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.
- 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 administrative staff, if you are seeking reasonable accommodation and have a disability that might affect the safety of others.
- 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
- Individuals may play on the team that best matches their self-identification and expressed gender identity and not the sex indicated in official school records.
- Player eligibility is based on the gender identified on the official IMLeagues team roster.
Intramural Sports tab: Intramural Sports Eligibility
- Current fee-paying A&M-Commerce undergraduate and graduate students
- A&M-Commerce faculty and staff. You must have a Campus Recreation membership in order to participate in activities that take place at the MRC
- A&M-Commerce alumni
- Contract workers for the university (ie. SSC, Sodexo, construction companies, etc.)
- Students from other colleges or universities
- Faculty and staff that do not have a Campus Recreation membership (applies to sports taking place in the confines of the MRC)
- Spouses and/or life and domestic partners of students, faculty or staff
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).
- Signing up as a free agent does not guarantee a spot on a roster nor can you be placed on a roster without the captain’s approval.
Lion Rec Sports App
Download the official sports programs app, Lion Rec Sports. Powered by IMLeagues, the Lion Rec Sports app lets you sign up a team or yourself for intramural sports, join a club sports team, check your game schedule, and see where you land on the leaderboard, all from your phone.
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.
This club participates in competitions locally, regionally and nationally, but is primarily an outlet for students to take recreational fishing trips as a group. All skill levels are encouraged to join.

Club Sports: Start a Club Sport
Start a club Sport
All clubs must register with the Office of Student Organizations in order to become a Club Sport. Student Organizations must follow the process as set forth by Student Organizations (Student Organizations: Starting a New Organization).
Once a club has registered with Student Organizations, a meeting must be set up with Kelsey Cato, Coordinator of Sports Programs. The club must provide the following upon this meeting:
- Constitution: This document is the foundation of the club’s operations. It should clearly list the purpose, membership, organization structure (officers and advisors), election processes, rules and regulations and funding sources for the club.
- Roster: Student Organizations require a minimum of six members for each club. Club Sports that have a higher minimum number of participants required to play the sport will be required to meet the minimum needed to play the sport before becoming a club sport.
Approval and acceptance into the Club Sports Program happens on a semester-by-semester basis. Clubs must be established as a registered student organization and must have met all of the requirements for Starting a New Club Sport as listed above. Once approved, the club will become an active club sport for the following semester and will be eligible to start receiving funding.
After becoming an official club sport, clubs must follow the guidelines below to maintain their club sport status.Back to menu
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 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 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.
