Free Agent & Single Participants

How do I find or create a team?

The most traditional way to find a team for all UBC Intramurals Leagues, Tournaments, Races, and Events is to talk to people in your classes, faculties, clubs, residences, and among your friends to find people who are also interested in participating in one of our dozens of programs.

Once you’ve got at least the minimum # of players of players to sign up, you can register online at the UBC Intramurals Online Registration Page , or in person at the Operations Desk of the Student Recreation Centre

Please be aware of the registration deadlines for the individual programs, and note that many of our programs do fill up, so it is better to register before the registration deadline.

What if I still can’t find a team?

1. Free Agent Facebook Page

UBC Intramurals hosts a Facebook page where players who are looking for a team, and teams that are looking for more players can be connected.  Please use the program specific threads for the League or Event (s) you are interested in participating in.  The UBC Intramurals Free-Agent Facebook page can be found hereFor a more detailed listing of possible play times for all League Sports, please check out the UBC Intramurals Days of Play Schedule

2. Free Agent Meetings

Your second option is to attend the Free-Agent Meeting. 

At this meeting, we will try and match you up with other like-minded people and hopefully get you into position to register a team. 

Here are the currently scheduled Free Agent Meetings

I’ve never played before, or I haven’t played in a long time. What can I do?

This year, we’ve added a Learn to Play night for each league.  During this free, hour-long session, you will be taught the basic skills and rules of the sport or activity you are interested in so that you are confident going into the Intramural Season.  Learn to Play night is Wednesday, September 14th for all League sports.  Specific time and location can be found on each League Page under Important Dates.

I’m looking for something a little more casual

UBC Intramurals offers a lot of casual or informal programs for those who are looking to play their favourite sports, but without a long commitment or a competition structure to follow. 

Drop-In Sports
Most facilities under UBC Recreation have drop-in opportunities to play various sports associated with that venue including ice hockey, swimming, basketball, volleyball, and futsal. There are also opportunities to try less traditional sports such as Dodgeball and Cricket once in a while. Check out the Drop-In Schedule

Morning/Afternoon Leagues
Morning/Afternoon Leagues give participants the flexibility of drop in, with the structure of our traditional leagues. Participants will have an official, game equipment, and guaranteed play time, but with no pressure to show up each week or be responsible to a team. Check out the Morning/Afternoon Leagues for Soccer (Afternoon), and Ice Hockey (Morning).

Level of Competition

UBC Intramurals offers a variety of competitive levels of play in most of our programs. To get an idea about how we separate these levels, and what experience you should have in each of these levels, please have a look at our Competition Structure

UBC Adult Summer Soccer League

If you are an individual (or small group) that is looking to play in the UBC Adult Summer Soccer League, but do not have a team, please email and we will do what we can to get you playing this summer.
