Frequently Asked Questions

What are Intramural Sports?

ECU boasts one of the finest sports officials development systems among university intramural sports programs in the nation.
 
How do I get involved?
Intramural teams are created through common bonds or associations within the East Carolina University community such as friends, residence halls and campus organizations or groups.  The intramural sports office also keeps a list of free agents for each sport and will assist in getting these players on a team.

The intramural sports program also employs students to officiate and supervise all games in each activity. Clinics and workshops are used to teach, train and guide interested individuals to enter the exciting world of sports officiating. Officials are used for flag football, volleyball, soccer, softball, and basketball. For further information please contact the intramural sports office or visit Employment on the IM website.
 
How do I sign up?
Teams will be able to register after attending the team registration meeting for a team sport. Interested individuals who would like to sign up a team by becoming a captain or those who are interested in signing up in the individual/dual events can obtain all of the pertinent information on the Registration tab or by clicking here.
 
How do I find out about upcoming activities?
Information can be found on the Calendar of Activities page in addition to various publications within the department.  Rules and information packets for activities are available in the intramural sports office and on the web.
 
What are the levels of competition?
Leagues will be offered if sufficient interest exists in men's independent, women's independent, fraternity, sorority, co-rec, faculty/staff/graduate student, and residence halls. In an attempt to equalize competition,  during playoff competition various levels of skill have been established.

Gold Leagues are designed for those teams or individuals which are somewhat advanced in sport skills and strategies and/or are motivated to play in a highly competitive atmosphere.

Purple Leagues are designed for those teams or individuals who desire to play recreationally and have some experience and skill in organized sports.
 
What if I don't have a team to play on or I need players to complete my team?
An intramural free agent is an ECU student, faculty or staff who wishes to participate in an intramural sponsored team activity and is not currently a member of a team. Teams may add players to their roster throughout the regular season, provided that those players have not played for another team in the same sport and division (coed, men's, women's) through the end of the regular season.
