Not shaking an opponent's hand following a game is usually considered unsportsmanlike, but the Kentucky High School Athletic Association wants to end the handshakes.

The organization issued a directive saying: shake at your own risk. If there's a fight you will be fined or sanctioned.

The high school association blames organized handshakes for dozens of fights that have broken out following games.

Some parents say ending handshakes sends the wrong message and conflict resolution should be taught instead.
