For fans of Bulldogs’ athletics, Intramural Leagues may be the last hope for sports action during the 2020 season.
Due to the choice to cancel fall sports, Ferris will look to their Intramural Leagues for a chance to see some sort of Ferris athletics. So far, I.M. Leagues have a total of nine sporting events lined up for students to participate in.
There is a plethora of leagues that are being set up to accommodate Ferris sports fans. A constantly growing list of leagues are being activated for various sports.
An I.M. Fantasy Football league is set to start up, with signups closing September 8.
Sand Volleyball has four leagues being set up for students to compete in. This includes a co-rec, fraternity, sorority, and female league. Sign-ups for each league closes on September 11. The league is currently scheduled from September 15 to September 29. Each team must have a minimum of four players. Co-rec teams must have two female players. These games will be held at the Clark and Merrill/ Travis Sand Volleyball courts.
A Euchre tournament will be held September 11 will be played at the Student Recreation Center. Teams of two will play in a tournament with double elimination. Winners will receive an intramural champion t-shirt.
Cornhole leagues are being setup for regulars, fraternity, and sorority players. Signups end September 12. The regular season will begin September 21 and ends October 5 for the regular league and October 12 for the fraternity and sorority leagues.
Four Esports leagues are setup for players to join. This includes two Madden 21 leagues; one leagues for Xbox One players and one league for PlayStation 4 players. This goes the same for NBA2k21, with leagues set up for both console players. Signups end September 13 and the season runs from September 14 through Thanksgiving.
Tennis will be running six different leagues. These leagues include co-rec, fraternity, Greek co-rec, men’s tennis, sorority singles, and women. Team registration ends September 14. The season will run from September 16 to September 30.
There are many other single day events that are also being planned. A Hispanic Heritage 5K will be taking place September 26. A disc golf outing will be held the day before on September 25. On October 14, and home run derby will be held. Students will be able to sign up to each respective event up until the day before.
The Ferris I.M. leagues will try to offer as many sports as available while they continue following COVID-19 protocols for everyone on campus to stay safe and while still having fun together. Just like the rest of the world struggles to fight for some sort of normalcy back in everyone’s lives Ferris will look to engage students in sports and activities while still take a guard with safety precautions against the coronavirus pandemic.
Registration is open for I.M. leagues on both the mobile app, which is free to download, and on the Ferris State website under intramural sports.
