College can be stressful at time and students can be overwhelmed with work pressure. Fortunately, the Winter 2013 Intramural Line-up is the most exciting sport activities for CSUSB students to get involved in.
Students are encouraged to come in for an experience of these Intramural Sports such as volleyball, indoor soccer, basketball and tournaments. The Department of Athletics highly acknowledge the need of exercising for college students who are stressed about school.
Most students who have participated in this program have acquired many positive perspectives on themselves. However, this program is not only available to CSUSB students, but for anyone interested in play sports.
Brandon Landrum, who is currently a CSUSB freshman and has registered for the Basketball sport, took his time to address his experiences.
“The Intramural Sport has taught me how to better myself on the court,” said Landrum. “It was fun, competitive and a great experience. It was another best tool of networking. The best thing about it was the simple fact that not only students could play, anybody could. Therefore, I registered before becoming a freshman.”
For those who participate, the program is most likely to provide a safe environment for the student, equality and fairness. Students are urged to come experience this opportunity.
The Department provides two different leagues; the A league, which is the best team, the B league, which is mostly a bit competitive, yet more fun and enjoyable. Students are also allowed to develop their own free agent team for several competitions or tournaments.
After registering, you have the opportunity to select a team you can play against another team. Each game lasts at least one hour or so. The front desk provides a basketball, volleyball, soccer, tennis and dodgeball for you to play.
This program enables students to build a leadership, strong friendship and championship without any skills or talents to play.
Whether you are an experienced athlete or simply looking forward to learn a new sport, the department is always dedicated to provide the same skill level and interests. It is provided every quarter throughout the year.
Volleyball is on Mondays and Tuesdays from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. Indoor soccer is every Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Basketball is every Wednesday and Thursday from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. For the tournaments, tennis will be on Feb. 9 at 10 a.m. and dodgeball is on March 9 at 9 a.m. All of these events will be located at the Coussoulis Arena.
