Intramural Sports

Old Dominion University has one of the most active intramural programs in the region, serving more than 6,000 participants each year. Both recreational and competitive leagues are offered for men's, women's, Greek (teams from affiliated fraternities and sororities) co-recreational, and Residence Life (teams from on-campus housing) The mission of the program is to provide exercise, recreation, competition, and fun to all participants and ODU employees in a relaxed, yet structured environment. It is our goal to keep the excitement of competition alive while placing emphasis on having fun, good sportsmanship, and fair play among all teams and individuals which are vital to our program.

Intramural programs consist of individual and team leagues, individual and team tournaments, and special events. Each championship individual or team will receive an intramural championship t-shirt and earn a spot on the "Wall of Champions" located in the Student Recreation Center.

  • No references to drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or violence

  • No sexual references or innuendos

  • No confusing terms such as BYE or canceled, etc.

Teams with an inappropriate team name will be notified and given an opportunity to provide an appropriate name. In the event an appropriate name is not provided the Intramural Staff will create a team name and notify the captain of the change. Teams will not be allowed to compete while wearing team apparel with inappropriate names or pictures.
