KHSAA pushes back start date for fall sports

Fall sports in Kentucky will happen this year, but they’re going to look a little different, according to WKYT.com.

Tuesday morning, the KHSAA Board of Control set the tentative dates for the upcoming school year:

The board was presented with a few different options, including moving fall sports to the spring or sandwiching call sports in between the winter and spring.

But the option they ended up choosing was delaying the start of fall sports, which will mean a shorter football season.

Football practice will begin Aug. 24, the regular season will start Sept. 11 with a nine-week season, and the state finals will be December 11, 12. That will mean some scheduled games will be canceled, but there will be an opportunity to reschedule some of them at the back end of the season.

Other fall sports such as soccer, field hockey, volleyball, and cross country can begin practicing Aug. 24 with competition starting Sept. 7.
