Welcome to Intramural Sports!

Each year, more than 13,000 students participate in the intramural program at Texas A&M! This year, it is our goal to have more students participate in our program than any other in the country.  We want you and your friends to be a part of it!

#EverythingsBiggerInTexas

Rec Sports offers dozens of intramural activities each semester, and in a wide range of skill levels.  Maybe you’re a star athlete looking to relive the glory days. Possibly you’re looking to meet new people and make some friends. It could simply be you’re looking for a quick one-hour study break to relieve stress each week. Whatever your reason might be, intramural sports has something for you!

Registration, game schedules, and roster management are all completely online through the Texas A&M IMLeagues page.  To play Intramural Sports for the first time, please follow the instructions below:

Step 1 – Create an account on IMLeagues

  • Visit imleagues.com/tamu.
  • Click “Create Account” (green button at the top of the page).
  • Log in to the Texas A&M network using your NetID and password
  • Complete the required information for your account.

Step 2 – Purchase your Intramural Sports Unlimited Play Pass

  • Click on “Intramural Sports” or the A&M logo on IMLeagues (near the top left of the page).
  • Click on the icon in the middle of the page that says “Click here to purchase your Intramural Sports Unlimited Play Pass.”
  • Click “Buy PayPackage.”
  • Complete your purchase.

Step 3 – Create or Join a Team

To Create a Team:

  • Click your desired sport and league from the options displayed and “+Create team.”
  • Agree to sport waiver and fill in your team information as prompted. Submit your team.
  • From your team page, invite friends or accept invites from friends to join your team.

To Join a Team:

  • Accept a request from the captain to join his/her team through email or IMLeagues OR
  • Find the team and captain name on the division/league page and request to join.

We know it can be challenging to find enough players for a team! If you don’t have a team to join but still want to play, that simply means you’re a free agent.  There are a couple of options for finding a team to play with.

  • Visit imleagues.com/tamu and make sure you have created your account. Look for the sport titled “NEED A TEAM? SIGN UP HERE!” Many sports and leagues have already created teams to be solely comprised of free agent players. Find and click on the sport you wish to play.  Continue to follow the prompts at the top of each page before finally joining your new team!*

*Please note that requesting to join a team does not instantaneously place you on that team. We appreciate your patience as the Intramural Office continues to monitor these teams, and we will accept your request to join the team as time allows.

  • Again at imleagues.com/tamu, you can show as a “Free Agent” in as many divisions within a league as you’d like (use the player-sign up drop-down menu on the top right of every page on IMLeagues). You can request to join teams or post information about yourself so teams can request to add you to their team.

All Texas A&M students, faculty, staff, and spouses of each category who have purchased a Rec Sports membership for the semester are eligible to purchase an Intramural Sports Unlimited Play Pass. Those who qualify for a continuing student membership for the semester are also eligible to purchase. Anyone that does not have a valid Rec Sports membership is not eligible to purchase an Intramural Sports Unlimited Play Pass, and is thus not eligible to participate in Intramural Sports. Guest passes and Blinn College students do not qualify.  Most students are automatically eligible as long as they are enrolled in enough hours to have the appropriate fees charged to their account.

Rec Sports memberships may be purchased at member services at the Student Recreation Center.

Complete eligibility guidelines are outlined in our Policies and Procedures section under the Rules tab.

Intramural sports are typically played Sundays through Thursdays, and the time frame is usually 5:45 pm to midnight. Sunday play typically starts earlier in the afternoon for most sports.

Intramural Sports officials are available to work some special events. Please contact Nick Heiar at 979-862-4302 or nheiar@rec.tamu.edu for more information.

Rain-Out Information

Intramural games may occasionally be canceled due to inclement weather. If this happens, participants may find out the status of games via the Rain Out Information Number – (979)-845-2625 – and choosing option 1.

Intramural Sports Rules

Below is some important information pertaining to Intramural Sports policies and procedures. Participants should consult the full, detailed handbook for more thorough answers to questions.

All Texas A&M students, faculty, staff, and spouses of each category who have purchased a Rec Sports membership for the semester are eligible to purchase an Intramural Sports Unlimited Play Pass. Those who qualify for a continuing student membership for the semester are also eligible to purchase. Anyone that does not have a valid Rec Sports membership is not eligible to purchase an Intramural Sports Unlimited Play Pass, and is thus not eligible to participate in Intramural Sports. Guest passes and Blinn College students do not qualify.  Most students are automatically eligible as long as they are enrolled in enough hours to have the appropriate fees charged to their account.

Rec Sports memberships may be purchased at member services at the Student Recreation Center.

Complete eligibility guidelines are outlined in our Policies and Procedures section under the Rules tab.

All eligible participants are allowed to play on one single gender and one co-ed team per sport.  In leagues that offer an open league, players may join an open team as well. Please note that all specialty divisions (i.e. Corps of Cadets and fraternity) count as the single-gender team.

Yes! All intramural participants must show a form of photo ID prior to each and every game. The identification must be a government issued ID. A driver’s license or student ID card are the most used and accepted forms of ID.

Some sport rules specifically outlaw jewelry for the game; therefore, intramural sports has decided to not allow jewelry in any intramural contest. All players are required to remove jewelry prior to the game starting. This includes Aggie rings. Please note that recreational facilities are possible theft areas. Please secure your belongings in lockers or leave them at home. Intramural sports is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Intramural games may occasionally be canceled due to inclement weather. If this happens, participants may find out the status of games via the Rain Out Information Number – (979)-845-2625 – and choosing option 1.

Yes! For many sports, and assuming a spot is available, we will allow teams to reschedule their assigned game. Team captains are encouraged to act early if they cannot make a game. Reschedule spots are first come, first served. All reschedules must be completed by 4pm the day of the game. For Sunday contests, the reschedule must be completed by 2pm. Reschedules are not official until they are approved by the Intramural Office. NOTE: The time of your game is official in IMLEAGUES. Unless your schedule is changed online, the reschedule is not complete. Do not trust the word of the opposing team.

Teams are expected to show up to their assigned game times. If a team cannot make a game time, the intramural office can help you possibly reschedule your game. If a game cannot be rescheduled, teams have the choice of defaulting or forfeiting the game.

If your team doesn’t have enough players to play in your game, you can call or email the intramural office prior to 4:00 pm the day of your game. Doing this allows you to DEFAULT your game, meaning you will receive the loss, but you will not be charged a fee.

If you do not call the office and choose to not show up to your game, your team will be charged with a forfeit. This means you will receive a loss, a reduced sportsmanship rating (impacting playoff eligibility), and each player on your team that does NOT sign in will be charged a $5 forfeit fee.* All players being charged that forfeit fee will be suspended from all Intramural activity until they have completed that payment through IMLeagues, which will lift their suspension.

*Individual players that attend their team’s game should ALWAYS check-in, regardless of whether or not the rest of their team is going to make it to the game.  All players that check in to a game will not be suspended or charged the $5 forfeit fee.

Once a team advances to playoffs, it is not certain that you will play on the same day and time as your regular season games are scheduled. A team that plays on Mondays at 7:45 may be playing a team that plays on Thursdays at 9:45. Therefore, it’s impossible to have the games at the same time for every team. Many sports have “playoff bracket selection” nights, in which you are able to choose your spot in the bracket in a predetermined order based on the regular season standings. This allows teams to more intentionally choose their playoff game times. Please be on the lookout for an email with more information regarding this process.

Throughout the regular season of a sport, team captains may add and accept players on their team at any time. All players must be on the online roster prior to the game they want to play in. At 4:00 pm on the day playoffs begin, your team’s rosters are “frozen.” Anyone planning to participate on your team for any game after that time must be added to your roster in advance.

Work for Intramural Sports

Intramural Sports Officials start at $9.00/hour!

Like the idea of working in sports? Intramural Sports hires over 200 students each year! Our department hires for positions as referees and scorekeepers. We also offer many opportunities to advance in our program through promotions and merit raises. Officials are needed for almost all intramural team sports including flag football, volleyball, soccer, basketball, softball, and cricket. Paid training sessions are held in the weeks prior to the beginning of each respective season.

Officials Orientation Meetings

Intramural sports does not take applications. Please do not fill out the Rec Sports job application! If you are interested in being an intramural official, you MUST attend the orientation meeting for the sport you are interested in officiating. You may attend as many orientation sessions as you wish, and some officials do get hired for more than one sport. All orientations are drop-in, and feel free to bring your friends!

  • Intramural officials are the entry-level position available in Intramural Sports. All intramural officials must be a student (Blinn College students are eligible to work).
  • Officials work approximately 6-12 hours a week; however, some work more or less. Your schedule depends on your availability, and Intramural Sports understands that you are a student FIRST!
  • Intramural sports officials may be scheduled Sundays through Thursdays from 5:30 pm to midnight. Sometimes Sunday starts as early at 3:30 pm and is our most demanding day for staff and requires some availability. While there are no intramural events scheduled for Fridays and Saturdays, intramural officials can also earn extra cash by being available for special events on those days.
  • Being an intramural official is seasonal and officials are only required while games are being played. Intramural sports are not played over semester breaks or when school is not in session.
  • Hourly wage rate begins at $9.00/hour and officials are eligible for merit increases in pay after 6 months from initial hire and every semester afterwards.
  • New intramural officials are not required to know the rules of the sport as those are taught during the training session; however, a basic understanding of the sport is preferred and will assist in getting hired.
  • Once hired, intramural officials are required to attend 8-10 hours of training that occur over two weeks before the season starts. This training is paid and must be attended in order to continue working.
  • Key qualities of desired staff include a willingness to learn, positive attitude, hustle, ability to accept feedback, and a willingness to improve through the season.

Intramural Sports officials are available to work some special events. Please contact Nick Heiar at (979) 862-4302 or nheiar@rec.tamu.edu for more information.
