Intramural Sports

WHAT ARE INTRAMURALS?

Intramurals Sports Program is an on-campus after school sports program for 6th, 7th and 8th graders designed to introduce students to new sports and develop skills and sportsmanship in a fun, non-competitive or minimally competitive atmosphere.  All sports are co-ed.  A new sport will be offered every 4 to 5 weeks.  Students can participate in as many or few sports as they choose and they may begin at any point during the school year.  Please subscribe to our newsletter for intramural schedule and sport updates.  Sports may include, but are not limited to: Ultimate Frisbee, Basketball, Flag Football, Team Handball, Dodgeball, and Volleyball.

WHEN/WHERE:

M/W 3:00 – 4:00

FAQ’s

Are 6th, 7th,  and 8th graders all grouped together?
Yes.  Depending on participation throughout the year, all students may participate together and do the same activities. We try to keep the 6th graders in separate groups from the 7th and 8th graders, but depending on attendance numbers, sometimes it makes sense to combine them.  If participation supports scheduling 6th graders on separate days from 7th and 8th graders, a schedule change will be made.
 
Do you take attendance or sign the students in and out of the intramural program?
All Intramural sports are considered “drop in” programs. As such, it is not mandatory to attend each week. We do not take attendance, and students are not signed in and out at the end of the session.
May my child leave early?
The goal is to have students actively participate in the sessions. If they need/want to leave early, they may. They do not sign out when they leave.
 
Why don’t the intramural sports line up with the competitive sports, so if my child does not make a competitive team he can join that intramural sport?

We are very excited that ALL students will be able to participate in sports after school whether they make a competitive team or not. Due to field and court constraints, we cannot have intramurals and competitive sports doing the same sport simultaneously.

Where do we pick up our students?
The Bank Street gate is open after school and students can exit from that gate. 

Do I need to have a Boosters T-shirt?
No, a Boosters t-shirt is not required to participate in intramural sports.  However, please consider purchasing one to show school spirit and help support our programs! 

Will I be notified if the activity is canceled? How? When?
The school will notify parents via email as soon as possible in the event of cancelation for any reason.  We will also send an email to parents who have completed the intramurals permission form.  Please also be sure you are subscribed to the Boosters newsletter for up-to-date information

Who are the coaches?
A sports coordinator with experience running similar programs will be in charge. Depending upon the number of student attendees, we also may have parent or high school student volunteers helping out. 

What if I can’t go that day? Who do I notify?
No problem! No notification is required if a student cannot attend. 

Can parents attend the intramural events?
No. The intramural program is designed to be a fun, non-competitive after-school activity.  Given the size of the program, the school is unable to accommodate parents as spectators.
