Intramural FAQ’s

What is Student Priority registration versus General Public registration?

In order to ensure more students are able to participate within Campus Recreation intramurals, student priority registration has been created during which only students will be able to register for intramurals.

Students are able to create and join teams as normal during this time frame (as well as after general public registration has opened). Non-students (community members, staff, and faculty) will not be able to register new teams or join a team until general public registration opens. 

Student teams are still welcome to have community-members on them, they will just not be able to join until after general public registration has opened.

All participants have until the outlined team registration deadline for their respective sport to register a team. 

I am a student but it won’t let me register for intramural sports?

Ensure you are selecting the yellow button and using your Lakehead Single Sign-On to sign in on the portal. If it still will not let you register, please contact with proof of enrollment.

Why can’t I invite a community-member to my team?

There are two possible reasons: 

  1. General public registration has not yet opened. General public members will be able to join existing teams, or creating new teams, as of Jan 10, 2024
  2. The individual you are attempting to invite does not have an account in our system. In order to be invited, a user must have an account on our portal first with that email before you can send an invitation. Please direct your teammate to visit and create their account. 

What is the cost to participate in Intramurals?

The majority of intramurals are $31/student, or $42/non-student. Some leagues may vary due to different number of games or additional expenses, such as ice time.

Why are intramurals charged per player, instead of per team?

Data shows that many captains historically do not receive full reimbursement from their team, or were unable to pay the cost for a full team at the time of registration. To help ease the financial burden on captains and reduce the amount of money needed at the time of registration, intramurals are now priced per player instead of per team.

Who is allowed to play intramurals?

Almost all of our leagues are open to students, faculty, staff, and the general public that are 17 years of age or older. The only exception to this is Ice Hockey, which is for students only. Please note that student priority registration is in effect, to ensure spaces within our leagues for our students.

How do I register for intramurals?

Registration is done fully online for our intramurals! See our registration instructions above for assistance. Need to register in person? Contact to arrange in person registration as needed. 

Do I need to have a whole team organized in order to play?

No! You can either register a team and attempt to recruit free agents to your roster, or you can register as free agents and all request to join the same team together! Campus Rec works with captains and free agents to find individuals a space within the league, but it is not a guarantee that free agents will find a team.

Please note if you do choose to register a team and do not meet the required roster minimums, you may lose your spot in the league if the requirements are not met. 

I didn’t join a team before the league started, but I still want to play. Can I join late?

Yes – roster additions can be made up until week 4 of any league sport. Players do need to participate in at least 2 regular season games to be eligible in playoffs. 

Do I have to be available all days/times listed for my sport?

Ideally, yes. We are able to take game time requests, however there is no guarantee that we can always place your team at a certain time.

What is the skill level of the teams?

Within all of our leagues, we have teams that vary all the way from beginner to experienced! All skill levels are welcomed into our leagues.
