What We Do

With over a dozen departments and 100 student staff, there are many opportunities for staff to gain experience in diverse areas of programming. The Intramural staff program consists of three involvement areas – Leagues, Events, and Media. Within these areas, there are multiple teams of student staff made up of Assistant Directors (ADs) led by one Director. These teams work to create a positive participant and student experience across campus.

From organizing tournaments, races, and leagues, to engaging students through digital content and storytelling, there is something for everyone! Keep reading below to find out more details:

 

INTRAMURAL LEAGUES

The League’s team coordinates sports games for thousands of participants on just about every field, rink, and court across campus every week, through 8 different sports. Leagues staff work closely with participants during on-site supervisory shifts, and take on key administrative roles within their team, gaining experience in scheduling, participant experience, customer service, program management, and more. 

"Intramurals is everything you'd ever want out of your university experience: a wholesome family and people that support you during tough times and raise you higher after your wins. It's a community that makes you want to be the best version of yourself and you're guaranteed to have some truly amazing experiences along the way!"

- Zeus, Leagues Student Staff 2017-2020

 

 

 

 

INTRAMURAL EVENTS

Building on a reputation for excellence that is many decades in the making, the Events team runs some of UBC's most iconic events. From Day of the LongBoat to Storm the Wall, Intramurals student staff drive the development, planning, and delivery of a diverse portfolio of exciting events. Staff are challenged and empowered in this professional event planning environment and will gain skills in large-scale event management, event production & atmosphere, logistics efficiency, race management, and more. 

“The UBC Intramurals student volunteer program has been the most impactful thing that has ever happened to me. I made some my closest friends through the program. I learned what sort of person I wanted to be and the full-time staff pushed me to accomplish things I never thought I could and made some of the most amazing memories I have ever lived through.”

- Timme, Events Student Staff 2018-2021

 

 

INTRAMURAL MEDIA

Media is made up of 2 teams who are responsible for creating and maintaining the Intramural brand story - promoting participation, engagement, and recognition in all Intramural programs, using a variety of innovative strategies. These staff help to define the role of Intramurals within the UBC community. Media is the most unique, and technically elevated team in the Intramural program. From videography, photography, creative content & story-telling, to internal community building through the lens, Media sees and does it all. 

These teams are focused on driving awareness and registration for all Intramural programming through the creation of innovative content for a variety of professional digital channels. These staff will gain experience in digital strategy, creative content production, video editing, business accounts, and more.

"The experience working in the marketing of the Intramurals Leagues and Events like LongBoat and TriDu helped me gain insights into working professionally in digital marketing and helped me apply the skills and knowledge I had from class and previous work. We were given so much trust and control with our projects and this really helped my team and I flourish. It was a great opportunity to develop and further my marketing skills while creating meaningful lifelong connections and friendships."

- Kelly, Digital Content & Program Development Student Staff, 2018-2021

This team produces high-quality visual imagery for both Intramural participants and staff. Team members are encouraged to bring their own creative ideas into the team's projects. These staff will gain experience in story-boarding & content management, photo & video composition, coverage of large-scale sport events & programs, editing efficiency, and more.

"Being part of the Media team means getting to take photos at major UBC events such as Storm of Wall and Day of the Longboat but there’s a lot more beyond that. The media team gets to capture the behind the scenes for the program and you bond really closely with your other media team members."
