Bagley nature Area
Bagley Nature Area is 55 acres of forest, pond, and open area
right here on the northwest part of campus. This is a wonder-
ful place for running, cross-country skiing, walking, or any
other quiet outdoor activity with sections of old growth forest
and wildlife galore. Ski trails are groomed for classical style ski-
ing by RSOP. Go to our website (click on “Facilities”) to see the
skiing/hiking trail map. Enjoy your exploration.

Sport fields
Sport fields (including Griggs Stadium, 3 multi-purpose grass
playing fields, & 4 softball fields) are used for Intramural Sports
and other formal activities. UMD students can use fields for
informal activities if they are not scheduled for other activities
or have been prepared for an athletic event. Stop by the RSOP
office for information.

is defined as any undergraduate or graduate who is currently enrolled
as a student (day or night, full or part-time) and can produce a
University I.D. and a current, valid activity card or facilities pass.

is defined as any person who is receiving compensation for services
rendered to the University, is listed as an employee of a department
within the University and can produce University identification
accompanied by a current, valid facilities pass.

General eligibility
An individual can participate for only one team (per sport or contest).
The team they first represent will be the only team for which the
person can play for the remainder of the sport or contest being played.
An individual may compete on one men’s or one women’s team as well
as one co-recreational team.

cOmPetItIVe leVelS
Intramural Sports are offered in two different competitive levels when
possible. This differentiation is created to provide competition that
will incorporate varied levels of skill and intensity. These leagues will
compete in separate post-season tournaments. Generally, if fewer than
four teams from a level qualify for play-off competition, all teams in
that sport will play in the same tournament.

Highly competitive league

Less competitive league

team Representative meetings
Intramural events require attendance by at least one team
representative at a pre-season captains’ meeting. Intramural rules,
regulations, and any questions participants may have are covered at
these meetings. Attendance is mandatory for each team. Failure to
have a representative from your own team at this meeting will result
in your team losing the opportunity to advance to postseason play
for major team sports and a percentage of its playing privileges for
weekend or individual tournaments.

Sportsmanship is an important part of Intramural Sports and the RSOP
policy is designed to encourage enjoyable recreation experiences for all
participants and officials. Each team will receive a copy of the policy
at the pre-season Captains meeting. Sportsmanship includes respect
toward all players and officials, fair play, and following the rules. Teams
will be rated on their
sportsmanship, which may affect future play. Captains are responsible
for the conduct of their team. Play hard, have fun, and be a good sport.

Demonstrate your cooking skills and win prizes! Here’s the
recipe: Ten teams of 1 or 2 cooks will receive the same ingre-
dients (basic items typical to a wilderness camping trip) to
transform into a great meal. Our panel of outdoor food
enthusiasts will taste and judge the results. After the judges
have made their decisions, everyone eats! No one, other than
the event coordinators, will know the ingredients until the start
of the contest. Each team provides their own camp stoves (up
to 2 burners), cooking kit, utensils, spices and camp table (op-
tional). Stoves, cook-kits, utensils and tarps are available upon
request at registration. Fires will not be allowed due to spring
burning ban. Space is limited so register early.
