Spring 2020 Intramural Leagues Have Been Canceled

March 13, 2020

In order to protect the health, wellness, and safety of our faculty, staff, and students, the department of Campus Recreation at the University of Nebraska Medical Center has made the decision to suspend all Campus Recreation functions that have been scheduled to take place now through April 30, 2020. This means that all leagues, tournaments, and rentals scheduled through April 30 at the Center for Healthy Living or with equipment from the Center for Healthy Living have been canceled, effective immediately. This decision has been as part of a campus-wide effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and safety of our campus community.

All intramural team captains will be entitled to a prorated refund of their team’s registration fee. Captains, you may contact me by email at alec.carstens@unmc.edu with any questions that you and your teammates might have.

At this time, the Center for Healthy Living will remain open during its regular hours, and all fitness classes will proceed as scheduled. As a precaution, we have added additional wipe dispensers in the locker rooms, and we are urging all members to practice good hygiene while at the gym.

Regards,

Alec Carstens

Spring 2020 League Format

The Spring 2020 Intramural season will last a maximum of 8 weeks. Those 8 weeks will be made up of a 6-week regular season phase followed by a 2-week playoff phase. During the 6-week regular season phase, teams will play each other in round-robin format. Teams are also guaranteed 1 BYE week to accommodate spring breaks. Teams will qualify for the playoff phase based on their regular season results. The playoffs will consist of a single-elimination postseason tournament. The winning teams from each playoff tournament will be awarded intramural t-shirts.


About Intramural Leagues

Intramural leagues are athletic competitions organized for UNMC and Nebraska Medicine faculty/staff/students and their families (parents/spouses/children). Teams may also have a limited number of non-UNMC/Nebraska Medicine individuals. 

Games in a given league are played on the same day every week for a period of weeks listed as the season length. A league usually consists of a round-robin (or regular season) phase followed by a post-season playoff tournament. If there is a tournament, the regular season phase will determine seeding for the playoff tournament. The winners of the tournament will be named league champions and will be awarded the intramural championship t-shirts at no additional cost to the winning teams.

Who May Participate?

Registration for intramural leagues is open to UNMC/Nebraska Medicine staff, faculty, students volunteers, retirees, and the spouse/parents/children (aged 16 or older) of anyone who belongs to any of the previously mentioned groups.

In addition, individuals who don't belong to any of the previously mentioned groups may participate. The number of non-UNMC/Nebraska Medicine individuals allowed on a team is subject to sport-specific limitations. The exact numbers for each sport/league may be found on the sport-specific pages of the Intramural website.


Competitive Divisions

In order to keep leagues competitive while still being inclusive of players at all different skill and ability levels, several leagues are split into more than one division. Teams will only play other teams that elect to play in the same division. The divisions are described below.

Elite (Division 1) - The Elite division is the most competitive division for intramural leagues at UNMC. Participants in this division generally have a wealth of experience in the sport they play and are looking to play other highly experienced players.

Intermediate (Division 2) - The Intermediate division is new for 2020! As the name suggests, the level of competition falls between the Elite and Recreational divisions. The Intermediate division is ideal for participants who aren't experts at their sport but desire a quicker, more competitive pace than the Recreational division.

Recreational (Division 3) - The Recreational division is the most casual level of intramural leagues at UNMC. Teams in the Recreational division are generally composed of participants who are new to the sport and/or primarily interested in playing for fun/leisure.


Refunds

Refunds for Intramural Leagues are available up to seven calendar days before the first scheduled date of play. No refunds will be given after that point.
