Get into your game and compete with other students! They are often scheduled over shorter period of time (a couple days rather than weeks) set up in round robin format with a knockout tournament at the conclusion. The recreational and competitive events offered by the Intramurals Sports program are available to students, staff and faculty at UNLV. Not all events/sports are the same, and not all events are for every person. Learn more about each sport/event below. Not all sports are offered every semester/year.


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).

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.
  • Excellent Conduct and Sportsmanship – Team members cooperate fully with the officials and opposing team members. The captain calmly converses with officials about rule interpretation and calls. The captain also has full control of his/her teammates.
  • Good Conduct and Sportsmanship – Team members verbally complain about some decisions made by the officials and/or show minor dissension but overall, the captain has control over his/her teammates and/or spectators. Teams that receive a penalty for conduct (ex: unsportsmanlike penalties, technical fouls, yellow cards, etc) will receive no higher than a “4” rating.
  • Average Conduct and Sportsmanship – Team displays verbal dissent towards officials and/or the opposing team. Captain exhibits minor control over his/her teammates and/or spectators. Teams receiving multiple conduct penalties (ex: unsportsmanlike penalties, technical fouls, yellow cards, etc) will receive no higher than a “3” rating.
  • Poor Conduct and Sportsmanship – Teams constantly comment to the officials and/or opposing team from the court and/or sidelines. The team captain exhibits little or no control over teammates, spectators, and/or himself/herself. A team that has one player ejected will receive no higher than a “2” rating.
  • Unacceptable Conduct and Sportsmanship – Team is completely uncooperative. Captain has no control over teammates and/or himself/herself. Any team causing a game to be forfeited by unsportsmanlike behavior, or receives multiple player ejections shall receive a “1” rating. The captain of any team receiving a “1” rating (during the regular season) must make an appointment with the Intramural Sports Coordinator before further play will be permitted.

*Spectator conduct can have a negative impact on a team’s Sportsmanship Rating.
