KPS Adds Ice Hockey and Sailing Teams


SUMMIT, NJ - Kent Place School has added two sports teams to its roster, a Varsity Sailing club -- which began this Fall season -- and a Varsity Ice Hockey team for the Winter season. 

“We are thrilled to be able to offer two new Athletic experiences for our students,” stated Head of School Susan C. Bosland. “Since our students have such a broad range of interests, it is our goal to provide as many opportunities for them as possible.” 

KPS Sailing is considered an Upper School Varsity club sport on campus, and is part of the New Jersey Interscholastic Sailing Association (NJISA).  The team competed in Raritan Bay Fall Fleet Race 2014 in September, and will compete in the Turkey Bowl Regatta in November.  

The team sails International Flying Junior Class boats (FJ), with one skipper and one crew member.  Pairs of two can rotate out for each race, and usually at least two pairs of girls will sail at each regatta.  All team members are required to wear school flags, or burgees as they are called in sailing, over their personal flotation devices.

The Varsity Ice Hockey team will play a full independent school schedule with neighboring teams in the Women’s Interscholastic Hockey League of the Mid-Atlantic (WIHLMA) during the winter Athletics season.  Kent Place School is currently not part of WIHLMA, but is petitioning to join the league for the 2015-16 school year.  The team will practice at Mennen Sports Arena in Morristown, or at Aspen Ice in Randolph.  

The team is a collaborative program with the New Jersey Colonials youth hockey organization, and the Colonials will offer “Learn to Skate” and “Instructional Ice Hockey Skill” programs through KPS Sports Academy.

The ice hockey season faces off on November 10.
