The Team Captain/Manager is the contact person between the team and Campus Recreation. A dependable manager is necessary for a team or an organization to compete successfully in Intramural Sports. Matters concerning the team are communicated to the manager and he/she in turn is responsible for passing the information on to the team members. Information sent out by Campus Recreation should be read carefully and followed by appropriate action. Each manager should also see that the members of his/her organization are given the opportunity to read and interpret all pertinent communications. To expedite communication, Campus Recreation has developed this web site for Intramural Managers. This web site gives all the necessary information to manager needs to effectively do the job. Managers and players are urged to bookmark this site and use it frequently.
- Submitting entries on time.
- Attend scheduled captain's meetings for major team sports. Captain's meeting information will be provided at the time of registration. Captains may represent only one team per division (Men's, Women's, Co-Rec). For example, a fraternity captain may only represent ONE fraternity team if multiple teams are registered. However, the fraternity captain may represent his ONE fraternity team and ONE co-rec team. Once a captain has attended a meeting, s/he will be considered "certified' and will not be required to attend any subsequent meetings for the remainder of the semester. Captains must be 're-certified' each academic year.
