Intramural Sports, Pride Recreation Center
Full-time, day undergraduate students on the Main Campus participate in our intramural and club sport programs.
Pride Recreation embodies intramural and informal recreation programs. Intramural sports are offered for men, women, and co-ed divisions. Competition is in the form of leagues, tournaments, and/or special events each semester.
The programs are offered based on student interest and the availability of resources and facilities. Informal recreation is offered to the entire Widener University student body. Students are able to check-out equipment to use during informal recreation hours which are posted throughout the Pride Recreation Center.
Intramurals are offered at Widener University (Main Campus) on six, state-of-the-art, facilities: Pride Recreation Center Media Room, Schwartz Athletic Center, Schwartz Field House, Dixon Field, Memorial Field, and the University Center. All students interested in participating in Intramural sports should make themselves familiar with the Pride Recreation Intramural Handbook.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is eligible?
All full-time, day undergraduate students on the Main Campus are eligible to participate in the Intramural program. Graduate students are only eligible to participate in one/two-day events.
What is the fee for intramurals?
Intramural sports include a forfeit deposit that is relative to the sport being played. If your team does not forfeit, your team will receive the deposit money back. All teams should review the forfeit deposit policy in order to avoid losing their fee(s).
Where/when are games played?
Intramural sports are typically played in the evenings (between 4:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.) on a variety of Widener fields/facilities. Games are played throughout the week, including weekends.
How do I sign up?
Students must sign up on imleagues.com/widener to be eligible for intramural sports. To sign up visit the IMLeagues website and create an account with your Widener e-mail address. If help is needed, please stop by the Pride Recreation Center for instruction.
How many intramural teams can I play on?
Individuals may play on more than one team in the same intramural sport but the teams must be in different divisions (co-ed, men’s, and women’s).
I am a former intercollegiate player; can I still participate in the intramural sports program?
An individual who has completed their intercollegiate eligibility (i.e., the player has not been active on an NCAA roster for a year), or is a rostered varsity athlete will be permitted to play on an intramural team in that sport or a related sport, but they must abide by the specified varsity athlete ratio listed in the handbook. For example, no more than two former or current intercollegiate athletes (no more than a total of two varsity athletes regardless of gender) can be on the same sport roster as their intercollegiate sport.
I am a sport club member; can I still participate in the intramural sports program?
Club sport athletes must follow the same roster ratio as intercollegiate athletes in their corresponding sport. (See previous question above).
