Recreational Sports Programs

Intramurals

The intramural sports program at the University of Washington is designed to provide an opportunity for every student, faculty or staff member to participate in organized recreational competition. Structured leagues, tournaments, and special events are offered in a variety of sports activities each quarter. If you are interested in one of the available activities and do not have a team, you are encouraged to sign up on the “Free Agent” roster (please sign up on IMLeagues.com before the registration deadline). If you have a team, register online before the registration deadline (ima.rsp.washington.edu).  Leagues fill up quickly, so register early. First come, first served. Captains then need to sign up their teams on IMLeagues.com, add players to their roster and take the captain’s quiz. Free agents then attend a free agents’ meeting prior to the beginning of league play.

Spirit of Competition

Sport activities find their origin in the basic human need for the spirit of play. Winning and losing are mere outcomes of this play spirit. What is part of the game is the pure satisfaction of participation (fun, fitness, friendships, stress release, etc…). Without your opponent, you have no game, no contest, and no fun. You are indebted to them, as they are to you. The spirit of play, then, is based on cooperation. Upholding high standards of integrity and fair play acknowledges this idea of cooperative competition. All players are encouraged to exercise good judgment in caring for the safety of others as well as themselves. In UW intramural sports, an intentional violation of the rules is considered cheating and a gross offense against the spirit of competition. Abusive language towards officials or other participants, and manipulation of the rules are not “part of the game.” A lifetime interest in sports is a goal for all players, which has more meaning than that of a win or a loss, the memory of which often fades quickly. All players are asked to participate within the context of this spirit of play.
