Become an Intramurals Champion in 6 Easy Steps

So you want to be an intramural champion? Good.

Intramural Leagues are a great way to meet new people, keep in touch with your friends each week, and connect with your different campus communities! There are many leagues, and different categories and tiers within leagues so you can pick what environment suits you best!

Let’s get started!


First things first: you have to pick which sport(s) you want to play! UBC REC offers 9 different intramural leagues to participate in throughout the school year:

Volleyball, 7V7 Soccer, 4V4 Soccer Basketball, Flag Football, Futsal, Ultimate, Ice Hockey, Dodgeball and Inner Tube Water Polo.

Will you walk this path alone or will you be joined by some trustworthy companions?

The second question you have to ask yourself is whether you want to enter an intramural league by yourself or with a few other friends.

Here’s what to do based on different scenarios:

  • “It’s just me right now but I want to build a championship contending team”  
    • Great! Just keep going down our step-by-step list.
  • “I want to join an existing team full of superstars”
    • Awesome! Advance to step 4 and find your dream team!
  • “I got a few friends but not enough to make a full team” 
    • Not a problem we got some great tips for you to find teammates. Go to the next step.
  • “Our group chat is already going off”
    • Sounds like you’re ready to register! Advance to step 6.

Playing team sports means you’ll need teammates! (duh)

Generally, people have a better experience if there are a few people on their team they already know. Nothing beats asking around to your current friends and classmates! Each league lists the minimum number of players you need on the league webpage.

Pro Tip: You can add players to your roster until November! Meaning you can register your team now and add friends to your team later.

Still need a few extra players?

Ask around within your communities for anyone who is looking for a team, or if they know of any existing teams that you and your friends can join! (This is where you get to be the GM of your own franchise!)

  • Living in residence? Talk to your Residence Advisor or knock on your neighbour’s door!
  • Affiliated with Collegia? Ask an Advisor or that guy reading on the couch!
  • Reach out to your Faculty’s Undergrad Society or your favourite club!

If you’re looking to add a few extra players or looking to join a team, free agency is where it’s at!

Use one of the resources available below:

  • Free Agent Facebook Group: facebook.com/groups/im.free.agents/
  • Free Agent Meetings: These meetings are formatted to bring together people who are looking for teams
    • Tuesday Sep 10 at 5PM in Totem Park Commonsblock, Place Vanier Commonsblock, and Orchard Commons Commonsblock
    • Thursday Sep 12 at 5PM in the Student Recreation Centre Gyms
  • Go to drop-in and find people who share your love for the sports!

By now you should have either assembled or joined your dream team, which means you are ready to visit our website online to register!

May luck be on your side in your quest of becoming an intramural champion!
