What are Extramurals?

Extramurals refers to intramural-level tournaments that are held off-campus at colleges and universities across the country. Many are held within the state of Ohio, while others are held at the Regional level in one of the nearby states, or even at the National level. Teams have the opportunity to represent The University of Akron against top intramural teams from other schools.

Tournaments are offered in different sports, including flag football, basketball, soccer, softball, tennis and even battleship. Extramurals typically fall under the sponsoring association known as NIRSA: Leaders in Collegiate Recreation.

Here’s a look at what tournaments are being held during the Spring 2014 semester:
