REGISTRATION AND FEES:

Please register your son online by Friday, October 25th.

The cost to play Intramural Basketball is $225.00 and will be billed to your PDS account. This fee will help pay for the league expenses, referees, team pictures, and uniforms that the boys will keep. Any boy who has not previously submitted a physical and the necessary concussion and cardiac arrest forms needs to do so before the first practice. All forms can be turned in to the school nurse.

LEAGUE

After everyone has signed up, the players will be divided up evenly and put on a team with one of the PDS coaches. They will play only PDS teams. There will be three separate leagues (4th Grade League, 5th Grade League, and 6th Grade League).

SCHEDULES

The complete schedule for all practices and games, with all times and dates, will be out soon. Each team will have one or two activities a week beginning the first week of December.

The 4th Grade League will participate on most, but not all, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The 5th Grade League and the 6th Grade League will participate on most, but not all, Wednesdays and Fridays.

PDS uses an off-campus filter called Captive Portal, which your son will have to sign into once every five days. While we showed your son how to do this, we wanted you to know the process too.

When your son launches his internet (Chrome, Safari, or Firefox), a blue screen, with "Captive Portal" will appear. Skip over the two boxes for username and password. Your son will need to click the link titled, "Google Auth,” which appears towards the bottom of that screen. Once he clicks on the link, he will be prompted to enter his PDS Gmail. (Your son should have a sticker in his AB with this information. Most accounts follow the scheme: first name + first letter of last name + 3 numbers @pdsmemphis.org. Ex: charlest465@pdsmemphis.org)

The next screen will have him enter his email password. (This is his AR password, plus his PDS graduation year. 6th graders use 2019, 5th graders use 20 and 4th graders use 21. Ex: hatsky2018 or hatsky19. This password is also located on his sticker.) He will have to click "Next" two times to finish the authentication process. Once he is done, his home internet connection will work. While this process will be repeated every five days, it should only take a minute to complete.
