FRANKFORT, Ky. (WSAZ) - The Kentucky High School Athletics Association is discussing when winter sports are going to start this year.

The board is throwing around ideas on how to go about the season. The main priority is for no athlete to lose an entire season.

The idea the board is discussing is to extend the season and have it overlap with spring sports or shortening the season by starting at a later date.

The KHSAA already announced some Kentucky high school football playoffs can start their first round on Friday.

This is a developing story.
