dc.description.abstract The purpose of the study was to determine the current use of sportsmanship regulations by Division I intramural sports programs and the perceived effectiveness of such regulations by intramural sports administrators. Subjects consisted of intramural sports directors, associate intramural sports directors, assistant intramural sports directors, intramural sports coordinators, and graduate assistants. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics. A self-constructed survey was designed to assess the current use of sportsmanship regulations by Division I intramural sports programs and the perceived effectiveness of such regulations by intramural sports administrators. The survey was administered using the inQsit program developed at Ball State University. An on-line electronic survey was posted on the National Intramural Recreation Sports Association (NIRSA) list-serve. Data were collected concerning four research questions. Results indicated that 81% of intramural sports programs use some form of sportsmanship regulation. The most common form (78%) used was a sportsmanship rating system. The individuals responsible for managing the regulations were primarily student employees consisting of officials (98%) and supervisors (83%). Ninety eight percent of intramural sports administrators viewed their regulations to be either somewhat effective or effective. Finally, 76% of intramural sports administrators perceived poor sportsmanship to be a minor problem. en_US
