Intramural FAQ’s

  • How do I register an Intramural Team?
    • To Register go here and find the sport and time slot you want.  Only the team captain needs to register and pay the team fee by the deadline.  You will need to pass a captains quiz to check out.  For detailed instructions click here.
  • How many Intramural Teams can I be on?
    • A player may participate on only one team in any of the four divisions (Co-Rec, Men’s, Women’s, or Open) in any activity during a season.
  • How do I switch to a different league once I have completed payment?
    • Once you have paid for an intramural time slot you will need to contact the Intramural Manager (lbowden@uw.edu) to request a switch.  If the schedules have already been made it is unlikely a switch will be granted.  Please make sure you are signing up for a time slot your entire team can play.
  • How do I register as a Free Agent?
    • You can sign up as a Free Agent on our Team Management site IMleagues.com.  You can view detailed instructions here.
  • Do I need to pay to be a Free Agent?
    • You do not need to pay UW Recreation to sign up to be a free agent.  If you are picked up by a team, you may need to give your team your portion of the team fee, please discuss with your team captain.
  • Where do I find the answers for the Intramural quizzes?
    • Every team captain that signs up a team will need to pass a captains quiz before you are allowed to check out.  Answers for these questions can be found in our Intramural Handbook and in the rules for each individual sport.  It is the captain’s responsibility to provide leadership and represent the team with UW Recreation Intramural staff.
  • How do I complete my roster? 
    • You can add team members once you have paid for a team through the online portal.  Roster changes and additions are permitted at any time before Wednesday at 5 pm the last week of the regular season. All changes to the official roster must be made online on our team management site imleagues.com.
  • How do I find out if Intramural games are canceled due to inclimate weather?
    • You can call the Intramural weather line at 206.616.3306If there is no current recording, then there are no cancellations.  Decisions are generally made around 3 pm if the weather has been bad all day, although as weather changes throughout the evening decisions will be made last minute.  Since most of our fields are turf, we do not cancel games due to rain. Considerations are made for lightening, snow, and ice.  If the campus is closed due to inclimate weather, UW Recreation (IMA) will not be open, and games will be canceled.  We will make every effort to post this to our social media accounts and on the weather line but please refer to the University’s inclimate weather policy in this instance and pay attention to the local news and the UW main webpage for campus closure information.
  • What is an Intramural Sports Membership?
    • This membership is created for Summer quarter students and Faculty/Staff that do not want to purchase an IMA Membership but want to participate in outdoor intramurals, without accessing the IMA building.  For more information on eligibility and directions go here.
  • I have more general questions. Where do I go now?
    • You can call our office at 206.543.2571 Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. or email the intramural team at lbowden@uw.edu.
