Q: What is the difference between Crimson, Coed, & Open league types?
A: Crimson leagues are for those that truly want to win. Emphasis is heavy on the competition side of the intramural game. Coed leagues have teams that are made up of males and females and generally include an equal number of each playing on the field at the same time (see league rules for further explanation). Open leagues impose no gender restrictions and emphare for those looking to get out and play their favorite sports. 
Q: What activities does Intramural Sports offer?
A: Intramural Sports offer a wide range of leagues and tournaments based on the season.  Annually, Intramural Sports offers leagues for Basketball, Volleyball, Dodgeball, Flag Football, Softball, and Outdoor/Indoor Soccer.  Intramural Sports also offers tournaments throughout the year such as Archery Tag, Basketball, Badminton, Pickle Ball, Spikeball, Tennis, Ultimate Frisbee, Wiffleball, and Ultimate Frisbee.
