Games You Can Play, from Archery to Wrestling

JMU offers a wide variety of sports clubs ranging from basketball, soccer, and cross-country to archery, swing dance, and paintball. These sports, though, do have a serious time commitment such as weekly practices and meetings. In other words, make sure you have time slots free in your schedule before you commit. The commitment though can be worth it. “The greatest reward of working with club sports is not only seeing how the dynamics of each team works within each other and the success we all have,” said Alec Bernstein, Club President, “but seeing your team grow right in front of your eyes.” These teams travel across the nation to compete and participate in tournaments. Some sports do require tryouts, but others require little to no experience.

If you’re looking to play the sports without the time commitments, consider intramural sports. “The biggest difference between club…any other intramural sport,” Bernstein said, “is the daily practices, traveling, time, and effort put into playing and practicing.” Anyone can form a team and play with everybody from your hallmates to your professors with men’s, women’s and co-ed teams at various skill levels. The sports include many of the ones mentioned above and much more. Teams play once a week at UREC or Godwin on a designated night, followed by single-elimination playoffs. Winners of each league earn a champion t-shirt. Registration is online and the dates for specific sports can be found on the UREC website.
