Executive Summary
While attending UWW as a student, the research team noticed that for the past three years, there has been a lack of awareness in regards to the deadlines of intramural sports with the students that are attending. Before the team conducted the research into intramural sports, they knew that there was a mass interest in the range of sports UWW offered. The secondary research was a good source for resourcing the listing of the leagues available, this was because it gave us a good base of preliminary information. The main objective of this research proposal is to identify if UWW is generating enough awareness of intramural sports as they currently only give a 2-3 week period on closing the dates to signing up. We also looked into finding ways we can increase the participation by grabbing the attention of the UWW students and figuring out the main means of communication whether it be E-mail to their university account, text messages through their phone or paper posters/flyers. After the results of the survey were analyzed, we found that the majority of respondents have participated in intramural sports (73.6%). Although this is a high portion of the respondents, we noted that the majority of the respondents were seniors (57.3%), followed by juniors (21.7%). This suggests improvements for the awareness on the freshman. Based on these findings, this group recommends the creation of a program to target the incoming freshman of UWW. Some strategies suggested to efficiently communicate with the student body would be the use of mass SMS messages and e mail with a focus on freshmen. Females were rated 2.38 a scale of 1 being not aware to 5 being fully aware on information regarding intramurals and 44.6% of females have never participated in intramural sports. We recommend that more female orientated leagues could be introduced as a supplement to the normal intramurals. We also recommend that the intramural department should raise awareness on the sports offered to females.

Introduction

What this proposal will consist of is raising the awareness for intramural sports of UWW. Currently UWW has a vast range of sports to offer, but getting people conscious in the first few weeks are key.

The problem that UWW has is the lack of awareness of the intramural sports on campus. The students are not informed about the range in services that UWW can offer and thus missing the deadline.

By doing this research proposal there will be focus on targeting the students and associations to raise the awareness of the intramural sports that UWW provide.
