Duty of Intramural Captain
Captains are responsible for the team registration, turning in registration fee and attending the captain’s meeting. The captain is also responsible to ensure that all team members are eligible and knowledgeable of all Intramural game rules and policies.
Schedules will be given at the Captain’s meeting. NO teams will be added after the Captains Meeting. We try to schedule games and be as accommodating as possible, but due to the size and limited facility space, not all requests will be granted.
NO Games will be rescheduled due to inclement weather. Both teams will be awarded with a win.
It’s Raining or Snowing? Are we still playing?
Inclement weather cancellations will be decided NO earlier than 4pm on game day. It is the duty of the team captain to call the Recreation Programs office 535-2959. If the answering machine says games are cancelled, then there will be no games played that night. Team captains must then call their team to inform them of the cancellation. If the machine doesn’t say games are cancelled the regular schedule will be played.
NOTE: All sporting events held indoors will NOT be cancelled even if school has been closed.
Forfeits & Defaults
To better serve the majority of Teams that arrive before game time, the following policies have been adjusted.
- Game Time is Forfeit/Default: If your team doesn’t have the minimum number of players at the scheduled game time, the game will be a forfeit. The team that was on time will be awarded with a win. If the team shows up late, we will still play the game for fun and it will not count.
- Forfeit: Less than 50% of the league minimum (varies by sport) of participants show up. Example: The Softball League Minimum is 8 players and you only have 3 at the start of the game. After one forfeit your team will have to pay a $1.00 to become part of the league again. This fee must be paid by noon the day of your next scheduled game. Ex. If you had a forfeit on Monday and your next game is Wednesday, the fee must be turned in to the IM Sport Office by Noon of that Wednesday. If your team has another forfeit, your team will be eliminated from that league.
- Default: When a team has more than 50% of the league minimum. After 2 defaults the team will be eliminated from the league.
- NOTE: If a team knows that they are unable to make a game they can notify the Recreation Programs office by noon of the day to cancel the game with no penalty. This may only be done once per league.
Leagues allow the IM participants to play in a formal league in the sport of there choice. We have different leagues for each sport. Most sports will have a competitive and recreational league. Leagues will be played two nights a week or once a weekend. All teams will make the playoffs except those that have forfeits and or have been ejected. Winners of all division win an awesome IM Champion Shirt.
We offer random tournamnets through out the school year. Tournaments may be completed in one day or a week long tournament. Tournaments may have different divisions and each tournament winner will receive an IM Champion Shirt.
Suspension & Ejections
If an IM participant starts to act in an inappropriate and disorderly towards IM officials, scorekeepers, supervisors or other IM participants, they will be asked to leave the playing area immediately. Foul language and poor attitudes/behavior will NOT BE TOLERATED. If ejected from a game, the player ejected must meet with the Assistant Director for Recreation Programs to discuss the players future as an intramural participant. If fighting break outs during an IM event, the persons involved will be turned over to the University’s Judicial Officers.
