Game On with Campus Intramurals

Want to play sports, but you're not on one of Vol State's athletic teams? No worries. That's what intramurals are for.

Fall intramurals have begun, which means you have the chance to play a game of flag football or soccer during the fall semester.

"It's going over very well this semester. It usually is better in the fall than in the spring," said Tabitha Sherrel, coordinator of student activities for the Office of Student Life and Diversity Initiatives.

It's free to join a team for any intramural sport, and games are played on the quad. Popularity is based on the sport, Sherrel said. This year, there are five teams for football and four teams for soccer.

Intramurals chairman Tim Moore said the program is essentially a series of pick-up games for people who just have a bit of fun on campus.

"It's for people who want to be active, and everybody that wants to come together for a game," he said.

While the initial intramurals meeting has already taken place, Sherrell said it's not too late to start a team. Paperwork can be picked up at the Office of Student Life and Diversity Initiatives, which is located in the Wood Campus Center. Teams also can get forms if they show up at the field during game times.

Even if you're not interested in joining a team, Moore said spectators are welcome.
