How Important Are Officials & Umpires?
The objective of the Intramural Sports Program at The College of St. Scholastica is to provide our students with an opportunity to enjoy recreation in an organized, spirited, and sportsmanlike manner. By offering a variety of men's, women's, co-rec, individual, dual, and team sports, we are providing participants with recreation to suit everyone's interests. In order to offer these opportunites for everyone, we must provide a high quality of supervision and administration by both our student and professional staff.
The INTRAMURAL OFFICIAL/UMPIRE plays a critical role in activity/game supervision and administration. An official or umpire is under fire and "on the line" when he/she puts on the whistle and stripes and walks on to the court or field. It takes a special person to accept this role and these responsibilities to assure a quality officiated contest for all participants.
The INTRAMURAL OFFICIAL/UMPIRE will be a vital part of our activities and essential to the quality program we offer at CSS. We provide high quality instruction for our officials in the rules, mechanics, and techniques of sports officiating. The officials/umpires are paid to attend the training meetings and clinics. We view sports officiating as an active way of involving yourself in sports for a lifetime.
INTRAMURAL OFFICIALS/UMPIRES learn life-long skills while working for Campus Rec. They learn leadership and decision making skills, conflict-resolution and time-management skills, communication, common sense, cooperation and teamwork, character and conduct, confidence, composure, and so much more!
