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 the fifth through eighth grades. Emphasis is placed on participation and good sportsmanship. Students will participate in intramural competition within a 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 2 points and a tie 3 points. A cumulative total is kept throughout the school year and posted on a scoreboard in the upper school open space area and announced at school assemblies.

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