The mission of KCD's Lower School Intramural Program is to provide young children with an introduction to a variety of sports within KCD’s comfortable, supportive, and convenient environment. We provide a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding experience for all of our players, regardless of ability. We emphasize the importance of teamwork, sportsmanship, and respect for one another and for the sports themselves while promoting self-confidence, physical fitness, and Bearcat pride. We instill in our players the value of healthy competition and the understanding that both winning and losing are part of this experience, each being vital to the growth and development of a good sportsperson. Above all, we want every player to have fun because fun is an essential part of learning.
Instruction comes from a variety of sources: KCD varsity coaches, dedicated parents, and KCD varsity athletes. All our intramural coaches exhibit patience, caring, and athletic competence. Parents who are interested in coaching or other duties are encouraged to contact Intramural Director Cassandra Payne.
Fees cover expenses such as equipment, coaches, clinics from outside sources, trophies, and t-shirts. These fees also help the school to make various improvements without necessitating an increase in tuition. All fees must be paid prior to start of each intramural sport.
Sports run for six weeks and generally involve two hours of instruction and/or games per week. Most sports take place on weekdays following after-school programs, from 4:30–5:30 p.m. Children who are not enrolled in an after-school activity may participate in the Bearcat Club from 3:05 until 4:30 p.m. Due to gym or field space limitations, as well as other reasons, some sports are held on Saturdays.
A 75% refund will be offered until the start of the second practice. After that time, no refunds will be offered.
