What is the Difference between Intramural Sports, Club Sports, and NCAA Athletics?
Intramural (IM) teams are organized by, and comprised of, students, faculty, and staff. These teams compete against other EKU IM teams in leagues or tournaments organized by the EKU Campus Recreation Department. IM teams typically do not have coaches or regularly scheduled practices. IMs are a fun way to participate in organized sports with friends, roommates and/or classmates throughout the year.
Under the guidance of the Campus Recreation Department, Club Sports teams are managed and run by the teams’ elected student officers. These officers are responsible for adherence to their league or national organization rules, coach selection, travel planning, fundraising, scheduling practices and purchasing equipment/uniforms. Club Sports bridge the gap between Intramural Sports and Intercollegiate Athletics as they are still primarily student-lead but offer the opportunity to represent EKU in intercollegiate competition and compete for conference, regional and national championships.
EKU’s NCAA Athletic teams adhere to the NCAA Division I guidelines, policies, regulations and are managed by the EKU coaches and Athletic Department Administrators.
