Athletic Participation Requirements & Fee Information

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 to participation.  Hard copies of the forms are available in the main office.  The forms require 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  Previously completed release forms are no longer valid for the 2016-2017 season.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.  More information about track and field can be found on Mr. Benson's Kinard Track and Field page.
