Sports intramurals at Volunteer State Community College will be starting this week with co-ed flag foot- ball and soccer for the fall semester.
Both of these sports will be played outside the QUAD from 11:10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and the game dates
for ag football are on Mondays and Wednesdays from Sept. 12 to Oct. 31, and the game dates for soccer are on Tuesdays and Thursdays from Sept. 13 to Nov. 3.
Intramurals just recently par- ticipated with other student clubs and organizations at the “Come-I-Wanna- See-You!” event in the QUAD on Tuesday, Aug. 25, and offered students the chance to play co-ed flag football and soccer for the fall semester.
Tabitha Sherrell, Coordinator of Student Activities, confirms that sports intramurals used to be scheduled from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., but is now scheduled from 11:10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sherrell explains that why this club changed their time frame is because they are hoping that more students can come and participate in all the sports that Intramurals are offering.
“We have been offering sports intramurals over the last four years, and we had a lot of students participat- ing in ag football since it has become a really popular sport on campus, but we did not have enough students to play soccer and we are hoping that
we can get more students to play this sport as much as they have in flag football,” said Sherrell.
Tim Moore, Chairman of Intramurals, said that students should think about participating in this club because they should take playing sports more seriously, and that it could be a good way for them to socialize with each other.
“I believe that playing in sports intramurals can allow students to interact with each other, and I also believe that it can let them enjoy their time in school more than just studying and being in the library and it can also allow them to have a common connection,” said sophomore John Pratt.
Not only does Intramurals offer ag football and soccer during the fall semester, but they also offer basketball and volleyball during the spring semester. Sherrell said that even though this club has already scheduled the dates for ag football and soccer, they have not planned a schedule for basketball and volleyball.
Besides providing sports to many students, Intramurals even offered video games to them at the Randy and Lois Wood Campus Center last spring. Sherrell said that this club decided to offer video game intramurals because they wanted to have students spend their leisure time without having to utilize outside space, and the video game consoles that the club used for students to participate in video game intramurals was the Xbox One and the Nintendo Wii.
Since sports intramurals will be starting this week, students will be able to enjoy their leisure time on campus.
