Intramural Sports

Intramural Sports

The main program goals are simple: Fun, Safe, and Fair. We take great pride in being able to offer the SFA community the opportunity to continue their involvement with sports they have grown up with. Even though we are focused mainly on athletic activities, we do offer events that involve very little athletic ability.

The staff overseeing the Intramural Sports Program has an assortment of experiences with different programs, school sizes, and officiating backgrounds. This program is run on a nightly basis by student site managers as well as officiated by student officials.

Participation in the IMS Program is a privilege, not a right. Sportsmanship is very important to the success of the IMS Program. With improved officiating and more hands on administration, better sportsmanship will be stressed in every facet of the program. A comprehensive overview of the sportsmanship policies is available in the policies and procedures handbook. This policy does include a strict "no cursing" rule, team sportsmanship grades, and spectator policies. We want to create an environment where all participants can have the best experience possible and where Lumberjacks can come together and compete.
