Intramural Sports officials start making around $6.75 per hour, but those with experience can start higher.  We also offer internal opportunities for promotion and pay raises based on merit and/or experience.


How much do I have to know about a sport to officiate it?

Experience with sports is always beneficial for those interested in officiating. However, Intramural Sports does not require that you know everything about a sport to begin officiating. We will provide three to four days of training for all prospective officials to teach signals, mechanics, rules, and game management.


What do I have to wear to work?

Not many jobs will allow you to wear shorts to work, but we encourage staff to wear black athletic shorts or wind suit pants and sneakers. We provide officials' stripes and whistles/lanyards for all employees.


Do I have to apply for the job?

You should apply either at the Campus Recreation Center or through Career Services/Student Employment Center. We require that you attend the training/info sessions. After completing training and displaying a satisfactory work ethic, you are considered "hired".


I need a job, but my class load is extremely difficult. Do I have to work 20 hours a week?

Intramural Sports offers its officials the security of flexibility. With advance notice, we are willing to schedule you for as many or as few hours as you request. If you have early classes certain days of the week, we will avoid scheduling you for work the night before. Our policy is that school ALWAYS comes before work. We realize that your goal here first and foremost is to attain your degree.


I didn't realize that officiating jobs were available, and I missed training. May I still be an official?

We offer training four times per year (once before each phase), which is roughly the week of each 8 week academic session. If you have conflicts with the training days listed above or you completely missed training, please contact Jake Rosiek at 843.349.2800.


I am extremely shy, and I don't think I could officiate a sport where players are in close quarters or very confrontational. Is there a sport that I might be able to officiate?

We realize that not all officials' personalities are suited for officiating basketball or flag football. However, sports like softball, volleyball, or ultimate frisbee provide a chance for you to officiate without intense game situations you might experience in basketball, soccer or flag football. These sports help our officials build confidence so that they might later be willing to try one of our more difficult sports.
