Why Officiate Sports?

Because without officials, there wouldn’t be Intramurals. Officials are responsible for ensuring the integrity of the game and keeping Intramural games safe and organized.


  • Intramural Sports hires sports officials year-round to referee our 8 team sports. Basketball and 7 on 7 Flag Football are the first (and biggest) sports of the fall, and most officials aspiring to work any sport should begin with these two sports. The Fall concludes with Baseball, Soccer, and Volleyball.
  • Spring sports include Softball, Floor Hockey, Dodgeball, and 4-on-4 Flag Football.

No experience is necessary, we will train officials for each sport through rules and field clinics. All that’s required is a general understanding of sports and a desire to learn.


  • Hours are flexible, as many officials work 10-15 hours per week. Intramural Sports are played each weekday after 4pm sometimes with games lasting until midnight, and on the weekends as well.
  • Officials start at $11 an hour with opportunities to advance to Intramural Supervisor roles

UCF’s Officiating Tradition

Officials from UCF’s Intramural Sports program have had tremendous success officiating at state, regional and national tournaments as well as at the college and professional ranks. Below is a list of our most significant accomplishments.

Extramural Sports
