Draper Park Middle School: Intramurals 2022-23
Draper Park Middle School’s intramural program aims to provide opportunities for middle school students to participate in school-sponsored healthy-lifestyle activities, engage in school, meet new friends, learn about fair play, increase leadership and teamwork skills, and have fun.
We sponsor four intramural sports/activities: basketball, chess, cross country, and soccer.
All students are welcome to participate in cross-country activities at the school level. Days and times of cross-country practices will be determined and shared. All DPMS cross-country runners are welcome to participate in the four-school regional meet to be held at 3:45 p.m. on Thursday, September 15th, 2022, at Indian Hills Middle School in preparation for the district meet. Our region (South) includes Albion, Indian Hills, and Eastmont middle schools.
The top three girl runners and top three boy runners from each grade at DPMS will participate in a culminating district-sponsored cross-country meet. The Canyons School District Intramural Cross-Country Meet will be held at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 8, 2022, at Jordan High School.
Please see Ms. Pedersen in room 2425 if you’d like more information about participating in the intramural cross-country program.
School chess play will begin on Wednesday, Aug 25, and will continue every Wednesday indefinitely, perhaps until the end of the year. They will meet in Mr. Collette’s classroom (2424). We welcome all beginners and experienced students to come play. There is no sign-up necessary. Just show up in Mr. Collette’s room on Wednesdays after school.
The top 6 players from Draper Park Middle School will be determined by a school-level tournament and will participate in the district-sponsored tournament scheduled at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 21, 2023, at Union Middle School.
All students are welcome to participate in intramural basketball at the school level. Teams will consist of 6th-, 7th-, and 8th-grade girls and boys teams. Open gym will begin in January of 2023. Draper Park will sponsor a school-wide tournament to determine which teams move on to the district-sponsored tournament. Teams will consist of up to 5 players and will be self-coached.
