Men’s and Women’s Intramural Sports

You must be a full-time undergraduate student, a full-time graduate student, or full or part-
time employees of Belmont University to participate in the intramural sports program. Men
may only play in men’s leagues and women may only play in women’s leagues. If there is
not a sport available for men or women to play in, they may play in the opposite gender’s
sport if it is acceptable to all participants, or if special permission has been granted by
Intramural Sports.

Co-Rec Intramural Sports

The co-rec events are open to all full and part-time faculty and staff and students and are
governed by the same sportsmanship rules and regulations of other intramural sports. Check
with the intramural staff for specific rules, regulations and eligibility questions.

Recognized Organizations

All members of Greek organizations and other officially recognized groups must be in good
standing with the Division of Student Affairs and Student Engagement and Leadership
Development. Intramural Sports will utilize official organization rosters filed with the SELD
office and it is up to each individual organization to ensure that only registered members are
participating on intramural teams.

Participant Responsibilities

The Department of Fitness and Recreation supports and enforces Belmont’s
Community Commitments, as well as all policies and expectations found in the
Bruin Guide. Any behavior or action that is not in consonance with the
University mission or violates principles, policies or statements within the
Commitments or Bruin Guide, will be handled in the appropriate manner. If
necessary, individuals may be reported to the Office of Student Conduct and
Academic Integrity for further action.

Sportsmanship

At the conclusion of each contest the intramural staff will assign a grade to each team that
participated. Grades could be A-F and at the end of the season will be averaged to create the
team’s sportsmanship “GPA”. Forfeits and defaults will result in an “F” for the team.

Conduct Toward Intramural Staff

Any participant, coach or fan that shoves, pushes, bumps, brushes, punches, spits, throws
equipment or verbally attacks an intramural staff member or official in any manner will
automatically be suspended from all intramural programs for the remainder of their academic
and/or professional career or from any alumni events at Belmont University. If necessary,
further disciplinary actions may be pursued and participant(s) may be referred to the Director of
Student Conduct and Academic Integrity.

 

Director’s Rule

The director reserves the right to put into effect any new ruling pertaining to intramural sports
and unsportsmanlike behavior and fair play and the safety of all participants. The assistant
director can also take any individual and their actions to the Belmont University Student
Disciplinary Committee for review.

Belmont University ID

All Intramural participants MUST have a current and valid Belmont University Identification
Card. If a participant’s BU ID card is not legible (photo or name) or does not have a student ID
number that corresponds with his or her team’s roster that participant must have a form of photo
identification in order to be allowed to participate. Proper identification is needed to be shown at
all games and if you do not have the proper identification, you will not be allowed to participate
until you obtain the proper identification. If you use an improper identification card, you will be
suspended from all intramurals for one year.

Free Agents

Free agents are individuals that are not members of a team but would like to join one. The
Intramural Office will make a list available to prospective players and teams but will not place a
person on a team. The intramural staff will furnish interested teams with player information. If
there are enough players, a “free agent” team will be organized and entered into a league or
tournament.
