Who can be a captain?
Anyone who is a fee-paying member for the Student Recreation Center (which includes most VSU students). There is no other requirement for being a captain, however we do encourage the most responsible members of a team to fill this role, as they are in charge of dispersing information to the rest of their team.

How much are forfeit bond fees?
Most sports are $20, however some sports vary, and may be less or 
more.

What is the purpose of a forfeit bond fee?
The purpose is to reduce the number of forfeits that occur during a season.

Back to top

What constitutes as a forfeit?
There are various ways a team can forfeit. Missing the captain’s meeting is the first. Other ways include: not having enough players at game time, receiving too many unsportsmanlike conducts during a game, having a player ejected during the playoffs, or simply not showing up to a game.

What constitutes a default?
When a team knows they will not be able to make a scheduled contest, they may  speak with our office staff about defaulting their game, which is less harsh than a forfeit.

Back to top

What are the fee deductions for forfeits and defaults?
A forfeit is $10 and a default is $5.

Why can I not use my driver’s license to sign in for a game?
Valdosta State University requires students to have their identification card with them at all times when on campus, which can be found on page 158 of the Student Handbook.

How do individual/duel sports operate?
The way we run individual/duel sports is by providing a play-by-date for participants. We e-mail out all the necessary information to team representatives and they contact their weekly opponent to play before the date listed. Not at the day listed. The purpose of the date is to make sure everyone has their scores in by that time. Individual/duel sports are self-officiated games, as our intramural staff does not supervise these contests, with the exception of one day tournaments.

Am I guaranteed games if I sign up a team?
It varies based on interest. Some sports may not fill up their leagues, and in this case we do our best to accommodate teams. If nothing can be done we will return the forfeit bond to the captain.

What happens to forfeit bond money that is not returned?
The money is placed into our Sports Officials Association (SOA) account. It is used primarily for officials who travel to extramural tournaments or officiating clinics. The money is also used to purchase new sports equipment and stay up to date with our sports.

What is the purpose of the sportsmanship rating?
We are encouraging fair and fun play in intramural sports. Our mission is to allow participants to enjoy their time in friendly competition in a safe and comfortable atmosphere. Sportsmanship is a way to promote that type of behavior.

How does a team make the playoffs?
In order to make the playoffs teams must maintain a 2.5 sportsmanship rating or higher.

Back to top

How many games am I guaranteed to play?
With the exception of extreme circumstances we try and schedule teams for 4 – 6 regular season games. If teams have that 2.5 sportsmanship rating they will be guaranteed at least one extra game.
