Can I play on multiple intramural teams?

Yes, you can play on more than one intramural team if your teams are playing in a variety of sports.

Please note: ICE HOCKEY is an exception. You may only play on ONE ice hockey team to create capacity for more students to play. If you wish to play hockey more per week you can check out our Rec Hockey schedule here.

In other leagues, players can play on more than one team in the same sport, however, only on one mixed team and one men’s or women’s team. You cannot play for 2 mixed, 2 men’s, or 2 women’s teams of different divisions (A,B, or recreational).

What is protest and appeals?

The Protests and Appeals (P&A) committee deals with suspensions, ineligible players and any other misconducts or incidents that occur during intramural games. Meetings are held EVERY TUESDAY AT 6:30pm IN THE IM OFFICE. You MUST attend  P&A before you are allowed to play again.

What time do I play? Where do I play? Who am I playing?

Team schedules will be posted on the IMLeagues website. These schedules will be posted shortly after registration closes; latest by 12:00pm on the Saturday before Intramurals start. These schedules will tell you where your games will be played, who you will be playing, and the time of your game.

  • Find your league schedule by going to IM Leagues, click on “University of Guelph” in the top left hand corner of the screen
  • Click on your league from the list (e.g. (M) Competitive A Basketball).
  • Once on the League page you will be able to view upcoming games, schedules, and statistics

What happens if our score is recorded incorrectly?

Unfortunately this happens from time to time. It is best to contact the Intramural Office as soon as you notice an error. The Intramural Office can be contacted by email at or by phone at 519-824-4120 ex. 56137. The Intramural Office will look into the error and make amendments online when necessary.

What happens if I forget my student card?

Grace Passes available at Client Services.  University of Guelph ID and any government issued photo ID will be accepted to sign into your games. Player’s will not be permitted to play an Intramural game if their name is not printed on the scorecard.

What happens if I'm not on the scorecard?

Come to the IM Office and we will sort out the reason why you are not appearing on the scorecard. If you are eligible to play for the team, you will be given an OK TO PLAY slip.

Why do I need a valid university of guelph student card or athletics membership card every game?

To remain consistent and to be fair to all participants, other forms of photo ID are NOT accepted. It is the only way we can truly know that you are a valid University of Guelph Student. Requiring valid IDs is consistent to gain access to the Athletics Centre, Library and Guelph Transit. We are trying to stay CONSISTENT by enforcing the same procedures in all areas.

Who can play Intramurals?

The Recreation Membership is a pre-requisite to play Intramurals.  

Students: You already have a ‘Recreation Membership’ if you are a University of Guelph student (full or part-time undergraduate student or full-time graduate student) that is enrolled in the current semester since you have already paid the ‘Athletic Fee’ (Athletic Fee = Recreation Membership) within the Compulsory Fee portion of your tuition. Your Recreation Membership includes limited access to the building including Intramurals.

Can varsity players be on my team?

Varsity Athletes in a return to train scenario are still considered varsity athletes and continue to be ineligible for intramural sports of the same sport they play.

Varsity players may NOT take part in Intramural competition in the sport they play intercollegiate, players who quit or have left the intercollegiate team are not allowed in their respective sports until the FOLLOWING ACADEMIC YEAR after they have quit or their eligibility expires.


Every division in our competitive brackets have playoffs.

Teams - Every team in the league makes playoffs REGARDLESS of standing in the regular season.

Individual Players - Players must participate in at least ONE THIRD (2 OF 6) of their team's regular season games to be eligible to compete in the playoffs (special eligibility rules apply for Ice Hockey leagues).


When you register or join a team on IM Leagues, you will have accepted the waiver.
