Club sports sees increase in enrollment numbers

As the school year starts so do many of the activities that students can join to engulf themselves farther into the college experience. Club sports and intramurals are a great option for students who want to continue playing the sport they love—or try a new sport—after high school. Students’ desire to continue playing the sports they love is why Assistant Director of Recreational Sports Jared Cox believes incoming freshman last year made club sports the largest it has ever been last year with 485 students participating in various sports.

“The 2016-2017 school year had 5,000 participants, which continued the 10 percent increase that is seen in intramurals year in and year out” said Coordinator or Intramural sports Daniel Fragel.

For Cox, club sports are a great way for students to still feel the intensity of competition while simultaneously meeting new people across the college campuses. Unlike intramurals where students play against each other, if a student is in a club sport, you join the Boise State team and travel and compete against other colleges.

“An individual can join anytime, and the best way is to show up or contact a club president,” Cox said. All information regarding practice time and sports offered can be found on Boise State’s student rec page.

Cox continued to say intramurals on campus give students options regarding ways of staying active and takes the form of students playing against one another. Sports that can be played are flag football, innertube water polo, spikeball, sand volleyball, and wheelchair basketball just to name a few.

Cox hopes Boise State Recreation’s offering of many different sports shows their dedication to giving students diverse options on campus.
