UTRGV Game Days

UTRGV Game Days and SGA Olympics Schedule Released

In a new effort to promote school spirit at sporting events, the University of Texas-Rio Grande Valley Department of Intercollegiate Athletics recently announced their partnership with the University Program Board and the Student Government Association. Efforts to garner support from the student body will be applied to the Inaugural UTRGV Games Days and the third annual SGA Olympics.

Game Details

UTRGV Game Days, held every month at UTRGV volleyball home matches, allow student organizations to earn the very first Spirit Cup and a pizza party. Points given will be based on the amount of students each organization can assemble in support for the sporting event as well as the amount of school spirit displayed at each game. Participating organizations should focus on attendance, creativity and team spirit, and the Instagram Challenge.

The Challenge

Each participating organization will receive a different Instagram photo challenge from the University Program Board scheduled for completion at the end of the game. The organization with the most points wins the Instagram challenge for the year.

SGA Olympics

Throughout the year's UTRGV sporting events, SGA President Aaron Barreiro and Vice President Erick Sanchez will lead two teams against each other in a competition of 13 Olympics games. Points will be given for each team member in attendance during a match and the winner of each contest will earn 25 points.

On April 18, the SGA Olympics winner for the year will be announced at the Passing of the Torch ceremony at the UTRGV baseball game against Bakersfield.
