You did do it, Norms. I'm so happy for that intro.
looking to do it for Finals/championship
Going to attempt to do twitch
I know Region IV is setting up a "regional" tournament
We are streaming games as participants want to, plan to during champ night too
Well, there's a trivia show on Twitch that's doing ok.
Curry here is trying to put that together
PIRSA will be holding a state tournament
PIRSA is setting up a state-wide tournament for several games.
University of Kentucky will be after Easter
League of Legends tournament this Sunday, probably streaming (Rochester Institute of Technology)
00:37:41Cindy Klatt UNI
UNI intramurals is working with the the club
No plans to stream yet. Could definitely use help with how to stream. Offering “Virtual Leagues” but can’t call it esports.
what we're doing to give student employees hours: they participate in the "soft launch" of trivia night or the virtual program to help assess bugs before the actual event
I am on the small committee with Cameron for the Region 4 tournament
Madden, fifa, nba2k20
I believe there's talk about UC Irvine hosting a UC tourney at the end of quarter
Can anyone from region 4 email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
That is a sick floor, WashU!
Does anyone charge for an online gaming tournament? If so, how do your “higher-ups” justify that?
What would someone have to do to host a stream with other people's gameplay?
I would love to start streaming.. anyone have a list of tips for effective streaming?
UC Irvine is definitely looking to host a League of Legends and possibly more with other UC’s at the end of our season
I got you Nick
Not charging because our student fee is still being charge to students
OBS is the most user-friendly way to stream in my experience. Streamed froma spectator view in game
We were thinking about gift card prizes
all of our potential spring programming will be free
We also aren’t charging as justification to not be refunding our ancillary fees - all our program is free right now since students paid ancillary fees.
prize of campus rec credit valid for any of our programs
we are utitilizing discord for a daily sports debate
Not charging but most likely Amazon Giftcards
Curry started using Mission Coontrol
Wyoming just started using mission control
Same at South Daktoa State
I mis-clicked on yes…
Eports Programming Poll Results: Yes-2%; No-98%
we don't run math leagues here
We always give 101%
Thanks Brennan, it's def one of the things we have to set us apart.
Talk to them Jarrode
lol I'm so glad I wasn't the only one
For those that aren't charging for virtual programming, is anyone still charging forfeit fees or anything of that nature?
I will assess after completed, through a google doc sent through IMLeagues
Here is the link to assessment data for the trivia show last night: Go to the April 1st Responses tab: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1pIpyBFi7Hk13soOp2gDaae5_IrzSTnJuDLW3Ob0mn_Q/edit?usp=sharing
Thank you for putting that together, Drew! Super helpful.
Great Idea Scott - love the idea of the survey for prize eligability
For virtual programming how is everyone planning on getting swag, shirts to everyone? And has anyone thought about getting seniors shirts?
UW-Milwaukee will be giving out all of our seniors a champ shirt.
a lot of people last week said they planned to give them out when campus opened back up, some were looking into mailing them
For swag, at UK we will mail them to the winners
we are looking at the possibility of mailing out t-shirts as well at NAU
When you are mailing them are you just sending them through USPS? I'm trying to find the cheapest way basiclaly
Trail time trials
I stole the idea of a trick shot contest
At UK we are still operational so we can mail them out at this time through the university mail (snail mail)
Current steps challenge for the month of April with students
We are about to launch a digital scavenger hunt for our community, community, with a variety of challenges, most for photo or video on their phones. never having to leave the house.
We are having a trick shot contest and we are also offering a t-shirt design contest for next year's championship shirt
April Madness Sport Movie Bracket' just went out. Polls will go out beginning April 8th.
usually (not always) USPS is the cheapest for a normal person to send mail, Jamaica
We're doing challenges. So if y'all have seen the videos of people making a sort of obstacle course for a ping pong ball to get into a cup
Trail time trials: students will go to a well known hiking trail and test their cardio to get up the trail. post a picture and your time on your instagram story and tag our rec instagram and we log the winners each week
@Tom Verrico I spent a lot of time on the bracket and have it in excel it you want it. You could easily change movies if you don't like what I've done.
what are you doing for the scavenger hunt. I have interest in it but haven't figured out how to do it yet
Looking at a state eSports league. I believe Louisiana is currently doing it.
is anyone doing a virtual golf tournament? if so how are you going to running the golf tournament?
@Tina we would love a copy too!
I am going to start charging for IT if y'all keep asking.
here's my email email@example.com
Looking into Netflix watch parties for sports movies and trying out Pictionary through zoom
What incentive ideas besides gift cards and shirts do you think would get more students to participate
Flick... you positioned yourself here. Reap it... lol
I have had interest in board games and a step/running competition
@Jarrode.... check the math.
Paying officials for taking the now Free NFHS courses based upon the approved NFHS clock hours per course. Also having the supervisors creating weekly quizzes based upon official-specific content areas they can take
Skeeps are people too!
Scorekeepers are people too!
SK would love that shout out!
percentages slightly off again
What's everyone doing with their scorekeepers??
We have been told currently we can not make our student employees work.
Outside of conflict resolution...resume building etc?
NAU - we are also planning to have them complete the free NFHS courses and do a short Google Form quiz including submitting their certificate of completion to get some hours
^^^ Sport Specific officials training through NFHS Learn Learning modules.
We want to pay staff for NFHS Learn courses. Does anyone have an idea of how long each course takes? We are looking to pay a set amount of hours rather than the time they take if theyr aren’t engaged the whole time with it.
Don't have the SKs take math classes through Zoom, apparently @Dunigan
UCR will be breaking down film w/ guest hosts for basketball and branching out to other sprots
my Supervisors want to do an all-staff trivia night where each Supervisor is the head of a team; still working on getting that formatted
We are considering the NFHS courses, assisting with interviews, and completing meetings such as evaluation meetings
All students want to know is if they will be getting paid.....for any meeting
We will be looking at modules on Canvas to continue some engagement, and online games/watch parties for fun.
LSUS is able to send students to other departments that need help. My weight room workers and IM staff are working with other departments remotely. They must sign a remote work agreement form
As everyone starts looking at updating their officials trainings I encourage you all to upload your material to the NIRSA Intramural and Staff Training Hub on google drive I have created. IF you still need access to it please email me
e-portfolio, various campus rec all staff training modules, facebook group for engagement, supervisors working on sport specific google site trainings
Our President has mandated our campus to pay all student workers through the remainder of the semester based on the average number of hours that they "would be" working.
It's that damn Drew Devore. He's so hot right now.
Creighton is hosting monthly optional update meetings for staff, just to keep them in the loop with what's being worked on, hoping to keep them excited about what's coming when they return.
Hey Drew, could you send your email, I would like to get access
Wisconsin may look to hold veterans' training online for rules review, etc and then bring them in for the field clinic
my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
at UTA, we are doing weekly staff "check in" meetings via Microsoft Teams
I was trying to move to online captain’s meetings before the pandemic. Looking at using the same blackboard system and registering captains as students in the “class” and track their completion of reviewing the captains’ presentation.
New supervisor trainings? How will you tackle "on site" training.. so when we return we have those people ready to go
we are thinking about hosting optional trainings via zoom when we get back
we are using as an opportunity to do some development so i can pay them
University of Mississippi created basic electronic trainings for all intramural sports this past year, so that we can spend less time in the classroom learning rules and more time outside on court/field
I teach through Microsoft teams and it seems to work well. It's what our institution choose to use but I really like zoom better.
we looked into online trainings, however, if we require it to be viewed, we have to pay them. So, if I’m paying them, i want to see them!
we might try to do an online training for Sport Club officer training, but we currently don't have any SC officer training at all so there's not really a transition to make like in other in-person trainings
Is anyone using the other ZOOM?
UNLV uses canvas and has presentations sessions online where they have to sign in to confirm the hours of work
referee.com is doing a case play of the day email series
Gabby what are you doing your trainings through?
Slack is another popular online virtual offices.
For video training PlayPosit is a great tool. You can see how long a staff member takes to complete the course. You can imbed quizzes and other interactions as well.
At the beginning of the semester, UWL offered returning officials the option to take a Canvas quiz prior to attending the first in-person clinic for their sport. New officials had to come in and get all of the info, then all officials were together for stations and scrimmages.
webex - university software
George Mason uses WebEx but Zoom is MUCH better
Agreed David ^
fun fact: the owner of Zoom worked at WebEx for years before wanting to give users more accessibility. Zoom ftw
Are there people looking ahead at potential budget issues, regarding Zooom and pay-for third-party softwares, and workarounds?
@Flick - Budgets are gonna be tight, i'm nervous about the future of some of our third party programs.
at UK we’ve created a group within the Team App, available on the Apple and Android stores. We’ve uploaded rules docs and other officiating docs to the app. We’ve also begun to breakdown film and voiceover game clips using iMovie. Those film breakdown sessions are also being uploaded to our app. It’s similar to what Court Club does with their weekly video breaks down, if you’re familiar with that
@Greg hear that.
@Flick we've compiled a master list of every service/program we use digitally and are being prepared to cut software that we use to save money.
we just started using slack, just for our professional staff but I can see several opportunities and benefits for using it with my intramural students
@Amy same, I've already had to make a few changes.
Has anyone thought of “meaningful” work they can give students to do?
does anyone have good suggestions for LinkedIn learning classes with that thought in mind about getting in front
99% yes, 56% no
@ Jamaica yes!
60% of the time, it works every time
Tom has the best LinkedIn Learning stuff
@Broska thank you
I'd love to here it @tom
you and I have all the good retro jokes
Has anyone reached out to IMLeagues and/or Fusion to talk about supporting eSport platforms & streaming?
LinkedIn Learning program at Florida International University: https://fiudit-my.sharepoint.com/:x:/g/personal/thgiles_fiu_edu/EbjaxJRECEdDnnpR4y8fM5MB5aVoR5klVH5A7aa7_lMt3g?e=RolP2c
Dad jokes @broska and @flick
is anyone getting pushback from their office of students with disabilities about making sure your online programming is accessible to those students with disabilities? i.e. how do we accommodate those with visual disabilities and make them feel included?
i can't like this comment enough
WOAH we did yall!!
Look at that math!
At UW-Milwaukee as of April 11 all of our students staff will be "terminated" and will be rehired once we open back up or in the Fall. We are also being told not to plan anything for the summer.
@Greg -- what do we get for that under guess?
Making Multiple Plans for Programming Poll Results: Yes--77%; No--23%
I'm still here @Gaskins!
Everyone who said over can send a champ shirt to Omaha.
Our no is because our admin wants to "wait and see"
we dont operate in the summer
UNLV is looking to the fall already
We don't program over the summer.
wait and see approach as well
Don't program in the summer
All future programing will feature digital recreation components and we have a back up plan for summer and fall that is digital rec heavy
We don't have programming in the summer.
Not a lot of summer programming for us but looking forward to extending some e-sports
UWA doesn’t program in the summer
We do not program over the summer.
we are looking to possibly offer 1v1 options as we come out from the quarantine; bocce, disc golf, etc.
No programming oncampus until mid-July.
we do not program in the summer and our campus is already closed, classes are online for the remainder of the year
We are waiting to hear about $$ decisions - whether or not we will be receiving any student fees to support summer programming
We have already been told that we are only doing remote programming, so we are just developing programming around that expectation.
since we are already not offering Summer A programming we have a target to work toward...it's far enough away now to where if we get an update it'll get moved to Fall
University just sent out an email this morning that all Summer Classes will be delivered online. No in person courses, thus no in-person Intramural Sports.
Don't program in the summer
Summer classes have officially moved online at OSU. We will continue virtual programming throughout the summer.
we don’t program in the summer
All of Georgia was told to have all classes online through summer.
At Towson, we don't program over the summer. I have been told if the plans don't work out this semester, that is okay. We are starting to look towards the fall for if NCAA sports get canceled in the fall.
FIU has remote learning in place through Summer A (Late June)
I have no idea when we are going back. We will be a 100% virtual campus this summer so we have very few students on campus
Life University is on the quarter system. We are remote for all of Spring Quarter (thru June) as of now, and our summer programming will be based on any updates with the pandemic.
Anyone doing IM Challenges to predict when life returns to normal (ie pro staff being allowed to return to campus, students being allowed to return to campus, elementary public schools reopening)? lol
01:11:11Cindy Klatt UNI
We are being told not to!
If student fees are not charged because classes are online, would you still consider programming and charging? Or no programming?
I am assuming we are going to be virtual all summer so the programming I am doing now I am extending a lot of it
at UVM we're doing weekly trivia via kahoot and we've tasked our supervisors with coming up with the trivia quizzes. That's as much "meaningful' work as we can give them right now until we get new ideas
we already run a bare-bones summer schedule because most of my focus is on summer camp, so not a huge deal for us if we have to cancel summer
Anyone else have a hiring freeze?
@Tom yep, full hiring freeze
@tom we have a hiring freeze and budget freeze right now
WashU is on a hiring freeze until June 1st so far
We are planning to look at smaller team sports for the fall
fitness center is close until further notice, sports does not happen during summer, working on fall.
@drew we are also on a hiring freeze too
Thank you all
We are a small school and I'm only a 10 month employee so aside from the virtual offerings I'm trying this spring semester I'll be done until August. We have very few summer school students so there's no IM programming.
With this we are looking at facility issues that could already affect programming in the fall so I'm already trying to trouble shot outdoor sports and switching seasons of the more popular sports to the Spring
Luckily I already had the fall schedule finished, but with everything, I have no idea how bad this will hit my budget forcing smaller offerings
Cross-training for our students that will be returning
we hire before the Fall semester starts and do phone interviews since most aren't at school yet
I think this creates more of a need to engage the veteran returning officials and get them bought in and more trained so you have stronger crew chiefs and head officials
We're working with admissions to help admitted students get plugged into rec jobs before the semester starts.
is anyone looking at getting already accepted incoming freshmen interested in virtual IMs as a way to get them engaged with the weird times?
Hoping to keep Esports part of Intramurals moving forward. This will be the first time Curry has Esports at this scale. For now it is about programming for the fall. As for staff we are going to send out applications now so we can be ready for the fall. Will do interviews over zoom
we do our hiring in spring for fall
agreed with Broska, I'm worried about retention come Fall from my veteran officials
my sports club is volunteering to fill needs
One big issue for us is backgrounds checks/fingerprinting, we can interview and make tentative selections (student staff) but can't train them until those hiring processes reopen through HR - Cinci
@broska one of our biggest concern for us too is losing all of the veterans that typically train the newbies
@Matt I hear ya...we're worried about that too
We can't engage them in virtual IMs until they are enrolled in classes per insurance restrictions.
@jamaica - yes, we are. that's a big push from our enrollment mgmt. team right now
@Amy same with univ of miss.
Same with Amy
Looking to move smaller officiated to potentially self-officiated (i.e. volleyball leagues)
@shana we are hoping some of the zooms will at least account for some of the policies and manual training and the only piece would be the site training
@Greg are you partnered with your enrollment mgmt. team campus partners to get access to them?
Depends on what university does with funding for our budget
We have three open professional positions that we are currently not allowed to fill.
We are planning to lose a lot of our experienced people in all areas of student employment. Lots of challenges with the economy and anticipating that many students and families will be affected and may not be able to return to the institution for financial reasons. It means we'll have to train better and do more continuing education.
@jamaica, I sit on the enrollment management task force for Creighton - let's connect.
Bucknell (private) has mentioned briefly that their could be furloughs.
UCOP (Office of the president) will be updating the budget soon
We are under athletics since we are a DIII and the NCAA grant positions are being cut, we were supposed to get a two year intern funded by the NCAA that we cannot have now
UW-Milwaukee will be terminating all urec students as of April 11th.
Yes, a majority of my staff are international students and this remote learning transition is doubly tough on them
Same @Gaskins, already witnessing that type of impact
80% of my staff was graduating seniors, so this year was going to be a rebuilding year anyway.
We just recently accepted our new GA, but haven’t sent a contract yet because we are on hold with finances. Is anyone in the same boat and how are you reassuring them in the meantime so you do not lose them?
We haven't hit a hiring freeze . . . yet so we're trying to fill a couple open positions as quickly as possible if we can do so in a quality manner.
For us at WKU, our biggest concern is that for those student staff who we have been told we can no longer pay, as they get employment elsewhere, will we be able to get them back
Amanda, a lot of texting and phone calls
We reduced their hours to keep all on board
At Springfield College we are encouraging club sports teams to do virtual programing and participate in challenges. In our 100 mile challenge I offer any team who has at least 5 students finish the challenge to be awarder $100 dollars for the club team.
THROWBACK IDEAS!!! Love it @broska
Broska just hit me with back in my day...
that sounds awful
Aw be nice to Broska
I love that idea! Even just for one league! They would be HUMBLED!
I need emojis and gifs for this chat at times...
catch all of US out there in stripes fall 2020!!
Broska - "well back in my day...we didn't have emails"
nobody older than me
kick hi out
You're not THAT old Jon
Is anyone who is still paying students being forced to find “meaningful” work for them to do? How many times can we redo our sports rules and manuals?
Proudly finished in 783rd place
Basketball Training Video Oscar
Atta way, Tom.
lol @brooks. we have to pay students without them working. if they work, we have to pay them on top of the stipend the university has decided
We were able to rehire our students under a “cleaning and maintenance” position so that we can track how much money we are spending toward the fight against COVID. We can potentially get paid back for those hours.
Aaron, we were told at WKU that we have to find meaningful work for any that we keep and our institution also included a letter writing campaign the university is running, but our department has decided not to go this route as all pay would be out of departmental budgets
@Aaron I made a list of remote tasks that includes creating a bank of questions that we can use for weekly quizzes in the future, renaming our storing video clips so they aren't IMG003, and taking full video from this year and cutting it into clips for training
@Brooks - I know that it is a similar type of work, but we have had some of our more veteran employees help with reviewing training material
KU is continuing pay for students based off their semester average. No work required, in fact, students working is frowned upon. Sometimes money does grow on trees.....
Is anyone else charging forfeit fees for digital programming?
Do any of you do academic class for intramural sports?
UK is not charging forfeit fees for digital programming
@ Crystal, please send me that list if you don’t mind. email@example.com
We aren't charging forfeit fees
Not charging forfeit fees at this time
No forfeit fees just an L
No FFT fees, since we aren't eating referee/staff costs by them not showing up
Not at UC Irvine
we are doing staff evaluations via zoom that the employee will get paid for
UNLV Not charging but removal from the league is possible
01:24:51Trumaine Becoat Wade
If they miss two games, they get removed from the league
i don't think we would
no forfeit fees
we got rid of our forfeit policy altogether with our current program plans
We are not, esports is the only place where someone not "showing" up would have an affect
no forfeit fees
No FF, but if they have 2 no shows, they are out of bracket, and 3+ they are removed from league
No forfeit fees
NIRSA sent this out yesterday: https://nfhslearn.com/welcome. free and simple to use
Yes to Laura!
no - we change to individual fees; if a team don't show up they are removed from the league
no, remove them from the tournament and keep it rolling
Thank you everyone!
HOW DO I INCREASE PARTICIPATION BY FEMALES IN INTRAMURAL SPORTS?
He doesn't either
Thanks to Megan, John and Lax!!!!!
i don't have any where i am :(
It wouldn't be an IM Roundtable if that wasn't asked lol
QUACK QUACK QUACK
Thanks for putting this together. Stay strong everyone.
GO BUCCANEERS -
@broska same, I have all female teams or mostly joining open leagues. not even Corec
The tampa one?
we expanded my staff to do zoom videos on various topics, twice a day.
The best team - go refs
01:27:14Cindy Klatt UNI
01:27:16Anna Bruning (Oregon State)
small school IM roundtable.... yes yes yes
Powderpuff League is one of my upcoming ideas for my school. Also thinking about opening up leagues within sports for females
(Lil Jon) YEEEEEAHHH
= %110 yes
Yes, always helpful to hear new ideas and hear different perspectives
Yes - *How can we view last weeks Round Table with Discord and Esport help?
Yes -- particularly as we start to get a better feel for Fall plans and the summer impacts
yes….please help me. LOL
You all have lovely homes!
did you really have to ask that lax?
can someone drop the esports link again
I think that was 101% yes @Brooks
Whats our shirt theme for next roundtable??
Thanks for hosting, y’all!!
