Intramural Sports

Intramural sports are for students who want to play an organized sport but are not members of a varsity team. The Department of Campus Recreation organizes games for four leagues. In addition to the traditional men’s and women’s league, we offer an organization league (where each team is a club or organization) and an open league (where athletes are not sorted with regard to gender, gender identity or gender expression).

The sports played vary from year-to-year based on the student body’s interest. Some of the intramural sports offered are:

  • 3v3 and full-team Basketball
  • Soccer
  • Racquetball
  • Softball
  • Dodgeball (and Extreme Dodgeball)
  • Street hockey
  • Table tennis
  • Flag football
  • Tennis
  • Volleyball
