Back To Top
Forfeits: Game-time is forfeit time. Teams must be signed in and ready to play at game time. A forfeit is recorded as a loss and results in a sportsmanship rating of “0.” The first forfeit will result in a loss of the team deposit and the second forfeit will result in a loss of the forfeit fee and the second forfeit will result in the team being dropped from that league.
- If a team/individual forfeits once during the regular season, they may regain playoff eligibility with a one-time, playoff reinstatement payment of $30. This payment must be made before 12:00pm on the following day.
Defaults: Due to the busy schedules of most students, there will be times when a team or individual will not be able to make their scheduled game. In this instance, the team or individual may communicate to the Intramural Sports Office via email or phone that they will not be present. This must be done by 5:00pm on the day of the scheduled game to allow enough time to call the opposing team or individual and make any other personnel changes that may result. In the event of a default, the team or individual will:
- Receive a loss
- Not to be assigned any sportsmanship rating
- Still be eligible for the playoffs
- Be eligible to get their forfeit fee returned
*More than 2 defaults = 1 forfeit.
Games that are rained out are NOT guaranteed to be re-scheduled, but may be re-scheduled at the discretion of the Assistant Director of Intramural Sports. In the event a game cannot be re-scheduled, each team will receive a win for the scheduled contest. In case of inclement weather, call 972-883-4087 before 5:00pm, 972-883-2090 after 5:00pm, or visit our website.
Absolutely no alcohol or tobacco is allowed in the intramural playing areas. If either is present, the contest will not be played and will be considered a forfeit. This policy includes spectators. The supervisor and/or officials have the authority and responsibility to make decisions regarding students who are not permitted to play.
Protests may be lodged based on rule discrepancies or rule interpretations involving Intramural staff. Protests based on an Official's judgement call are not valid and will not be accepted.
Steps to be followed when filing a protest:
- Request a stoppage in play immediately after the play in question, and try to resolve the situation using the Team Captains and the Officials. If the captain does not immediately notify the official of his/her intent to protest, he/she waives all rights to protest on that call.
- If a discrepancy still exists after the official ruling is made, the Team Captain must immediately ask for and notify a Supervisor verbally, that the remainder of the game will be played under protest. The Supervisor will attempt to resolve the complaint.
- If the Supervisor cannot settle the dispute, the game Officials will note the time, score, and circumstances and play will continue.
- At the end of the contest, the protesting team's Captain must complete and turn in a written protest form that night, in conjunction with an Intramural Supervisor. The completed form will be turned in to the office by the Supervisor along with game results. If a protest occurs during a playoff game when the winning team is scheduled to play again that night, a final decision will be reached before the next game begins.
- Protests involving player eligibility will be accepted in the Intramural Office during the next weekday after the event. Protests will be ruled on by the Intramural Office staff as quickly and fairly as possible. Both Team Captains will be contacted regarding a final decision.
Participation is a privilege, not a right!The Sportsmanship Rating System
The Sportsmanship Rating System is intended to be an objective scale by which teams' attitude and behavior can be assessed throughout the Intramural Sports league and playoff seasons. Behavior before, during, and after an Intramural sports contest is included in the rating. The team captain is responsible for educating and informing all players and spectators affiliated with his/her team about the system.
A team is responsible for the actions of the individual team members and spectators related to it. The team captain's efforts in assisting officials/staff to calm difficult situations and to restrain troubled teammate are key to controlling team conduct.
Sportsmanship is vital to the conduct of every Intramural contest. In order to encourage proper conduct during games, officials, administrative personnel, and supervisors shall make decisions on whether to warn, penalize, or eject players or teams for poor sportsmanship. These decisions are final. The Intramural Sports administrative staff will rule on further penalties as a result of unsportsmanlike conduct.
Each participant should choose his or her team members carefully, as all team members will suffer the consequences of any disciplinary action taken by the Intramural Sports staff against the team for violation of the Intramural rules and sportsmanship guidelines.
Each team in each contest shall be rated by the officials. The authority of the officials' ratings exists prior to, during, and following all contests to which that official is assigned, and extends to all persons on, at, or near the playing site. Sportsmanship ratinsg shall be marked on the scoresheet.
In all cases, IM supervisors and the Intramural Sports administrative staff may provide input which may raise or lower the rating. Supervisors may amend any rating for inappropriate conduct by a team or its spectators before, during, or after a contest. Intramural Sports administrative staff members may amend a rating at any time for inappropriate conduct, use of an ineligible player, use of a suspended player, and/or inaccuracy in reporting. The Intramural Sports administrative staff reserves the right to review any rating given to a team.
At the end of each contest, it is the team captain's responsibility to sign and verify the score sheet and check their sportsmanship rating. If the captain does not agree with their sportsmanship rating, they may protest the rating to the Assistant Director of Intramural Sports by filling out a protest form (available from on-site supervisors). This must be done within 10 minutes upon the completion of the contest; teams who do not protest within the allotted time forfeit all rights to protest their sportsmanship rating.
The following actions and behaviors by team members, spectators, and/or team followers can have a positive effect on a team's sportsmanship rating:
- Team members cooperate with and demonstrate good sportsmanship toward members of both teams, spectators, officials, and all other IM staff.
- Team captain exhibits control over his/her team and spectators, converses reasonably and rationally with officals about rule interpretations/calls, and cooperates by providing any information requested by an IM offical/staff.
- Team members participate in the spirit and intent of the intramural sport game rules and/or program policies. Team members accept judgment decisions made by the officials during the contest.
- Respect is shown for UTD Recreational Sports facilities and equipment.
The following actions and behaviors by team members, spectators, and/or team followers can have a negative effect on a team's sportsmanship rating:
- Participants/spectators who continually complain about officials' decisions and display dissention which may include derogatory or abusive remarks. Complaints include both verbal and nonverbal behavior. Excessive arguing between opposing teams/spectators might also lead to a lower rating.
- Team captain (spokesperson) exhibits little control over his/her team and spectators, converses in a dissenting manner with officials about rule interpretations/calls (discussion is allowed as long as it is done in a mature manner by the team captain), or does not cooperate with game officials or IM staff. Does not provide information requested by any intramural sports official/staff while performing duties.
- Having any technical fouls or penalties for unsportsmanlike conduct or having a player ejected for unsportsmanlike conduct.
- Taunting an opponent or opposing team spectator (trash talk).

- Physical abuse by participants/spectators in the form of fighting with an opponent, teammate, official, or staff member which occured before, during, or after an Intramural Sports contest.
- Any threatening behavior (verbal and/or nonverbal) to any UTD Intramural Sports or Recreational Sports employee, participant, or spectator which occured before, during, or after an Intramural Sports contest.
- Individuals/teams played after the consumption of alcohol/drugs. If the contest has begun when this is discovered, the player(s) will be immediately removed from the facility, and the contest will be forfeited to the opponent.
- Damage to or destruction of any UTD or UTD Recreational Sports facilities including failure to remove trash from the field from the field or court following a game or match.
Team sportsmanship is graded following each contest according to the following scale and criteria:
- Players cooperate fully with the officials about rule interpretations and calls. The captain also has full control of his/her teammates. Team members and spectators were respectful of opponents and officals and encouraged each other's efforts. At no time was this team disrespectful towards participants or officials.
- Team members and spectators are respectful of opponents and officials except for one or two minor incidents which may or may not merit a warning from the game officials or supervisor.
- Team members or spectators are disrespectful of opponents or officials on a number of occasions which may or may not warrant a penalty. Captain exhibits minor control over his/herself and his/her teammates and spectators. Teams receiving multiple warnings or having a player ejected for an unsportsmanlike act should receive no higher than a "C" rating.
- Teams constantly comment to the officials and/or opposing teams from the field and/or sidelines. The team captain exhibits little or no control over teammates or himself/herself. Majority of individuals on this team are disrespectful of opponents or officials on a regular basis.
- Teams which receive a second unacceptable rating ("D") in the same sport or activity are subject to immediate dismissal from league or tournament play. 0 points (F): Season Ending Rating
- Team is completely uncooperative and out of control before, during, or after intramural sports contest(s).
- Team captain (spokesperson) exhibits poor control over self, the team, and/or the spectators.

3 points (B): Acceptable Sportsmanship
2 points (C): Sportsmanship Needs Improvement
1 point (D): Unacceptable Sportsmanship
The following actions can result in an "F" sportsmanship rating:
Special Game Situations

A team that wins a game by forfeit after the game has started and game play has occured shall receive a rating based on their sportsmanship in the game play up to the time of the forfeit.
A team losing by default will receive no team sportsmanship rating for the game. However, a team losing by forfeit will receive 0 points (F rating).
Teams receiving an unacceptable (D, 1 point) or lower sportsmanship rating in a weekend tournament will be eliminated from further competition regardless of the contest's outcome.
Team Sportsmanship & Playoff Eligibility
A team must have a B(3.0) average or better sportsmanship rating during the playoffs. The average will include regular season and playoff games.

Team & Organization Sportsmanship Violations
Independent teams and organizations may be placed on probation for major sportsmanship violations by their members, such as using ineligible players; threatening actions towards opponents, officials, or supervisors, or fans entering the playing area. Probationary status may last up to one calendar year. Upon the second major violation within any one calendar year, the organization may be immediately suspended from all intramural activities for one year.
Most of the intramural sports have a fee that is required for a team or individual in order to complete registration. These small fees (no higher than $25 per team) are not in place to generate revenue, but rather to reduce the number of forfeits. If a team attends the captain’s meeting and does not forfeit throughout the season, including playoffs, the team will get the fee returned. After the season is over, teams will have 10 days to come in and pick-up their check, otherwise it will be shredded.
Each entry MUST be correlated to a forfeit fee. Once registered for an event on IM Leagues.com, individuals/team captains MUST turn in their forfeit fee before the end of that sport’s captain’s meeting. Per university policy, payment must be in the form of a check so that at the end of the intramural season, it can be destroyed if needed. Teams that fail to attend the captain’s meeting or forfeit during the season will have their checks automatically deposited.Back To Top
