All participants must bring a valid UIS i-card to each and every activity. Supervisors and officials may request an i-card at any time to verify participation. UIS i-cards are also required to enter facilities such as TRAC.
If any participant does not have a valid UIS I-card he/she will be ineligible to participate.
Events using the self-scheduling method are not directly supervised by the Campus Recreation staff. These events allow participants to find mutually agreeable times to compete that best fits his/her schedule. Captains/players are provided contact information for other participants to aid them in setting up days/times to play.
After competing, opposing team captains/players are required to submit an online Results Agreement Form (RAF).
In addition to sport specific rules used for each event, the following rules govern play for events using the Self-Scheduling Method:
- RAFs are only available online or by clicking on the Results Agreement Form link to the left.
- Failure to submit a RAF prior to the deadline waives any right to appeal a submitted RAF from an opponent. Should competing participants fail to submit a RAF prior to the deadline, both will receive a forfeit for that contest.
- All RAF’s must be submitted before 3pm on the specified deadline day. RAF’s date/time-stamped after the deadline will not be accepted.
- If you have difficulty contacting a participant you are to play, it is your responsibility to contact the Campus Recreation Office as soon as possible. Failure to contact the office will still result in a forfeit should the match deadline pass. Contacting the office shows you are making an effort to play.
Sportsmanship Rating Guide
The Intramural Program expects all participants to conduct themselves in a sportsmanlike manner. During and after each contest, Intramural staff evaluates and issues sportsmanship ratings to all teams. The rating guide is as follows:
4 – Excellent Conduct and Sportsmanship – Players cooperate fully with the officials and other team members. The captain calmly converses with officials about rule interpretations and calls. The captain also has full control of his/her teammates, bench, and spectators. Teams that win by forfeit will receive a “4”. Teams that receive 1 verbal warning for use of profanity cannot receive higher than a “3” rating.
3 – Good Conduct and Sportsmanship – Team members verbally complain about some decisions made by the officials and/or show minor dissension, which may or may not merit a yellow card (soccer, volleyball, softball), unsportsmanlike flag (flag football), or technical foul (basketball). Teams that receive 1 yellow card (soccer, volleyball, softball), unsportsmanlike flag (flag football), or technical foul (basketball) cannot receive higher than a “3” rating.
2 – Average Conduct and Sportsmanship – Team shows verbal dissent towards officials and/or the opposing team, which may or may not merit a yellow card (soccer, volleyball, softball), unsportsmanlike flag (flag football), or technical foul (basketball). Captain exhibits minor control over his/her teammates, bench, and spectators, but is in control with him/her. Teams receiving multiple yellow cards (soccer, volleyball, softball), unsportsmanlike flags (flag football), or technical fouls (basketball) cannot receive higher than a “2” rating.
1 – Below Average Conduct and Sportsmanship – Team consistently comments to the officials and/or the opposing team from the field and/or sidelines. The team captain exhibits little or no control over teammates, bench, spectators, and/or himself/herself. A team which receives one red card (soccer, volleyball, softball) or an ejection (flag football, basketball) cannot receive higher than a “1” rating.
0 – Poor Conduct and Sportsmanship – Team is completely uncooperative. Captain has no control over teammates, bench, spectators, and/or himself/herself. Any team causing a game to be forfeited, other than by not showing, or receives multiple ejections will receive a “0” rating.
During Regular Season Play:
- A team that receives a “0” rating must have their captain meet with the Assistant Director of Recreational Sports- Programming the following business day to be eligible to play their next contest.
- A team must have a 3.0 average or better sportsmanship rating to be eligible to participate in playoffs, regardless of record.
- A team winning a contest by default will receive a “4” rating.
- A team winning a contest by forfeit will receive a “4” rating.
- A team losing a contest by default will receive a “3” rating.
Sportsmanship Ratings During the Playoffs:
- If a team receives a “0” rating they will be eliminated from the playoffs.
- A player receiving an ejection will be disqualified from all remaining playoff games
