Hilliard Bradley High School offers intramural sports for students to play with their friends throughout the school year. Some of these activities include Flag Football, Wiffleball, and ultimate Frisbee. By participating in these sports, students are given the opportunity to get involved after school and to compete in friendly competition. The ral sports offered at Bradley are organized by math teacher, Mr. Gmerek, and a panel of students that formed the intramural sports student advisory committee.

Each member on the student advisory committee has a role in offering ideas on which sports should be played during each season, and will help with organization of whichever sport is decided. Mr. Gmerek explained that for the sports offered there is “usually one in the fall, winter, and usually two in the spring.” For any students that are interested in participating, Mr. Gmerek also explained that “there will be flyers around the school” once the sports have been decided on. The registrations will be completed through the website www.bradleyintramurals.weebly.com as soon as the fall sport has been chosen.

Students that have chosen to become a member of the intramural sports student advisory committee want to make sure that they are playing the most popular sports for the students at Bradley to agree on. Junior, Addison Crace, a member of the committee, emphasized that “it’s fun to hang out with new people and you should play if you want to find new sports you’re good at.” Intramural sports provide the chance to step out of one’s comfort zone and to make connections with other students who want to join a laid back club.

Whether you are very involved around the school, or you tend to only stay for classes, intramural sports provide an atmosphere that is drastically different from traditional organizations or sports teams. Grab a group of friends and sign up to play! For any additional questions, stop by Mr. Gmereks class in room B252.
