Amarillo College students interested in intramural sports have a new club they can join starting this semester. Intramural Sports Agents is intended to focus less on athletics and instead focuses on the rules and structure of each intramural sports league. The main purpose of the club is to get direct involvement from students in intramural sports, whether they play or not. “We have chairmen for each league,” said Calee Follins, intramural sports coordinator. “They can still play, but they’re going to be more in charge of rules.” She said that in the past, students had difficulties when the faculty would change a rule. She said she hopes Intramural Sports Agents will act as a buffer between the players and the staff that run each sports league. Follins said that for this semester, she has reached out to students with interest or experience in a particular sports league for chairman positions but plans to move to a peer-elected system once things start falling into place. “I would take it as a leadership,” said Linda Duong, an education major. Duong and Follins agree that Intramural Sports Agents is perfect for students who want to gain leadership experience. They encourage students of any major or interest to attend a meeting. Alexis Tarango, a secondary education major, said she is excited to see what the club offers. She said she is drawn to Intramural Sports Agents because it will help her stay active and get involved in the community. “It’s a good way to make friends,” she said. Tarango will play in the volleyball league and plans to go for chairman of that league because she not only plans to play volleyball at AC, but also for her church. Another benefit, according to Follins, is “an opportunity to maybe build a portfolio.” Follins said some students also are interested in producing videos for intramural sports this semester. Students interested in sports medicine or sports media also are encouraged to attend a meeting because they can gain useful experience and skills that they can take into their careers. Any students interested can attend a meeting. Students who want to find out more about Intramural Sports Agents can talk to Follins by phone at 371-5832 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or go by her office at CFC 112A.
