The following adjustments to Vandy Rec Intramurals and Fitness Challenge operations have been made in light of the COVID-19 pandemic:
COVID Intramural and Fitness Challenge Policies
- Students must remain 10 feet apart while engaging in activities.
- Students must remain 6 feet apart while moving about.
- The gathering size is limited to 7 participants per session time slot.
- Masks must remain on at all times including vigorous activity.
- Fully remote students are not allowed on campus at this time to participate with teams.
- As activities remain outdoors for the Spring semester, if inclement weather arises or temperatures drop below 32 degrees the Vandy Rec Staff will cancel activities.
Teams looking to reschedule a game or match must contact the IM Competitive Sports stafffor approval. Following staff approval, an email will be sent to both captains to discuss an agreed upon new time and date. IM Leagues will reflect the agreed upon new time and date. Note, opposing captains can reject opponent reschedule requests. Games must be rescheduled in the following calendar week. IM Competitive Sports staff may ask for proof of conflict.
Reschedules can occur for the following reasons:
- Academic event impacting majority of a team.
- Holiday event impacting majority of a team.
A team captain wishing to forfeit a game must contact the IM Competitive Sports staff prior to 2 p.m. on game day. A team that fails to show or contact the IM Competitive Sports office will be handed a loss. A team that has more than 2 forfeits in a season will be ineligible for the playoffs. Further, any team that has 3 forfeits in a season will be removed from their league.
Day of Play Policy
While every game will be attempted to be scheduled on the same night, weather, reschedules, and field availability can adjust some game schedules. A team’s full schedule will be posted after the registration period. IM Leagues will reflect all schedule updates and changes.
Due to COVID-19 events will be structured in 2 formats. For head-to-head competitions there will be a winner crowned each event after 2 matches. For individual events (disc golf, etc.) winners will be announced at the end of each playing period. A final winner’s bracket will be played at the end of the regular season. During this final playoff period, game days and times will be different from the originally scheduled games. Any potential team schedule conflicts will need to be communicated to the IM Competitive Sports staff to ensure facility availability.
