Eligibility

Article 1

Undergraduate students, graduate students and faculty and staff who have a Markin Center membership are eligible for participation in the Intramural Sports program. Any student that discontinues all ties with the University becomes ineligible for intramural sport competition at that time.

Article 2

A student, undergraduate or graduate, may participate if he or she is carrying one or more credit hours of class work and has paid their University bill. All participants must present their current Bradley University ID on site prior to each participation.

Article 3

No player may participate on more than one team in the same sport/activity. However, a player can play on one (1) Men’s/Women’s team and one (1) CoRec team. Violation of this article will result in the individual being suspended for the remainder of the activity in which the violation(s) occurred. In addition, the team(s) will forfeit all contests in which an ineligible player participated.

Article 4

Any player using an assumed name will be declared ineligible for the remainder of that sport and for all intramural sport activities. If a player is a team member, all games in which he or she played or plays will be forfeited by the team(s). In the event that an official discovers the deception prior to the event or game, the Bradley ID card will be confiscated and turned into the Intramural Office. The player, if a Bradley student, will need to meet with the Assistant Director of Intramural Sports.

Article 5

Rosters will remain open throughout the regular season and into the playoffs. This means that teams can continually add players as long as they have not played for another team in the same league (Men’s/Women’s or CoRec).

Article 6

An individual/team must compete against an opponent and/or the clock to receive and Intramural Champion t-shirt. If the opposing team forfeits the contest, the winning team will still get a t-shirt.

Article 7

Non-lettering student athletes not receiving financial aid based on athletic ability will be eligible for intramural sports competition immediately upon officially quitting or being dropped from their respective intercollegiate athletic squad.

Article 8

Any student receiving financial aid based on athletic ability shall be ineligible in the sport and/or related activities while the grant is in force. See Article 11 for related activities.

Article 9

Any person lettering from a four (4) year collegiate institution will not be eligible to participate in the sport and/or related activities until one academic year has passed since receiving the award. The rule applies to transfer students as well as to Bradley lettering athletes. The academic year in which the award was earned does not count as the first year of the one year waiting period.

Article 10

Professional athletes will be restricted in the same manner as collegiate lettering athletes. An athlete is deemed to be professional when he or she signs a contract and receives compensation with any organized professional or semi-professional team, and ends on May 31 of the corresponding school year in which he or she participated. Summer participation will be considered to be part of the upcoming academic year.
