Safety / Liability
Despite efforts to make the playing environment as safe as possible, some Intramural participants are apt to be injured. Participants, coaches, and spectators are advised to take protective measures when participating in or watching an Intramural event.
Participation in the Intramural Sports Program is voluntary. SBU does not provide insurance for students who are involved in Intramural events. The Department of Student Activities strongly recommends that all Intramural participants obtain adequate medical insurance coverage.
The Intramural Sports Program will not assume responsibility, but reserves the right, to verify the eligibility of participants. Questions concerning participant eligibility should be directed to the SBU IM Student Director. The participants in the program have the primary responsibility for monitoring player eligibility.
The following individuals are eligible to participate in the intramural sports program at SBU:
- SBU undergraduate and graduate students.
( High School students who are dual enrolled are not considered "undergraduate students" for IM Sports.)
