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. Eighty-eight 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.

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 team and one co-rec team per sport.

What's the difference between competitive and recreational leagues?

Recreational leagues are for teams that are just there for fun. Participants new to a sport or who have limited experience may prefer recreational leagues.

Competitive leagues value winning and primarily consist of participants who have played the sport before or are comfortable with the sport.

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
