IM Leagues

Intramural sports registration is managed using an online platform called IMLeagues.  This is where participants will register for teams, receive game schedules, view individual sport rules, and track their teams’ scores throughout the year.  Create an account by going to IMLeagues.com/ohiou and be sure to use your OHIO email so your account can be approved as soon as possible, and you can be on your way to becoming an intramural sports champion!

Intramural Sports Pass

Registration for all intramural sports season-long leagues requires purchase of an intramural sports pass.  Purchase of the pass enables participants to register for an unlimited amount of teams in any sport offered throughout the duration of the pass.  Purchase of the pass also enables participants to waive fees for any one-day or one-weekend events during the season(s) the pass is valid for.  Pass options and pricing are as follows:


  • Season Pass (Good for Fall 1, Fall 2, Spring 1, OR Spring 2 leagues):
    • Students $15; Faculty/Staff $
  • Semester Pass (Good for Fall 1 and Fall 2, or Spring 1 and Spring 2 leagues):
    • Students $20; Faculty/Staff $
  • Annual Pass (Good for all sports throughout the academic year):
    • Students $30, Faculty/Staff $

Purchase your IM Pass by logging into IMLeagues.com/ohiou and scroll down to the league labeled “Purchase Your IM Pass Here.”  Select which pass you want to register for (season, semester, or annual) and follow the payment instructions as directed.  Passes can be upgraded at any point during the year (e.g. a season pass can be upgraded to a semester or annual pass, and a semester pass can be upgraded to an annual pass) by paying the difference in value (for example, a student can upgrade from season to annual by paying the $15 difference). 

One-day and one-weekend events are free to those with an active IM Pass and require a one-time $5 fee for those without an IM Pass, payable at registration on IMLeagues.

League Sports and Structure

League Types

Each weekly league has varying options for participants to choose from.  Participants may choose to play in Men’s, Women’s, Coed, or Open leagues, as well as Competitive and Recreational versions of each (for example, “Men’s – Competitive” or “Men’s – Recreational”).  Gender eligibility for each participant is based on participants’ gender identity selected on their IMLeagues profile.


Recreational vs. Competitive

Recreational leagues are for teams who just want to play the sport in a more relaxed environment.  Teams will be scheduled for five games with no playoff or championship at the end of the season.  Competitive leagues have a three-game regular season followed by a single-elimination playoff to determine a league champion.  Teams in both recreational and competitive leagues must show up to games and display consistently good sportsmanship to maintain eligibility for competition.


Men’s leagues are open to teams consisting of participants who identify as male or gender non-conforming.


Women’s leagues are open to teams consisting of participants who identify as female or gender non-conforming.


Coed leagues have certain gender ratios to be represented on the court or field at a time, and may have adjusted rules based on gender to encourage shared participation.


Open leagues have no gender or gender ratio requirements or altered rules.

Reinstatement Information for Each League

With all events being tournaments with brackets, individuals or duos who do not show up for their games will either be eliminated (in single-elimination tournaments) or moved to the losing side of the bracket (in double-elimination tournaments). There will not be a reinstatement process for the fall semester.  

FAQs about reinstatement policies [PDF]


All one-day and week-long offerings will consist of bracket play. Each sport will differ between single or double elimination.
