The Kentucky School for the Blind (KSB) offers a comprehensive sports program for Kentucky students who are blind and visually impaired in grades kindergarten through 12.  KSB is a member in good standing of the North Central Association of Schools for the Blind (NCASB) and the Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA) since the inception of both organizations.

KSB competes in the NCASB Conference which includes residential schools for the blind from 12 member states.  Students travel throughout the season and compete in regional meets.  A combined conference meet is held at the conclusion of each sport season.

KSB students, students that attend the Short Term Program, and those that attend Jefferson County and surrounding districts in grades 7-12 or 14 and older are eligible to participate in 5 Varsity programs (Track and Field, Goalball, Cheerleading, Swimming, Forensics).  Students that attend KSB full time are eligible to participate in our Varsity Wrestling Program.  Students in grades K-6 are eligible to participate in our 5 Junior Varsity Programs.
