What sports and events are offered?Sport Programs offers 20-30 different leagues and tournaments each academic year. To view the current semester's offerings, visit the Intramural Sports Calendar page.
What are league sports?League sports are most commonly played as a team, with the exception of individual sports, like Racquetball or Table Tennis. Each team in a league sport will usually play 3-4 games over a 2-4 week period, followed by a single elimination playoff bracket.
What are special event tournaments?Throughout the academic year, Sport Programs will offer one-day tournaments for all members of the Winthrop University community. The tournament formats are either single or double elimination, depending on the number of teams that register to participate. One-day tournaments allow students the opportunity to participate without the longer commitment that a league sport would require.
What is IMLeagues?IMLeagues is a online web program that Sport Programs utilizes to allow Intramural Sports participants to register for an Intramural Sport, receive game schedules, view season and playoff standings and communicate with teammates or the Sport Programs staff. IMLeagues registration information can be found on the Intramural Sports home page. All participants must have an IMLeagues account to participate in the Intramural Sports program.
How do we know when we play?When registration has ended, the Intramural Sports staff will create league schedules within IMLeagues. Participants can view their game schedule by logging into their IMLeagues account or by downloading the Rec*It app (Download for Android | Download for iOS) on the mobile device of their choosing.
Are there team practices?Teams coordinate their own practices. You can practice as much or as little as you want; however, Sport Programs does not schedule times for Intramural Sports teams to practice. Because Intramural Sports teams cannot reserve space to practice, use of facility space is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Teams can also practice at the recreational fields for outdoor sports. Prior to practicing, teams are asked to contact the Assistant Director for Sport Programs to inquire about field availability.
What do I receive for winning a league or tournament?All participants who win their respective league or tournament are awarded an Intramural Sports champion t-shirt.
Still have questions?The Sport Programs office is located in West Center 211. You can also email or call the Assistant Director for Sport Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org or 803/323-2354.
