All students, faculty and staff of Lone Star College are eligible to participate in Intramural Sports. The intramural sports staff will assume responsibility for investigation of the eligibility of all participants upon request. A college ID or membership card will be required during all activities. In order for an individual to be considered eligible for intramural competition, his/her name and student ID number must appear on the team roster. Changes in a roster must be made at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled game. There will be no roster changes allowed during any playoff or championship game. Players who have participated with one intramural team are not eligible to play for another team in that sport. Exception: Individuals may play in both the men's or women's program plus a co-rec team.
Any person participating in an intramural activity found to be ineligible will be suspended from that activity for the remainder of the season. Any team using an ineligible player shall forfeit all games in which the ineligible player participated. All players participating in a game/match using an ineligible player, with an assumed name, shall be suspended from that activity for the remainder of the season and placed on probation the remainder of the school year.
A team will be dropped from competition upon announcement of their second forfeit. The winning team must record its lineup for the forfeited game and must have at least a minimum of the official number of players. If neither team or individual shows for a game, both will be charged with a loss by forfeit.
Protests involving rule interpretations will be considered, but judgement calls will not receive consideration. Protests must be made on the field or court immediately following the incident in question. The game is suspended and the Intramural Supervisor will be called to the game. Play should not continue until a final decision is made. Protests concerning eligibility must be made before, during or immediately after the contest in question. A ruling will then be made by the Intramural Sports Director the following day.
