You are the vital link between RecSports and the students you represent. RecSports will be contacting you regarding leagues, tournaments, fitness, educational opportunities, special events and various other kinds of information. Whatever you can do to help us “get the word out” and to furnish necessary information will allow us to be of real service. Our staff is ready to help you in any way we can to make our activities better, but also to assist you with in-hall athletic functions. “How-To” information is as near as your telephone or computer, as well as rules, equipment and even facilities when they are available. It is our goal to make available a wide variety of recreational programs and to offer them in an enjoyable and beneficial manner.

Kelly retired in June of 2003, following 39 years of service with the Irish Athletic department.
About the O'Leary Cup

A member of the University's athletic department for 37 years, O'Leary was responsible for over 60 Intramural Sports activities and supervised its club sports teams.
