Intramural Sport Officials
One of the most difficult tasks in any intramural program is the recruitment and training of student officials. Student officials are the backbone of our program. The primary prerequisites for all officials are dependability, self confidence, a willingness to learn and study the rules, and the ability to communicate tactfully with participants. These officials assume an immense task and are there to help produce healthy, fun, and safe playing environments. In an attempt to continually upgrade the quality of the officials, mandatory training clinics are required for each sport. Specific information regarding time and place of these clinics will be announced in advance of that sport season so that students can plan to attend. Contact us at 486-2357 if you are interested.
