Uniforms, Attire, and Team Name Rules

Uniforms and Attire 

All recommendations and requirements of proper attire are for the safety of the participants, and the enhancement of the games. 

  • ONLY gym shoes allowed in the gyms.
  • All participants must wear athletic type shoes.
  • No open-toed sandals; no bare feet, no socks.
  • Cleats must have all-rubber soles. Absolutely no metal cleats.
  • ABSOLUETLY NO JEWELRY OF ANY KIND, including for religious reasons. 

Jerseys

  • Team may wear their own created uniform if it clearly differentiates them from their opponent. 
  • Due to the color of our official’s uniforms, teams may not wear light blue.
  • Colored jerseys will be provided for all teams who do not have their own uniform, as well as those teams that have players that arrive to their game in light blue clothing. 

Team Names 

Intramural captains are encouraged to give their teams funny, clever, and creative names. However, those team names must be clean and in good taste. The Intramural office reserves the right to change any team name at its discretion, and corresponding disciplinary action is subject to be taken on those in violation of this policy.

Awards

Awards

Championship T-Shirts

  • Intramural Championship T-shirts will be given as awards for the Champions in every intramural activity offered throughout the academic school year. The t-shirts will be handed out at the site the night of the championship contest. A team will only receive t-shirts for those players who are listed on the official playoff roster.

Team Sportsmanship Rating

Team Sportsmanship Rating

What? 

All players, coaches, and fans that attend or participate in Intramural activities are subject to helping or hindering a team’s sportsmanship rating. Individuals and teams who are unable to conduct themselves in a respectful manner will not be invited to the playoffs, as teams must maintain a 3 average to be eligible for playoffs. 

Process? 

At the end of each competition, staff will assign a sportsmanship rating based on the team's behavior throughout the game. The captain then signs the scorecard verifying the score is correct and accepting their sportsmanship rating.

Ratings

(4) ABOVE AVERAGE: A high level of sportsmanship, respect, and civility is consistently shown to opponents, teammates, staff, spectators, facilities, and equipment at all times; winning a game by default or forfeit. 

(3) AVERAGE: No incidents of poor sportsmanship or only a minor infraction, which the captain effectively addresses; properly defaulting a game in a timely manner. 

(2) BELOW AVERAGE: Examples include but are not limited to swearing, disrespect toward opponents, staff, or spectators, consistently arguing officials’ calls, one ejected player/spectator and that player/spectator was the only problem 

(1) UNACCEPTABLE: Examples include multiple players/spectators ejected, fighting, abusive language, verbal or physical threatening to anyone, any behavior resulting in the contest being called to a stop by intramural staff; forfeiting a game. 

Why? 

In order to ensure a fun, safe environment for all to enjoy. 

** Teams are responsible for any coaches or spectators at their contest and these coaches and/or spectators influence the sportsmanship rating **

Ejection Policy and Misconduct

Ejection Policy and Misconduct

Any player that is ejected from an Intramural Sports game or activity must leave the premises before play can be continued. Additionally, that individual is immediately and indefinitely suspended from all teams that he or she participates on. In order to be reinstated, a player must: 

  1. Email imadvisorycommittee@gmail.com to set up a reinstatement meeting (responses are not guaranteed under any certain timeframe, so please be patient).
  2. Attend said meeting and discuss with committee member the extent of the ejection
  3. Receive further suspension or other action as deemed necessary 

The Intramural office reserves the right to enact whatever punishment it finds suitable for all ejections or incidents. Intramural participation is a privilege, not a right. Often times, players are immediately reinstated for infractions that are minor in nature. In other instances, players have received yearly suspensions or even lifetime bans. 

Misconduct by intramural staff 

When participants experience displays of conduct by Intramural Sports employees that are inconsistent with the philosophy stated above, the following procedure should be followed:

  • Contact Intramural Sports Administration the next business day to formally file a complaint.
  • Fill out an incident report form detailing the allegation. 

All incidents that are serious in nature will be forwarded to Student Rights and Responsibilities for possible further disciplinary action.

Alcohol, Drug, and Tobacco Policy

Alcohol, Drug, and Tobacco Policy

No alcoholic beverages, illegal drugs, or tobacco products may be consumed/used prior to or while using Sun Devil Fitness Complex fields, courts, or other facilities. Students will be held accountable for their actions at Intramural programs both through their team (sportsmanship rating, suspensions, ejections, etc.) and through the University. Should any person be in violation of the above rules, SDFC employees reserve the right to call ASU PD for assistance at any time.

All incidents that are serious in nature will be forwarded to Student Rights and Responsibilities for possible further disciplinary action.
