This handbook will inform you of the many Intramural sports opportunities that are available at the University. These activities provide students with rewarding and enjoyable competition and recreation in men's, women's and coed sports. This year I plan to offer Soccer, Kickball, Flag-Football, Dodgeball, Basketball, 3-on-3 Basketball, Bowling, Mini-Golf, Deck Hockey and Volleyball intramural sports.
The department also sponsors special sporting events throughout the year. These events include Wii nights, as well as ping-pong and pool tournaments. Facilities are available to students for fitness, aerobics, weight training, and other recreational activities.
I encourage you to participate in the Robert Morris University Intramural program and I look forward to seeing you on the field or court. Please feel free to stop in the Campus Recreation Office, located in the Jefferson Center, for additional information about our program.

Only protests regarding player's eligibility will be considered. A protest must be submitted during the contest or within 24 hours following the contest in question to be considered.
