Intramural Sports

I have received many inquiries about the state of Newman University Intramurals, and I am pleased to announce our spring 2015 season!!

All Intramural Sports are open to any current or former Newman Student, Faculty, or Staff Member.

Intramurals has adopted a new format, in order to better serve the Newman community. All sports compete in a pick-up style game. Teams will be formed each time, and individuals need not be on a team before showing up to an event. Intramurals will be co-recreational, with a competitive spirit, but open to all levels of athletic ability.

The following Sports/Events have been approved for Spring 2015:

Indoor Basketball

Outdoor Soccer

Sand Volleyball

Bracketology (for the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament)

 

The schedule for basketball, soccer, and volleyball will be finalized over Spring Break, and announced March 23rd.

 

The schedule for Bracketology is as follows:

Sunday March 15- Schedule is announced Brackets are available

Thursday March 19- The round of 64 begins, all brackets must be submitted beforehand

Monday April 6- All brackets are complete, and the winner is determined

Tuesday April 7- The winner may claim his/her prize

 

Rules for Bracketology:

Any current Newman Student/Faculty/Staff Member may submit up to two brackets and be eligible for a prize. NCAA Athletes/Coaches may fill out a bracket, but are unable to receive any sort of prize, and will thus be competing for “bragging rights.” Brackets must be submitted through espn.com; find the group NUIntramurals, and join with the password NU.

The winning bracket will receive a prize, which is to be determined at a later date.
