Get in the Game
Looking to continue your athletic career at Salisbury University? Intramural Sports may be the answer. We've got over 20 sports and events each year in which you can battle to become an SU Intramural Champion. So how can you get involved? Here are some tips to help you. Get in the Game with Intramural Sports.
If you're used to playing the traditional team sports, then try our Intramural Sports League. We've set up leagues for men's, women's, and co-rec (men & women) teams of all different skill levels in a variety of sports.
Forming a Team
The easiest way to get involved in team sports is to form a team on your own. You and a couple friends, perhaps the hall of your dorm or the neighbors in your apartment complex. Student organizations such as fraternities and sororities as well as other campus groups often put together teams. Ask your organization at its next group meeting. To find out how many players you'll need for a complete team, browse through the sport rules available online.
How to Register
Once you've got a squad together, you'll need to register. The key here is to REGISTER EARLY! So, when you do register? Well, each sport has its own registration period. To find out when that is for each sport, check our Intramural schedule for each semester. The Intramural schedule is available online and in the Intramural Sports Office, room 146, located in the Maggs Physical Activities Center, approximately 2 months prior to each semester. So, you'll have plenty of time to plan for upcoming sports.
You'll register for most sports online via the Intramural Sports website using imleagues. If online registration is not available, then simply stop by room 146B, Maggs Gym, to register. We recommend registering on the FIRST DAY of the registration period.
Team sport registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. In general, leagues are set-up so that each team plays once each week for four straight weeks with a three-week playoff tournament following the regular season.
Mandatory Captains Meetings
Once you've registered a team, you or a teammate MUST attend the mandatory captains meeting for the sport. Someone must be designated the team captain. The date, time, and place of the captains meeting is listed on the Intramural schedule and displayed during registration at the Intramural Sports website. Even if you're an expert in the sport, you or a teammate MUST make the meeting. If you're not at the meeting, there is a $25.00 fine or we'll DROP your team from the league immediately. It's mandatory, so make it there. The captains meeting typically takes about 25 minutes and covers the sports rules and eligibility requirements for your players and Intramural Policies and Procedures.
Regular Season Schedules & Team Rosters
Regular season team schedules, for the majority of teams, are available online a few days following the captains meeting. Simply print it out and you'll have the teams you will be playing throughout the season. On the night of your game, your team members should arrive at least 15 minutes early to sign-in at the game site. An SU Gull Card is required for all participants. Players can only play on ONE team at a time and once a player has joined a team he/she can NOT switch to another team. Play each game with good sportsmanship and conduct (we have team sportsmanship requirements) and you'll advance to the playoffs. There is another meeting for team captains before the playoffs. More information about the playoff structure, sportsmanship, and other sport requirements will be discussed at the captains meeting prior to the season.
Team Sports Free Agents
OK, so all this stuff about registering a team is great, but what if you don't know enough people to form a team on your own? Well, for most of our major team sports, we will put together a free agents list. To register as a free agent for a sport, sign up in the Free Agents on the imleagues website. The IM Free Agents are advertised to existing teams so they contact you about joining their team, or may contact them. If that doesn't happen, we put together teams of all free agents to compete in our leagues.
If sports for one and/or for you and a partner are what you're looking for, try one of our individual or dual sports tournaments. Singles and doubles tournaments are available.
How to Register & Getting Your Schedule
Registering for individual and dual sports takes place online and/or in our Maggs Physical Activities Center Office. When a fee is involved, registration in the Intramural Sports Office is required. Otherwise, you'll be able to enter your registration information on our website to sign-up. The Intramural Schedule will indicate when online registration is available for a particular sport. Typically, when online registration is available you will be required to register that way; no registrations will be taken in our office in that case. Therefore, check the Intramural website for online registration information.
