Definitions

  • "Experienced Athletes" may compete in the sport where they are "experienced" as stipulated in the rules for that activity. The term "experienced" refers to current intercollegiate athletes (ICA), club athletes (Club), and professional (Pro) athletes. The term "experienced" will expire June 30 of the current academic year. At this point, they are no longer considered "experienced" if they choose to no longer be on an ICA, Club or Pro team.
  • The term "current intercollegiate athlete" refers to any player who is on the coaches' list of an intercollegiate team at the time of the first intramural game or first intercollegiate contest in the current academic year (including athletes who are red-shirting).
  • The term "club athlete" refers to any individual who is currently on a competitive sport club roster at a four-year institution.
  • The term "professional" refers to any individual who is currently on the roster of a professional or semi-professional team.
  • The "experienced" term only refers to an athlete in their like sport. (e.g. ICA Basketball player is considered an "experienced" player for IM Basketball but not for IM Soccer.)

Note: Once a participant appears on a Sport Club or ICA roster they immediately become an experienced player for that like sport for the entire academic year (Fall, Winter, Spring)

Participation Rules:

  1. In team sports, teams registered in a single gender league may use players of a different gender. However, should the player(s) of a different gender create disparity in the level of competition, the IM Office reserves the right to review each case individually and rule accordingly.
  2. In individual and dual sports where single gender leagues are offered, individuals may compete in the league designated for the different gender until such time that the competitiveness of the activity is adversely affected.
  3. All CoRec team and dual sports must have an equal number of genders unless specified otherwise in the rules of the sport concerned. Exception: If the number of players on a CoRec team is less than the maximum required number needed to play, at no time may the number of players for one gender exceed the number of players of a different gender by more than TWO players. However, teams must still meet maximum number of each gender on the field/court of play. Ex: For 8v8 soccer a team may play 4 of one gender and 2 of a different gender but cannot play 5 of one gender and 3 of a different gender. Maximum number is 4 per gender.
  4. No individual shall represent more than one team in the same sport.  However, individuals may compete in a CoRec league as well as a single gender league in the same sport.
  5. All specialty leagues (i.e. Grad/Staff/Faculty) are restricted in who can participate, but there is no restriction regarding ability or experience-level.
  6. A player is considered a member of a team if their name appears on the roster. Once a player plays for a team, they are committed to that team and may not switch to another team.
  7. Teams are strongly urged to enter into the proper level of competition. Should a team obviously be playing out of their competitive level, the Intramural Sports Office will immediately counsel that team and has the right, at their discretion, to move a team up to the next class level for playoffs.

Violations

Violation of any eligibility rule(s) will result in:

  • Loss of all contest in which the ineligible player(s) participated (participating is defined as checking into the game).
  • May result in disqualification of the violator from further intramural participation in that sport.
  • A fine for each game in which the player participated.
  • Playoffs: During the playoffs, player eligibility must be protested prior to the game or as soon as the ineligible player checks into the game.

Competitive Balance

Teams are strongly urged to enter into the proper level of competition. Should a team obviously be playing out of their competitive level, the Intramural Sports Office will immediately counsel that team and has the right, at their discretion, to move a team up to the next class level for playoffs.
