Extracurricular Activities

Intramural Sports

Cheyenne Mountain School District 5th and 6th grade elementary students compete against each other in boys' basketball and team handball, and girls' basketball and volleyball.  Boys' team handball takes place in September.  Girl's volley ball takes place in October/November.  Boys' basketball takes place in January/February, and Girls' basketball takes place in February/March.  All schools divide up the students into three squads (A, B and C), based on ability.  This way, the teams are as evenly matched as possible.

The focus of the Intramural Program is to teach basic skills for the sport, and teach and encourage sportsmanship.  The teams should be lead by the principal or coach to repeat the following pledge prior to each game:

"I pledge to play this game the best that I can, to respect my coaches, the opponents, the referees and the rules of the game.  I pledge to improve myself in sportsmanship and skills."

The following are the expectations we have of players and spectators:

Team members are to sit with their team during each game, even if it's not their squad currently playing.  This allows the students to be supporters of their classmates and learn how to cheer appropriately.  Spectators, including players, are expected to remain in the gym during the indoor sporting events.  The rest of the building is closed to all players and spectators.  Spectators are not to "coach" their child(ren) from the sidelines.

Remember, our goals are to teach basic skills and sportsmanship.  Come on out and enjoy the games.
