How to Participate in an Intramural SportHow to Participate in an Intramural Sport
A Step-By-Step Guide

1. Create an account through

All participants need to be registered with If you are creating the team, you must make an account with IMLeagues and then create the team for the league or activity you want to join. For everyone else on your team, please direct them to your team page and ask them to sign up and request be added to the team. We track your participation through IMLeagues. If your teammate does not appear on the roster in IMLeagues, they will not be eligible for playoffs. If you need assistance with adding a teammate, contact the Intramural Office. Once you create a team we will contact you to remind you about the deposit, representatives meeting, and update you when the schedule is available. Instructions on how to create an account are available here.

2. Pay your deposit bond

Deposit bonds are used to ensure that teams will not forfeit during the intramural activity’s season. For leagues, the bonds will be two equal payments. For tournaments, it is one payment per team. These bonds may be cash, or check (made to Ithaca College), and must be turned in at the representatives meeting on the intramural calendar. If your team forfeits, you lose one of your bonds. The second forfeit will drop you from the league, and you lose the second bond. Forfeiting during playoffs automatically drops you from the league. If you don’t forfeit, the money is returned to you at the end of the playoffs. If you paid in cash, and do not obtain your bond one week after playoffs end, it will be deposited and lost. Checks will be shredded unless you state you wish to collect them.  

3. Come to the representatives meeting

At least one member from each team must be at this meeting. The meeting is typically 20 minutes long while we cover all the rules for the activity, when and where the activity will take place, and other intramural policies. We will also go over for anyone who has questions. If you are not represented at this meeting and do not bring your deposit, your team will not participate in this activity.

4. Game on!

You are now eligible to participate and will have your game schedule. You are obligated to make all of your games or the forfeit rules will apply. However, if you know ahead of time that your team cannot make a game, you may default by calling the Intramural Office at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled game. For Saturday, Sunday, or Monday games, you must notify the Hill Center 103 by 5p.m. on Friday. All teams may default once per semester. This will count as a loss in the team's overall record, but no penalties will apply. If a team does not call or does not have enough players for a scheduled game, it is a forfeit. 

5. Collect cash bonds and sign up for the next activity

If you paid cash bonds, the Intramural Office will email you about when you can pick up the money and checks will be shredded unless otherwise specified. To sign up for your next intramural league or tournament, start the process over.
