Sports Blog: How to get the most out of intramural sports

From soccer and Frisbee to volleyball, basketball, dodgeball and flag football, I probably have at least 20 of these shirts in my closet. It’s safe to say that I love intramurals. So much so that I usually end up signing up to play at least two sports every semester. They’re a great way to get active and to meet new people. If you’re nervous about joining a league all on your own, don’t worry. Everyone who signs up individually usually get put on the same team, so you and your teammates will all be in the same boat. If you’re worried about […]
