How much does it cost to participate?

Each sport varies in price. We have team sports and individual sports. The entry fee for team sports varies based on the event which is usually around $5-$10/per person. The individual sports such as Bowling, Golf, etc. will cost whatever the business charges.

Guest Fee -- $25 semester: Intramural participants (non UVU students or students taking a semester off) will be able to pay a semester “Guest Fee” for $25, which will allow them to participate in Intramurals for the semester,

How do I get on a team if I don't have one?

If you don't have a team and would like to be on one, register on, sign up as a Free Agent in the division you want to play and request to be on a team. Contact the captain of the team before you join their team.  Call our office if you have any questions. 801-863-5568.

Will there still be events if there is bad weather?

In the event of inclement weather, we will post updates on Facebook, Twitter and our website.  No decision will be made until 3:00pm on that day.  The Intramural Sports Office will contact teams through to inform them that contests are cancelled due to weather.

Does Intramurals have job opportunities?

Intramural Sports uses Student Officials for all of its team officiated sports. Prior experience is helpful but not needed to become a member of the Intramural Sports Officiating Team. We also look for Event Managers and Office Staff and welcome work study. If you are interested in working with us, come to the Intramural office for more information or check online for job postings.

What constitutes a forfeit?

A team does not have the minimum number required to play at game time (Exception: the opposing team grants a 10 minute grace period).  A forfeit of this nature will count as a loss and result in an automatic 3 for Sportsmanship.  Teams will be allowed 2 forfeits per season.

After 1 forfeit a team is no longer eligible for playoffs.  A team will be removed from the league once the second forfeit is received.

Teams must be signed in and ready to play at the time of the scheduled contest to avoid penalties.  Therefore, it is suggested that teams arrive at least 15 minutes before game time to allow for parking, signing in, and warming up.

What if I have a protest about a call made by an official?

Protests on rule interpretation, discrepancy, and eligibility must be filed by the Team Captain before the next legal live play. Protests on judgment calls are not allowed.

What does the Champion get?

Intramural Champion t-shirts will be awarded for all sports (except those sports that do not meet the minimum requirement for the number of entries to conduct the event).  

Can I play on more than one team?

You are able to play in each sport we offer.  Anyone who plays for two teams in the same sport shall be ineligible for all future games in that sport for the remainder of the semester.  The second team for which the player played shall receive a forfeit loss for each game in which the ineligible player participated.
