Forming a team can be done in several different ways. If you have a full roster for your specific league, head over to the SRC (Student REC Centre) or visit our website online to register, and you will be well on your way to becoming champions.

Your first and most accessible resource is your faculty’s undergraduate society. Whether you’re an individual looking for a team or a team looking for individuals, your undergraduate society’s sports representative can connect you with likeminded individuals who share your course load and/or schedule. They can help you fill a team or find a team, and the best part is that your team would be eligible for the divisional category that your faculty belongs to. This means that you’ll have others to share your faculty pride with and be able to earn points towards your faculty!

Secondly, if you’re living in residence or affiliated with Collegia, you can find potential teammates through the resources available to you. Talk to your advisor or residence councils to get connected to pre-existing teams or individuals around you that are also looking to form a team. It is common for houses and/or floors in residence to create teams. Talk to your residence or Collegia advisor for more information.

Thirdly, if you can’t find a group or individual to fill your team, come out to the Free Agent meetings happening this week. The first Free Agent Meeting is taking place on September 12 at the first year residences; Totem, Orchard and Vanier from 5pm-6pm. If you can’t make it to the first one, the next one will be happening on September 14 at the SRC from 5pm-6pm. Come prepared with the sport you want to play and tier you want to complete in, but we can also answer any questions there about the leagues.

Your last option is the Free Agent Facebook page. This is a great place to round out your team, but we highly recommend that you use the above resources before trying this. Forming a team in your faculty, residence, or Collegia is a much more effective and often enjoyable way to participate in an Intramural league. You can find the page here.

Participating in Intramural Sports can be a great way to meet new people, relieve stress, and get exercise outside of walking to class. Use the tips above to get a team together and compete to win.
