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 four players (Co-Rec: 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 pool play games. This cannot be done until the minimum player requirement for the team has been met. 
  4. Before each night of play, all players must present a valid UI or government-issued photo ID to participate.
  5. Games are self-officiated. The Intramural Sports staff will not officiate games or solve in-game conflicts. All participants are expected to know the rules, which can be found by clicking the "Rules" link at the top of this page.
  6. Teams may add players to their team up until scheduled match time.
  7. Teams must be present and ready to play within 10 minutes of a game’s scheduled start time. If this requirement is not met, it will result in a forfeit.
  8. Each team will be in a division of four teams (pending registration numbers) and will play the other three teams in that division all in one night. The top two teams in each four team division will qualify for the playoffs and will be 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.
  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. 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.
  11. 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.
