Information Regarding Sport Physicals for Fall 2019!!!

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 2019-20 school year sports are as follows: Fall Sports start Monday, August 12, 2019, Winter Sports start Monday, November 18, 2019, and Spring Sports start Monday, March 2, 2020.

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, 2019. 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 25 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:

  1. 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).
  2. 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 15, 2019, 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 15, 2019, 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 ngraves@kcsd.org or sharvey@kcsd.org

2019-20 KCSD Athletics 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.Please click here for the KCSDAthletic Fee Form.The form has all the necessary information and specifics. However, a few things to take note to are as follows:

  • The Athletic Fee is similar to the Physical Forms in that no one can try out or practice for a sport until the forms and fees are submitted to the KHS Athletic Office. The fee and form can be dropped off at the KHS Athletic Office or mailed to:Kennett High School
    Attn: Athletics
    100 East South Street
    Kennett Square, PA 19348
  • 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).
  • If this fee creates a hardship for any family, please contact Dr. Jeremy Hritz, KHS Principal or Sean Harvey, KHS Athletic Director for alternative fee arrangements.
  • If an athlete gets “cut” from a team during the tryout period, the fee will be reimbursed.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the KHS Athletic Office at 610.444.6632 or sharvey@kcsd.org or ngraves@kcsd.org. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding of this new fee during these difficult economic times the KCSD is facing.
