Fall 2022 Intramural Sports Program

The mission of the Intramural Sports program at Del Mar College is to provide students, faculty, and staff with a variety of recreational sports and activities. Examples might include organized runs, team sports, fitness challenges, racquet sports, and board games. The activities selected are based on popularity and enable participants to make new friends, stay physically fit, and improve their personal health. We believe that participation in intramural sports will allow individuals opportunities to improve teamwork, as well as communication and leadership skills that will complement the goals of Del Mar College and enrich the educational experience.
