EQUIPMENT AND FACILITIES

Each intramural participant will required to wear appropriate, safe gym shoes. School policies on dress code will be enforced.

FORFEITS

All games will be played at the scheduled time, date and location. A team roster should be large enough so a tam can accommodate the absence of one or more players, regardless of the conflict. If a team or individual does not show up for an event, a forfeit will be recorded. If either teams or individuals so not show up, a double forfeit will be recorded and both teams will be provided with a loss for that event. 

BLOOD SPILLS, FLUID SPILLS AND INJURIES

Any person, showing signs of blood on their person or clothing, will be immediately removed from the game or activity and will not be permitted back into any activity until the clothing has been removed, or the blood flow has stopped. Therefore, players and teams are encouraged to bring extra clothing to their games/activity for such an occurrence. Any injury requiring medical attention should be reported immediately.

The student(s) will also be referred to the Carmel High School Dean’s office.  Removal from the league may also result.
