Ryerson Intramurals is a community where everyone is welcome to participate, meet new friends and have fun.

Ryerson Intramurals builds friendships, promotes active wellness and celebrates diversity through fun play and competition.  We embrace and champion the whole person in every participant.

Whether you are new to Ryerson, to Intramural Sports and Social Leagues, or are a veteran player looking forward to another season, we are excited that you have found us online, and encourage you to take a look at what we have to offer this year.  

Being physically active and having social connections on campus has been proven to positively impact academic performance.  Moving your body and staying connected with peers is not just “taking a break” from studying: it is an integral part of being at the top of your academic game.  Playing Intramural sports with us is a great way to have fun and connect with other students, and to reap the academic benefits of doing so.

Our team of staff have been hard at work on a revitalization plan for Intramurals at Ryerson, figuring out how to engage a wider cross section of students and to create an environment and offerings where all Ryerson students can find activities and communities that they find compelling and enjoyable. 

Our first priority is the health and safety of the Ryerson community.  Due to the ongoing risk of COVID-19 in Toronto, some of our newly planned programs and activities will have to wait to be introduced at a later date, when they can be enjoyed safely.  While we are not currently able to offer the variety of in-person activities originally envisioned, we have been hard at work finding ways for you to be active and to connect with each other in physically distanced and virtual ways.  

For details on our new virtual offerings, and instructions on how you can get involved, please navigate to our IMLeagues page by clicking HERE., external link

We look forward to helping you stay active and connected, and hope to be able to meet you in person soon.
