APPRENTICE ACADEMY INTRAMURAL SPORTS LEAGUE
We are excited to announce that we will be starting an intramural sports program at Apprentice Academy High School. Intramurals are a way to have fun, get exercise, relieve stress, and meet new people! In our inaugural season we will begin with five sports but have hopes to expand to more sports over the years. This year the intramural program will be limited to the first eight teams that complete all the registration requirements. We do have hopes of expanding the program in the future. The students will be able to register as a team or individually (not both). Those students who register individually will be placed on a team.
The intramural program operates under our athletic department but separate from the inter-scholastic competitive teams. There are separate eligibility requirements and forms required. Any questions or inquiries should be directed to our athletic director, Rick Kenner, email@example.com.
All intramural sports this year will be coed and are recreational in nature. Should there be enough interest we may grow to have a separate competitive and/or gender specific league along with the recreational program. We are looking forward to this opportunity to get more students involved at our school and to see this program continue to grow.
2020-21 INTRAMURAL SPORTS
Intramural games will begin promptly at the designated starting time with no delay. All teams are expected to be ready to participate 10 minutes prior to game time. Teams will designate a Team Captain to make decisions for the team. All teams will be student led with no outside coaches. All games will be played at the scheduled time, date, and location. A team roster should be large enough so a team can accommodate the absence of one or more players. If a team or individual does not show up for an event, a forfeit will be recorded. If either teams or individuals do not show up, a double forfeit will be recorded and both teams will be provided with a loss for that event.
A maximum of eight teams will be able to participate in intramural volleyball. Teams will consist of a minimum of six players and a maximum of nine players. The format for each game will be 6 v 6 lasting 30 minutes. Registration deadline is 30 October 2020.
