Do I have to sign up a complete team or can I sign up as an individual?
Nope! While you can sign up a full team, you can also sign up as an individual and we will match you up with other individuals to form a team. All individuals will need to attend the Captain and Individual Participant meeting to meet other players, identify a team captain, and identify a team name. Individual Player sign up is not offered for Battleship, 4x4 Dodgeball, Wallyball, and 4x4 Volleyball.
Do I need my roster to register my team? (NEW 2014-2015)
We have moved to Online Registration with IM Leagues. Captains will first create teams and then invite and confirm team members. Once a team has reached the minimum roster numbers, captains can select the preferred time and date for play
What is the cost?
Team and Individual registration fees can be found at www.imleagues.com/indiana.
What is the difference between Leagues and Tournaments?
Intramural Sports offers a wide variety of Leagues based on the experience participants would like to have with Intramural Sports, their skill level, and their affinity group. These leagues are 5 weeks in duration and, depending on the league structure may include a playoff option. Intramural Sports offer various single day and multi-day tournaments. Tournaments differ from Leagues because they do not possess an extended regular season format. Tournaments are classified based on the skill level of participants
What is the difference between Competitive and Recreational Leagues?
Competitive - Designed for the sport enthusiasts who wish to apply their skills in a competitive environment at a high level in pursuit of a championship. Participants seeking this competitive sport setting will be guaranteed a three game regular season followed by a single elimination playoff for qualifying teams.
Recreation - Designed for players who are seeking a purely recreational experience. In this league participants will experience a more leisure setting where social and fitness benefits are desired over competition. Participants seeking this recreational experience will be guaranteed a five game regular season without playoffs.
Where are games played?
Intramural Sports uses multiple locations:
· Student Recreational Sports Center (SRSC)
o CBAC Aquatic Pavilion
o Center Courts (4&5)
o North Terrace
o Racquetball Hallway
· Wildermuth Intramural Center (WIC)

How do I know when games/play starts?
Personalized schedules are located on your IM Leagues homepage. Our staff will send out notification once schedules have been released.
How many games will I play?
Competitive League sports typically have a 3 game regular season (pool play) plus “playoffs”.
Recreational League sports typically have a 5 game regular season, without “playoffs”.
Tournament sports typically have one day of games plus one day “playoffs”.
Will there be a “post season?”
Competitive League Sports ONLY: (NEW 2014-2015)
At the end of the “regular season” all eligible teams (no forfeited games, maintain 3.0 sportsmanship rating, and attend the Captain and Player meeting) will enter a single elimination bracket where all teams are guaranteed one game unless your team continues to advance through the tournament to the championship.
