Players who desire to be placed on a team should register on IM Leagues as soon as possible. The professional staff will make every attempt to place free agents on teams or form a new team, registrations permitting. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
Teams looking to reschedule a game or match must contact the Competitive Sports Coordinator to ask for their approval. Following approval from the coordinator, the coordinator will email both captains to discuss and agree on a new time and date. Once both captains agree to a new time/date, IMLeagues will reflect the new agreement. Opposing captains can reject reschedule requests. Games must be rescheduled in the following calendar week. Competitive Sports staff may ask for proof of conflict.
Reschedules can occur for the following reasons:
- Scholastic Event impacting majority of a team
- Holiday Event impacting majority of a team
The captain of the team wishing to forfeit a game must contact the Intramural Sports Office prior to 3 p.m. of the scheduled game day. Teams that fail to show up or contact our office will be handed a loss for the match. Teams that forfeit more than 2 times in a season will be ineligible for the playoffs. Teams that forfeit 3 times will be removed from their league.
Day of Play Policy
Games will be scheduled in regards to the night of your registered league. While every game will be attempted to be scheduled on the same night, weather, reschedules, and field availability can adjust some game schedules. Team’s full schedule will be posted after the sign up period, allowing time to look and plan for future games. IMleagues will reflect all schedule updates and changes.
While league play will traditionally occur on a same set night, the playoffs will occur on other nights than normally scheduled. Playoff eligibility depends on field and space availability. Please take note that further rounds times and location can change based around teams requests moving further into the bracket.
Players must participate in at least one regular season game prior to the playoffs in order to be eligible for playoff rosters.
