This semester has brought a fresh new wave of intramural activities, including Wacky Wednesdays, a number of league events and even the first-ever Halo tournament in Durham Hall. We can expect this wave to build momentum into next semester.
If intramurals at Southern Virginia have a theme, that theme is simply student involvement. At the core, intramurals are about allowing students to get involved on campus without a heavy time commitment. They give students the opportunity to do something fun, competitive and team-oriented outside the classroom. Intramurals also allow students to try something new just for the enjoyment. And if your team wins, that’s cool too.
Since a few weeks into September, intramurals have gathered students, staff and faculty to compete in several leagues and individual events. The semester started off with leagues in grass volleyball and badminton, followed currently by futsal and ultimate Frisbee, with individual events like ping-pong and Halo scattered in between. Next semester, look for flag football, 3-on-3 basketball, dodge ball, more grass volleyball and a number of new individual events.
Whether you have ten hours or thirty minutes, whether you’re a champion athlete or a first-timer, you can get involved. Come and play.
