I have been attending budget forums.
In 2000-2001 Irvington had 46 teams & 58 coaches. (district size: roughly 1900)
In 2008-2009, with declining enrollments, we have 64 teams & 77 coaches.
64 teams, 77 coaches, and no intramural sports to speak of.*
I wonder how Catholic schools manage to provide intramural athletics for all their kids on those shoestring budgets they've got?
Someone should look into it.
* I'm pretty sure we have no intramural sports at the high school at all. The PTSA is funding a new intramural program at the middle school. I love our PTSA. I've rejoined.
