At Iowa Wesleyan University, Intramural programs provide outlets for students to participate in sporting events unrelated to intercollegiate athletics. Regardless of skill level or competitive nature, intramural provide an opportunity for all students to participate. Intramurals allow students to interact with one another socially in a very different environment than what the classroom or even other co-curricular experiences like clubs/organizations and music have to offer.

Iowa Wesleyan University prides itself on sportsmanship, and so does the Intramural organization. All who participate are expected to perform with a high level of sportsmanship. Players must adhere to these general rules and also the specific rules of the sport they are participating in.

Ways to Get Involved

  • Sign up with a team during sign-up days
  • Show up to one-night events
