Free Agents

Intramural Sports

Free Agents are players that would like to join an IM Sports team but don’t have enough players to form their own team. To sign up as a Free Agent, you must follow the steps below.

Fall 2016 IM Sports signups begin the week of August 29. Following steps 1-3 below and paying the Free Agent fee at the Rec Sports Online Store is the only way to guarantee a spot on a Free Agent team.


Activate your RSF Membership

You need an RSF membership to play IM Sports. As a result of students voting to pass the Wellness Referendum in April 2015, all current and registered Fall semester Cal students are eligible for Fall IM Sports leagues but must first activate their membership prior to registering for IM Sports leagues. Your registration may be activated via the button below. Your status with the Registrar’s Office must be current.

Non-students must purchase a membership to be eligible for IM Sports.

Pay the Free Agent Fees

Beginning January 25, if you’ve chosen to sign up as a Free Agent, you’ll need to pay the $25 Free Agent fee at the Rec Sports Online Store. Once in the store, find the sport, day, and time that best fits your interest and schedule.

After paying the Free Agent fee, IM Sports will add you to a Free Agent team roster in Sportifik within a few days. You do not need to sign up as a Free Agent in Sportifik. Paying the fees will get you invited to the Free Agent team within a few days.

Pay Free Agent Fees


Set up an Account in Sportifik: The IM Sports Online Portal

Use the Sportifik system to create an account after you have paid the team fee.  Sportifik is where you can track your new team’s schedule and standings.  You can also interact with your team via the team message board.  A few days after paying the Free Agent fee your team info will appear on the site after logging in.

You do not have to sign up as a Free Agent in Sportifik – IM Sports will invite you to join the FREE AGENTS team a few days after paying the fee at the Rec Sports Online Store.

Important Note on Multi-team Enrollment

The Free Agent program is designed to accommodate individuals who are not already on a roster in the same sport. The fee covers placement on an IM Sports team roster and is non-refundable.

If a Free Agent later finds a different team or otherwise opts not to participate with the Free Agent team, no refund is issued. Sportifik blocks multi-team enrollment within the same sport – do not register as a Free Agent in the same sport if you are already on a roster.

Additionally, the Free Agent program is not intended to accommodate teams that are waitlisted or otherwise did not make it into the division of choice. Participants who abuse the Free Agent program will be banned from participation.
