NIHF STEM Intramural Program
The Intramural Soccer Season begins on Tuesday, May 1st immediately after school until 4:30 and will conclude on Wednesday, May 23rd. Fifth and 6th grade games will be held on Tuesdays and 7th and 8th grade games on Wednesdays. Parent pick up for 5th grade learners and 7th grade learners will be a the front entrance and parent pick up for 6th and 8th learners will be at the rear entrance. If siblings or carpool mates are playing on the same day and in are different grades, these learners should report to the rear entrance for parent pick up
The philosophy of the NIHF STEM Intramural Program is to provide learners an opportunity to participate in activities "without a win at all cost atmosphere." Learners are able to develop or refine skills in a variety of activities. NIHF STEM intramural program adds a new dimension to the learner’s education by improving self-esteem, stimulating other interests, and providing learners the opportunity to achieve individual and team goals. While developing a sense of sportsmanship and fair play, they acquire knowledge and skills required for the future.
The goals of the NIHF STEM school intramural program are:
- to have fun
- to provide an opportunity for learners to develop sportsmanship and fair play
- to provide instruction and reinforce skills learned in the physical education program
- to promote an understanding and insight into the value of physical fitness for a healthy lifestyle
- to encourage all learners to participate
- to give learners an opportunity to have social interaction in a constructive environment
Each learner must also meet certain behavioral standards in order to participate. A learner will not be eligible to participate if he/she is assigned an out of -school suspension or after school detention on the day intramurals is taking place. A learner will lose his/her eligibility for the remainder of that season is he/she has been given out of school suspension. Learners will be eligible to participate during the next season of activities.
In order to fulfill our philosophy of having the maximum number of participants enjoy success in recreational activities we must create and adhere to general behavior guidelines for all intramural participants.
1. Learners will have the opportunity to participate in any scheduled activity, regardless of skill level.
2. Learners will be able to choose their own teams and play grade appropriate opponents in various games and activity.
3. Learners will display appropriate cooperation and sportsmanship at all times. AT NO TIME WILL RUDE OR INAPPROPRIATE COMMENTS BE TOLERATED. Learners are to encourage rather than criticize or discourage others. ANY PHYSICAL CONFRONTATIONS WILL BE DEALT WITH SEVERELY.
