Important Information

  1. To participate in Intramural Sports, a UI Student, Faculty, Staff or Affiliate must purchase an Intramural Sports Membership. Information on how to purchase a membership can be found here. 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. A team must have at least two males and two females on the roster to complete registration.
  3. During registration, the team captain picks a division, which determines the day of the week and the time at which your team will play its regular season games. This cannot be done until the minimum player requirement for the team has been met.
  4. To play in that contest, team captains may add players to the roster until the match’s scheduled start time.
  5. Before participating, all players must present a valid UI or government-issued photo ID to participate.
  6. Each team will be in a division of four teams (pending registration numbers) and will play the other three teams in that division (one of them twice), in a 2-week period. All teams will be seeded and placed in a single-elimination playoff bracket for their night of play. Each night's playoff champion will advance to play against the champion teams of the other nights to determine the overall champion.
  7. Teams may participate with a maximum of three males and three females on the court, but must have at least two males and two females present to begin the match.
  8. The ball must always be returned over the net by the third contact, unless a block is the initial contact in which case the ball must be returned by the fourth contact.
  9. 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.
  10. Matches will be self-officiated. All participants are expected to know the rules, which can be found by clicking the "Rules" link at the top of this page.
  11. Teams can compete in the year-long Intramural Sports Points Championship presented by Coach's Corner for a chance to win awesome prizes. For details on the Intramural Sports Points Championship presented by Coach's Corner, click here.
  12. Each competing organization is allowed only one team entry to accumulate points in the Intramural Sports Points Championship presented by Coach's Corner, but there is no maximum on the amount of teams that can register for an organization. The top finishing team for each organization will be counted towards the point total. Teams must designate their organization affiliations before the event begins.
