RECSports Makes Changes for Spring Semester

Kat Wilberding

WEST HAVEN–Welcome back to another semester of school, work, and RECSports! Season Three registration is up and running, so be sure to get your teams together and sign up. On that note, here’s a quick reminder of the sports offered in Season Three: 5 v 5 basketball, dodge ball, floor hockey, and whiffleball.

Joining a team and participating in RECSports is a wonderful opportunity for students, but these RECSports activities are really only the beginning to what RECSports has to offer.

In past semesters, there has been a continuous racquetball ladder. The ladder was a semester- and even a year-long competition of sorts in which the object was to move up in the ranking by winning matches. With this tournament-style play in mind, RECSports is excited to introduce more weekend activities this semester, including tournaments. In fact there will be a racquetball tournament on Saturday, Feb. 21. Registration will be the day of starting at 11 a.m. and ending at noon. Following the racquetball tournament there will be a free throw contest on Saturday, Feb. 28.

With all these new activities outside of regular season play it could be difficult to keep track of what’s going on in RECSports. So if you are ever unsure of what’s going on and when it’s happening, be sure to check out our web site( The website is updated regularly and new pages have recently been added. On the RECSports page of the ChargerREC website is a whole new photo gallery page with a hundred pictures from Seasons One and Two. For those RECSports team managers out there, the Manager’s Manual is now available online as well as all the other forms and rules for playing in the league sports. Coming in the next few weeks will be a page with up-to-date standings on all the currently active sports. If you want or need any information on any of the activities offered by RECSports all you have to do is check out our website, which is available 24/7 from any computer with internet access. So please use this invaluable resource.

RECSports has a lot to offer from returning league sports to new weekend tournaments, but the program is always looking to grow. With that in mind there is now a RECSports survey online for comments and suggestions. So let us know what you want in our survey.

Be sure to have fun with RECSports this semester!
