Sports Officiating

The Assistant Director of Intramural & Club Sports is always seeking qualified officials and score keepers. Basic qualifications required of Intramural Officials include thorough knowledge of rules, officiating mechanics, professionalism, poise and maturity. Officials are paid on a per-hour basis.  Interested individuals should contact Chris Clolinger, clinger@umich.edu or 810-424-5265.

Sportsmanship

Every team is responsible for the conduct of its players and followers. Any conduct judged as detrimental to the participants, program or any particular contest, may result in loss of the contest, suspension of the individual player, suspension of the entire team, or other appropriate action. Striking, fighting or other inciting action, whether physical or verbal, will result in automatic suspension of the player(s) and can result in a team suspension. Additional sanctions may be imposed pending investigation of the incident. Individuals who have been ejected from a contest will not be eligible to participate in any Intramural Sports programs until they have made an appointment and met with the Assistant Director prior to their next scheduled game.

Physical or verbal abuse of any Recreational Services employee or fellow participants will result in automatic suspension. A team must maintain control of its members and repeated questioning of the officials, complaining, and delay of play will result in sanctions. They must also exhibit the high standard of sportsmanship for their group that is expected at an institution of higher education. Any participant or organization suspended from Intramural activities due to violation of Intramural guidelines or sports rules will have the opportunity to participate in due process to ensure protection of rights. The Assistant Director will hear information from all involved parties and make an appropriate decision. A final appeal may be made to the Director of Recreational Services.
