Intramural Sports - SUNY Cortland

Intramural Sports

There are four different types of offerings in the Intramural Sports Program: Intramural Leagues, One Day Events/Tournaments, Special Events, and Online Events.

Intramural Leagues
generally run for about 5 weeks of round-robin play, followed by a single elimination tournament. Any team that does not forfeit out of the league makes it to playoffs. Teams may have 1-2 games a week, based on the team availability. Most of these activities are offered at two levels: (1) All-School (highly competitive) and (2) Recreational (just for fun). Championship t-shirts are awarded to the overall winners in both divisions.

One Day Events/Tournaments
are designed for someone who wants to participate, but maybe cannot commit to an intramural league. Many of these activities are offered at two levels, and championship t-shirts are awarded to the overall winners in both divisions. 

The Special Events Program is offered as a direct alternative to drinking/partying. We offer several of these events late at night on the weekends throughout the school year. The tournaments generally begin at 8 p.m. and conclude at approximately 2 a.m., with free food and drinks provided throughout the evening. Championship t-shirts are also awarded to the tournament champions.

Online Events
offer students the opportunity to participate in contests and games that are run through third-party websites, such as Students, faculty, and staff may join special groups to compete for t-shirts.
