Q. Where/how do I register?
A. To participate in intramurals, you must register for an IMLeagues.com account using our Online Portal. Once you've successfully created an account, you can register a team online during the specified registration period. More importantly, it will allow us to communicate to each student about deadlines, registrations, and special events.
Q. What if I don’t have a team to register?
A. You can register as a ‘free agent’ on the IMLeague website. While teams may only register during a specific time, free agents can register throughout the season. You will be allowed to view registered teams and see if they are looking for players and ask to join. There is no guarantee for being picked up as a free agent and we do not force free agent signings.
Q. Most of my team has other obligations during our game, can we add another player?
A. You can add players to your roster throughout the regular season so long as they are eligible, have an IMLeague account, and it is done at least the day before your next scheduled game. If it is within 24 hours of the game roster edits can only be done by visiting the intramural office during operating hours.
Q. What is the male/female ratio for Co-ed sports?
A. That varies based on sport. Please see each individual sport rules for specifics. Only leagues/tournaments labeled as ‘coed’ require a certain number of female players.

A. We do not have additional storage for hockey bags. They must be kept in the residence halls. Please consult with your RA or RD prior to bringing in your equipment.
