What do I need to play?
Besides the desire to have fun, play hard and exhibit good sportsmanship, appropriate athletic shoes and apparel must be worn. Equipment is provided for all IM activities. Most equipment is also available for check-out from the UC Rec ID Desk for practice.
How many games do I play?
Depending on the number of entries, teams usually play three pre-season games followed by a single elimination tournament, while individual and dual sports are usually scheduled as single or double elimination tournaments. Teams and individual participants must maintain a “B” average in sportsmanship to advance regardless of their win/loss record.
