View Sport Rules


Participation in the Intramural Sports Program is completely voluntary. Individuals participate at their own risk and absolve the University of Virginia of responsibility for any injuries incurred during the activity. All individuals should be in good physical condition. Participants are encouraged to provide their own health insurance and to receive a health examination yearly.

All participants must wear shoes. For outdoor sports, rubber cleated shoes and screw-in cleats will be allowed. Metal cleats of any kind, open heel and/or toe shoes are prohibited. For indoor sports, court shoes must be worn. Any item deemed to be dangerous by Intramural Staff may not be worn during a game.

League Classifications

Men's - Teams may consist of students, faculty, staff and spouses self-identifying as Men or Another Non-Binary. Individuals self-identifying as Women may also participate in this league.

Open - Teams may consist of students, faculty, staff and spouses. There are no gender based rules on roster construct.

Fraternity - Fraternities registered with the Dean of Students Office may compete in the Fraternity League. Teams may consist of the full-time UVA students (minimum 12 credit hours) that are listed on the charter in the Inter-Fraternity Council Office. Full-time grad students can participate in the league if they were an undergraduate member of the fraternity at UVA.

Women's - Teams may consist of students, faculty, staff, and spouses self-identifying as Women or Another Non-Binary.

Co-Rec - Teams may consist of students, faculty, staff, and spouses. Teams may have no more than half of the players on the court/field at the same time who identify as the same gender (Men, Women, or Another Non-Binary).

Division Classifications

Divisions - Most Men's and Co-Rec Leagues, and some other Leagues, will be broken into Competitive and Recreational Divisions for playoffs when possible, based on the teams’ winning percentages during the regular season.  In these leagues, teams with a winning percentage above .500 will be placed in the Competitive Division.  Teams with a winning percentage of .500 or below will be placed in the Recreational Division.

Free Agency

Free Agency is designed to aid those interested in participating in a particular sport who are lacking a team with which to play.  Individuals who do not have a team are encouraged to register through Fusion IM as Free Agents.  Participants searching for additional players to complete their teams are able to search Fusion IM for registered Free Agents in all sports.


The UVA Rec assesses charges for participation in Intramural activities. All entry fees must be paid at the time of entry.


Team captains and participants are responsible for knowing their team’s schedule. In most cases, teams play their regular season contests on the same day throughout the regular season. Scheduling information will be posted on the UVA Rec web page and app.

Employment with Intramural Sports

Student Officials and Supervisors are hired to work for the UVA Rec Intramural Program. The essential qualities for all employees are dependability, self-confidence, a willingness to learn the rules, and the ability to communicate tactfully with participants. Training clinics and scrimmages are held prior to the start of each sport season. Interested individuals should consult the UVA Rec's Jobs page.

Intramural Champions

Champion T-shirts are awarded to the Champions of each sport (teams may receive up to but no more than twice the amount of players required to field a team). A photo of each Championship Team will also be displayed on the Intramural Wall of Fame.
