The Intramural program is one of the most appreciated traditions at Binghamton University. We offer competitive and recreational activities within a variety of individual and team sports that involve more than 3,000 students annually. Individual sports include billiards, racquetball, tennis and table tennis. Team sports include Flag and Arena Flag Football, Outdoor and Indoor Soccer, Volleyball, Triples and Four Team Bowling, 3v3 and 5v5 Basketball, Floor Hockey, Coed Dodgeball, Coed Kickball and Softball. The general underlying principle of Intramurals is simply "There is something for everyone".
Who can join?
Participation in intramural sports is limited to current Binghamton University students, faculty and staff (alumni, spouse and volunteers are not eligible). Participants can register as an individual or as a team.
NCAA student athletes may not participate in “like” sports (i.e. soccer athletes may not play IM soccer but could play IM Basketball).
You must present your valid BU ID card at every game to play.
Free agents — individual registration
We offer a free agent system to help players who do not have a team on which to participate. Registration will be done online using our new process through IMLeagues.
At the conclusion of the registration period, all registered free agents are placed on a team together. While we can not guarantee that a team will be formed, we make every effort to offer all free agent registrations the opportunity to play.
Team sport registration
Some sports have multiple leagues (i.e. men’s, women’s, coed) and multiple divisions (i.e. recreational and competitive). In coed leagues there is a predetermined ratio of male-to-female players who must remain on the court/field at all times during play.
When registering a team may request which league and/or division in which the team wants to participate, if applicable. Teams are also given the ability to request a preferred day and time for competition. Every effort is made to accommodate a team's preferences, however some leagues and nights fill up very quickly. League maximums are based on facility space. Our online registration system (IM Leagues) will update teams as to what days/times/leagues are available. Once leagues are closed teams may be added to a waiting list pending space availability.
Once a team decides in which league to participate, it is assigned a random pool. When possible, teams may choose a distinct pool to play; for example a group may choose to play in a pool assigned to student organizations (fraternities/sororities).
Captain's meetings are done via e-mail. The captains meeting e-mail consists of rules, intramural policies, field/court assignments, along with all other applicable information.
