Have Questions?

At UBC Recreation we aspire to include everyone in our programs and facilities. But you may have questions or concerns about if this event is right for you. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact our event team at im.events6@ubc.ca. or call 604-822-9052.

When you are registering a team for UBC Recreation Intramurals Leagues or Events, there are a number of different participation options for your team based on the composition of your team in terms of skill level, gender identity and expression, and your campus community affiliations. If you are unsure of what to register for, follow these two steps prior to registering your team

Competitive vs. Just For Fun

The first decision that you’ll have to make is whether your team wants to be a competitive team, recreational team or a just for fun team.

Competitive Teams

Competitive teams are eligible for advancements, finals, and ultimately the winning of a championship shirt! In Intramural Leagues, there are also multiple tiers within each team structure which are outlined below in the Leagues Tier Explanation step.

If your team wants to compete as a competitive team, continue down this page to decide on the different team structure options for you to compete in.

Recreational Teams

Recreational teams are similar in all aspects to Competitive teams, just at a lower intensity and skill level.  Teams in this category still compete for championships in playoffs, and all games are officiated.

Just For Fun Teams

If you’re here to try something new, or you just want to have fun outside of a competitive atmosphere, the Just For Fun category could be right for you! Please note that these teams do not qualify for advancements or championships, and in leagues they are not officiated.

If your team wants to participate as a Just For Fun Team then you can skip over the Team Structure and Tier Explanations, and jump to UBC Community Affiliations. In the Just For Fun category, team gender requirements are not applicable.

Competitive/Recreational Team Categories

UBC strives to build a respectful and welcoming environment for all participants to enhance well-being, participation and a sense of community on campus through opportunities in Athletics and Recreation. We, acknowledge gender identity and gender expression as a spectrum. If you have further questions about our competitive team categories, please visit our Building a Respectful and Welcoming Environment in Recreation page.

If your team wants to compete on a competitive team you have three different team categories to choose from: Open; Women’s, Two-Spirit, Trans, & Gender Non-Conforming; and CoRec. We encourage individuals to self-select where they feel they belong within the participation structure. UBC Recreation welcomes all our participants and we want to encourage participation for all.

Open Category

Men, Women, Two-Spirit, Trans, Gender Non-Conforming
This category welcomes all individuals to participate regardless of gender.

Women’s (W2STGN) Category

Women, Two-Spirit, Trans, Gender Non-Conforming
This category welcomes participation by those who self-identify as women, two-spirit, trans and gender non-conforming.

Mixed (CoRec) Category

Men, Women, Two-Spirit, Trans, Gender Non-Conforming
This category welcomes all individuals to participate regardless of gender; however, teams must adhere to a maximum number of self-identified men. Please refer to specific programs under the “Event Overview” or “League Overview” tab for additional information.

Once you have selected your team category

If you are registering for an Intramural League, move on to Leagues Tier Explanations to choose the Tier that best suits your team’s skill level in the respective sport.
If you are registering for an Intramural Event, please skip Leagues Tier Explanations and jump to UBC Community Affiliations to decide if your team will compete for a specific UBC Community or in the Campus Wide Division.

UBC Community Affiliations

Regardless of whether you’re competing in a competitive or just for fun team you have the ability to compete as a Campus Wide team or a Divisional team and represent your affiliated UBC Community Unit.

Divisional Teams

What is a Divisional Team?

If your team is made up of individuals from a single UBC Community Unit – faculty or residence – you qualify to compete as a Divisional team. For a list of all Divisions and Units, visit the Unit Rankings by Division page.

For Divisional Teams, each team is allowed one “import”, an individual on your roster who is not from your declared unit.

Why compete as a Divisional Team?

Throughout the year we keep track of the participation and performance of teams that qualify in Divisional Units. Typically, teams are comprised of members entirely from a single faculty, department, or residence. At the end of the year at the Hall of Fame event, awards are handed out for each Division based on their unit’s participation.

In addition, Divisional competitive teams compete separately from Campus Wide teams in Day of the LongBoat and Storm The Wall, and in all Intramural Leagues. There are entirely separate championship awards for Divisional teams. For more information, visit the Earl Awards and Unit Points page.

Campus Wide Teams

The Campus Wide division does not have any restrictions on units.

Please register online or at the Student Recreation Centre.

How do I find or create a team?

The most traditional way to find a team for all Intramural Leagues, Tournaments, Races, and Events is to talk to people in your classes, faculties, clubs, residences, and among your friends to find people who are also interested in participating in one of our dozens of programs.

Once you’ve got at least the minimum # of players of players to sign up, you can register online at the Intramurals Online Registration Page , or in person at the Operations Desk of the Student Recreation Centre

Please be aware of the registration deadlines for the individual programs, and note that many of our programs do fill up, so it is better to register before the registration deadline.

What if I still can’t find a team?

1. Free Agent Facebook Group

UBC Recreation Intramurals hosts a Facebook Group where players who are looking for a team, and teams that are looking for more players can be connected.  Please use the program specific threads for the League or Event(s) you are interested in participating in. For a more detailed listing of possible play times for all League Sports, please check out the Intramural Leagues Days of Play Schedule

2. Free Agent Meetings

Your second option is to attend the Free Agent Meeting. At this meeting, we will try and match you up with other like-minded people and hopefully get you into position to register a team. Here are the currently scheduled Free Agent Meetings:

  • Free Agent Meeting for Winter Leagues – Thursday, Jan 9, 2020 – 5:00pm – Student Recreation Centre

I’ve never played before, or I haven’t played in a long time. What can I do?

This year, we’ve added a Learn to Play night for each league.  During this free, hour-long session, you will be taught the basic skills and rules of the sport or activity you are interested in so that you are confident going into the Intramural Season.  Learn to Play night is Wednesday, September 11th for all League sports.  Specific time and location can be found on each League Page under Important Dates.

I’m looking for something a little more casual

UBC Intramurals offers a lot of casual or informal programs for those who are looking to play their favourite sports, but without a long commitment or a competition structure to follow.

What is Floorball?

Traditionally, it’s a 5-on-5 game, but we’ll be taking our own spin on it and making it a 3-on-3 tournament. That means you’ll need yourself and AT LEAST 3 friends (3 players and a goalie!), but it’s a fast-paced game and you’ll want to recruit some extra friends for substitutes. We recommend having around 7 players, so you all get to play! Make a team roster with your floor, with your faculty buddies, with your Intramurals team, or with some friends. Or, hey, you could always shoot your shot (see what we did there?) and ask that cutie in your advanced Plant Sciences class.


So, what can you expect from Floorball Championship?

  • Think indoor ball hockey played using slightly shorter sticks.
  • The ball is basically a whiffle ball.
  • There’s no physical contact between players.
  • No touching the ball with hands (except the goalie).


It’s easy to pick up, and you’ll even get a 15 minute learn-to-play before the tournament! Post-tutorial, you’re off to the races with 3 games round-robin style, which are about 15 minutes each. That’s when it gets real… there’s playoffs and finals at the end of your time slot, and you know what that means. It’s champ shirt time, and you know you’ve always wanted one/need another one for your collection.


Floorball Championship is going down on Friday, October 18th with your choice of time slot: 5-7pm, 7-9pm, or 9-11pm. We’ll see you there, wearing athletic clothes and shoes, with your student ID in hand. No need for any equipment, we have you covered. Bring your team spirit, and get ready for an epic competition… and the possibility of a 2019 champ shirt?
