If you’re used to playing traditional team sports, or want to give one a try, register a team for an Intramural Sports league. We set up leagues for Men’s, Women’s and Co-Rec (males and females) teams of all different skill levels in a number of different sports. Forming a Team The easiest, and most common, way to get involved in team sports is to form a team of your own. It could be you and some friends, maybe the people of your residence hall or the neighbors in your apartment complex, as long as they are all students, faculty and/or staff of The University of Iowa and have paid the Intramural Sports Participation Fee. 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 will need for a complete team, check out each sport’s rules prior to registration. Registering a Team Almost all of our registration is done using the website IMLeagues.com. Information on how to create a team using IMLeagues.com can be found by checking out each sport’s information page here. Registration is quick and easy. The key is to know registration time-frames, and get your teams put together and ready-to-go before the deadlines. Then when all your teammates have been added to the team roster, you can simply select a spot in the league or division, and you will be ready to go. Scheduling For bigger team sports, Flag Football, Volleyball, Softball, Soccer, and Basketball, teams will be scheduled to play once a week during the regular season. During registration, teams will select what day, and sometimes the time, they would like to play based on the available options. Having your team prepared and registering right away when registration opens will allow a better chance at getting the division you would like, as registration occurs on a first-come, first-served basis. Team Captain Requirements Prior to registering a team, the team captain will need to pass that sport’s captain’s quiz on IMLeagues.com for the sports of Flag Football, Volleyball, Dodgeball, Soccer, Basketball and Softball. We produce captain’s guides that you can use and we post rules you can read to assist you in passing each sport’s captain’s quiz. As a team captain, you are in charge of making sure all participants on your team are eligible according to eligibility requirements stated in the Intramural Sports Rules and Regulations. You are also responsible for the sportsmanlike behavior of your teammates and fans. Finally, as team captain, you will serve as your team’s main contact for any instances in which the Intramural Sports Staff needs to contact your team.

If you do not have enough people to form your own team, you are considered a "Free Agent" for that sport. To try and get connected with other participants looking to form a team, you can join our Iowa Intramural Sports Free Agent group on Facebook by clicking here. Join this group, and you can connect with other people looking for teammates, or captains looking for players to add to their teams!

Intramural teams are free to practice as much or as little as they want. The Intramural Sports program DOES NOT schedule practice times for intramural teams. You are free to use our facilities to practice, but teams must follow the rules and restrictions of our recreation facilities.

Intramural Sports hires University of Iowa students to work as officials throughout the year, and as scorekeepers for basketball. You can work as many, or as few, sports as you would like.
