4-on-4 Flag Football Important Information

  1. To participate in Intramural Sports, a UI Student, Faculty, Staff or Affiliate must purchase an Intramural Sports Membership. This $20.00/semester membership allows you to participate in almost any Intramural sport/event that semester. 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 three players to complete registration. Teams can add players to the roster throughout pool play and playoffs.
  3. To be eligible to play that night, team captains may add players to the roster up until the game’s scheduled start time.
  4. Before each game, all players must be on the roster and present a valid UI or government-issued photo ID to participate.
  5. Teams will consist of four players on the field at a time. Three players must be READY TO PLAY within 10 minutes of a team’s scheduled game time. If this requirement is not met, the game will be forfeit. 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.
  6. Team sportsmanship will be rated by the officials on a scale of 4-to-1, with 4 being excellent and 1 being poor. Teams must maintain an average of 2.5 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.
  7. Playoffs will take place following the one-week regular season. Divisions will consist of three teams, with both pool play games being played in one night, and the single-elimination tournament being played the following week. The top two teams in each division will qualify for the playoffs.
  8. During registration, each team will select the day and time in which it will play its pool play games. Playoff games will be Monday through Thursday, April 23-26. Teams that qualify and continue to advance should expect to play multiple nights that week.
  9. Want to work for Intramural Sports? We work around classes and other conflicts with flexible scheduling, and you can still play Intramural Sports. To find out how to become an official, visit our Becoming an Official webpage!
  10. Want to play but don't have a team? You can join as a Free Agent on IMLeagues.com if you have paid the Intramural Sports Membership Fee, or you can join our Free Agent Group on Facebook to connect with other people looking for more players to form a team. Listing yourself as a Free Agent does not guarantee you will be on a team, although the Intramural Sports Office will help try to facilitate formation of a Free Agent team.
