KanJam Participant Guide

KanJam Sport Rules
Make sure you know the rules for Intramural KanJam. KanJam will consist of two pool play matches, followed by a single elimination tournament for all teams.

Sportsmanship
Sportsmanship is a priority of the Intramural Sports Program at The University of Iowa. More information on Sportsmanship, including the detailed ratings system, can be found in the Intramural Sports Rules and Regulations.

Eligibility
To participate in Intramural KanJam, a UI Student, Faculty, Staff or Affiliate must purchase, or have purchased, an Intramural Sports Semester Membership, an Intramural Sports Year-Long Membership (good through Spring 2019), or a One-Day Tournament Pass. More information on these can be found on our Intramural Sports Membership page. The $25 semester membership allows you to participate in any sport/event this semester, as many times as you'd like, with the exception of the Intramural Golf Tournament. The $15 One-Day Tournament Pass will only allow you to play in the KanJam tournament. There is no cost to register a team, but team members must purchase one of these memberships to join the team. Team captains must make sure that all members of their teams are eligible for participation according to the Intramural Sports Rules and Regulations eligibility requirements.

ID Policy
All participants must check-in with a University or government-issued photo ID in accordance with our ID policy.

Forfeits
Teams that do not show up for any scheduled game during the tournament, or do not have the minimum number of team members present that are required to begin a game, will be charged a Forfeit Fine of $50.00. That fine will be charged to the U-Bill of the team captain. Learn more about our Forfeit Policy.

Defaults
To avoid forfeits, teams may default. Learn more about our Default policy.

Registration, schedules, and roster management all take place through IMLeagues.com. Check out our IMLeagues Registration Instructions for specific instructions on how to register your team, and make sure to pass it along to your teammates so they can join your team roster quickly and easily. Once registration is complete, the schedule will be posted on IMLeagues.com, as well as results as the tournament progresses.

Roster Management
Team rosters must have three players registered to complete registration. Players can be added or dropped following registration, but teams must follow roster addition and removal policies in order to appropriately add or drop players from the team roster.

Free Agents
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.

Game Location​
Games will be played at Hubbard Park near the Iowa Memorial Union.  Alcohol and tobacco are not permitted in the facility, or in the parking lot, nor should alcohol be consumed prior to participation in the event.
