All participants are responsible for knowing the policies, procedures and rules of the Intramural Sports program.

Participant policies

Team name policy

Student Recreation & Wellness Services is committed to assuring that its programs are free from discriminatory, inappropriate, and disrespectful conduct or communication. The Intramural Sports program, therefore, reserves the right to disallow any team name that we feel may be unacceptable.

When choosing a team name, please ensure it is in good taste and is not offensive to individuals or groups on the basis of race, ethnicity, religion, disability, age, gender, sexual orientation, or culture. We ask that all team names not contain profanity, racial slurs, sexual innuendo, references to drugs or alcohol, or other words that may be offensive or otherwise degrading in nature.

Team names may be rejected at the discretion of the Intramural Sports administrative staff; in the event we need to remove a team name we will simply change the team name to the Captain’s last name and provide the Captain an opportunity to choose a new one. Should the Captain be unable to submit an appropriate name again, the team will remain named with the Captain’s last name for the duration of the season.
