The Development Leagues (D-League) offers athletes a heightened level of sport competition, without the time commitment of a Varsity Athletic Program. Athletes have the opportunity to take their game to the next level by learning from committed coaching staff and training for development towards future varsity competition.


Each Development League team will have coaches, practices each week, and home & away games at either UofT St. George and/or Scarborough campus. In addition to league games, our D-League teams will go to OCAA extramural tournaments (against other Ontario Colleges' Intramural teams) and compete in OCAA Varsity tournaments and exhibition games where possible (against Ontario Colleges' Varsity teams).

UTM offers Development Leagues for:

League Format: Each sport league is comprised of four teams. One team from UTM, one team from UTSC, and two teams from St. George Campus. On average, teams will have one practice and one game per week. Full-year leagues (Volleyball, Basketball, Hockey) consist of 9 season games + playoffs. Seasonal leagues (Indoor & Outdoor Soccer) consist of 6 games + playoffs.

Who is eligible?  UTM D-League teams are open to full & part-time UTM students, including Grad Students. Athletes are required to attend tryouts to join.
