Virtual Trivia through Zoom/Kahoot at Sam Houston as well
2k/madden tournaments at nicholls state
I spoke with our eSports Director here at Akron and he suggested specific games for specific platforms
we’re using xbox and ps4 and sticking to sport games such as madden, nhl, fifa, and nba 2k
we are running FIFA and setting up divisions as platforms
for those sports games, how are you organizing such?
BC is doing PS4 & Xbox for Madden, NBA 2K, FIFA, NHL
cross platform for call of duty
Does anyone use eSports platforms that record scores automatically for participants or are most manually entering in a system like IMLeagues to track?
We're primarily doing sport games but also branching out to Apex Legends and Rocket League, as well as with our eSports club doing Hearthstone
We are offering Running league, Esports, Kahoot Trivia
00:37:05Steven Walton - Creighton
FIFA, NBA 2K, Rocket League, and Fortnite. Sport games will be done by platform.
We are working with our ESports club to organize tournaments/Leagues rules and such.
UCI is partnering with our eSports arena by putting on multiple games on different platforms such as PC, PS4 and Nintendo Switch
Currently use Mission Control to manage all divisions
His recommendations are PS4: FIFA/ xbox: 2K/ Switch: Smash Bros
Louisiana is actually running state-wide Esports Leagues through Mission Control
Oregon State doing Fortnite Fridays
we are hoping to livestream the events through twitch using OBS. So we get viewers and participants. We can "host" people on our channel if they already are familiar with streaming
Stony Brook - esports (FIFA and 2K with platform divisions) League of Legends, online trivia, sport movie brackets on IG
Has anyone come across problems with hate speech or profanity in the e sport realm? If so how does your University deal with that?
We are getting ready to deal with that ^
How is everyone managing sportsmanship during games?
A&M-San Antonio APEX and Call of Duty
smash.gg is a good platform traditionally used for fighting games like Smash Bros, Tekken, Street Fighter, Etc
we do not allow them to talk verbally, but they can in the chat. It bans language that you set as "unsportsmanlike"
Anyone figure out how to create a private server for Fortnite tournaments? Apparently Epic has made it harder to host your own tournament.
I think it is important to educate players on how to edit their communication settings while playing so that they can mute opponents since we can't listen in ourselves
I heard Geex will help with fortnite tournaments
Anyone using battlefy?
Contact EPIC and become a creator
Ole Miss is, Maria
Using Battlefy at Ole Miss
We at Akron have our very own server specifically for Fortnite that we are getting ready to use for IM’s
You need to have someone with a high number of followers on your own social media. Then you can host your own through your own server. We use a student on our club Esports team when we want to host an event like that.
Anyone playing Jack Box with staff or participants?
we do not allow any first person shooter games
Pretty much, they are adults and they should know the difference between right and wrong
Not allowed to do first person shooter games for BC either
What platform is everyone using to get the message out to potential participants? Since no one is on campus it seems harder to get engagement
No restrictions as of yet
Santa Clara is a jesuit university, so been told no shooting or violence
we don't allow first person shooter
we have avoided those games thus far.
i haven't asked... we are going to start without any shooter games and maybe explore in the future
We are avoiding those games right now. We are sticking to sports
no shooter games at soju either
we are not worrying about it. students are already playing these games, so we are letting them play
UNL doesn’t allow any first person shooters either
Our college club teams play COD and Rainbow 6, so we get saved from having to touch that realm
As long as 50% of our esports are non-violent we will allow them.
no shooter games
Regina, Canada, We are not allowed first person shooter
We allow any game to be played in our Union
nothing rated M or higher
We allow them, we feel that it would be a good idea to have these people connect with others at the university, rather then remain distant and play them anyway.
We already have an eSports program on campus - so the university standard has been set.
Univ of Denver - letting eSports club across campus do shooter games. IMs are focusing on sport-related ones
Allowing Overwatch because it features female characters which is a big pillar of our esports values
How is everyone handling settings for specific sports games? Length of game, camera view, etc...
that is coming from a combined varsity and club program
Some rules that we have developed for our esports programs including sportsmanship rules. https://drive.google.com/open?id=13ntC5h8mse9_LTkWGY3_KQiWcAqc_rPt
do you break esports participation by skill level or all free for all?
We at UNT don't worry about anything. We schedule brackets for Counter Strike, Call of Duty and Rainbow Six Seige. Most people are already playing them anyway so in our minds they should be able to play in a tournament just like anything else
At Wyoming. We have created a social league and competitive
We have an actual varsity eSports team who are not permitted to participate
SDState breaks skill level on bigger titles i.e. Rocket League and Super Smash Bros.
Limited to one club player from that club team. I.e. one player from the esports League of Legends team on a League of LEgends team. Very similar policy to other intramural programs
Same with us Cameron at UNT
Is anyone streaming their online IM's?
We treat it the same and limit the participants if its a team sport
Does anyone have a process in place for/against participants streaming Intramural contests?
we have our first livestream event tomorrow
Free for all. E-sports also us to create an inclusive environment.
What platform is everyone using to get the message out to potential participants? Since no one is on campus it seems harder to get engagement and views
we tried streaming on mixer it hasn't been that successful.
I'm preparing some virtual events for next week but I'm curious if anyone has tried anything yet other than esports and if students are actually participating.
How are schools communicating with esports participants and keeping them updated on the programs?
we’re using IMLeagues announcements and messaging in addition to social media posts to inform about our digital events
twitch is a great streaming service for esports
Discord has by far the most successful for us
We are going to set it up via IMLeagues and then allow them to play offline and then report who wins
we use OBS to stream via twitch, facebook, and youtube. You can livestream to multiple platforms via OBS. We created an event on facebook and invited people. This will be a trivia night. https://obsproject.com/
Mixer on Xbox is free
we are communicating through IMLeagues and social media. social media is all students have right now...
Geex has a good design where you can play round robin, then it can automatically split the groups based on their win-loss record for another season.
SNHU uses Discord as well for our Esports team, so we are trying to push our participants that way for info
for most of our individual events we are looking at doing ladder scheduling so that they are playing people with a similar record as them
we set up a discord server for our students to connect on as well
We use a google form for players to submit scores and it makes them upload a screen shot of the final score
you can also livestream from xbox to your pc to stream online if you have windows 10. PS4 is a little more difficult
We’re having players send screenshot of final score to IM email so student employees can administer the league.
I have been using IMLeagues and Fusion for campus wide announcements but we are creating a discord for the eSports participants and will be using that for posting scores and daily discussions
Trivia Nights (which is tomorrow)
iM team step counting competition
online chess tournament at UTA
We're asking both particpants to submit a google form after the game with a picture of the final score and a sponsorship rating.
We are also working on doing live stream yoga on FB
We are looking into starting a discord server at Cincinnati is anyone using student staff to moderate or assist? Additionally I am interested what other schools are charging (if anything) to participate (specifically schools that would normally charge for IMs)
Don't forget to share your esports marketing materials with your Student Org office - there may be students in your university community who are not on IMLeagues (therefore not getting your IMLeagues emails)
Can you elaborate more on virtual tournaments.
we are also doing how to videos using our Outdoor Rec people on how to make meals with the type of food that you would take on trips since it is non-perishable typically
Rec center staff
All staff on a discord channel and hosting trivia nights with them
Student works in the fitness center
Arkasas- We are providing online modules (8-10 hrs a week). All student employees
supervisors and lead student staff
Weekly meeting on zoom with officials
all campus recreation staff
All Rec Staff
student marketing staff
officials and im supervisors
holding a student social hour for all rec staff once a week
student leads, officials, and attendants
All competitive Sports student staff
We are trying to plan our end of year banquet to recognize our staff now that we are no longer allowed to meet in public
IM Supervisors only, No officials or scorekeepers.
Comp Sports Leads
All staff (IMs, Facility Ops, Social Media, and LGs)
Are these paid?
Sport leads and supervisors
student officials & media/marketing & office support students
We are doing remote work for our Sport Managers and Leaders. Virtual Meetings for our Leader in Training students
UNLV - are staff are getting paid. So we have assigned projects for our students to work on
Supervisors only. We are Not approved to do any online training with students (officials) unfortunately.
pending funding availability, we will have virtual training, meetings, and social times for all staff
LinkedIn Learning for schools that have that platform
Employee and Student Development
10 hours of student development and professional development from now until the end of the semester (April 25th)
for our officials, we are trying to make sport specific workshops
same on vitural interviews
we are doing remote work for all of our staff. We are doing virtual semester evaluations and professional development series
I have a small staff - 15 total including the supervisor. I'm meeting with them every few days just to check on them and see if they need anything. I'm going to do a virtual dinner with them in April. I'm using Microsoft Teams.
Toledo is doing weekly / bi-weekly lunch time chats through WebEx where our entire rec center staff can join the meeting and have a casual chat with all of the pro-staff and GAs outside of just email and group chat
Creighton is going to host some "Zoom lounges" - where student staff can hang out and build community. We aren't allowed to put them onn the clock anymore
We are also having our Leaders and Officials go over film and edit film for training purposes.
our students are getting paid even through we have no work for them
Just got off a webex call with our IM staff - purely for social connectedness as they missed seeing one another. Nothing paid by us, they just miss being around one another.
Have to do a reflection
We took the average hours of each students worked for the last 9 weeks, and that’s what they will be paid each week. The hours will not be tracked.
https://nfhslearn.com/ is free right now
We cannot have students work remotely with the exception of GF instructors for virtual exercises
Cannot assign work and pay students for "non essential" tasks. I.e. the tasks must be related to the University's CoVid response.
we are only paying for shifts that were previously scheduled
whole IM Staff Linked in Modules. they are getting paid as if the IM season is still going
reflection assignments (essays, quizzes)
Can only pay for "scheduled" hours through 4/15, scheduling them for training hours, interview times, and general office hour work now.
We're as of yesterday unable to pay students or part-time employees until further notice
We are paying students for hours they were scheduled through April 5th.
We are working with the Iowa High School Athletic Association to do training for our officials
UC - Riverside we are paying students through April 30th with projections through the end of the quarter
Paid for work they were previously scheduled for... For us it was just the trainings post-Spring Break...
WE will be doing zoom calls w/ officials do to some small trainings and education
we are paying students for the next two pay periods (4 weeks). every student is getting paid $130/week as an average, no matter what position or hours they worked or were scheduled
is anybody considering getting their staff certified in high school sports? Pay for their certification instead of paying them for working hours for attending the training?
At Ole Miss prior to everyone being sent home we did online training modules for our staff for sport training (now we cannot ask students to work per university) and we followed up by making sure they were completed a google quiz. They had to get 100% for it to be counted and paid. Again - all of this was prior to COVID-19, because right now we cannot have students working. I'd be happy to share our method
Funding was frozen, only students who are interested in volunteering will be working on special assignment, no required training unless they allow us to begin paying our students
NFHS put out some of their sport trainings for free. Our officials and supervisors will get paid if they complete those trainings.
love that idea Jessica!
Jessica how many hours are you paying them per training?
@Jake Wells - that's an awesome idea. I'm going to talk to my staff about it and see if any of them are interested in getting certified for high school or youth sports.
We are going through the training to assess how long they will take. We have given them an allotted amount of professional development training that they can claim per week.
Our university & HR decided to give all students a flat paycheck (still pending) but that is what they are leaning towards
University mandate - paying students what they were scheduled for
No pay unless they are working
University mandated 64 Admin leave with no work. Trainings etc help this out
university mandated - no pay of students
Paying for hours scheduled
PTO from the University for hours that they were potentially scheduled for through March 31
movie night with staff
Trivia via discord
I tried playing Words with Friends
Yes - iPhone game tournaments
Netflix party night
Weekly crossword puzzles or other things we can do together
still looking for players
Netflix party afternoon

Photo challenges (i.e. baby pics)
Kahoot quizzes and Zoom meetings that are optional to stay connected
FIU's online training curriculum for anyone looking for online professional development material

Where can I get more info on the trivia night?
Staff Fitness challenges

Virtual End of the Year Banquet
Creighton is going to continue with EOY awards
we will be tweeting out on our social media to recognize them
We are still having our student awards at WKU and we're in the process of putting out our ballots soon here

trying to figure out how to do a virtual banquet of sorts
Most likely recording ourselves presenting awards to students and combining into one video for student staff
Quarantine Quiz Show from NIRSA Connect https://connect.nirsa.org/communities/community-home/digestviewer/viewthread?MessageKey=8d9fd023-d441-4c10-bdba-8d491447e4c8&CommunityKey=1767c662-3eea-429e-b6e8-2834274f521d&tab=digestviewer
Jackbox games - Drawful 2 is a fun one and is free to download right now
yes…we will still provide sport-specific awards for sports that have already occurred as well as end-of-year awards
we are looking into do a virtual banquet where we announce the award winners.
Student Recognition - we're trying to be creative and use our social media to highlight their work and scholastic achievements.
unfortunately our budget is frozen and we can't purchase prizes, awards etc..
We'll mail them.
We are going to do a battle of the staff areas with virtual games - pool, bowling, cup pong, etc.
we might mail them
shipping! (or pick up when we can!)
we will mail them out later this summer
We will send them if need be to our students
We are debating doing a pre-recorded mthod
Will pick up certificates when they come back, or send electronically
we are, probably mailing
We will mail them out
its done by photo only, nothing video
can we hire Jarrode to MC all of our banquets?!
01:04:01Isaac Hughes WMU
I'll do it for FREE

We have an overall sport programs instagram and then one for sport programs specifically
only marketing team has access to social media. we have to create a plan with them to engage our participants virtually
nope - marketing department controls our platforms, but we are asking for individual access
Most of our social media communication goes through our marketing department
We have our own social media but department/university is filtering what is posted right now
we are allowed to directly engage with the students and promote our own things, but we are talking about collaborating with our Student Involvement office to offer events everyday for multiple hours
Intramurals has it's own social media platforms but everything goes through our University Relations Department and they send it out to the students through various social media platforms. University Relations controls how much info goes out so the kids don't get hundreds of individual emails.
Only marketing department at UCR
We have direct control. We created a shared calendar with our team and we have a rec department. So we have assigned slots - each department attaches their project/video/infographic etc., and the marketing team will post it. (If they need help making the graphic or video, we have a marketing team to help) UNLV
We run our own website and social media
Marketing program area post all our content.
*we have a rec department marketing team
we also use sproutsocial which our marketing department can see as well
We have access. Our fitness instructors record instagram live videos and share yoga/HIIT classes etc. videos for 24 hours for students to access at anytime in the next 24 hours

We brought either our work laptops or desktops home. VPN access
Our institution did tons of small group trainings on everything from one drive, google docs, outlook, Microsoft teams, VPN, Zoom,etc. Once we were no longer allowed on campus they did they virtually.
Lots of Zoom/MS Teams tutorials/online courses run by the Office of Teaching and Learning on campus
Primarily we've had an entire page created with regard to how to work remotely as well as providing the necessary infrastructure to be able to continue use
Please share any of the managing resources y'all have gotten. Would love to share out with our staff.
Don't be Jennifer
There was an article in IHE about Zoom and misuse that is a very good reas.
mute everyone. always.
dont show video
Use the virtual backgrounds
don't have a daycare running while on
Try to avoid having Zoom link being public to avoid "zoom bombing"
Use the raise hand function when there is a lot of people on
people appreciate you taking care of the babies
recommend wearing pants just in case you gotta get up real quick for something
Scott thought you would like that
When we set up our meetings, we made sure to provide guidelines for how to use the meetings (audio muted unless speaking, etc) and I think a big part is being able to be the meeting host ensuring that we're helping them when maybe its been forgotten or missed
Some of these might be specific to Fairmont State but here's where our IT put all our remote resources: https://www.fairmontstate.edu/itemote-work-tools
I KNEW WE MISSED THE FLORAL PRINT MEMO!!!!
If the camera is on and needing to leave the computer for a second, turn off the camera and turn back on when back

hiring freeze for pro staff positions
Pro staff are all frozen at CU.
Student Staff hiring freeze

search mode for student positions in an assumed summer start
No freeze at Regis University
just got done doing my interviews for next year for student staff. almost all of them were done via zoom including my current staff who were asking the questions
Searching of a GA, hiring students for fall
We are hiring student positions for next fall
Freeze on all student and pro staff hiring
Miami university - hiring freeze for the univeristy
nothing frozen...just "delayed"
Mr. Freeze on student and pro hiring.
our directors first day is Monday.........
No hiring freeze and we hire intramural staff in the semester they are going to work so we don't hire until the fall semester
summer camp staff hiring. still unsure if we can start camp on time or if we are pushing it back
we are on a hiring freeze and had to end any "in process" hires at UT Tyler
Nebraska is full go
all hiring was put on hold until further notice
UWF- All frozen included promotions
Go Big RED
Yes, cannot hire for anything. Was in the middle of 2nd round of our intern search. Have to tell everyone that we can interview, but cannot offer.
We have 3 pro positions open and are moving forward with them. “On campus” will be a series of Zoom meetings to be as close to normal
University of South Carolina still hiring interns via phone/Virtual interviews.
Still developing, but were set to start our hiring process for the fall right before this all started. Currently on hold, but not a University hold. Just waiting for the best approach.
search mode for student staff but on a freeze technically so will officially be hired when we are allowed to but rolling through interviews now
We finished student hiring, but hadn't started training yet. Usually use the rest of the semester to train. Not sure what to do to have students trained by the time we open - but can't pay students (yet)
Pro staff hiring depends on where in the process. Student hiring wasn't supposed to happen until beginning of next year anyway. Only working on promotions right now. -Illinois State
we’re on a pro staff hiring freeze university wide
UVIC- Can still hire
@don Umland :)
we were literally a day before our first on-campus interview then we had to cancel them. We have 3 interviews via zoom next week
UNT will be looking at hiring for supervisors for the Fall but that is all done as internal promotions so we can do so.
At WVU are continuing our Professional Staff Searches for Coordinators but pausing for our Associate Directors- brainstorming the idea of virtual on-campus interviews
We have found this a great opportunity to practice interviews with our students to aid in their inevitable virtual interview period
We are moving forward for undergraduate and graduate student positions for Fall. All employment will be contingent on have in person classes in the fall.
We are hiring Student Managers
Syracuse was able to finish current searches, i believe searches that have not been started will not be started.
will whoever controls the lobby have to be in all the calls?
Is the virtual waiting room through zoom or another platform?
It also really helps us to make sure that we're truly prepared for the interview before we get started.
still need to hire student staff. we are looking into how to complete the background check fingerprint process remotely (if its even possible) for summer camp staff
01:20:40Andrew Hay (Ryerson University)
We are moving forward with student hiring, but providing only conditional offers that explain hours will start when university re-opens.
Is anyone utilizing this time to do a participant satisfaction survey or sport offering assessment for students in planning next year’s calendar?
our participants are not happy we cancelled seasons, we figure we'll get a lot of negative feedback
Getting better at using technology
working at a lot on policy development for both IM and clubs
01:22:05Andrew Hay (Ryerson University)
Yes, both participant and staff surveys, which will help inform an overall program review.
We're doing almost exclusively planning for next year- learning outcomes and schedules and which sports
We are using this time as a way to completely revamp and update policies, procedures and rules packets for all sports
Anyone want to chat about those surveys in another call? If so, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will set it up
giving away to student workers who are doing the deep clean shifts, saving for NIRSA t-shirt give away next year :)
For any that participate in our distance programming we will get them a shirt.
Our champ shirts have 2020 on them so they are going to the fall semester, YAY
We don't have dates on our shirts so we will be giving them away to promote when we get back
Luckily no date on my championship tshirts. Learned that lesson a long time ago.
Anyone who was currently playing in a sport, we offered them shirts
Working on moving all rules training components of officials trainings to video via adding audio to existing PPTs + convert to MP4 video files
We are providing Captain's/co-captain's to all teams that sports are cancelled.
UWF- Luckily no dates on our shirts
donating shirts for the trivia night with Drew
Luckily, ours don't have years and we rotate colors every four years so we'll use them again in 2023
we use a portion of leftover shirts to hand out at next year's student involvement fair for recruitment and promotion.

most of my shirts don’t have dates so I can use them again next year. usually i donate them.
Promotion material for Summer student orientation
We have had the same t-shirt design for the last 30 years
at WSU we are forming a video data base. IM Leads will be able to break down and make play calls for clinics next year. Video review is something we have not done before
We lucked out and were able to finish our early Spring sports before the lockdown...
Will hand out a majority of them at our Rec Fest in the fall
You can donate a few of them to the National Trivia Tournament!
Plan to give to student staff- they love them
We will give them away to freshmen 5 years from now at first week events. - not joking
Anyone mailing them out to students?
Yes, Matty D
Scott, How can we get those shirts into the rotation for national trivia
we have used past shirts for giveaways at “Champ Nights Events” and we actually sell them in our proshop
I'm looking it to it Matt
We have the year, will mail them out to eSports winners
Also mailing to esport winners
Then give aways at events for summer orientation and Night at the Club event to kickoff fall semester
Does anyone know if the Intramural/Club Sports Institute is still happening?
