The Intramural Director may at his/her discretion postpone events. Postponed contests will,when possible, be rescheduled. A scheduled contest may be postponed by the contestants for special reasons, if the request is made at least 24 hours in advance of the contest and there is unanimous agreement between both team captains and the Intramural Director. All postponements of this nature must be rescheduled and played within the time framework of the original tournament or league schedule.
All protests must be filed immediately after the incident. Only rule misinterpretations can be protested during the course of the game. Eligibility protests must be made prior to the start of a contest.
In order to encourage proper conduct during games, officials, supervisors, and administrative personnel shall make decisions on whether to warn, penalize, or eject players or teams for poor sportsmanship.These decisions are final. The following are considered to be evidence of poor sportsmanship: Profanity, striking or shoving an opponent or official, arguing with officials concerning judgement calls, derogatory and abusive remarks, any action with intent to physically harm another, any action which shows disregard for the rules or policies of the Intramural Department, unnecessary delay of game, participating under a false name, or any other violations of the Student Code of Conduct. The Intramural Director reserves the right to give official warning to participants against improper behavior or to suspend them from participation.
Students serving as officials, scorers, timers, and supervisors provide a valuable service. Remember that without them, there would be no program. Under no circumstances should these students be verbally abused or physically threatened. Persons involved in such actions will be suspended from further play and subject to additional disciplinary action.
Fighting, intentional injury or roughing. If a player is ejected from a game, they are subject to a disciplinary action from the IM Director before they can participate in any intramural activity.
For all regular IM co-ed team sports, round robin, single elimination, or
double elimination tournament(s) will be held near the end of the semester to
determine the champions.
The most significant awards for active participation and success in the Intramural Sports Programs are not material. However, to provide participants with a tangible remembrance, specially designed awards are given to the individual, or team champions in each intramural sport. Awards to be presented in the various tournaments may include t-shirts or other awards offered by the department.
