Captain's Meeting

Typically, the captain's meeting will be held on the Thursday evening the week before play starts. It is the captain's responsibility to attend the meeting (or assign another player on the team to attend) and bring the following items:

  • Have a complete team roster on IM Leagues ( making sure all team members have completed their IM Leagues profiles and has been added to their team roster.

  • Activity fee (in cash; check made out to UWSP Intramurals and Outdoor Rentals; a credit card; or pointcash)

At the captain's meeting, the general rules and expectations for participants in Intramurals and Outdoor rentals will be discussed. Each captain will then wait until his/her team name is called out (in order that each team signed up online).At this time the captain or team representative will need to verify their team roster is complete online and turn in their payment. The captain is free to leave after their sport meeting is finished. After the captain's meeting is finished the activity supervisor will create the schedules for play and send them via e-mail to the captains. Please remember that not all teams will be able to be accommodated at the captain's meeting. There is limited space in the Intramural program, and the teams that signed up first online will have priority and first choice of times. No offensive or discriminatory team names will be allowed.
