The ACPS intramural program introduces middle school students to the rules of various sports. Experienced coaches help to foster skill development in a comfortable and non-competitive environment. The school year is divided into three athletic seasons — fall, winter and spring — furnishing many opportunities for involvement at various skill levels. Teamwork, skill development, self-discipline, sportsmanship and commitment are important elements in all of the intramural sports. The program may include some scrimmages with students in the intramural programs of ACPS neighboring middle schools. All sports run on their specific date from 3:15 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Free transportation is provided at 4:30 p.m. All students will be required to wear proper shoes for participation and will have the opportunity to change into PE type clothing if they choose.
