Intramural Sports


Tackle a new sport or get better at one you already enjoy with Army Intramural Sports programs. We encourage participation by units and provide instruction, practice and competition opportunities for all skill levels.  

When you participate in an intramural sport, you develop your teamwork skills and competitive spirit. At the same time, you’re maintaining your physical fitness and your unit’s readiness.  The Garrison Intramural Sports Program offers broad-based team and individual sports based on Soldier interest, installation Senior and Mission Commander desires, availability of garrison sport facilities, unit mission requirements and local climate. Unit level Intramural leagues emphasize sports that promote group participation with a wide appeal; such as softball, volleyball, flag football, basketball, kickball, dodgeball, and soccer. The Garrison Intramural Sports Program is conducted year-round.

Tired of signing in? Just swipe your ID card.

Don’t worry because things are changing! Gone are the days signing in with a pen and paper at Family and MWR physical fitness centers, as we’re implementing modern strategies into facility usage. 

Patrons will only need to place their ID cards into a reader, upon entering the facility, wait for a beep and head on to their workout with the Rec Trac System.

The tracking of physical fitness center patrons is not the only purpose that Rec Trac serves. The system allows Family and MWR managers to track not only when customers are using the facilities and services, but the frequency of visits, the demographics of who is visiting when and more, allowing facility managers to decide on staffing needs. The system also integrates financial data into the mix, tracking receipts and inventory, giving managers one more tool to leverage to make the best decisions for the facility.
