Intramural Sports Frequently Asked Questions
- What is the difference between A, Coed, B, & Open league types?
A leagues are for those that truly want to win. Emphasis is heavy on the competition side of the intramural game. Coed leagues have teams that are made up of males and females and generally include an equal number of each playing on the field at the same time (see league rules for further explanation). B leagues are for those looking to get out and play their favorite sports. Open leagues impose no gender restrictions and like B leagues emphasize fun before competition.
