We Need High School Intramurals
Original post made by Paul Losch on Mar 13, 2011
And let us think about most of the students who are not part of that cohort.
I remember when I was in college that intramural activities were a big part of my life on campus. My son is a PALY grad, and graduated from college 2 years ago, and he felt intramural activities were a key part of his college experience.
Is it time to develop an intermural program at Gunn and PALY?

Doesn't Palo Alto have youth sports programs like Little League and Pop Warner?

It's a great idea, but after the HS teams, then the youth teams (little league, njb, etc.) play, is there any gym time or space available? I know when I was in college, the intramural schedule went late into the night with games at midnight.

As stated above - the fields, gyms and pools are booked by the Varsity/JV teams. For example, 4 basketball teams (both genders and two teams each)...some of these teams don't get home until 8pm or later.
Perhaps they create a lunchtime league, but no practice or games after school.
