Intramural Sports - Frequently Asked Questions

  •  What are Intramural Sports?
    Intramural sports offer Ferris State students, faculty and staff the opportunity to play organized sports in a recreational and competitive atmosphere, learn new sports skills, recreate in a social environment, and have fun with fellow friends and students.
  •  How many hours a week do Intramural Sports take?
    Each team will receive one game per week during league play. These games last one hour. During playoffs, teams may play more than once depending on the tournament bracket.
  •  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, but they are not required
  •  What is the registration fee used for?
    The registration fee helps pay for our officials and allows us to purchase new equipment.
  •  Why does Ferris charge a registration fee? No other schools do!
    Most schools around the state do charge a registration fee, for the same reasons that we do - Michigan State, Western Michigan, Central Michigan and Grand Valley included.
  •  How are officials selected?
    Our officials go through our training program before they begin officiating our sports. They are evaluated by our Rec Assistants and Supervisors, and must meet the set criteria to be allowed to work.
