If you like sports and are looking for a fun on-campus job, then working as an intramural official is the job for you. Officials are needed for nearly all intramural team sports: flag football, volleyball, soccer, and basketball. Schedules are very flexible. No previous officiating experience is necessary though general rule knowledge/playing experience is helpful. All necessary training is provided. In the fall we will be looking for officials for Flag Football, Basketball, and Volleyball.

Frequently asked questions by incoming potential officials:
Q: Can I play as well as officiate?
A: Yes. Officials are allowed to play on a team in the sport they are officiating. A maximum of two intramural staff members directly involved in a sport may play on the same team in that sport. (i.e. only two indoor soccer officials may play on the same indoor soccer team.) We will schedule your officiating shifts around your game schedule.
Q: Am I guaranteed a job as an Intramural Sports Official if I attend the informational meeting?
A: After attending the General Officials Meeting, all interested individuals are welcome to attend the sport specific training sessions of their choice where we do a basic evaluation of each persons rule knowledge/comfort on the field.
Q: How are officials schedules made and how many hours can I expect to receive?
A: We make our schedules out for each session of intramural play and is based on the availability that you give to us. The number of hours any referee receives depends on a number of factors including availability, experience, number of overall officials, and number of different sports you officiate.
