If you are interested in participating in KHS Pioneer Athletics for the 2021-22 school year, please read below for important information.
1. Privit Website
In an ongoing effort to simplify the pre-participation process for our students, parents, and coaches, the athletic office uses an automated paperless document collection source called Privit. The cumbersome process of collecting physicals and parent permission forms in our office will no longer be necessary. For more information about Privit you can go to the Privit online instructions page on the website. To begin uploading forms, you can go to the KHS Privit website at kirkwoodpioneer.e-ppe.com.
2. Physical Packet
If a student intends to play sports for the Kirkwood Pioneers, they must have a valid physical uploaded to Privit prior to participation.
The member schools of MSHSAA voted in favor of allowing physicals, used for athletic participation to be good for 2 years.
If your physical is dated on or after July 1, 2020, then it will be good through the 2021-2022 school year as well. It will expire on June 30, 2022.
- Forms can be downloaded in the forms section of the athletics website or picked up on the wall outside the athletic office. We prefer for you to only use our forms.
3. Insurance Requirements
All athletes MUST have basic accident (medical) insurance coverage to participate in athletics. This information is to be provided on the physical packet. If you do not have medical coverage, please visit the medical options section of the athletic website.
4. Health Protocols
DO NOT ATTEND PRACTICES/WORKOUTS IF YOU HAVE HAD ANY OF THE FOLLOWING SYMPTOMS IN THE PAST 24 HOURS:
- Fever (Temperature greater than 100.4)

- Sore throat, different than your seasonal allergies
- New loss of smell and/or taste

- You have a household or close contact who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 2 weeks.
5. Practice Cards
Once an athletes Privit profile is up to date, your practice card will be given to your coach. Without this card, an athlete will NOT be able to participate.
Privit Profile must be complete by August 3 in order for your coach to have your practice card!
6. ImPACT Testing
Any incoming Freshman, a student new to KHS, or who did not test last year and plans on participating in baseball, basketball, cheerleading, field hockey, football, girls lacrosse, soccer, softball, volleyball, or wrestling will be contacted by the trainer to complete their testing online.
7. Summer Camp and Summer Workouts
Summer camp information can be found at www.kirkwoodcamps.com. In addition to camps, many sports teams have workouts or conditioning over the summer. Please contact the head coach of the sport your athlete may be interested in for dates, times, and locations. Be sure to follow your team on Twitter! Coaches will tweet information often--keeping you most up to date!
