Riverside, Calif. (Jan. 11, 2017)—Sign-ups for intramural men’s and women’s basketball started Jan. 11, tipping-off the spring 2017 intramural sports schedule at California Baptist University.
Tyler Cox, director of recreation programs, anticipates close to 50 teams forming to compete in the several different basketball leagues offered at CBU. Additionally, CBU will also have a co-ed soccer season that starts sign-ups on Feb. 7.
There will also be various day tournaments that are held through the spring semester for sports such as whiffle ball and kickball.
CBU students are very competitive in intramural sports, Cox said.
“The environment allows students to be competitive but also to form a sense of community,” Cox said. “We hear back from students that they enjoy spending time with friends and doing something different on campus.”
