A major objective of the FHSU Intramural program is that
good sportsmanship is vital to the conduct of every contest.
In order to maintain this philosophy, each participant is
accountable for his/her actions and each team manager/captain
is responsible for the actions of the team members as well
as team spectators.
Schedules will be made available to all team members the
day after an activity Captain's Meeting. Schedules may be
picked up during regular working hours at the Im-Rec Office.
The Intramural Department WILL NOT be responsible for sending
out schedules or notifying captains of schedule changes
unless changes occur within 24 hours of the particular contest.
All matches and games are scheduled for a
specific hour and date. Any individual or team who fails
to appear 10 minutes after scheduled time automatically
forfeits that contest.
The Im-Rec Office holds found items for 2 weeks. After 2
weeks, items are turned over to the general collection containment
device (trash can). In the event the item is of value to
others, after the two weeks waiting period, the item may
be donated to the FHSU Im-Rec department for use as the
directors sees fit.
The success of the Intramural Sports program is contingent
upon the quality of its sports officials and participants.
Intramural contests are officiated by fellow Fort Hays State
students. They are not professionals and are paid modestly
for the service they perform. They deserve and expect your
cooperation, respect and sportsmanlike behavior. We train
the student workers to perform these jobs and we expect
them to officiate to the best of their ability. We invite
you to apply for the student officials' job available in
our Intramural Sports Program.
Intramural Championship t-shirts will be presented to winning
teams. Shorts will go to winners of post season tournaments.
The team captain of the championship team is required to
turn in a list of shirt sizes to the Intramural Director
after the championship playoff games.
Top finishers in Individual/ Dual sports will receive t-shirts.
All alcoholic beverages and all tobacco products are not
permitted at any Intramural event. Violators will be asked
to leave the playing area. Teams are responsible for the
action of their teammates and fans.
A MANDATORY Captain's Meeting to be attended by all captains
of team sports, will be held before the league is scheduled.
Rules and schedules will be gone over at this time (please
check Im-Rec sports book, or the Schedules page for scheduled
meeting times). Any team not having a representative at
these meetings will be fined $10.00. Persons not on a team
but looking for one may attend these meetings also. All
meetings are open to everyone.
A defaulted game form may be completed if your team is unable
to play a game which is scheduled. The game will still be

be considered a forfeit. Forms are available in the Im-Rec
All protests must be submitted in writing to the Intramural
