Sign-ups available for rec intramurals

Sign-ups for spring semester intramural sports have started at the Student Recreation and Wellness Center.

About 5,000 students a semester participate in intramural sports, said Dustin Lent, assistant intramural coordinator. He added that softball is the most popular sport in the spring.

“There’s a lot of benefits (to intramural sports),” Lent said. “You get to meet a lot of new people and you also get to get in your exercise.”

Other team sports include sand volleyball, flag football and soccer. Individual events like bowling, racquetball and table tennis are also offered. Play begins for most sports in late March or early April.

A more complete list of team events and entry dates can be found on the rec center’s Web site, Registration forms can be found at the rec center or can be downloaded from the Web site.
