The goal of the Intramural Program is to provide an opportunity for each person at Peru State to participate in their favorite type of competitive sports or activities. 

 

There are many advantages to the program including:

 

- An opportunity to maintain better health through exercise. With the pressure of world problems and modern living requirements, it is important that the individual take time out periodically for recreational pursuits in order to help maintain a healthful mental equilibruim.

 

- An opportunity to make social contacts and friendships which could not readily be developed in the classroom.

 

- An opportunity to learn the important values developed through team spirit, cooperation, and experience; the satisfaction of belonging to a group.

 

- An opportunity for relaxition from strenuous school work and the rapid pace of
modern living.

 

- An opportunity to develop sportsmanship of the highest order. Everything that sportsmanship implies should be developed on the playing fields of Peru State.

 

- The opportunity for every individual, regardless of ability, to realize the joy and fun of participation in their favorite sport against good competition.

 

- An opportunity for each individual to develop sport skills usable in later life.
