Welcome back. We hope you had a wonderful holiday break!
Signups for Spring Intramural are upon us. However, we’re going to be doing things a little differently this semester. If you are interested in participating in SAGE IMs this semester, please attend the signup meeting at 5:00 PM on 1/14/19 in ERB 203.
Depending on interest levels, we will be fielding teams in the following sports:
Basketball (5 v 5)
Anyone who wishes to participate in SAGE IMs this semester will also be asked to pay in $10 to help offset the costs. Note that this is a flat fee, and so anyone wishing to participate on multiple SAGE teams will still only owe $10. All participants will receive a SAGE t-shirt.
These changes are intended to provide a more accurate estimate in everyone’s interest levels ahead of the opening of IMs signups on 1/15, and to alleviate past issues with game forfeitures and finding captains for certain teams.
