(From The Campus Lantern – January 22, 2015)
Eastern is offering many intramural opportunities for students in the Spring 2015 semester. Intramural sports are designed to provide fitness opportunities and foster healthy competition amongst participants.
All Eastern students may participate in intramurals. Students from other colleges and universities and non-students are not permitted to participate. Although the primary purpose of the program is to serve the student population, faculty and staff may participate. All participants must bring their valid Eastern ID to each intramural event.
All of the intramural programs are coordinated through the intramural website, http://www.imleagues.com/EasternCT. All participants must create an account on IMLeagues.com. A team can be organized by a captain or students can join a friend’s team. Students can also sign up as a free agent and be placed with a team. Sign-up instructions can be found on the website.
Spring 2015 intramural leagues include men’s and women’s basketball, co-ed outdoor soccer, co-ed floor hockey, softball, co-ed volleyball, and additional mini leagues and tournaments. Each league will have a regular season followed by a playoff tournament. All information, including dates, times, league descriptions, can be found on the IMLeagues website. The first sport is basketball – men’s NBA division, men’s ABA division, and women’s WNBA division. Registration is now open.
All Eastern rules, regulations, and policies must be followed while participating in campus recreation and intramural events. The Intramural Coordinator and the Athletics administration have full discretion to determine appropriate sanctions against individual participants, teams, and spectators that are in violation of any University or intramural policies. The IM / Rec Handbook has all intramural rules and regulations and can be found online at http://www.easternct.edu/athletics/intramurals/handbook.htm.
Anyone who is interested in playing an intramural sport is encouraged to visit the IMLeagues website or reach out to Coach Wilde, Coordinator of Intramurals and Recreation.
