    Athletics Update:


    We are excited about the potential of returning to school and would like to collect interest about continuation of the winter sports season. A half season could be conducted between March 16 and April 16 and the fee for the season would be half the normal cost for each sport (boys basketball-$75, softball- $75 and cheer $45). Please complete the GOOGLE FORM to indicate your interest in participation by Friday February 19. We will review the interest survey to evaluate which seasons are able to be continued.  The status of each sport will be determined and applicable schedules shared by March 5. Information about Safe Return to Athletics can be found on the Kyrene Athletics webpage.



    *All participants are required to register online. 

    • Once your child is registered, you will receive an email stating registration has been completed. If you do not receive an email, please go back into the registration page and check the cart.  You will need to check out to complete the registration. 
    • Every student registered to participate in a sport will also need a signed concussion form and a current physical on file. 
      Sports physicals are good for 1 year. Forms are online on the CMS athletics website or in the front office with Ms. Patti in student services. 
    • Coaches will hold informational meetings the first week of practices. Letters from the coaches will be available at those meetings and on the CMS athletics website.


    If your student will be participating in a non-cut sport, payment of $110 is due at the time of registration.
    If your student is trying out for a cut sport, payment of $150 will be due once you have been notified your student made the team. A cheer payment of $90 will also be due upon making the team. 
    You will need to pay the participation fee by the first day of practice. You have several options to make your payment.

    1. Payment will be made for non-cut sports at the time of registration. Payment for cut sports will be made online once you have been notified your student made the team.
    2. Payment can be made by calling the District Office, 480-541-1500.
    3. You can go to the Kyrene School District Customer Service Center at 8700 South Kyrene Rd, Tempe (located at the NW corner of Kyrene & Warner Rd)
