What if I’m eligible for membership but do not have a membership, can I still play an IM Sport?
- For individuals who are eligible for URecFit membership at the SMC Campus Center but do not have one, an IM Sports Pass is available for purchase for each league sport. The pass is required in addition to the sport entry fee. With the IM Pass, you will gain access to the SMC Campus Center during game times.
