CONWAY — A fall sports preseason informational meeting for all Kennett High School athletes and their parents will be held on Monday, Aug. 12, at 5:30 p.m. at in the Loynd Auditorium at KHS.

KHS Athletic Director Neal Weaver will give a brief welcome and information session, including a review of the Student Activity Code and an explanation of the Family ID online registration program. Students and parents will then have separate team meetings with their coaches.

A current sports physical (within the past two years) and ImPACT concussion testing are both required before a student may begin practicing. Free sports physicals for 2019-2020 KHS students will be offered by the medical staff from Memorial Hospital at the high school on Tuesday, Aug. 13 at 5:30 p.m.

A parent/guardian should accompany their student and a copy of the sports physical will be provided. Ninth and 11th graders, and all other students who have not been tested within the past two years, will sign up with Colby Locke, KHS athletic trainer, at the Aug. 12 meeting to complete an up to date ImPACT test.

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.
