VCFA Intramural Sports Program

The Division of Recreation Sports is working with VCFA units to create a VCFA Summer Intramural sports offering. I am currently serving as a member of the team to help launch this program. Based on our survey results the Rec Sports team has decided to offer a few different activities that we can participate in. Below you will find details relating to their sport offerings:
