Intramural Sports and Special Events
The Intramural Sports program offers a variety of leagues, tournaments, challenges, and events each quarter. Intramural sports games are played between players and teams from within the University community, as opposed to external competitors. Intramural Sports does not provide intercollegiate competition or practice time.
All intramural sports events are open to students, faculty, and staff with current memberships.
