Important Information

Expectations

All participants are expected to exhibit good sportsmanship, fair play and abide by all rules of the intramural activity. Remember that it is a “privilege” to participate in intramurals, don't let it be taken away from you.

Captain's Meeting

There is a mandatory captain’s meeting for every league. Teams MUST have a representative at the meeting ON TIME. Ideally, the representative is the captain of the team since important policies, procedures will be covered. Teams who fail to have a representative present will receive a default and may be removed from the league. Information will be emailed to each team captain.

 

 

Team Name Policy

Horns Recreation respects the rights of all students, staff and faculty, to learn, work and exercise in an environment free of discriminatory, inappropriate, and disrespectful conduct or communication. Therefore, Horns Recreation reserves the right to disallow any team name that we feel is unacceptable.

When choosing your team name, please ensure it is chosen in good taste and does not promote intolerance or degrade individuals or groups. We ask that all team names not contain profanity, racial slurs, sexual innuendo, or other words that may be offensive or otherwise degrading in nature.

In the event we choose to remove a team name we will change the team name to the captain’s name until a suitable replacement name is provided. Once the league begins your team name is still subject to change if any concerns are raised over its intended nature.
