We are entering a busy week at school.  It is homecoming week.
 
On Tuesday, October 11th, (Green and White Day), the JV and Varsity Reserve should be at the grass field in uniform by 3:30 p.m. - ready for the 4:30 p.m. JV game on the grass field at 4:30 p.m.   The Varsity should arrive in uniform ready to go by 4:30 p.m. to watch the first half of the JV and then to warm up for the 6 p.m. game against Plymouth on the turf.
 
On Wednesday, October 12th, (College Day for spirit week) we will start practice at 2:30 p.m. in Room 178 for a HUDL session.  Come to this before getting changed for practice.  By 3:15 p.m. you can head to the locker rooms and then to the field for dynamic stretches and agilities.  Our conditioning coach, Coach Lane, will be back for the final hour of Wednesday's practice.
 
On Thursday, October 13th, (class theme day), we will be hosting a clinic for an unknown  number of Crescent Lake School 6th graders, as a community outreach.  If there are only a small number of 6th graders, we will have just our seniors work with them.   Report for practice as usual that day.
 
On Friday, October 14th,(class color day),  there will be a practice for only the varsity and the varsity reserve.  We share the turf with the boys from 245-445 p.m. that day.  We are getting ready for the varsity only game on Saturday.
 
On Saturday, October 15th, (Senior night) the Varsity and Varsity Reserve should arrive at Alumni Field by 345 so that you are ready to start warming up by 4 p.m.  Ceremonies for the seniors will start early enough to keep the 5 pm. game time start on schedule.

the week of October 3rd

Monday, October 3rd:
 
JV and Varsity practice on the soccer practice field.  We will decide at this practice which members of the varsity reserve will be traveling to the varsity only game at Kennett on Tuesday.
 
 
Tuesday, October 4th:
 
Varsity and named members of the varsity reserve will be dismissed at 1:15 p.m. for the away game at Kennett.  Kennett will be promoting youth soccer at this event.  There will be young soccer players escorting the varsity in.  There will also be youth scrimmages pregame and at half time.  We need to keep our focus on playing as an organized team to get the win.  Depending on numbers, the JV may have practice or a day off.  This will be decided on Monday.
 
Wednesday, October 5th:
 
Varsity has practice on the soccer practice field.  We are waiting to hear from the conditioning coach if he can make it this day.  There is a JV only home game against Kennett on the grass soccer game field.  JV should report in uniform ready to warm up by 3 p.m.
 
Thursday, October 6th:
 
We are on the practice field for the first hour and then we are planning a film session the second hour.  As usual the film session will be in Room 178 across from the practice gym from 345 until 445.
 
Friday, October 7th:  Both the JV and the Varsity have games on the turf.  The JV game starts early (at 3:30 p.m.) so these players need to get prepared quickly after school.  The Varsity is expected to watch the first half of the JV game and then warm up for the varsity game during the JV second half.  The varsity plays Merrimack Valley at 5 p.m.

JV practice will be canceled today, Monday 9-26

Hi All,

Unfortunately because of the number of girls out of school today, the players who can't make it and the players who got promoted to Varsity Reserve for the game today, we will be canceling practice due to the low number of players available.

Game Day Reminders


Tomorrow, Friday, August 26th, is our season opener.  We are hoping that parents can make the trip to Coe-Brown.

JV and Varsity Players should be at Alumni Field by 1:45 p.m.   We are on the road at 2 p.m.   (there is no morning practice due to the game).

Players should remember plenty of water and sunscreen.  It is forecast to be hot and humid.   Players should also pack a brown bag dinner.  There will be no fast food stops.

The varsity plays at 4 pm.  The JV plays at 5:30 p.m.   We should be back to Kingswood by 8 p.m.   We will know the exact time we arrive back to Kingswood when we leave Coe-Brown in Northwood.  Athletes can call parents at that time.  Parents, please do not make your daughters wait to be picked up from Kingswood.

During the season, whenever we drive past the Alton Circle, it will be possible to pick your daughter up there.  Here are the rules:   Write a note for the bus driver giving permission for your daughter to be picked up there.   If the bus arrives at the Alton Circle store and the parent is not there, the bus will continue with that athlete up to Kingswood.  You must arrive at the store before the bus.    For trips to the north, the bus can stop at the Hannaford parking lot (the Job Lots side).  The same rules are in effect.

Go Knights!   Protect the Realm!

On Monday, August 29th, we switch to afternoon practice, 3 - 5 p.m.
On Tuesday, August 30th, JV will have a practice from 3 - 5 p.m.   The JV players who can stay for the varsity game should go directly to the turf field at 5 p.m.  A box dinner would be a good idea.   At 6 p.m. the varsity will host Kennett on the turf.

On Wednesday, August 31st, the varsity will have practice from 3 - 5 p.m.   The JV will be traveling to Kennett.  The website (kingswoodhsathletics.org) has the game time listed as 6 p.m.   I am going to double check this since it seems late.  If this is correct, the JV should be ready to go at 3:45 p.m.

On Thursday, September 1st, both JV and Varsity have practice from 3 - 5 p.m.

On Friday, September 2nd, the last morning practice of the season will take place from 7:45 a.m. until 10 a.m.

There are no practices or games over the Labor Day Weekend. 

On Tuesday, September 6th, the first day of school, the varsity only will have a road trip to Plymouth.  The JV will have a practice from 2:45 - 4:45 p.m.

On Wednesday, September 7th, the varsity will have an afternoon practice.  The JV will be dismissed early from school for a road trip to Plymouth.

After the school year begins, the regular practice schedule will be from 2:45 - 4:45 p.m.  There may be some exceptions with later practices for the varsity.  These will be announced via this group e-mail and the team website

The website,   kingswoodhsathletics.org , is the best place to look for team news and schedule updates.

8/18 - 8/20 Thursday through Saturday


Girls Soccer Players and Parents:

Here are a few reminders about the next few days.

The baseline concussion testing originally scheduled for Thursday, August 18th will now be Friday, August 19th from 8 a.m. until it is completed.  It usually takes about 45 minutes.  All 9th graders, all 11th graders and anyone who has not had it done in the last 2 years must attend.  Meet where we always meet by Alumni Field at 7:45 a.m.

We are hoping to announce the varsity team and the junior varsity team on Thursday.  This year we will have a Varsity Reserve.  These players will be considered varsity and will be issued varsity uniforms.  These players will play with the junior varsity (wearing their varsity uniforms) to get more experience and playing time.  When needed, they will be called to play with the varsity.   All varsity reserve players will be playing with the varsity this Saturday at the Jamboree in Bedford.  Junior Varsity members will not be playing on Saturday.

The Media Day starts sharply at 5 pm. in the Kingswood gym. Athletes will first meet in the gym with the athletic director.  Next go to Room 178 across from the practice gym for uniform issue.  We then proceed to the gym for the media interviews and the team photos.  We should be finished around 7 p.m.

preseason reminders


Great job at day 1 of tryouts!

Here are some reminders for day 2 and beyond:
 

Tonight follow the instructions to form fit your mouthguard using boiling water.
 

Each day:  Bring your own water.  Always pack sunscreen.  Shinguards, cleats, and your mouthguard should be in your bag for every practice and game.

Do not wear jewelry at practice.  It is not allowed during games.  Practices get us ready for the games.

Our trainer, Alex Dria, will be performing the mandatory baseline  concussion testing for all athletes in grades 9 and 11 and anyone who has not had a baseline test.  We have reserved Thursday morning from 8 until 8:45 a.m. for this testing.

Each day this week the tryouts and practices are held from 745 a.m until 10 a.m.  We meet by the concession stand at Alumni Field.  We are hoping to announce the varsity team on Thursday.

Reserve Friday evening for the Media Day.  This starts at 5 p.m. and runs until we are finished with uniform issue and team photographs (around 7 p.m.).

The Varsity Team will be competing on Saturday at a jamboree at Bedford High School.  Meet at noon behind the Arts Center for the bus.  The games are at 3 p.m., 5 p.m. and 7 p.m.  The bus will return to Kingswood around 9:30 pm.
