firstname.lastname@example.org to register your team. Registration must take place during the dates indicated on
schedule page, which is also on the website (http://www.utsa.edu/recreation/intramurals)
Online scheduling will be instant scheduling, meaning teams will be able to select preferred playing dates
and times. For the most part, teams will be able to play on the exact time they selected. However, these
times are subject to change at the discrepancy of the Intramural Department based on demand and
uneven leagues. This system will allow for teams to decide online on times when they are able to play.
IM Online- Registration and Scheduling System
The UTSA Campus Recreation Intramural Department utilizes a program called IM Online. All sport
registrations will go through this program. The directions below describe how participants will access and
register through this site. It is important that you keep your username and password because you can use
them throughout the semester to register for sports. This is free service.
Also, through this program you will not only be registering your team, you will also be choosing the day
and time that your team plays from the listed available times. With this in mind it is important that you
register early in order to get a time and day that work for you and your team. Once you select a time, you
are locked into that spot. If for some reason you need to change your time, you must unregister and then
re-register in the new time spot. Times listed are the ONLY times available.
Team rosters can be added both online and at the game site during the season. Please remember that
even if you enter your team's roster online, each player will still need to present their valid UTSA ID in

A. Team Sportsmanship Rating
UTSA Campus Recreation’s sportsmanship rating policy has been developed to protect the safety and
equity of all participants and those affiliated with supervising our events.
The Team Sportsmanship Rating is an objective means for assessing the behavior of teams
through an Intramural Sport season.
The Intramural staff on duty will grade all teams on their display of sportsmanship before,
during and after each game. Failure by the Intramural Staff to give a grade will result in a “A”.
Participating in Intramural Sports is NOT a right, it is a privilege. Therefore, the Intramural
Sports program reserves the right to take away that privilege from any team or individual that
does not abide by the governing rules and regulations, as well as does not exhibit good
sportsmanship and fair play.
Two unsportsmanlike penalties on the same player will result in disqualification from the
game. The third unsportsmanlike foul by the same team results in forfeiture of the game.
(example 2 technical fouls on one player in basketball results in a player ejection, 3technical’s
fouls on a team results in a forfeit)
Any player that is ejected for any reason must come in to speak to the Assistant Director of
Campus Recreation-Intramural Sports before their next game. That player or team is not
eligible to play until doing so. Team will forfeit their ensuing game if the ejected player does
not meet with the Assistant Director. All ejections will warrant a minimum 1 game
The Intramural staff reserves the right to end any intramural contest at any point.
B. Sportsmanship Rating Criteria
“A” - Good Conduct and Sportsmanship
Team/fans cooperate fully with the supervisors and officials and show respect for opposing team
members. The Team Captain has full control of his/her teammates/fans. If the captain converses with
the officials about rule interpretations and calls he/she does so respectfully and calmly. A team
winning a game due to a forfeit will receive an “A” sportsmanship rating.
“B” - Average Conduct and Sportsmanship
Team/fans complain about some decisions and or display minor dissent. These complaints may have
been voiced verbally or non-verbally toward officials, opposing players or opposing fans. The Team
Captain exhibits major control over teammates and him/herself.
“C” - Below Average Conduct and Sportsmanship
Team/fans (on or off the playing area) show continuous or sustained verbal dissent towards officials,
supervisors, and/or the opposing team. The Team Captain exhibits minor control over teammates and
him/herself. Teams that receive one unsportsmanlike penalty or technical foul during the game will
receive no higher than a “C” rating. Each additional unsportsmanlike penalty will result in the grade
being lowered by one letter grade.
“D” - Poor Conduct and Sportsmanship
Team/fans complain excessively to officials and/or the opposing team. The Team Captain exhibits
little control over teammates and him/herself. Teams that have a player ejected will receive no higher
than a “D” rating.

Team/fans are completely uncooperative. Team Captain has no control over team, fans and/or
him/herself. Teams that have multiple players ejected, receives three unsportsmanlike penalties or

of players present at the scheduled game time will receive an “F”.
