FIRST DAY OF HIGH SCHOOL PRACTICES
Welcome to the 2017-2018 basketball season. TODAY, November 13, 2017 is the first day of high school practices. Once a student begins practicing with the school team they may no longer play or practice with a non-school team. Players who are still practicing with the football team may not begin basketball practice until their season is completed. (KSHSAA Rule 33-2-1)

ON-LINE RULE MEETING FOR COACHES - LAST DAY NOVEMBER 15
The on-line meeting option for coaches and officials will be available until November 15. It goes off at 11:00 PM on November 15. DO NOT wait until the last day or days to complete the meeting. Follow the directions sent in the test packet carefully.

TEST ANSWERS DUE BY MONDAY, NOVEMBER 20
All head coaches (HS/MS) and KSHSAA registered officials are required to take the 2017-18 NFHS Basketball Rules exam. Answers are to be submitted on-line per instructions accompanying the exam and are due NO LATER THAN MONDAY, November 20. The 100 question NFHS test was mailed to all school Athletic Directors on September 14, 2017. Officials receive the test in their packet with the rule books. Each coach/official will answer 50 of the 100 questions. Two questions were thrown out (#35 & #37) so when you print your answer sheet, the answers printed will not match the questions you got beginning with #35.

MIDDLE SCHOOL/JUNIOR HIGH REGULATIONS
With some schools having split seasons for basketball there are frequently questions about when a player becomes a member of the school team. They become a member of the team when they begin practicing with the team. When school practices start players may no longer play or practice on a non-school team. Middle school/Junior High players are limited to 16 games and may play in no more than 6 quarters a night.

MIDDLE SCHOOL NON-SCHOOL TEAM EXCEPTION
In April the KSHSAA Board of Directors voted to provide an exception for 7th and 8th grade players in regards to non-school team participation outside the season of sport. From October 22, 2017 through February 24, 2018 there are no restrictions on the number of players that may participate together on a non-school team. While a member of the school team a player may not play or practice with a non-school team. The school coach (head or assistant) may not coach player from their school team during the school year, outside the season of sport. The school team may not extend their season be continuing to play as the school team after the school season is complete. The rule change was made to provide equity between girls and boys participating on non-school teams outside the season of sport. Beginning February 25, 2018 the restrictions of no more than three players from the same non-school team playing or practicing go back into place. These regulations remain in effect until the Saturday before Memorial Day. [ Continue ]
