Hey guys!! There are a lot of things to do on campus, but one of the most widely diverse and exciting activities is participating in on campus intramurals. I myself have participated in two so far but have watched and cheered for many others. Intramurals are all different kinds of sports, including dodgeball, soccer, volleyball, football, and many others, that allow students to play these sports in a relatively non competitive way. All you have to do is get a team together and have a captain attend the captain’s meeting. There is a coordinatior who makes the schedule, and you just have to show up to play!! I have participated in soccer and am currently playing dodgeball.
Worried about not being athletic or good enough to play? Our soccer team ended up losing every game, but we had a ton of fun making matching team shirts playing our hardest. The dodgeball team I am on now is pretty good. We have a lot of fun and again made team shirts and bandanas. Dodgeball is really cool because everyone makes it to the championship round. I do not consider myself to be athletic, but I really enjoy having fun while playing and hanging out with my dodgeball team. I sometimes question why I even played dodgeball because my friends tease about how easy I startle, but I really do have a lot of fun!! LOTS of people come to watch the games too. Just because you are not playing doesn’t mean that you can’t watch friends play! It can be like a huge party when a bunch of people come. When I first came to Lewis and others were talking about joining intramurals, I figured that it just wasn’t something for me, but I have seriously enjoyed every game that I have played with the intramural program here at Lewis!
