Supervisors are responsible for managing the leagues and ensuring they run smoothly throughout the season. This includes preparing game sheets, taking out and putting away all necessary equipment, completing incident/accident reports when necessary and being available to answer questions from participants. Supervisors must know the rules and regulations of their sport(s) and facilities, and apply them whenever disputes may arise. They will also post all scores and standings and notify affected parties when there are changes to the schedule. They will promote a safe and fun environment for all participants. 
  • Referees
    All referees are responsible for officiating league games in a respectful, courteous, and professional manor, while providing a fun and safe environment for all Intramural participants. Referees will implement established Intramural sport-specific rules to the best of their abilities.  Referees report directly to their sport’s head referee and work in conjunction with the League Supervisor as well as the Program Coordinator(s) where necessary.
  • Head Referees
    The Head Referee is tasked with hiring, managing, and supervising all referees for their specific sport and ensuring a high level of officiating is maintained and consistent. In addition to this, Head Referees will ensure that all Intramural Program policies and league procedures are upheld to provide an enjoyable and safe playing environment. They will report to the Intramural Programs’ Coordinator and Assistant Coordinators while working in conjunction with League Supervisors.

Hiring is typically conducted in March for the following fall semester, and November for any positions that may open up for the following winter semester. Occasionally there may be last-minute hires, should we have new programs that we choose to offer or new available positions, therefore we take applications year-round.

We ensure that not only are all staff carefully recruited, selected and trained but also mentored throughout the seasons so they feel comfortable and confident in the leagues in which they are supervising and reffing. We take great personal and team pride and are fortunate to make many meaningful friendships along the way. If you feel you would be a strong candidate based on the job description and our working environment resonates with you, we would love to hear from you.
