MIDDLE SCHOOL SEASONS
The opening day of practice for middle school basketball is determined by the school. The season starts for a student their first day of practice. The season ends on the last scheduled day of competition for the school team. Prior to a student participating in practice they must have a completed physical on file with the school. A student must also complete concussion education each year before starting practice. Once a student becomes a member of the school team, they can not play or practice on a non-school team until their team membership has ended.

MIDDLE SCHOOL NON-SCHOOL TEAM EXCEPTION
In April, 2015 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 24, 2021 (SCW #17) through February 27, 2022 (Sunday of SCW #35) 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 may not coach their potential players 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.
