Registration Information

Players can sign up for Intramurals as a team or free agent.

If you’re registering a team, you’ll need to identify a team captain.

The team captain is our main point on contact that the league office communicates with for any league specific information.

Some of the duties of the team captain include:
- Ensure all players are on the team roster and no INELIGIBLE players take the field of play.
- Ensure all players are aware of the specific rules of the sport they are playing.
- Ensure all players are aware of the team schedule and other league resources found on IMLeagues.

- Ensure all players team spectators understand that alcohol is prohibited on all fields of play and no one is allowed to play while under the influence of alcohol or any illicit drugs.
- Ensure that all referees and other participants are treated with respect.

All other captain information including: captain's quiz, rule books, schedules, stats an standings can be found on IMLeagues.

If you’re registering as a free agent, we will place you on a team of fellow free agent’s.

Free Agents are individuals that have registered to a sport/division. We take all the Free Agents for all the different sports and divisions and create teams that are solely Free Agent players. Each Free agent team is denoted with an "x-" in front of their team name (i.e "X-Spain" or "X-Blue Jays").

All other information about your free agent team including: rule books, schedules, stats an standings can be found on IMLeagues.
