As a team captain, you’ll obviously need a team of players to join you for competition. Current FSU students and full-time faculty & staff are eligible to play in our leagues. Non-students and part-time staff are not. There are special restrictions on varsity athletes, sport club members, and other special participant groups. Specific eligibility details are available online in the Seven Principles of Intramural Sports.
Regardless of who is on your team, you will not need to have that information when you register your team. Team members are added to your team’s official roster when they check-in at the game site for the game. No preregistration of team members is required. But, it’s good to have an idea of who will be on your team because once you reach a certain point in the team registration process, it costs money to cancel a registration. That cancellation fine is the responsibility of the team captain.
Intramural Sports recommends that teams have not just the minimum number of players needed to field a team, but a few subs. You never know when a teammate will be unable to make a game. It’s easier to fill that spot if you have already other players ready. For 7-on-7 flag football, 10 to 12 is a healthy number. Rosters are unlimited in size, so you can have as many as you want. But, once a player signs in for your team, he or she cannot switch to another team during that sport’s season.
