INTRAMURALS | One shining moment

The adrenaline rush. The feel of victory. Intramural sports at Baker give students all of that, plus they promote health, wellness, and a spirit of sportsmanship among the campus community. Most of all, intramurals are fun, with different sports all year-round.

With a range of competitive and noncompetitive activities happening all year, our intramurals include traditional fall, winter, and spring sports such as basketball and flag football and also other sports such as dodgeball and cornhole.

Participation is free and open to all students, faculty, and staff members. Everyone is welcome, whether they are a first-string forward or an armchair quarterback.

Make Money by Refereeing

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.

Apply online by noon August 28.

BAKER EXPERIENCE

“Each year I look forward to participating in all the intramural sports that I can. I always have so much fun with it because it’s just a little bit of time to get away from school and goof around with my friends while getting some exercise. Anybody is welcome, and it’s also a great time to socialize with other students I might not be able to see every day. I think it’s awesome that Baker offers such a relaxed but very fun program for the student body!”
JAIMIE | Class of 2017

Have a question?

Who can participate in intramurals?

Any student, faculty, or staff member with a valid, current Baker University ID are allowed to participate in Baker intramural 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.

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.

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.

My question was not asked. Can you still help me?
Yes, contact the intramurals director at 785.594.8304 or randy.flowers@bakerU.edu and ask.
