Make way for another exciting year with the annual intramural leagues. Designed with all the student body in mind, these programs have all kinds of sporting activities that can suit the taste of even the pickiest of Mercer sports enthusiasts.
Coming this fall, Mercer offers season-long leagues of soccer, football and volleyball. If that weren’t enough, the Intramurals program also offers tournaments of three-on-three basketball, ultimate Frisbee, tennis, table tennis, and the sport that tells of the tale of underdogs, dodgeball.
As the program has developed through the years, it is now required for any participating members to sign up for an account on IMleagues.com before participating in these events. The team captains can sign up and create his/her team by visiting the website as well. Once a team has been created, a captain’s meeting will be held before the start of the season in order to explain the overall rules and regulations of the event. Once teams have been briefed by their team captain’s on how the sport and leagues are to be played, games will begin.
To go along with the obvious camaraderie that intramurals bring, the events carry a sense of competition and edge like nothing else. Whether it is the friends becoming foes or foes becoming friends, there is nothing like stepping onto a field or court a few times a week with peers that sit alongside us in classrooms.
This fall, whether you are a fan of futbol or American football, one thing is entirely certain, days are going to come, days or going to go, games will be played and champions will be crowned.
Sign up for intramurals today at IMleagues.com and take a step closer to garnering the all-desired championship t-shirts.
