All students, faculty, and staff may participate in the Intramural program. A student is defined as a person enrolled in The College of New Jersey that is paying a student activity fee. All part-time students and non- matriculated students who have been assessed an activity fee are eligible to participate. Faculty/Staff members may organize their own teams. However, they may play on the same team with students as well.
Ex-Varsity players will be permitted to participate in intramurals under the following guidelines: An ex-Varsity player is defined as any player who won a varsity letter In the A-league only 3 ex-Varsity players will be allowed per team Players who participated in varsity sports more than 5 years ago are not considered varsity athletes any more Individuals who are participating in a collegiate sport for the current season will be ineligible to participate in that intramural sport Teams using illegal players will be suspended!!!
PROTESTS INVOLVING JUDGEMENT CALLS BY AN OFFICIAL WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED! A protest can only be made based on rule interpretation or player eligibility. All rules can be found on the Intramural webpage. Protest must be put into writing and sent to Intramural Director and Assistant within 24 hours of the contest.

Teams will consist of a goalie and five floor players with substitutes. The game will consist of three periods, each ten (10) minutes in length. No overtime in the regular season. In the playoffs, a five (5) minute sudden death period will be played until a winner emerges. Stoppage of play without a penalty is caused by: Injury Unplayable ball (out of bounds) Frozen Ball After a Goal Off-sides Illegal Hand Pass
Any ball played off the hand in the offensive zone may only be touched by that player. It cannot be touched by a member of the same team. Abuse of the official WILL NOT be tolerated. This will result in a five (5) minute penalty (served by another player on the team) and a game ejection and possible suspension from all intramural activities. No floor players are permitted in the goal crease for any reason. Exception: if knocked into crease by opposing player.
The goalkeeper may not hold the puck outside the goal crease. He/she may not hold it if he is not under pressure. This is a delay of game. If a player breaks a stick, they must drop the stick immediately. Throwing or not dropping a broken stick will be a one minute penalty. Team Captains are responsible for their team's actions and are subject to penalties. Stick abuse will not be tolerated. This includes throwing, slamming, or kicking of the hockey sticks. Failure to abide by this rule will result in an immediate ejection and a minimum of a one (1) game suspension.
Team Captains are required to assist the Program Supervisor in setting up goals and disassembling after games. The Program Supervisor is considered a referee when a flagrant penalty occurs outside the official's view. Players may attempt to block a shot from a stationary position; i.e. kneeling down from where they are standing. Players may NOT attempt to block a shot while moving; i.e. sliding across in order to block the shot. Due to the outbreak of fights, there will be NO CHECKING. An area in front of the goal will be the only place where any intentional contact will be permitted. The defensive player will be allowed to tie up or clear any offensive player from a zone in front of the net. The check still must be within the confines of a legal check. Checking of a serious nature will result in an immediate ejection at the officials and program supervisors discretion.
Checking Tripping Hooking Slashing Butting Crosschecking Interference Boarding High Sticking Roughing Illegal Shot Block Broken Stick Violation A player who is assessed three penalties in one game will be ejected from that game.
Fighting This will be followed by an automatic ejection from the game, the league and all intramural activities for a minimum of one year. The penalty will be served by another member of the team. Accompanying violations which results in a serious injury, including bleeding, will result in a suspension of (2) games to one year.
A team may not attempt a shot until a female team member has touched the ball in the offensive zone.
If you do not have a team, please meet down front. Captains who need additional players, please meet down front as well.
