Flag football season to begin Sept. 3

Free registration for the upcoming intramural 7v7 flag football season has begun said Intramural Sport Assistant Matthew Wright. Students interested in being part of a team have until midnight Sept. 3 to get signed up.

Wright said the season kicks off Sept. 4 and runs until Oct. 9.

Game days will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday afternoons.

Wright said the team minimum is six and the maximum number of players per team is unlimited.

To be able to play in the league, students must be enrolled for the fall semester with a current college ID, he said.

Wright said, to register, visit the IMleague website at www.IMleague.com. Choose the green register/signup link to gain access, and create a team.

Students also can join as free agents by joining already created teams.

Team names should be appropriate, Wright said.

At least five to six games are scheduled for the regular season, depending on how many teams sign up, Wright said.

A post-tournament season to determine rankings and winners also will take place, he said.

Last year, three teams participated. This year, Wright said, it’s hoped there will be at least four so an even number of games can be played.

Student Steven Blackman said he didn’t know OCCC had intramural flag football teams.

He said he might be interested in playing.
