Rules & Regulations


Spring 2021 Intramural Sports Handbook


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. The program is supervised by student leaders who serve as 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, Intramural Sports Coordinator .

Participation in Pitt Intramural Sports could result in physical injury to a participant. The University of Pittsburgh, the Department of Student Affairs and the Department of Campus Recreation assume no responsibility for injuries received during intramural participation.

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.

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.

All persons planning to participate in the Intramural program are encouraged to undergo an annual physical examination. The Department of Campus Recreation reserves the right to require proof of such examinations prior to participating in selected activities.
