For outdoor activities, how do I find out if my game is canceled?

Managers will be contacted a minimum of one hour before their scheduled games or managers can call (607) 274-1063.

Why does Ithaca College use the rules they do for Intramural Sports?

Ithaca College uses the guidelines and rules that have been established by a national governing body for each sport. These rules have been adopted to provide the safest and fairest play available while also allowing the participants to have fun. The national governing body for each sport is listed in the rules.

How do I sign up for an activity as a team? Individual?

To sign up, go to https://recreation.ithaca.edu/DivisionRegistration. From there, you can register a team as a captain, find your captain's team on the site and join it, or sign up as a free agent and request joining a team. If there is any trouble signing up, feel free to either email intramurals@ithaca.edu or call (607) 274-1063.

What happens if our team cannot make a scheduled game?

If your team cannot make a game and it is before 5 pm the day before your scheduled game (unless is it Sunday in which it must be before 5 pm on Friday, you can email intramurals@ithaca.edu, call (607) 274-1063, or you can "default" the game at https://recreation.ithaca.edu/ to avoid having to pay a forfeit fee. If it is after 5 pm of the day before your scheduled game, please email intramurals@ithaca.edu, call (607) 274-1063, or you can "forfeit" the game at https://recreation.ithaca.edu/ to let us know you will have to forfeit the game and the captain will have to pay a $20 forfeit fee. The captain must pay the fee before your next scheduled game or else the fee will be $25. If the captain does not pay the $25 fee by the team's last scheduled game, the team will not be able to play in the playoffs and each member of the team will be charged a $10 fee on their Fusion IM account.

Forfeit fees are used to discourage teams from "just not showing up". The forfeit bond pays for the cost of Intramural Sports officials and supervisors when a team doesn’t show.
