Flag football, along with other intramurals, started the week of Nov. 1st. Depending on the number of teams, flag football will be played during the weeks of Nov. 13th and Nov. 20th. There is a men’s division and also a co-ed division.
The men’s division of the game will be played on Saturdays, while the co-ed division will be played on Sundays. Games will primarily be held on the upper and lower fields of the Dixon Center. The games will begin at 9 a.m. sharp.
Pool play, where teams play three other teams in their own team’s pool, will ensue, followed by a single elimination round. Placement in the tournament will be determined by pool results. For the first tournament there is only room for 8 teams. If interested, a student should get a team together and captains should pick up a registration form at the front desk of the Dixon Center or in the Dixon Center Training Room.
There are also numerous other intramural sports that are being held as well. Co-ed 5 vs. 5 indoor soccer, men’s and women’s 3 vs. 3 basketball, and co-ed volleyball, whiffleball and badminton will begin during the spring semester in February. Registration to sign up for these sports will take place in the first two weeks of spring semester and open gym at the Dixon Center will also take place from 10 p.m. to midnight. For volleyball open gym is on Wednesday nights, indoor soccer on Tuesday nights and whiffleball on Thursday nights.
The leagues will go until spring break, then after the season ends playoffs will begin. A second round of leagues will begin in April, with the intramurals moving outside. Co-ed softball and possibly ultimate frisbee will make their way onto the schedule.
“Since the intramural programs are just now getting started, it would greatly help to inform more people on campus on what we have to offer” Orlin Jespersen, coordinator of the intramural programs, said.
There is also a way for students interested in playing but do not have a team to register with, to become a “free agent.” Already formed teams looking to add a player or others looking to form a team will be able to contact that person.
Any students interest pertaining to this or other intramural sports should contact Orlin Jespersen by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by extension at x3909 with their name, phone number, sport they are interested in and their level of playing, whether it be competitive or recreational.
