Intramural sports offer something for everyone

Whatever your sport or level of athletic ability, WCC’s intramural sports program has an upcoming chance for you to play.

“It’s for everybody,” said Erica Lemm, coordinator of the WCC Sports office. “It’s really for people who want to meet new people, get some exercise, and not make a long-term commitment to a club team.”

Most sports will be played in single-day tournaments that last about two hours. Most of the events require preregistration. “They can sign up on their own, they can sign up with a friend, or they can sign up a full team,” Lemm said.

Intramural sports are open to WCC students who are taking at least three credits and have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher, staff members, and faculty. The WCC Sports office provides equipment, and all events except the golf scramble are free. The golf scramble is free to the first 20 students who register, but employees must pay to participate.

To register for an event, stop by the WCC Sports office in Room 116 of the Student Center building or call 734-973-3720.
