Monmouth College Wellness Recreation Sports Program strives to give students, faculty and staff the opportunity to participate in athletics in a recreational setting. We want to give all members of the campus community an opportunity to compete in athletics in a relaxed atmosphere and enhance their college experience.


  • Currently enrolled Monmouth College students, employed faculty, and staff are eligible to compete in the Wellness Recreation Sports program unless they have been suspended from a rec. sport and not been reinstated by the director.

  • For certain Rec. sports there are rules regarding the number of or participation of members for Monmouth College athletic teams, and the number of men and women per team. Check with the intern in charge of the sport for the qualifications.

  • Team captains are responsible for ensuring that all players on both teams are eligible, and for reporting ineligibility to the interns or director.

  • Teams that compete with ineligible players may have all games played with ineligible players forfeited.

  • The Director or Intern reserves the right to make eligibility decisions not specifically covered herein.

General Guidelines

  • Team Captains are responsible for making sure all members know the rules, have the schedule and are at the games on time.

  • The scheduled game time is the starting time for the games. Teams should try to arrive at least ten-minutes before the games in order to complete them in a timely manner. Teams have a five-minute grace period. If a team cannot meet requirements for the number of members to play the game it will be forfeited.

  • After 2 forfeits a team will be kicked out of the league or tournament. Forfeits that are made 24 hours in advance will be counted as loses and the team can remain in the league.

  • Each sport has its own set of rules, which coincide, with all other general rules. In cases of conflict, the director or intern will make a ruling as to which rules are to be followed.

  • A team must submit a roster with the names of all the players to the Trotter Fitness Complex by the required date. To be eligible to play, a player must be listed on the team roster. Members on roster may only be changed after play has started if the player will be gone for a long period of time due to illness, injury or other reasons cleared by the director.

  • All Rec. Sports are alcohol free events. No individual who displays signs of intoxication or verbally says they are intoxicated may be in attendance of an event. This will result in immediate suspension from the league and eligibility will be reviewed after meeting with the Director.

  • Each person may only play on one team per sport.

  • The Recreation Sports Program is meant to be a fun and enjoyable time for all people. Poor sportsmanship will not be tolerated. Unsportsmanlike behavior includes but is not limited to:
    • Excessive use of profanity
    • Unnecessary physical contact with participant or official
    • Degrading, abusive, or threatening language to other players or officials
  • Intern or Director in charge of the league is the final ruling. They can eject a player from a game and suspend from the league. Ejection or suspension can result in suspension from all rec. sports for the semester/year/or complete expulsion during college career.
