Employment with Intramural Sports

Student Officials and Supervisors are hired to work for the IM-Rec Sports Department’s Intramural Program. The essential qualities for all employees are dependability, self-confidence, a willingness to learn the rules, and the ability to communicate tactfully with participants. Training clinics and scrimmages are held prior to the start of each sport season. Interested individuals should consult the IM-Rec Sports Department’s Jobs page.

Intramural Champions

Champion T-shirts are awarded to the Champions of each sport (teams may receive up to but no more than twice the amount of players required to field a team). A photo of each Championship Team will also be displayed on the Intramural Wall of Fame.
