Intramural Practice and Bus Expectations

Dear parents,

The Lincoln Public Schools Middle Level Intramural Activities are provided with the following intent:

  • To encourage student athletes to conduct themselves in a manner which brings credit to themselves and their schools.
  • To expand student athletes awareness of various activities through inclusive exploration regardless of individual strengths or needs.
  • To apply newly acquired skills through activities that require both individual and group participation/cooperation.
  • To promote the development of self-discipline, self-esteem, and self-worth.
  • To promote and shape the proper perspective of losing and winning.

In an effort to provide a practice and competition environment where coaches can support student-athlete development, and in working with the Schoo Administration and the LPS Transportation Department, the following expectations have been established.

Schoo Middle School students participating in an intramural practice or competition are expected to:

  • Be respectful to all adults affiliated with LPS, including coaches, teachers, administration, transportation and custodial staff.
  • Be active participants in practice, following coach’s instructions.
  • Be present in the practice area as designated by the coach, for the duration of the practice.
  • Dress appropriately for activity as directed by coaches.
  • Refrain from using profanity.
  • Represent Schoo Middle School in a positive manner at all competitions.

Additionally, in an effort to provide a safe means of transportation for all intramural participants, students riding the activity bus are expected to:

  • Load the bus calmly, sharing seats when necessary.
  • Remain seated for the duration of the bus ride.
  • Follow all directions given by bus driver.
  • Refrain from using profanity.

In order to assist the transportation department in establishing a safe and orderly bus environment, coaches will load their teams onto the activity bus after practice.  Teams may alternate the order on which they load, allowing students to take turns sitting in the front and back of the bus.

Failing to meet practice, competition or bus expectations for the first time will result in the student-athlete not participating in the next practice.  A second offense will result in the loss of the next competition.  A third offense will result in the student being dismissed from the team for the remainder of the season.
