The Kansas State High School Activities Association Eligibility Requirements are comprehensive.
A student, to be eligible to participate in interscholastic activities, must be certified by the school principal or athletic director as meeting ALL eligibility standards.
To Determine Eligibility When Enrolling:
If a negative response is given to any of the following questions, this enrollee should contact his/her administrator in charge of evaluating eligibility. This should be done before the student is allowed to attend his/her first class and prior to the first activity practice.
1. Are you a bona fide student in good standing in school? (If there is a question, your principal will make that determination.)
2. Did you pass at least five new subjects (those not previously passed) last semester? (The KSHSAA has a minimum regulation which requires you to pass at least five subjects of unit weight in your last semester of attendance.)
3. Are you planning to enroll in at least five new subjects (those not previously passed) of unit weight this coming semester? (The KSHSAA has a minimum regulation which requires you to enroll and be in attendance in at least five subjects of unit weight.)
4. Did you attend this school or a feeder school in your district last semester? (If the answer is “no” to this question, please answer Sections a and b.)
a. Do you reside with your parents?
b. If you reside with your parents, have they made a permanent and bona fide move into your school’s attendance center?
Please read this brief summary of important eligibility requirements. Consult your athletic director on any questionable items. Read the Amateur Rules carefully.
The complete regulations are published in the official KSHSAA Handbook which is distributed annually and is available at your school. Schools may have stricter rules than those listed.
