Creating or Finding a Team

Participants looking to put a team together for Intramural Sports must register online on Fusion IM. Registration instructions can be found here.
Intramural Sports has a Free Agent Program that assists participants with finding a team to play on. If you register as a Free Agent, you can sign-up for a sport, league and day/time that works best for you!  Captains can then see available free agents to invite to their team.  As a Free Agent you can also message captain’s to ask if they are in need of more players!
Information on the sports offered during each semester can be found by visiting the Sport Offerings page here on the website!

You can also view the Intramural Sports events to view sport rules, captain’s handouts as well as contact information for each sport!

At the Game Site

A default occurs when a team captain contacts the league coordinator of their sport and completes the default form at least 6 hours prior to their scheduled game.  This game will be counted as a loss toward the defaulting team and sportsmanship for both teams will not be affected.

A forfeit occurs when a team does not have the minimum number of players present and legally signed in at game time. In this case, the game is forfeited, the team receives a loss and a $30 forfeit charge is assessed to the team captain. The team is removed from the league after forfeiting a second time but is not charged a second time. The team captain will be contacted by the staff member in charge of the sport to determine whether or not the team wishes to remain in the league. Teams that do not respond to the staff after forfeiting may be subject to immediate removal from the league.

Players wishing to be dropped from a team must contact the league coordinator in charge of the sport they are playing.  Once a player has followed the proper drop procedures, he/she is eligible to join any other team for the remainder of the activity. A player may be dropped from a roster one time only, during the regular season. During playoffs, players may not be dropped from rosters.
Intramural Sports has an open-ended roster, which means you may have as many people on your roster as you want.

Participants may utilize the Rover Rule to play on as many teams as they want during the regular season! First, you must establish yourself on your “home” roster. Once you appear on this roster, you may utilize the Rover Rule on-site with the Intramural Sports Supervisor.

Only protests based on questions of player eligibility and rule interpretation (when misinterpretation affects the outcome of the game) will be accepted. Protests that challenge judgment calls made by the officials or Intramural Supervisors will not be accepted.
The team captain must make any protest involving rule interpretation to the Intramural Supervisor at the time of which the incident in question occurs. Once a situation has passed, however, it is no longer subject to change or protest.

Eligibility protests must be brought to the attention of the Associate Director of Sport Programs.  Please email jbroska@ufsa.ufl.edu with all eligibility protests.

For more information on protests, please review the Intramural Sports Participants Guide.

All ejected players must meet with the proper administrative staff member before he or she is permitted to participate in future Intramural Sports contests. Ejected players are prohibited from participating in any Intramural Sports contests until they have had their reinstatement meeting.
Intramural Sports uses a variety of courts and fields around campus. Basketball and indoor volleyball compete in the Southwest Recreation Center, softball games are held at the Southwest Softball Fields Complex, and flag football and soccer use Maguire, Lake Alice, Southwest fields and UVS fields. Sand volleyball and ultimate frisbee take place at the sand volleyball courts next to UVS Field or at the Broward Outdoor Recreational Complex. Intramural Sports contests usually take place 5 – 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday and Sunday 3 – 10 p.m.
There are no fields or courts designated for individuals to reserve for practice, however there are multiple fields with open recreation time slots. Flavet Field is open to anyone wishing to practice or scrimmage.

Playoffs

In the Fall and Spring semesters, all teams who play in the appropriate leagues, have a .500 or better record must average at least a 4.0 in sportsmanship, and have a maximum of one forfeit or default during the regular season to be eligible for the playoffs. Teams with a below .500 record that have a 4.0 average in sportsmanship points may e-mail the league contact no later than 12 p.m. following the last day of the regular season to be eligible for the playoffs. These teams must also have a maximum of one forfeit or default during the regular season. In the Summer semesters, teams must have a .500 or better record, 4.0 average in sportsmanship and have a maximum of one forfeit or default during the regular season to be eligible for the playoffs. Teams with a winning percentage below .500 or a sportsmanship rating below 4 must petition to play in the playoffs. Captain’s must e-mail the league contact directly before the last day of the regular season.
A forfeit occurs when a team does not have the minimum number of players present and legally signed in at game time (or by seven minutes past scheduled game time in some cases). In this case, the game is forfeited, the team receives a loss and a $30 forfeit charge is assessed to the team captain. The team is removed from the league after forfeiting a second time but is not charged a second time. The team captain will be contacted by the staff member in charge of the sport to determine whether or not the team wishes to remain in the league. Teams that do not respond to the staff after forfeiting may be subject to immediate removal from the league.
The Intramural Sports Program expects all participants to conduct themselves in a sportsmanlike manner. Sportsmanship points are awarded to teams during each contest, based on how teams conduct themselves during their respective game or match. Teams must average at least a 4.0 sportsmanship rating to be eligible for the playoffs. In the playoffs, winning teams receiving less than a 4.0 will be reviewed by the IM Staff to determine if they advance.
