Summer & Pre-Season Activities

Pre-season sport camps and workouts give student-athletes the opportunity to begin working on skills and preparing for the upcoming sports season.  These camps are not mandatory for participation in sports at Kinard, and participation in the camp will have no bearing on the athlete’s team placement or playing time when the season begins. The camps are free of charge to Kinard students enrolled in 7th or 8th grade for the 2018-19 school year.

Any student-athlete participating in a pre-season camp or summer workout must have an updated physical form on file with the front office, and must complete the Pre-Season Camp Registration Form.

Free Mouth Guards From Crane Orthodontics

For the past ten years, the team at Crane & Seager Orthodontics has been providing great custom made mouth guards for PSD football players, free of charge.  Custom mouth guards provide great protection and fit perfectly.  To take advantage of this opportunity, follow the steps below:

  1. Print and complete the Mouth Guard Consent Form
  2. Report to Crane & Seagar Orthodontics for a custom fitting on  FRIDAY AUGUST 10TH from 3:00PM - 5:00 PM
  •         Address: 4144 Timberline Rd. Fort Collins, CO 80525
  •         Phone: (970) 226-6443

They start this process by setting up specific days for teams to come into the office for impressions.  They use these impressions to create plaster casts of the teeth, called models.  Each model is cleaned and prepared for lamination.  Their lab technicians then cut each mouth guard to each player’s specific dental anatomy.  No two mouths are exactly alike, so therefore, no two players mouth guards are alike.  The mouth guards are also made to match Kinard’s school colors (royal blue).  Because the lamination process is completely customized, their mouth guard process works for athletes with or without braces; so in addition to looking great, they deliver a mouth guard that fits perfectly!  This better fit enables athletes to be able to speak clearly to their teammates during competitions and ensures that their breathing will not be obstructed.  

While the Crane & Seager Orthodontics team appreciates the opportunity to support our football players with mouth guards, there is also a variety of other vendors to choose from for your child.  Please note that all football players are required to wear a mouth guard during practices/games.
