What are Intramural Sports?

Intramural Sports are sports leagues (flag football, soccer, basketball, etc.) organized by the NOVA Intramural Department. Each league will have teams made up of students, faculty, & staff from only the NOVA Community. Each team is given a schedule of teams to play and standings will be kept as teams compete for the right to call themselves Intramural Champions.


Do Intramurals Sports cost money to play?

Not usually!!! Intramural Sports are free in most instances. Ocasionally, there may be a nominal fee for off campus activities such as golf or bowling.  We always try to keep any costs to students low.


Who can participate in intramurals at NOVA?

Any current NOVA student, faculty, & staff are welcome to participate. You must bring your NOVA ID with you to each game to be eligible to play.


How do I register a team?

See Intramurals Sports Sign Up instructions link


I have created and account on the IMleagues website but when I search for NOVA the site tells me it's private. What do I do?

You must use your school e-mail address to create an account with IMleagues.. If you created an account with your Facebook information but your Facebook account doesn't use your school e-mail then when you try to join NOVA the site will tell you that you can't because it is private. This is because only NOVA students, faculty, and staff are allowed to participate. It is not public because then we would not be able to tell if participants are current NOVA students, faculty, or staff.


What do I do if I don't know enough people to register a team?

Once you have created an account or used your Facebook log in to get an account with IMleagues you can register for an Intramural Sport as a free agent and wait for a team who needs another player to pick you up. Once you know what team you are on you can look at their schedule on IMleagues. If a team does not pick you up you will be assigned to a team.


Can I register for an Intramural Sport at a different campus than the campus I attend/teach classes?

Yes, any current NOVA student, faculty, or staff can register for any Intramural Sport regardless of what campus you attend classes or work at.
