Consisting of structured game play between other teams on campus, intramurals are a great way for University members to engage in physical activity while playing the sports they love.
The Department of Campus Recreation offers a variety of intramural sports for undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff to maintain their competitive edge, remain active, or simply meet new people. With gameplay consisting of Men’s, Women’s, Co-Ed and Open leagues/tournaments, there is a place for everyone in the Intramural Sports program.
Unlike many club sports teams, intramurals do not involve a great commitment, as games take place on campus and scheduled practices are not required.
Registration for intramural sports is absolutely free, making it accessible for everyone active within the university.
- Getting Started
In order to participate in Intramural Sports you must first create an account and register with IMLeagues; please use your Pitt Email Address when signing up. If you have already created your account and registered using IMLeagues, then you are ready to either create your own team, join a team, or join as a free agent by signing in with your Pitt Email Address and password at IMLeagues.
- Forming a Team
Intramural sports is largely team-based and the simplest way to get involved is to organize a team of your own, or join a team organized by your friends, school departments, residence halls, co-workers, fraternities, sororities, and more. Each sport requires a minimum amount of players for a team to be confirmed for league play so be sure to check the current sport rules page for this information.
- How to Register
Once you know you have a team ready for participation, you will first need to create an account at IMLeagues. Once you have done this or already have created your account, check to see when registration opens for your chosen sport. You will then visit your IMLeagues account, select your sport and league from the options available, and create your team. Players for your team will then be able to join your team; all players MUST join your team on IMLeagues to be eligible and placed on your team roster (this is also important for team approval in meeting the minimum requirement of players for a particular sport).
- Free Agents
If you do not have a team to play with, or do not have enough players to form a team, there is a Free Agent option available when signing up through IMLeagues. When joining as a free agent, you will be added to a list that is visible to current teams, but we also encourage you to be proactive in your attempts to join a team as a Captain’s information and email are viewable within IMLeagues. Please note we cannot personally place you on a team without a Captain’s consent.
- Team Rosters
All participants for your team must be registered and join your team on IMLeagues. In order to be eligible for a game, players can be added until the Join Teams Deadline. Players can only play for one team per sport during a season; players can play for two teams only in the event that one team is registered within a Coed League.
- Regular Season Schedules
Most intramural games are often scheduled for Monday – Thursday. Following registration, a team’s regular season schedules will be available online at the IMLeagues webpage and can be accessed from their team page.
There will be playoffs for most leagues to determine a season champion. The number of teams that qualify for the playoffs will be based upon the availability of facility space and the time in which the playoffs must be concluded from start to finish. Teams are notified as soon as the above situation is assessed and determined. All decisions to the number of teams advancing to the playoffs are final. Playoffs can be scheduled any day and time of the week.
Protests dealing with faulty interpretations of rules by game officials should be settled by the Intramural Student Supervisor, whenever possible, at the time they occur. The game should proceed to completion. On the field or court, decisions may be appealed. Protests that question an official’s judgment will not be allowed. MISCONDUCT TOWARD OR HARASSMENT OF AN OFFICIAL CAN RESULT IN SUSPENSION OR EXPULSION FROM INTRAMURAL PLAY. All eligibility protests must be made prior to the beginning of a contest. Once the game begins the results stand. All other protests will be handled by the Intramural Program Coordinator and Intramural Student Supervisor.
Intramural Sports are open to all students, faculty & staff that hold a valid Pitt ID.

Participation in Pitt Intramural Sports could result in physical injury to a participant. The University of Pittsburgh, the Department of Student Affairs and the Department of Campus Recreation assume no responsibility for injuries received during intramural participation.
- Alcohol and Drug Policy
The possession and use of alcohol or any other illegal drugs is prohibited at and during any intramural sports activity by participants or spectators; they will not be allowed on site. Any participant suspected to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be asked to leave the facility, and the team will risk forfeiting the game. Each team and its Captain will be responsible for assisting in the enforcement of this policy for its team members and spectators. Violators can be subject to removal from their team and the league, and, in addition, may also be removed from all sports for the semester. Violators can also be subject to disciplinary action in accordance with the University of Pittsburgh’s policy.
The Campus Recreation Department does not insure its participants. All students are encouraged to avail themselves of the relatively inexpensive program offered through the Student Health Service.

All persons planning to participate in the Intramural program are encouraged to undergo an annual physical examination. The Department of Campus Recreation reserves the right to require proof of such examinations prior to participating in selected activities.
