Free agency is for individuals who currently do not have an intramural team to play on. Currently, the only guaranteed way to play intramurals is to find a team to join or pay/register as a team. Free agency allows for individuals to communicate and form teams. Captains may also browse listings and pick up players.

Free Agency Options

  1. Sign up as a Free Agent on IMLeagues (instructions below).
    • Contact other free agents to form a team.
    • Wait to be contacted by a team looking for players.
  2. If you live on campus, talk to your Resident Advisor about organizing an intramural team.
