It’s time for intramural sports season to begin at ABAC and the ABAC Recreation Department is looking for teams interested in competing. The intramural season is broken down into two phases per semester. A new set of sports different from the ones in the fall semester will be played in spring 2020.
Phase one of fall intramural sports season will include the following sports: coed basketball, men’s flag football, coed softball, men’s softball and beach volleyball. “If you were an athlete in high school and want to still compete with and against people, this gives you a chance to do that,” said Jason Pace, ABAC Recreational Sports Director.
Registration to compete in the league will end Aug. 28. Teams will start competing Sept. 3 after Labor Day Weekend.
Phase two registration starts Oct. 1 and ends Oct. 6. The following sports that will be played in phase two are blitzball, golf (four man scramble), indoor volleyball, kickball, men’s basketball, soccer and tennis. The phase two season starts with the first games on Oct. 21. Intramural sports can be a great way for students to meet each other says Pace.
“The social interaction and getting to know your fellow classmates and students is good,” said Pace. “It also gives students some physical benefits and the chance to get outside and be active. That helps with a student’s overall wellbeing and relieves stress.” Most teams sign up last minute, but Pace encourages interested students to register as soon as possible before phase one registration comes to an end.
