Athletic Recreation Mission Statement
The Suffolk University Department of Athletics serves the academic, intercollegiate, and recreational needs of the Suffolk University community by providing a variety of educational, social, recreational, and athletic programs. The department strives to offer a total educational experience with quality opportunities that inspire, educate, motivate, and empower individuals to be positive contributors to Suffolk University and the greater global community.
Intramural Sports supports the mission of Suffolk University by providing structured activites to enhance the quality of life for students. The intramural program gives students the opportunity to be competitive and have fun without the demands of being involved in a varsity sport.
Sports offered will vary each semester, but popular sports include basketball and flag football.
Our intramural sports program offers a great way to make new friends, develop personal health and wellness and learn new skills in a competitive, yet fun, environment. Sports offered will vary each semester but popular sports include basketball, indoor and outdoor soccer, volleyball, flag football, dodgeball, softball and more! With so many options, there is sure to be something for everyone.
Get involved with intramurals by signing up with IMLeagues at IMLeagues.com/SSU. Once you are registered you can stay informed with all of the latest information and upcoming sports and events.
Who Can Participate?
Suffolk's intramural programs are open to all undegraduate students.
The 2016 fall semester will feature a monthly tournament and the popular flag football league played in the Boston Commons. September's tournament will be 3-on-3 Basketball in Regan Gymnasium Saturday, Sept. 24 at 12:30 p.m. Tournaments for October and November will be announced at a later date.
- FLAG FOOTBALL
As the popular alternative to tackle football, flag football is a team sport consisting of seven players on each side. Instead of tackling, players must remove the flag belt of their opponent in order to end a play. Fast-paced and unorthodox, flag football challenges players to think outside the box.
2016 Flag Football will consist of 7-10 person teams with the 7-on-7 regular-season contest taking place Thursday and Friday afternoons in October and the post-season tournament in November.
Players can sign-up on a team or as a free agent now through Wednesday, Sept. 21 at midnight with the first contest slated for Tuesday, Sept. 27.
- 3-ON-3 BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT – SATURDAY, SEPT. 24 AT 12:30 PM – REGAN GYMNASIUM
3-on-3 Basketball is a popular introduction leading up to basketball season inside Regan Gymnasium. Half cour style, 3-on-3 is a fun way to clean off the rust and stay active.
Teams compete for the coveted Intramural Sports Championship, determined by a single elimination tournament. With a co-rec, one-day tournament, 3-on-3 basketball is a sport in which everyone can excel and enjoy.
