All enrolled students with full-time status and employees of the College are eligible for participation in Intramural activities and events. Significant others and dependants are also eligible to participate. Alumni are not eligible to play unless they are enrolled as a full-time student or are an employee of the College.
The following items are specific regulations concerning eligibility of participants in IM competition:
- Intercollegiate athletes may not compete in the same sport(s) or any related sport(s) during the academic year in which they participated as a varsity athlete. A student shall be deemed a member of an intercollegiate team if they participate as a squad member after the 1st game or dress for the 1st contest. The includes red-shirt athletes.
- Players may participate on only 1 team per sport per season.
- Only players submitted on the official team roster are eligible to participate in the IM games.
- A player may not switch to another team after having played as a member of an original team.
Failure to observe these guidelines will result in the disqualification of the ineligible player from further competition in the sport in which they are found ineligible. Any team which plays with an ineligible player will forfeit all games in which the ineligible person played.
Forfeits are the most damaging occurrence in your intramural program. Enthusiasm and participation quickly diminish after appearing for a contest only to have the opponents fail to show. Your entry form is a contract with the IM Department and other students to the effect that if you say you will play, you will be there for your games.
Teams that forfeit one contest will be dropped from further competition. A one-time re-entry fee of $10.00 may be paid with 24 hours of the scheduled game time if the team wishes to continue play. However, another forfeit anytime during the competitive season thereafter will result in final termination of the team's opportunity to continue play.
Forfeits will be assessed under the following conditions:
- If a team or individual fails to report to the scheduled place within 10 minutes after the scheduled time for a contest. To obtain a contest victory by forfeit, the full lineup must be present and ready to play. If both teams and/or individuals fail to appear, both will be charged with a forfeit.
- In team sports, the team must have at least a minimum of one less than the official number of players ready to play at the scheduled time. Any less in attendance and a forfeit will be assessed.
- If a team is found to be using an ineligible player.
- Not observing the co-ed rule in those league in which it is mandated: at least two members of the under-represented sex must be on the field of play at all times.
A contest resulting in a forfeit will not be rescheduled and will count as two losses in the standings.
In the case of inclement weather, a final decision will be made by 3:00 p.m. by the IM Office. After such time, the captains of the respective teams will be contacted by phone, text, and/or email. Teams should be ready to play unless contacted by the IM department. Postponed games will be replayed if time and facilities are available. In the event that a postponed game cannot be replayed, it will be recorded as a no game and will not count toward the team's overall record.
Students, faculty and staff are reminded that their participation in the IM activities is completely voluntary and neither the College, the Athletics Department nor its staff will assume any responsibility for injuries or personal property damages resulting from participation in IM activities. For students who carry the College-sponsored insurance policy, insurance claims for IM injuries will be handled at the Boettcher Health Center.
Scheduling for league play is generally organized in accordance with a round robin format scheduling each team to play in an equal number of competitions. Final season rankings will be determined by 1) winning percentage, 2) head to head play, 3) number of forfeits, and/or 4) playoff game. At the end of league play, the top teams will advance to a single elimination tournament to determine the overall league champion. The format for this final tournament is generally power seating as opposed to a balanced seating schedule. All members of the winning team will receive IM Champion t-shirts.
Scheduling for tournament play is generally organized in accordance with a traditional double-elimination format.
Teams/individuals may request that a contest be rescheduled. Responsibilities of the team/individual requesting the reschedule include contacting both the IM Department at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled time of competition, and the opponent of the contest to request and obtain consent for postponement. If these guidelines are not met, the game's originally scheduled time will remain in effect. In the event of a postponement by the IM Department, every effort will be made to reschedule the contest.
The IM Department will make the final decisions regarding postponements with regards to inclement weather, conflicts with staffing and facilities, or college activities. Postponed games will be replayed if there is time and facilities are available. In the event that a postponed game can not be replayed, it will be recorded as a no game.
Good sportsmanship is vital to the conduct of every intramural activity. Unsportsmanship behavior is not only a poor reflection on the individual but it also detracts from the enjoyment of the activity for the other participants. Unsportsmanlike behavior will not be tolerated by the IM Department. Penalties for unsportsmanlike behavior will include, but are not limited to, warnings, probation, suspension or expulsion. Teams and individuals who cannot participate without creating problems on the field, ice or court will be removed from the program. During contests, the officials are the representatives of the IM Department. Decisions made by the these individuals must be followed to insure proper order and sportsmanlike play during all activities.
The penalty process for unsportsmanlike behavior will include: a warning immediately following the behavior with suspension from the remainder of the game if the offense, or like behavior, is committed within the same game/event. Any student ejected from a game will be required serve an automatic and mandatory TWO game suspension. A second warning anytime during the rest of that sport season will result in suspension of play from that entire sport season.
Individual(s) will be immediately ejected from a game/event for any flagrant foul or intentional behavior that places participants at risk. Additional disciplinary action will be taken after consultation with the officials and supervisors of that game/event.
