Starts With Me

Always be positive and professional. The KSHSAA prioritizes sportsmanship! It is imperative that coaches and officials willingly accept the responsibility of being positive role models. The ethics, integrity, and sportsmanship exhibited by adults have a profound effect on the young people who participate. #STARTSWITHME


2023-24 NFHS SWIMMING & DIVING POINT OF EMPHASIS
Participant and Spectator Unsporting Conduct
The 2023 NFHS Swimming and Diving Questionnaire revealed a dramatic increase of profanity on the deck. Coaches and competitors are reminded of rule provisions prohibiting this kind of behavior. Under Rule 3-6-1, unsporting conduct includes, but is not limited to, making insulting or derogatory remarks, gestures or acts including taunting, trying to influence, showing disgust, or interfering with an official. The meet referee always retains the authority under Rule 3-6-11 to disqualify a competitor for any act the referee deems as unsporting conduct. Per Rule 3-6-2, unacceptable conduct includes, but is not limited to, the use of profanity whether or not it is directed at another person, or any action which could discredit the individual or the individual’s high school. Team personnel shall be disqualified from that event or the next event in which the competitor is entered, whichever is appropriate.

KSHSAA GUIDELINES FOR LIGHTNING SAFETY
First and foremost, schools should know and follow their pool facility’s lightning procedures. Secondly, be familiar with the KSHSAA Guidelines for Lightning Safety, and follow these recommended protocols if there are no sitespecific ones available.

KSHSAA RULE 40-2-4: “No student representing a member school shall participate in more than 10 meets during a season exclusive of the state meet.”

KSHSAA RULE 30-2-2: “A student who is enrolled at the start of a season of sport must be a member of the squad for the majority of the scheduled varsity contests in order to be eligible for postseason competition.” Majority means over half. Thus, for schools with a 10-meet schedule, a team member must participate in at least 6 of the 10 meets to be eligible to compete in the state meet
