Athletics & Clubs


Harlan County High School offers a variety of athletic activities for both female and male students during the school year. Before participation in any athletic activity the student athlete must have the proper parental consent and medical forms on file with the athletic director.


Athletic forms and additional information on athletics may be obtained from members of the school’s coaching staff, or the athletic director. The inter-scholastic athletic program at HCHS is governed by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association. A copy of all team rules, bylaws, and awards to be issued in any sports may be obtained from the athletic director.

Disclaimer: Only those booster organizations operating under bylaws approved by the Harlan County Board of Education shall be recognized by the school district name and facilities.  The Harlan County Board of Education does NOT recognize or endorse any individual, group of parents, or community members who may choose to raise funds to support the athletic endeavors of any athletic team or individual student aside from the official booster organizations listed above.
