Intramural Sports are non-varsity-level recreational sports organized within a particular institution. At CU, Intramurals involve a variety of league style sports such as Softball, Flag Football, Indoor Soccer, 5 on 5 Basketball, and Volleyball in which teams compete in competitive divisions for an entire season and then compete in Championship playoffs. Intramurals at CU also involves several one to two day events and tournaments throughout the year including disc golf, dodgeball, ultimate Frisbee, beach volleyball, muggle quidditch, and student vs faculty competitions, sometimes involving student organizations such as fraternities, sororities, and others.
Intramurals are usually played in the afternoons and into the evening hours from 5:30 pm till 10:00 pm, Monday through Thursday. On occasion, there may be a one day event or tournament that will start earlier in the day or take place on a Friday or Saturday.
Intramurals is one of the most popular student driven offerings at CU and enjoys very high participation rates with an average of 167 student participants, and up to 20 teams, in each of the league style team sports during the year. Students can form their own teams or can join a league as a free agent to be recruited by an existing team. Sometimes entire teams are created entirely of free agents.
League Champions receive Championship T-shirts of their own design for each team member, and bragging rights for the rest of the year and following year!
