Sigma Delta Psi in Intramurals


Sigma Delta Psi is a year-long event within intramurals to support students working toward induction into The Citadel chapter. Events require superior individual athletic skill and/or physical fitness. For BOV Trophy purposes, Sigma Delta Psi is a Tier 5 event.

Sigma Delta Psi is an honorary athletic fraternity that promotes the total fitness of male college students with an emphasis on physical fitness. The Citadel became a charter member on February 1, 1960, as the Epsilon Beta chapter. Students have from matriculation until graduation to achieve passing marks in the Sigma Delta Psi events and earn a place in the Citadel's Sigma Delta Psi Fraternity.


All currently enrolled male students may participate.


Students may test through a Required Physical Education Course (RPED 140), Intramural Athletics, or under supervision of any Health and Human Performance faculty member or Sigma Delta Psi member.


Each cadet’s points for Sigma Delta Psi are capped at 35 points per year. Event marks must be 90% or better than the standard to earn participation points during the academic year of the attempt. The final deadline to attempt events for intramural points in the current academic year is 1800 on the last day of class. Attempts will be reported to the Director of Intramurals using the Sigma Delta Psi testing form.
