Intramurals are ‘on the list’ for Cabrini students

Participating in intramural sports at Cabrini College is a great way to have fun and get some exercise at the same time.  Cabrini offers several types of intramural sports including volleyball, dodge ball, basketball, flag football, kickball, softball, indoor and outdoor soccer and wiffleball.  Anyone could sign up to be a part of these teams.

There is no need to worry about making the team.  This is the best part about intramural sports because tryouts are nonexistent.  Highly developed skills and years of experience aren’t necessary to participate in these sports.

It is very easy to begin your own intramural sports team at Cabrini.  A group of friends could get together and decide to form an intramural sports team of their choice.  With the help of Orlin Jespersen, the assistant director of recreation at the Dixon center, many intramural sports teams have been formed.

“I played high school football and always loved playing sports so me, nick and a few others got together and started up a flag football team through Orlin Jesperson the director of intramurals,” Ryan Bunda, sophomore criminology major, said.

Intramural sports provide students with the option of being physically active but not having the stresses of a constant practice schedule and weekly games that come with regulated team sports.

Participating in intramural sports at Cabrini can also be a great way to meet new people.  The pressure of a coach and teammates is far less prevalent in intramural sports, making it easier to talk to people and to get to know people.

“Flag football has been like a stress reliever for me at school. It comes in handy because I don’t have enough time to play a school sport so this is like a huge pick-up game with all of your friends,” Nick Guldin, sophomore communication major, said.

Cabrini offers a wide variety of intramural sports.  Those who participate in intramural sports can get involved in multiple intramural sports at a time because they are less demanding than regular sports.

“Last year as a freshman my friends and I saw the poster for intramural football and decided to make a team. Then, we made a soccer and basketball team,” Nate Martin, sophomore accounting major, said.

Intramural sports are also a great option for people who played sports in high school but don’t have time or just don’t feel like joining a regular sports team.  Intramural sports provide that same sense of sportsmanship and physicality that a regular team would.

“Basically I didn’t want to go through college and leave sports behind.  Flag Football gives people a chance to compete against others opponents while having a lot of fun,” Bunda said.
