Earl and Unit Points

Earl Points are UBC Recreation’s way of measuring a unit or individuals participation and performance in intramural leagues, events, and tournaments. Every year, the program tallies the rankings of players, be it participation, divisional competition, or successes in UBC-wide competitions. This page describes the breakdown of points for each part of UBC Recreation Intramurals.

Unit Points are tallied from teams that compete as divisional teams. Typically, this requires a team to comprise of members entirely from a single faculty, department, or residence. There is most often an allowance for a few imported team members but this is dependent on the program. Divisional Teams compete in sub-categories called Divisions that match up similarly sized faculties.

Individual Earl Points are based on a person’s participation and team rankings across all Intramural programs.

Leagues Point Breakdown

League points are based on participation, season standing, playoff standing, and level of competition. UBC Recreation typically offers Just-for-Fun, Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 levels of play, providing distinct levels of competition for every skill level of participant. More points are awarded both for participation and rankings for higher levels of competition.

Events and Tournaments Point Breakdown

Event and Tournament points are based on competition rankings. Some UBC-wide events, such as Day of the LongBoat and Storm the Wall, provide points beyond winning in a divisional final.

Hall of Fame

The UBC Recreation Intramurals Hall of Fame is an annual event held at the end of the winter semester that celebrates the participation and accomplishments of the participants of all UBC Recreation Intramurals programs. Participants can interact and reminisce with their team mates, fellow competitors, and even your rivals in a fun and relaxed setting.

For more information about the Hall of Fame, please contact Tristan Brown.

Triple Crown

Awarded to the unit whose teams win the UBC Championships at Day of the LongBoat, the Great Trek Student Relay, and Storm the Wall. The composition of each team might differ from one championship to the other, however, all individuals in question (aside from the allowable number of designated imports) must come from the same unit of constituency.  In the 2014/2015 year, we had a rare occurrence where we had both a Men’s Triple Crown champion – the Faculty of Engineering, and a Women’s Triple Crown champion – the Faculty of Kinesiology.  Does your faculty have what it takes to win the Triple Crown?
