We offer about 40 different sports in a given academic year including racquetball, table tennis, basketball, spikeball, cricket, flag football, soccer and volleyball.

Intramural Sports: Inclusive Sports Environment

Sports are designed to be enjoyed by everyone regardless of their race, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, age, or physical abilities.

Disability

  • Individuals with disabilities may seek reasonable modifications, aids or services to ensure an equal opportunity for them to participate in Intramural Sports unless the modification would fundamentally alter the sport or program.
  • Please notify the Sport Programs adminstrative staff, if you are seeking reasonable accommodation and have a disability that might affect the safety of others.

Gender Identity

  • Participation is based on one’s self-identified gender, which is done in good faith, and is consistent with a player’s expressed gender identity.
  • An individual’s gender identity is applied when there are gender-specific rules or player ratio requirements for co-rec divisions

Intramural Sports tab: Don't Have a Team

We know it can be challenging to find enough players for a team! If you don’t have a team to join but still want to play, that simply means you’re a free agent. Here are a couple of options for finding a team to play with.

  • Visit imleagues.com/tamuc and make sure you have created your account.
  • Look for the sport titled “NEED A TEAM? SIGN UP HERE!” Many sports and leagues have already created teams to be solely comprised of free-agent players.
  • Find and click on the sport you wish to play. Continue to follow the prompts at the top of each page before finally joining your new team!
  • You can request to join teams or post information about yourself so teams can request to add you to their team.
  • Please note that requesting to join a team does not instantaneously place you on that team. It is a good practice to reach out to the captain before showing up to a game.
  • You can show as a “Free Agent” in as many divisions within a league as you’d like (use the player-sign up drop-down menu on the top right of every page on IMLeagues).

Club Sports

Club Sports

The Club Sports program is designed for any student who has a love of sports and recreation. Club Sport teams are student-based and student-led organizations that operate under the supervision of Campus Recreation and are approved by the Office of Student Organizations. Clubs are not varsity teams and athletic scholarships are not offered.

Some Club Sports have separate men’s and women’s teams, while others are co-ed.

While the Club Sport staff assists clubs in their operations, the emphasis is on student leadership and development. Students are responsible for all aspects of operating and managing a successful organization.

How do club sports differ from intramural sport programs?

Intramural Sports provide an opportunity for students, faculty, staff, and other members of the University community to participate in team and individual sports against other TAMUC teams or opponents. The purpose of Intramural Sports is to provide exercise, recreation, and fun to all levels of participants. The biggest differences are that Club Sports travel to other colleges and universities to compete and schedule their own practices, games, and tournaments.

How do club sports differ from varsity sport programs?

Club Sports are not scholarship-based. Club officers are responsible for their own administration and for many of their own expenses. Unlike varsity sports, students manage their respective clubs in all aspects: recruitment, fundraising, scheduling, purchasing, etc.

Classifications of Club Sports Teams

Recreational

Recreational clubs hold practices, meetings, and may compete at a local, regional, or national level. Recreational clubs are great for uniting students who share a common interest in a certain sport. Recreational clubs are NOT required to charge dues, but may if needed, and will still have all privileges of a recognized student organization such as the ability to reserve facility space and host practice.

Competitive

Competitive clubs practice and compete on a regular basis against opposing university teams. Club members of a competitive club team are skilled players who seek to compete at a high level of competition. Tournaments allow members of a club to travel, meet students from other schools, and be involved in sports competitions. Competitive clubs are required to charge dues, in order to participate on a competitive level.
