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.  



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