All-University Points System

Page address: https://www.mnsu.edu/campusrec/intramurals/points.html

Description

In order to encourage more students, faculty, staff, clubs, and other university organizations to join in the fun, the Intramural Sports Program has adopted a point system that allows for the awarding of an All-University Champion as well as divisional champions at the end of each academic year. The point system provides more incentive for individuals and groups to participate in the Intramural Sports Program by keeping the thrill of competition within its limits and placing a strong emphasis on sportsmanship and having fun through participation.

General Guidelines

All-University Points will be awarded only for activities in the Fall and Spring semesters of an academic year. Teams and organizations must use the same team name for all activities registered for, or include on the actual registration form the team name that they would like their points credited to for participation in that activity. The number of points awarded to a team will be dependent upon the classification of the activity, performance in the activity, forfeits/defaults, sportsmanship, and attendance at meetings. Teams will also be awarded points for all team members who officiate for Intramural Sports and meet work performance and program policies/procedures.

A Champion will be declared in the following divisions based on organizational and non-organizational categories:

  • Organizational Division- Residence Hall, Recognized Student Organization, Fraternity/Sorority, and Military
  • Non-organizational Division - Independents and Faculty/Staff/Grad

**For a team to receive points as an organization or a residence hall you must be currently recognized or live in that residence hall for the academic year. All other teams should be categorized as non-organizational. The overall champion will be selected based on points accumulated throughout the academic year.

Prizes

The All-University Champion from each division will have their names engraved on the All-University Points Champions Plaque which will be displayed in the Office of Campus Recreation, as well as other prizes to be determined by the Intramural Sports staff.
