Intramural Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Eligibility

Who can play intramural sports?

All enrolled, student fee paying CSU Stanislaus undergraduate and graduate students are members of the SRC Student Fitness Center, and are automatically eligible to play Intramural Sports. All CSU Stanislaus faculty, staff, and alumni who have purchased memberships to the SRC Student Fitness Center are eligible to participate in intramural sports.  

Effective January 1, 2015, All CSU faculty, staff and alumni must have memberships to the SRC Student Fitness Center in order to play Intramural Sports. 

Can current CSU Stanislaus varsity athletes participate in intramural sports?

Players for varsity intercollegiate programs are not eligible for intramural participation in any sport that corresponds to the one they competed in. However, they may participate in any sport that is not directly related to their collegiate one. For example, a current CSU Stanislaus basketball player cannot participate in IM Basketball but they may play IM Volleyball.

To be eligible for IM participation in their related sport, collegiate athletes must have not participated with CSU Stanislaus or any other collegiate team for a full semester. For example, if a collegiate soccer player’s final season ended in November, they would not be eligible to participate in Intramural soccer until the following semester starting in the fall.
