Girls Basketball & Boys Soccer Update

posted Oct 12, 2020, 7:52 AM by KMS Hornets

Hello Hornet Families,

We are trying to gauge interest in 7th and 8th grade Girls Basketball and Boys Soccer. We are planning on playing but in order to plan we need to know how many student athletes will be allowed to try out and play for the Kealing sports teams. We know there are many questions at this time, and we will be following the district guidelines for safety procedures. This information can be found at https://www.austinisd.org/athletics. This website is also a great place to find all the required forms for your student.

If you are planning on having your student tryout and play for the school teams, please fill out our form

Fall Athletics Update

posted Sep 7, 2020, 4:21 PM by KMS Hornets

Kealing Athletics Update:

Hornets, we will not be having workouts for strength and conditioning during the month of September. We will be having Clubs for Football and Volleyball that will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays. In these Clubs we will share workouts and drills for players to complete at home. You will receive information about Clubs through Advisory. We do not know if we will play football or volleyball this fall at this point. We will let everyone know as soon as we have answers.

Updates on Athletic Physicals

Link to Athletic Physical Forms- https://www.austinisd.org/athletics/forms

There a few changes to the physicals process this year. Here is what you need to know:
  • All student Athletes will have to complete the Medical History portion of the physical packet.
  • If you had a completed physical packet for last year, the doctor's exam portion will be used again for this year. (If you turned it in last year, we have it in the system and you don't have to go back to the doctor)
  • If you did not have a physical packet from last year (none of the 7th graders would have one turned in last year) ,you will have to complete the Medical History portion and take the form to a doctor to have the Doctor's Exam portion completed.

Please contact Coach Gardner - justin.gardner@austinsid.org if you have any questions about the physicals process. We appreciate everyone's patience as we get more information on what sports will look like at Kealing Middle School this year.

Do I get to pick the events I participate in?

You will have an opportunity to participate in the events you want. We only get 3 or 4 spots per event per team (7th girls, 7th boys, 8th girls, 8th boys), so we take the 3 or 4 athletes per team that have the best performance in those events (times in the running events, distances in the jumps and throws) You may be asked to participate in an event that isn’t your top choice based on team need. 

Can I help the team if I am not the fastest person in my race or 1st place in my field event?

Yes. The team gets points for individuals placing from 1st to 6th place. Each grade level boys and girls really need multiple people to participate in each event to accumulate enough points to win the meet. Scoring is as follows


Relay Individual

1st Place 20 10

2nd Place 16 8

3rd 12 6

4th 8 4

5th 4 2

6th 2 1


To make track as enjoyable for athletes and coaches, we need you to come to practice on time ready to work hard and improve. We also need you to be in the habit of communicating with your coaches if you have a conflict and will miss a practice or meet. Email is the preferred method of communication.
