Mission of Intramural Sports

The mission of the UAA Intramural Sports Program is to provide a meaningful and beneficial involvement, which allows one to embrace the educational experience offered through sports activities and special events. The Intramural department serves as a means of improving the quality of life, which allows all participants, regardless of degree of skill, an opportunity to develop new friendships, group loyalty, sportsmanship and the respect for all opponents and officials.
 

Joining a Team

  1. If you are not on a registered team by set deadlines, you may sign up at
    the IM Office and be placed on a team that needs players, or be placed on an inactive waitlist. It is your responsibility to check on your status once scrimmages & leagues begin.
  2. If you are unable to do the above, you should attend games during scrimmages to see whether you can be added or waitlisted to a roster.

 

 

Team Captains

Each participating team must have a team captain to conduct all business
with the IM Office. It is suggested that great care be taken in the selection of a
captain who will be responsible for the following:

  1. Entering his/her team in the desired activity by the entry deadline. Full
    names and student ID numbers of all members must be submitted, along with signed and completed Acknowledgement of Risks and Release of Liability forms and as well as the Intramural Participant Sport Activity fee of $10.
  2. Forgery is not acceptable and will result in automatic suspension from the
    intramural program.
  3. The team roster will not be accepted as official unless all members of the team have signed the Risk and Release of Liability form; as well as the team captain's signature.
  4. All completed rosters must be submitted into the UAA IM office on or
    before the deadline to be possibly accepted to participate in league play. This is based on a first come first serve basis.
  5. Any team that is not represented at scheduled captains' meetings will be
    assessed a penalty.
  6. Checking the eligibility of all players by referring to guidelines and ensuring
    that all team members bring their current Wolfcards to the scrimmages and games for eligibility checks. If a player on your roster has not shown up for 3 games and you have tried to contact them, you as captain may remove them from your active roster and move the first person on the waitlist up to active.
  7. *Picking up the game schedule, and keeping team members informed as
    to the date, time, and place of scheduled games and any unscheduled cancellations.
  8. *All team captains, at the end of a game, will be required to initial the
    score sheet to verify final scores.
  9. *All team captains and co-captains are ultimately responsible for team conduct during IM league contests, tournaments or special events.
    Protests must be made within 24 hours of the game/contest in question
    and submitted in writing to the Intramural Director.
