Our top priority is always the health and safety of our community. Please visit for the most current information for campus.

Intramural Sports Pass

All enrolled UW students are eligible to play intramural sports. UW faculty and staff members with at least a one month Rec Well membership are also eligible. Alumni, community membership, and students from other universities are not eligible for intramural sports. Before registering, participants must first purchase an Intramural Sports Pass on IMLeagues. Watch the video or click on the tabs below to learn more about your options for playing.

< class="uw-accordion-header"> Year Pass ($45)

Our most popular option, the Year Pass gives you unlimited access to all Intramural Sports for the fall, spring, and summer semesters. You can purchase a Year Pass at the beginning of the fall semester through Thanksgiving. Year Pass holders can register a single gender and a co-rec team in as many sports as they would like to play each semester.

< class="uw-accordion-header"> Semester Pass ($25)

This pass is ideal if you’re interested in playing unlimited Intramural Sports for only one semester. You can purchase a Semester Pass for $25 at the beginning of each semester. Semester Pass holders can register a single gender and a co-rec team in as many sports as they would like to play that semester. This is a great option for students studying abroad during part of the year.

< class="uw-accordion-header"> Tournament Pass ($10)

Purchase the tournament pass if you’re interested in playing on only one team in a single tournament this year. If you have so much fun that you want to play on more than one team within the tournament or you want to participate in more sports throughout the year, you will need to upgrade to a (pro-rated) Semester or Year Pass.

< class="uw-accordion-header"> Summer Pass ($5)

Students enrolled in summer classes can participate in all Intramural Sports for $5. Students or participants not enrolled in summer classes must first purchase a Rec Sports Summer Membership to become eligible for summer Intramural Sports. If you already purchased the Year Pass and are enrolled in summer classes or have a summer membership, you do not need to purchase this pass.

< class="uw-accordion-header"> Upgrade Your Pass

Having so much fun that you want to keep playing? You can easily upgrade your Tournament or Semester Pass to play on more teams, in more sports, or in multiple tournaments throughout the year by following these steps:

1. Log in to your IMLeagues profile. Under your name on the homepage, click on the My Payments link.
2. On the My Payments screen, you will see a button for My PayPackages on the right. Click that button to see all of the pass options.
3. This page will show you all three pass options. If you have already purchased a Tournament or Semester Pass, you can upgrade by hitting the Upgrade button associated with the new pass you want.

You will only be charged the difference between the pass you have and the pass you’d like! Remember, the more intramural sports you play, the greater your chances of winning the ultimate prize: an intramural championship t-shirt!
