By Kavishka Gunawardena It's the time of year when the hunt for extra-curriculars begins, and those of us who like playing sports, but don't have the time (or motivation) for school sponsored teams, may wonder what to sign up for. If this describes you, fear not; Helwig has got your back. For those looking to be involved in athletics without the pressure, Intramural is the way to go. Don't believe us? We took a few minutes to sit down with Ericka Hopper, Director of Wellness and Recreation, and talk about Intramural sports at Helwig.
The offered sports include flag football, indoor soccer, dodgeball, floor ball, basketball, badminton, volleyball, and many more. Participation is not limited to the student body--even the staff and faculty are welcome to join! This fall, American football's more popular cousin, soccer, is also available for everyone to play. Organization is simple. There are two leagues, A and B. If you've signed up just to have fun, then joining B would probably work for you, whereas, A is for the more competitive kids out there.
If you have any other sport in mind, do not hesitate to walk over to Helwig and have a little chat with Ericka and organize something you like. Check it out. There is something for everyone!
