The Campus Recreation and Intramurals department (CRI) has undergone many changes in the last year, in order to keep up with COVID-19 regulations. Returning students may be unaware of information that could be useful to them in the coming semesters.

The Armstrong Recreation Center (ARC) has undergone significant changes and renovations over this past summer.
The ARC’s hours of operation have expanded. Students can now enjoy these facilities from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Fridays, 10 8 p.m. on Saturdays and 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Sundays.

Students will also notice a newly renovated basketball court, fully updated and branded as Georgia Southern University instead of the previous Armstrong theme. This renovation is complete with new scoreboards, updated logos, colors and more.

Access to the basketball court is now greatly expanded, with open-play pickleball and volleyball now available. Pickup basketball has returned as well, with no current restrictions on how many players are allowed on each court.
Other renovations include a new Body and Mind studio space and updated exercise equipment.

Group fitness classes, available to any student who has paid tuition and fees, can be reserved via IMLeagues, with walk-ins also available if there is adequate space in the class.

Intramural leagues are back in full force. Volleyball and indoor soccer leagues will begin Aug. 30, flag football and ultimate frisbee on Sept. 27 and 3v3 basketball and kickball beginning Nov. 1.

A variety of one-day sporting events will also be available throughout the semester. Be sure to check the intramural schedule at the ARC’s front desk, or check IMLeagues for a full breakdown of dates, deadlines and more.
All CRI activities, sports and league registration can be found on the Armstrong campus page of IMLeagues.

Students on the Armstrong campus can also look forward to a new disc-golf course that is currently being built around the Intramural Fields. The current goal for the completion of the course is early November.

Student-led club sports are also fully available this semester, including options such as Dance Club, Boxing Club, Tennis Club, and more.

More information on joining these clubs can be found on the Armstrong CRI website.
