Sportsmanship is a major part of the philosophy of the Intramural program at Clayton State University and is vital to the success of each and every program we offer to the University community. Intramural Sports staff reserves the right to warn, penalize, and/or eject participants or teams for poor displays of sportsmanship. The Department of Recreation & Wellness will rule on further penalties to be issued. All affected participants must report to the Assistant Director of Recreation & Wellness before their next scheduled game before they are eligible to be reinstated to play.
All intramural participants will be subject to the IM SPORTSMANSHIP POLICY! Your team’s sportsmanship will be evaluated each game by your officials and scorekeepers on a four point scale (four being the best and one being the worst). Ejections, verbal abuse to the official, disruptive behavior by the team or its fans equates to low sportsmanship scores. Additional points will be subtracted at the conclusion of the game if a team is found to be responsible for excessive trash left at game sites. This includes but is not limited to empty water bottles, cups, and trash. If a team has a sportsmanship rating average lower than 3.0 at the end of the season, that team will not be allowed to participate in the playoffs.
