Volunteers May Not Coach or Assist

KSHSAA Rule 10— QUALIFICATIONS OF COACHES (ATHLETIC
OR SPEECH) AND MUSIC DIRECTORS, makes it
clear every person employed as a coach or assistant
coach of athletics or speech, or as a music director for
a member school must be certified to teach in compliance
with standards established by the State Board
of Education. It further stipulates that in an emergency, a
member school may apply to the KSHSAA for a waiver of the
requirement of employing a certified teacher and for permission
to employ coaches/directors aides. These people must be
employed before they are privileged to work with our youth
in interscholastic activities during practice sessions and/or
during competition.
Volunteers may not be used as coaches or assistant
coaches. In order to work with school teams, individuals
must be under contract to the school. The same is true of
aides, as they too must be employed if they desire to work
with youth in practice sessions and/or during the time students
are involved in interscholastic competition. Coach aides need
to be approved by the KSHSAA (see Rule 10-1-3).
