Middle Years Intramural Sports Program for Grades 7 & 8

  • Students in grades seven (7) and eight (8) will have an opportunity to participate in the Yonkers Public Schools Middle Years Intramural Sports Program. Middle years students from every school may participate in athletic competition as members of school-based or multi-school teams. Young athletes will learn the fundamental skills and knowledge necessary to support an active, productive and healthy lifestyle. The program extends the District’s physical education instruction and the updated New York State Physical Education standards (see standards under Athletics and Physical Education on the district website) while also providing the opportunity, regardless of athletic skill, to participate in a team and leisure-time activity.

    Intramural sports are not part of the District’s interscholastic sports program.

    Participation in team sports:

    • Provides an opportunity to participate in athletic competition without regard for high performance skill or ability.
    • Provides physical activities in a safe and professionally supervised environment.
    • Nurtures healthy competition, enjoyment, fair play, and teamwork.
    • Enhances social interaction among students from neighboring schools.

    Intramural sports seasons are 6 - 8 weeks and include:

    Fall - Boys and Girls Soccer  

    Winter – Boys and Girls Basketball

    Spring - Boys and Girls Flag Football & Volleyball
