INTRAMURALS


At George Fox, we believe everyone who wishes to get in the game should be given that opportunity. Our intramural program gives students an outlet for friendly competition and a forum to build relationships, foster teamwork and create memories.

A few of the sports we offer are flag football, volleyball, 3-on-3 basketball, 5-on-5 basketball, dodgeball, badminton and soccer. We also host single-day tournaments in sand volleyball, wiffle ball, and disc golf.

Please stop by the front desk in the Hadlock Student Center to see a complete list of intramurals that are being offered this semester. Sign-ups can be completed through IM Leagues or at the welcome center.

Eligibility

  • Only current George Fox University undergraduate, graduate students, and faculty/staff are allowed to participate in intramural sports.
  • Coaches are not allowed to compete in the sport that they coach.
  • Participants may only play on one team per sport.
  • Players currently on one of George Fox University’s intercollegiate team rosters are not eligible to participate in the same/similar Intramural sport/activity. Once the student-athlete’s eligibility has expired, or if they are removed from the team’s roster, they are permitted to participate, but teams may not exceed two former varsity athletes per team in the same/similar sport that they played as an intercollegiate student-athlete.

Intramurals Policies

  • To create a welcoming, inclusive and safe environment, shirts and shoes are required. Shirts must cover, at a minimum, your sides/torso, and midriff. Sports bras must be covered by a shirt of some type.
  • Individuals or teams should arrive at the designated site at least 10 minutes prior to the scheduled time of the contest. The decision to declare a contest forfeited will be made by the intramural staff on duty. A game is not officially forfeited until the staff declares a forfeit. Any game whose outcome is declared a forfeit will result in a loss being credited to the forfeiting team.
  • If a team does not have the appropriate number of players to begin a competition, they will be granted a two-minute grace period. If they still do not have the appropriate number of players to begin after three minutes, they will be forced to forfeit the game or play short a player(s).
  • Teams can add players at any point throughout the regular season, but your roster must be set before the start of playoffs. In order to add a player, they must have not played on any other team throughout the season, and have completed the registration process on IMLeagues.

Code of Conduct

  • Unsportsmanlike conduct is defined as a player, coach or spectator who, at any time while at a George Fox University intramural event, conducts himself or herself in an abusive, offensive or illegal manner. This includes but is not limited to: fighting, verbal abuse or dissent toward an official or opponent, racial or ethnic slurs, inappropriate comments or actions that may be construed as sexual harassment, profanity, intoxication, obscene gestures, flagrant and violent fouls, taunting, trash talk, cheating, throwing or abusing equipment, and any acts of deceit.
  • The intramural department takes sportsmanship very seriously. Sportsmanship policies will be strictly enforced to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all participants and intramural staff. Actions that are dangerous and/or conduct that is detrimental to the intramural program or harmful to others will not be tolerated and are grounds for suspension from further participation in all intramural sports activities.
