Have you previously played a sport competitively and wanted to keep playing in that atmosphere? Is there a sport you have never played but always wanted to try? Here at Mines, there are both Club Sports and Intramural activities.
Intramural activities are structured sport leagues and tournaments which are designed specifically for the CSM community. We offer over 40 different events throughout the academic year. The opportunities are a great way to exercise in a fun environment with fellow students, as well as to get away from your studies and relax! Intramural participation has increased 250% since 2004, with 51% of undergraduate students participating in Intramurals last year. Intramurals provided a healthy outlet for 5,900 participants on 1,300 teams competing in 2,050 events in 2011-2012.
To sign up for an Intramural sport, you will need an IMLeagues.com account. When creating your account, you need to use your school email (@mymail.mines.edu). You will be sent an activation email; click the link in the email to login and activate your IMLeagues account. You should be automatically joined to CSM – if you are not, you can search schools by clicking the “Schools” link. Once you are joined to CSM, click the “Colorado School of Mines” link to go to the school’s homepage. The current sports will be displays – click the sport you wish to join. From there, join the league you wish to play in (Men’s, Women’s, etc.) and the division you would like to play in (Mondays 5PM, Tuesdays 5PM, etc.). There are three ways in which you can join the sport. You can create a team (if you are as a team captain) and invite members by searching for their name or email. You can join a team by using the “Create/Join Team” button at the top right of every page. You can also join as a free agent and request to join teams.
The Club Sports Program here at CSM is one of the most advanced in the state. We offer 16 different Club Sports here at Mines, with continual growth in participants and achievements. There were 475 participants last year.
