MSU Denver

Being involved with a sports team can be a vital part of staying healthy and is an excellent opportunity for a student to share their passion for sport with others. Campus Recreation’s three sport programs offer different ways to participate.

Club Sports

The Club Sports program provides an opportunity for students to develop their athletic interest with other students who share the same passion. All Club Sport teams are led by students and focus on participation and competition. Club Sports teams are very organized, have elected student-leadership boards, collect membership dues, practice regularly, travel off-campus and compete regionally and nationally to represent the University.

Intramural Sports

The Intramural Sports program offers Campus Recreation members opportunities to participate in traditional sport and esports activities. Teams simply arrive near the start of their game and play on-campus in the gym. Campus Recreation provides game officials and develops the rules, and league play over the course of the semester is offered alongside one-day tournaments and events.

The Spring 2022 schedule is still under review and development as we continue to monitor the pandemic and its impact on the health and safety of our members. 

Open Recreation

The Open Recreation program includes drop-in activities such as basketball, volleyball and indoor soccer in the gym. Open Recreation allows members to play casual pick-up games, or just shoot the basketball around for a few, at various times throughout the week.

Campus Recreation members are welcome to drop-in and participate at no additional cost. Guests may participate by purchasing a $5 day pass. See Memberships page for more details.

Select sports equipment (balls, racquets, volleyball nets, etc.) can be borrowed from the Fitness Center for day-use use in the gym, or from the Outdoor Pursuits office for other purposes.



Basketball: Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays; 2-6 p.m.; West Court, PE117w

Volleyball: Wednesdays; 2-6 p.m.; West Court, PE117w

Special Programs


See participant picks and standings here. Registration has closed as the NFL season has started!

Easy to participate, no football knowledge necessary – simply pick 1-2 winning teams each week!

Here’s how to play:

  • Pick 2 teams that you think will win for that week
    • If both of your teams win/tie, you’ll have two picks for the next week
    • If one of your picks lose, you’ll only have one pick the following week
    • If you pick two losing teams over the course of the season, you are out of that pool*
  • Picks are due by 5 p.m. on Thursdays
    • Feel free to submit Tuesday/Wednesday, but I know people like to wait to get all the facts.
    • Just don’t miss the deadline!
  • NOTE: You can’t pick the same team more than 5 times across the 18 regular season weeks
  • The last person standing with a remaining pick wins!
    • *Consolation pool begins on week 9 and the last person standing there also wins a prize!
