On Friday, September 1, 2017, Kingsport City Schools launched its latest effort to more effectively communicate with stakeholders, as the KCS Athletics Website went live. This one-stop shop for all-things athletics is a joint project of the KCS Athletics and Communications departments, and serves to keep our community informed regarding all aspects of the district’s athletics programs.
Located at http://athletics.k12k.com/, the site will keep fans of our student-athletes and programs up to date on schedules, results, and so much more. This week, the Saturday Six takes a look at the new website and highlights key aspects of this new communications tool!
- It’s not just about Dobyns-Bennett! Sure, the new site has all the information related to the Indians athletics programs, but it also keeps you up to speed on Sevier and Robinson athletics, as well. We feel strongly that we are truly “One Tribe,” and the website is a key component to sharing information about the entire district athletics program. As the KCS Athletics Director Larry Shively often states, “All arrows are pointing in the same direction!”
- On the hunt for a schedule of games or event details? The website provides full team schedules, as well as a calendar with daily event listings. Have a free afternoon and looking for something to do? Check out the “Upcoming Events” calendar and come support the Tribe!
- Each KCS athletic team now has it’s own home on the web. Team pages include team and coach photos, schedules, rosters, and more! Find your favorite D-B, Robinson, or Sevier team and follow their progress all season long!
- Do you have an athlete and need a medical authorization form or other athletics paperwork? The website has you covered! All of those necessary documents are just a click away, under the “Athletic Forms” tab. Downloadable PDFs are available 24/7, whenever you might need them!
- Looking for a historical fact about one of our athletics teams? Ever wonder, for instance, how the D-B football team fared in 1945? The KCS Athletics website has you covered! The archive of records is impressive, and serves as a historical vault for information. And in case you are now curious, Ed Shockey’s Tribe went 10-0 in 1945 and won the State Championship!
- Need quick information regarding Athletics social media, tickets, or facilities? The “Quick Links” section is a handy place to get fast information you might need. Keep this section handy when looking for directions to a game or for info on when that football season ticket payment is due!
We hope you will enjoy the new KCS Athletics website and use it to stay connected with our student athletes. It’s one more way we are striving to better engage our families and community… #RollTribe!
