The section below answers common, general questions pertaining to intramural sports here art the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. This is not meant to be an extensive list of questions and answers.
Please contact Competitive Sports Coordinator Garrett Larson at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions not answered below.
How do I register an intramural team?
All registrations can be completed online at imleagues.com/uwec. The earlier you register, the better chance you have to guarantee your team a spot in your desired league.
Can I play if I don't have a team?
The Intramural Sports Program requires full teams for most league play. Any participant wishing to participate, but is unable to create a team of their own, should follow these steps to become a Free Agent:
- Sign up on the Free Agent list in their desired activity on IMLeagues to become eligible to be picked up by another team within that league. Please include your contact information and what days you are available to play
- If there are enough “Free Agents” within a given league, the Intramural Sports Coordinator will attempt to create a free agents team.
- Team captains can select “Free Agents Wanted” if they are in need of more participants.
- Joining as a Free Agent does not guarantee that you will be placed on a team. It is in your best interest to reach out to team captains throughout the registration period.
How many players do I need for a team?
Team numbers vary dependent upon the sport you are playing. The number of players can be found I the rules document for each sport. There will be a minimum number of players required to start a game as well as a maximum amount allowed on a roster.
Where can I find Intramural rules?
Rules for each sport can be found here. They can also be found at imleagues.com/uwec in the “Rules & Handbooks” Section.
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. Meetings will be held for select sports and will be held the Sunday prior to the start of league play.

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.
