First Come First Served!

What are a captain's responsibilities?

The captain is a vital link between the Recreational Sports Office and your intramural team. Only those who are interested, have the time, and are willing to be responsible should volunteer to be a captain.

A team captain is responsible for the following:

  • Register your team at www.imleagues.com/humboldt
  • Pay a forfeit fee ($10) anytime the team forfeits before their next scheduled game. (Any team member can pay the fee, the captain is ultimately responsible to ensure that it is paid in a timely manner.)
  • Be thoroughly familiar with all rules.
  • The sportsmanship of your team.
  • Notify team of date, time, and location of contests.

How do I register a team?

  1. Pick up intramural registration guidelines at the Recreational Sports Office (RWC 101) during the first week of classes.
  2. You will then go to www.imleagues.com/humboldt to register your team.
  3. Take and pass the captain's quiz on imleagues. 
  4. Once we receive notice that you've passed the quiz, your team will be APPROVED.

Community teams/players

Each individual community member will pay a fee of $30 per semester to participate.

What is the sportsmanship policy?

The intramural sportsmanship policy at HSU is strictly enforced in order to uphold the dignity and respect of student officials and participants. The sportsmanship rating system works as follows:

Each game is worth five (5) sportsmanship points. At the conclusion of each league game, the official(s) will rate the team using the guidelines outlined below:

  • 5 points: A team thoroughly respects the official(s) calls and shows sportsmanship to the opposing players.
  • 4 points: A team or team member fails to respect the official(s) calls and the opposing team in a minor way.
  • 3 points: A team or team member receives a technical foul, yellow card, or shows poor sportsmanship to the official(s) or opposing team. Forfeits also result in a 3.
  • 2 points: A team or team member is ejected from a game for poor sportsmanship, receives two (2) technical fouls, or receives a red card.
  • 1 point: More issues after an ejection.
  • 0 points: The game is called due to sportsmanship issues.
A team must end the reagular season with an average sportsmanship score of 4 in order to qualify for postseason play.

Who is eligible to participate?

All HSU students are eligible to participate in the intramural program at no cost.  Faculty/staff members can participate in the intramural program with a fee of $15. Community members will be required to pay a $30 fee to participate.

Before every game you will be required to stop in the intramural office and present a picture I.D. and check out a jersey. At the end of your game return your jersey and collect your I.D. If you do not have a picture I.D. you will not be eligible to play. NO EXCEPTIONS.

What if I don't have a team?

JOIN THE FREE AGENT LIST ONLINE at: www.imleagues.com/humboldt

Click on the sport(s) and league(s) that you are interested in. Click on "Register/Sign-up." Click on "Free Agent." Fill out the form and post your listing.

If you would like to play on a team and do not have a team to play on, don't worry. You may sign up on the Free Agent List and teams who need extra players will contact people from the Free Agent List. You can also register yourself as a manager and pull a list of names from the free agent list and organize your own team. Usually the Rec Sports Office does not facilitate this, although we will help you with the process.

Who can play in playoff tournaments?

Following the round robin league schedule, every team with a sportsmanship average of 4 or higher, and no more than two forfeits, will advance to the playoff tournament. All players must play in at least two league games to be eligible for playoffs. If you play on two teams in the same league you will have to choose a team to play with in the playoffs. The first team you play with will be your tournament team, no exceptions.

Make sure to check in at the Intramural Office (RWC 101) before every game in order to receive credit for participating.

What if my team can't play a scheduled game?

If you notify the Recreational Sports Office ASAP and no later than the day before that your team is unable to attend your scheduled game, we will notify the team you are scheduled to play and inform them that you will not be there. You will also not have your sportsmanship score lowered or owe a forfeit fee.

If you fail to have enough players to play a game, your team will receive a forfeit, you will be required to pay a $10 forfeit fee immediately, and you will get a 3 for a sportsmanship score.

If your team receives three forfeits, you will be eliminated from the league.
