Intramural Captains

Intramural Captains are integral to the success of the Intramural programs. Captains are team leaders, both on and off the court. It’s not for everyone – so be sure to read the following carefully before signing up.

Captains Meetings

A captains meeting for each sport league will be scheduled prior to the first playing date of each semester. All captains are required to attend, or must send a responsible representative in his or her place. Teams who do not attend will not be scheduled to play. All teams, including wait listed teams, are required to attend.

A captains’ meeting is scheduled for Jan. 18, 2018 in the Science Building (Room TBA) at 6:30 p.m. This is mandatory for team captains
