Intramural Program Vision Statement

The intramural sports program offers California State University, Northridge students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to participate in a variety of individual and team sports at various levels of competition. Intramural sports strives to provide structured and organized programs while assisting in the fulfillment of such basic human needs as relaxation, socialization, achievement, and physical wellness while promoting teamwork and mutual respect. It is the goal of the intramural sports program to provide the CSUN community the opportunity to participate in the sport of their choice in a fun, friendly, and safe environment.


All California State University, Northridge students, faculty, and staff are eligible to compete in intramural (IM) activities. The league or division in which an individual may participate in is determined by the participant’s self-identified gender.

All participants are required to sign the Student Recreation Center (SRC) waiver and pay the IM pass fee before competing in any intramural event. All IM participants must have an active membership to the SRC. CSUN faculty and staff members that do not have an active SRC membership must purchase an SRC guest pass and have a host member each time they choose to play, if they decide to not purchase an SRC membership. This goes for sports that are played indoor and outdoor. The IM pass fee for students is $5 and $10 for faculty and staff for the entire semester.

All intramural participants are responsible for their own access into the playing area. All students are automatically members of the SRC. Faculty and staff participants must either purchase an SRC membership or purchase an SRC guest pass on the day of their intramural activity in order to compete.

Eligibility for Greek Participants

General Guidelines

  1. All participants are required to purchase an Intramural (IM) Pass at the Student Recreation Center (SRC) before they play their first game. The cost is $5 for students or $10 for faculty and staff.
  2. Each participant must bring their CSUN ID card (or a government issued photo ID) and their receipt for proof of purchase of an Intramural Pass to every game in order to participate.
  3. Each participant that want to play in that day’s game must have their name on the printed roster that comes from the Intramural Office through
    1. If you wish to add a player to your team’s roster, please make sure that the player is added and approved by the team’s captain on by noon on the day of the game.
  4. Team representatives including players, spectators, team managers, and coaches are ALL subject to the SRC Intramural Rules and Regulations.

Greek Specific Guidelines

  1. All members of a Greek organization are eligible to participate within the respective CSUN Intramural fraternity or sorority sport offerings.
  2. New members (pledges) may participate in the fraternity/sorority league for the Greek organization that they are attempting to join. All other players need to be an active member of the organization to play in a Greek league. Non-active members who are still enrolled or a staff/faculty member at CSUN are welcomed to play in all other non-Greek leagues (open, men’s, women’s, or co-rec).
  3. If a fraternity or sorority protests to the Intramural Office that another team has used a player that is not an affiliated member or under the guise of being a pledge to the Greek organization in question, the Intramural Office will review the active roster to determine the eligibility of the disputed player
    1. If the player is not an active member/pledge of that Greek organization, the game in question will become a forfeit against the team that used the ineligible player. Also, a review will be conducted of the previous game score sheets and if the ineligible player is signed in on those score sheets, those games will also be subject to forfeiture.

Event Sign-in/Team Rosters

All participants should arrive at the playing field/court at least 10 minutes prior to their scheduled game time. Participants can check in with the on-site intramural supervisor/assistant (scorekeeper). The supervisor will then direct the team to their designated field/court.

Participants should seek out the intramural assistant to check in for their game. The scorecard for that set of games will be located within a binder or on a clipboard, which should be available at the field/court assistant’s table. If the scorecard is not there, the team/participant should locate the intramural supervisor for that playing area. Prior to the beginning of the game, all participants must be completely signed in on the game’s scorecard. This is the official team roster for the contest and will be used in determining a team’s participation. Each individual must be on the roster through before the start of play. In order to be on the roster, players must be added and approved by the team’s captain by 12:00 p.m. (noon) of that day’s game! At every game the participants must have a CSUN Student ID or government issued photo ID (Driver’s License, Passport, etc.) to be able to check in and play. The photo on any form of identification must be a clear photo and match the appearance of the participant presenting the ID.

Special Exception:

If a player’s participation prevents a game from being a forfeit and either does not have their photo ID or their name is not on the roster, a one-time exception can take place. An updated list of all players that have used their exception will be provided to the intramural supervisor prior to the start of the day’s/evening’s games. The player will still have to purchase an Intramural Pass before being allowed to play.

  1. A player cannot be missing their photo ID and not be listed on the team roster. A player that lacks both of these requirements will not be allowed to play under any circumstance.
  2. Once the player has been permitted to play, they will be added to your team for the remainder of the season. If the Intramural Office staff determines the player that played in your game is an illegal player (i.e. plays for another team, not a CSUN student, etc.) that player will be banned from participating in all intramurals for the remainder of the current semester and the team’s game will result in a forfeit.
  3. This exception exists to assist with the prevention of forfeits and to hopefully create a competitive and fair game.
    1. The player(s) that are permitted to play will be no greater than the minimum number of players required to have a fair game (i.e. basketball – if two players are available to join the team but the team has four (4) players, only one of the two available players may play.)
  4. This special exception is only good for regular season play and will not be permitted during the playoffs.

Team rosters become “frozen” on the last day of the regular season play for that sport. Once rosters are frozen, no players can be added to the team’s roster for post-season play. In order to be eligible to participate in the post-season player, a player must fit into one of the two following qualifications:

  1. Member of the original submitted/created roster (this is determined by the time stamp on of when the team was created and the date the player was added to the roster).
  2. Has played in at least one (1) game during the regular season.

If a player does not meet one of the two qualifications, this player will not be allowed to play on the team during the playoffs. Also a player cannot be added to a playoff team roster from another team’s roster within the same league. So if Team A does not make the playoffs, Team B which made the playoffs cannot add a player from Team A’s roster (whether it is their best or worst player).

Activities Schedule

Intramural activities will include, but are not limited to, flag football, ultimate frisbee, soccer, softball, basketball, volleyball, floor hockey, futsal, inner tube water polo, table tennis, and badminton.

Intramural activities that make use of the pool will occur in the REC Pool located at the SRC.
