CONWAY — Fall sports practices are scheduled to begin next week for Kennett High student-athletes.

KHS Athletics Director Neal Weaver hosted the annual fall sports preseason informational meeting for all high school athletes and their parents on Monday at Gary Millen Stadium, where he talked about the upcoming season and challenges amid the COVID-19 pandemic. He reviewed the Student Activity Code and explained the safety procedures that are being put into place to start the fall sports season.

A current sports physical (within the past two years) and ImPACT concussion testing are both required before a student may begin practicing. Ninth and 11th graders, and all other students who have not been tested within the past two years, should contact Colby Locke, KHS Athletic Trainer from Mountain Center Physical Therapy, for remote ImPACT concussion baseline test information.

The Family ID registration button and link to directions, as well as the Student Activities Code, can be accessed on the KHS athletics webpage (khsmwv.com/athletics). Online registration must be completed by a parent or guardian. There are two sections where students are expected to electronically sign as well, but the majority of the registration must be filled out and approved by the student’s parent or guardian. Failure to properly register may postpone a student’s eligibility and ability to participate.
