What is Intramural Sports?

The Intramural Sports Program is a program offered by the Department of Recreation & Wellness and is directed by the Assistant Director for Competitive Sports. We offer a variety of competitive and recreational activities for the campus population. Games are played against other UNC Greensboro students. Some activities include flag football, basketball, soccer and volleyball.

Who is eligible to play intramural sports?

Intramural leagues/events are offered to all currently enrolled fee-paying students free of charge and everyone is encouraged to participate. Faculty and staff who are members of the Kaplan Center are also eligible to participate. Each participant is required to set up their personal account on IMLeagues.com prior to the start of the season in order to complete a waiver.

Participants are required to provide their UNC Greensboro SpartanCard at each competition.

What leagues/divisions are offered?

Currently, the Intramural Sports Program primarily offers Open divisions (no gender requirements/restrictions for rosters.) Select leagues/events will also include separate Women’s and CoRec (coed) divisions. The Intramural Sports Program uses a participant’s self-identified gender when gender-specific roster requirements exist.

To see a list of what activities are available, please visit the Registration Information page.

What is the difference between CoRec and Open leagues?

Both CoRec and Open leagues/divisions are comprised of both men and women playing together on the same team. Many sports offer CoRec divisions, including indoor volleyball, indoor soccer, outdoor soccer, and basketball. CoRec leagues have specific requirements regarding the number of men and women on a team. Open leagues do not have gender requirements for teams.

Please refer to the Rules page for sport specific questions regarding team rosters.

I want to register, but I don’t have a team.

If you are interested in playing in a sport, but do not have a team, you may register as a Free Agent. To register as a Free Agent, you will need to register through IMLeagues. There is no fee to register as a Free Agent. Free Agents should attend the captain’s meeting for the sport they are interested in playing so that teams still looking for players can find you. In the event that enough Free Agents register to form a Free Agents team, you will be contacted by a member of the Intramural Sports Staff.

Intramural Sports does not guarantee that you will be able to play if you register as a free agent. We will try our best to place you on a team.

When do games take place?

Games generally take place Sunday through Thursday from 4:00pm – 11:00pm. Teams may play once or twice a week.

Where do games take place?

Intramural Sports games take place at the Kaplan Center, Recreation Field or Outdoor Courts. The Recreation Field is located on the south side of the baseball stadium. Sand Volleyball games are played at the Outdoor Courts located north of the Soccer Stadium along the Irwin Belk Recreation Track.

Is there an entry fee?

Most intramural leagues & events are free of charge to participate in. Some special events may require an entry fee. This information will be provided with the registration materials.

What if my team cannot make our scheduled game time?
If a team knows in advance that it will be unable to field the minimum number of players required to play, they are asked to communicate a “Default” by emailing intra@uncg.edu before 3:00 p.m. the day of the game, or Friday for Saturday and Sunday games. This allows the office staff to notify the other team and potentially have another team pick up your game. The benefits of declaring a default include avoiding a forfeit fee, reduced impact on sportsmanship rating and demonstrates respect for other teams participating in the league.

In some instances a team may find out after 3:00pm that it cannot make the scheduled game. Teams can add new players to it’s roster prior to the start of playoffs. New players may be added in advance via IMLegues.com or on-site provided the new players are not currently playing with another team in the same league. If it is just not possible if a few members attend may be able to recruit other participants that would be playing before or after your game to assist in a scrimmage so your opponent still receives a game.

What does a forfeit mean and how can I avoid getting one?

A team forfeits if they fail to default and do not have the minimum number of required players present at game time. If a team forfeits the team will be assessed a $10.00 forfeit fee that one individual of the team must pay prior to their next scheduled game or by the end of the regular season, whichever occurs first, in order to continue their participation that season. If a team forfeits, the listed team captain will be contact and provided instructions for paying the fee. It must be paid at the Recreation & Wellness Administration Suite (room 212 in the Kaplan Center) during regular business hours. It is recommended to keep the receipt as proof of payment, especially for last-minute payments. The intramural staff cannot accept payments at the game sites. It is the entire team’s responsibility to know it’s schedule and to show up on time. (Teams are encouraged to show up 15-minutes prior to the scheduled start time so that games may begin on time). If a team forfeits a second time during the season, the team will be removed from the league and ineligible for playoffs.

What happens if my team forfeits?

When a team forfeits for the first time during the regular season, the team will be required to pay a $10.00 forfeit fee. The forfeit fee can be paid at the Recreation & Wellness Administrative Suite located on the 4th floor of the Kaplan Center during normal business hours. The fee must be paid prior to the team’s next scheduled competition in order to remain in the league. After paying the fee, the team must present the payment receipt to the supervisor on duty at the playing site. Failure to present the receipt will result in the team not being allowed to play.

If a team forfeits a second time during the regular season or once during playoffs, the offending team will be removed from further competition in the league.

Are there job opportunities with Intramural Sports?

Each semester the Intramural Sports Program seeks to hire sport officials that are cross trained and utilized as both officials and scorekeepers. After working for a semester individuals are eligible to apply to become a Competitive Sports Supervisor.

If you love sports and have a desire to make some money, contact the Competitive Sports Coordinator at intra@uncg.edu or apply directly at https://recwell.uncg.edu/employment. Training for officials takes place during the weeks prior to the start of the season and consists of classroom, on-court/field and practice games for league sports. Tournaments will have a one-day clinic prior to the weekend tournament.
