Authorized patrons with proper ID; must be 18 or older and out of high school. Authorized patrons: 1. Active duty Marines and Sailors 2. Retirees 3. Family Members of retirees and active duty Marines/Sailors 4. MCCS employees 5. DoD employees
Q: How do teams form for Intramural Sports?
Teams are formed independently by individuals wishing to play a sport, most commonly at the unit level. However, teams can also be comprised of any authorized patrons: DoD civilians, retirees, or any mix of the like. The Sports Office does not regularly form teams for intramural sports; we allow and encourage authorized individuals to form their own teams.
Q: Can I participate on a team if I am not assigned to the unit command it represents?
If a player’s unit is not registering a team in the league or tournament, players may play on a team not directly associated with their respective unit by obtaining a release letter from their unit CO. However, if the player’s unit is registering a team, the player should first contact their unit team for inclusion on the team roster; in the event there is no space available on the unit roster, the player may play with another team by obtaining the release letter from their unit CO. Appropriate release letter samples can be obtained from the responsible Sports Coordinator.
Q: How can I participate in Intramural Sports if I do not have a team?
Individuals interested in playing who do not have a team can contact the responsible Sports Coordinator and request to be placed on a team. However, because most teams register for the league with a full roster, the Sports Office cannot guarantee individual player placements. The Sports Office also cannot guarantee the competitive/recreational nature of the team if a player is placed; players will be placed on a team on a strictly as-available basis. There are some programs, leagues and tournaments where the Sports Office will not be able to place players on teams due to the nature of the competition.
Q: How do I sign up for Intramural Sports?
Teams interested in playing can register at the Sports Office with the responsible Sports Coordinator, prior to or at the coaches’ meeting. All registration paperwork and meeting dates are posted online on the Sports page of the MCCS, Camp Lejeune webpage, and can also be obtained from the responsible Sports Coordinator.
Q: Can my unit enter more than one team into the intramural league?
A unit may enter more than one team if the number of interested players exceeds the allowable maximum number of players for a single team and there are enough players to make multiple teams. However, players may not substitute on the other unit teams; each player may only be listed on one roster and that can only play for that one team.
Q: Who is required to sign the Waiver of Liability/Assumption of Risk Agreement?
Anyone participating in an intramural sport that is not an Active Duty service member, including DoD civilians, dependents, spouses, retirees, etc., is required to sign a Waiver of Liability/Assumption of Risk Agreement prior to their first game. Active Duty members may be required to sign the agreement for certain sports if it is deemed appropriate.
Q: Are all Intramural Sports co-ed?
All leagues and tournaments are co-ed except where stated; for example: Women’s Softball is only open to women who meet the eligibility requirements. While all sports are co-ed in nature, special rules will not be utilized (for example, extra points for a women scoring a touchdown in flag football).
Q: When and where are Intramural games played?
Intramural sports are generally held in the evening or occasionally on weekends in the event of tournaments. Intramural sports are hosted in a variety of outdoor and indoor spaces, including the Goettge Memorial Field House, Area 1 Gym, and the fields located behind the Field House. Other areas and facilities around Camp Lejeune may also be utilized if the nature of the competition or event requires this.
Q: Who is eligible to participate in the leagues and tournaments at Camp Johnson and Courthouse Bay?

Indoor court spaces can be reserved for up to one hour, half-court, at any gym maintained by Semper Fit. Extra or specialized equipment, such as volleyball nets and indoor soccer goals, will not be available or allowed during these reservation times.
Q: I am interested in becoming an official or scorekeeper. What should I do? The Sports Office does not hire or manage the officials or scorekeepers for our leagues and tournaments; these services are contracted and maintained by an outside company. For information about becoming an official or scorekeeper, please contact the Sports Office at 910451-3762.
Q: What is the difference between a league and a tournament?
A league is generally a multi-week or multi-month program with games being played one to four nights per week. Most often, teams involved play a series of games that span the duration of several weeks before the end of the season.
A tournament is generally a one or two day/night event where teams compete to stay in the competition by continually winning their games. Most tournaments are single or double elimination and will be completed in a shorter amount of time than a league. Rarely, a tournament may span three or four nights if scheduling or space do not allow it to be completed in one or two nights.
Q: Is the coach required to attend the Coaches’ Meeting for the respective sport?
Either a coach or representative from the team needs to be present from the team at the mandatory coaches’ meeting; these meetings cover the bylaws, rules, and other pertinent information about the league or tournament.
Q: Do I have to buy my own equipment, gear or uniforms for Intramurals?
The Sports Office will provide any item necessary for the program unless it is a personal item such as shin guards, cleats, softball gloves, etc. The sports office will provide general use items such as balls, bats, safety gear such as helmets, flags for flag football, etc. Items for practice purposes such as bats and balls may or may not be available depending on stock and funding. Uniforms are available for season check-out from the Sports Office upon request, as indicated on the team’s registration packet.
