Intramural Sports

Due to the Covid-19 surge, many after school activities–including Intramurals–will be postponed while the administration evaluates and considers safety requirements. The Athletic Booster Club and SPMS administration will work together to determine a new start date for Intramurals after a one or two week evaluation period.

FAQ’s

Is the program for the 7th and 8th graders the same as the program for the 6th graders?
Yes. We will be offering the same sports program each month for both groups.
 
If I am a 7th or 8th grader but I cannot attend on Mondays and Wednesdays, may my child attend on Tuesdays and Thursdays?
No. For the foreseeable future, we are keeping the 6th graders in one group and the 7th and 8th in a separate group. Sixth graders attend Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:45 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. and 7th and 8th graders attend Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:45 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
 
Do you sign the students in and out of the intramural program?
Attendance is taken at the beginning of each session for SPMS contract tracing purposes only. It is a “drop in” program and as such not mandatory to attend each week. Students are also not signed 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. We tried to line up the seasons but due to field and court constraints, we scheduled the intramural program to complement – not compete with – the competitive sports.  There would not be enough room on the courts or fields to run the same competitive sport as the exact same time/exact same season as its intramural offering – especially as coaches run practices for their competitive teams and the Booster Club has expanded the intramural program to provide opportunities for students in all grades. We have tried to line them up as close as possible, but the guide is field and court usage and available space at the Middle School.
