WESTERN MIDDLE SCHOOL
SPORTS PROGRAM 2011-12
The middle school sports program provides opportunities for students to participate in both the competitive and recreational arenas of sport.
PHILOSOPHY: One of the main objectives of the Middle School Intramurals is to provide every student with the opportunity to play and enjoy friendly activity under the supervision of certified staff. While the main focus is recreational, participants may practice game skills learned in physical education class. Activities which are not offered in regular physical education class are also available. These offerings may differ from school to school, and season to season as interest and participation dictate.
Some of the activities which may be offered are:
Soccer Basketball Badminton and Racquet Sports Flag football Volleyball Tennis Jogging/fitness walking Adventure Climbing
SCHEDULE: Intramurals are typically offered four days a week.
Physicals and permission forms are not required for participation in the Intramural Program.
PHILOSOPHY: The value of increased skills instruction, additional practice time, and interschool competition add to the growth and development of the middle school student. The middle school competitive program provides students with opportunities to nurture their competitive drive while maintaining a high standard of sportsmanship. Team practices and competition provide a forum which fosters respect for diverse athletic capabilities.
When necessary and feasible, the competitive program offers A and B level teams to maximize student participation. The sports which have been selected for this program complement the competitive opportunities throughout the Greenwich community, while considering limitations imposed by facilities, field space, transportation, and staffing. Athletes compete against teams in the Greenwich Middle Schools, private school teams, and selected regional teams as opportunities arise. Games will be officiated by qualified officials.
