Parents and Guardians,
In past years, KMS has tried not to make cuts to student athletes in our soccer program. Due to the large number of students, we adopted a new plan for placing students on teams. KPSAA (the governing body for sports/activities within the district) policy states that 7th and 8th graders will have priority in making teams and 6th graders will fill teams as needed. According to the policy if any cuts are made, they would have to come from 6th grade participants.
To avoid having to cut athletes, we have a new system in place. The teams are structured as follows:
Starting Monday, all 6th graders will begin an intramural soccer program. It will run Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday until 4:00pm. Coaches will evaluate athletic performance and determine which 6th graders will complete the 2 KMS Co-ed B Teams. Any 6th grader who does not make a B Team will remain in the intramural program for the remainder of the soccer season. The intramural program fee is $25.
KMS Boys A and KMS Girls A Teams were posted Friday Morning 8/25 and consist of 7th & 8th Graders. All other 7th & 8th graders will continue to practice daily and will be split evenly in to two KMS co-ed B Teams. Practice for A and B Teams will be every day from 2:30-4:00pm and the fee is $60.
– Practice for 6th grade intramurals is Monday-Wednesday from 2:30-4:00pm.
– The 6th grade intramural fee is $25.
– Practice for A and B teams is Monday-Friday from 2:30-4:00pm.
– A and B Team fees are $60.
We are proud of our student athlete level of participation, and we will strive to continue to provide opportunities for our students!
Thank you for your patience and understanding,
KMS Soccer Coaches
