Dear KMS Families,
Sign ups for all 2020 fall sports offered at KMS is now up and running for you! Please click the link found below and it will take you to all the information connected to our fall sports offerings. We look forward to seeing you this fall!
The official start date for all KMS fall athletic TEAMS begins August 1st. Some sports at KMS include a mandatory tryout. We are sorry we will not be able to excuse anyone from this piece for any reason such as family vacations or extended stay to another part of our globe. Other sports like cross country and football have mandatory 10 acclimation periods for health and safety reasons that cannot be excused either. Please plan accordingly for your upcoming summer. Please email Heath O'Neal with questions or concerns [email protected]

Thank you 
Heath O'Neal,KMS Athletics
