Intramural sports kick off for the fall semester

Wheaton College’s intramural sports programing is right around the corner. With many Wheaton favorites and new added sports throughout the semester, this Fall will be filled with events for almost everyone in the Wheaton community.

Returning to the intramural lineup for the beginning of Fall 2013 is Co-ed Outdoor Soccer, three-on-three Basketball, Co-ed Beach Volleyball and Ping-Pong. With a variety of opportunities for students to get involved, students are encouraged to sign up for as many as they want. With event staff present at each game to oversee the games and to keep statistics for each player, intramural athletes have the experience of playing a competitive sport without the mandatory practices and time commitment of playing at the varsity level.

It also lets Wheaton students venture away from their comfort zones, and gives them the opportunity to meet new people while living an active and healthy lifestyle.

With students of all backgrounds, nationalities and years participating, Wheaton intramural sports continue to serve as a judgment-free zone for the Wheaton campus. Emphasizing fun over winning, intramural sports provide athletes of all skill levels an opportunity to get involved with several sports throughout the school year. Different sports are offered between the Fall and Spring semesters to allow for students to balance their personal schedules, while also playing in programs that they enjoy.

A new addition to the Wheaton intramural world is the Diane Nordin ’80 Athletic Field. The synthetic turf field will allow for intramural events that were not possible in previous years at Wheaton. From full-length outdoor soccer games to flag football, the opportunities are endless and the field is sure to be game-changing for the intramural athlete experience.
