Frequently Asked Questions
How do I register for an Intramural Sports event?
Beginning in the 2009-2010 academic year, all registration is being processed online through www.TeamSportsInfo.com
. Using TSIC, captains can form teams and individual participants can join teams. The IM Office is no longer processing paper or e-mail registrations for teams.
I am a team captain and I want to add players to my roster. How can I do this?
You can’t. With the new online registration system, individuals must register themselves in order to participate. Captains cannot add players – players are responsible for self-rostering. In order to build your roster, tell your Team Name and Division of Play to your friends, and they can add themselves to the team!
I’m an RA and I want to create a team. What should I do? Can I use hall funds to participate?
Instructions on how to register a Residence Hall team are included on the Flag Football bulletin page. Dorm teams can use Residence Hall funds to cover participation fees, but these teams must be created through the IM Office in order to avoid credit/debit card charges. Once the IM Office has created the team, players may roster themselves on the team as normal.
I missed the deadline to register a team. What should I do?
The IM Office does not guarantee participation to any late-entries. However, we will create a waiting list and add teams if possible.
I am listed on the roster for an Open A team. Can I also participate on an Open B team?
No. Participants are only allowed to compete on ONE Open team and ONE Coed team in the same “season” of an intramural event. Participation on multiple Open teams and multiple Coed teams is prohibited.
I am a graduate student hoping to play in the Open A division. Is this allowed? Why not?
Grad Open and Grad Coed leagues are created specifically for graduate students, faculty, staff, and non-student Yates members. Grad students are NOT permitted to play in other divisions unless there are no specified grad divisions for an event. Graduate divisions are purposely kept separate from undergraduate divisions for a variety of reasons, including scheduling conflicts and fairness concerns.
I am not a Yates Field House member but I want to participate in Intramurals. Is this allowed?
All intramural events in Yates Field House are limited to Field House members only. Non-members are not permitted to participate in intramurals at Yates. This policy includes part-time students who do not automatically qualify for Yates membership.
I am a guest at Yates Field House and have paid the $10 guest fee. Can I participate in Intramurals?
No. Guests of Yates members are prohibited from participation.
I want to participate for Intramurals but I don’t know anyone who has a team. What should I do?
Participants are free to register as Free Agents. In order to sign up as a Free Agent, begin the individual self-rostering process, choose your desired Division of Play, and select the Free Agent team option. Upon conclusion of the team registration period, the IM Office will contact you regarding the status of your Free Agent team.
What is the difference between an entry fee and a forfeit fee?
The entry fee is a non-refundable fee required for participation. This fee is used to cover staffing and equipment costs. The forfeit fee is a separate fee which is refundable for teams that do not forfeit any games. The forfeit fee is held as insurance against our staffing costs – if a team does not show up for a game, we still have to pay our staff. The forfeit fee is used to defray that cost.
What payment does the IM Office accept for intramural fees?
Beginning in the Fall of 2009, intramural fees are processed ONLY through credit/debit card transaction through www.TeamSportsInfo.com
. Exceptions are granted only for Residence Hall teams who are covering their fees through dorm funds. Cash, check, and GOCard are no longer acceptable forms of payment.
The intramural season is over and my team did not forfeit any games. How do I get my forfeit fee back?
At the conclusion of an intramural event, the IM Office will credit forfeit fee refunds for all teams that did not forfeit a game. Forfeit fees will be credited back to the credit/debit card account that was used for the initial fee transaction.
