Registering Teams and Completed Entries

Preference in registration will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

  • Completion and passing of the Intramural Policies and Procedures Test (via IMLeagues) by a team captain
  • Creation time of a completed entry (via IM Leagues) in the desired division

**Incomplete entries may not be accepted

A valid and complete intramural entry includes the following:

  • Team sport entry:
    • A completed entry (via IM Leagues) in the desired division
    • Minimum one team member listed
  • Individual or Dual sport entry:
    • A completed entry (via IM Leagues) in the desired division
    • Minimum one team member listed – Individual events
    • Minimum two team members listed – Dual (two-person team)events

Individual flyers, the SRWC website, and the intramural information board in the SRWC contain more detailed information for each intramural activity.  These information sources list the different leagues, days, and playing times for each activity.  Preference in registration and scheduling is evaluated on the criteria listed above.    

If there are more entries than available spaces for a particular activity, a waiting list is created.  If a team is removed from a league due to forfeits, the team on top of the waiting list is given the first opportunity to fill the vacancy.  If the first team on the waiting list is unable to fill the vacancy, the second team on the list will be contacted.  This process continues until the vacancy has been filled or all teams have been contacted

Organizations entering multiple teams should make every attempt to have a representative from each team in attendance at the manager’s meeting.  Failure to do so may result in the limiting of multiple entries from one organization.
