ATTENTION ALL SPRING ATHLETES: The 1st day of spring sports tryouts/practices is Monday March 4th. All spring 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 spring sport at KHS, there are 2 main pieces of information that are needed to be completed and on hand in the KHS Athletic Office BEFORE March 4th, the PIAA CIPPE FORM (multiple pages, i.e., Physical Form) and the KCSD PARTICIPATION FEE & FORM. For more specific information about each form that is required, please visit the KHS Sports website at sports.kcsd.org and click Physical Information and Forms.
Questions? See Mr. Harvey or Mrs. Graves in the Athletic Office.
The PIAA (Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association, the governing sports body for the state of Pennsylvania), sets the official starting dates for the individual sports seasons (Fall, Winter & Spring).

Yes, believe it or not, but planning for NEXT year’s (2018-19) sport’s seasons has already begun. Three major areas of information that are always needed early are starting dates, physical information and participation fee information. From this web page, on the top banner you will see “PIAA Forms”. Click on this link and the next web page that appears, you will see “Informational Physical Letter”. Click on this link and a detailed letter will be downloaded for you to view that hopefully has all the information you need for physicals and the participation fee for participating in any sport at KHS for the 2018-19 school year.
The Kennett High School Athletic Department has teamed up with Kelly’s Sports to offer “Kennett Gear” that is now for sale. You can now order clothing with our Kennett name in a variety of styles, colors and even specialize the lettering to a specific sport, or just support Kennett (i.e., not sport specific). The best thing is that you can order what you want direct from home with no minimums, you can pay by a credit card and it ships direct to your home.
To see what is available and to purchase an item to wear to the next Kennett game or to give as a gift, etc., please visit the website below to make your order and to show that Kennett Spirit!
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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding of this new fee during these difficult economic times the KCSD is facing.
Concussions, unfortunately, are a part of many sports! There is a program/testing procedure that is available to assist medical professionals in determining when an athlete should return to the playing field/floor after receiving a concussion. The program/testing procedure is called ImPACT (Immediate Post-concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing).
KHS is offering the ImPACT Test to our athletes. For more specific information and to sign up for the test, please go to the top banner of this web page and you will see “Eligibility & PIAA Forms”, below that you will see “Physical Info& Forms”. Click on this link and the next web page that appears,you will see “ImPACT Test Form”. Click on this link and adetailed letter will be downloaded for you to view that hopefully hasall the information you need for the ImPACT Test and also how to sign up to receive the test.
