Every attempt will be made to have a Men's, Women's or Co-Ed division in every major sport based on participation and sign-ups. Teams are strongly urged to enter into the proper level of competition. The Intramural Sports Office will help counsel teams and team captains to help determine which division they should sign up to participate in during the team registration payment process. The Intramural Sports program office has the discretion to move a team to the appropriate division of play in a sport to help support the competitive balance of intramural sports play and maintain a safe environment. Some sports will have further divided levels of play that could include an Competitive, Recreational, Women's, "A", "B" or "C" division in a league.
Designed for highly skilled competitive teams and individuals. The Competitive division has been structured for skilled athletes who have played the sport at a high level (i.e. high school, club, city league). Teams wishing to continue play in Competitive divisions must maintain a semester winning records to remain in this division of play (must maintain three or more wins to remain in division of play).
Recreational (Beginner - Intermediate)
Designed for beginner to intermediate skilled players and teams. This division has been structured for all participants that have basic fundamental skills. The level of play could become fairly intense and all players are required to have a clear understanding of the rules.
Division "A" - Advanced
Designed for highly-skilled competitive teams and individuals. The "A" division has been structured for skilled athletes who have played the sport at a high level (i.e. high school, club, city league).
Division "B" - Intermediate
Designed for average skilled competitive teams and individuals. The "B" division has been structured for all participants that have basic fundamental skills. The level of play is fairly intense and all players have a clear understanding of the rules.
Division "C" - Beginner
Designed for beginning teams and individuals. The "C" division has been structured to accommodate players who know the rules of the sport but are still developing their skills. In this division of play, competition is secondary as most players are first time participants. Teams in this division will not move forward to postseason play. The top team will be awarded. If a situational tie for the top team is present, one tiebreaker game will be played to determine the division winner.
Co-Ed leagues will need a minimum number of women needed to start a game. In most cases, this is half the amount of players needed to field a team.
- Co-Ed teams must have at least one male on the court or field of play for each game.
- More specific rules on the number of females are available in the sport-specific rulebooks.
For individuals looking to join a team, a free agent option is available. Free agents:
- Can list themselves as a free agent in as many divisions within a league as they would like.
- Will be visible to all members after listing themselves on the IMLeagues website. Free agents can request to join teams, or a team may request to add the free agent to the team.
- Must attend the sport-specific captain’s meeting for the sport they desire to play. Please check IMLeagues and the E. L. Wiegand Fitness facility for captain meeting dates.
Team registration fees
