Believe it or not, it is already time to start thinking about spring intramural sports. With the fall semester coming to an end, the spring semester events are just around the corner and ready to take over at Palm Beach Atlantic University.

Between January and the middle of April, favorites like basketball, soccer and dodgeball will be available to any students wanting to participate.

There will be another bowling outing offered in the spring if you missed out on the one in the fall. In addition to the returning sports available, two new ones have been added this year.

One of the new intramurals is sand volleyball. If you are someone who loves to play volleyball at the beach, then this intramural sport is for you. Indoor wiffleball was also added to the list of spring intramural sports.

And let’s not forget about the Sailfish Cup. Beginning on Jan. 21, the Sailfish Cup, one of PBA’s most competitive and spirited events, will take place.

It is time to start meeting with members from your dorm to decide who will represent each dorm in the variety of events that will be offered this year.

Keep your eyes open for sign-ups when you return from the holiday break.

Following is the schedule of what sports are available, the deadline to sign up and when they will be offered. Don’t miss out on a good time.
