The Office of Student Life & Leadership Development (SLLD) in cooperation with the Student Government Association sponsors Evening Recreation/Intramurals. Intramurals is designed to help meet the extracurricular needs of the students and the Brooklyn Campus community. The program runs in the Paramount Gym from 8:30pm to 10:30pm, Monday through Thursday. There is no fee involved.
Many of our students come to our campus with previous athletic experiences, either as participants in high school athletics or as individuals with deep interest in personal fitness. Successful transition into college for many students will hinge on how successfully they transfer their athletic experiences into everyday campus life.
Students are also encouraged to present new ideas or programs to improve intramurals, for more information stop by the SLLD office, M311 or call 718 488 1216.
WHY GET INVOLVED?
Outside of structured programs, recreation may be the single common bond among students. We try to service student needs, provide outlets for physical and emotional stress, and develop students' skills.
WHAT ACTIVITIES ARE PROVIDED?
Aerobic, African/Caribbean Dance, Modern Hip Hop Dance, Basketball, Pool, Board Games, Cup Stacking, Baggo, Flag Football, Karate, Table Tennis, Soccer, Volleyball, Badminton, Bowling, Dodge ball, Tennis, and Weight Lifting.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Any student with a valid Long Island University ID can participate in intramurals by coming to the gym and signing the attendance log book. Long Island University students are not allowed any guest.
ARE THERE TOURNAMENTS?
In fall 2002, we started a very competitive basketball night league called "Nothing But Net" open only to students, alumni, and staff. There are a limited number of teams, lots of fun with DJ music and free giveaways. At the end of each semester tournaments are also held for each activity. Prizes and gifts are awarded. The program has also taken teams to 5 on 5 Regional Basketball Tournaments in Boston and Flag Football Tournaments in Maryland and Springfield MA.
PROFESSIONAL NIGHT OUT
Every semester we take a group of students to professional games like, Knicks, Nets, Rangers, Yankees, and Mets. Due to high demand evening intramurals participants have first preference. We also raffle off tickets.
An opportunity to realize one's potential and develops one's concept of sportsmanship, while maintaining the proper perspective of competition. An opportunity for all individuals, regardless of ability to realize the experience of fun of participation. An opportunity for students to develop a nontraditional education (out of class) through learning the values of working together, as a team towards a common goal. An opportunity for members of the campus community to maintain better physical and mental health through exercise. An opportunity to create and develop social contact between campus members that might not otherwise exist. An opportunity to develop a sense of community spirit among all campus factions.
The intramurals staff will supply all game equipment including basketball, soccer, badminton, tennis, dodge ball, table tennis and flag football. Equipment is available on a first come first serve basis. Participants are encouraged to wear soft soled, rubber cleated shoes. Metal, fiberglass or plastic are not permitted. Proper attire and footwear are required for activities.
Good sportsmanship is essential for the overall success and enjoyment of the evening recreation program. Acts of unsportsmanlike behavior will not be condoned. The game officials, manager, and director will make decision whether to warn, penalize, or disqualify offending players.
