Participate in Intramurals through TRAC

By Courtney Westlake

Coming to college doesn't mean you have to give up on competitive sports! Between the usual sports like basketball and more unusual activities like kickball, intramurals at UIS offers something for everyone.

"Intramurals is an easy way to play solo or get a team together and meet new people," said Mike Czarny, a UIS student and intramurals staff member. "All skill levels are welcome."

Signing up for an intramural activity or team is simple - stop by the rec sports office across from the front desk at TRAC to pick up a roster card and submit the completed roster card by the deadline on entry day, said Aimee Winebaugh, another IM staff member. Captains or team reps must attend the captain meeting.

"Bring your I-card to all events to check in with the intramural supervisor," said IM staff Alex Diaz.

The first opportunity to play in an intramural event is Sunday, August 30 at 4 p.m. at the Rec Park softball fields for the Welcome Week Kickball Tournament, noted Kari Elliott, IM staff.

"Roster cards are also now available for intramural bocce, softball and sand volleyball," she said.

Other opportunities for intramural play include flag football and powder puff flag football, soccer, pickleball, badminton, basketball and more. Check out the intramurals schedule for this fall here. There are also employment opportunities available for students who want to referee or become involved in other aspects of intramurals on campus.

"Don't just spectate- participate in intramurals for fun, fitness and friends," encouraged IM staff member Raeann Anderson.
