Non-students allowed to play IM

If you're a sociable intramural
athlete, the kind who enjoys chatting
with the opposing players following
a game, you may have to find a
replacement for the standard
opening line of, "How's classes
Why? Because there's a chance
that the player may not even be a
student at the University, but rather
an Ann Arbor resident.
Thanks to a policy change enacted
at the start of the 1978-'79 academic
year, non-University students will
be allowed to participate in
intramural sports, provided they
possess a user pass.
Non-university persons must be
sponsored by an enrolled student
and pay a fee in order to obtain a
user pass. Initiated two years ago,
the user pass policy previously
restricted participants to the club
sports, special interest, and drop-in
recreational programs at the
"We wanted people who buy the
pass to be able to participate in all of
our programs," said Assistant
Intramural Director Sandy Sanders
in explaining the change. "We're
hoping for an even more competitive
and exciting program."

The policy change presents no
*problem. for the fraternity,
residence hall, graduate and faculty

intramural divisions, which
automatically exclude pass users
from participating.

However, in the independent and
all-campus divisions, user pass
participants may play for a team or
compete in any of the various
tournaments, making recruiting of
non-campus athletes a possibiulity
for those teams seeking to build a
strong team.
Sanders doesn't foresee any
problems, however.
"We've had no complaints from
defeated teams (in softball) as yet,"
said Sanders. He added that if any
managers were upset, it hasn't been
brought to his attention.
Nevertheless, the Intramural
Department is keeping close tabson
the reaction to the policy change.
Opinions from managers and
players are currently being
gathered in deciding whether the
policy should remain intact, and the
department is watching for
"stacked" teams.
Everything's still "very much in-
the tentative stage," according to
Sanders. IM officials are aware that
once the contact sports start up,
problems may arise.
"We're just going to go sport by
sport and see how it goes," summed
Sanders. "Football and basketball
can get quite intense at the competi-
tive intramural level and people
may start complaining."

. An intramural official is


subjected to particularly harsh
criticism because he is about the same
age as the competitors. Many players
will scoff at an IM official until he
proves himself capable of handling a
contest smoothly and fairly.
Maintaining such control is a difficult
task for many first-year intramural
officials. Some won't catch on quickly.
They'll make mistakes, get uptight,
then make another mistake, perhaps
even the same one as before.
These novices have forgotten the
'Golden Rule of Officiating', according
to Sandy Sanders, Assistant Intramural
Director. "A mistake is not a mistake
unless it goes uncorrected," says
Sanders, whose duties at the University
include supervising intramural
SANDERS, WHO holds a masters in
administration supervision, believes
that officiating plays an indispensible
role in the intramural program. The
official is entrusted with the decorum,
discipline and safety of the participant
in competition and must conduct
himself appropriately.
"We try to emphasize preventive
officiating," Sanders explained. "That
is, we ,(the officials) have to make sure
people don't get hurt and that crowds
are under control. When that game
starts, the official is in charge of
"Everything" includes keeping order

executing nroner officiating

EACH FALL Sanders presents his
officials with a guide to good
officiating. He stresses: (1) enthusiasm
(2) quick reactions (3) being yourself
(4) obtaining the best viewing position
on a play, and (5) giving a dynamic
performance but not 'grandstanding.'
"The, most important officiating
mechanic is positioning," Sanders said.
"On any questionable call the official
must ask himself 'Was I in the right
position? Did I get the best possible
angle on the play?' As long as an
umpire or referee has position, players
have no basis for complaint."
Sanders feels that most intramural
participants do not appreciate how
complex an official's job is. "They're
(the participants) laymen in regards to
sports administration," he remarked.
"A lot of training and conditioning is
required in order to be a skilled official.
Just because you play doesn't mean you
can ref or ump."
The intramural officials' program
claims one record that few University
organizations can match. In the three
years since Sanders has headed the
program, not one prospective official
has been denied a job.
"LOOK AT it this way," said
Sanders. "If a history professor finds a
student in his class who doesn't know a
thing about history, is the professor
going to kick him out? No. He's there to
