A team is responsible for the actions of individual members of the team and for spectators directly related to the team. Teams/organizations will be held responsible for their actions before, during and after every intramural sports contest. A team/organization may be immediately banned from the Intramural Sports program by Director of Recreational Sports for conduct deemed inappropriate by any member of the Intramural Sports staff.
If physical altercations do occur, the following guidelines will be used for disciplinary purposes:
a. If a player, coach, or spectator participates in a fight, she/he will be ineligible for Intramural Sports competition for 30 intramural sports playing days. This includes attempting to strike an individual. She/he will be brought up on charges to the University Discipline Committee.
b. If more than one player, coach or spectator (from one team) participates in a fight, the entire organization will be eliminated from competition for 60 intramural sports playing days. Each individual will be brought up on charges to the University Discipline Committee.
c. If a player, coach or spectator verbally abuses a member of the Recreational Sports department, including student workers, she/he will be ineligible for Intramural Sports competition for 30 intramural sports playing days. She/he may be brought up on charges to the University Discipline Committee.
