    Frequently Asked Questions

     
    Q:  What is the difference between Interscholastic and Intramural sports?
     
    A:  Interscholastic sports are where our student-athletes compete against other middle schools. Seasons usually last 8-9 weeks and students practice daily. Intramural sports only compete against other classmates from Derby. Practices are usually held 3 times a week before or after school.
     
    Tennis Club operates as an interscholastic sport in that athletes in all grades usually practice every day at the Birmingham Racquet Club. However, only 7th and 8th grade will compete against other schools.
     
    Q:  When and where will I get specific information about each sport?
     
    A.  Before each season, check for information on this website, in the Derby Enews that is emailed home on Friday, and from your child.
