Intramural Sports Official
Be a Part of Our Team!
The objective of the Intramural Sports Program at Winthrop University is to provide our students an opportunity to recreate in an organized, spirited, and sportsmanlike manner.
The intramural sports official plays a critical role in activity or game supervision and administration. An official is under fire and "on the line" when he/she puts on the whistle and official shirt. It takes a special person to accept this role and to go the extra steps to assure a quality officiated contest for the participants.
Each Intramural Official is a vital part of our program and essential to the quality program we offer at Winthrop University. We provide high quality instruction for our officials in the rules, mechanics, and techniques of officiating each sport. This service is free to the prospective official.
