San Jacinto College Central has a full campus rec program, featuring team and individual competition in a variety of sports. Team sports include flag football, ultimate Frisbee, soccer, softball, basketball, kickball, and many others. Individual sports include racquetball, tennis, pool, jogging, table tennis and others.
The campus rec philosophy is based on the concept that students should have freedom of choice, equality of opportunity, and opportunity to share in planning, supervising, and implementing the program. Sound campus rec programs give all students an opportunity to enjoy satisfying recreational activities varying from highly competitive to those of a non-competitive nature. There are valuable outcomes which give immediate satisfactions and insure treasured memories in all types of activities. Participation in the campus rec program can provide and contribute to good physical health and social adjustment.
SPIRIT OF COMPETITION
Team sports activities find their origin in the basic human need for the spirit of play. Winning and losing are mere outcomes of this play spirit. Abusive language toward officials and manipulation of the rules are not “part of the game”. What is part of the game is pure satisfaction of participation, getting fit and enhancing friendships. Without your opponent, you have no game, no contest and no fun. You are indebted to them, as they are to you. The spirit of play then is based on cooperation. Upholding high standards of integrity and fair play acknowledges this idea of cooperative competition. All players are encouraged to exercise good judgment in caring for the safety of others as well as themselves. At SJC, an intentional foul is considered cheating and a gross offense against the spirit of competition. The goal of lifetime sports for all players may have more meaning than that of a win or loss, the memory of which often fades quickly. All players are asked to participate within the context of this spirit of play/competition.
The Campus Rec Program of San Jacinto College Central is under the direction of the Dean of Student Services and the Physical Education Department. The director is responsible for planning and preparing the annual program according to the needs and interests of the students. All eligible students are welcome to participate in the Campus Rec Program, either in individual or team sports.
