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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

Registration Deadline (Spring 2020)
Sunday, February 23, 2020 (6:30 pm)
In order for registration to be considered complete, a team's captain must create their team online through EZleagues AND pay the necessary registration fee at the front desk of the UNMC Center for Healthy Living by 6:30 pm on Sunday, February 23, 2020. Payment is accepted in the form of cash, credit (including Apple Pay), or personal check (made out to "UNMC").
Late registration includes:
- Any team that is not registered for a league before the passing of the deadline
- Any team that has not paid their registration fee before the passing of the deadline
If your team DID sign up before the deadline but DIDN'T pay before the deadline, then you should make every effort to pay the registration fee at the front desk of the Center for Healthy Living as soon as possible to avoid being withdrawn from the league. Please note that you will be responsible for paying the regular registration fee plus an additional $10 late fee.
If your team DIDN'T sign up before the deadline, your team's addition to the league will be subject to the discretion of the Campus Recreation Coordinator. Factors taken into consideration are the number of remaining openings in the league, how much time has elapsed since the deadline passed, any extenuating circumstances, etc. For more information about registering after the deadline, please email Alec Carstens.
The Spring 2020 season will last a maximum of 8 weeks from the week of February 23 through the week of April 12. All leagues will conclude by April 16. The first 6 weeks of the season will be the "regular season" phase, and the final 2 weeks of the season will be the "postseason" phase, or playoffs.
The regular season phase will be composed of 5 weeks of round-robin play + 1 guaranteed BYE week to accommodate participants with spring breaks. A team's results during the regular season will determine seeding for the postseason playoffs, a single-elimination tournament that will take place April 6 - April 16. The team that wins the postseason tournament will be awarded the intramural championship t-shirts on the final night of the tournament.
During league games, intramural participants do not need a gym membership in order to gain access to the gym. Gym access for non-members (for intramural games) is included in the cost of registration fees.
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.
