Become an Official

Looking for an on-campus job? Become a contest official with intramural sports! We will be looking for new officials in the fall for the 2020-2021 academic year.
Officials are provided a quality hands-on experience both on and off the court/field while developing skills in conflict resolution, team building, time management, communication, and leadership in a fun and exciting atmosphere with flexible hours.

No prior officiating experience? Don't worry...our experienced staff will train you! 

See what officials think about their experiences with intramural sports by checking out our testimonials page.

Interested in officiating? Unfortunately, we do not have any open positions for 3rd quarter sports. 

We may have limited spots for 4th quarter sports.
Please fill out the application below if you are interested in working with intramural sports during 4th quarter of the spring 2020 semester (if there are open spots). 

All officials (prospective/new, returners) must complete the online application (linked).

NOTE: new officials are also encouraged to view the "New Officials" tab in the matrix below.

(a member of our administrative team will contact you prior to the semester beginning)

All officials are encouraged to join the UWL Student Officials Association (SOA). The SOA holds biweekly meetings and also sends qualified officials out into the community for other opportunities. Additional information about SOA can be shared by contacting intramurals@uwlax.edu.

A copy of the officials and scorekeepers job description can be found here.

2019-2020 OFFICIATING OPPORTUNITIES

New Officials expanding section

Each year, Intramural Sports employs students to officiate contests in a variety of activities. Officials are required to attend training clinics specific to each activity and anyone classifying as a "new" official must attend a New Officials Meeting which will cover the employment process/paperwork and provide an overview of the Intramural Sports program.

Officials are classified as "new" if they have never worked on-campus before or if it has been more than one (1) calendar year since their last date of employment with Rec Sports.

In order to work, you must have approved documents submitted to the Office of Human Resources. Please be advised copies are NOT accepted; HR must see your ACTUAL document(s)- bring them to campus with you to expedite the hiring process.
