Methods for Upgrading an Intramural-Recreational Sports Program: An Agency Report.
Newman, Richard E.; Miller, Michael T.
This study assessed the state of intramural-recreational (IR) programs at Peru State College (Nebraska) and offered suggestions for the improvement of existing IR programs. The existing IR sports program is directed by a part-time adjunct staff member with the aid of student assistants and receives limited support. Upgrading the directorship of this program to full-time would allow the college to expand the IR sports program and increase course offerings in the Department of Health and Physical Education. Specific courses should be offered that would strengthen the IR sports program, such as those dealing with the organization and administration of recreational sports, sports officiating, wellness programs, and recreation. A needs assessment and feasibility study should be undertaken to determine program offerings and scheduling. An IR Sports Council, consisting of five elected students and appropriate faculty, should be set up to assist in the formulation of general policies, rules, and regulations. A sample activity interest survey is included. (MDM)
