The Intramural sports program at the University of Central Arkansas is one component of the Department of Campus Recreation within the Division of Student Services. The program is very structured and offers individual, dual, and team sports for male and female participation. Participation is not required, and an individual does not have to be highly skilled to participate. Intramural activities range from traditional sports such as flag football, basketball, and slow-pitch softball to non-traditional sports such as table tennis, badminton, and cross country. Some activities are scheduled over an extended period (4 to 5 weeks) while others take place during one or two afternoon/evenings. Most teams play once a week, and contests are scheduled during the late afternoon and evening hours.
We hope you will get involved in the intramural sports program. It’s a great opportunity to compete with your friends and meet other students, faculty, and staff. If you have any questions, please contact the Intramural Sports Office at 450-5802. Located in room 201 in the HPER Center.
