Sports: not just for the sporty
Intramurals require good attitude and not much else
There is a certain stigma that sports are for athletic people.
Sometimes, though, we acknowledge that we maybe weren’t destined to be the next great one and join a beer league to have fun feel our own sort of glory in our lifetime.
Intramural sport at Mount Royal University definitely falls under that last category.
Living in residence, I convinced my community to form a volleyball team. The majority of the team is under six feet. The skill level ranges from, “How do I hit the ball properly?” to, “I went for it and that in itself is good enough.”
We are currently 0-2 on the season, and we are comfortably aware of the fact that it wasn’t close.
The point of lower-tier intramural isn’t to dominate (unless we get good and then we as a team will need to change our focus). Instead, the highest priority for us is to get out there as a group and have fun screwing around the court.
Volleyball is a great sport for that because we literally spend half the play watching the other team muck around with the ball.
It can be a bit of a struggle to get enough teams and players out on the court, and I can’t for the life of me understand why.
It is fairly cheap to join up and its a blast.
The worst part is that we pass by The Hub on our way back. Obviously, we have to drink away the horrid pains of our losses so we stop by there frequently.
