The Department of Campus Recreation recognizes the need for recreational activities at “The University in the Forest”. In accordance with the needs of the students, the Intramural Sports program offers opportunities for the Drew University community to participate in a variety of team and individual sports leagues, as well as single elimination bracket sports and tournaments. The program is designed in a manner that promotes safety, fairness, and opportunity for all to participate. We are dedicated to participant satisfaction, while accommodating a wide range of interests and skill levels. Programs are open to all current Drew University students, faculty and staff.
(Note: Varsity athletes of each sport are not allowed to play in that intramural sport. i.e. Varsity Soccer players cannot play indoor or outdoor soccer. Varsity athletes who are in season cannot participate in any intramural sports during that season.)

- Anyone that has achieved professional status in any sport is ineligible to participate in an equivalent sport.
Participants may only play on one team per sport.
Campus Recreation Intramural Sports at Drew University holds sportsmanship as “Our Golden Rule of Sport”. Sportsmanship is a great tradition in sports and competition that means playing clean, handling both victory and defeat with grace, style, and dignity, respecting the judgment of referees and officials, and treating opponents with respect. Sportsmanship is a style and an attitude, and it can have a positive influence on everyone around you.
The captain is a liaison between their team and the Intramural Staff. Therefore the captain should be a responsible person on the team. As captain, you should attend the captains’ meeting to learn of the sport rules and league rules. It’s also when the schedules are discussed and later published. You will be the spokesperson for your team regarding availability. This becomes more important for sports that play during the week. The meeting takes place once per season and is usually the Tuesday after registration closes. If you are not able to make the meeting, you must send another teammate in your place.
The captains are also the ones called if there is a last minute change to the schedule. Team/league wide emails with any updates and changes will also be sent, but might not be read in time. During the contests only the captain can discuss calls with the officials. For this purpose someone else may be designated as the “game captain” in the absence of the captain or if the captain does not want to take on that tactical responsibility.
Four Reasons Why You Should Do Intramurals
1. They are an amazing stress reliever
Stressed about an upcoming exam? That group project? Your computer that just can’t seem to print? Running around with a bunch of friends can do wonders for reducing your stress level.
2. They provide great exercise
While most college students would like to go to the gym on a regular basis, few actually do. With a predetermined time already in your schedule, your workout is more likely to happen. In addition, you’re less likely to miss your “workout” and the time will pass quicker than if you were alone in the gym.
3. They’re a great way to meet people
You may be getting used to seeing similar people in the courses for your major, in your residence hall, or at the events you go to on campus. Intramurals can be a great way to meet students that you may not otherwise even run into on campus.
4. Incredible Leadership opportunities
Every team needs a captain, right? If you’re looking to build your resume or test out your leadership skills, intramural teams can be a great place to start.
