  • Is there a fee to participate?
    There is a $40 refundable team registration fee for each team that you register in a league. This registration fee must be paid to the Intramural Coordinator in the Recreation Office (Room 321) of the RAC in full by the date of the manager’s meeting to ensure your team gets games scheduled. The deposit will be returned at the end of each season if a team does not forfeit two or more games.
  • What is the Manager’s Meeting?
    The team manager, or a representative from your team, will be required to attend the manager’s meeting. If a team representative fails to attend the manager’s meeting, a team on the waiting list will be given your position within the league. The manager’s meeting will take approximately 30-45 minutes. Rules, sportsmanship guidelines, and other information will be covered during the meeting.
