Health, Wellness, Sportsmanship & Fun
Intramural sports promote health, wellness, and a spirit of sportsmanship among the Baker community. However, our most important goal is to have fun.
Intramural sports provide a range of competitive and non-competitive activities that vary from year to year. We typically offer traditional fall, winter and spring sports such as basketball and flag football and also other sports such as corn hole and dodge ball.
Participation is free and open to all students, faculty and staff members. No matter your skill level, if you want to participate you are welcome.
Intramurals offers a variety of employment opportunities for students, including officiating. Officials are paid a per-game rate to be determined by the particular sport and are supplied with a whistle and a stopwatch. Students are not required to qualify for work study in their financial aid to be an official. However, they need to fill out paperwork with the Office of Human Resources, located in the lower level of Constant Hall, before they can receive payment.
Who can participate in Intramurals?
Any student, faculty or staff member with a valid, current Baker University ID are allowed to participate in Baker Intramurals Sports Leagues.
How many teams can I play on?
Sometimes, it depends on the sport. As a general rule, though, you can play on one team in each league, per sport. For instance, you can sign up for a Men A team, a Men B team and a Co-Rec team in the same sport, but not two Men A teams in the same sport.
Does it cost money to play?
No. Intramural sports are free of charge for everyone in the Baker community.
My team did not show up, what happens to us?
If you notified the office 24 hours in advance, then you were awarded a default and it is counted as an automatic loss. If there was no notification, you were awarded a forfeit and after your second forfeit your team is removed from play.
It is raining, are we still playing?
If there are doubts about whether a game is still on, check this page for cancellations. The bulletin boards in Collins Gym and Harter Student Union will also have information. Generally, if a game cannot be played because of inclement weather, it will be rescheduled for another day or moved to another location.
I need to add a player to my roster. Can I do that? How do I do that?
Yes you can. Up until the official start of league play, all rosters can be updated by submitting the changes to intramurals director.
My question was not asked. Can you still help me?
