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 participate in four intramural sports/activities: basketball, chess, cross country, and soccer. To ensure the health and safety of students during specific Covid risk phases, information may be subject to change. We will post and advertise any updates as soon as they are available, including the practice times and locations and the contact information of coaches.
CROSS COUNTRY (Coaches–Harrison, Pedersen, Rothert):
- Practices: Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from August 31-October 8
- Approximately 2:45-3:45 p.m.

All students are welcome to participate in cross-country activities at the school level. Days and times of cross-country practices are Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 2:45 to 3:45ish. To reduce the size of crowds, students will be assigned one day to practice each week with a group; they are encouraged to practice on their own for the rest of the week. Wellness and temperature checks will be conducted at the beginning of each practice, and students should decline participation if they are experiencing any potential Covid symptoms.
All DPMS cross-country runners are also invited to participate in the four-school regional meet to be held at 3:45 p.m. on Thursday, September 17, 2020, at Mount Jordan 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 10, 2020, at Union Middle School.
