On April 17, 1902, Washington State College held a track meet for the male students of the four academic classes, thus representing the very first intramural activity. Since then, the program has grown to offer over 75 activities during the year with over 6,000 participants. Playing IM Sports at WSU has truly become an essential part of being a Coug. Join the tradition and come out to get a little exercise, meet new people, and most importantly - have fun!
What are IM Sports?
WSU Intramural Sports provide an environment where students have the opportunity to gather with others and participate in various sport and leisure activities, regardless of skill level. The IM Sports program is comprised of traditional team and individual sports with leagues and playoffs, as well as weekend tournament activities. See our current offerings to find out which sport you’d like to play.
Choosing the Right League
For many sports there are league divisions for Men, Women, and Coed. Likewise, there are four Intramural levels. Each league has a different focus so that you can find the league that best suits you. Below are the league descriptions:
Recreational (New to the Sport): The emphasis is on playing. "HAVING FUN"
Competitive (Moderately Skilled): You are invested in determining a champion. "PLAYING HARD"
Premier (Highly Skilled): The most intense division. "WINNING"
Elite (Best of the Best): For those that want to compete at the top level. "WINNING BIG"
- Elite Leagues are only offered for certain sports and provide multiple games a week, statistics, and league prizes for the champions. The cost associated with the Elite leagues is higher than other leagues, however, teams receive more league games.
We strongly encourage all who play Intramural Sports to participate in the appropriate level of play for their skill set.
