WELCOME to GPRC
Come be part of an Active & Healthy GPRC Student Body!
Student Wellness is designed to give students the opportunity to learn lifelong skills in the area of well-being, good health, leading an active lifestyle and put those skills into practice. With the Student Wellness Program, GPRC is eliminating the common cost barrier deterring students from focusing on and participating in wellness programming. GPRC is committed to the development of students' immediate and life-long physical and emotional well-being.
Intramural Sports is a fun way to experience a variety of organized recreational sports leagues and tournaments. Students have the opportunity to create their own teams of friends, classmates, and staff. Can’t quite put a team together? Do not fret. Enter as an individual or "Free Agent" as we like to call it, and Student Wellness will place you on a team comprised of other Free Agents. Registration numbers are set with a specific maximum for each Intramural Sport, and it is highly recommended to register early for all leagues and tournament events, as they do fill up quickly.
Games are held in the GPRC Gymnasium on Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesday evenings (unless otherwise stated) from 9:00 – 11:00pm
Current are REQUIRED at all times
We also have a Student Wellness Policy Manual with specific rules and guidelines that all GPRC Students must follow while participating in any Intramural Activity or Special Event. Give it a read before your league/tournament begins.
