Rules and Regulations
Informed Consent to Participate
Participation in Duke Campus Recreation Intramurals could result in physical injury to a participant; which could consist of serious and/or fatal injuries. Duke University and the Duke Campus Recreation Department assume no responsibility for injuries received during intramural participation. Participation in Intramurals is voluntary and involves inherent risk. All participants will be required to acknowledge and accept the terms of a waiver of participation when signing up for a team and when playing intramurals.
Alcohol and Drug Policy
The possession and use of alcohol or any other illegal drugs is prohibited at and during any intramural sports activity by participants or spectators; they will not be allowed on site. Any participant suspected to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be asked to leave the facility, and the team will risk forfeiting the game. Each team and its Captain will be responsible for assisting in the enforcement of this policy for its team members and spectators. Violators can be subject to removal from their team and the league, and, in addition, may also be removed from all sports for the semester. Violators can also be subject to disciplinary action in accordance with Duke University policy.
Inclement Weather Policy
The Intramural Office will make all decisions concerning the cancellation of games based on inclement weather no later than 4:00pm on a daily basis when Intramural contests are scheduled to be played. Teams should not assume that games will be cancelled due to rain or the possibility of a storm. An email will be sent out to the teams and players scheduled to play if a cancellation is to be made.
Roster Additions & Duke ID Card or Picture Identification
All participants must present picture identification prior to a game in order to check-in and participate in an Intramural game. In addition, all participants must be on the team roster prior to game time. Roster additions are allowed each day up until 4:00pm for games being played that night.
Team Names & Logos
With the use of IMLeagues all teams have the ability to create their own team names and add a team logo to represent their team. The Intramural Office reserves the right to change or remove any team name or logo that is inappropriate or offensive to participants.
Pennies will be provided for all teams for each sport offered within the Intramural Program; although, teams are permitted to wear their own uniforms. Self-provided uniforms must have a number on the front and/or back of the shirt or jersey (although both front and back of the shirt is preferred, one side of the shirt is acceptable). The Intramural Program reserves the right to disallow the use of shirts or jerseys due to improper artwork, names, or sayings.
