Please see the links below related to the shortage of officials that currently exists across the country.
Sports physicals will now be submitted to Formreleaf prior to the start of the athletic season. They should not be submitted to the athletic office.
Please click below to utilize the new sports physical submission portal.
Any questions related to the sports physical can be directed to Brett Colelli, our athletic trainer, firstname.lastname@example.org
We recommend keeping a copy of your completed sports physical in case there is an error within the FormReleaf platform.
*- Sections 1-6 of the physical are completed through the web site portal electronically as they are all student/parent or guardian questions.
*- Section 7, that is completed by the doctor, is the only piece of paper from the seven page document that needs to be uploaded through the web site. If Sections 1-7 are uploaded you will get an error message from the portal.
*- Section 8, that is completed by the student/parent or guardian, should be uploaded to the web site.
*- Section 9, that must be completed by a doctor, should also be uploaded to the web site if necessary.

Below are the procedures for the collection of the fees.
Students in KHS are required to pay an athletic fee to offset the cost of transportation, equipment, supplies, and other expenses directly associated with their sport.
- The Athletic Fee is similar to the Physical Forms in that no one receive a uniform until the fees are paid via Hometown Ticketing, or the fee has been waived by the Principal or the Athletic Director.
- Please use this link to pay the participation fee: https://kennett.hometownticketing.com/embed/all
- The fees are paid “by season”. If you play a Fall and Winter sport, you only pay $50 now for the Fall sport. Once we get closer to the Winter season, you pay that sports fee then (future publications/notifications of this fee will be forthcoming every season). The third sport is free for the school year, and the fee is waived in the spring’ if the athlete competed and paid for the fall and winter sport.
- If this fee creates a hardship for any family, please contact the KHS Principal or Sean Harvey, KHS Athletic Director for alternative fee arrangements.
- If cuts are necessary to create a team, the fee can be paid after the student athlete makes the team. If there are no cuts for a sport the fee can be paid at any time prior to each season.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the KHS Athletic Office at 610.444.6632 or firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com . Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding of these fees.

Lightning may be the most frequently encountered severe-storm hazard endangering physically active people each year. Millions of lightning flashes strike the ground annually, causing nearly 100 deaths and 500 injuries. Three-quarters of all lightning strikes occur between May and September, and nearly four-fifths occur between 10am and 7pm, which coincides with the hours for most athletic or recreational activities.
This lightning safety policy for the Kennett Consolidated School District was created in accordance with the recommendations of the National Athletic Trainer’s Association (NATA), and the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Activity Association (PIAA).
1. The official chain of command for who makes the call to remove individuals from the field will be the certified athletic trainer/athletic director, school administrators, coaches, and assistant coaches. Members of the chain of command will work in unison with game officials to make a formal decision. Once that decision has been made to suspend activity, all individuals should immediately seek refuge in a designated safe structure.
2. All persons in attendance to an event will be designated as “weather watchers”. They should watch and look for signs of threatening weather and notify a higher member of the chain of command if severe weather becomes dangerous.
3. Computers, weather radios, local radio stations, and lightning detectors will be used to monitor weather conditions, forecasts, and warnings.
4. Safe shelters are site specific. At the high school, the school building and the field house are designated as a safe shelter. At the football stadium, teams will be brought into the field-house or the high school and spectators will be moved into either the high school gymnasium if needed or advised to go to their automobiles. At Legacy fields, teams will be moved into the field-house and spectators will be advised to go to their automobiles. A team representative will be assigned to inform people when it is “all clear”. At NVF/KAU baseball field all individuals will be instructed to go to an automobile. A team representative will be assigned to inform people when it is “all clear”.
5. The “flash-to-bang” count method will be used to determine when to go to safety. When the count is thirty seconds, individuals should be inside a safe shelter.
6. Once activities have been suspended, thirty minutes without thunder or lightning activity must pass before activity is resumed. Remember that lightning can strike from up to ten miles away.
7. All individuals should avoid being the highest point on a field, in contact with, or in proximity to the highest point, or be in or on water. Do not take shelter under or near trees, flagpoles, or light poles.
8. Individuals who feel their hairs stand on end, skin tingle, or hear crackling noises should assume the lightning safe position. That position is crouched on the ground, weight on the balls of the feet, feet together, head lowered, and ears covered. Do not lie on the ground.
9. In the event of a lightning strike on an individual(s), basic first aid procedures will be used: a) survey the scene for safety b) activate EMS c) lightning victims are safe to touch and may be moved to a safer location d) evaluate airway, breathing, and circulation, and begin CPR if necessary e) evaluate and treat for hypothermia, shock, fractures, and/or burns.
10. All individuals have the right to leave an athletic site in order to seek a safe structure if the person feels in danger of impending lightning activity, without fear of repercussions, or penalty from anyone.
A safe location is any substantial, frequently inhabited building. The building should have four walls (not a dugout), electrical and telephone wiring, as well as plumbing, all of which aid in grounding a structure.
The secondary choice for a safer location from the lightning hazard is a fully enclosed vehicle with a metal roof and the window completely closed. It is important to not touch any part of the metal framework of the vehicle while inside it during the ongoing thunderstorm.It is not safe to shower, bathe, or talk on landline phones while inside of a safe shelter during thunderstorms. There is no evidence that cell phones are dangerous and may be used.
To use the flash-to-bang method, begin counting when sighting a lightning flash. Counting is stopped when the associated bang (thunder) is heard. Divide this number by five to determine the distance to the lightning flash (in miles). For example, a flash-to-bang count of thirty seconds is equal to a distance of six miles. “If you hear it, clear it; if you see it, flee it.
Postpone or suspend activity if a thunderstorm appears imminent before or during an activity or contest, (irrespective of whether lightning is seen or thunder heard) until the hazard has passed. Signs of imminent thunderstorm activity are darkening clouds, high winds, a sudden drop in temperature, and thunder or lightning activity.
ATTENTION ALL WINTER ATHLETES. The 1st day of winter sports tryouts/practices is Friday, November 17th. All winter coaches have had or will be having individual informational meetings for their respective sports. However, please be reminded that in order for any student to tryout/practice for any winter sport at Kennett High School, there are two main pieces of information that are needed to be completed and registered in FormReleaf BEFORE November 17th, the PIAA CIPPE FORM (multiple pages, i.e., Physical Form) and the KCSD PARTICIPATION FEE & FORM. Please click the following 2 links for more specific information for each piece of information that is required.
If you participated in a Fall sport and did not sustain an injury you only need to complete Section 8 of the Physical form.
If you participated in a Fall Sport and did sustain an injury you then need to complete Section 8 as well as Section 9 which requires a doctor’s signature clearing the student-athlete for future participation.
