7. Amateur athletes get to play officiated games and are given the ability to be competitive…IMSPORTS.1

Otherwise unavailable to amateur athletes, officiated games are something that is hard to come by. Sometimes playing pickup sports gets frustrating when it comes to calling fouls and other calls, so ASI makes it easy to play officiated games.

If you’re a part of several leagues, multiple nights per week will be dedicated to playing that sport. Playing sports several times a week is a great way to stay healthy physically and mentally.

Besides school, intramural sports have the most student involvement. With 10,000 participants, so many things can be done, including different divisions and different sports. Sign up for a competitive nine-on-nine soccer league, or a co-ed inter-tube water polo league. With 150 leagues, theres a perfect level of competition for everyone.

10.

This prevents teams from picking up free agents on the fly, and also digitalizes all the teams, scores, and games.
