Registration Information - Now closed for Fall 2020.

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 attend Protest & Appeals when ejected from games or receive major disciplinary action.
  • 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.

COVID-19 Live Intramural Protocol

Please read the COVID-19 protocol for live Intramural leagues that are running in the Fall 2020 season.

COVID-19 Protocols for live Intramural leagues (Fall 2020):

Student, staff, faculty and community members’ health and safety is our top priority. We have a shared responsibility to observe all virus precautionary measures in our operations and everyday routines in order to minimize exposure to COVID-19.

The following general protocols will apply to all Intramural leagues played in-person at the Athletics Centre for Fall 2020 season:

  • Daily attestation through our University of Guelph self-assessment tool.
  • Maintain physical distancing of two meters (six feet) at all times when using Athletics facilities and when on the field of play.
  • Face coverings need to be worn at all times when using Athletics facilities.
  • Face coverings may only be removed during physical activity but must be worn by players on the bench. - All league officials will wear face coverings at all times. - Greet people with a wave instead of a handshake or fist bump.
  • There will be no handshakes at the conclusion of games.
  • No spectating of leagues is permitted.
  • Teams are encouraged to show up on time for their games as hanging out before and after games will not be permitted.

For the Fall 2020 season, we are committed to a return-to-train environment that focuses on personal fitness/wellness as well as socialization. This current phase does not currently include any return to competition elements. Therefore, all live Intramural leagues will be offered at an Open Fun league level with no playoff component. All games will be monitored by a league official, which means teams are self officiating games. League monitors will sanitize any shared equipment during the set-up and tear down process.

We have built-in a 30-minute buffer between games this season to allow for current teams to exit the field of play safety before the next cohort of teams arrives to play. Monitors will also sanitize any equipment that was used in the previous match before the next game begins.

As part of our continued contact tracing efforts, the following new protocols will be enforced for the Fall 2020 season:

  • All players must swipe their student ID at Client Services when they arrive in our facility.
  • No “Grace Passes” will be sold.
  • Players may use a valid government-issued ID to sign into games if a student ID is forgotten.
  • No “OK to Play” passes will be issued.
  • You must join your team's roster in IMLeagues 48 hours before your game otherwise you will not be permitted to play.
  • If a player’s name is not printed on a scorecard, that player may not play (no exceptions).
  • While maintaining physical distancing, players will show their photo ID or student ID to the league monitor who will check you into the game.
  • Captains/players will not be required to physically sign scorecards.

The Intramural Office will not be open to the general public during the Fall 2020 season. We will however continue to serve our Intramural leagues and participants in a virtual environment. The league office can be reached at 519 824 4120 x56137 or at iplayim@uoguelph.ca.

We will be accepting a limited number of in-person appointments should we not be able to resolve an issue virtually.

Participants can book an appointment using the following link: uoguel.ph/imbooking

If the daily attestation through the self-assessment tool tells you to stay home or if you have a presumptive case of COVID-19 we ask that you follow these steps:

  • Self-isolate at home and avoid coming to the Athletics Centre.
  • If the presumptive case, gets tested (there will be a testing centre at Student Wellness).
  • If you have a confirmed case of Covid-19, please contact Program Supervisor Justin Toth at tothj@uoguelph.ca

We look forward to continuing our Intramural Program this semester and feel confident in the protocols and procedures we have put in place to ensure the healthy and safety of all our participants. Have a fun season and best of luck in all your games. 

Intramural FAQ

Is the Department of Athletics Open due to COVID-19?

The Provincial Government has introduced a new COVID-19 framework. To find out how this will affect you and our programs, please click here to visit gryphons.ca/What’s New.  Everyone is required to complete the U of G COVID-19 Screening Form prior to every visit > uoguel.ph/COVID19screening 

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.

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 or Department of Athletics member paying membership fees. 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.

How many players does our team need to avoid a default?

Team captains pay the bond for the team ($250 for Ice Hockey and $75 for all other sports). The bond is returned in full if no fines are applied to the account. A team can be fined if they default a game, forget to submit their roster on time, player misconduct, or lost or damaged jersey/equipment.
