IM Sports 101

Welcome to Intramural Sports at Michigan State! IM Sports are recreational activities tailored specifically to the interests of students at MSU, where they can compete against other MSU students. Slightly different than club sports, and vastly different than varsity sports, IM Sports provides wide range of opportunities for students to try out new things in a friendly and engaging environment without a lot of time commitment. Each team that successfully completes their team registration by creating their team on the IMLeagues website and paying their team entry fee before the league reaches capacity or the registration deadline passes (whichever comes first), will be entered into regular season play. During the registration process, teams are given the opportunity to select time preferences, which allows them to block out a specific number of time slots that their team is unavailable to play in. From there, regular season intramural games are scheduled and played on campus once per week, Sunday-Thursday, typically 5p-12midnight. Following the regular season, all teams (unless they are excluded for game attendance or behavioral issues) are entered into the single elimination playoffs.
