Policies and Procedures

  • If a team is responsible for being involved in a cheating incident, the entire team may be placed on probation. Depending on the severity of the incident, the team may be ineligible for playoffs or may be removed from the league entirely. A forfeit will be given to any team for a game in which an ineligible player participated.
  • A forfeit by a suspended player’s team will not count as a game served for an individual’s suspension. The participant will still have to serve the necessary game(s) to fulfill their suspension.
  • Suspensions will be served in the sport in which the offense occurred. While under suspension, individuals are not allowed to participate in any intramural sports and tournaments.
  • In cases occurring late in the sport season, semester or academic year, a suspension may carry over into the next sport, semester, or intramural/school year.
  • After reinstatement, anyone involved in a second offense may be suspended from competition for one full calendar year (365 days). Depending on the severity of the incident(s), the individual(s) may be banned from all programs and services offered by UConn Recreation. In addition to the consequences imposed by the department, these incidents will be sent to Community Standards to determine if a violation of The Student Code of Conduct has occurred.
  • All suspended players may request a meeting with the Coordinator of Intramurals and Tournaments to discuss their case. It is each individual’s responsibility to contact our office at 486-8126 for a meeting.
