Frequently Asked Questions

What are Intramural Sports?

Intramural sports are athletic competitions held among students, faculty and staff from the same university. The intramural program offers structured activities in various team and individual sports. Intramurals are aimed at providing all students, faculty and staff with an opportunity to participate, regardless of their skill level.

How many hours a week do Intramural Sports take?

Generally, you will play about 2 games per week for about 4 weeks.

Do we have to practice?

Most teams do not practice - they just get together and play the scheduled games. You are free to practice if you wish, however!

What does the registration fee go towards?

The registration fee pays our officials and allows us to buy equipment for our sports.

Why does Ferris charge a registration fee? No other schools do!

Most all schools around the state do charge a registration fee, for the same reasons that we do - Michigan State, Western Michigan, and Grand Valley included.

What happens if we don't get our captain's response in on time or go to a captain's meeting?

If you do not turn in your captain's quizzes (the captains' response) on time, your team may be removed from the league or tournament you entered. If you don't have a representative at a captain's meeting (if the tournament or league requires it), you also may be removed from the tournament or league you entered.

How do you choose officials?

Our referees and umpires go through a rules meeting and a training process. They are evaluated on different criteria by our head supervisors, and those with the highest scores are chosen to be officials for that season.
