New for Summer 2018, we have revisited our Intramurals Participation Structure policies in an effort to improve the inclusivity of our programs. There are different team structures that depend on the gender expression and identity compositions of a team. We have updated the names and descriptions of these different structures to better describe the competition environments in each. For more information on gender identity and gender expression please visit our Inclusive Recreation: Gender Identity and Expression page.

When you are registering a team for UBC Recreation Intramurals Leagues or Events, there are a number of different participation options for your team based on the composition of your team in terms of skill level and your gender identity and expression. For the Summer Soccer league, you must sign up for a Competitive Team Category:

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; 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 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

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.

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 Rec 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. For 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:

  • Free Agent Meeting for Fall Intramural Leagues & Events – Tuesday, Sep 11 2018 – 5:00pm – NOTE: There are three separate meetings. One is at the Totem Park Residence Commonsblock, one at the Place Vanier Residence Commonsblock, and one at the Orchard Commons Commonsblock
  • Free Agent Meeting for Fall Leagues – Thursday, Sep 13, 2018 – 5:00pm – Student Recreation Centre
  • Free Agent Meeting for Winter Leagues – Thursday, Jan 3, 2019 – 5:00pm – Student Recreation Centre

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 12th 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 Programs

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 Wheelchair Basketball and Cricket. Check out the Drop-In Schedule
