Intramural Sports

Intramural Sports is an organized program that allows DU students, faculty and staff to participate in team competitions on campus. These sports provide a great opportunity for physical activity while promoting wellness, healthy competition and friendship.

Since 1927, Intramural Sports have been an integral part of the Pioneer student experience. Ninety years after Professor Granville B. Johnson started the program, the original purpose of providing an athletic experience to as many students as possible still holds true.

Beginning in 2017-18, participants have two registration options:

Player Pass

The Player Pass provides participants with unlimited access to Intramural Sports leagues and events for the academic year (based on player and team eligibility guidelines). Participants are eligible to participate in one Open and one Co-Rec team per sport/season.

The new Team Pass provides participants with access to one team for one season.

Intramural Sports employs more than 30 officials and supervisors each quarter for five sports:

  • Basketball
  • Broomball
  • Flag Football
  • Soccer
  • Volleyball

Additionally, officials work with our self-officiated sports including Ultimate frisbee and tennis, as well as one-day tournaments for racquetball, wallyball and dodgeball. Beginning with your second season as an Intramural Sports official, you may begin working Club Sports shifts, which includes event supervision for on-campus practices, competitions and events.


No prior experience is needed to become an Intramural Sports official. The first three weeks of each quarter includes classroom-based and on-site training for all new and returning officials. You will review rules, mechanics, positioning and conflict management, and take part in live scrimmages to prepare for the season.

Supervisors are on-site for all competitions to provide immediate feedback and guidance throughout your shifts. All supervisors are veteran Intramural Sports officials.

Most officials strive to be proficient in two or three officiated sports, but there is no formal requirement to officiate more than one.


Hours are flexible and can be worked around your class schedule, extracurricular obligations and your own Intramural Sports games.

Most officials work between six and 12 hours per week. All games are held on campus and are typically during the following days and times:

  • Sundays: 12:00-11:00 p.m.
  • Mondays: 6:00-11:00 p.m.
  • Tuesdays: 6:00 p.m. – 12:00 a.m.
  • Wednesdays: 6:00-11:00 p.m.
  • Thursdays: 6:00-11:00 p.m.

Pay rates begin at $10.20/hour with opportunities for promotion.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the different types of leagues, and who is eligible for each type?

Co-Rec: Open to males and females, and there is a set number of each gender that must be present, based on the sport.

Open: Open to males and females, but there is no set number of either gender that must be present. A team can be all males, all females or anything in between.

Men’s: Open to males only. This is offered when a separate women’s league is also offered.

Women’s: Open to females only. If a women’s league is not offered or filled, females are welcome to join a men’s team (which will turn that men’s league into an open league).

Can I play on more than one team in the same league?

No. Participants can only play on one single-gendered/open team and one co-rec team per sport.

What's the difference between A and B leagues?

A leagues are more competitive and most players (if not all) have played on a travel/club/varsity team before.

B leagues are more recreational in nature and consist of teams with a wider range of skill levels.

Will you hold a spot for my team if I haven't created the team online?

No. Only teams that have completed the entire registration process will be approved.

If my team receives a forfeit, are we still eligible for the playoffs?

Yes, but your team’s sportsmanship grade for that game will be a “1.” You need an average of “3” in sportsmanship to qualify for the playoffs, and a “1” from a forfeit can significantly hurt your average.

If my team receives a default, are we still eligible for the playoffs?

Yes. Because you let the Student Programs Manager know in advance, you receive a loss but are still eligible for playoffs. Your team will receive a “3” in sportsmanship for that game. You need an average of “3” in sportsmanship to qualify for the playoffs.

Do individual players have to play in a regular season game in order to participate in a playoff game?

No, but you do need to be on the team’s roster online prior to the end of the league’s regular season. The deadline to be on the online roster is listed on the IMLeagues website.

How are playoff seeds determined?

  1. Win percentage
  2. Sportsmanship
  3. Head-to-head
  4. Point differential
