District Intramural SportsGJPS Lion Mascot

(Held during the school day, traditionally during the lunch period or after school)

The term “intramural” simply means “within the walls.” Participation is always under the supervision and guidance of an intramural staff member and events are age-appropriate. Students may participate in a variety of activities including kickball, soccer, volleyball, basketball, and other sports. The intramural program is all-inclusive and open to every student. In addition to further developing a sense of community within the school, the intramural programs provide students an opportunity to further practice and internalize the skills, attitudes, and knowledge acquired in their physical education class.

For more information, contact your individual school’s athletic office or the respective coach/staff adviser.
