Competitive vs. Just For Fun

The first decision that you’ll have to make is whether your team wants to be a competitive team or a just for fun team.

Competitive Teams

Competitive teams are eligible for advancements, finals, and ultimately the winning of a championship shirt! In Intramural Leagues, there are also multiple tiers within each team structure which are outlined below in the Leagues Tier Explanation step.

If your team wants to compete as a competitive team, continue down this page to decide on the different team structure options for you to compete in.

Just For Fun Teams

If you’re here to try something new, or you just want to have fun outside of a competitive atmosphere, the Just For Fun category could be right for you! Please note that these teams do not qualify for advancements or championships, and in leagues they are not officiated.

If your team wants to participate as a Just For Fun Team then you can skip over the Team Structure and Tier Explanations, and jump to UBC Community Affiliations. In the Just For Fun category, team gender requirements are not applicable.


Competitive Team Categories

UBC strives to build a respectful and welcoming environment for all participants to enhance well-being, participation and a sense of community on campus through opportunities in Athletics and Recreation. We, acknowledge gender identity and gender expression as a spectrum. If you have further questions about our competitive team categories, please visit our Building a Respectful and Welcoming Environment in Recreation page.

If your team wants to compete on a competitive team you have three different team categories to choose from: Open/Men’s; Women’s, Two-Spirit, Trans, & Gender Non-Conforming; and CoRec. We encourage individuals to self-select where they feel they belong within the participation structure. UBC Recreation welcomes all our participants and we want to encourage participation for all.

Open/Mens Category

Men, Women, Two-Spirit, Trans, Gender Non-Conforming
This category welcomes all individuals to participate regardless of gender.

Women’s (W2STGN) Category

Women, Two-Spirit, Trans, Gender Non-Conforming
This category welcomes participation by those who self-identify as women, two-spirit, trans and gender non-conforming.

CoRec Category

Men, Women, Two-Spirit, Trans, Gender Non-Conforming
This category welcomes all individuals to participate regardless of gender; however, teams must adhere to a maximum number of self-identified men. Please refer to specific programs under the “Event Overview” or “League Overview” tab for additional information.

Once you have selected your team category

If you are registering for an Intramural League, move on to Leagues Tier Explanations to choose the Tier that best suits your team’s skill level in the respective sport.
If you are registering for an Intramural Event, please skip Leagues Tier Explanations and jump to UBC Community Affiliations to decide if your team will compete for a specific UBC Community or in the Campus Wide Division.


UBC Community Affiliations

Regardless of whether you’re competing in a competitive or just for fun team you have the ability to compete as a Campus Wide team or a Divisional team and represent your affiliated UBC Community Unit.

Divisional Teams

What is a Divisional Team?

If your team is made up of individuals from a single UBC Community Unit – faculty, residence, sorority, or fraternity (or CoRec teams with all men from one fraternity and women from one sorority) – you qualify to compete as a Divisional team. For a list of all Divisions and Units, visit the Unit Rankings by Division page.

For Divisional Teams, each team is allowed one “import”, an individual on your roster who is not from your declared unit. However, teams competing in the CoRec Hindmarch Division are not allowed any imports.

Why compete as a Divisional Team?

Throughout the year we keep track of the participation and performance of teams that qualify in Divisional Units. Typically, teams are comprised of members entirely from a single faculty, department, greek chapter, or residence. At the end of the year at the Hall of Fame event, awards are handed out for each Division based on their unit’s participation.

In addition, competitive teams who qualify as a Divisional Team compete separately form Campus Wide Teams in Day of the Longboat, Storm The Wall, and in all Intramural Leagues. There are entirely separate championship awards for Divisional teams. For more information, visit the Earl Awards and Unit Points page.

Campus Wide Teams

The Campus Wide division does not have any restrictions on units.

Please register online or at the Student Recreation Centre. Registration is open until 5pm November 6th, 2017.
