Frequently Asked Questions
What is Intramural Sports?
The Intramural Sports Program is a program offered by the Department of Campus Recreation and is directed by the Assistant Director for Intramural and Club Sports. We offer a variety of competitive and recreational activities for the campus population. Games are played against other UNCG students. Some activities include flag football, basketball, soccer and volleyball.
Who is eligible to play intramural sports?
Intramural Sports is offered to all currently enrolled fee-paying students free of charge and everyone is encouraged to participate. Each student must show a valid UNCG ID card in order to participate. Intramural Sports is also open to faculty and staff who are members of the Student Recreation Center.
What leagues are offered?
Currently, the Intramural Sports Program offers Open, Men’s, Women’s and CoRec leagues. In an attempt to meet the competitive needs of our participants, both competitive and recreational divisions are offered. To see a list of what activities are available, please visit the Sign-Up Dates and Times page.
What is the difference between CoRec and Open leagues?
Both CoRec and Open leagues are comprised of both men and women playing together on the same team. Many sports offer CoRec divisions, including indoor volleyball, indoor soccer, outdoor soccer, and basketball. CoRec leagues have specific requirements regarding the number of men and women on a team. Open leagues do not have gender requirements for teams.
Please refer to the Rules page for sport specific questions regarding team rosters.

Both individuals and teams are welcome to sign up. Sign-up dates are listed in the Campus Recreation calendar or on the Intramural Sports Sign-Up Times page.

I want to sign-up, but I don’t have a team.
If you are interested in playing in a sport, but do not have a team, you may register as a Free Agent. To register as a Free Agent, you will need to complete the on-line registration form. There is no fee to register as a Free Agent. Free Agents should attend the captain’s meeting for the sport they are interested in playing so that teams still looking for players can find you. In the event that enough Free Agents register to form a Free Agents team, you will be contacted by a member of the Intramural Sports Staff.
Intramural Sports does not guarantee that you will be able to play if you sign up as a free agent. We will try our best to place you on a team.
When do games take place?
Games generally take place Sunday through Thursday from 4:00pm – 11:00pm. Teams may play once or twice a week.
Where do games take place?
Intramural Sports games take place at the Student Recreation Center or on the Recreation Field. The Recreation Field is located on the south side of the baseball stadium. Sand Volleyball games are played at the Outdoor Courts located north of the Soccer Stadium along the Irwin Belk Recreation Track.
Is there an entry fee?
Most intramural leagues & events are free of charge to participate in. Some special events may require an entry fee. This information will be provided with the registration materials.
What does a forfeit mean and how can I avoid getting one?
A team forfeits if they fail to have the minimum number of players present at game time. If a team forfeits for whatever reason that team will be assessed a $10.00 forfeit fee. The forfeit fee must be paid at the Campus Recreation Administrative Office before the team’s next scheduled game. Failure to do so will result in the team being removed from the league. The Intramural Staff will not accept forfeit fees at the game sites. It is the entire team’s responsibility to know when it’s games are scheduled and to show up on time (it is recommended that teams show up 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time so that games may begin on time). If a team forfeits twice it is removed from the league and will not be allowed to compete in playoffs.
What happens if my team forfeits?
When a team forfeits for the first time during the regular season, the team will be required to pay a $10.00 forfeit fee. The forfeit fee can be paid at the Campus Recreation Administrative Suite located on the 4th floor of the Student Recreation Center during normal business hours. The fee must be paid prior to the team’s next scheduled competition in order to remain in the league. After paying the fee, the team must present the payment receipt to the supervisor on duty at the playing site. Failure to present the receipt will result in the team not being allowed to play.
If a team forfeits a second time during the regular season or once during playoffs, the offending team will be removed from further competition in the league.
