The Intramural Sports Program serves over 1,000 UNCG students each year. With a wide range of leagues and special events including flag football, soccer, volleyball, dodgeball,
battle canoes, floor hockey, inner tube water polo, & XBox tournaments, intramurals provides students many opportunities to remain active throughout the year. Beginning this summer, The Department of Recreation & Wellness has a new staff member to lead the IM Program.

Brandon Ohr has joined RecWell as the Competitive Sports Coordinator responsible for supervising the intramural program. He brings his experiences working with the campus recreation at Boise St. where he served as the Graduate Assistant for Intramural Sports. “At Boise State, I had the opportunity to work with the IM Staff. I was responsible for serving as the eyes and ears of the program and was able to implement a new approach to officials’ training.”

Originally, from Colorado, Brandon is a self-described sports junkie. “Making the move to North Carolina, I have to admit I am excited for the opportunity to attend the Duke / UNC basketball game. My goal is to watch it from both campuses.”

Brandon has a definite passion for intramural sports. “Intramurals are a great way to interact with your friends, develop a better understanding of your personal strengths, and try out any sport you are interested in.” In addition to just participating, intramurals provides students an introduction and a way to get started in officiating. “Having the confidence to blow the whistle and have all eyes focus on you is difficult for new officials. If you enjoy being around sports, and gaining different perspecitives, you should definitely try officiating.”

The 2017-2018 Intramural Sports Season is just around the corner. You can view the upcoming fall schedule, review rules and policies, and find answers to any other questions at
