The Fall Intramural Program will begin with Indoor Soccer and be followed by Pickleball (a modified game of tennis)! Schedules will be posted.
Intramurals is a sport program for sixth graders who would like to play a variety of activities after school with their homerooms. The FALL intramural tournament will begin September 23, 2013. The Spring intramural tournament will begin April 9, 2014. Games are played after school from to Bus transportation is provided with prior written permission. IF STUDENTS ARE NOT PICKED UP ON TIME, AFTER THE ACTIVITY, THE CHILD WILL BE SENT HOME ON THE pm BUS. The fall activities will be Indoor Soccer and Pickleball ( a lead up game for Tennis which utilizes racquet skills and similar strategies), and the spring activities will be Volleyball and Table Tennis. Both girls and boys are encouraged to participate. A student is NOT required to attend all games.
The schedule will allow students and parents to see when each TEAM has an activity. Homerooms from each team (Red, White and Blue) will play together against homerooms from another team. If a student cannot attend their designated game time, they may attend another day instead. The schedule is very flexible to accomodate all student needs.
We will begin with Indoor Soccer. Intramural permission forms for the year should be given to Mrs. Rossi or your homeroom teacher by September 20, 2013. A PHYSICAL IS REQUIRED FOR A STUDENT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE INTRAMURAL PROGRAM. PHYSICAL FORMS ARE AVAILABLE FROM THE NURSE OR FROM MRS. ROSSI. PERMISSION FORMS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE ON THE VMS WEBSITE. If you do not turn in a permission form AND A PHYSICAL FORM, you may not participate. Only one permission form is necessary for the year. A SPRING registration will be held for those who did not register for the Fall season. Registration will be closed after the tournaments begin.
Each student will be responsible for signing up on a sign up sheet on the gym doors on the school day before the activity to confirm their attendance for an activity. The number of students will be limited for some activities.Remember to sign up!!!! Follow the schedule given out for each tournament. Listen for cancellations on the announcements. Immediately after school on the day of the activity, report to the gym and check in.
Homeroom teachers are encouraged to coach their homerooms, play with their team, remind them about their games, stimulate class spirit, and emphasize good sportsmanship.
