Intramural Sports are a fun way for the “average Joe” to participate in sports that they enjoy or want to try in their free time.
The Student Recreation & Fitness Center (Rec Center) offers flag football, volleyball, indoor and outdoor soccer, dodgeball, basketball and softball, all of which are co-ed.
CSUSB offers two leagues of intramural sports, an independent league and a fraternity league.
The fraternity league offers the same sports as the independent league and features members of Sigma Chi, Delta Sigma Phi, Sigma Phi Epsilon and Sigma Nu.
Basketball is played with five players for each team and consists of two 20 minute halves.
Dodgeball is played with six players per team and in a “best-of-nine games” format.
The first team to win five games gets the official win.
Flag football is played with seven players as is outdoor soccer.
Indoor soccer has a maximum of four players, goalie included, and is played on the basketball court in the Rec Center.
Volleyball has a two player minimum and a maximum of six players.
Softball games go seven innings, or one hour, whichever occurs first.
Intramural Sports are played in the fall, winter, and spring quarters, allowing for the opportunity to play and learn about different sports throughout the course of the school year.
There is no cost to join an intramural sports team as a free agent or to start your own team, a perk of being a member of the Rec Center.
