WEEK CHALLENGE DESCRIPTION
WEEK #1 Recap
June 1st- June 7th
Testimonial Challenge We know that being a part of Rec Sports Programming
is an important part of your college experience so share
your story! What's your favorite memory or advice for
incoming students?!
"My advice for an incoming student that wants to sign up for a [club] sport is to just go for it, don't overthink it! Life is too short to worry, so try that sport that you've always wanted to but were too afraid to try. Also, don't worry if you don't know anyone prior to going to the first meeting, you'll make friends along the way!" -Araceli Hernandez Garcia [Student]
"My favorite thing about being a part of [Intramural] Sports is that you don't have to [be] good at that particular sport. I do it for fun and feeling more connected to the community. Our team definitely wants to win every game - which rarely happens. We go out there to have fun, encourage, and support one another. All I have is the fun we shared together and getting knocked out with a volleyball in my face - don't worry, I was able to keep the ball in play. #FUNTIMES" -Lamonte Stamps [Staff]
"Being a part of Club Women’s Volleyball has been my favorite part of my college experience because I’ve been able to meet my best friends while playing the sport I love. What made it even more special was that we won two consecutive National Championships only a few years after establishing the club. I will never forget the feeling of winning the last point of the Championship match and realizing we were the best club volleyball team in the country! My advice to incoming students would be get involved quickly, whether it’s something you already love to do or something you’re interested in learning about. The Rec Sports Department has something for everyone and it can enhance your college experience greatly if you put your heart into it." -Miranda Roberts [Student]
"My name is Zoë Hallmen and I am a rising senior Spanish Studies major at USF. My favorite part of the Rec Sports program are the Outdoor Adventure trips! I get to go to new places with my friends, meet new people, and just have a fun time! And what makes it even better, it’s DISCOUNTED for students. I love it!" -Zoë Hallmen [Student]
"Participating in Intramural Sports at USF helps me connect with colleagues on campus from various departments. It has helped me form relationships with other Fac/Staff and I am grateful for Team Persistence and all they do on campus!" -Jessica Javier [Staff]
"I am pretty involved with Intramural Sports. I [participate in] IM Basketball, both CoRec and [the] Men's League. I've [participated] in the Men's League every semester I've been at USF. I love both of them and have met a ton of people! Too many people sleep on Dodgeball, but I enjoy it the most! The people that are out there know just how competitive it is and how fun it is, highly recommend trying IM Dodgeball you won't regret it!" -Dominic Wall [Student]
