Intramural sports leagues and tournaments

The University's Intramural Program offers students many fun and inexpensive sport activities. For more information about intramural sports, please visit the Intramural office located by the Membership Services Desk on the first floor of the E. L. Wiegand Fitness Center or call (775) 784-1897.

Tournament and league overview

League play

Designed for team participation, leagues consist of a five-week season with each team competing once per week for a five game season. All teams that qualify then move onto a single elimination championship tournament for that sport.

Tournament play

Designed for individual or team participation, tournaments start and finish during a designated time period, usually within a week. Participants usually play multiple games.

Divisions of play

All leagues and tournaments are recreational to promote participation over competition. Intramural Sports play features Men's, Women's, and Co-Ed divisions. Some sports will have further divided levels of play that could include an "A", "B" or "C" in a division. Co-Ed leagues will require a minimum number of women and at least one male needed to begin and play a game. More specific rules are available in the specific sport's rule books.


All officially enrolled University of Nevada, Reno students, faculty, and staff members are eligible to participate in Intramural Sports. When competing in Intramural Sports, undergraduate students must be enrolled in six undergraduate credits, and graduate students must be enrolled in at least three graduate credits. Participants must show a valid University ID each time they wish to participate in intramural sports. Players on a Co-Ed team may also play in the Men's or Women's division of the same sport.

Free agents

No team? No problem! If you would like to participate in intramural sports as a free agent, you will be required to sign-up for an IMLeagues account. Free Agents will be required to attend the sport specific meeting for the sport they desire to participate in. If you are picked up as a free agent, you will need to revisit the IMLeagues website to 'Join A Team', the team captain will need to be added to a roster through IMLeagues to be eligible for play.
