4th and 5th Grade Soccer Intramurals
Dear 4th and 5th Grade Boys and Girls:
Come and join us for some before and after school fun and exercise! If you like soccer and want to play games against classmates, this program is for you.
The soccer intramural will be set up like a real soccer season. The students who sign up will be divided into teams. A schedule will be developed for each team which means your child will not come on one specific day each week for 8 weeks but rather their game day may switch each week (i.e. “Team 1” may play on Tuesday the first week but may play on Monday of the second week). Your child may also play on 2 days in one week. Your child will have to be responsible for knowing what day he/she is scheduled to play on each week and be present on the correct day. The success of this program revolves around attendance. It is important that your child be present for all of their games. Once the sign-up period is over I will divide the participants into teams and have a schedule prepared for you to follow. We will play a 5-6 week regular season in which each team will have a chance to play against the other teams in the league. After the regular season we will have a 1-2 week “Brooks World Cup”. This intramural is designed to give students an idea of what organized sports is like in a fun and non-threatening atmosphere.
The 4th Grade session will meet on Monday, Tuesday or Friday mornings from 8:00-8:50 a.m. The program will run for 8 weeks. The dates of the 4th Grade session will be September 24, 25, 28, October 1, 2, 5, 8, 9, 12, 15, 16, 19, 22, 23, 29, 30, November 2, 5, 6, 9, 12, 13 and 16 (Please check the schedule when it comes home). Students can be dropped off outside door #2.
The 5th Grade session will meet on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday after school from 3:40-4:30 pm. The program will run for 6 weeks. The dates of the 5th Grade session will be September 24, 25, 26, October 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, 24, 29, 30, November 5, 6, 7, 12, 13 and 14 (Please check the schedule when it comes home). Also, please be punctual in picking your child up at 4:30. Students can be picked up outside door #2
I require that participants wear either laced or velcro gym shoes. Hiking boots, loafers, sandals, and dress shoes are not allowed. I am asking for all sign-ups to be completed online. Please go to the Brooks home page at www.brooks.ipsd.org. Once on the home page click on the “Faculty and Staff” Tab. Find and click on my name “Brad Persson”. This will take you to my google page where you will find a tab for intramurals. Click on the intramural page then use the 4th or 5th grade link to sign your child up for soccer. After the teams are set and the schedule is made the schedule will be posted on my google page. Please sign your child up by FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14th. I look forward to seeing you there!
