  • Intramurals
    • How do I sign up?
      Using the link intramurals.calbaptist.edu, create an account using your Student ID number and Lancermail password. Then select Intramurals at the top left of the page. Next scroll down and select the league you would like to join. Finally, there are three options for most leagues, create a team, join a team, or sign up as a free agent.

    • How much does it cost?
      Intramurals are included in your student services fee. There is no additional charge. The only money involved is a $10-$20 forfeit deposit from the captain at the beginning of a season (only seasons that require referees).

    • How do I participate if I don’t have a team?
      There are a few options:
      • You can sign up as a free agent. This means that you will be placed on a team that is willing to accept free agents, you can create a bio for yourself.
      • You could request to join teams that are already created.

    We recommend doing BOTH! If you request specific teams, captains may be slow in responding, but if you sign up as a free agent, we can assist you in connecting with a team!

    • What is offered each semester?
      We have several sports each semester and an ever-changing variety. The best way to see what we have is to check IMLeagues.

    • Who can play?
      Traditional undergraduate students enrolled in 6+ units, graduate students, and OPS students.

    Current athletes are only allowed to participate in virtual programs. Students formerly on a collegiate roster are ineligible to participate in the respective sport 2 years after being on a roster (i.e., collegiate volleyball players cannot play recreational volleyball, until 2 years after being on the roster), but are encouraged to participate in other recreational sports activities.

    Students who have undergone the NCAA eligibility process through the CBU Athletics Department and been named on a roster are considered a member of a collegiate team.

    No staff or faculty.

    • Can I switch teams?
      You can switch teams until registration ends. After that you will need to contact mkavern@calbaptist.edu

    • What do I need to participate?
      Equipment needed to play will always be provided by the Intramural staff. For some sports we require equipment such as mouth guards or shin guards. In this case, if you do not have your own, we offer the equipment for purchase at a significantly discounted price on the field.

    • What are sportsmanship points?
      Sportsmanship points are a factor in determining standings for playoffs. Each game, a team starts off with 5 points, if they use foul language, unnecessary roughness, unsportsmanlike conduct the referee or Intramural staff can take away points.

    A common misconception is that a team only has 5 sportsmanship points for the whole season and when they run out, they cannot play or play in playoffs. This is FALSE. Your team’s sportsmanship rating is based off of the AVERAGE amount of sportsmanship points throughout the season, meaning if you lose more points your average will go down.

    • What is the difference between competitive and recreational leagues?
      Rec league is designed for teams that would like to play for fun. Good for people that have not played the sport before or have limited experience playing.

    Competitive league is designed for teams that would like to play at a competitive level with other teams consisting of players who have played at the high school and/or club level.

    • Where can I find my team’s game schedules and times?
      After sign ups have closed the Intramural Staff will build the season or tournament schedule. You will receive an email when the schedule is ready, then login to IMLeagues. On IMLeagues, go to your team’s page and scroll down, there you will see all the days and times your team plays.

      Still have questions, please contact the Senior Intramural Coordinator at mkavern@calbaptist.edu
