IM Leagues

Texas A&M Intramural Sports team schedules, registration and results are handled by a third party software called IMLeagues.com.

All intramural participants must be members of Rec Sports and meet the eligibility requirements for intramural sports. In order to adhere to this policy, all participants must log in through the RecConnect website in order to verify eligibility for intramural sports. You must have your Net ID and password in order to log into the site.

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.

Who is eligible to play Intramural Sports?

Any Texas A&M student, faculty, staff, or spouse of one of those three categories are eligible to play intramural sports as long as they have paid the Rec Sports fee for that semester. Most students are automatically eligible as long as they are enrolled in enough hours to have fees automatically charged to their account. No one outside of the above categories is eligible for Texas A&M intramural participation. Guest passes and Blinn College students do not qualify to play in our program.

How many teams can I play on?

All eligible participants are allowed to play on one single gender and one co-ed team per sport. Please note that all specialty divisions (i.e. Corps of Cadets and fraternity) count as the single-gender team.

Do I need an ID to play?

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.

Can I wear jewelry when I play?

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.

Will games be played tonight because of weather?

Intramural games may occasionally be canceled due to inclement weather. If this happens, participants may find out the status of games via three methods:

All three are updated when weather is in the area. Typically, a decision about the status of games for the evening is made at 3:00pm.

Can we reschedule a game?

Yes! If 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 3pm the day of the game. For Sunday contests, the reschedule must be completed by 3pm Friday! 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.

We can’t reschedule our game; what happens?

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 you call the intramural office prior to 3:00pm the day of your game, we will allow 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 and could possibly be charged a fine for forfeiting the game.

How are playoff times decided?

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. All teams are entered into one bracket for the playoffs, so 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.

When do rosters freeze?

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 3:00pm on the day playoffs begin for the sport your team is playing is when rosters will be frozen. Anyone planning to participate on your team for any game after that time must be on your roster.

Officiating

Intramural Sports officials make $9.00/hour!

Texas A&M Intramural Sports hires over 200 students each year to fill positions as referees and umpires for our team sports.
