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.
