for Referees and Umpires

7 Trends JobsJobs Resources for Referees and Umpires are all posted into this collection. Find out who is hiring and when. Find links to contacts and associations, organizations and businesses that are looking for sports officials. One common problem that I see all the time for leagues and associations in all sports is that they just can’t get enough officials.

Turnover Rates:

There are no definitive numbers for the ‘turnover’ rates of officials across all of the sports, but the most common number I see is about 30%. That is the approximate turnover rate of officials in almost every sport. That means that about one third of officials have to be replaced each season. If your association is around that mark, don’t be alarmed. The reasons for the turnover rate are often just normal positive things that happen in life. Officials move on to other leagues as they progress through the levels, or sometimes they just move to new locations for personal reasons. That makes for a lot of job opportunities every season!

Money stackUsing online resources, referees and umpires are learning to officiate in multiple sports. They are taking advantage of these shortages and getting year round, steady work. With some planning it is possible to never have an off-season by learning to officiate both summer and winter sports. As one season ends, the next one begins and some officials are never missing a day of work.

A little feature I also like to put on this page is when the ‘day jobs’ of officials in the various sports are posted. Officials come from all walks of life and it is occasionally surprising to learn what the day to day lives are like. I find it quite Make Money signfascinating to find out what officials are doing during the week and the teams are getting ready for the big Saturday game. Police officers, lawyers, personal trainers and electricians are just some of the day jobs that officials might have.
