The start of intramural sports has provided Leeward students with a healthy way to stay in shape, compete in high-level competitive sports, and a way to meet new and interesting students.
Some of the sports offered last fall were volleyball, basketball, flag football, and indoor soccer. Leeward students formed their own teams to compete in volleyball on campus and in the latter sports in the intramural league held at University of Hawaii at Manoa. Leeward teams not only challenged UH students, but students from other community colleges like Honolulu and Kapiolani.
