• Eligibility is governed by our Intramural Sports Policies & Procedures.
• Game sheets for each week are printed every Sunday morning. In order to be eligible for play, players must be on their team's roster by Saturday at 11:59pm. Players will not be allowed to be written in on rosters at game time.
• A player must participate in at least two regular season games during a five-week schedule for their sport, and in at least four regular season games during a 10+ week schedule to be eligible for the playoffs. Players on the roster who have missed games due to injury can request to be granted eligibility by their sport specific convener to participate in playoffs so long as they present a signed doctor's note including injury date and return to participation date.
• Participants can play on one gender specific team (men's or women's), one co-ed team and one open team (if offered) per sport, per season regardless of competition level.
• Once a player appears on a team roster they are ineligible for any other team in that sport and gender division. If a player is caught playing for multiple teams, he/she will be suspended for the remainder of the season from that sport.
• No current varsity athletes or professional athletes are eligible to play Intramurals in their associated sport. Ex-varsity/professional players are eligible to play Intramurals, however they must play at the highest skill level offered in their associated sport. Varsity/professional status is defined as appearing on a varsity/professional team roster within the last 365 calendar days (regardless of whether or not the sport is currently in or out of season). Ex-varsity/professional status is defined as appearing on a varsity/professional roster within the last 366-730 calendar days (regardless of whether or not the sport is currently in or out of season). Teams in all sports can have one ex-varsity player except ice hockey, softball and soccer 11s teams which are permitted two.

• It is the responsibility of the team captains to check with the Intramural sport convener regarding questions over any player’s eligibility and to ensure all players meet the eligibility requirements.
• A minimum of 4 players is required to be present 10 minutes after the scheduled start time to avoid a default.
