Students are the heartbeat of RecSports and to have a successful and safe intramural
season, a healthy relationship between players, fans, and referees must exist. It is a healthy reminder for everyone involved that this is an intramural program and should not be taken too seriously. High quality of games and great competition must exist inside a safe and controlled environment. Team captains and referees work together to maintain this environment particularly concerning team and individual conduct. The RecSports staff seeks to modal a “give respect to receive respect” attitude, with the hope that teams see the referee’s respect and respond likewise. Our primary goal is to create and maintain an environment that is conducive to quality sportsmanship and strong competition in which students can come to an activity and leave feeling that they were able to play a safe, fun, and fair game.
The RecSports staff strives to be well-trained and knowledgeable about each sport, but our referees are not professionals and should not be held to that standard, even professional referees make mistakes. Teams and fans alike are to be understanding about calls made and are to respect the referee’s decision. Please make the decision every time you step on to the court to do your part in helping Rec Sports be a great place to come and compete. We need your help!
