Program Objectives and Division Descriptions

Intramural Sports provides broad recreational and competitive opportunities for the university community through team and individual sports and special event activities. Events are offered on a voluntary basis in all programs and scheduling is arranged to coincide with the participants' leisure time. These programs have been developed and are operated as an integral part of the total educational objectives of the university.

Information Sheets, Sport Rules, Results and Schedules

Information and schedules will be distributed to Intramural Team Captains through established communication channels as well as at team captain meetings. In addition, information can be found on the bulletin boards on the lower level of the PEB and the Pohl Recreation Center. Managers and captains are responsible for checking on entry deadlines, rule or date changes, playing times, etc. Regularly scheduled playing times and dates CANNOT be given over the phone by the staff to prevent misinformation given or received. All information concerning the Intramural program may be found on bulletin boards located on the first floor of the PEB. Rules for all events and sports are available, upon request, at the front desk of the Recreational Sports Office and at our website, www.unt.edu/recsports. Information sheets are distributed to all team captains and participants prior to the start of each season or event. It is the responsibility of each team sport captain to ensure that all members of their team are thoroughly familiar with all game rules. Nationally adopted rules are adhered to in each activity (i.e. USSSA, NCAA, NIRSA, USVBA). Local ground rules are established where modifications are necessary.
