Recreational Sports has just released a new app available for students that not only serves as an information center, but also allows students to register for intramural classes and make reservations for weight room and fitness classes. group fitness.
Matt Schneider, deputy director of intramural and club sports, and Jen Kaina, deputy director of fitness and aquatics, created the app together. They believe the app will drive engagement and awareness. Kaina explained that many students were unaware that the Williams Center was even open last semester, but the new app will now allow them to download fitness.

Due to the increase in social distancing protocols and the need to reserve space in the weight room and group classes, there has been a great effort to create the UW-W Rec Sports app. The app gives students quick access to the weight room and group fitness class bookings.

“I was blown away by the ease of use of the app,” says Brett Ebbers, Fitness and Aquatic Program Assistant. “I have been using the app for a while now and haven’t found anything that I dislike. It is very easy to navigate, which makes it much easier for me to register to use our facilities.
The single sign-on feature saves students time by not requiring them to log into the app every time, like the desktop version.

For students interested in intramural, this application is a particularly valuable download. It will allow students to register and keep track of intramural schedules handy. The app is linked to IMLeagues, which the university used before the app, so users should familiarize themselves with the setup.

Schneider hopes to provide students with a five-star experience. He understands that the app is new and may need to be improved.
“If anyone has any questions, concerns, frustrations, or suggestions for the app, we’re all ears,” says Schneider. “We want to hear from people. “
Students can contact Recreation Sports for any feedback through the app itself. The Rec Sports app is available for download in the Google Play Store or through the Apple App Store by searching for UW-W Rec Sports.
