INTRAMURAL SPORTS: HOW ALL THIS WORKS
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? Well, 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 an Intramural Sports league.
We 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 at 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 IM
Sports Office 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 web site using
imleagues. If online
registration is not available, then simply stop
by room 146B, Maggs Gym, to register. We advise
attempting to register on the FIRST DAY of the
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
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 web site. Even if you're
an expert in the sport, you or a teammate still
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.
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 who you play 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 and behave yourself (we
have team sportsmanship requirements) and you'll
advance to the playoffs. There is another
meeting for team captains before the playoffs.
More about the playoff structure, sportsmanship,
and other sport requirements will be discussed
at the captains meeting prior to the season.
Team Sport 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 free agent lists. 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 and ask you to join their
team, or may you may contact them. If that
doesn't happen, then we'll put together teams of
all free agents to compete in our leagues.
If sports for one or for you and a partner are
what you're looking for, then try an 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 in our 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
web site 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.
Still Have Questions?
No problem. Simply stop by the Campus
Recreation Office in 146, Maggs Gym any weekday
and speak to our friendly office staff. Or, you
