Sportsmanship is an important part of Intramural participation. The Sportsmanship Policy is designed to encourage enjoyable recreation experiences for all participants and officials. Sportsmanship includes respect demonstrated towards officials, opponents, rules, equipment and facilities. Each team will receive a copy of the policy at the pre-season Captains meeting. Teams will be evaluated on their sportsmanship (points and description below) which may affect future play for both the playoffs and other intramural leagues or recreational activities. Captains are responsible for the conduct of their teams.
*Note: These ratings are based on officials' interpretation of sportsmanship demonstrated by teams and spectators before, during end after each game.
