Learn and Play Series

The Learn and Play Series is a new series of sports that will give students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to learn about the basics of traditional and nontraditional sports in a low stress, experiential learning environment. Participants will get the opportunity to learn the sport rules, interact in skill specific drills, and put it all together in scrimmage play. We hope you will join us for this fun community building opportunity.

These events will be Instructor led so prior registration is required.
