With a new school year underway, numerous students participating on campus teams are already on route to championship titles, including those involved with intramurals.
According to recreation and athletics services, intramurals are a great way for students to be involved in a sport and stay active without an overwhelming time commitment.
“The aim of intramurals is to create, among all participants, a positive attitude toward the necessity of active participation in physical activity,” the organization said on its website.
Intramurals are open to any full- or part-time student enrolled at the University of Regina and are simply about playing the game.
“Involvement in the campus recreation program is based upon participation and not on the concept of winning at all costs,” the site said. “The program is based upon ideals that reflect fair play, respect for rules and officials, co-operation and teamwork, all of which are positive attributes toward sport, recreation and life in the professional community.”
Sign-up deadlines are already fast approaching for the fall season. Registrations for fall mixed outdoor sports including soccer, ultimate, slo-pitch and men’s/women’s flag football are to be due Sept. 15 at 2 p.m., while registrations for all indoor fall sports – innertube waterpolo, men’s/women’s three-on-three basketball and volleyball and five-on-five basketball and six-on-six volleyball – are due Sept. 20 at 2 p.m.
Fall/winter sports are to include men’s floor hockey, men’s/women’s indoor flag football and mixed indoor soccer and ultimate. In the winter, sports to be offered are innertube waterpolo, women’s floor hockey, men/women’s basketball and mixed curling and volleyball. Softball and men’s/women’s basketball are to be offered in the summer.
“Student can sign up as an individual or as a team at the recreation and athletic services office,” said Adam Resson, floor hockey and flag football supervisor.
