  • How do I register an intramural team?
    All team registrations are done online. Team sports are "instant scheduled" which means that you sign up for the day and time you wish to play. Information on "available leagues" may be picked up the week prior to the registration period so you can select a time and day of the week that would be best for your team. Please have alternate choices in case your first selection is not available. Also remember the earlier in the registration period you sign up, the better your team's chance is of securing your most preferable day and time.

  • Can I play if I don't have a group to form a team?
    Individuals may add their name to the "Free Agents" list located on the Intramural Information Board in Hilltop Center. This list will be made available to all teams looking for additional players at the Captain's Meeting.

  • How many players do I need for a team?
    It depends on the sport you are playing. The number of players can be found under the "Rules & Regulations" section of this page - just click on the sport you are interested in.

  • Where can I find Intramural rules?
    Check out the "Rules & Regulations" section of this page.

  • What are the captains' meetings?
    Team captains meet to cover the rules, policies, and procedures of the sport they are participating in, and to pick up their play schedules.

  • Where are Bollinger Fields located?

  • How do I play in an individual sport?
    To enter an individual sport, stop by the University Recreation & Sport Facilities Office prior to the registration period to pick up information on the sport you are interested in. The information addresses levels of play, fees, and rules. Once you decide if you want to play, simply stop by the UR&SF Office and sign up.

  • Where do games take place?
    The Intramural activities at the university are played in and on some of the most outstanding collegiate recreational facilities in the nation. Indoor sports take place in the McPhee/Olson complex. Basketball takes place in the Olson Addition on a newly resurfaced floor. Volleyball, indoor soccer, dodgeball, and floor hockey take place in the upper level of McPhee. The outdoor intramural facilities have been vastly improved over the past several years. Both fall and spring softball are played at the Bollinger Field complex (south of Sacred Heart Hospital on Stein Blvd.) This complex now boasts five fenced and lighted softball fields. Flag football and soccer teams are also able to compete "under the lights" as their games are scheduled on adjacent lighted fields. Sand volleyball games take place on the recently lit sand courts west of Towers Hall, and tennis players are able to compete on the lights and recently resurfaced Rec tennis courts (directly west of Hilltop Center).

  • Who can be an intramural official?
    If you are energetic, enthusiastic, and want to meet people while you earn some extra spending money, then YOU can be an official. Intramural officials are the backbone of our program. Training is provided so previous experience is not a prerequisite. All you need is the desire to learn and have fun.

  • Are there risks involved?
    The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Recreation Program strives to conduct all activities in the safest manner possible. However, due to the inherent risk of accident or injury in any activity, it is the responsibility of each participant to have insurance, to be aware that there are assumed risks involved in participating, and that participation is entirely voluntary.
