Intramural FAQ’s

  • How do I register an Intramural Team?
    • To Register go here and select “Register a Team”.  Only the team captain needs to register and pay the team fee by the deadline.  You will need to pass a captains quiz to checkout.  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?
    • To Register go here and select “Register as a player” and then “Become a Free Agent”.  Detailed instructions here.
  • Do I need to pay to be a Free Agent?
    • You do not need to pay UW Recreation to sig 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 captains responsibility to provide leadership and represent the team with UW Recreation Intramural staff.
  • How do I complete my roster? 
    • You can invite 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 6 pm the last week of the regular season. All changes to the official roster must be made online.  To invite, add players to your roster, choose the “Pending Roster” tab. Here you can add and invite players to your roster by entering their UW email address or their student ID number. You can also browse free agents in this screen as well. The “Browse Free Agents” tab will allow you to see people interested in playing each sport, as well as their preferred days and times of play.
  • How do I find out if Intramural games are cancelled due to inclimate weather?
    • You can call the Intramural weather line at 206.616.3306If there is no current recording, then there is no cancellations.  Decisions are generally made around 3pm 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 campus is closed due to inclimate weather, UW Recreation (IMA) will not be open, and games will be cancelled.  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.
