This is a free program to use and user accounts are automatically generated for our campus community. Accounts must be activated prior to participating by logging in with your UW-Whitewater NetID and password.

IMLeagues is also used as a way to inform the campus community of upcoming IM opportunities, activity season news, cancellations, etc. Emails are sent by our administrative team using an IMLeagues message feature and users may opt out on automated texts/emails at any time.

IMLeagues is the third-party Intramural Sports management system used by UW-Whitewater Rec Sports. IMLeagues is your one-stop shop for all things related to your IM Sports involvement! Registrations, payments, rosters, scores, standings, schedules, playoffs and more are all managed via IMLeagues.

This is a free program to use and user accounts are automatically generated for our campus community. Accounts must be activated prior to participating by logging in with your UW-Whitewater NetID and password.

IMLeagues is also used as a way to inform the campus community of upcoming IM opportunities, activity season news, cancellations, etc. Emails are sent by our administrative team using an IMLeagues message feature and users may opt out on automated texts/emails at any time.

IMLeagues has site developers and company administrators who operate day-to-day site features. However, all UW-Whitewater-specific content (registrations, payments, rosters, schedules, results, brackets, etc.) is developed/added by Rec Sports professional staff, who are very knowledgeable about how IMLeagues works. Any items related to IMLeagues and your experience should be addressed to UW-Whitewater Rec Sports personnel first.

IMLeagues may send automated emails related to team registrations, roster additions, payments, contest results, etc. Members must individually opt out of automated messages.

Intramural Sports administrative staff often uses IMLeagues to communicate with our participants regarding season operations, weather updates and to send registration reminders. Our staff can override personal settings related to emails.

IMLeagues and Intramural Sports do not use member information/email addresses for financial gain and no one outside of the UW-Whitewater Rec Sports Department should be contacting you as a result of your participation in IM Sports. Automated emails are generated via an algorithm in IMLeagues. Other emails are generated by Rec Sports admin staff.

It is strongly recommended messages from IMLeagues are not ignored.

Admittedly, there are many ads on display in IMLeagues, most of which use cookies from your individual web browser(s). Ad content is beyond our control, for which we apologize. IMLeagues uses ad services in order to keep operating expenses at a minimum, which is ultimately a good thing for you, our users. We do apologize in-advance if you experience any inconvenience(s) related to an abundance of advertisements.

Individuals may choose to remove ads from their personal IMLeagues page for a $4.00 fee. This fee is payable online only and is not something controlled by UW-Whitewater (only the site developers and IMLeagues company personnel). Individuals may need to renew their payment every academic year. Intramural Sports does not have any $4.00 charges affiliated with the program. Refunds are permitted for paying for ad removal, but not guaranteed. Please be careful when exploring the possibility of removing ads.

Individuals must opt out of automated text alerts, such as contest reminders, score updates, team news and more. This is something that should be done at the beginning of each academic year if you do not wish to receive alerts and push notifications.

In some instances, our administrative staff may override your preferences and send a text message, but this is done only in the event urgent communication is necessary.

Although our department is looking into the possibility of having an app, IMLeagues is best utilized via its desktop version. The desktop version is also accessible on smartphones, tablets and lap tops.

IMLeagues uses a single-sign on feature where users can gain access using the UW-Whitewater-issued NetID and password. Most members of our campus community already have profiles created for them (i.e. names and student IDs are loaded into the system before each semester). Profiles must be activated by logging in. Each time someone logs in for the first team every academic year, they will be prompted to ensure their demographic information is correct.

Sign in to IMLeagues here

IMLeagues does have an online chat feature, which is accessible at the bottom of its site. If you click this option, you would be chatting with an IMLeagues site developer or staff member, NOT someone affiliated with UW-Whitewater.

It is suggested to try to contact a member of the Intramural Sports staff or Rec Sports front desk. Our on-site staff is also well-versed in IMLeagues functions. Contacting imsports@uww.edu or calling 262-472-1145 are the two best options aside from visiting us in room 100 of the Williams Center.

Eligibility issues can be tough to categorize as they can happen for a number of reasons. The most common reasons are:

- someone may not have been enrolled in classes/paid seg fees/been in the HR system at the time IDs were registered in the system

- there may be a behavioral or outstanding fee issue

Eligibility status can be changed, with the exact process depending on the reason for the ineligibility. Please contact our staff for details.

Teams are created by a team captain. The captain logs in to IMLeagues and selects the league and/or division the team will participate in. In order for a team registration to be confirmed, the captain must pass a rule and policy quiz, acknowledge a participation waiver and pay the team entry fee. Other individual team members do not need to pay a fee when they go through the roster addition process.

Once payment is confirmed (please be patient through this process and DO NOT close your browser), the team captain should see their team in its registered league and/or division and can then begin the roster assembly process.

IM staff can assist with creating your team if you have any questions or concerns! Spots are not reserved and are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.

No PayPal account is necessary! PayPal is simply the payment collection method for IMLeagues.

You do not need to pay online, although it is preferred. Teams are automatically registered once their payment is received online. This automated process ensures the best possible customer experience and guarantees teams have a highly likelihood to get their preferred league/division spot.

Payments are also accepted in-person in room 100 of the Williams Center. We will create your team on-site with you at the time of payment. To ensure a member of our administrative team is available to help you, it is recommended in-person payments are made during a scheduled appointment. Credit cards are not accepted in room 100, however a no-fee ATM is located on the second floor of the Williams Center near the Sideline Café.

Registrations are not accepted over the phone or social media.

DO NOT DELETE YOUR TEAM. Please notify administrative staff and we will take care of this for you. We may also be able to process a refund in the event a team needs to be removed. We may not be able to recover your information if a team is deleted.

If your team needs to be moved, INFORM US RIGHT AWAY. We can move a team for you. DO NOT DELETE YOUR TEAM. We cannot reserve spots for teams, either as spots fill on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Depending on the situation, yes. These situations are defined in our participant handbook. Typical refund situations include:

- accidental deletion/recreation of a team

- registered team can no longer participate AND season has not started

Refunds are not permitted if:

- a team is dropped from participation for any reason

- a team does not qualify for playoffs

Situations not outlined via this question may apply. Refund decisions are made at the discretion of administration.

Intramural Sports processes refunds through IMLeagues and PayPal. A PayPal account is not required. Please allow 3-5 business days for refunds to process. Refund requests made after 14 days of team registration may not be permissible depending on the situation.

Rec Sports memberships are not impacted by IM registrations or team refunds.

We like to compare IMLeagues to social media platforms. From a team’s page, captains can invite members to join their team, or prospective members can search for a team and request to join. Captains must approve all roster transactions.

If a captain sends an invite, the prospective member typically receives an email (possibly a text message) including invitation details. If the invitation is accepted, the member follows a link to sign in to IMLeagues and is immediately directed to the registration process (rules quiz and participation waiver). Once the quiz is passed and waiver is acknowledged, participants are typically going to appear on a team’s roster. We encourage all parties involved to be patient during this process and make sure they see their names on the intended roster. Roster additions are not final until the name appears on the roster.

If a prospective member requests to join a given team, they must wait until the captain accepts the request. Once the request is accepted, the member can then follow the roster addition process outlined above.

Roster members must check-in for (not necessarily play in) at least one regular season contest in order to be eligible for playoff competition. Rosters freeze in IMLeagues following the fourth “week” of a regular season. Roster additions are accepted thru week five but must be facilitated by administrative staff. Rosters officially freeze following the regular season’s conclusion and additions are typically not permitted.

All members must pass a basic policy and activity rule quiz in order to be placed on a roster. This is a requirement with the sole intent of using these quizzes as a platform to ensure all participants are aware of emphasized components of the program. Rules and policies are available on-site upon request. All IM Sports staff members are trained on how to use rule and policy resources along with how to interpret certain situations.

All participants must also acknowledge our participation waiver in IMLeagues as part of the roster addition process. Participation in IM Sports is voluntary. Electronic signatures are acceptable in IMLeagues.

Yes and no.

Yes – only if a regular season has not completed a full first two “weeks” of its schedule – OR – if after two weeks, if a player has not yet participated in a contest on behalf of the team they are currently a member of. Team captains for all teams involved in the roster move must approve the switch.

No – Rostered members may not switch teams if a season is past its second full “week” and they have participated in at least one contest. Rosters for all teams officially become frozen once a regular season concludes.

A team’s captain role may be transferred to any other team member at any time.

Some circumstances not outlined above may apply. Roster moves are approved at the discretion of administration.

Team information, including rosters, schedules, scores, standings and sportsmanship averages are viewable on the following sites in IMLeagues:

- an activity’s league page (i.e. men’s, women’s, co-rec leagues, etc.)

- a league’s division page (i.e. Tuesdays 7:00 pm, Wednesdays 9:00 pm, etc.)

- a team’s individual team page (accessed by clicking team’s name or via an individual’s personal IMLeagues profile page)

If you believe there are errors in score and standing reports, please contact us immediately and we will review your contest scoresheets. Teams must protest final scores, standings and sportsmanship ratings by 10:00 am the day following the conclusion of an activity’s regular season.

Teams must qualify for playoffs. Playoff qualifications are addressed prior to each season and teams receive a playoff reminder memo around “week four” of their regular season.

For larger activities (i.e. basketball, flag football, soccer, softball, volleyball), blank brackets are assembled within 24 hours after the conclusion of the activity’s regular season. Teams then receive an email containing their bracket assignments and have a few hours to view their respective brackets and how they will progress (dates, times, locations, etc.). Then, at a pre-determined time, playoff brackets open for teams to “draft” their bracket spot. Draft orders are established using final regular season results across all divisions within a given league. Standing tie-breakers are also used when necessary. Teams that do not log in to select a bracket spot are automatically assigned a remaining spot based on a traditional seeding method. Administrative staff reserves the right to change the playoff bracket process based on the number of qualifying teams, and academic/facility calendars.

For all other activities, IM Sports administrative staff will automatically seed teams based on final regular season standings. Playoff matchups will then follow traditional seeding methods.

Reminder – teams must protest final scores, standings and sportsmanship ratings by 10:00 am the day following the conclusion of an activity’s regular season.

We understand not all teams/players can attend every scheduled contest/event. In the event that happens, all we ask is a team representative (captain preferred) contacts our office well in-advance of the contest. Forfeit requests are accepted via email to imsports@uww.edu, SchneideMD30@uww.edu, phone call to 262-472-1145 or in-person in Williams Center Room 100.

Forfeits are no fun and impact your scheduled opponent(s), assigned staff, facility schedules and other user groups who could have used facility space. We take experiences of all user groups seriously and ask if you have to forfeit, that your team respects the experiences of all impacted parties.

Forfeits result in a loss in standings and lower sportsmanship ratings. Forfeit fines may also be applied to the team by admin staff, epending on the situation.

Thank you for doing your part in not forfeiting a scheduled contest/event.

Intramural (IM) Sports are on-campus activities for the UW-Whitewater campus community only. Activities are both competitive and recreational in-nature and feature a wide variety of options ranging from team sports (i.e. basketball, flag football, soccer, softball, volleyball, etc.) to individual/dual sports (i.e. badminton, bag toss, Esports, fantasy sports, tennis, etc.). Our staff lives by the motto, “A Sport for Everyone, and Everyone in a Sport,” and we take a lot of pride in providing positive, engaging experiences for as many Warhawks as possible.

There are a lot of benefits to participating with Intramural Sports. Not only do our activities provide opportunities to get exercise, compete and continue to play the sports you grew up enjoying, but involvement often leads to increased social interaction, making long-lasting memories, meeting new people and being introduced to some life-long recreational habits. Studies also show recreational involvement often provides good stress relief and may lead to higher academic performance.

Based on a tier of competitiveness and involvement:

Intercollegiate Athletics: Most competitive. Division III athletics as governed by the NCAA and WIAC. Each team has a dedicated coaching staff on university payroll with higher expectations for involvement. Athletes may have minimal (if any) financial commitment/requirement and all equipment is provided. The university arranges travel and university-appointed administrators make decisions on day-to-day team operations. Roster cuts are permitted and strict eligibility guidelines may be in-place. Intercollegiate teams compete in the WIAC and have daily team requirements. Athletes cannot participate on intramural or club teams in comparable activities.

Club Sports: Mainly competitive with some recreational components. Not defined by a specific division (in most cases) and not regulated by the NCAA (although some clubs may use NCAA competition guidelines). Although clubs are student-lead and receive some funding from the institution, members may be asked to make contributions in the form of membership dues and fundraising. There is no full department committed to clubs given their status as student organizations. Clubs have a couple of practices and semi-regular meetings each week and may travel and compete with other institutions across the state, region and country. Although travel roster limitations may apply, no roster cuts are permitted and eligibility guidelines are less strict (mainly academic and behavioral). Club athletes may participate in intramural activities.

Intramural Sports: Activities offered on-campus only. All teams are assembled with other members of the UW-Whitewater campus community. Although the competition level is high, activities tend to be more recreational and fun in-nature. Championship teams compete for the coveted intramural championship t-shirt! All eligibility guidelines are established by UW-Whitewater campus administrators. A small participation fee is required for each team.

Any currently-enrolled student, faculty or staff member may participate in the program. There may be some circumstances in-which an individual comes up as ineligible in our system. If that is ever the case, please contact us and we’ll work with you to find a solution. Please be advised there may be some situations in-which someone may not be eligible.

Alumni, family members, campus visitors, community members, etc. who are not classified as current students, faculty or staff members are not permitted to participate in Intramural Sports as the program does receive funding from segregated fees.

All members must be on a team roster and present a valid UW-Whitewater ID when prompted in order to check in.

Yes! Although a vast majority of IM opportunities are scheduled for the main campus, our office does work with UW-Rock County administrators to offer some programs on the Janesville campus. The intent is to offer at least one opportunity to the UW-Rock County campus per quarter (two per semester), which is subject to change. Opportunities will be listed on the IM Sports website under the “Rock County” tab via the “List of Current Activities” section of the site.

There is a minimal cost affiliated with IM participation, which varies on the activity.

Team activities require a team captain to pay a team fee at the time of registration. Team fees currently have a base cost of $25 per team, with additional fees added for each extra staff member required to facilitate a contest. As of Fall 2020, the most expensive team activity is flag football at $45/team (three officials and a scorekeeper needed on top of the base fee). Team fee collection is the responsibility of the team captain and is not something regulated by our office. In most cases, captains ask their players to contribute an average of $5 for registration.

Individual/dual activities are currently $5 (singles) or $10 (doubles).

Fees are payable online via IMLeagues or in-person in Room 100 of the Williams Center. Credit card is not an option for in-person payment although there is a no-fee ATM located on the second floor of the Williams Center. A personal PayPal account is NOT required to pay for a team registration.

Teams are mainly formed by a group of friends, roommates, floor mates, classmates, organizations, etc. Teams are registered by an appointed captain who then assembles a team roster in IMLeagues.

If someone wants to participate without a team affiliation, they can sign up on the IMLeagues “Free Agents List.” Via this list, free agents can share their availability to participate, past playing experiences, etc. It is not a guarantee a free agent will be picked up, as it is up to a captain to invite a free agent to a roster. Free agents can also request to join a team which a captain must authorize.

In the event there are enough free agents registered to field a legal roster, IM administration may attempt to group free agents together to form a team.

Intramural Sports are played Sundays thru Thursdays in the evening (mainly 7 thru 11 pm). Depending on the activity, teams play either once or twice per week during the regular season. Teams still competing in playoffs may have scheduled contests multiple times throughout a week. No on-campus events are scheduled for Fridays or Saturdays, although independent matches (i.e. Esports, racquet sports) may be played if opponents agree. On average, from contest preparation to cool down, a single contest spans as long as 90 minutes.

The intent is for regular seasons to span five contests. Depending on the activity, that means a season could be 2.5 (two contests per week) or five weeks in-length (one contest per week).

Coaches are not a requirement and are not recognized. If a team wishes to have a “coach,” the individual in that role must be on the team roster and checked in to play. Practices are not scheduled by Rec Sports although teams may choose to “practice” during open recreation periods if the facility space allows.

Teams qualify for playoffs by meeting the following criteria:

- winning at least two regular season contests

- maintaining an average sportsmanship rating of 3.0 out of 4

- adhering to the IM Sports forfeit policy

- not having any outstanding fees or fines (i.e. forfeit fines or lost/damaged equipment)

In the event a team does not receive a full season schedule (five regular season contests), the team is automatically placed into playoffs as long as sportsmanship, forfeits and fine policies are met. Having a forfeited contest does not count as not receiving a full schedule as forfeits count as victories for the offended team and a loss for the offending team.

Intramural Sports are governed nationwide by the National Intramural and Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA). NIRSA does make rule and policy suggestions that most campuses adapt. Our program also uses rules and policies established by the WIAA and NFHS and we also make sure we adhere to UW-Whitewater’s student code of conduct. Rules are updated on an as-needed basis and are available upon request.

To ensure our teams understand basic rule and policy items, a brief rules quiz must be passed in IMLeagues as part of the roster addition process.

Intramural Sports also has a participation handbook that goes into greater detail on some of our policies and procedures. This document is published on the IM Sports website.

IMLeagues is the third-party Intramural Sports management system used by UW-Whitewater Rec Sports. IMLeagues is your one-stop shop for all things related to your IM Sports involvement! Registrations, payments, rosters, scores, standings, schedules, playoffs and more are all managed via IMLeagues.

This is a free program to use and user accounts are automatically generated for our campus community. Accounts must be activated prior to participating by logging in with your UW-Whitewater NetID and password.

IMLeagues is also used as a way to inform the campus community of upcoming IM opportunities, activity season news, cancellations, etc. Emails are sent by our administrative team using an IMLeagues message feature and users may opt out on automated texts/emails at any time.

Because there are limits to how many teams someone may participate on within a given activity, leagues are classified by gender (men, women, co-rec). Divisions are subsets of a league and are typically labeled by the day and time of competition. For example, a Tuesday 7:00 pm division of the Women’s league indicates a team plays their weekly contest every Tuesday at 7:00 pm and their opponent will also be an all-female team.

IM Sports encourages participants to be involved however they so choose and we will honor the gender in which someone wishes to identify.

Registrations, schedules and standings in IMLeagues are organized by leagues and divisions as well.

We understand teams may not be able to attend a scheduled contest. Teams are permitted to miss one scheduled contest per season. More than one absence results in a team being dropped from competition without receiving a refund. There is no penalty if a team provides advance communication regarding their intent to miss a contest. If a team provides a late notification or if they do not communicate at all, the team is subject to receiving a forfeit fine. This policy is in-place to ensure our registered teams have the opportunity to receive an experience they have paid for. We also have staff who are on-site ready to assist. When teams do not show for a contest, this negatively impacts the experience of teams and staff alike.

Forfeiting teams receive a loss in the standings and their opponents receive a win. Sportsmanship rating situations may also apply.

Teams and individuals have many different reasons for participating in IM Sports. As a result, contests may not always be competitive or be seen as enjoyable. The best way our program can ensure as many people are having as enjoyable an experience as possible is to enforce a sportsmanship policy. All teams and individuals are expected to treat opponents, staff, officials, scorekeepers, fans and other members/patrons with respect at all times. Teams receive a sportsmanship rating at the end of each contest, which the captain is expected to acknowledge.

Sportsmanship ratings are assigned on a GPA scale of 0 to 4 points (4 = A, 3 = B, etc.). Teams must meet the sportsmanship average requirement in order to qualify for playoffs. Sportsmanship scores are reported in IMLeagues along with contest scores and standings.

Weather cancellations/postponements do happen for outdoor sports. Our staff will reschedule regular season contests if we are able, but some contests do get lost because of playing conditions. In that case, we work with our teams to be a little more relaxed on our playoff qualifications, although sportsmanship ratings must remain at an appropriate level.

Any playoff contest postponed by unfavorable playing conditions will be rescheduled. Due to bracket progressions, postponed contests typically get rescheduled for the next IM business day (not necessarily for the exact time/location). Other contests may need to be rescheduled as a result as well.

There may be other circumstances where playing a contest would not be safe. In the event of a cancellation, all impacted team captains receive a phone call and all impacted team members receive an IMLeagues email/text notification.

All champions receive a specially-designed and highly-coveted intramural championship t-shirt! The shirts have been worn around campus and the surrounding communities as a badge of honor since 1974! Teams do have shirt quantity limits, but we do our best to ensure all of our champions receive the recognition they deserve! Championship pictures are uploaded to Rec Sports social media accounts for the entire world to see so you can brag to your family and friends!

The program is always looking for individuals to work as officials (i.e. referees). No prior experience is necessary, although there are mandatory training requirements in order to get on the field/court. To learn more about our officiating program, see our site here or complete an online interest form. The program also hires scorekeepers for certain activities. All employment opportunities are for students only and scorekeepers must have Work Study.

Other positions (student coordinators, office staff, supervisors, etc.) are hired every spring for the following academic year. If you are interested, check out information on the Rec Sports employment site. We’d love to have you join the team!

Yes! The Office of Recreation Sports & Facilities also oversees the Club Sports program, which currently has 30 club teams. Although our IM Sports program is often competitive, if you are looking for more opportunities to compete against other institutions and have regular practice times, Club Sports may be the right option for you.

UW-Whitewater is also a member institution of the Wisconsin Intramural and Recreational Sports Association (WIRSA). WIRSA does have various events throughout the academic year where IM teams may have the chance to travel around the state and represent UW-Whitewater, although there are typically costs affiliated with this participation.
