Eligibility
INDIVIDUAL
The following individuals are eligible to participate in the Intramural Sports Program: Full-time UMD student or UMD faculty/staff, and part-time students with a facilities pass.
STUDENT is defined as any undergraduate or graduate who is currently enrolled as a student (day or night, full or part-time) and can produce a University I.D. or facilities pass. Non-UMD students are NOT eligible for Intramural sports but may participate in some Informal and Club sport activities.
STAFF is defined as any person who is receiving compensation for services rendered to the University, is listed as an employee of a department within the University and can produce University identification accompanied by a current, valid facilities pass.

General Eligibility
An individual can participate for only one team (per sport or contest). The team they first represent will be the only team for which the person can play for the remainder of the sport or contest being played. An individual may compete on one men's or one women's team as well as one co-intramural team.

Tean Representative Meeting
Intramural events require attendance by at least one team representative at a pre-season captains' meeting. Intramural rules, regulations, and any questions
participants may have are covered at these meetings. ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY FOR EACH TEAM.
FAILURE TO HAVE A REPRESENTATIVE FROM THEIR OWN TEAM AT THIS MEETING WILL RESULT IN A TEAM LOSING THE OPPORTUNITY TO ADVANCE TO POSTSEASON PLAY FOR MAJOR TEAM SPORTS AND A PERCENTAGE OF ITS PLAYING PRIVILEGES FOR WEEKEND OR INDIVIDUAL TOURNAMENTS.

Competitive Levels
Intramural Sports are offered in two different competitive levels when possible. This differentiation is created to provide competition that will incorporate varied levels of skill and intensity. These leagues will compete in separate post-season tournaments. Generally, if fewer than four teams from a level qualify for play-off competition, all teams in that sport will play in the same tournament.
1.GOLD- highly competitive league
2.MAROON- less competitive league

Sportsmanship Policy
Sportsmanship is an important part of Intramural Sports and the RSOP policy is designed to encourage enjoyable recreation experiences for all participants and officials. Each team will receive a copy of the policy at the pre-season Captains meeting. Sportsmanship includes respect toward all players and officials, fair play, and following the rules. Teams will be rated on their sportsmanship, which may affect future play. Captains are responsible for the conduct of their team. Play hard, have fun, and be a good sport.

The following sportsmanship policy is in place to
encourage an enjoyable recreational experience for participants and officials.
At the conclusion of each contest, game officials will rate each team based on the sportsmanship exhibited for that game. A numerical system will be utilized as follows:

5-Exceptional sportsmanship exhibited towards
participants and officials. Individuals on this team were respectful of opponents and officials and encouraged each others efforts. At no time was this team disrespectful towards participants or officials.

4-Good sportsmanship exhibited towards participants and
officials. Individuals on this team were respectful of opponents and officials except for one or two minor incidents.

3-Acceptable sportsmanship exhibited towards participants and officials. Individuals on this team were generally respectful of participants and officials, but on a number (more than two) occasions were disrespectful of opponents or officials.

2-Sportsmanship needs improvement. More that one individual on this team was disrespectful of opponents or officials or a particular individual was often disrespectful of opponents or officials.

1-Unacceptable sportsmanship. Majority of individuals on this team were disrespectful of opponents or officials on a regular basis or more than one individual was regularly disrespectful of opponents or officials. This team should reexamine the purpose of intramural sports.

Ratings will be monitored and any team receiving a "1" will be placed on probation. Any team averaging less than "3" at the conclusion of the regular season will be excluded from play-offs. Any team averaging less than "3" after three games will be notified of their rating. Any team receiving two "1's" will be immediately dropped from the league. Any team receiving a "1" during play-off competition will be dropped from the tournament. There will be no appeal process on the rating you receive. As captains you are responsible for the conduct of your team. Play hard, have fun and be a good sport.
