Section 2: About Intramurals

Article 1: Program Objectives

The Southern Miss Campus Recreation staff invites you to participate in a fun, action-packed Intramural Sports program. More than 40 activities are offered, featuring team and individual/dual competitions. The goal of Recreational Sports is to be diverse and to offer each student the opportunity to participate, regardless of ability.

Article 2: Participation

The Intramural Sports program is recreational in nature. It attempts to match equally skilled teams and individuals so that all participants can enjoy the opportunity to participate. Intramural Sports are offered so the campus community has the opportunity to recreate and have fun in an organized, structured and safe environment. Team and individual competition will take place in the following divisions: fraternity, men’s independent, sorority, women’s independent or co-recreational.

Article 3: Assumption of Risk Statement

Participants are encouraged to have a physical examination and obtain adequate insurance prior to participation in Campus Recreation activities. Individuals who participate in Campus Recreation activities will be doing so at their own risk. Participation in Campus Recreation activities is voluntary, and The University of Southern Mississippi is not responsible for any injury that may occur to participants. Student health and accident insurance information may be obtained through Student Health Services (601.266.5390).
