Here's a plain-English breakdown of our various leagues and divisions. See which one best fits your team's skill and interest level. Women's and sorority leagues have a single division each. Fraternity teams have predetermined garnet & gold divisions.
Men's Competitive Division
The Competitive Division ranges from our advanced skill level teams to those intermediate skill level teams with a mix of very talented and moderately talented players. These leagues and tournaments are highly competitive. Teams advance to the All-Campus Championship Playoffs, meeting the Fraternity League champion in the All-Campus Championship final*.
Men's Recreational Division
The Recreational Division is for those intermediate skill level teams with more moderately talented players and those teams interested in having a good time and not interested (so much) in actually winning. Teams are more interested in playing the game and perhaps winning a few than challenging for an all-campus title. Teams advance to a separate playoff tournament*.
Designed for our talented, experienced teams as well as some intermediate skill level teams with a range of talented and less talented players. These leagues and tournaments are typically highly competitive. Teams advance to the All-Campus Championship playoffs.
Designed for our new teams and those intermediate skill level teams who are more interested in playing the game. Leagues and tournaments remain competitive. Teams advance to a separate playoff tournament.
Promotions & Demotions
The Intramural Sports office reserves the right to promote or demote teams among divisions, without consent as necessary, to enhance the competitiveness of the division and/or the enjoyment of the other teams in the division.
*Depending on the sport and number of teams in a given league, the Intramural Sports office may split divisions in half based on overall record. Those teams in the Competitive Garnet (top half) bracket will complete for the chance to play against the Fraternity champion for the All-Campus Championship. Those in the Competitive Gold (bottom half) bracket will compete in the separate tournament and crown their own champion. Recreational Divisions may also be split into Garnet (top half) and Gold (bottom half) brackets to insure a fair and balanced playoff experience for all teams.
All teams with a 3.0 or higher sportsmanship average and no outstanding forfeits advance to the postseason playoffs. Teams are assigned a postseason playoff division based on three factors:
(1) Regular Season Division: Teams receive base standings points (details) based on the division in which they play during the regular season.
(2) Win-Loss Percentage: Teams receive additional points based on their winning percentage at the time of the playoff draw meeting or scheduling.
(3) Big Wins or Big Losses: Teams receive bonus points for big wins and a deduction for big losses; the "big" margin varies by sport (details).

Playoff Selection Order
Selection order at the playoff draw meeting is determined by sportsmanship rating (highest to lowest average) with regular season record (best to worst) serving as tiebreaker.
