Fransk said the number of intramural teams has grown from 47 last year to 72 currently.

The Intramural staff works hard to offer a well-rounded, competitive and recreational sports program to all students, faculty and staff. The goal is to help people live a more active lifestyle.

To meet the goal, the spring semester offers leagues, tournaments and one-day events. You can find tournaments for sports such as five-on-five basketball, inner tube water polo, three-on- three volleyball, dodge ball and many more. The one-day events include games such as poker, pitch, table tennis, wrestling and other choices.

To sign up you can stop by Cushing Room 119 intramural coordinator Scot Fransk’s office

Fransk says he would like the intramurals program to provide a positive outlet for students to maintain a healthy lifestyle and to help work out the stresses of being a student.
The intramural program has a free agent system for those who don’t have a group formed.

“We have a free agent system for people that want to play five-on-five basketball or other team sports, but don’t have a team,” Fransk said. “The way it works is we take your contact info down and find a team for you that is short a person. This has worked really well in the past.”

Intramurals are growing in popularity, Fransk said. “Last year for all the sports combined we had 47 teams. That number has grown to 72 teams this year."

“Our highlights for the spring semester are dodge ball and three-on-three volleyball, but you have to sign up fast because with the rise in participants, we are going to have to put a cap on the number of teams available.”

So if you find that you have some free time on your hands, swing past Fransk’s office and sign up for one of the sports or games you find interesting, whether it be an ongoing event or just one day that you want to be about having fun.
