Top Athletic Programs and Swimming Lessons in Metairie
At Kehoe-France, students can choose from a variety of sports, giving them the freedom to pursue multiple athletic interests.
Our students don’t have to choose between academic success and sports achievement—KF Pioneers can be great students and great athletes.
The Kehoe-France athletics program strives to provide students in 4th through 7th grade the opportunity to participate in team sports, both through intramural and league play, competing against other schools. Alongside sports practices and athletic competitions, we also offer the finest swimming lessons in Metairie.
The sports program at Kehoe-France helps students improve their motor skills, encourages better health through physical fitness, and develops self-discipline and an understanding of the value of teamwork. We believe that the best instruction is combined with wholesome recreation that enables the development of a well-trained mind, a healthy body, and appropriate social values.
Kehoe-France baseball has been a very successful program. Boys from 4th-7th grade compete against other private Elementary schools in the Greater New Orleans area.
Our season runs from April to May and it’s a great warmup for a summer of baseball. Our coaches work hard every year to teach the game, which has led to many successful winning seasons.
Competing as a new albeit formidable team, Kehoe-France’s Bowling Team competed in the Metro League Bowling Championships in the spring of 2019 and earned a first-place finish in one of the three main heats before ultimately placing fourth place overall out of more than twelve competing teams.
This was a remarkable accomplishment considering the fact that the team was virtually all brand new to the sport of Bowling, but Pioneers are risk-takers, and they have paved the way for future teams who are sure to have just as much success!
Softball is an all-girls interscholastic sport that has only been played at Kehoe-France since 2013. Our interscholastic team consists of one large team of girls from fourth grade through seventh grade.
The season lasts approximately two months from mid-March to mid-May. Practices are held two days a week after school. During pre-season preparation, a great deal of time is spent on fundamentals and working together. Most of our fundamental skill training is spent focusing on good hand-eye coordination (catching and pitching), hitting, fielding, base running, and conditioning. Team camaraderie and communication are vital for proper field play.
The season finishes with a week-long tournament where each team must triumph over a number of opponents in order to be named the winner of the Metro-League.
In the Spring of 2016, we ended a fantastic season as runner-up in the Metro-League.
