There is no cost to register a team, but team members must purchase the Intramural Sports Membership before joining/creating a team.
  2. There is no limit to the size of a team’s roster, however, a team must have five players (at least two males and two females) to complete registration. To play that night, teams may add players to the roster up until the scheduled game time. Teams can add players to the roster until the quarterfinal round of the playoffs.
  3. Teams without same-colored shirts will wear clean, black or gold pinnies for matches.
  4. Before each match, all players must present a valid UI or government-issued photo ID to participate.

Co-Rec B is for less experienced/more social soccer players. The team that wins the Co-Rec B playoff tournament will not receive Intramural Champion T-shirts.
  6. Mercy rule: If a team is ahead by eight goals or more at any point during the last 10 minutes of the second half, the match shall end.
  7. Team sportsmanship will be rated by the officials on a scale of 1-to-4, with 4 being excellent and 1 being poor. Teams must maintain an average of a 2.5 rating or better throughout the season to qualify for the playoffs and to remain in the league. A more detailed breakdown of the sportsmanship scale can be found in the Intramural Sports Rules and Regulations.
  8. Any forfeit/no-show will result in a Forfeit Fine of $50.00. This fine is charged to the University Bill of the team captain.
