PAY TO PLAY:
Once your student-athlete has made a KMS team, his/her coach will provide the Pay to Play information ($30/sport). This fee must be paid before your student is able to participate in practices/games. Additionally, the PIAA is mandating students and parents read and sign a Sudden Cardiac Arrest information sheet. This form will be provided to your student athlete by their coach and the signed form MUST be returned to your coach.
