UCF prides itself on having one of the preeminent sports officiating development programs in the country and we’re always looking for motivated students with a passion for sports to join our team. Please read the information below to see some of the past accomplishments of our IM Sports Officials.
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.
Each year, UCF officials have the opportunity to travel to regional and national tournaments in a variety of sports. The top officials each year are recognized as All-American officials, an accomplishment that is highly regarded in the field of collegiate recreation.
