Club/IM Sports at the Rec

by blogemu

  Do you ever miss your high school sports experience? The Rec/IM’s Club and Intramural (IM) sports programs are great options to keep your favorite activities in your life without making the commitment of being a collegiate level athlete.

   For those of you who crave competition and a family-like team atmosphere, club sports are going to be your best option. These are teams who practice together regularly and travel to compete with other universities. Some have described club sports as a “JV-like” team for the university. They are still in no way affiliated with university athletics, but have a similar experience without the added pressure of being a student athlete. In addition, the Rec/IM currently offers over 18 club sports, including soccer, kayaking, and Jiu-Jitsu. For contact information, visit https://www.emich.edu/recim/sports/club/index.php

   The IM Sports Program offers both highly competitive and recreational leagues, tournaments, and meets in men’s, women’s, and co-recreational sports. The sports offered range from a single night to a month long of competition. Many people compete with friends and roommates, while others enter into a tournament. Some people enter as a free agent to fill an open space and end up leaving the experience with newly developed friendships. To read more on the IM Sports Program, students can visit https://www.emich.edu/recim/sports/intramural/index.php. “Competitive Sports (both IM and Club) offer a unique opportunity to continue playing, or begin playing, the sports and activities we love to compete in, while continuing to maintain that teamwork and comradery that all employers are looking for at the next post-college step,” says Rec/IM’s Graduate Assistant of Club and IM Sports, Tony Sofia.
