The high school fall sports season is just around the corner. The first day of high school fall athletics practice is Aug. 19.

All athletes must turn in completed physical forms before the first day of practice.

The Kansas State High School Activities Association adopted heat acclimation rules in 2018 for the first few weeks of practice.

• Only one practice per day is permitted the first five days of practice. All individuals shall only practice once per day for the first five days the individual practices, no matter when the person joins the team or if the person misses days due to injury/illness.

• No single practice may last longer than three hours. All warm-up, stretching, conditioning and weightlifting is included as part of the three-hour limit.

• A separate walkthrough is permitted in addition to the single practice. The walkthrough cannot be longer than an hour and must be separated from practice by at least three hours of rest.
