What are intramural sports?

What types of leagues are available to play in?

There are various types of league play available to our participants.

Men's and Women's Leagues are gender-specific leagues.
CoRec Leagues are mixed-gender leagues.
Open Leagues are open to all participants.

For each team sport, all participants are allowed to compete on one (1) gender-specific team and one (1) CoRec team.

What is the policy for intramural participants that do not identify as male or female?

It is our objective to ensure that all of our athletes have a comfortable and enjoyable environment in which they can participate.  These participants are still allowed to join one (1) gender-specific team and one (1) CoRec team for every team sport.

What levels of competition are available?

With the introduction of FusionIM, intramural sports activities will now offer two different division for participation: the Competitive Division and the Recreational Division.

The Competitive Division is for teams seeking to compete at a high level and wish to participate in a playoff tournament (formerly the Advanced/Intermediate divisions).  During the first three weeks of the season, teams are scheduled at least two round robin games.  Teams in the Competitive Division will be placed into a playoff bracket if they meet team eligibility requirements.

The Recreational Division offers teams the chance to play in an environment founded on social networking, teamwork, and simple enjoyment of exercise (formerly the Beginner division).  This division is for participants without extensive experience in a sport or those that enjoy the opportunity to be part of the game.  Teams in this division will not participate in a playoff tournament.  Instead, each team will receive its full schedule at the beginning of the season (typically a four-game season).
