Intramural sports introduces wiffle ball, new online system

Laramie County Community College’s intramural sports are ramping up again for the spring semester, following a fall semester which offered 3-on-3 basketball, volleyball and broomball hockey.

The spring semester is going to offer kickball and flag football leagues, racquetball and dodgeball tournaments, and a coed sand volleyball game. A new option for this year, wiffle ball, will either be a league or tournament depending on how many people sign up.

“Intramural sports are open to any students, faculty or staff of Laramie County Community College,” said Vince Gibson, who has coordinated the intramural sports program since 2012.

All intramural sports are coed and free to join. Registration is open either to teams or free agents who will then be placed on a team.

The switch from paper sign-ups to the new online system has caused registration to decline. However, Gibson said he believes this will change with time and encourages prospective participants to visit the website at imleagues.com/LCCC and create an account. While the account may take a bit more time to create than signing up on a paper, the website does offer some interesting benefits.

On the website, people can register, find schedules and rulebooks, and participate in polls that gauge interest in various sports or changes.

“The Intramural program is supposed to be student-friendly and we try as hard as we can to make it that way,” Gibson said. “If enough students show interest in adding a new sport, then we will try to make that happen.”

All of these events, besides the racquetball tournament and the sand volleyball game, will be held in the Recreation and Athletic Complex Multi-Purpose Room. The racquetball tournament will be held at the RAC courts, and the sand volleyball game will be held at the LCCC sand court.

Kickball and flag football started Feb. 5 and 6 respectively, so it is too late to join those leagues now. Kickball will be played from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. every Monday. Flag football will be played from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday. Wiffle ball will begin on March 26, and if enough students join to make it a league, games will be from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. every Monday.

The tournament and game schedule is as follows: racquetball will be from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. on March 28, dodgeball will be from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on April 18, and sand volleyball will be from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on April 25.

About Jason Lux (29 Articles)
I’m from a tiny town just north of Rock Springs, Wyoming called Farson. If you know of it at all, it’s almost certain that it’s due to its famous ice cream store that will put a half gallon into a single cone. Otherwise, it’s a two-gas station town with ranches scattered among oilfield businesses. I spent my time there building fences, herding cattle, lighting bonfires, and participating in all other rural activities. At 18 I sought out the world beyond Farson. I hitchhiked and rode greyhound busses across the country for a few months, living out of my backpack and exploring the amazing American landscape. I settled in Eugene, Oregon for about a year, worked odd jobs and passed the time until I decided to move back to Wyoming and attend Laramie County Community College. I’ve majored in Interdisciplinary Liberal Arts and Spanish. I enjoy painting, drawing, reading and traveling to learn about different cultures and the vast plains of humanities variations. In the fall I’ll be heading to UW to major in Latin American Studies and hope to cultivate a career in travel and international relations.
