The Kentucky Board of Education will soon reconsider its policies governing middle school athletics. A legislative task force crafted final recommendations this week, which include many policies already in place at the high school level.
One Central Kentucky lawmaker is spearheading an effort to create a middle school athletic association in Kentucky.
State representative Bob Damron is the sponsor of House Concurrent Resolution 155, which holds the force of law if passed.
The resolution would require the Legislative Research Commission to start a task force on middle school athletics. Damron says a new athletic association is needed so as to not add pressure to already-established entities, like the Kentucky High School Athletic Association.
