Intramural Sports Policies

INTRAMURAL SPORTS INTRODUCTION

The UNLV Intramural Sports Program provides UNLV students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to participate in a variety of organized, competitive activities throughout each academic year. Activities are organized on both a team and individual basis, and a full schedule of events is offered for both the Fall and Spring Semesters. This calendar is often published at the beginning of the Fall Semester, and is available on the Intramural Sports website.

The Intramural Sports program assumes absolutely no responsibility for injuries related to Intramural Sports participation. It is advised that all participants acquire student health or comparable insurance before participating. A waiver of liability is standard on every event’s entry form, and individuals who do not sign the form will not be eligible for participation. It is the individual’s responsibility to ascertain whether their health may be adversely affected by participating in any physical activity. This is not the responsibility of the Intramural Sports program, its staff, UNLV, the Board of Regents, or the state of Nevada.

All times listed on Intramural Sports publications and schedules are in Pacific Standard or Daylight Time (as appropriate for the time of year). Official starting time will be maintained by the Intramural Program Supervisor at the event venue and may differ from other “official” times. Please plan accordingly.

Intramural Sports also offers many employment opportunities for the student population at-large. Available positions range from sports official to event supervisor to graduate assistant.

Any questions regarding participating or working for Intramural Sports can be directed to the Intramural Sports Coordinators located in the Student Recreation and Wellness Center.

      5. Team Shirts/Jerseys
        1. All participants must wear a shirt/jersey, where the fit of the shirt/jersey is such that the shoulders, torso, and waist are adequately covered by the garment. A Sports Bra is not considered a shirt or proper torso clothing.
        2. All team jerseys must be numbered on the back with a different Arabic number at least six inches in height. Numbers may be provided on the front of the jersey. All numbers must be of contrasting color to the jersey/shirt and clearly visible.  The number must be applied to the jersey/shirt with a permanent, non-fading substance (marker, paint, iron transfer, etc).  Tape or pin on numbers will not be allowed.
        3. Jerseys must be the same color, with a single dominant color.
      6. Proper safety equipment standard for a particular sport is highly recommended (helmets, pads, guards, etc.) but is not a requirement for participation. The Intramural Sports Staff reserves the right to determine if the equipment is deemed appropriate.
      7. Designated Team Bench – When a designated team bench is provided by the IM staff, it is the team managers responsibility to make sure that the only people in the bench area are team players. All spectators are not allowed in the bench area at any time. After all games the team is responsible for cleaning up the bench area. If not done, the team could be penalized up to game forfeiture.
    6. It is a manager’s responsibility to check their team’s status on the Intramural Sports website. If any errors are discovered, they must be reported to the Intramural Sports Staff within 3 business days of the date of the game or by 5:00pm the day after the last game played in the regular season. After this time period, changes will not be made regardless of season implication (NOTE: The Intramural Sports Staff reserves the right to correct the status of all teams if a technical error has occurred).
    7. Managers are responsible for all team interaction with Intramural Sports employees. Non-managers or non-captains are not allowed to discuss or argue an official’s call – which could result in a warning towards the player/ team up to player ejection or team forfeit. Arguing is defined at the official’s discretion.
    8. The team manager maintains the responsibility to provide a participant’s name the ejected participant’s name to the Intramural Sports Supervisor on duty. Failure to comply will result in forfeiture of the current game due to team misconduct.
  5. TEAM/PARTICIPANT ROSTERS

    1. Participants must be listed on the roster form for the sport in question before they are eligible to participate, but may only be listed on the roster if the eligibility requirements have been met. Participants are considered eligible to play for that team immediately after registration is complete.
    2. Additions of eligible participants to a sport roster must be completed online through IMLeagues.com, and must be completed before 4:00p game day to be reflected for that night’s game.
    3. For Team Sports, each team member must play in at least one regular season game to be eligible for tournament play. Any team member who has not met the participation requirement will be marked as “Ineligible”.
    4. A participant’s name must appear on the official game sheet roster before he/she may enter the contest. This may be verified at anytime using any available method.
    5. Women may play in a Men’s league if there are no Women’s conferences for that sport. If a woman wishes to play for a Men’s League team, she must gain approval from the Intramural Sports Staff during SRWC Administrative Office Hours prior to participation.
    6. Team Sports (Large & Small) Team Membership:
      1. Checking-in for a game – by presenting a RebelCard to an Intramural Staff Member for the purposes of playing in a contest – constitutes membership to that team as well as participation for that game, thereby preventing the removal of that person from the team roster. Actual participation in that game is negligible.
      2. Any person who has registered for a team and has not participated for that team may voluntarily remove himself or herself from that team roster.
      3. Any attempting to swap participants among multiple teams, by a single organization, will be disallowed.
      4. A participant may not be removed from a team roster once team membership has been established.
      5. A participant may not be a member of two teams within the same League, with a League being defined within a singular gender (i.e. Men’s League or Women’s League). A participant may be a member of a one Co-Rec League team and a team within one of the other Leagues.
    7. Individual Sport Team Membership:
      1. The individual listed on the Sport Registration Form for any sport involving only one participant must participate in the event.
      2. Substitution of an individual for an Individual Sport Event must be registered with the Intramural Sports Office 24-hours prior to the start of the event/contest.
      3. Participant substitutions/changes within the 24-hours prior to an event/tournament/contest start will not be allowed
      4. Participant substitutions/changes after an event/tournament/contest start will not be allowed
    8. Specialty Divisions
      1. Organizations participating in Intramural Sports and Events will have the opportunity to designate themselves into classifications that best represent their group. These classifications maintain specific roster qualifications wherein the organization must maintain to remain in the specific classification
      2. Student/Greek Organization: any participating organization looking to be classified as a Greek or other Student Organization must have sport rosters with no less than 80% of the participant slots filled by active members. This therefore provides for the following breakdown of non-affiliated participants:
        1. 2-7 Participants = 1 non-affiliated participant allowed
        2. 8-12 Participants = 2 non-affiliated participants allowed
        3. 13-17 Participants = 3 non-affiliated participants allowed
        4. 18+ Participants = 4 non-affiliated participants allowed
      3. Residence Halls: any participating organization looking to be classified as a Residence Hall organization must have sport rosters with no less than 65% of the participant slots filled by current residents. This therefore provides for the following breakdown of non-resident participants:
        1. 2-4 Participants = 1 non-resident participant allowed
        2. 5-7 Participants = 2 non-resident participants allowed
        3. 8-10 Participants = 3 non-resident participants allowed
        4. 11-13 Participants = 4 non-resident participants allowed
        5. 14-16 Participants = 5 non-resident participants allowed
        6. 17-19 Participants = 6 non-resident participants allowed
        7. 20+ Participants = 7 non-resident participants allowed
      4. Active members/current residents: The status of an active member or current resident is regulated by either the Office of Civic Engagement and Diversity or the Office of Residential Life. Either office will be utilized to determine the status of any participant in relationship to an active or current status.
    9. Game/Match Participation:
      1. A registered participant is considered to be a person whose name and N-Number appears on the printed game-sheet for that specific match.
      2. Participation by any unregistered individual will result in immediate forfeiture of all games in which that illegal participant played, and the team may lose tournament eligibility.
      3. Participation by an individual who is deemed registered for a team but not officially cleared to participate in the current match (i.e. checked in with IM Staff with RebelCard) will be penalized with the highest administrative penalty available for the specific sport (i.e. Technical Foul, Yellow Card, Unsportsmanlike Conduct, etc.) without being ejected. However, if the application of this penalty forces a team to exceed their designated allotment for a game (i.e. Four Technical Fouls in one game), the standard rules and results of the game will remain in effect as well as all Sportsmanship Rating Deductions.
    10. Additions may not be made to the team roster as printed on the scoresheet at any time during game play. Also, the deadline to add new participants will be 4:00p on the last day of regular season play.
    11. Corrections may be made to the originally submitted team roster by the designated team manager only. This correction must occur during SRWC Administrative Office Hours with a member of the Intramural Sports Staff. The deadline to correct information regarding previously submitted participants is 5:00pm on day of a team’s last game, and any participants in question will be required to sign a new Intramural Participation Waiver.
  6. TEAM SPORTSMANSHIP POINTS

    1. Each team will begin each new sport with a 4.00 Sportsmanship Rating Average (SRA). Through the course of a season, a team will be rated during each game and given a Sportsmanship Score for each game – subsequently adjusting the team’s SRA. Teams will not inherit an SRA from any previous season or year.
    2. For every game played, Intramural Sports Supervisors and Officials will evaluate each team’s sportsmanship. This includes, but is not limited to, cooperation with officials, fighting, verbal harassment, and any other infractions regarding the rules of fair play. Each infraction type is assigned a deduction value.
    3. Each team will start each game with a 4.00 Sportsmanship Rating Score, and based on the judged sportsmanship penalties may be deducted from the game Sportsmanship Rating Score. In instances where multiple infractions occur in one contest, it is possible for a team to lose all 4 points of the Rating Score.
    4. In instances where the same violation occurs more than once, the total deduction will equal the infraction value multiplied by the number of violations.
    5. Each team is responsible for checking their sportsmanship rating after each game. Failure to sign the sportsmanship rating infraction form forfeits the right to appeal any deduction for that game. Appeals must be made in writing to the Intramural Sports Staff within 48 hours of the contest in question (Note: the administration reserves the right to increase or decrease a penalty at their discretion).
    6. If a team attains an SRA of 1.00 or below during any one game, the team’s manager must meet with the Intramural Sports Staff prior to their next contest or face expulsion from the league.
    7. Each sport will have a minimum SRA required to be considered playoff eligible. Any team that falls below that average will not be eligible for the playoffs – regardless of the team’s league standing.
    8. Sportsmanship Ratings will carry over into any tournament play. A team must maintain the sport’s designated Championship Minimum SRA during the tournament to remain eligible.
  7. FORFEITS

    1. There is no official grace period and games will start at the published game time, as determined at the contest location by the Intramural Sports Staff. If a team fails to appear at the scheduled game time, the Intramural Sports Supervisor on duty will call a forfeit due to team absence. A double forfeit will be declared if neither team is present at game time. Game forfeits will be scored according to each sport’s forfeit rules.
    2. Partial attendance by either or both teams at game time will designate the start of the “Delay Time” procedure, as outlined in each sport’s rules.
    3. Any team caught using ineligible players will forfeit all games in which that person participated and may lose eligibility to the playoffs.
    4. If, in the opinion of the Intramural Sports Staff, a team is not playing the game within the spirit of the rules or fair play, the game may be stopped and a forfeit declared against one or both teams.
    5. If a team drops below the minimum participant requirement during a game due to participant misconduct or personal fouls, play will be stopped and the contest result will be recorded as a forfeit. If a team drops below the required number due to injury,, a forfeit will not be recorded but play will end regardless of when it occurs during the contest.
  8. PROTESTS & APPEALS

    1. Protests concerning an official’s judgment will be taken into consideration for training purposes but will not be used towards the determination of any current call or game outcome.
    2. Protests concerning a misinterpretation of a rule:
      1. Must be verbally registered with the game officials at the time the possible misinterpretation of the rule occurs. The Intramural Sports Staff will privately discuss the scenario and determine the correct ruling, which will be final.
    3. Protests concerning use of an ineligible player
      1. Must be made in writing to the Intramural Sports Coordinator no later than the end of the business day (5:00pm) after the contest was played.
      2. Due to the time sensitive nature of playoff games and scheduling, protests regarding player eligibility may be submitted via verbal communication with the highest ranking Intramural Sports Staff member present at the contest.
      3. Teams/players who knowingly withhold player eligibility information for team/personal gain will themselves be penalized in accordance with Intramural Policies and/or the Student Code of Conduct.
    4. A protest cannot be made on a previous play once the game resumes.
    5. Rescheduling a contest to accommodate an on-site ruling will not be an option.
    6. Protests concerning the application of an Intramural Sports Policy or sportsmanship ruling towards any event offered by the Program must be submitted in writing within 48-hours of the end of the contest to the Intramural Sports Coordinator.
  9. CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT PARTICIPATION

    1. For Individual Sports, Small Team Sports, and Special Events, tournament participation and eligibility will be outlined in the rules for that specific event.
    2. For Team Sports, not all teams will participate in a season ending playoff tournament. Divisional play will determine playoff rankings and placement in any playoff tournament. Playoff participation will be determined by the following.
      1. In leagues or conferences of only one division:
        1. If there are 5 teams or less, all teams meeting tournament requirements will be invited to participate in post-season play.
        2. If there are 6 teams to 10 teams, all teams meeting tournament requirements will be invited to participate in post-season play provided their final division ranking is not in the bottom two positions.
        3. If there are 11 or more teams, the Multiple Division policy (see 9-2-2) will apply.
      2. In all other divisions, only the teams in the top half of the division, which meet tournament requirements, will be invited to participate in post-season play.
        1. If any of these teams are considered ineligible for tournament play, teams below that position will move up and fill any empty spot.
        2. If no other team in a division meets the requirements an open bid will be offered at the bottom of the tournament bracket. This spot will be offered to the next highest ranked team meeting tournament eligibility and not already in a tournament position. If no other team meets the requirements, the position will remain empty.
        3. Depending upon how many eligible teams will be available for the tournament, a variable number of wild-card openings may be made available for the tournament. These wild-card spots will be provided to offer either a balanced tournament bracket or an even number of tournament teams. This wild-card number will be determined prior to posting of the tournament bracket.
    3. Teams invited to participate in Intramural Sports post-season play must meet the eligibility requirements of:
      1. having the designated Sportsmanship Rating Average, or higher, for the specific sport, and
      2. having at least one Win Point, and
      3. having no more than one forfeit during regular season play, and
      4. having at least one win during regular season play.
    4. Tie Breaking Policy
      1. If two teams are considered tied at the end of regular season play, the following tie-breaking policy will be used:
        1. Team Win Points
        2. Sportsmanship Rating Average
        3. Point Differential
        4. Total Points Allowed in all games
        5. Head-to-Head competition
        6. Total Points Scored in all games
      2. If three teams are considered tied at the end of regular season play, the following tie-breaking policy will be used.
        1. Team Win Points
        2. Sportsmanship Rating Average
        3. Point Differential
        4. Record vs. other teams in tiebreak
        5. Points Allowed vs. other teams in tiebreak
        6. Points Scored vs. other teams in tiebreak
        7. Points Allowed in all games
        8. Points Scored in all games
      3. If at any time during the three-team tiebreak one team is eliminated, that team will be dropped and the two team tie-breaking policies will be used.
  10. SPORT CHAMPION AWARDS

    1. The League Champion for each sport will be offered, as their trophy, a shirt appropriately designed and designated as the Intramural Sports Championship Shirt. When available, awards will also be offered for conference champions.
    2. Champion Teams will only be offered a maximum of either the number of active team members as listed on the last Intramural Sports Roster for that team, or the equivalent to double the number of participants required to play on the field/court, which ever number is smaller. For example:
      1. 5-5 Basketball teams will receive a maximum of 10 shirts
      2. 8-8 Soccer teams will receive a maximum of 16 shirts
      3. Singles Tennis will receive a maximum of 1 shirt
      4. EXCEPTION: Softball teams will receive 16 shirts
    3. Shirts will only be distributed to the team’s manager as indicated on the team’s roster form. That person must accept shirts for the entire team.
    4. Shirts will be available for pickup for 45 days after a championship game. Shirts not claimed at that time will be forfeited.
    5. Program sponsors may, at their discretion, provide additional awards to complement the awards provided by the Intramural Sports program. However, the availability of the sponsorship awards may not equal the number of awards provided by the program.
  11. TEAM OF THE YEAR/REBEL CUP

    1. Participants who choose to participate in multiple Intramural Sports events may choose to organize their participation and take part in a yearlong competition to determine the best overall Intramural Sports Team – the Team of the Year.
    2. To participate in the Team of the Year competition, each organization must register its intent to participate in the process. This registration is free, but helps to organize the accumulation process. This registration may occur at any time, but should be completed as early as possible to ensure an accurate computation of the team’s earned points.
    3. Teams participating in the Team of the Year competition will earn points through their participation in all Intramural Sports programs offered, as outlined below.
    4. The Team of the Year competition is arranged into two awards, the Rebel Cup and the Team of the Year.
      1. The Rebel Cup is awarded to the top team in each league’s conference:
        1. Residence Hall
        2. Men’s Fraternity Conference
        3. Men’s Open Conference
        4. Women’s Sorority Conference
        5. Women’s Open Conference
      2. The Team of the Year award is given to the competition team with the most overall points in each league:
        1. Co-Rec
        2. Men’s
        3. Women’s
    5. Each participant, regardless of Cup competition, is subject to the participation regulations as outlined throughout this Policy Manual.
    6. Competition Points are earned in the following manner for different competition formats:
      1. Wins & Losses format:
        1. Each team will generate points through the product of the Team’s Win Points, Sportsmanship Average Percentage, and the Amount Paid Percentage (full details described in the Rebel Cup Procedures).
        2. If an organization has multiple teams entered, the team with the highest points earned will keep all earned points.  All additional teams will earn points generated through the product of the Team’s Win Points and the Sportsmanship Average Percentage.
        3. Participation groups may only earn points in the conferences in which they play. For example:
          • A student organization has a team in the Men’s Open Conference and the Co-Rec League, the participation group will earn points for each respective competition.
          • A student organization has a team in the Men’s Open Conference and the Men’s Fraternity Conference, the participation group will earn points for each respective competition.
      2. Total Points Format/Best Time Format
        1. Team/Participant Entry: 2 points per entry, no entry maximum (participation is required)
        2. Competition Points earned will be based on the top 8 finishing teams/participants. Point break down will be as follows: First – 10pts, Second – 8pts, Third – 7pts, Fourth – 6pts; points earned will progress down to the 8th place participant.
      3. Special Events: An event may arise through the course of the Intramural Sports Calendar that may not fall within the competition scoring guidelines defined above. The Intramural Sports Program reserves the right to define the Team of the Year scoring system for these events prior to the first competition of the event.
    7. Organizations participating in Intramural Sports and Events have the opportunity to designate themselves into classifications that best represent their group. These classifications maintain specific roster qualifications wherein the organization must maintain to remain in the specific classification.
    8. In the event it is determined that an organization participating in the Rebel Cup/Team of the Year competition willingly violates any Intramural Policy, University Policy, or the Student Code of Conduct, the Intramural Staff reserves the right to penalize the organization by withholding or deducting of points from the organization’s total. The size of the penalty will be determined by the Intramural Staff pursuant to the severity of the violation.
  12. RESCHEDULES & WEATHER CONDITIONS

    1. Intramural Sports contests scheduled as part of a Round Robin Tournament where the team picks their day & time at the time of registration will not be rescheduled for any time conflict. Scheduling concerns and recommendations will be considered for other competition formats, but may not be followed due to time or facility conflicts.
    2. Tournament contests will not be rescheduled for any team time conflict. Tournament scheduling considerations will be taken into account before the tournament schedule is made. This request must be made in writing (letter or email) to the Intramural Staff by 9:00am PST/PDT the day after a team’s last regular season game.
    3. Intramural Sports Reschedule Procedure:
      1. The team looking to reschedule the contest must contact the IM Sports Office at least 72-hours before the scheduled start of the game, providing documentation that the reschedule reasons have been fulfilled.  The only reasons allowed for the rescheduling of an Intramural Sports contest are:
        1. Reason 1: The minimum number of players required to play are unavailable due to an academic reason (class, class mandated study group/session, field trip, etc.)
        2. Reason 2: The minimum number of players required to play are unavailable due to a university mandated event (educational session, public speaker, etc.)
        3. Reason 3: The minimum number of players required to play are unavailable due to participation in a UNLV Intramural Sports Tournament Game (i.e. playoff game for another sport scheduled at the same time).
        4. Reason 4: Any time the SRWC is closed for any reason and games will be impacted.
      2. The team requesting the reschedule, after notifying IM Sports and gaining approval for the reschedule, must contact the opposing team to discuss the rescheduling options.
      3. Both teams must accept the reschedule option, as provided by IM Sports.  Variations on the option will be considered by IM Sports, provided facility resources are available to meet the need.
      4. Either team, for any contest, may request a game reschedule.  However, a team may only request a reschedule of a game once (i.e. rescheduling a rescheduled game by the same team will not be allowed).
      5. IM Sports reserves the right to deny a reschedule request based on facility resource constraints.
    4. Regular season contests will not be rescheduled due to poor weather conditions or the subsequent poor facility conditions. Games will be moved to the next week and the last game on the schedule will be canceled. (Exception: Last games will be canceled).
    5. Poor weather conditions will never force the cancellation or rescheduling of indoor Intramural Sports contests. (Exception: University Closure)
    6. Games potentially scheduled on a University recognized holiday would not be played. Season games on these days will not be rescheduled. Teams potentially playing on these days will have one fewer game than teams playing on other days.
    7. Decisions regarding facility conditions will be made by 5:00pm game day. If weather conditions develop after this time, Intramural Staff will make a game time decision at the facility.
    8. Outdoor Tournament Play and Poor Weather Conditions
      1. If weather conditions, or the subsequent poor facility conditions, prevent safe participation games will be canceled.
      2. If needed, all tournament bracket games, up to tournament semi-finals, will have a Game Replacement procedure used to choose a winner, and will not be rescheduled. All Semi-final and Championship games will be rescheduled and played.
      3. Game replacement:
        1. Each bracket game up to the semi-finals will be determined by drawing names out of hat.
        2. Depending upon the team’s rank in the bracket, each team will receive entries corresponding to the number of teams in their tournament bracket minus that team’s rank plus 2 (Ex.: in a game between the 2nd seed and the 7th seed in a bracket of 8 teams, the #2 will receive 8 entries and the #7 will receive 3 entries).
        3. The result will be determined from one draw and the score of the game will be recorded as win using the appropriate score as described within the sports rules.
