The Dead Period for all sports starts at 12:00:01 a.m. on June 25 and goes through 11:59:59 p.m. on July 9. KHSAA by-laws state that there is to be no use of school facilities, team uniforms, transportation, coaches, personnel or anything related to the athletic program.
According to KHSAA, school funds may not be expended in support of interscholastic athletics in any KHSAA sanctioned sport during this period and there is to be no communication between coaches and players during this period, including email, social media, texting, phone and all other forms.
KHSAA states, “The intent of the period when it was passed nearly unanimously by the membership, was for it to be dead, completely. Best advice to all member school representatives, “if you have to ask, the answer is likely no”. Use these two weeks to recharge batteries, repair facilities, get away from the students (and them away from you). You will have access the following fifty weeks, take these two (plus one extra day) away.”
