BYU-Idaho adopts new sports system

This article was written by Rachel Clarke

BYU-Idaho is moving away from the old way of sport sign ups.

The new program can be located on the school website through Sports Activities. Before, students would go through IMLeagues to find and join sports teams on campus.

“I’ve participated in and been a captain of several different recreational teams over the years,” said Ethan Bernard, a senior studying public policy and administration. “I’ve coached competitive ultimate (frisbee) at least three times … IMLeagues made things complicated. The app hardly ever worked, and the website was infested with ads.”

“We simply changed the software we are using to sign up or register to play sports,” said Justin Garner, the sports and fitness activities director. “After doing some research we found that it has a lot of functionality and has a great user interface, so we decided to take advantage of it.”

According to Garner, there will be an app that will allow students to use the new system from their phones.

“All of competitive sports and many of the sports events were already paying fees in order to play,” Garner said. “The addition of Rec Sports fees are not to cover costs, rather they will help offset rising costs. We work hard to keep fees as low as possible in order to ease the burden placed on students.”

“I really appreciated Student Activities making positive changes so participating in sports is easier, more accessible, and overall fun.
