Announcements and Important Events
KV Student-Athletes & Parents,
Please take a few minutes to read through each item in order to be prepared for the start of Fall Sports.
If your child would like to participate in a sport this fall, you should have already turned in a completed PIAA Physical and Code of Conduct through ATS. These were due on August 30th. Instructions on how to complete this paperwork can be found here: https://keithvalleysports.org/main/otherad/contentID/47290161
Each student’s ATS login credentials were emailed to their school email account on August 19th.
Student-athletes need to complete an ImPACT baseline test online before participating in fall sports. This is mandatory for all athletes except those playing Girls Tennis. Instructions on how to complete this test were emailed to each student on Wednesday, August 31st from AtHomeTest@impacttestonline.com . The deadline to complete these tests is September 6th.
Fall Sports will begin on the following dates. Please take note of these dates, as some have recently changed:
JV/Varsity Football: Mon, September 7th
Girls Soccer: Mon, Sept 12th
Girls Volleyball: Mon, Sept 12th
Girls Field Hockey: Mon, Sept 12th
Girls Tennis: Mon, Sept 12th
Girls Cheer: Mon, Sept 13th
Boys Soccer: Mon, September 19th
Students should bring all necessary sports gear with them to school on their first day of practices or tryouts. Students will store their sports bags and gear in their PACE room. Students can pick these items up during PACE period at the end of the day.
Please be aware that there are some sports at KV where we will need to have tryouts. Although we would love to give every student the opportunity to participate on the team of their choice, we simply can’t keep everybody. Judging by the signups thus far, it looks like we will be having tryouts for Cheer, Girls & Boys Soccer, and Girls Volleyball. For those students that do not make the team, we would encourage you to consider joining another KV fall team that did not host tryouts. With this is mind, please do not be discouraged from trying out for the sport you really want to play! We simply want to make you aware of the tryout procedure so that you can mentally prepare yourselves ahead of time.
Keith Valley will be providing water for all sports, but we recommend student-athletes bring their own personal water bottles.
KV will provide 5:15pm late buses after every practice and event, Monday through Friday. These buses will be located in front of the KV upper gym. Students are encouraged to utilize these late buses as a means of transportation after practices and home games.
Parents that would like to pick up their student-athlete should arrive at KV at 5:05pm. To allow pickups to flow better, we will have four separate pickup locations.
Cheer & Volleyball: Please pick up your student-athlete behind the KV Upper Gym.
Football & Field Hockey: Please pick up your student-athlete in the lower parking lot. This is the lot right next to the football stadium & field hockey field.
Girls Tennis & Girls Soccer Parents: Please pick up your student-athlete in the side parking lot. This is the long lot just above the Tennis courts.
Boys Soccer Parents: Please pick up your student-athlete on the side of Upland Ave directly behind the lower soccer field.
Parents & spectators will NOT be permitted to stay and watch any practices. We will only allow parents and spectators to view contests.
If you would like to take a look at our Fall sports game & competition schedules, you can find them on our KV athletics website: https://keithvalleysports.org/
Thank you for taking the time to read through and understand these procedures. I will also be reviewing these procedures in school with our student-athletes.
We look forward to the start of a great Fall season!
Thank you for your support,
