6th Grade Intramural Basketball

Program Details

The goals of the intramural basketball program are to:

1) Have fun
2) Teach basketball fundamentals
3) Prepare athletes for middle school basketball

No athlete will be cut from the program. All students are welcome to join the intramural program, regardless of athletic ability or basketball skill.

The program will be overseen and ran by the Joplin School District. All coaches will be employees of the school district. Our middle school and high school basketball coaching staffs will be highly involved with the program.

The intramural basketball program will begin Tuesday, February 28, 2016 and conclude with a season ending tournament on Saturday, April 8, 2017.

The program will consist of practice or scrimmages two nights a week (normally on a Tuesday or Thursday) with the exception of the last week because of the Saturday tournament. See the 2017 schedule below for more information.

All practices and games (with the exemption of the Saturday tournament) will begin right after school at each middle school. Practices will end no later than 5:30. Parents will be responsible for arranging pick up of their student after practice.

Joplin Schools will provide your son/daughter with a reversible jersey for practices and games during the season. We ask that each athlete bring shorts and basketball shoes to each session.

If you are interested in your child participating in this program, please fill out the parent permission/emergency contact information sheet attached to this letter and return it to the office of the middle school your child attends. Furthermore, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 625-5242 or matthewhiatt@joplinschools.org.
