We hope you enjoy your summer! eNews communication will resume on Friday, August 16.
The most current competition schedule for each fall sport can be found on the NPSL Athletics website.
In a change for the 2019-2020 school year, the athletic department will no longer be hosting parent nights at the beginning of each sports season. In its place, we will be holding ONE all-sports parent night for all families of student-athletes. Join the athletic department for a BBQ dinner, hear important messages about the upcoming sports seasons and have an opportunity to meet all of the coaches in a more relaxed, comfortable setting. Attendance is expected of all parent/guardians of student-athletes, so please mark your calendar for Tuesday, September 3 from 6:00-8:00pm.
Kennedy Catholic is currently hiring for a new position within the athletics department. If you are interested and experienced in building out youth programming, summer camps and more, please see the job description on the website.
New and returning students interested in participating in a fall sport will need to register through our online registration system beginning August 1 and have a current sports physical on file.
Lancer Football starts August 21; Boys & Girls Cross Country, Boys & Girls Golf, Boys Tennis, Boys Water Polo, Girls Soccer, Girls Swim & Dive and Girls Volleyball begin August 26. Sport-specific information, including voluntary summer workouts and tryout schedules, can be found on the individual team pages on our website.
Summer is a great time to get an updated sports physical, especially if you are new to the school/athletic program or yours has expired. Physicals are good for two years from the date of the exam and must remain valid throughout the sports season. Fall athletes will need a current physical on file in the Athletic Office in order to try out. Blank copies of the physical paperwork may be picked up outside Mrs. Umeda's office (A108-2) or downloaded here. Physicals may be scanned and emailed to Sam Reed, mailed to the school (Attn. Tracey Umeda), or dropped off to the main office in August.
The Campus Life Office is responsible for attendance, supporting the Kennedy Catholic culture, establishing and monitoring school-wide expectations for behavior and ensuring the safety and security of our students and the greater Kennedy Catholic community.
Please contact the Campus Life office via email or phone (206.246.3787) if your student will be absent. If your student must leave school early, please call Campus Life for an early dismissal slip.
Parking in the Kennedy Catholic lot is free. Students must register their car and obtain a parking pass in order to park in the lot. Registration may be completed at back-to-school orientation or through the Campus Life Office.
Students interested in developing their leadership skills and deepening their faith in God are welcome to explore these wonderful leadership opportunities. Feel free to contact Ms. Farrell if you have any questions.
