Summer Intramurals -- A Programming Challenge.
Graham, Peter J.; Morris, Alfred F.
This paper is designed to assist intramural administrative personnel in the development of summer school programs. The text focuses on the summer school intramural program developed at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. The topical areas covered include (a) program history, (b) staffing, (c) facilities and equipment, (d) scheduling, (e) team/individual/dual sports offered, (f) modification of sport rules, (g) awards, (h) recreational activities (free play), and (i) publicity. The author states that an evaluation of the Massachusetts program provides evidence demonstrating that even during periods of declining summer school student enrollments, a well designed and administered program can still continue to experience an increase in student participation. The paper concludes with a discussion of how increased participation, coupled with the return of the major portion of program funds to students in the form of wages, can be used to justify increased program financial allocations.
