How to Register for Softball:

Online Captain's Quiz

    • A Captain’s Guide is available via the Recreational Services Intramural Sports website. It is encouraged to use this resource while taking the quiz.
    • Captains may take the quiz as many times as is necessary to receive a passing score; however, at no point during the quiz can a captain go back to change a submitted answer—make sure all answers are reviewed carefully before they are submitted.
