Participation and Eligibility
Participation in the Intramural Program is open to all currently enrolled U.T.P.B. students, and any faculty, staff, or spouse who has paid the annual gym membership fee.
Varsity athletes will be limited to the number of varsity players allowed on a roster in that sport. This will be up to the discretion of the Intramural Director.
Fees will be charged for events where cost recovery is necessary, such as a golf tournament.
Fees will also be charged where deliberate equipment destruction occurs. The individual(s) causing the destruction will be responsible for replacement costs.
Health and Safety
Every effort will be made to insure the safety of intramural participants, costs for medical attention must be assumed by the participant. Insurance is not provided for injuries sustained during intramural competition.
An accident report will be filled out at the time of an injury sustained during any intramural event.
Championship teams or individuals will receive intramural awards, generally T-shirts. Each event will have rules regarding eligibility for awards. (i.e. number of games participated in, # of shirts per team.)
No protest will be considered if it involves the judgment call of an official, or the question of an official's ability.
If a contest is protested for any other reason, that protest must be submitted in writing to the Student Recreation Office within 24 hours of the contest. It will then be ruled on by the Intramural Director, Student Assistants, and a committee of 3 students. Decisions of this committee will be final.
Good sportsmanship is expected of all intramural participants. Verbal and/or physical abuse toward intramural officials, opponents, or teammates will not be tolerated.
Game officials, student assistants, or the intramural director have the right to suspend a player from a game or games, or from further participation in any intramural event it inappropriate conduct occurs. Rules of conduct will be reviewed at the beginning of each new event.
