Code of Conduct & Eligibility Requirements

Intramural participants are expected to behave like the upstanding people the university believes them to be. Our leagues are based on the fair play principles of integrity, fairness, and respect. Students found to be in violation of these principles will be suspended from play.

Fighting & Unsportsmanlike Conduct

Any player who uses profane language, makes verbal threats or demeaning remarks directed at any player or Supervisor, or engages in any act of violence (including attempted violence) will be immediately ejected from the game(s) and suspended one game. The Captain will also be automatically suspended one game. All unacceptable behaviour will be dealt with individually by the Recreation Coordinator and Intramural Supervisor. A meeting with the Team Captain, player(s) involved, and the Recreation Coordinator must take place before they are eligible to play again. Repeat offenders (more than once) will be ejected from the league. Future eligibility in Recreation programs is subject to approval from the Recreation Coordinator.
