Benefits of Officaiting

Make your own schedule! Whether you want to work one night a week OR work a few large tournaments a year it’s a great way to give back to the sports that helped shape you, make some cash, and give kids an opportunity to compete and have fun.  Pay is well above average hourly jobs ($25-70 per game)!

  1. Stay close with the sport(s) you love
  2. Great way to stay physically active
  3. Teaches you discipline AND patience
  4. Get into a great network of professionals
  5. You get paid well for your time
