Spring semester team registration for captains begins Monday, January 27 at 12 p.m.
Team Registration – Captains
|Flag Football (Stadium Ball)||2/16–4/30|
|Futsal (Indoor Soccer)||2/16–4/30|
Players who are invited to a team by a captain that has paid the team fee.
Players who want to play IM Sports but do not have an invite from a captain or enough players to form their own team. IM Sports sets aside a select number of teams each season (in most, but not all sports) specifically for Free Agent players.
Within the same sport and level (e.g. Speed Soccer – Open), you cannot play on multiple teams as both an Invited Player and Free Agent.
The Free Agent program is not intended to accommodate teams that are wait listed or otherwise did not make it into the division of choice. Participants who abuse the Free Agent program will be banned from participation.
To be placed directly onto a FREE AGENT team, click the green "JOIN TEAM" button on our IMLeagues system next to any of the teams with FREE AGENTS in the name (e.g. FREE AGENTS Comp 1). Keep in mind the existing male/female ratio on the roster. IM Sports may transfer you to balance rosters.
You can also list yourself as a Free Agent for any sport by clicking on the "JOIN AS FREE AGENT" button. This does not guarantee you a spot. It is a listing for existing teams looking to add players to their roster.
Free Agent signups are free ($0 transactions) with the purchase of the IM Sports Season Pass ($25)
To participate in Intramural Sports you must have a valid Rec Sports Membership and have purchased the IM Sports Season Pass ($25). Rec Sports promotional/trial memberships and UC Reciprocity facility memberships are not eligible for IM Sports.
All players must be prepared to show Officials a valid Cal 1 ID card (students, faculty or staff) or current Rec Sports Membership Card in order to participate in IM Sports. Individuals without current membership and picture identification will not be allowed to participate.
A team unable to field a minimum number of players with current IM Sports Season Pass and picture identification will forfeit the contest. Participating teams must ensure all participants have purchased the required membership and IM Sports Season Pass at least 24-48 hours prior to their first game.

IM Sports rosters are not intended to be fluid. Once you appear on a roster and play in a game, you may not switch teams. If you are removed from a roster, you lose all eligibility for that sport/season and cannot be added back onto the roster. All rosters lock and are frozen once the regular season ends – no new players may be added to rosters once the regular season ends.
There are restrictions on participation for current and former intercollegiate athletes, current Sport Club athletes, and other “highly competitive” athletes. Captains who wish to place this type of participant on their roster are advised to contact the Intramural Sports Director before adding this type of player to their roster.

Former intercollegiate athletes and red-shirts who have exhausted all NCAA eligibility are eligible to participate in their same sport in the semester following their final season of NCAA eligibility.
Former intercollegiate athletes and red-shirts from Cal and/or other four-year institutions must participate (in their sport) at the highest level offered (‘A’ or ‘Comp’) or at the Recreational level.
For eligibility purposes, a participant is considered a former intercollegiate athlete or red-shirt for a period of five years if he has met one of the requirements of active intercollegiate status above.
In divisions where multiple levels of competition are offered, former intercollegiate athletes and red-shirts must play at the highest level offered. There exists no maximum number of players of such standing provided they are playing at the highest level offered in a sport with at least two competitive levels. In sports and divisions with only one competitive level, a maximum of two individuals holding former intercollegiate or red-shirt status may participate on any given team in the sport in which they competed in at the intercollegiate level.
Members of Sport Clubs may participate in the sport in which they compete but must participate (in their sport) at the highest level offered (‘Premier’ ‘A’ or ‘Competitive’) or at the Recreational level – but not both.
In divisions where multiple competitive levels are offered, Cal Sport Club members must play at the highest level offered. There is no maximum number of players of such standing provided they are playing at the highest level offered in a sport with at least two “competitive levels.” Competitive levels are Premier, A, B, C or Open Competitive. Recreational (REC) leagues are not considered competitive for the purposes of this policy.
In sports and divisions with only one competitive level, a maximum of two individuals holding current Cal Sport Club status may participate on any given team in the sport in which they competed in at the sport club level.
Current professional athletes are ineligible to participate in Intramural Sports. Former professional athletes may participate in the academic year following their last season of employment in professional sports.
In divisions where multiple levels of competition are offered, former professional athletes must play at the highest level offered. There exists no maximum number of players of such standing provided they are playing at the highest level offered in a sport with at least two competitive levels.
In sports and divisions with only one competitive level, a maximum of two individuals holding former professional status may participate on any given team in the sport in which they competed in at the professional level.
These special eligibility considerations regarding the number of former intercollegiate, current Cal Sport Club, and former professional athletes per team applies to sports with teams consisting of five players or more. Otherwise, the number of eligible players per team with special eligibility status is one (e.g., 3-on-3 Basketball or Volleyball).
Failure to abide by this policy will result in forfeiture of all games in which the illegal intercollegiate, Cal Sport Club, former professional athlete, or professional athlete participated.
Penalty: Any team using an ineligible player will forfeit all games in which the ineligible player participated. Forfeiture of a game precludes a team from entering or advancing through the playoffs.
