KSHSAA moves forward with fall activities as scheduled

Posted Jul 29, 2020 3:34 AM

TOPEKA – All fall activities will go forward as planned, and start on time after the Kansas State High School Activities Association (KSHSAA) executive board voted down a measure delaying the start of the season.

In a Zoom meeting Tuesday, the board voted 5-4 against a proposal put forward by KSHSAA officials to start some sports after the Labor Day holiday.

Because the board voted down the delay the first day of fall practice is scheduled to start Aug. 17. The first football game would be Sept. 3 or 4.

KSHSAA sent out to a survey to the state’s school district asking for information about the start of the school year. Approximately 85% of school districts responded and 168 school districts will start school on or after Aug. 24.

Last week the board released its considerations for a return and activity specific considerations.
