Does it cost to play intramural sports?

How do I register for intramurals?

Each individual must create his/her own IM leagues account to be able to register for intramural sports. Click here to create an IM leagues account. While creating an account‚ individuals must use their UIC email address and full first and last name. Shortened names (Patrick to Pat or Timothy to Tim) will not work. After creating an account‚ participants may register online at www.imleagues.com/uic. There will be a complete list of current events and the registration dates for each event.]

When can I register for intramural sports?

Individuals may register a team for intramural sports while the registration for that particular sport is open. Once the registration has closed‚ individuals may only register as roster additions to already existing teams. Individuals may add to a roster up to the last game of the regular season for a team. Participants must add themselves to a roster prior to 3p of the scheduled game day to be officially on the roster for that day.

Do I have to attend a captain’s meeting?

Team captains are no longer required to attend a mandatory captain’s meeting. Instead‚ each team captain will be responsible for completing a mandatory captain’s quiz in order to be considered eligible to participate. The captain’s quiz is approximately 15-30 questions and can be done online immediately following the team registration process. Captain’s must achieve an 85% on the quiz in order to pass. Captains are allowed to take the quiz as many times as needed.

Please contact Christian ahead of time if you have a schedule conflict.

What if I register a team that does not meet the minimum player requirement?

All registered teams must have a complete roster on www.imleagues.com/uic in order to be considered eligible to participate. If a team does not have a complete roster after registration has closed‚ they will be placed on a waitlist and will not be allowed to participate. Each individual member of a team must create his/her own IM leagues account and add themselves to their desired team roster. Without doing this‚ the individual will not be able to add themselves to any roster.

How many teams am I allowed to play on?

You are allowed to play on one co-recreational team and one team based on gender.

My intramural team cannot make it to our game tonight‚ what should we do?

League games will not be rescheduled. If possible‚ you should call the intramural office by noon to default your contest. If you default‚ your team will not be charged a $25 fine. If you fail to show without notice‚ it will be considered a forfeit and your team captain will be charged $25. The penalty must be paid before the next contest. We will attempt to reschedule tournament games if the schedule allows us to do so.

What do we get if we win a league or tournament?

You receive an intramural championship t-shirt.

I would like to play intramurals‚ but I can’t find a team. What should I do?

Individuals may register as a free agent through www.imleagues.com/uic. As a free agent‚ you will be placed on the free agent list that teams in each specific sport may view. Free agents may also send requests to teams asking to join their team.

How are the leagues and tournaments divided up?

Intramural sports are first divided into three different leagues:  men’s‚ women’s and co-rec. The co-rec league is designed for men and women who choose to play together. If there are not enough participants for a co-rec league‚ women will be allowed into the men’s league.

If enough teams register‚ an effort will be made to set up competitive & recreational divisions. If there are not enough teams‚ there will be an open league.
