Players can sign up for Intramurals as a team or free agent.

If you’re registering a team, you’ll need to identify a team captain.

The team captain is our main point on contact that the league office communicates with for any league specific information.

Some of the duties of the team captain include:

  • Ensure all players are on the team roster and no INELIGIBLE players take the field of play.
  • Ensure all players are aware of the specific rules of the sport they are playing.
  • Ensure all players are aware of the team schedule and other league resources found on IMLeagues.
  • Ensure all players attend Protest & Appeals when ejected from games or receive major disciplinary action.
  • Ensure all players team spectators understand that alcohol is prohibited on all fields of play and no one is allowed to play while under the influence of alcohol or any illicit drugs.
  • Ensure that all referees and other participants are treated with respect.

All other captain information including: captain's quiz, rule books, schedules, stats an standings can be found on IMLeagues.

If you’re registering as a free agent, we will place you on a team of fellow free agent’s.

Free Agents are individuals that have registered to a sport/division. We take all the Free Agents for all the different sports and divisions and create teams that are solely Free Agent players. Each Free agent team is denoted with an "x-" in front of their team name (i.e "X-Spain" or "X-Blue Jays").

All other information about your free agent team including: rule books, schedules, stats an standings can be found on IMLeagues.

What COVID-19 protocols are currently in place?

Masking requirements extend past May 1st at the University of Guelph

April 19, 2022 – Based on the increasing number of cases in the province and to curb the spread of COVID-19, the University of Guelph will keep its mask requirement in place beyond May 1st.  Masks will continue to be required indoors in all U of G managed facilities until further notice.  This includes the Guelph Gryphons Athletics Centre, Gryphon Field House, Gryphon Centre Arena, and the Football Pavilion. 

All members and visitors are required to wear a face mask at all times while in any Department of Athletics building. This includes in changerooms and dressing rooms.  Masks may only be removed when physical activity starts or you arrive at your activity location and must be put back on as soon as the activity ends or when you are exiting your activity location.   For details about what this means in specific areas of our facility, view details here.

All members and visitors are expected to arrive on campus prepared with their own mask.  Facility points of entry may not be able to provide you with a mask.  Masks can be purchased at the campus bookstore or at Gryph’s Locker.    

Proof of vaccination and daily screening after May 1

As announced in March, U of G’s COVID-19 vaccination policy and daily screening requirements will be paused as of May 1. The University may reinstate these requirements at any time and with little notice.

 

 

Are Gender Neutral/Universal change rooms available?

Universal Change Rooms are available for anyone looking for a non-gender specific space.

Will daily health attestation still be required?

Yes. Everyone coming to the University of Guelph campus must complete the U of G Covid Screening Form, every time they come. Please do not come to campus if you fail or receive a RED X. 
You can access the Screening Form at https://uoguel.ph/COVID19screening or through the Safe Gryphon app available from the App Store for iPhones or Google Play for Android.
The Screening Form includes a link to the Ontario government’s COVID Self-Assessment Tool (Assessment Tool). Anyone who attends the University Locations without completing the Screening Form or who falsely reports the results of the Assessment Tool or does not comply with the University’s COVID-19 safety practices will not be permitted at any University Locations. Some permit holders use a screening tool provided by the association they belong to. These must be approved by Athletics & Recreation and if approved, are acceptable to be used for daily health screening requirements.

Can I still access the Fitness Centre if I live off-campus?

Yes! Any UofG student that has purchased the NRG Pass can access our Fitness Centre. We are also open for community/staff/faculty individuals that have purchased the NRG Pass.

Can varsity players be on my team?

Varsity Athletes in a return to train scenario are still considered varsity athletes and continue to be ineligible for intramural sports of the same sport they play.

Varsity players may NOT take part in Intramural competition in the sport they play intercollegiate, players who quit or have left the intercollegiate team are not allowed in their respective sports until the FOLLOWING ACADEMIC YEAR after they have quit or their eligibility expires.

Why do I need a valid university of guelph student card or athletics membership card every game?

To remain consistent and to be fair to all participants, other forms of photo ID are NOT accepted. It is the only way we can truly know that you are a valid University of Guelph or Department of Athletics member paying membership fees. Requiring valid IDs is consistent to gain access to the Athletics Centre, Library and Guelph Transit. We are trying to stay CONSISTENT by enforcing the same procedures in all areas.

How many players does our team need to avoid a default?
