Intramural sport sign-ups are available Winter quarter in the recreation center or online for all CSUSB students.
Students can now enroll in sports such as basketball, volleyball and indoor-soccer online though the school website or in person at the recreation center.
Registration will begin Tuesday, Jan. 21 and will continue until the week of finals.
Games will begin during the third week of January and continue up until the last official school week.
Teams can be formed with up to three to ten members depending on the sport they chose to enroll.
Students can also be placed on a team if they are not able to create one.
This program gives students an opportunity to participate in sports. Intramural sports allow students to be in a relaxed and friendly environment with other members of the school community.
This offers students the chance to engage in physical activities without being enrolled in a class section.
Intramural sports give students the flexibility and the convenience of playing a sport that they are interested in during a time period suitable for anyone.
Students can interact and network with others while at school.
The Intramural sports program offers a fun, safe, and competitive atmosphere for students interested in participating. Students can engage in leadership and team building training through the participation of sports.
“I wanted to play because I had just transferred and I wanted to get out and meet new people,” said student Serena Winston.
“It was also a way for me to release stress and have fun,” continued Winston.
The student organized league will take place on campus inside the recreation center twice a week during the winter quarter. Games will begin Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday starting at 8p.m.
Sports like volleyball are offered to both men and women in a competitive and noncompetitive setting.
Games will be monitored and facilitated by an official sports referee. Scores, stats and highlights will be available for viewing online after the games have occurred.
At the end of the Winter quarter, the winning teams will receive a team prize and have their team photo displayed at the recreation center. Students who would like to participate and play non competitively are still encouraged to enroll in the program.
A portion of the facility and time will be designated for students who would like to participate in a noncompetitive setting with other students. This is designed for those who would like to engage in sports for pleasure during their time of leisure.
Student Director Mark Esho advises students to sign up as soon as possible.
“All students are welcome to come and participate in any of the sports that we are offering this quarter.
Students can utilize the schools facility and engage in a fun and safe setting”, said Esho.
Students can take advantage of the state-of-the-art gym that the campus provides. This program is a great way to relieve stress and engage in physical activities with friends and others.
Registration has started and students are encouraged to sign up online or at the recreation center.
