Blue-Gold Intramural Program

Blue-Gold Intramural Program

The Blue-Gold intramural program is a part of the physical education curriculum. The purpose of the intramural program is to provide athletic competition for every student in fifth through eighth grade. Emphasis is placed on participation and good sportsmanship. Students participate in intramural competition within each sports unit. Competition may be scheduled each week or at the end of a unit. The physical education teachers place each student on either the Blue or Gold team at the beginning of the fifth grade year. Siblings and children of alumni are placed on the same team as their family.

All other students are placed on a Blue or Gold team in an attempt to balance the teams according to the number of players and their ability levels. When a competition is held, students earn points for their team according to the outcome of the contest. A win is worth 5 points, a loss of 2 points, and a tie of 3 points. A cumulative total is kept throughout the school year, posted on a scoreboard in the middle school open space area, and announced at school assemblies.

Special events include the Turkey Bowl Competition (which takes place the week before Thanksgiving) and the Blue-Gold Track Meet. Contests have included Australian Long Base, Team Handball, Volleyball, Soccer and Flag Football. Special event competitions earn extra points for each team, with the end of the year Blue-Gold Track Meet often deciding the overall winner for the year as students earn several hundred points for their teams.

 

Captains and Co-Captains

Each year, the students in each grade vote to select a team captain and co-captain for the boys and girls in their class. Captain and co-captain responsibilities include:

  • He or she will go out of his or her way to invite a withdrawn classmate into an activity.
  • He or she will try to make all students on the team feel needed and part of the team.
  • He or she will listen with respect and patience when students with different ideas are speaking.
  • He or she promotes friendly relations with all members of the team and opponents.
  • He or she is fair.
  • He or she sets a good example of sportsmanship for the team.
  • He or she is prepared with a team list of positions on Blue/Gold day.
  • He or she will lead warm-ups and exercises.
  • He or she will act as a liaison between the team and teacher.
  • He or she will exhibit sound judgment in making decisions.
