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.

All of our league sports now offer Open Leagues. Open Leagues have no gender restrictions/requirements and will not have rule modifications. Players can now participate in Open Leagues and the other league offerings for each sport. 

We also offer Fraternity and Sorority leagues! These leagues will only be offered for selected, non-elite, intramural leagues. Representatives of the sorority or fraternity can register a team using their fraternity or sorority name and then add any/all players from their organization to the team that want to play. Players must be on the official roster registered with the Center for Fraternity & Sorority Life in order to play in Fraternity or Sorority Leagues. 

Choosing the Right League

For many sports there are league divisions for Men, Women, Coed, Open, Fraternity, and Sorority. All leagues will start without divisions, but will be scheduled progressively as the season goes on and then split into "Competitive" and "Recreational" divisions for playoffs. This means that there will be more opportunities for teams to play against other teams of a similar caliber as the season goes on.

Additionally, we now offer "Elite" versions of many or our most popular league sports. Elite leagues are for those that want to compete at the top level. 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.
