We have revisited our Intramurals Participation Structure policies in an effort to improve the inclusivity of our programs. There are different team structures that depend on the gender expression and identity compositions of a team. We have updated the names and descriptions of these different structures to better describe the competition environments in each. For more information on gender identity and gender expression please visit our Inclusive Recreation: Gender Identity and Expression page.

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.

Drop-In Programs

Most facilities under UBC Recreation have drop-in opportunities to play various sports associated with that venue including ice hockey, swimming, basketball, volleyball, and futsal. There are also opportunities to try less traditional sports such as Wheelchair Basketball and Cricket. Check out the Drop-In Schedule

Staff and Faculty Volleyball League

Each Wednesday at 12:00pm at the Student Recreation Centre UBC Staff and Faculty come come drop in and play volleyball for free.  To sign up, please check out the Staff and Faculty Volleyball League sign up. All skill levels are present and welcome!
