tryouts, and practice will
be devised and revealed prior to August 3rd. In effect, the best case scenario is that
normal July 15 beginning or formal practice is now August 2nd. It could also again be
extended. At present the state mandate has no ending day or review date All
restrictions imposed through June 29th have been extended indefinitely. Tackett said
the KHSAA Board of Control could meet again in late July – perhaps July 28 - to
consider recommendations for August and beyond. Tackett noted some fall sports
could be delayed longer than others, based on recommendations from the governor’s
office and the Department of Health.
3. Pretty much everything being done, and projected to be done in the future is in
coordination with the Governor's Office, the CDC, and the Department of Public
Health. As a state agency themselves, the KHSAA has no authority to deviate from
the directives of those agencies.
4. The priority of all state agencies which also oversee high school sports, is
presently getting schools open and kids back to school. It was stated that there
exists "a delicate balance between the Start of School and the Start of Sports,"
with the Start of School being the priority. “Our goal is starting school on time,”
Tackett said. “That’s where we have to keep our focus. … We want to minimize
5. The KHSAA voted to suspend Bylaw 5 requirements for this fall. Bylaw 5 focuses
on academic-progress requirements and a first-day-of-school “credit check.” Tackett
said some schools were concerned some athletes would not be academically eligible
this fall because of pandemic-related issues during the spring and summer.
Please remember that these are my personal takeaways. I'm sure that Kevin Bundy will issue
an official release from the KHSAA when the dust settles on the meetings conducted today.
Commissioner Tackett again stated today, he feels (strongly) that the 2019 and 2020 Football
seasons are not going to look anything alike. His advise is to prepare for whatever is going
to happen, up to and including play, pause, play, pause possibilities. 2019 and 2020 looking
alike went down the drain when the restrictions against formal tryouts and practice have been
delayed from July 15th until at least August 2nd when the directive will again be revisited.
There was also no mention of having players/fans sign waivers to play/attend fall sports.
While this train of thought has been a longshot, it seems to be a very popular option, being
voiced in the general public.
There was extensive discussion on permitting players who play on our high school teams to
play on teams outside of their high school teams. It seemed to me that the feeling is that it
will be permitted only for showcase purposes. I was not tuned in when the final decision was
rendered. The KHSAA voted to make no changes to Bylaw 9, which restricts football and
basketball players from competing with AAU and travel teams during the school year.
Basketball players can continue to attend one-day recruiting opportunities but can't play for
their AAU or travel teams during the school year.
It sounds like the KHSAA is using the best proposals of other states and organizations to
formulate plans for regulating our sports start-ups here in Kentucky. It also has a distinct feel
that our high school sports future lies in the hands of the governor, and the KHSAA is only
making plans that could go into effect upon approval from the governor's office.
Basketball was not specifically discussed. Any basketball conditioning/workouts remain
voluntary and will remain the same in structure through August 2nd, when the next directives
will be issued. The 40% prime-time scheduling for girls basketball in conjunction with Title IX
requirements has been lifted for this season.
