A private/non-profit association of accredited member schools, whose purpose is to administer a program of interscholastic activities, festivals, clinics and contests among member schools. The KSHSAA offers state championships in ten boys’ and girls' sports, and ten additional championships in music activities, debate, speech and drama, and scholars bowl. Of particular importance are efforts to elevate standards of good sportsmanship and to encourage growth of good citizenship among students and spectators.
The following information has been taken from the Kansas State High School Activities Association (KSHSAA) Handbook:
Rule 22 - OUTSIDE COMPETITION
Violation of this rule shall make a student ineligible for the remainder of that sport or scholars’ bowl or debate season, unless he or she is reinstated by the Executive Board. Section 1: General Regulations (apply to grades 7-12)
Art. 1: A student who is a member of a school athletic, scholars’ bowl or debate squad effective Tuesday following Labor Day through Friday preceding Memorial Day may not participate as a member of an outside team or as an independent competitor in the same sport, scholars’ bowl or debate activity.
Art. 3: A student becomes a member of a school’s athletic squad, scholars’ bowl or debate team when he or she first participates in a practice session. A student ceases to be a squad member after his or her last contest for the school’s athletic squad, scholars’ bowl or debate team or when the membership on a squad is terminated.
Before a student may participate in activities and athletics at Shawnee Heights Middle School he or she must:
1. Meet all eligibility requirements of the Kansas State High School Activities Association (KSHSAA).
2. Have a current physical on file with the school office. Note: physicals for the upcoming school year should be obtained after May 1 of the current year (i.e., your physical for the 2018-2019 school year must have been obtained after May 1, 2018.)
