Season Preview and Preparation 08.11.14
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
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.
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.
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
Here for a draft version of the 2014 Fall Gym Schedule
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.
