Welcome to Nelson County Schools Athletics.
The Nelson County School District, in partnership with the community, will provide diverse and individualized instructional services to inspire, enable, and prepare all students to be responsible, successful members of the competitive global society.
Athletic Program Philosophy
To promote safety, fairness and good sportsmanship at all levels of the district athletic program, coaches shall implement relevant policies and procedures of the Nelson County Board of Education, the SBDM council, and the Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA).
It is the intent of the Board of Education that students participate in as many athletic activities for which they are eligible and their parents wish. To this end, coaches shall strongly encourage students to participate in all sanctioned sports programs offered by the school. It shall be the responsibility of all coaches to follow these guidelines:
- If student-athletes quit when faced with a possible suspension from eligibility or are removed from an activity for disciplinary reasons, they shall be ineligible to compete in another sport for the period of the disciplinary sanction imposed or for the period the sanction would have been imposed had s/he not quit.
- Student-athletes may participate in more than one (1) sport or sport activity during the same season if both coaches are able to coordinate a student’s schedule.
