Sport activities find their origin in the basic need for the spirit of play. Winning and losing are mere outcomes of this play spirit. Part of the game is the pure satisfaction of participation, getting fit, and enhancing friendships. Without your opponent, you have no game, no contest, and no fun. Upholding high standards of integrity and fair play acknowledges this idea of cooperative competition.
The Intramural Sports Program is designed to encourage the SJU community to participate in organized sport activities. These activities promote participation and socialization between groups and individuals, enhance physical fitness, and foster a spirit of fair play and sportsmanship among participants and spectators.
