Intramural Sports

The Intramural Program provides Miami students, faculty, and staff structured sporting activities with an emphasis on participation, fun, and safety.

We offer leagues, tournaments, individual and dual events for males, females, and co-recreational teams. Intramurals foster a healthy spirit of competition, sportsmanship, and teamwork while enhancing social interaction.

Intramural activities are voluntary in nature and each participant is given an opportunity to participate in a sport of their choice regardless of physical abilities and skill level.

History of Intramural Sports at Miami

Miami University was one of the first institutions in America to establish a program of intramural sports for students. We strive daily to uphold the beliefs of our founders Margaret Phillips and Thomas P. Van Voorhis by our devotion to a "fun through sports" philosophy as part of an educational community.

The Miami Bound Program takes place before first-year move-in day and is designed to help students adjust to new surroundings and discover the extensive variety of health, sport, and recreation activities at Miami University. Students move in early and activities are tailored to help build community and forge strong friendships prior to the start of the school year.
