What is Intramural Sports? Intramural Sports is a student-led organized recreational sport league program which plays on average once per week. Participants can join as a team or register as a Free Agent and be put on a team of other Free Agents with similar skill level and availability. All games are officiated by first aid certified referees. When you play Intramural Sports, you’ll get the chance to try something new, make friends and play in a safe and fun environment!

The goal of MRU Intramurals is to reduce the number of defaults and forfeits whenever possible. The Intramural team understands that things arise last-minute and substitutions may be requested to avoid defaults.
All teams will be allowed one substitution per semester, but only to reach the minimum number of players needed for the game. In these situations, Team Captains must inform SPCs of the substitution requests 48 hours in advance or substitutions will be denied. Teams will not be charged a substitution fee.
