The PIAA (Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association, the governing sports body for the state of Pennsylvania), sets the starting dates for the individual sports seasons (Fall, Winter & Spring). For high school sports, specifically for Fall sports, the season starts prior to the start of the school year. Listed below are the starting dates for Kennett Middle School.
PAY TO PLAY: KCSD has adopted a Pay To Play policy which other schools in our league have employed for several years. 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 and Concussion information sheet. This form is part of the PIAA Sports Physical package.
