Che Michigan student and
iliate has at his disposal the
ilities of .one of the nation's
Best and most elaborate intra-
ral sports departments.
Che Michigan I-M program is
sided into 12 divisions, with
apetition in over 30 sports. Di-
tor Earl Riskey and Associate
ector Rod Grambeau head the
ge department, while many of
officials are recruited from the
dent body at a modest salary.
'he center of activities for the
'gram is the Intramural Sports
ilding, located on Hoover just
st of South State. Outdoor
rts are pleayed either at South
ry Field or' at Wines Field. In
ition, a few activities are held
the Union.
Che 12 divisions allow participa-
n for every male on campus.
ese divisions are as follows:
.) All-Campus: The majority of
rts in this division are indi-
Lual participation activities,
ich are open to any male stu-
it. These tournaments will in-
de cross country, twenty-one,
idball singles and doubles,
iash, paddleball singles and
ibles, table tennis, bowling, div-
, codeball, boxing, fencing,
nnastics, weight lifting, foul
owing, archery, tennis, bad-
niton, horseshoes, rifle shooting,
f and lifesaving.

Also included in this division is
team competition in softball, la-
crosse and ice hockey.
2) Clubs: The I-M Department
sponsors a club program, through
which any group of students inter-
ested in a particular sport or ath-
letic activity may foi'm a club.
Clubs generally obtain a faculty
advisor and then set up their own
program and competition. Infor-
mation about' this procedure may
be obtained at the I-M office.
3) Co-RecreatIoni The only part
of the I-M program in which there
is coed participation is the co-
recreation program held every Fri-
day night at the Sports Building.
At this time there are swimming,
basketball, volleyball, paddleball,
badminton, and trampoline facili-
ties available for both male and
female participants.
4) Faculty: There is a 15-sport
program for faculty members set
up under the Intramural Depart-
ment. Points and trophies for in-
dividual and all-year champions
are awarded in this competition.
Especially fierce is the faculty
water polo competition, the games
being played during the lunch
5) Fraternity: The social fra-
ternity program, which involves 44
fraternities in a 23-sport program,
is the largest division of the I-M
program. The sports that are
played in this division include

touch football, track, cross coun-
try, volleyball, handball, swim-
ming, bowling, wrestling, basket-
ball, paddleball, water polo, table
tennis, relays, foul throwing, soft-
ball, horseshoes, tennis and golf.
Champions are crowned in each
sport, and total points are kept
during the year so that one house
is the all-around winner at the
end of each year.
6) Professional Fraternity: In
this division there are 20 fraterni-
ties, competing in 12 sports. The
sports are touch football, volley-
ball, handball, bowling, basketball,
table tennis, swimming, softball,
horseshoes, tennis and golf. Here
again champions are crowned by
sport and for the year.
7) Independents: This competi-
tion. is for students who are not
affiliated with any of the other
divisions, .such as fraternities or
residence halls. The independent
schedule includes 15 sports; touch
football, volleyball, paddleball,
bowling, handball, basketball, ta-
ble tennis, relays, swimming, foul
throwing, softball, rifle shooting,
horseshoes, tennis and golf.
In this division there are indi-
vidual and yearly champions. Stu-
dents who desire to compete in
team sports and do not have an
affiliation in any other division
are encouraged to form teams and
enter tie independent competi-
tion. A team can enter in all the
sports or any individual sports it

wishes. An individual who wants
to compete but is not able to form
a team is invited to report to the
I-M office where the directors will
attempt to place him on a team.
8) International Center: The
competition sponsored jointly by
the International Center and the
I-M Department is carried on be-
tween students from various for-

program including soccer, volley-

minton, swimming, softball, tennis
and cricket. Individual sport and
all-year champions are crowned.
Students representing any coun-
try are urged to form a team and
enter competition in any or all of
the sports. If there are not enough
from any one country, the students
are urged to join others to form a
9) Instruction: Instruction in
almost any 'sport is available
through the I-M Department. Out-
standing athletes in many sports
volunteer their services to act as
instructors for interested students.
Special hours and facilities at the
Sports Building are set aside for
this instruction. Students desiring
such help should inquire at the
I-M office.
10) North Campus:" Since 1956
there has been a separate I-M
program for North Campus resi-
dents.' New sports are added to
this program as the need arises.
11) Residence Halls: Like the
fraternity division, the residence

halls compete in a 23-sport pro-
gram. There are 22 houses that
take part. The sports are the same
as those in the fraternity division,
and champions are crowned in
each sport, as well as a single
over-all champion.
The I-M Department will an-
nounce each of the activities which
it conducts as the year goes by.
The schedules for all activities will
be posted in the Sports Building
on the bulletin boards in the
The I-M Department also prints
a yearly bulletin which includes
all schedules, all rules, and a
description of each of the divisions
mentioned above. These may be
obtained by prospective intramural
athletes at the Sports Building.
The I-M Department awards
plaques and trophies for the cham-
pions in most individual and team
competitions. The most coveted
award in I-M competition is the
All-Around Athlete Award, which
is presented jointly by the I-M
Department and The Daily each
spring to the one participant in
the intramural program who has
been most outstanding on the
basis of his achievements through-
out the year. Many individuals
represent their teams in all team
activities and also enter .all the
individual tournaments. It is from
these versatile performers that
the All-Around Athlete is chosen.
