- Persons eligible to play are MUSC students and their spouses, MUSC employees, and Wellness Center members. Note that if you are not a Wellness Center member, you must pay the daily use fee to access the facility.
- All players must present their MUSC ID to the intramural coordinator on duty or referee before beginning play. If a player who is eligible does not have an MUSC ID (such as a student spouse or wellness center member), they must present a valid government issued photo id. Students and MUSC Fac/Staff who fail to bring their MUSC ID will not be allowed to play.
- The format is 6 on 6. Players may play in one league only: Competitive or Co-Rec. Teams in either league may be single sex or co-ed but the Co-Rec league requires a minimum number of females on the court at all times.
- Completed rosters for the first week of play will be due by Wednesday, October 29th by 3:00 p.m. in the Student Programs Office.
- Additions to rosters will not be accepted after December 6th. Additions may be made in the Student Programs Office or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If any unrostered player plays the 5th game or after, all games in which he or she participates will be forfeited.
- Each team is required to pay a refundable $50 registration fee. Fees are due in Student Programs prior to the first game date. The registration fee must be paid in cash!
- Teams will not be scheduled to play until the registration fee is paid. Teams late in paying their fee will still receive “byes” according to weekly scheduling.
- Teams completing the season without any forfeits will be refunded in full. Teams with 1 forfeit for the season will be refunded $25. Teams which forfeit twice will lose the entire sum and be disqualified from the league. In order to avoid a forfeit, please see section headed Byes and Forfeits.
- Registration fee refunds should be picked up by the Team Captain in Student Programs within 30 days following the end of the season.
- Teams will not be able to transfer their registration fee from one sport to the next. Each sport needs to be closed out upon completion.
BYES & FORFEITS
- Team Captains may request a bye for a particular weekend by emailing an Intramural Coordinator no later than 3 p.m., the Wednesday before the weekend that the bye is needed. (For email addresses, see section headed QUESTIONS or PROBLEMS)
- A team may request byes. However, depending upon the number of teams participating; teams may receive more than one bye per season.
- If a scheduling conflict arises, the team contact or representative must contact the Intramural Coordinator ASAP! The team that is forfeiting will not receive a loss if notice is given in proper time frame. The opposing team will automatically receive a win. If forfeiting team does not contact coordinator in time, they will automatically receive a loss. Conflicts will be handled on a case by case basis.
- A team will be eliminated from competition after two forfeits.
- In case of a team’s disqualification from the league due to forfeit, a maximum of 1 player from the eliminated team may be picked up by another team. This holds true only through the 4th week of play (deadline for adding players to rosters). If a team is eliminated from the league due to “non-members players’ unauthorized use of the Wellness Center”, no players from the eliminated team may be picked up by another team.
Family members or friends of Intramural players who are not members of the Wellness Center may be interested in watching a game. Spectators are welcome (please no children under 18), but must sign-in at the membership desk and leave immediately following the game. Intramural guests found abusing the privilege of spectating will be asked to leave the Center. Further disciplinary action will be at the discretion of the Wellness Center Director. The team that a spectator is present to watch is responsible for their conduct and will be held responsible for their actions.
It is the responsibility of each team captain to insure that any spectator who is not a Wellness Center member leave the facility upon completion of their scheduled game. Any team whose player violates this rule through unauthorized use of the Wellness Center will be eliminated from the league.
There are risks inherent in this activity. As with all other endeavors associated with being an MUSC student, each player is responsible for themselves and any medical expenses incurred due to an injury. Students are advised to carry their student ID and health insurance card to games in the case they need to go to Emergency Services at MUSC or another hospital.
