Intramural Sports

The Intramural Sports program provides BGSU students/faculty/staff of Bowling Green State University through a commitment to offering a wide variety of competitive activities for players of all skill levels and interests. Qualified staff provide a fun, yet structured environment that focuses on the health, safety and developmental needs of all Intramural Sports participants. Individual, dual and team activities are available. Men's, women's and co-rec teams are fielded through sorority, fraternity and independent leagues.

Many sports offer both competitive and recreational leagues and most are played once a week, Monday through Thursday between 5 PM and midnight. A few activities take place on Saturday and Sunday. Regular season play lasts approximately three to four weeks, with one week of single-elimination playoffs for qualifying teams. BGSU students/faculty/staff are eligible. Restrictions apply for varsity/club athletes in same Intramural sports.

Student intramural score keepers
Student intramural officials

BGSU students interested in officiating or score keeping for Intramural Sports are required to attend a Group Hiring Clinic in order to be considered. Applicants are not paid for attendance at these clinics and are responsible to know the rules for the sport in which they are interested. Rule downloads are located on the IMLeagues website. Once hired as an Intramural official or score keeper, those employees with favorable ratings/evaluations may be recruited to work IM sports throughout the academic year.
