Once you graduate from high school or college, it can seem difficult to get back into the groove of playing intramural sports regularly, as you're less likely to be surrounded by a large group of individuals with similar athletic aspirations. However, even after you've graduated, there is often a large community of people in your town or city that want to get out there and participate in intramural sports as well. While getting all of these people together isn't always easy, there's lots to be gained from joining an intramural sports team; ideally, this will include making a big new group of friends!
To begin your quest to join an intramural sports team, go to places where people play the sport you want to join in on. By doing so, you may be able to quickly find out about intramural leagues already in place. Most teams are willing to take on new players, as attrition in these leagues is fairly high; however, you may have to wait a month or two until a new season begins. If you can't find out about any intramural teams with this method, you may want to go online to sites like MeetUp, where people organize events and groups; in big cities, it's nearly guaranteed you'll find a group centered around your sport. Once you've found a team, you'll want to get to know your teammates, especially if you want to succeed as a team. Do so by planning an event or two; these gatherings can be as simple as a hang out session at a local bar or an afternoon throwing the Frisbee at the park. Remember, intramural sports are more about camaraderie and fitness than winning, so do your best to keep a cool head and enjoy yourself out there on the field!
