Athletics

Kaleidoscope Academy is proud to offer many co-curricular options. Athletics start for our 7th and 8th graders, while other clubs and extracurricular options are available for all students.

Athletics are a great way to connect with classmates and get involved with the Kaleidoscope community. Being part of a team also helps develop lifelong skills such as teamwork and time management.

Many athletic teams and clubs meet after school. To accommodate family and religious events all activities end before 5:30 on Wednesday evenings.

Here are our current sport offerings by season –

Fall Sports

Cross Country: Boys and Girls 7th and 8th Grade

Cross Country runs from August to October. There are six meets throughout the season.  Seventh graders race 2000M and eighth graders race 2800M.

Football – 7th and 8th Grade boys

Kaleidoscope is part of the Appleton Youth Football Association which combines players from several schools. Practice starts on July 31st and takes place at North High School. To be fully registered, 8th graders should submit all paperwork and the $40 athletic fee to the KA office and sign up at appletonyouthfootballassociation.com.

Softball – 7th and 8th Grade Girls

2018 Update:

7th/8th Grade Girls Softball tryouts are Monday, August 13 through Thursday, August 16 at 9:00 - 10:30. We will meet on the softball diamond at Wilson Middle School. All paperwork must be turned in by this date. Bring your own bat, helmet, mask and glove if you have them! Due to the fact that KA could not find a coach and Wilson's interest level was low, we will have a combined team this year. This may be a temporary solution if we have enough players to break into two teams.If you have questions, please connect with Ian Schaefer, schaeferian@aasd.k12.wi.us or (920)832-6296

8th Grade Girls Volleyball

Eighth grade begins in August ending in October (seventh grade runs from March to May). Practices begin Monday, Aug. 14 from 3:00-5:00 p.m. Once the season is underway, each week will consist of two games as well as after school practices.

Volleyball at the middle school level is an excellent opportunity for young ladies to experience the game for the first time as well as continue developing their skills for the high school level. We look forward to working with student athletes of all abilities!

Spring Sports

Track – Boys and Girls 7th and 8th Grade

Track and Field is open to both boys and girls in 7th and 8th grade each spring beginning near the end of March and continuing through mid-May. Success for the track and field student athlete is measured by personal improvement from meet to meet and throughout the entire season.

Coaches stress proper fundamentals in all of the events. We encourage all athletes to try new events in practice and in meets because one never knows what they will enjoy. Athletes have the opportunity to participate in team and individual events such as long jump, high jump, shot put, and discus; running events include sprints, hurdles, medley relays and long distance (800, 1600 meters).

Coaches Girls Track: Alex Molitor and Gretchen Richards
Coaches Boys Track: Michael Schroeder and Doug Sunke
