Intramural FAQ

The following are some commonly asked questions the Intramural staff hear.  If you do not see your question listed here please feel free to send us an email at crec-sports@email.arizona.edu or give us a call 520-621-8708.  

How do I form a team?

Ask other students in your residence halls, classes, and clubs. RA's are also helpful if you are a new student on campus. Intramural Sports are a great way to meet new people and make connections with other students! It is very easy to form a team on IMLeagues.com by sending a request to your friends to join your team, or send a request to be added to a team. 

Once you have a group of people, head to IMLeages.com and determine the time and division you'd like to play in, and select the "Create Team" option. You will need to purchase your player pass and pass the quiz in order to create your team. 

What if I don't have enough people to create my own team?

You simply register yourself as a free agent on IMLeagues.com under the sport you would like to be a free agent for. The Intramural Sports staff will create a team of free agents so that you can meet new people with a similar interest as you.

What happens if the league my team wanted to be in is full?

Our leagues fill on a first come, first serve basis. If the other participants have already filled the time slot that you want, we recommend that you put your team in another time slot right away. Our leagues fill quickly so it is better to get your team in a time slot that you can all play, rather than waiting to see if a team leaves. If someone does drop from the league that you want, then you have the chance to move into that league. We want everyone to be able to play and will do our best to find a place for your team!

Can I play on multiple teams for the same sport?

As part of our policy, we allow participants to play on multiple teams for the same sport as long as they are different leagues. Participants can play on one team within each league for each sport type. For example, you can participate in both a CoRec Soccer Team, Greek Soccer Team, and Recreational Soccer Team. The only exception to this rule is that teams cannot participate on both a competitive and recreational team within a sport. This is to ensure equal and fair play in our leagues.

How do I know if a game is canceled due to weather?

Do not assume that your game is canceled due to rain. In the event of a weather-related cancelation, our Intramural Office Staff will contact the team's captain and inform them the game will be canceled.

What happens if my team does not show up with enough players?

If a team does not show up for a game, or does not have the minimum amount of players to play in their game, this is considered a forfeit. We strongly encourage teams to do everything that they can to avoid a forfeit because it inconveniences that opponent who made sure to show up to the game. In the event of a forfeit, $5 will be charged to the Bursar’s account of each absent team member on the roster.

Default Policy: As a courtesy to their opponents and to avoid receiving a forfeit, a team may request to receive a default for any game they will be unable to attend. In order to do so they must notify the Intramural Sports Office at 520-621-8708 by 12:00 pm on the day of your games. Sunday games must notify our office by 4:00 pm on Friday.  

  • A default is recorded as a loss but does not require a fee payment.
  • A defaulted game will result in 3 sportsmanship points being awarded.

Teams that default or forfeit twice will be removed from the league, and charged a $30.00 drop-out fee.

How do I add players to my team?

You can go to your team in IMLeagues and access your roster, which will have the options to add from there. Each person is required to create an account on IMLeagues.com using their University of Arizona issued email address.

If I have numerous Intramural teams, do I need different captains for each team?

No. You can be the captain of as many teams as you like, but you will be held responsible for all of your teams showing up as well as their conduct. Remember as team captain you serve as the communication link between your team and the Intramural Sports Program. You are responsible for understanding and relaying information to all of your teams.

If I lost my CatCard, can I still play Intramural Sports?

Yes. In order to play Intramural Sports, you can check in with either your CatCard or government issued photo identification. This includes your Driver's License, Government ID, or passport and must be the physical copy of the card. We do not allow people to use UAccess, Facebook or picture of any type of identification.

Why do I have to choose a gender in order to play Intramural Sports?

Intramural Sports has CoRec leagues that require teams to have a certain number of males and females on the field/court at all times. Each person is required to choose a gender that they identify as before the season starts. If anyone would like to change the gender they have listed on IMLeagues.com, please contact Casey Anderson (caseyanderson1@email.arizona.edu) or Laura Ferguson (lferguson@email.arizona.edu) to initiate the process. 

What happens if I know my team cannot make a game?

Teams can default their game by emailing or calling our office before noon the day of their, with the exception of Sunday games. Sunday games must contact our office by 3:00 pm on Friday. Our email is crec-sports@email.arizona.edu, and our phone number is 520-621-8708. 

Defaulted games will result in a loss and a 3 sportsmanship.
