Intramural Sports is a fun program offered by the Rec Center completely free for all CSUSB students and Student Recreation and Fitness Center members.
If you have ever played sports before and want to enhance your skills you can join as a free agent, or if you and your friends are just looking in to trying something new, Intramurals offers a variety of different sports for you to enjoy.
In a press release, Rec Center coordinators said, “We are dedicated to providing our participants enjoyable, innovative and safe activities for all skill levels and interests.”
Recently you may have seen the Intramurals booth located at Late Night With Rec Sports, or if you went inside you were able to preview what sports were offered, as well as what the facility itself had to offer.
This year Intramurals is definitely hoping to host more tournaments during the day and on the weekends.
“Since this is a commuter campus, we are trying to find more ways to [cater] to those students who do not commute and go home on the weekends, ” said Richard Dorado who works for Intramural Sports at the Rec Center.
The Women’s Indoor Soccer league is relatively new and will be hosting tournaments as well to offer women a chance to enjoy in the competitiveness.
They want to host more tournaments for people to compete in and introduce more students to as a way to stay fit, enjoy time with friends, and most importantly, have fun.
