PROPER UNIFORM AND EQUIPMENT
Coaches are reminded to make sure runners are properly equipped prior to arriving at the start line for a race. Review the legal uniforms and equipment document which is located on the KSHSAA cross country page. In meets I have attended, it have observed a couple of issues. If runners are wearing stocking hats or headbands all members of the team must have the same color. Not all have to wear a headband or stocking hat, but if worn – all must wear the same color. Visors and baseballs style hats may not be worn during competition. The same is true of gloves, if worn all members of the team must have the same color.

Any visible garment(s) worn by two or more cross country team members underneath the uniform top and or underneath the uniform bottom, extending below the knees shall be unadorned and of the same single, solid color, but not necessarily the same length. Visible items worn under both the top and bottom do not have to be the same color.

REGIONAL ENTRIES SUBMITTED ONLINE
All schools are required to submit their regional cross country entries ONLINE!
The KSHSAA will provide regional managers their meet file electronically containing all entries. This will reduce a lot of time consuming work for our volunteer host regional managers.
The online entry system opened on Wednesday, October 3. ALL REGIONAL ENTRIES MUST BE SUBMITTED ONLINE BY NOON ON OCTOBER 15. Directions on how to submit the entries was emailed to cross country coaches and AD's.
