The Intramural (IM) Sports program offers opportunities for the Western Oregon University community to participate in a variety of team and individual sport leagues. The program is designed in a manner that promotes safety, fairness, and equal 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 Western Oregon University students, faculty, staff and spouses. The objectives of Intramurals are to provide opportunities for individual development through various activities, increase social contacts, growth of lasting friendships and recreation for individuals, regardless of their skill ability.

What is Difference between Intramural Sports, Club Sports & NCAA Athletics?
Intramural (IM) teams are organized by, and comprised of, students, faculty & staff. These teams compete against other WOU IM teams in leagues or tournaments organized by the WOU Campus Recreation Department. IM teams typically do not have coaches or regularly scheduled practices. IMs are a “low key” way to participate in organized sports with friends, roommates and/or classmates.
Under the guidance of the Campus Recreation Department, Club Sports teams are managed and run by the teams’ elected student officers. These officers are responsible for adherence to their league or national organization rules, coach selection, travel planning, fundraising, scheduling practices and purchasing equipment/uniforms. Club Sports bridge the gap between Intramural Sports and Intercollegiate Athletics as they are still primarily student-lead but offer the opportunity to represent WOU in intercollegiate competition and compete for conference, regional and national championships.
WOU’s NCAA Athletic teams adhere to the NCAA Division II guidelines, policies, regulations and are managed by the WOU coaches and Athletic Department Administrators.
