Defaults occur if a team fails to appear or is not ready to play 10 minutes after the scheduled start time. A sportsmanship rating of 0 will be given to the defaulting team and the opposing team will be given a sportsmanship rating of 2. Two defaults by the same team will result in removal from the league.
Forfeits will be accepted 48 hours in advance of the scheduled game by contacting your league coordinator via email. This will give the league coordinators time to inform the opposing team and officials of the cancellation. Teams that forfeit will not be charged a default and be given a sportsmanship rating of 1.
Participants should be expected to bring their own athletic shoes, shoes/pants, and shirt. Pinnies will be provided for those sports that require them.

Ice Hockey: Sticks, socks, pants, shin pads, shoulder pads, elbow pads, CSA approved helmet and full cage (no visors), gloves and jock/jill straps. MRU does not lend out ice hockey equipment to its participants.

The goal of MRU Intramurals is to reduce the number of defaults and forfeits whenever possible. The Intramural team understands that things arise last-minute and substitutions may be requested to avoid defaults.

All teams will be allowed one substitution per semester, but only to reach the minimum number of players needed for the game. In these situations, Team Captains must inform SPCs of the substitution requests 48 hours in advance or substitutions will be denied. Teams will not be charged a substitution fee.
