Intramural Sports FAQs

Anybody with an active Recreation Services Membership can participate in Intramural Sports.

  • Individuals and teams are welcome in Intramural Sports. Teams form from residence halls, Greek houses, organizations, and friend groups. Each residence hall, sorority, and fraternity has a Recreation Services Manager to assist with sign-ups.
  • Independent groups need a representative to connect with the program. Individuals for individual/dual activities should register online before the deadline.
  • No phone entries accepted. Online submission required for all entries.

You can still sign up to play!

If you want to play, but you do not have a doubles partner or know enough people to form a team, don’t fret, we can still get you involved. All you need to do is sign up as a free agent under the particular intramural sport you want to participate in.  Your name will be available to any other individual as well as team captains looking for players or partners.

  • Champions will be contacted by the Intramural Coordinator with instructions to pick up their champion shirt.
  • In order to qualify, your name must have appeared on a scorecard (a minimum of two games for team sports). The number of awards given to a team is five more than the number allowed on the field/court at one time. 
  • A maximum of two awards will be awarded to any one participant in a single sport.
  • Awards must be picked up within one calendar year at the t-shirt office in the Administrative Office during work hours
