Intramurals help students connect, collaborate and be engaged with school

Austin, a seventh grader, was getting bored at home during COVID, so he decided to join the intramural sports program at his school, Cache La Poudre Middle School.

“I was able to meet people from different grade-levels and build new friendships,” said Austin, who participated in whiffle ball and basketball summer camp. 

It was easy making new friends, Austin said, because everyone wanted to connect after being stuck at home during the pandemic. Being with people again and playing sports was his favorite part of the experience.
