UNF Intramural Sports Handbook Captains Responsibilities

Main responsibilities

The captain is responsible to inform his/her team of the rules governing the specific activities, as well as the time and place they will play their games. Captains will be held responsible for the behavior of teammates and spectators. Prior to game time, the captain is responsible for ensuring that all players have signed in with the Intramural Sports Supervisor (all players should check in with a valid UNF Osprey 1card prior to their scheduled game time). Captains are urged to notify all players and fans that alcohol, tobacco and other illegal substances are prohibited on all Intramural playing sites and that no one is allowed to participate while under the influence of said substances.


The team captain will serve as the liaison between the Intramural Sports staff and his/her team. Matters concerning the team are communicated to the team captain and he/she in turn is responsible for disseminating the information out to each team member.


Information sent out by the Intramural Office should be read with care and followed with appropriate action(s). Each captain should also see that the members of his/her team are given the opportunity to read and interpret all pertinent communication. The captain is not required to attend every game
