Student intramural officials

BGSU students interested in officiating or score keeping for Intramural Sports are required to attend a Group Hiring Clinic/Training in order to be considered. Applicants are not paid for attendance at these clinics and are responsible to know the rules for the sport in which they are interested. Rule downloads are located on the IMLeagues website. Once hired as an Intramural official or score keeper, those employees with favorable ratings/evaluations may be recruited to work IM sports throughout the academic year.
