A forfeit is an automatic loss, determined by factors other than game play. Teams will be removed from the league after 2 forfeitures
A forfeit will be assessed for the following reasons:
- A team failing to show up at the appointed playing site, at the scheduled time, or did not notify the Intramural Office 24-hours in advance.
- Teams/player(s) guilty of poor sportsmanship behavior and conduct which cause the game to be discontinued.
- Use of ineligible players (the ineligible person will be suspended from participation on any team in that activity)
A default is a way of alleviating a forfeit. Three defaults by the same team in one season will result in the removal from the scheduled league.
Teams will receive a default if they:
- Show up on time, but fail to have sufficient number of players to make it an official game.
- Notify the intramural office in advance that they cannot make a scheduled game. If no notification has been received, the scheduled game is a forfeit.
- If, during the play of a game, a team (regardless if the team is winning or losing) falls below the minimum amount of players needed to continue (due to injuries, etc).
- Teams with insufficient rosters or ineligible players.
As a general rule, games will be played rain or shine. Only in the case of unsafe playing conditions (i.e. lightning, heavy snowfall, large amounts of standing water, extremely cold weather) will games be postponed and/or cancelled.
Intramurals will generally play scheduled games UNLESS the Intramural Office specifically states they have been postponed or cancelled. We recommend that you enter your cell phone number in IMLeagues so that we may text you if games are cancelled.
