Assumption of Risk
Many intramural sports activities present the inherent possibility of injury. Participation in the program is voluntary; individuals assume responsibility for their own health and safety. All individuals who intend to participate in vigorous sports should, for their own protection, have a physical examination to determine that they are physically able to participate. Medical insurance, which would cover expenses incurred in the event of injury is not provided by PSU and is strongly recommended.
A captain is the individual who organizes an intramural team and registers it to be placed in a league, or tournament.

A decision of whether to play or cancel games will be made at 2:00 pm the day of the inclement weather. The Intramural Sports supervisor may cancel games, if necessary, after 3:00 pm. Information on the status of games is available by calling the Intramural Sports Office 240-6778 or visit the Intramural Sports website at http://go.pittstate.edu/im.leagues.login
The Intramural Sports Office will reschedule games that are cancelled because of inclement weather if time, space, and personnel are available. Teams should check the bulletin board in the SRC, Intramural Sports Office, or the website for rescheduled games. The Intramural staff will attempt to contact captains about rescheduled games due to inclement weather, but it is ultimately the captains responsibility to check themselves.
Cancelled Games & Rescheduling
Once a League or Tournament has been created, the schedule will not be changed unless approved by the Assistant Director of Intramural Sports.
Rescheduling is limited to available time, space, and personnel. The Intramural Sports staff can agree to the rescheduling of an Intramural Sports team contest. A contest can only be rescheduled by the agreement of representatives from both teams. A representative of both teams must complete a Rescheduling form at the Intramural Sports Office prior to 11:00 am the day of the contest. Rescheduling is limited to available time, space, and personnel.
The rules in all sports are based on National Intramural Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA), and National Association rules with modifications, when appropriate. This is to make activities safe and enjoyable for the players while attempting to maintain the identity of the game. The rules of each sport will be discussed at the captain's meeting for that sport and are also available on the Intramural Sports web page at www.pittstate.edu/recsports.
The scorecard is the official record of score, rosters, and results. The first and last names of a team's current roster will be printed on the scorecards. The score, as noted on the scorecard, shall be considered final unless a protest has been filed.
The Team Captain or captain's designee has the responsibility of ensuring that:
By signing the scorecard, the captain indicates that the scorecard is complete and accurate. Should the scorecard not be signed, the captain assumes the responsibilities for any inaccuracies.
Protests based on misinterpretation of the rules must be made by the team captain, manager, or their designee. Judgment calls by an official may not be protested.
Alcohol, Drugs, & Tobacco
Alcoholic beverages, drugs, and tobacco are prohibited on or near the playing fields and courts during intramural activities. Officials, players, or spectators who show evidence of current or previous alcoholic consumption or drug use will be required to leave the playing area and are subject to ejection. Any teams, including spectators, having alcoholic beverages at an intramural game site are subject to being charged with a forfeit, and may be referred to the University Police, Campus Life & Auxiliary Services and/or the President's office.
Our purpose is to provide exercise, recreation, and fun to our participants in a structured environment. Everyone is encouraged to play to the best of their abilities, but cheating, verbal and physical abuse, and a win-at-all-cost attitude is considered inappropriate. Having these principles of sportsmanship in our foundation is necessary to facilitate the spirit of competition. A sportsmanship of 3.0 is required for postseason play.
Ejection Procedure & Discipline
NOTE: Participants are subject to ejection from intramural events from the time they arrive at the game site to the time they leave. Participants may be additionally sanctioned for any harassment of staff or other participants that takes place off of Campus Recreation premises if reported by staff members, including electronic form of harassment (ex. Social Media, text messages).
Imposition of Penalties
Rules, regulations, and interpretations have been established to facilitate the orderly and efficient administration of both the division's programs and the facilities serving the program. A participant who fails to comply with the established rule or regulation normally will incur a penalty. For example, in an intramural single-elimination tournament, if the match results are not reported before the match deadline, participants are forfeited from the tournament.
Accidents and Injuries Players participate in the Intramural Sports program at their own risk. The state of Kansas and PSU does not accept liability for the injury of participants in the Intramural Sports Program.
Medical Examinations All students should have a complete physical examination on file at the Student Health Center before participating in vigorous recreational sports.
Serious Medical Conditions Those students with serious medical conditions should make the Office of Campus Activities and the Student Health Center aware of their conditions prior to participation in an Intramural Sports activity.
