Intramural Sports

What is Intramural Sports? Intramural Sports encompasses recreational sport leagues and tournaments. You have the opportunity to compose your own teams of friends, classmates, employees, etc. If you're unable to form a team, sign up on your own as Free Agent and we will put you on a team comprised of other Free Agents. If you are interested in joining an intramural league, please check out our registration instructions.

Maximum registration numbers are set and it's recommended that you register early as some leagues and events fill up before the deadline. Check out some photos of our intramural leagues and events

Who can play?

  • MRU students (regardless of age)
  • MRU employees (18+ years)
  • MRU alumni (18+ years)
  • Recreation Centre members (18+ years)
  • General public (18+ years)

Only MRU students and Recreation members can register for Free Agent spots. Due to limited facility availability, some leagues may be restricted to Recreation members (continuous or annual). Memberships must remain current for the entire duration of the activity.]


We offer the following Intramural leagues :
Don’t really know how to “sport” or just looking to have fun? This level is where you belong! Games are played with the emphasis on having fun while being active with friends.
This level is best suited for players who have experience playing intramural sports and/or play sports casually on a regular basis. Games are played with the emphasis on having fun while being active with friends. You win some, you lose some, but you always live to play another day!
You won’t be drafted by any pro sports teams by playing at this level, but it is a great way to continue your love of sport and stay active after you’ve retired from your high school or post-secondary teams. Being active while having fun is the ultimate goal.
Free Agent
Free Agents are for those students and Rec members who haven't yet been signed to a team at Recreation. Intramurals creates a team comprised of Free Agents to showcase their athletic talents in a comfortable environment with others who are also looking to make friends and stay active.

Follow the instructions available on the Registration Instructions page.

Defaults occur if a team fails to appear or is not ready to play ten minutes after the scheduled start time.

A sportsmanship rating of 0 will be given to the defaulting team and the team that shows up will be given the highest sportsmanship rating of 4. If a team defaults, they are required to pay a $50 default bond to Recreation (U130) within 48 hours of their defaulted game and will lose 3 points in the standings. If a team does not pay the bond, they will be removed from the league. The default bond will be returned to the team once the season has ended provided they have not defaulted a second time.
