More Information:

All students grades 6-8  are able to tryout for the boys and girls teams.  All athletic physicals and an $90 athletic fee are due to Mrs. Hyatt in the main office before tryouts and spring break, by March 9th (see resources below). The season begins with tryouts after Spring Break (TBD - check team website above for updates).  The boys team and girls team will each have a maximum of 12 players from each gender.  Students who tryout, but do not make the final team roster will be issued a refund check for the $90 participation fee mentioned above.  All equipment, balls, and golf clubs are the responsibility of the player/family.  PSD will provide a team polo shirt for those who make the team.  This sport will compete at local golf courses, with nine hole matches against each of the other eight middle schools. The season will conclude with an 18 hole tournament at Southridge Golf Course on May 10th.  Please refer to this website for additional details.  

PSD Athletic Participation Requirements

All middle school students participating in PSD Athletics must complete all four pages of the PSD Middle School Athletic Participation Forms (NEW VERSION).  These forms must be printed, completed, signed, and turned into Kinard’s athletic office prior pre-season camps and/or tryouts.  Hard copies of the forms are available in the main office.  The forms include the following components:

  • Middle School Athletic Participation Permission and Release 
  • Student Athlete Medical Information
  • Physician Certification of Student Fitness for Athletic Participation
  • Payment of the $90 Participation Fee (per sport) - Due prior to the first day of practice

Keep in mind that these forms require that you schedule a physical exam and obtain a doctor’s signature.  This process can be time consuming and requires that you plan ahead to arrange for an appointment at a clinic well before the start of the season.  Please note that these new forms need to be completed for the current academic year.  Previously completed release forms are no longer valid for the 2016-2017 season.  If your child has previously completed a physical exam and already has a doctor’s signature on file at Kinard, it may still be valid IF it the one year expiration date of the signatures extends beyond the end date of the season.  The physical form expires one year from the original date of completion and needs to be renewed annually prior to participation.  In addition, based on PSD’s new requirements, all athletes must pay the $90 participation fee before the first day of practice via SchoolPay or with checks payable to Kinard Middle School.  Any student who does not have the payments and required paperwork on file will not be allowed to participate until all requirements have been met.  After all PSD forms have been completed by you and your doctor, please submit the paperwork to the main office, or directly to the coaches.
