Faculty/Staff Program & Employment


Members of the faculty/ staff and their spouses are encouraged to explore the possibilities offered for participation in intramural sports.

Sport Supervisors

Sport Supervisors are responsible for direct supervision of intramural contests, assist with administration and supervision of individual/dual sports, meets and tournaments, assist with training and evaluation of officials, assist with record keeping/posting of contest results and distribution of program equipment and supplies. Sport Supervisors are individuals who have prior experience in the program as officials (one year minimum). Current First Aid/CPR/AED certification required. If you enjoy intramural sports, like the challenge of responsibility and have solid communication skills then this is the job for you! Direct questions to the Intramural Sports Coordinator 273-5528.

Intramural Officials Program

All intramural sport officials are students at the University of Northern Iowa. Starting pay rate is $7.50/per hour for the first academic year worked and those with longevity in the program are further compensated. Previous officiating experience or certification not required, training programs are held prior to each sport. Team sports, where officials are needed, include slow-pitch softball, flag football, 6-on-6 volleyball, 5-on-5 basketball, 4-on-4 volleyball and soccer. Additional work is available with individual/dual sports, meets and tournaments.

Officiating is an excellent opportunity for students on the Work-Study program.
