Survey of Iowa State University Students Concerning Intramural Sports and Related Sports Interests.
Maas, Gerry
This survey attempted to measure student involvement in intramural sports and related interests. A three-part questionnaire dealing with personal information, intramural sports, and related sports interests was completed by 1,159 Iowa State University students. The data indicated the following: (a) most students surveyed either participated in intramural programs or wanted to; (b) team sports most often selected were sports the respondents had participated in, but more leisure-time recreational sports were indicated as sports they wanted to play; (c) most respondents participated in the intramural program at least once a year and usually once a week; (d) major reasons for not participating were conflicts with class, study, or work; (e) most students either participated in or wanted to participate in coeducational recreation sports; (f) respondents obtained intramural sports information from student newspapers, intramural managers, posters, and world-of-mouth; (g) financial support came from physical education budgets or a combination of this budget with student fees; (h) students participating in intramurals supported intercollegiate athletics; and (i) students indicated high involvement in related sports interests through television and newspaper coverage. (A copy of the questionnaire and tables indicating statistical results of the survey are included.) (JS)
