Join a league. Play a sport. Have fun with old friends. Make some new ones. Our leagues promote teamwork, respect on the gym floor and a good time!

Leagues are open to current MacEwan University students and alumni, MacEwan University employees, Sport and Wellness members and the general public. All league play takes place in our city centre gymnasium. Leagues are 🏆 Campus Cup eligible.

Registration Information

Registration Types:

Full Team - a group of people looking to play that have enough people to make a full team. A captain is selected among the group of people and thus builds their own roster and decides how many players they want to have on their roster. Recreation staff do not add any other players to this team's roster. Each person on the team is required to fill out their own registration form and make their own payment.

Free Agent - someone looking to play but does not have enough players to make a full team. These players can request to play with another person on the registration form! Recreation staff manage the size and composition of this team's roster and will always attempt to build ideal team rosters with an adequate number of people. However, teams could include more or less players than the ideal roster size, depending on the total registrations received in that particular sport or division.

Fees Include:

  • Gymnasium access

  • 7 weeks of league play (regular season and finals)

  • Equipment

  • Fully-staffed games

Defaults and Forfeits

What is a Forfeit?

  • The result of a team providing appropriate notice that they will be unable to meet the minimum participant or gender requirements for their league.

  • For weekday leagues, before noon (12 pm) on the day of the event is considered appropriate notice.

  • For weekend leagues, before noon (12 pm) on the Friday prior is considered appropriate notice.

What Happens When a Team Forfeits?

  • The team receives a 2 out of 3 spirit rating from Rec staff.

  • The opposing team is contacted in advance to be made aware of the situation.

  • Two forfeits = 1 default.

What is a Default?

  • A default occurs when, at the scheduled game start time, a team has fewer than the minimum amount of required players and did not contact the office prior to the game.

  • If a team chooses to leave early and quit the game for any reason, including a lack of players, the team will default.

What Happens When a Team Defaults?

  • The team receives a 1 out of 3 spirit rating from Rec staff.

  • If a team defaults twice in one season they can be removed from the league without a refund.

  • The team is no longer eligible to receive t-shirts.


  • Join our MacEwan University Recreation – Leagues Facebook group to become a sub.

  • Subs are welcome to join our leagues at any point in the season.

  • A sub is considered to be any player who is joining a team for 1 game during the regular season.

  • Since a sub is assisting a team for only 1 game, we do not charge a league fee to these players.

  • If subs are not a full-time MacEwan University student, they will have to pay the regular facility drop-in rate of $10 in order to get into the gymnasium.

  • If a sub wishes to join a team for more than 1 game, they are no longer considered a sub, they are considered a Replacement Player. These players will pay a pro-rated league fee (the amount will depend on what week they join the team).

  • Since league fees include facility access, a Replacement Player does not have to pay an additional facility drop-in fee.

  • All subs and/or Replacement Players need to complete a registration form prior to playing! Click here to fill out your form.
