Who Can Play
Rec Sports activities are available to all current undergraduate and graduate students who paid full-time or part-time registration fees, as well as University Affiliates or other members who have a current CR Membership. Complete eligibility rules are available online here.
Entry and Drop Fees
Captains will no longer be charged entry fees for their teams. All participants will now be required to purchase a Rec Sports ONE Pass in order to participate. The Rec Sports ONEpass can be purchased on an annual (Fall-Spring quarter) or quarterly basis, and gives access to ALL Rec Sports activities during that period.
Learn more about potential drop fees.
A forfeit constitutes:
- Non-appearance/No Show
- Less than required minimum number of players on the field/court/pool at game time.
- Late appearance (not ready to play 5 minutes after the scheduled game time).
- Use of an ineligible player (i.e., a player who plays on more than the allowed number of teams or a player who is not in possession of a valid CR Membership or valid UCD Aggie card).
- Cancellation of contest with less than 24 business hours notice to Rec Sports Office.
A forfeit by a team will result in a fine of $10 being assessed. The team captain has 5 days to protest the forfeit. Should the team incur a second forfeit (same or different reason), another forfeit fine will be assessed and the team may be dropped from further play. All fines will be billed to your student account.
Players may play on as many teams as they want per sport. However, the teams must be from different leagues (e.g. can't compete on 2 competitive teams or 2 recreational teams)
No possession or consumption of drugs/alcohol is permitted on university property.
