Q. Can I sign up and play if I don’t already have a team?

A. Absolutely! Register as a Free Agent to let team captains and others know that you are interested in playing a sport but don’t already have a team. You can either be recruited by an already-existing team or contact other free agents to form a team of your own. Please note that there is no guarantee that you will be recruited by a team. Intramural Sports does not place free agents on already-existing teams. Free Agents can sign up by following the IMLeagues registration information available in the previous question.

Q. How much does it cost to enter a sport or tournament?

A. For most events, it costs nothing to participate! Off-campus events such as bowling or golf may require a minimal fee to guarantee your spot.

Q. Can I play on more than one team in a sport?

A. Yes, but there are specific eligibility rules regarding this. A participant may play on a maximum of one men’s or women’s team AND one Co-Rec team in each sport. At no time may a participant play on more than one men’s, women’s, or Co-Rec team in a sport, regardless of the number of different leagues in that sport.

Q. Can I play on an intramural team if I received a varsity letter in college?

A. Varsity athletes are not eligible for participation in an intramural sport if they are a current intercollegiate athlete in the same or related sport during the current academic year. Current varsity athletes may participate without restriction in any other intramural sport. Former varsity athletes may be eligible for participation in their sport following the conclusion of their intercollegiate activity. Please see the Intramural Sports Handbook for specific eligibility rules regarding participation of former varsity and club sport athletes.
