Kickball Intramurals for Grades 3-5
Each spring, all students in grades 3-5 are invited to participate in our Intramural Kickball League. The 2018-19 season marks the 53-year anniversary of this special SHS tradition.
Here's how it works:
Participants. Grades 3-5 participate simply by signing up. There are no cuts. All students come to cheer on their friends and friendship partners and eat a Big Stick Cherry Pineapple Popsicle (we'll get to that later).
Basics. There are sign-ups, then teams are created. Fifth graders volunteer to be captains, and draft from the pool of participants. The captains choose a team name and create a lineup for each game. There are no practices, jerseys or fancy team banners.
Refs. Eighth grade volunteers to referee the games. They love the whistles.
Schedule. Games are played from 3:10 - 4 p.m. most days, and 1:55 - 2:45 p.m. on Wednesdays. See the schedule below.
Championship game. The two teams with the best records go head to head in a Championship Game.
What's the deal with the milk window? From a parent's perspective, it's a school fundraiser with a wide selection of ice cream, soda and candy that costs 50 cents or $1. From a kid's perspective, it's an afternoon sugar rush.
Prize. Mostly bragging rights, but the kids also get a cool ribbon.
