Dear Parent/Guardian of Student-Athletes:
In order to participate (includes try-outs) in any sport at Kennett High School, your child must have a completed PIAA CIPPE form (Comprehensive Initial Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation) and the KCSD participation fee and form turned into the Athletic Office before the 1st day of tryouts/practice for a particular sport. The 1st day of tryouts/practice for the 2017-18 school year sports are as follows: Fall Sports start Monday, August 14, 2017, Winter Sports start Friday, November 17, 2017, and Spring Sports start Monday, March 5, 2018.
According to the PIAA (Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association), all sport physicals for the 2017-18 school year must be performed ON OR AFTER JUNE 1, 2017. Only 1 physical is needed for the entire school year, provided no physical changes occur to the student-athlete.
You may sign up for a school physical or arrange for a physical on your own. Regardless of your choice to obtain a physical, the physical forms can be picked up in the main office at the high school or they can be downloaded directly from our website at https://sports.kcsd.org (Physical Info. & Forms Link).
School sports physicals will be held on Tuesday, JUNE 27 (9:00am-12:00pm and then 1:00 pm-3:00pm,) at the NOVACARE REHABILITATION CENTER, 689 Unionville Road, Suite 1, Kennett Square, PA 19348.
To sign-up for a school physical you need the following:
- A non-refundable $10.00 school sports physical fee (cash or check payable to Kennett High School). If this fee creates a hardship for any family, assistance will be available (contact Mrs. Nancy Graves at 610-444-2416).
- A completed PIAA CIPPE form.
- The physical fee and the completed PIAA CIPPE forms are to be turned into the Athletic Office by Monday, JUNE 12, 2017, if you wish to sign up for a school sports physical. No appointment will be scheduled until both items are completed and returned to the Athletic Office. If the Athletic Office receives the CIPPE form and the non-refundable fee after JUNE 12, 2017, you will have to arrange for your own physical (sorry, scheduling purposes)…NO EXCEPTIONS. After the deadline, a schedule will be created and your child will be given the date and time of their physical, as we will still be in school (for incoming 9th graders, either we will make contact with your child at KMS or a letter will be sent home alerting you of the information you need). THERE WILL BE NO MAKE-UP EXAMINATIONS AND NO REFUNDS. If your child misses the appointment, he/she or you will have to arrange for their own physical.
KCSD PARTICIPATION FEE
KCSD requires a participation fee and form in order to participate in any sport at KHS. The form (which has all the necessary information and specifics) can be picked up in the main office at the high school or can be downloaded from our website at https://sports.kcsd.org (Physical Info. & Forms Link). As with the PIAA CIPPE Form, the Participation Fee and Form need to be completed, turned in, and on file in the high school athletic office before an athlete can tryout or practice with a team.
I hope this information serves its purpose. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the High School Athletic Office at 610-444-6632 or firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
