Sportsmanship is essential for the overall success and enjoyment of the intramural sports program. Part of the philosophy of Campus Recreation is good sportsmanship. “Good sportsmanship” means the understanding and practice of the rules of the game, respect for persons on the opposing team, respect for game officials, supervisors, and all in attendance, maintaining a positive attitude and remembering it is just an intramural game. Acts of unsportsmanlike conduct will not be condoned.
- A player verbally abusing or attempting to strike an opponent, teammate, official, supervisor or spectator shall automatically be suspended for a minimum of two games and possibly longer (at the discretion of the intramural coordinator).
- Any player striking an opponent, teammate or spectator shall automatically be suspended for a minimum of three games and possibly longer (at the discretion of the intramural coordinator).
- Any player striking or attempting to strike an official or supervisor shall automatically be suspended from intramurals for one year.
- If ejected from a game for misconduct, the player must sit out the remainder of that sport and the team’s next scheduled sport at the direction of the intramural coordinator. It is the responsibility of the ejected player to discuss his/her status with the intramural director on the next working day following the sport.
- All the individuals are responsible for their own actions. A team’s action is the responsibility of the team captain. Failure to comply with the rules of the sport as well as eligibility and protest rules may result in future loss of intramural privileges.
- Repeated unsportsmanlike conduct, disregard for intramural rules or excessively rough play will result in a forfeiture of the contest. The intramural director is responsible for making this decision and may do so without the official’s recommendation.
