2014 - 2015
Season Preview and Preparation

The September start-up sees a massive amount of information being passed between players, coaches, parents and the RND Athletic Department.
In an attempt to help simplify some of the upcoming organizational issues the RND Scoreboard has outlined a series of topics that should help ensure a smooth transition into the new school year and athletic schedules.

RND Scoreboard / www.rnd-panthers.com
This web site is the central source for all information related to the RND Athletic Department. All the necessary forms, schedules and policies are posted on the site. In addition, each team has it's own web site with specific team information, rosters, pictures, results, special scheduling, coaching instructions, tournament and travel information etc... RND coaches will send most of their information to the web site for posting rather than handing out paper to individual student-athletes. This allows the RND Community access to all the information regarding Panther teams using any computer, mobile phone or tablet.
The RND Scoreboard web site is updated numerous times each day and should be bookmarked by all Panther players, parents and fans. Questions can be directed at anytime to Mr. Ed Kenney - RND Athletic Director at RND_Athletics@hotmail.com

Eligibility for Sports at RND
Full-time students with passing grades, a good record of attendance and who have evidenced cooperation with teachers, including uniform policy comformity and positive effort in the classroom are eligible to participate in the RND Athletic program.
Every RND Athlete must, for each team they compete for, complete and submit to a RND teacher-coach a RND Student-Athlete Participation Form. This form should be read carefully as it outlines many of the responsibilities, obligations and policies applied within the entire RND Athletic program.

The Student-Athlete Participation Form MUST be submitted to the RND Teacher-Coach BEFORE PARTICIPATING in any Tryouts or Practices.

Students Who Have Transferred to RND from a Different High School
The OFSAA transfer policy clearly states that all transfer students are ineligible for athletic participation in their new school for a period of 1 year unless the eligibility is granted through an "appeal" using this policy. Students who have recently transferred to Regiopolis-Notre Dame, and who wish to participate in the RND extracurricular athletic program must first download and complete an OFSAA Transfer Appeal Form. There will be a meeting on Thursday, September 4, 2014 in the JUC Gym during the lunch period to assist students in the OFSAA transfer appeal process. Any additional questions can be forwarded to the RND Athletic Director - Mr. Ed Kenney at RND_Athletics@hotmail.com or at school 613-545-1902 ext 2545.
The KASSAA Transfer Appeal board consists of representatives from all Kingston Area High Schools. This group will meet in mid-September to consider the appeals forms of all the transfer students in KASSAA schools.

User Fees
Each RND team sets a specific user fee for athletes. This fee helps to cover the costs involved in specific team competitions and other experiences. A portion of this fee is forwarded to the RND Athletic Director for use supporting the entire athletic program at Regiopolis-Notre Dame. Athletic user fees should be forwarded to a RND Teacher-Coach prior to the first regular season KASSAA competition.
It is important to note that the RND community ensures that all RND students have the opportunity to represent their school in Garnet and Gold as part of Panther teams. Alternatives to the full payment of user fees are available to anyone with significant financial obstacles.

Team Tryouts
RND Fall Sports teams will advertise their sign-up information meetings and tryout schedules, starting on Tuesday, September 2, through hallway posters, announcements and postings on this web site. Most RND teams conduct two or three competitive tryout sessions before the team is selected. Once final selections are made team rosters are posted on the RND Scoreboard.

Practice and Game Schedules
Practices for the RND Football, Cross Country and Field Hockey teams occur immediately (2:45 pm) after school on specific facilities organized and communicatedby RND Teacher-Coaches. Volleyball and Basketball teams follow a specific gym/practice schedule posted on the RND Scoreboard - Click Here for a draft version of the 2014 Fall Gym Schedule

Game Schedules
The Regiopolis-Notre Dame Panthers compete within KASSAA (Kingston and Area Secondary School Athletic Association) The scheduling for all KASSAA games and events is done by the KASSAA Athletic Director, Mr. Frank Halligan. Co-ordinating this information for 13 schools participating in eight separate schedules/standings will take a couple of weeks to finalize. Official KASSAA schedules are posted on the RND Scoreboard and on the KASSAA web site: www.kassaa.ca
However, these schedules do not include numerous tournaments or non-league games that individual RND teams choose to participate in.

Garnet & Gold Night
Garnet & Gold Night - Regiopolis-Notre Dame's Annual Athletic Awards Banquet
was celebrated on Thursday, June 12th, 2014 in the RND Cafeteria.
Student-Athletes were recognized with Team Awards, presented with Major Athletic Awards
and enjoyed a video highlighting the many accomplishments of the past sports seasons.

Again this year the banquet was provided by Mrs. Gaudet, and Ms. Murphy and the Food and Nutrition Classes.
