High School Athletic Vision Statement
High school student athletes will enhance their ability to achieve academically and athletically through strengthening their emotional, social, and physical development to foster problem-solving skills, teamwork, and resilience.
This page contains information for parents, students, and coaches about what's required in high school athletics.
One requirement for parents and students is they must view the JCPS Health & Safety Video. Students must watch it annually; parents must watch it one time at each grade level (middle and high). Coaches must stay current in their certification of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA) Sports Safety Course.
The KHSAA governs all schools and sports in the state. The KHSAA currently sponsors football, soccer, field hockey, cross-country, volleyball, golf, boys' basketball, girls' basketball, wrestling, archery, bowling, competitive cheer, swimming, baseball, fastpitch softball, track and field, and tennis. The association's bylaws create rules for all sports, including limitation of seasons, transfer rules, recruitment and influencing students, officiating, sportmanship, and requirements to coach.
