New sports will be added to the Intramural Volleyball Club offerings this winter in the NHS fieldhouse.
Kickball, badminton and wiffleball are the three sports co-advisers Andy Laluzerne and John Morgen are looking at incorporating. If everything goes as planned, it will be like the Olympics in the gym.
“The new sports are for kids of all levels,” adviser LaLuzerne said. Some students can compete like college athletes and others are just learning. He emphasizes that everyone is welcome, and the more people that come, the more enjoyable it is.
The club is laid back in terms of time commitment compared with a typical extracurricular sport. In contrast, it meets once a week for a couple of hours.
Also, the requirements to join this club are simple. Have a good attitude with sports and competition, be available 7-9 on Monday nights through December, January and February, and make a team of 6-10 people. Sign up sheets are located in the main office and in rooms 207 and 511.
Teams will start the season by playing a round-robin style tournament, then they will compete in a tournament in January and February for bragging rights. In previous years, the championship game looked like two high school teams at battle.
“The Intramural Volleyball Club opened up my mind to the game of volleyball and gave me a new experience,” Mitchell Welter, a member of the club said.
This club’s goal is to educate kids on new activities while having a good time. The beauty of this club is the advanced players teach the new players techniques to become a better player.
Now that this program is offering even more sports, there will more opportunity for a wide variety of students.
Laluzerne and Morgen have been running this club since 1993, and this is the first year of these new changes. They are excited with the growth of the club.
Morgen says sometimes school sports can be a little too much for some students to handle. That is why he says the best thing about this club is that it gives students an opportunity to enjoy sports in a stress-free environment.
Hearing the roar of players, the slam of the ball on the ground, the new games scattered throughout the gym is what makes this club different; it is an environment where having fun is the only worry that people have.
