Intramural Sports

Intramural Sports provides the UCLA community an opportunity to participate in organized sports and recreational activities. A variety of leagues, tournaments, and special events are offered each quarter. Individuals may register an entire team, or for most events, register as a free-agent and be matched with other free-agents to form a team. Participation is more leisurely than club sports, and promotes an active lifestyle and friendly competition in a fun, safe environment.

Intramural Sports


Welcome to the UCLA Intramural Sports Program! The program consists of 30 leagues, tournaments, meets, and special events with more than 7000 participants each year. Activities are offered each quarter, including limited activities during the summer quarter. To help provide a better overview of the program, consider the following facts:

  • Participants can register an entire team or sign up as a free-agent for league events.
  • Most leagues are divided up into a variety of divisions and classifications. Divisions allow for competition against a particular group (e.g. fraternities) and classifications allow for competition at different skill levels (e.g. A, B and C).
  • Most indoor league games are played between 6-11 pm Monday – Thursday, with some games on Sunday between 3-10 pm. Outdoor league games are played between 4-10 pm Monday – Thursday, with some games on Friday between 3-6 pm and Sunday between 3-10 pm.
  • Most league and tournament events are officiated.

Registering for an Intramural Sports activity is simple!  Before registering, it is important that you understand the divisions offered and that you know which division you would like to register for before paying the registration fee.  Most divisions are restricted to certain types of participants (e.g. fraternity, ORL, etc.), however, independent divisions are not restricted.  Smaller divisions such as ORL and sorority may have fewer available playing dates and times compared to a larger division such as independent – men.  Playing days and times should be viewed on-line prior to registering.  Once you pay for a team and choose a division, you may only be able to change divisions if space is available.    


The registration period begins at 9 am on the start date listed and ends at 6 pm on the end date listed.  Please be aware that registration for certain divisions / events may close prior to the end of the registration period if a division or event reaches the registration maximum.  Payment secures a spot in the event and division indicated on the payment receipt.

Unified Sports

UCLA Recreation is continuing our partnering with Special Olympics Southern California and Special Olympics at UCLA to host Unified Sports leagues throughout the 2017-18 academic year!  Unified Sports promotes inclusion by joining  individuals with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. The teams are made up of those with similar age and ability, with sport as the common bond. Special Olympics pioneered the unified sports approach, using sport as a vehicle for inclusion.  Unified Sports at UCLA will consist of  teams made up of Special Olympics athletes from around the area and UCLA students as the Unified partners.
