Beginning Fall 2023, all UNLV and NSHE Students participating in Campus Rec Intramural Sports leagues will have two pricing options to cover individual league fees/registration.

UNLV/NSHE Student Individual Cost $15 Per League (Each Semester) $25 All Leagues (Semester All-Access Pass)


For all Intramural Sports events, the program assumes absolutely no responsibility for injuries related to participation. It is the individual’s responsibility to ascertain whether their health may be adversely affected by participating in any physical activity. All participants are recommended to obtain personal health insurance.


A cancellation is defined as a team representative contacting Intramural Sports Professional Staff that they will be unable to make a scheduled game with at least 24 hours business notice.

A forfeit is defined as either;

  • A team representative contacting Intramural Sports Professional Staff with less than 24 hours business notice that their team will not be able to make a scheduled game. This will be referred to as a “standard forfeit”.
  • A team not showing up to a scheduled game with no prior communication made to Intramural Sports Professional Staff. A “no show forfeit” will result in a Sportsmanship Rating deduction with score of1.

All teams in an Intramural Sports League will be entitled to one cancellation per event. A cancellation will come with no penalty to the team although the team may end up playing one-two less games than other teams in the league depending on scheduling availability. All teams that forfeit will be subject to a $25 forfeit fee if they would like to be reinstated in the league. While this forfeit fee is optional, teams will not be scheduled again unless the forfeit fee is paid and any games that were already scheduled at the time of the forfeit for the team in question will be cancelled unless the forfeit fee is paid with 48 hours of the team’s next scheduled game. A combination of 2 cancellations and forfeits will result in automatic removal of the team from the specific Intramural League in question.

  • Example of a cancellation - Team A is scheduled for a basketball game Thursday, 10/10 at 9 p.m. Team A captain contacts Intramural Professional Staff on Monday, 10/7 saying they will not be able to make the scheduled game.
  • Example of a standard forfeit - Team B is scheduled for a football game Wednesday, 9/20 at 7 p.m. Team B captain contacts Intramural Professional Staff on the day of the game at 2 p.m. saying they will not have enough players to play. Team B will need to pay the $25 forfeit fee to remain in the league, but their Sportsmanship Rating will not be effected.
  • Example of a no show forfeit - Team C is scheduled for an indoor soccer game on Tuesday, 11/4 at 8 p.m. Not enough Team C players are present at 8:10 to play the game, resulting in a no show forfeit. Team C will need to pay the $25 forfeit fee to remain in the league and receive a Sportsmanship Rating of 1.
  1. Through the course of a season, a team will be rated during each game and given a Sporting Conduct Score for each game – subsequently adjusting the team’s Sporting Conduct Average (SCA). Teams will not inherit an SCA from any previous season or year.
    1. For every game played, Intramural Sports Supervisors and Officials will evaluate each team’s sporting conduct. This includes, but is not limited to- arriving to the game site on time, cooperating with officials, acts of fighting and/or verbal harassment, or any other infractions regarding the rules of fair play.
    2. Each team will be given a whole number sports rating of 1-5 after each game with 5 being the best sporting conduct score.
    3. Each team is responsible for checking and signing for their sporting conduct rating after each game. Failure to sign the sporting conduct rating infraction form forfeits the right to appeal any deduction for that game. Appeals must be made in writing to the Intramural Sports Staff within 48 hours of the contest in question (Note: the administration reserves the right to increase or decrease a penalty at their discretion).
    4. If a team attains a Sporting conduct score of 1 during any one game, the team’s Captain must meet with the Intramural Sports Staff prior to their next contest or face expulsion from the league.
    5. Each sport will have a minimum SCA of 3 required to be considered playoff eligible. Any team that falls below that average will not be eligible for the playoffs – regardless of the team’s league standing.
    6. Sporting Conduct Averages will carry over into any tournament play. A team must maintain a 3 SRA during the tournament to remain eligible. Failure to do so will result in a forfeit.
    7. The intramural department reserves the right to make an executive decision on a team’s playoff eligibility.

Each sport is separated into at least one of four league types: Men’s (M), Women’s (W), Co-Rec (CR), and/or Open (O).

All league offerings will have a mandatory Captain's Meeting. This meeting will be held in the SRWC Wet Classroom and is required in addition to the registration process on IMLeagues. Any teams not represented at the Captain's Meeting by a team member will result in a reduction to a team’s sportsmanship score unless prior accommodations have been made.
