SOFTBALL - 7th & 8th Grade Girls
Head Coach: Danny Hollweg- firstname.lastname@example.org
Season Calendar - DOWNLOAD HERE
Softball is a 7th and 8th grade sport for girls at Kinard. Girls who participate will be placed on a varsity or junior varsity team for the duration of the season. Team placement is dependent on individual skill level, not grade level. Team placements will take place during the first week(s) of the season prior to the start of competition. Students who participate in our softball program must be currently enrolled as a student at Kinard. School uniforms and helmets are provided during competitions and are to be used for the duration of the season. Students must provide their own softball mitt and cleats. All athletes are required to register prior to the first practice date. Each player must also provide the $105.00 participation fee before joining the team. Players who do not complete the required paperwork and pay the athletic fee will not be allowed to practice until cleared by our athletic office. Please notify coaches of any medical needs that are specific to your child prior to the beginning of the season (i.e. asthma, etc.).
Pre-Season Softball Camp Information
Pre-season softball camp will be held for any 7th and 8th grade girls who are interested in trying out for the team. This optional camp will take place on the Kinard softball fields on February 28th and March 1st from 3:30pm - 5:00pm. The camp provides student-athletes with the opportunity to begin working on fundamental skills and helps the girls to prepare for the upcoming season at Kinard. This camp is not mandatory and participation in the camp will have no bearing on the athlete’s placement or playing time when the softball season begins. The camp is designed to be a non-evaluatory experience that is free of charge. Any student-athlete participating in the pre-season camp must have an updated physical form on file with the front office PRIOR to participation in the camp (see above). If your daughter plans to participate in this camp, please print and complete the Pre-Season Camp Registration Form and submit it to the athletic office in the media center before the camp begins.
PSD Athletic Participation Requirements
How to Register
PSD has revised the athletics registration process for the 2018-2019 school year. Please register your child online using Sports Engine, each time your child begins a new sport. Keep in mind that online registration still requires families to submit a hard copy of the physical form, complete with a doctor signature. Please remember that students cannot participate in any athletic camps, tryouts, or practices at Kinard until coaches have the medical release form signed by a doctor. At this time, we recommended that you begin to think about making appointments for your medical/physical check while you have time to see a doctor for a signature prior to our upcoming sports season. In addition, full athletic registration also includes a fee of $105 (per student, per sport). Payments can be made via SchoolPay or with a check payable to Kinard Middle School. If you have any questions about a specific sport, please contact our coaches directly, or email our Athletic Director, Chris Bergmann (email@example.com).
