Intramural Program Structure
Open recreation occurs when there are no scheduled programs in the gymnasium (field house). Participants may bring their own equipment or check-out select equipment using their Harper ID at the welcome desk. Full-court play is first come-first served. High volume may require courts to be shared to accommodate more participants. Activities outside of basketball and volleyball require the use of approved indoor balls or other equipment, and are permitted only under the supervision of a Harper Coach, scheduled Campus Recreation or Palatine Park District program, or other approved entity. Campus Recreation staff reserve the right to ask patrons to move to half-court play at any time. Check with Campus Recreation staff or visit our Live Calendar for full court availability.
Single Day Events:
Single day events will be scheduled throughout the fall, spring, and summer semesters. These events are intended to provide organized, competitive play for participants. There are two types of single day events: drop in and tournaments.
Drop In events do not require prior registration to participate. Participants interested in drop in events should check in at the welcome desk and go to the designated location for the activity. Attendance may vary and game play will adapt based off the number of participants.
Tournaments are scheduled in advance and may require prior registration to participate. Tournaments are programmed so participants can play in a more competitive setting for multiple contests/events. Single day tournaments may require extended availability of the participant. Attendance may vary and game play will adapt based off the number of participants.
Leagues are scheduled in advanced and require registration prior to participate. Leagues are programmed so participants can play in a more competitive setting for multiple contests/events. Typically, games will be schedule for a certain time and day once or twice a week over 2-8 weeks depending on the number of participants/teams.
