Intramurals

Intramurals

Southern Methodist University's Intramural sports program is offered through the Department of Recreational Sports. The Intramural program has over 3,000 participants involved in over 30 different individual/dual and team sport activities throughout the academic year.

Through Intramurals, students/faculty/staff have the opportunity to learn and/or perfect physical skills, compete in a structured/safe environment, and challenge themselves and others through individual and team competition. Committed to the development of leadership qualities, Intramurals provides students not only the opportunity to lead and organize teams, but there are, also, employment opportunities. These opportunities include officiating, supervising, scorekeeping, equipment management, and office administration.

Sport offerings are scheduled into both competitive and recreational leagues for men, women, fraternities, sororities, residence halls, independents, co-recreational, and faculty/staff groups. Non-affiliated individuals may sign up as an individual participant and be placed on an existing team.

              The Department of Recreational Sports and its staff assume no responsibility for injuries received through participation in Intramural activities.  Students, faculty, and staff are reminded that their participation is completely voluntary! Participation in SMU Intramural activities implies acceptance of all risks that are associated with participation in the activity.  Provisions have been made for immediate first aid care, and when necessary, transportation to a hospital or emergency care facility.  Each year a number of small injuries occur which require hospital treatment, the nature of Intramural activities and the large number of Southern Methodist University students, faculty, and staff who participate combine to make these occurrences inevitable.  The Intramural Department strongly encourages that each participant have a physical examination and secure adequate medical insurance prior to participation.
