Intramural athletics are an important part of college life. Competitive, recreational sports assist in developing positive social and physical skills. At Edward Waters College, intramural sports include basketball, flag football, ping-pong, and volleyball. These sports are operated according to the National Intramural Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) guidelines under the supervision of the Director of Student Activities or his/her designee. Enrolled students are encouraged to participate in intramural athletics for exercise, socializing, and fun, with an added bonus of acquiring practical experience in team management and supervision.
