RULES & REGULATIONS

Organization and Administration

The Intramural Program is under the jurisdiction and resides under the Division of Student Affairs. The Program is administered by the Intramural Coordinator, Program Assistant and student staff (sports managers and officials). The program is supervised by student leaders who server as officials.

 

Game Officials

Individuals are needed to serve as paid officials in selected sports. Officials are paid on either a game or hourly basis. If you’re interested in a challenging part-time job with excellent pay potential, contact the Campus Recreation office in 3034 Baierl Student Recreation Center, or e-mail Bill Wallace at wwallace@pitt.edu.

 

Informed Consent to Participate

Participation in Pitt Intramural Sports could result in physical injury to a participant; which could consist of serious and/or fatal injuries. The University of Pittsburgh, Pitt’s Student Affairs Department and Pitt’s Campus Recreation Department assume no responsibility for injuries received during intramural participation. Participation in Intramurals is voluntary and involves inherent risk. All participants will be required to acknowledge and accept the terms of an agreement to participate prior to competition.

 

Alcohol and Drug Policy

The possession and use of alcohol or any other illegal drugs is prohibited at and during any intramural sports activity by participants or spectators; they will not be allowed on site. Any participant suspected to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be asked to leave the facility, and the team will risk forfeiting the game. Each team and its Captain will be responsible for assisting in the enforcement of this policy for its team members and spectators. Violators can be subject to removal from their team and the league, and, in addition, may also be removed from all sports for the semester. Violators can also be subject to disciplinary action in accordance with the University of Pittsburgh’s policy.

 

Insurance

The Campus Recreation Department does not insure its participants. All students are encouraged to avail themselves of the relatively inexpensive program offered through the Student Health Service.

 

Health Examination

All persons planning to participate in the program should undergo an annual physical examination. The Campus Recreation Department reserves the right to require proof of such examinations or to require evidence of a Doctor’s examination prior to participating in selected, special activities.
