The Granite League teams are actively trying to compete and win. Teams in this league tend to be more competitive in nature.
The Moosiluake League is intended for teams that are typically not as experienced or more beginner teams. Teams in this league are looking for more of a recreational environment.

Intramural contests are played at a variety of locations. Typically our outdoor sports will be played at the Garipay Fields and indoor sports will be played at either West Gym (in Alumni Gym) or Thompson Arena (ice rink).

Yes! If you do not have enough players to make a team, you can sign up on imleagues.com/dartmouth has a free agent. You will then be able to message captains about joining their team.
What if I am not on the roster for my game?
There are several reasons why you may not appear on the printed roster. They can range from not having a valid membership to not fully completing the online quiz to your captain not accepting you're quest to join the team. If you are not on the roster on IMLeagues.com, you will not be able to participate in that day's game, however, see the on-site Intramural Supervisor for assistance in trouble-shooting the registration process so you can play in the next game.
What types of leagues do you offer?
We offer several different types of leagues. We offer Co-Rec leagues which are comprised of both men and women and have rules pertaining to the ratio of men and women on the playing surface at all times. The Granite League is the most competitive league, followed by Moosilauke and in some cases the Green League. The Green League is for those with no experience whatsoever in the sport–also known as the Rookie League. We also offer Men's and Women's leagues. Women are able to compete in the Men's league.
What if my team is on the waitlist?
Upon initial registration your team will automatically be placed on the waitlist until your roster reaches the minimum number of participants.
If your team remains on the waitlist, keep checking back. There is a chance that we will open more available spaces depending upon how many teams are on the waitlist and if we still have time and space available.
Do I have to bring my own jersey and equipment?
We will have pinnies on-site for teams as needed. However, if your team would like to purchase or make your ownjerseys, that is fine too! They must be sport appropriate and non-offensive.
Any person wearing clothing deemed to be in violation of Dartmouth College community policy will be asked to change. We do provide most equipment, but not all. Please see the sport specific rules for more information.
How does the Team Sportsmanship Rating (TSR) work?
After each team sport games, officials will assign a sportsmanship rating to each team. Ratings are 0-3 with three (3) being given for exemplary conduct. The ratings will be averaged over the course of the regular season games and playoffs. Teams must have an average score of 2.0 to be playoff eligible and remain eligible during playoffs. Teams dropping below 2.0 in the playoffs will be eliminated from the tournament.
What if my team or I can't make it to our/my game?
If an individual player can't make it to a specific game, it's okay. Individuals just need to check into in one (1) regular season game in order to be eligible for the playoffs. If a team can't make a regular season game and they know twenty-four (24) hours before their game, they can email Intramural.Sports@Dartmouth.edu with their team name and division and they will receive a default meaning they will receive zero (0) points in the standings because it allows us time to attempt to find another team to play in that game. If a team can't make a regular season game and just don't show up to the field/court/rink, they will receive a forfeit and lose two (2) points in the standings.
When can players be added to the roster?
Players can be added to the roster up until the last regular season game. At the conclusion of the game, your roster will be locked and no new additions will be permitted for the playoffs.
My game got cancelled due to inclement weather. Will it be made up?
It is extremely difficult to reschedule games based on facility/field availability, opponent availability, and time constraints.
The Intramural Staff will attempt to reschedule games when teams are playing multiple sports, academic conflicts or religious concerns, but it is not guaranteed. If you have additional questions about the above topics or any other intramural topic, please email us at Intramural.Sports@Dartmouth.edu.
