Matt Mulholland, Intramural Sports Director
The intramural sports program differs from traditional interscholastic sports in that it prioritizes inclusion and enjoyment over competition. The intramural program at Granite Mountain will create a great opportunity for 5th and 6th graders to grow as individuals and to learn about fitness. Intramural athletics, unlike competitive athletics, are open to all students, regardless of the student’s ability and/or knowledge. In addition, family and community participation will be a fundamental part of our program as well. Our intramural sports program will consist of basketball, volleyball, wrestling, cross country, soccer, flag football, indoor hockey, and track.
Tentative dates and options for the sports seasons are as follows:
Fall Season - August -September | Coed Flag Football and Coed Volleyball
Winter 1 Season – October -November | Boys and Girls Basketball
Winter 2 Season – January – February | Coed Hockey
Spring Season – February – April | Coed Soccer
Intramural sports in the Prescott Unified School District are set up on a pay-to-play basis. The current fee is $40 for each sport. The fee is to be paid before the first game for all sports.
**Students wishing to participate in cross country, wrestling, and/or track will be able to do so with the Mile High teams. Granite Mountain students will be bused to Mile High for these sports. The pay-to-play fee for these sports teams is $110 per sport.
For interscholastic contact sports (wrestling), it is necessary for each student to have a medical release form (physical) completed by your doctor. All sports require medical insurance and the school-supplied parental permission form.
Athletes are also required to read and sign the Code of Conduct for Student Athletes, and parents must read and sign the Code of Conduct for Parents/Guardians. These codes are to be followed at all practices and games. More specific information will be given during skills assessment for each sport.
