Tomorrow is National Recreational Sports & Fitness Day. The sponsor, NIRSA (National Intramural Recreational Sports Association), has a message for all involved in campus recreation: “It’s your day. Celebrate it your way.” What are your plans for tomorrow?
NIRSA was founded on February 22, 1950 and members voted to create this day in 1999 as a way of celebrating the positive benefits of recreational sports, fitness, and wellness. NIRSA now includes 4,000 professional, student and associate members throughout the United States, Canada and other countries. Those members serve more than five million students who regularly participate in campus recreational sports programs.
How to get involved
It’s time to celebrate the value of sports, fitness, and wellness in our college communities. So pat yourself on the back and enjoy the day!
