Competitive Division Information

Brief descriptions of the various levels of competition are outlined below. It is up to the participant to choose the division that best meets their individual needs and skills. Divisions apply to Men’s, Women’s, Co-Rec (gender specific rules or player ratio requirements vary by sport), and Open (no gender specific rules or player ratio requirements, recreational in nature) competition and will be offered based upon interest. The intramural staff reserves the right to place teams or individuals in the appropriate competitive division. The goal is to have participants seek competition at their own ability levels; this allows players of differing skill to participate and enjoy a similar measure of satisfaction and success. Both experienced and novice players are welcomed and encouraged to participate in intramural activities. It may be necessary to combine divisions or classes in the case of limited entries.

Team Sports

Open Division:  In an effort to eliminate barriers and maximize access, inclusion and acceptance, several of our intramural team-based offerings promote open leagues, where there are no gender designations, requirements, or altered playing rules.  Leagues are recreational in nature, and their purpose is to promote friendly competition among all participants; not as a way for gender-designated teams to circumvent more appropriate league competition.

Rainier Division: This is a recreational division and applies to all sports. It offers a more recreational environment for teams that desire to participate in a more relaxed atmosphere. Competition is open to undergraduate students only, unless an Olympic Division is not offered.

Olympic Division: This is a recreational division and applies to Flag Football, Basketball, Soccer, Softball and Volleyball. Competition is open to graduate students and faculty/staff members only. Undergraduate students may be permitted to participate in this division with permission from the Intramural Manager.

Cascade Division: This division is offered for teams seeking a high level of competition (e.g., advanced-skill players, former high school varsity athletes) and is offered for most sports. Faculty/staff and graduate students may participate in this division as well.

Individual & Dual Sports

Class A: For individuals who possess advanced skills (high school varsity level), have experience in competitive play, or have previously won a Class B tournament.

Class B: For individuals who possess intermediate skills, have some competitive experience, or have won a Class C tournament.

Class C: For novices with no tournament experience, or with less than one year playing experience.
