5th Grade Kickball Information
Dear 5th Grade Boys and Girls:
Come and join us for some before school fun and exercise! If you like kickball and want to play games against classmates, this program is for you.
The kickball intramural will be set up like a baseball 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 7-8 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. As we said earlier, once I have all of the permission slips returned I will divide the participants into teams and have a schedule prepared for you to follow.
The 5th Grade session will meet on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday mornings from 8:00-8:50 a.m. The program will run for 7-8 weeks. The season will begin on Monday, January 28th and is expected to end before spring break. Your child will receive a team and schedule by Friday, January 25th.
On game days the players will enter the building through the main entrance. If the weather is comfortable the students will be asked to wait outside until 8:00. At 8:00 I will greet them at the door and walk with them as a group to the gym. If the weather is uncooperative the students will be buzzed in upon their arrival and be asked to wait by the front office until 8:00. Please try to drop your children off as close to 8:00 as possible. USE ONLY THE FRONT ENTRANCE….DO NOT RING THE YMCA DOORBELL. Thank you.
I require participants wear either laced or velcro gym shoes. Hiking boots, loafers, sandals, and dress shoes are not allowed and please don’t allow children to wear shoes that can easily slip off their feet.
I am asking for all sign-ups to be completed online. To sign-up go to www.brooks.ipsd.org. From there, click on the Intramural Tab on the left hand side. Once there you will find a link that will take you to a sign-up/permission form. Fill out the form and click submit.
Please sign-up no later than Friday, January 18th. The teams and game schedule will be handed out to the players before Friday, January 25th and the schedules will also be available on the website once all of the teams have been made.
I look forward to a great Kickball season!
PLEASE SIGN-UP by FRIDAY, JANUARY 18th.
